The Passive House Path to Affordability

Passive House is the fastest growing near-zero energy performance standard in the world…and it’s driving a revolution in housing.

This practical session will look at both new housing developments and deep retrofits that follow the Passive House standard. Using real-world examples, our speakers will share their decision making, methodologies, and lessons learned to date. The session will feature projects at various stages of completion, including the rehabilitation of a 50-year-old 17-storey apartment tower, a Pre-Fabricated Insulated Panel Exterior retrofit of a 1961 townhouse block following the Energiesprong model, and several completed Passive House buildings with measurable savings.

You do not need to have any knowledge of Passive House or similar standards to attend this session.
