2021 New Gravity – Accelerated Edition

Hello, Passive House community! The 5th annual New Gravity housing conference: 2021 New Gravity, Accelerated Edition. This year, Green Building United has partnered with the Accelerator to bring our “fast, fun, and factual” approach to the online discussion of policies and practices that support high-performance affordable housing. The agenda includes four virtual interactive sessions ranging from technical insight on projects to broader market transformation discussions running July 21-22 from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm ET both days. The virtual platform will allow people from across the globe to join in!

The event’s keynote speaker Dr. Kwesi Daniels, Head of Architecture at Tuskegee University, has a range of experience in affordable housing, historic preservation, architecture, sustainability management, and urban geography. He previously served as the Green Homes Coordinator for the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency. Within this capacity, he managed the “greening” of over 43 multifamily buildings consisting of over 4,000 affordable housing units throughout the state. This work consisted of implementing renewable energy programs, energy efficiency retrofits, energy benchmarking, and green finance products, which developers could use to improve the sustainable performance of the properties. His experiences there provided the foundation upon which he does his current work. Stay tuned for updates on additional sessions.

Attendance is Pay What You Wish (sliding scale fee). CEUs TBA.
