Zero Energy Ready Oregon (ZERO) is a coalition working to support Oregon on a path to zero energy homes and buildings in ways that benefit all Oregonians.

In 2017, Governor Kate Brown signed Executive Order 17-20 that mandates code amendments to require newly constructed buildings to become more energy efficient by 2023. The executive order sets Oregon on the path to zero energy by 2030.

To achieve this endpoint by 2030, ZERO has brought together a coalition of like-minded nonprofit, local government, and industry allies to help put all buildings in Oregon on the path to zero energy.


The ZERO coalition is proud to be a sponsor of the first annual Sustainable Building Week (SBW) October 8 - 14!  Join us for our SBW open house on Wednesday, October 10, that's all about ZERO. Learn best practices for building zero energy, what builders and non-profits are doing to make zero building more affordable and accessible and how you can get involved in getting Oregon on the path to zero energy by 2030.
