Passive House Potential for Commercial and Institutional Buildings

Large commercial and institutional building projects have tremendous opportunity to improve energy efficiency and to comply with Passive House (PH) requirements. What are PH advantages and disadvantages of these larger building types? We will review this and how certified PH projects may be easier to solve when a building has a larger volume vs.. one with a very small volume.

Mike Duclos is a principal and founder of The DEAP Energy Group, LLC, a consultancy providing a wide variety of Deep Energy Retrofit, Zero Net Energy and Passive House related consulting services. He is responsible for the design and certification of the second certified Passive House in Massachusetts, has multiple Passive House projects certified and currently in process, and has assisted with the design, and preparation of the PHPP for the first EnerPHIT certified home in the US.

For those who qualify, 1.5 LU/HSWs are available.
