North American Passive House Network Conference and Expo
October 17, 2018 - October 21, 2018$10.00 – $695.00
Join North America’s Passive House community as it convenes in a hotspot of Passive House design construction: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania! Thanks to a strong professional base, innovative governmental policy supporting Passive House, and a community of forward-thinking developers and housing agencies, Pennsylvania is home to one of the largest concentrations of major Passive House and other deep green development on the continent.
Passive House is a rigorous standard for energy efficiency resulting in low energy use for space heating or cooling. Building professionals have used the standard to construct residential properties, office buildings, hotels, prisons, schools, hospitals, supermarkets, and mixed-used buildings. The United Nations recently identified the Passive House design concept as one of the best paths to mitigate global warming caused by the built environment.
The North American Passive House Network conference annually brings together Passive House design experts, and manufacturers of products that perform to the levels needed to achieve the significant degree of sustainability found in Passive House projects. Government officials, financial professionals and other interested parties will also attend, with all
attendees able to learn of the latest advances in Passive building design and construction.
The conference is hosted locally by Passive House Western Pennsylvania (PHWPA), a regional organization dedicated to the advancement of the Passive House concept as the path toward buildings that will actually deliver comfort at very low energy usage levels.
Visit the North American Passive House Network website for additional information and registration information. Take this opportunity to connect with talented and passionate professionals from around the world, and learn best practices for applying this rigorous standard to your next project.
