Event Description

Join the North American Passive House Network (NAPHN), the International Living Future Institute (ILFI), and the Building Energy Exchange (BE-Ex) for this Climate Week event on the role of urban, high-density, net-zero-energy projects in meeting the demands of our climate crisis.

Framed by ILFI’s recent work with Salesforce on net zero energy projects and the role of Passive House as a powerful demand reduction strategy, this discussion will illuminate the power of urban zero energy targets to meet both our long-term climate action goals as well as near term targets like New York City’s carbon emissions limits for buildings (LL 97). Featuring large-scale, real world projects, this event will squarely address the challenges we face by offering effective solutions that form a roadmap to equitable and sustainable communities.
