Passive House Retrofit Summit

Passive House Accelerator presents leaders of the boldest retrofit programs in North America on how to push the pace of retrofits and cut carbon emissions from existing buildings.
It’s 2021, and high time we talk retrofits. Building construction and operation generates nearly 40% of global greenhouse gas emissions.

Expect scintillating presentations and lively discussion!
