Last night I attended the Wisconsin Women Entrepreneur’s networking dinner and found so many people interested to hear more about the Passive House Standard. So I thought I would share a 2008 article from the New York Times that provides a basic discussion on this German program. Awareness of these high performance buildings is key. I am working on community presentations to host around Madison. These seminars will help spread the work about how we can build and renovate smarter. For a more in depth look at the details of construction this NYT blog post provides a great graphic.
