Persuasive Conversations on Designing High Performance Homes

December 4

James Geppner, Executive Director of, presents the enormous differences between promoting a conventional house and selling one that's high performance. Architects and builders need a different process.  In this workshop we’ll show you the best way to approach these meetings and give you an evidence-based process that will increase the number of clients who want a passive house or zero energy house.



For events we organize or sponsor, we will set up a GroupCarpool to help our sustainability-loving community save gas and curb greenhouse gas emissions.  It's a simple interface that does not require setting up an account.

We encourage you to use this tool in your daily life as well.
