PH Happy Hour (Wed.): World’s 1st Passive House Car Dealership + Top 10 Spot by Katrin Klingenberg

April 13, 2020


The 5th Global Passive House Happy Hour takes place this Wednesday, April 15th:

4pm Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, LA
6pm Chicago
7pm New York, Toronto
12am London (Thursday)
1am Darmstadt (Thursday)
9am Melbourne (Thursday)

This week’s presenter will be Andrew Peel of Peel Passive House Consulting in Toronto, Canada. He’ll be presenting about the Passive House Subaru dealership in Red Deer Alberta for Scott Subaru, the world’s first Passive House car dealership and service center.

How did Andrew and team account for the thermal energy impact of all the cars arriving at the shop for maintenance—some red-hot from 20 miles of driving, others ice-cold from 30-below nights? What about the ventilation needed to keep indoor air quality safe with cars running indoors during diagnosis and repair? And what was the owner of this business that sells an inherently carbon-intensive product thinking when he chose to pursue Passive House?

Join us to dive into these and many more interesting questions with Andrew.

PLUS! We will also be treated with a guest appearance by Katrin Klingenberg, Executive Director of PHIUS. Katrin will present a Late Night-inspired “Top Ten on How I Survived the Coronavirus” that you won’t want to miss.

Come connect with over 200+ members of the global Passive House community at this fast-paced and fun get-together. And don’t forget to bring a beverage as it’s HAPPY HOUR!

You are welcome to join in 30 minutes before we start to connect with the group and test Zoom’s capabilities. (We will be there playing around with our virtual backgrounds.)

See you on Wednesday (or Thursday for our friends in Europe, Africa, Asia, and Down Under)!
