The Passive House Approach to Zero Net Energy Homes (PG&E)

Event Date and Time: 
Thu, 11/01/2012 - 9:00am


The State of California has set a goal for all new homes to be zero net energy by 2020. The Passive House standard, with its emphasis on optimized building enclosures, is a viable, cost-effective and field-verified means of reaching this goal. This class will introduce the Passive House standard and demonstrate its applicability to zero net energy homes, drawing on experience with actual projects in California, the US and Europe.
