Event Description

Expectations for building occupant comfort, health and efficiency are increasing simultaneously. The Passive House standard meets all of these requirements at once. By producing buildings with energy demands that can be met at a renewable scale of production, Passive House can future-proof our communities and put California on track to meet our greeenhouse gas emission reduction targets. The future of building is here!

An in-depth look at the Passive House standard by the leading local experts in the field, this webinar will:

*Detail current retrofit and new construction Passive House projects and approaches in the Bay Area
*Retrofit lessons learned and phased approaches
*Illustrate how Passive House meets or exceeds the California *Energy Efficiency Strategic Plan, and makes net-zero and energy-positive buildings feasible TODAY in the most cost-effective way possible
*Explore how the Passive House standard can integrate with and enhance GPR and other green building rating systems.
