Please join us along with presenter Dylan Martello in this discussion of the Passive House standard in achieving Net Zero. Designing living environments for the future requires an all-inclusive approach. The Passive House standard requires designers to incorporate low energy passive design principles from the start to significantly reduce energy consumption. While the focus is reducing energy consumption, the intent of creating such efficient buildings is to also provide comfortable, healthy, and resilient places to live. The Passive House standard can also be a critical strategy to achieving zero net energy buildings
