2015 Race to Zero Student Design Competition

Let the games begin! Please note that registration has opened for the upcoming 2015 Race to Zero Student Design Competition. The inaugural year of this program (formerly known as the DOE Challenge Home Student Design Competition) brought together 28 university teams to compete to design cost-effective zero energy ready homes for mainstream builders. The winning teams produced market-ready, state-of-the-art zero-energy-ready design solutions for high-performance homes that are energy efficient, comfortable, and durable. Teams competed in a high-energy juried event at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colo. The event was such a success that we're repeating it in 2015.


Registration for the competition is now open and accessible via the Race to Zero web site, along with the 2015 Student Design Competition Guide, which provides complete details on competition requirements. If you have any questions, please contact Heather Stafford at racetozero@ee.doe.gov.
