NAPHN’s first eBook is here: Net Zero Energy Buildings, Passive House + Renewables
This book is intended to inform and inspire. Net Zero is a catch phrase with great emotional power, but too often prioritizes power production over demand reduction and effectively puts the cart before the horse, providing less than satisfactory results. This book demonstrates a better way. View our flipbook here.
The North American Passive House Network Conference & Expo (NAPHN16) program book – Passive House Accelerates is now available. The book provides an overview of the conference and the people, companies, and institutions making Passive House a reality today.
