Linden Hills Power & Light was kind enough to invite me to lecture on Passive House and Deep Energy Reduction Retrofit in August. Here is an excerpt from their program:

Aug 25 –We Love Retro

Join our architect specialist to learn the ins and outs of deeply retrofitting old homes. A Deep Energy Reduction Retrofit (DERR) project will cut 70% or more of the energy use of buildings. You’ll also learn about the Passive House building energy standard. Passive House represents today’s highest certified building energy standard, with the promise of reducing the total energy consumption of buildings by up to 90% while providing superior comfort and indoor environmental quality – all at little or no additional up front cost. When combined with renewable energy systems such as solar photovoltaic or solar thermal, Passive House puts true zero energy buildings and carbon neutrality within reach.

Here are the details:

Thanks for attending my GbD lecture/slideshow

Thanks for attending my lecture at the Green by Design conference. It was a fabulous event and many great ideas were shared. In the spirit of the conference I am offering my slideshow for review at slideshare: http://www.slideshare.net/timeian

Since most of my slideshows don’t have a lot of text or bullet points, you may want to look at the Living Green Expo slideshow, which was designed to run without my presentation and offers lots of frequently asked questions and answers.

Save the date: 4th PH Conference
