Calling all architects, engineers, builders, high-performance component manufacturers, and policy makers to share the best of passive and zero energy building through case studies, best practices, lessons learned, and product knowledge.
Submission Deadline: May 28, 2021. Tarrytown, NY October 12-15
A New Beginning at PhiusCon with NYSERDA
This year’s PhiusCon (formerly known as PHIUS North American Passive House Conference), will have a distinct New York accent. In partnership with New York State Energy Research and Development (NYSERDA), the conference will be held in Tarrytown, New York, close to fantastic passive projects in New York City as well as the Hudson Valley.
NYSERDA is helping to make New York a leader in energy and carbon reduction. The agency has subsidized passive building training to strengthen the workforce, pushed for stringent codes, and incentivized high-performance building through efforts like it’s Buildings of Excellence program. We look forward to the agency’s participation.
Timing is Everything. Let’s all stay safe
Our goal is for PhiusCon to be an inclusive event that brings people together no matter if they are in-person or joining by live streaming. The most important thing is for us to engage, share and have fun.
