Persuasive Conversations on Designing High Performance Homes

December 4

Passive House and other high-performance buildings require a unique approach to explaining benefits to clients.  

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.

NZE Living in the Hudson Valley

December 6

For our western Connecticut audience:

Join NESEA for a tour of a two-family, NZE residential project in Cold Spring, NY located within walking distance of the Metro-North stop!

The hosting team from The Figure Ground Studio will detail the process for designing and building these two structures, including open floorplans with passive solar heating, compact and efficient design, a green roof, landscape integration, and accessible design. Because this project is striving for Living Building Petal certification, you'll also receive insight into the process of selecting materials with low toxicity and lower environmental impact at point of manufacture, point of use, and point of disposal.

More information here.


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.
