Hi all, Thanks for joining the Passive House Meetup! Some of you know a lot about Passive House and some of you know a little. We want to try to reach out to all different walks of life to spread the word about this great new (to us) system and how this can play a major part in slowing climate change. If anyone knows of a good place to get the word out, please do, so that we can have as many people at this first meeting as possible. We will have short presentations of 3 Passive House projects that are happening in NYC right now and a general overview of Passive House and its origins.
Also, if anyone has a video camera and would like to bring it along on December 1st to do an informal filming of the meeting to attach to this website, that would be great. It would allow those that are not there to see what went on. Post to the group if you do.
NYPH is an independent not-for-profit organization that facilitates the exchange of information and experiences, among local, national and international practitioners of the Passive House building standard.
Presentations at the Meetup will vary from broad general introductions to specific concerns of materials, systems and methods. We hope the NY Passive House Meetup will make a meaningful and concrete contribution to the understanding of Passive House in New York.
NYPH members include PH consultants, contractors, architects, engineers, home owners, energy conscious NY-ers and developers. By becoming a NYPH member, you support NYPH and get to go to all meetups for free and help us to create promote PH as a building standard in NYC. As well as get invited to attend Professional meetings, for more in depth Passive House topics
The meetup members are people simply interested in finding out more about Passive House and besides NYPH members include all people simply interested in PH and would like to get updates of when/where NYPH events are taking place. Meetup members do pay a small fee, which helps to defray the cost of organizing NYPH events (again NYPH members get in for free). So no matter your background, if you are interested in making more healthy, comfortable and energy efficient buildings, join today!
