We Heart Oakland

We are pleased to announce Scott Foster, Director of the Sustainable Energy Division for the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe and North America, will be the keynote speaker at our annual North American Passive House Network Conference. The announcement could not be more appropriate or timely as the U.S. withdraws from the Paris Climate Agreement. The conference, taking place this year from October 4-8 in Oakland, CA, is themed “Passive + Renewable,” and will focus on widespread adoption of Passive House building strategies and bring together others who are continually committed to a post carbon all-renewable energy future.
