Free for Students!

Please note this workshop is only open to students that are in their 3rd, 4th, or 5th year of school or are in a Masters/PhD program.

The EDR DesignShift Charrette is a two-day interactive workshop for California University and College students - that's you! You will work with real industry professionals using integrated design to develop a zero-net-energy building concept over two intensive days of design!

You will work in teams to collaboratively create a zero-net energy building using a series of methods and tools (free to download) to develop and quantify energy savings.

It doesn't stop there! Participating in this charrette qualifies each team to enter a design competition. Each member of the winning team will receive an electronic device!

This charrette is 100% funded by Energy Design Resources (EDR) and by Southern California Edison (SCE).

You should sign up if you:

  • Are a student (3rd, 4th, 5th year or Masters/PhD) of architecture, engineering, business, landscape architecture, interior design, sustainable emphasis, construction management, urban planning, building science, environmental engineering, human psychology, or are just interested in sustainable design.
  • Are committed to developing a sustainably designed zero-net energy built environment.
  • May be entering the building industry after school (real estate development, building design, construction, utilities, city planning, or similar)
  • Want your Integrated Design Charrette Certification through Southern California Edison.
  • Want a chance to compete in the EDR DesignShift Competition.
  • Want to learn how to make buildings that can change the world—obviously!
