The Global Passive House Showcase will return on January 10 with special guests Bomee Jung (Topsight Advisors) and Yu Ann Tan (Rocky Mountain Institute). The two will present findings from their report Decarbonizing Homes: Improving Health in Low-Income Communities through Beneficial Electrification, which asked the question: “how can we maximize the health benefits of building decarbonization, particularly for communities that shoulder the heaviest health burdens of a fossil-fueled world?” Get the Showcase Zoom Link.
