Clip: An Overview of Passivhaus
Please note this is a past event.
Join the Building Energy Exchange for this discussion of two
major Passive House events in Europe; the International Passive House
conference in Leipzig and a carefully planned fact finding mission to Brussels,
where Passive House is now mandated by law.
Passive House is having a breakout year in New York
City. The high-comfort, low-energy
building standard was featured prominently in De Blasio’s climate action plan, One City:
Built to Last, and interest is growing across the sector, in both public
and private circles. Several events stand
out in the Passive House calendar this season.
In April, the International Passive House Conference convened in
Leipzig, Germany, with our Managing Director, Yetsuh Frank, on hand to connect
with the creators of the Passive House standard and learn about their new
standard for building retrofits, EnerPHit.
In a similar vein, a mid-May fact finding mission to Brussels has been
organized to connect NYC professionals and policy makers with the stakeholders
in Brussels responsible for mandating Passive House certification for all
buildings. And here in NYC, New York
Passive House is holding their highly anticipated 2015 conference in June 11th.
Our June 2nd event will include reflections on
the trips to Leipzig and Brussels from folks that took part in them, as well as
a short primer on the upcoming NYPH 2015 conference on June 11th.
You can read Yetsuh Frank’s reflections on the Passive House
Conference in Leipzig on our blog, Insight, here.
