This presentation offers an introduction to the Passive House standard for newcomers and experienced professionals alike. We’ll cover the importance of this building standard for the future of energy efficient construction and climate change mitigation.

Global climate change is the most urgent challenge humanity faces today, and a big part of the problem is carbon emissions from our buildings. In New York City, building energy use accounts for 71% of city-wide emissions.

Passive House design is the best way to make both old and new buildings more efficient. This webinar will highlight the best ways to optimize a building’s outer shell to conserve energy by: ensuring airtightness, using heat/energy recovery & ventilation, eliminating thermal bridging, increasing insulation, and employing efficient daylighting. This presentation will provide you with the best practices to build a high performance building that meets the rigorous standards of Passive House.
