Event Description

Three themes run throughout the program: 
  • Passive building as the best route to Net Zero 
  • Large scale multifamily and commercial passive buildings growing strong
  • Climate-specific standards, including the release of the report from PHIUS/BSCs research project


Sessions will range from very technical such as Dr. Hideki Shibaike's hygrothermal analysis of passive houses in hot humid environments in Japan, to the Builders' Hootenanny where folks who've built passive houses talk about on-site challenges. We'll also have policy experts, including the U.S. Department of Energy's Sam Rashkin. And for raters and quality assurance pros, we've got RESNET Executive Director Steve Baden presenting.
