Showing of the film Passive House: A Building Revolution

A cinematic exploration of the most important development in building design, construction and retrofitting in a generation. In 20 years the Passive House model spread across Europe, and is now gaining popularity in Canada and the U.S. both for residential and commercial buildings. A passive house can reduce heating and cooling energy use by 80 percent. Lifecycle costs of these buildings are less than any other “green” construction method, and owners recapture their extra outlay relatively early in the life of the building. Discussion to follow. Suggested donations $5.
