Passive House is a building standard which results in a 90% reduction in building energy demand for heating and cooling. Since buildings make up a third of the world's energy consumption, focusing on improving our buildings can have a significant effect on our global energy demand.
This is especially relevant in NYC, where buildings contribute to 71% of the city's carbon emissions and 94% of the city's energy consumption.
The 2016 North American Passive House Network Conference will feature experts and professionals in the field of real estate, policy, architecture & design, and will offer an excellent platform to boost Passive House as a sustainable solution to reduce carbon emissions from buildings' energy consumption.
