June 17, New York City
Thank you to this year's 375 participants - it was energizing.
building bigger: going massive
Passive House, the leading international building standard for high-performance and low-energy construction, is undergoing a transformational focus toward the big buildings we use and occupy every day. No longer the exclusive bastion of single home “first adopter” pioneers, Passive House is now focusing on our apartment buildings, our schools, shops and office buildings.
NY14 Passive House Conference & Expo is an exploration of these bigger, universal building types, with presentations showcasing concrete examples by leading practitioners from around the world. It is also an Expo of leading component and service providers that cater specifically to the Passive House market. Both the conference and expo are focused on delivering information to professionals.
So if you design, build or own big buildings, this expo will give you the practical context to go Passive. See you Tuesday, June 17th in New York City.
Passive House Primer: If you’ve been meaning to find out the A, B, Cs of Passive House, you might also consider taking The Passive House Primer Course, the day before the actual Conference and Expo. Find out more here.
About Passive House: Passive House is an international building standard developed by the Passive House Institute (PHI), located in Darmstadt, Germany. Building to the Passive House Standard reduces our buildings’ operational energy demand to an optimized extent through passive measures and components such as insulation, airtightness, heat recovery, solar heat gains, solar shading and incidental internal heat gains. Passive House reliably delivers up to approximately a 90% reduction in heating and cooling demand and up to a 75% reduction in overall primary energy demand when compared to our existing building stock. Passive House buildings affordably and predictably provide the most resilient, comfortable and healthy interior environments. For more information on its meaning read NYPH blog posts:
