NY15 Passive House

The Building Energy Exchange is proud to partner with New York Passive House on their its 4th annual Conference & Expo.

This one day event will demonstrate how the Passive House standard can help New York City meet Mayor Bill de Blasio’s ambitious goal to reduce city-wide carbon emissions 80% by 2050 detailed in his climate action plan One City: Built to Last. Passive House is a building standard that reliably and affordably delivers deep cuts in energy use proportionate to our climate challenge, while providing increased comfort, indoor health and climate resilience, and can be an integral part of net zero and energy positive buildings.

  • Retrofitting our buildings to Passive House performance
