Join the Building Energy Exchange ( (BEEX) for this discussion of two major Passive House events in Europe; the International Passive House conference ( in Leipzig and a carefully planned fact finding mission to Brussels, where Passive House is now mandated by law.

Passive House is having a breakout year in New York City. The high-comfort, low-energy building standard was featured prominently in De Blasio’s climate action plan, One City: Built to Last (, and interest is growing across the sector, in both public and private circles. Several events stand out in the Passive House calendar this season. In April, the International Passive House Conference convened in Leipzig, Germany, with BEEX Managing Director, Yetsuh Frank, and New York Passive House President, Ken Levenson, on hand to connect with the creators of the Passive House standard and learn about their new standard for building retrofits, EnerPHit ( In a similar vein, a mid-May fact finding mission to Brussels has been organized to connect NYC professionals and policy makers with the stakeholders in Brussels responsible for mandating Passive House certification for all buildings. And here in NYC, New York Passive House ( is holding their highly anticipated 2015 conference ( in June 11th.

June 2nd event will include reflections on the trips to Leipzig and Brussels from folks that took part in them, as well as a short primer on the upcoming NYPH 2015 ( conference on June 11th.
