- The Oakland EcoBlock, Phase II: A Zero Net Energy, Low Water-Use Retrofit Neighborhood
- The EcoBlock is an urban sustainability research and retrofit project in Oakland, CA that brings together residents of a local neighborhood block and a multi-disciplinary team of experts from UC Berkeley, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, the City of Oakland and local professionals. Built on local community buy-in, the project seeks to implement the master plan developed in Phase I of the EPIC Challenge: Accelerating the Deployment of Advanced Energy Communities. The developed master plan includes an integrated microgrid including rooftop photovoltaics, flywheel storage and direct current (DC) distribution backbone system that demonstrates a highly-efficient, affordable neighborhood block-scale energy (for home and transportation) water, and wastewater treatment-andreuse platform and retrofitting-process that can be replicated across California and the United States. It seeks to advance preliminary research of the integrated, whole-systems approach from a promising schematic level to a detailed, design level; to build a life-cycle and financial cost-benefit analysis; and to develop innovative business models so that stakeholders can promote. its rapid deployment and scaling.
