White House announces Passive House initiative in New York

President Obama announces new actions to bring renewable energy and energy efficiency to households across the country, advancing clean energy technology innovation, cutting energy bills, and creating jobs.

The White House press release includes an initiative of New York State Homes and Community Renewal to add Passive House certification to its RFP for preservation and creation of high quality affordable multifamily housing. Passive House is a proven method of providing comfortable, healthy, energy-efficient buildings that complements other programs, such as LEED. Certifying to the international Passive House Standard provides proof that your building is among the best performing in the world.

Duncan Architect’s experience in multifamily Passive House design would be a great addition to teams applying for funding through the New York HCR RFP. Contact greg@duncanarchitectpllc.com for more information.
