Come join us for a screening of an archived webinar from Greenbuild 2011. The Passive House approach (Passivhaus in German) is one of the world's most aggressive, proven approaches to radical energy reduction, durability, IAQ and thermal comfort by design. This session will introduce and explore the Passive House standard design approach and requirements as well as demonstrate its application to projects in the North American context. This interactive session will introduce some of the barriers and opportunities seeking input from attendees for superior home energy performance.
