In this episode, Passive House Podcast host Matthew Cutler-Welsh interviews Bronwyn Barry, board chair of North American Passive House Network (NAPHN) and the “International Keynote” speaker for the upcoming South Pacific Passive House Conference. Bronwyn recounts how she first discovered Passive House, her stint (post-Great Recession) selling European high performance windows to architects by educating them first about Passive House design, and her leadership in the North Passive House movement, including tireless policy advocacy work.
