Under what conditions do ΔG and ΔG° = 0 respectively?

∆G will only equal zero at equilibrium.

∆G˚ is equal to zero in the unusual situation that K (equilibrium constant) is equal to 1 at that temperature. It is unusual because K=1 means that for a simple reaction (R--> P) the concentrations of both the reactant and product are equal. This implies these two compounds have the same Standard Gibbs Free Energy.
