What we're about
The NY Passive House (http://nypassivehouse.org/) (NYPH) Meetups are organized by NYPH members (http://nypassivehouse.org/become-a-member/), working to promote a healthy, comfortable and energy-efficient built environment through the promotion of the Passive House building standard (http://www.passipedia.org/passipedia_en/basics).
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 (http://nypassivehouse.org/become-a-member/) include PH consultants, contractors, architects, engineers, home owners, energy conscious NY-ers and developers. By becoming a NYPH member (http://nypassivehouse.org/become-a-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.
The meetup members are people simply interested in finding out more about Passive House (http://www.passipedia.org/passipedia_en/basics) 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!
