Our goal is as ambitious as it is necessary: where federal agencies will not take the lead on climate change and greenhouse gas reductions, the market must.

Interest and advocacy of Passive House standards is surging globally. Passive House building standards are continuously cited by governments across Europe and North America as a vitally important for delivering the carbon emissions reductions required by the Paris Climate Agreement and are uniquely equipped to adapt contemporary life to the demands of a warming planet.

Through a combination of innovative design approaches and technologies, Passive House standards have been shown to reduce building heating and cooling energy consumption by up to 90%, all while maintaining a comfortable, healthy and consistent year-round indoor air environment. As the number of Passive House Certified buildings continues to expand rapidly, it has never been more important for professionals and practitioners working on energy efficiency initiatives, high performance buildings and renewables to become familiar with techniques and materials, not to mention one another.

This year’s conference recognizes the challenges facing energy efficient and environmentally responsible buildings, and calls on practitioners of every kind to come together to maintain our momentum. Our goal is as ambitious as it is necessary: where federal agencies will not take the lead on climate change and greenhouse gas reductions, the market must.

Presentations and panel discussions will provide a comprehensive look at the Passive House building standard through expert testimonials and evaluations. Notable organizations representated at this year’s conference include The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), Passive House Institute (PHI), and many more.

NYPH17: Towards Market Transformation will be held on June 16th, 2017 at the Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 W 18th St, New York, NY 10011. For a complete schedule of speakers and topics or to register, visit nypassivehouse.org/new-york-passive-house-conference.
