New York Passive House (NYPH) was founded in 2010 by a group of professionals who found the need for an energy-efficient built environment. What started as an unofficial meetup of like-minded professionals has developed into a strong non-profit with members of diverse professional backgrounds. Today, NYPH leads the movement to promote the Passive House building energy standard in New York State and the New York City metropolitan area.
Through public outreach, education, and advocacy, the team at NYPH works to promote the Passive House standard for a healthy, comfortable and energy-efficient built environment.
New York Passive House is a proud affiliate of the International Passive House Association (iPHA, Germany), and a founding member of the North American Passive House Network (NAPHN).
"We have an opportunity to increase overall demand for Passive House if we talk more about what the average person cares deeply about when looking for a home."
