We are delighted to announce our presentation of our work to our North American colleagues at conference in New York this June.


The Third Annual North American Passive House Network Conference & Expo will be held June 13th and 14th, 2016, in New York City: Featuring state-of-the-art building strategies, components and professional development necessary for us to decarbonize by 2050, the #1 public policy goal of our time.

The conference will take place at the Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street, New York, NY.


The scientific consensus is clear – we must decarbonize by 2050 to prevent the worst effects of climate change.  And Passive House is one of our most powerful tools to achieve it.

Conference sessions will feature the latest Passive House developments, including:

  • Urban, high density and high-rise buildings
  • Low-rise and rural approaches
  • Buildings from the arctic to the tropics
  • Expert scientists from the Passive House Institute
  • Policymakers with growing expertise in implementing Passive House programs
  • Multi-family housing, both affordable and market rate
  • Integration of renewable energy
  • Steel and concrete construction, wood frame construction and cross-laminated timber (CLT) construction
  • The processes, details and results
  • Expert speakers from around the world including, Europe, the Americas and Asia

New York City is leading by example. Mayor Bill de Blasio has issued a call to action in his policy report One City: Built to Last and  stated at the groundbreaking of Cornell Tech’s new residential tower: “Passive House makes sense as a phrase, but I think it is an activist notion – a transformative notion…This is one example of how New York City can show the world a model that works in today’s reality.”

Building on the success of the NAPHN14 conference in Portland, Maine and the NAPHN15 conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, New York welcomes you to join those working to decarbonize our economy today at NAPHN16.
