About Us

NYPH is growing rapidly! New York Passive House (NYPH) is a local non-profit dedicated to promoting the international Passive House standard.  Passive House is a building standard which results in a 90% reduction in building energy demand for heating and cooling. Since buildings make up a third of the world's energy consumption, focusing on improving our buildings can have a significant effect on our global energy demand. This is especially relevant in NYC, where buildings contribute to 71% of the city's carbon emissions and 94% of the city's energy consumption.

At NYPH, we manage a membership and sponsorship network of professionals and enthusiasts from all around the energy efficiency and building/real estate/architecture/construction fields.  We host and promote various events and trainings, manage a blog, website, and newsletter, and continue to outreach, educate, and build awareness about the International Passive House standard.
