Each year the PHIUS North American Passive House Conference brings together leading national and international passive builders, policy makers, energy consultants, architects, academics, energy media members and consumers for the largest passive building event on the continent.

From climate-specific case studies from builders and designers to big-picture vision from the likes of Amory Lovins and Joe Lstiburek, the PHIUS Conference always attracts lelading thought leaders and practioners.

We've received dozens of terrific abstract proposals for presentations -- THANK YOU!

The conference schedule and presentation roster for the 2013 North American Passive House Conference is under development. As in the recent past, you can expect an opening and closing plenary session, plus four content-rich breakout tracks over two days.
