Boston, Massachusetts – March 14, 2003 [] The annual competition, part of the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association’s (NESEA) Building Energy 2003 Conference, recognizes design projects that advance the aesthetics of green buildings. The Massachusetts Technology Collaborative’s Renewable Energy Trust sponsored the competition, which was open to buildings completed after January 1, 1998 in the northeast United States, and to design projects developed by students living in the region. NESEA organized the competition. Honors for design and building excellence for either new construction or renovations were given in four award categories: Places of Learning, Places of Work, Residences, and Solar Electric Buildings.
