Energy Trust of Oregon:

Please join us in congratulating Mark McKechnie of Oregon Architecture, Inc., the recipient of our 2020 Net Zero Fellowship grant. Mark has been a practicing architect for over 40 years. For the past 12 years, he has been the principal architect of Oregon Architecture, Inc., an architecture firm in Southern Oregon that specializes in historic redevelopment, energy-efficient structures, assembly uses and multifamily housing.

Mark will use funding from Energy Trust of Oregon’s fellowship grant to research cost drivers associated with net-zero affordable housing in Oregon. Based on his research, Mark will create resources that developers, designers and construction teams can use to evaluate a range of energy consumption reduction options and rate them according to cost of construction and return on investment.

Energy Trust is proud to support and celebrate innovative thinkers leading the way to a net-zero future. We’re excited to share Mark’s progress with you in the coming year through our training and education series, and look forward to seeing the results of his research.
