PPI SUPPORTS DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY (DOE) RACE TO ZERO
Since 2015, PPI's Building & Construction Division (BCD) has been a proud supporter of the Department of Energy's Race to Zero student design competition. The Race to Zero is an annual competition, open to students and faculty from any interested collegiate institution. The competition is based upon a real-world scenario where a builder is developing a new high performance home product line or needs to update an existing product line (house plan) to a high-performance house design. College teams are posed with a design problem and are asked to either create a new house design that satisfies the project requirements or redesign an existing floor plan. The mandatory performance target is the DOE Zero. Energy Ready Home specification.
