PHnw and the Pacific Northwest Passive House Community are proud to celebrate 10 years of hard work bringing Passive House buildings to our region! These efforts are more critical than ever before, and so we're excited to present our 10th Annual Conference!

Conference Highlights:

  • Keynote Speaker Carly Coulson will discuss Invisible Sustainability: A design approach that exceeds 2030 targets by using integrated passive design and advanced energy modeling to create amazingly rich aesthetic spaces that are seamlessly high-performing. 
  • Keynote Speaker Kathie Dello, the Associate Director of the Oregon Climate Change Research Institute and the Deputy Director of the Oregon Climate Service, will speak to how Climate Change is affecting our region. 
  • Keynote Speaker Astronaut Michael López-Alegría will speak at the Special Thursday Dinner Event. López Alegría held the record for the longest spaceflight at 215 days and he has spent more time spacewalking than any American.  Come find out the R-Value of the wall assembly on the International Space Station and get a perspective of our planet that very few people have ever had. 
  • Our 10th Anniversary Conference!  We will have a retrospective of the amazing work of Passive House Northwest and salute the founders and members of the organization that continue to strive for high-performance buildings in a climate of code minimum standards. 
  • Participate in the Policy Track of presentations and panels that will discuss the cutting edge changes municipalities are implementing to combat climate change in our region & beyond! These plans will help reshape code language by reaching for Zero Carbon & Zero Energy proposals that could radically change our built landscape.
