Housing and Sustainability: A View from Two Continents

/ Webinar

Hosted By:
Urban Land Institute

Whether single-family or multi-family, residential buildings are significant users of energy, water and more: residential buildings account for more than 20% of U.S. energy use. While green building standards and energy efficiency measures have ramped up quickly in the commercial sector, less progress has been made at making housing more sustainable. But are market demand and technologies evolving on the residential side, and is Passivhaus one potential solution? Hear developers of Passivhaus and related housing projects in the U.S. and U.K. discuss market reaction, builder challenges, and opportunities for achieving scale. Registration is limited to ULI members only.
