- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
The Oregon Built Environment & Sustainable Technologies Center (Oregon BEST) is focused on connecting Oregon university researchers engaged in green building technologies with Oregon architects, builders and developers with the ultimate goal of creating new green products and jobs for Oregon.
Examples include: three PSU professors just received $600K to see if solar panels and green roofs can be installed in close proximity to benefit both (local companies, PGE, and City of Portland are collaborating); a UO architecture professor has designed a unique solar awning and is looking to partner with an Oregon manufacturer to produce and market this product; OSU faculty are collaborating with a Portland startup to see how under-recycled products such as styrofoam meat trays can become building insulation.
Oregon BEST is leveraging Oregon's position as an international green building leader to bring new work to Oregon's green building industry and to transform the state's green building research into new products and technologies produced by new and existing Oregon companies.
