New York Passive House (NYPH) is hosting an event on March 15, 2011. Jotte Seghers will present some Passive House projects he has worked on in Belgium including a multifamily apartment building, a school, and an entire neighborhood. For those who are new to the green building standard, I will present “Passive House 101” with a focus on insulation.
The Passive House standard is growing quickly in New York. NYPH was founded in 2010 and now lists 15 projects on its website.
A recent study of Passive House homes in Germany showed that these houses cost 95% less to heat than typical older buildings. The article is in German, but here is a link to it via Google Translate.
Please RSVP so that security can let you into the building.
