2019 Net Zero Fellowship


In 2019, Energy Trust’s Net Zero Fellowship grant was awarded to Katy Anderson while she was an energy analyst at Glumac. Katy’s research focused on increasing the industry’s knowledge of cost drivers associated with net-zero multifamily new construction. By developing resources for design teams and energy modelers to estimate costs, she aimed to make it easier to optimize energy savings per dollar invested.
