BuildingEnergy Boston to Focus on Transforming Existing Buildings at March 23 & 24 Event


[Editor’s Note: BuildingEnergy Boston has been canceled due to concerns about the Novel Coronavirus.] Passive House Accelerator is pleased to announce that we will be media partners with the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association for this year’s BuildingEnergy Boston + Trade Show, which will take place March 23 and 24 at the Westin Boston Waterfront (425 Summer Street, Boston, MA, 02210). The theme for this year’s event is Transforming Existing Buildings, and much of the program will place additional emphasis on decarbonization and the means by which the industry can draw more diverse communities into discussions about sustainability.

The BuildingEnergy Boston Conference + Trade Show is an event designed by and for practitioners in the fields of high-performance building and design, energy efficiency, and renewable energy. It brings more than 1,200 industry leaders and emerging professionals together to learn from and share ideas with each other. A full list of attendees can be found here.

This year’s conference co-chairs—Cammy Peterson of Boston’s Metropolitan Area Planning Council and Sonia Barrantes of Maine-based Ripcord Engineering—have designed a program of sessions that will explore a broad range of topics. Some will speak to industry at large, while others will be more focused on certain specialized fields and building components. The conference is an opportunity to broaden horizons, as many speakers and attendees will come from outside of the Passive House community. That said, the conference also includes several Passive House-focused sessions led by top practitioners and policy professionals.

The event is also a trade show, and a full list of exhibitors can be found here. Meanwhile, following the first day of the conference NESEA will be hosting NESEA Night, which is its annual awards reception. It’s a great chance to unwind and to connect with your fellow attendees in a more relaxed setting.

We look forward to seeing you in Boston!
