White House announces Passive House initiative in New York State

New York State Homes and Community Renewal (HCR) has established a new, optional Passive House track for applicants seeking competitive points for Green Building under its August 2015 Request for Proposals for Unified Funding Programs (RFP) to encourage a significant increase in the energy efficiency of New York’s affordable housing stock.  This RFP makes funding available through eleven state housing programs.  To obtain the competitive points under this track, projects may qualify under either the Passive House Institute US (PHIUS), or the International Passive House Institute (iPHI) programs.  HCR intends to work closely with NYSERDA to monitor the ongoing energy use intensity of any Passive House projects that may be selected for funding under the RFP, in order to provide valuable data to the market to accelerate the trend toward construction of Passive House certified affordable multifamily buildings.

The North American Passive House Network (NAPHN) Launches a Passive House Window Certification Workshop Series

Madison, WI (PRWEB) August 10, 2015

When the first Passive House was built in Darmstadt, Germany, there was not a single window on the market that met the stringent Passive House performance requirements. Fast-forward to today, and the situation is vastly different: a robust European market with over 200 certified Passive House window products.

I feel lucky to be a part of this movement, from Brooklyn to Leipzig.
 
The Amaricans are part of the global Passive House family - a very welcome part! It's a growing family - passive house is a general concept, working everywhere. And it has a lot of roots - one in Canada, thanks to Harold Orr (6th from the left in the foto)

The policy of New York State and New York City to achieve 80% carbon reductions by 2050 is critical to ensure our long term prosperity.   As we know, building operational energy use is a very large component of our current carbon emissions, and dramatically reducing our building energy usage with available tools such as Passive House construction is essential to achieving success. Led by the Passive House Institute, Passive House has been developed for over 25 years and represents a collective and global effort that continues its progress today here in New York and across the U.S.

Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council’s proposal that all new buildings in the county must be passive houses or nearly zero energy buildings (NZEBs) is currently out to public consultation till 11 May. But what is this proposal all about, and what are the implications?
