PHN Presents: Scaling Up All-Electric Buildings
February 8 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EST
A central tenant in the climate fight is that all buildings will go all-electric. Yet for a number of reasons, thus far, all-electric big buildings have been elusive. However, today a new crop of Passive House big buildings are set to deliver on the goal of being fossil fuel free. Leading Passive House consultants Lois Arena and Dylan Martello will present two new large scale residential developments and a commercial Passive House retrofit, providing insight on the strategies, systems, and processes that make the leap to all-electric buildings possible – the lessons being learned and the work to still be done – as teams ready to make the future a reality, today.
