German American Smart Buildings Symposium 2012 in Philadelphia, PA
Don't miss this opportunity to meet the key players in both the German and the Philadelphia efficient building industries!
Efficiency is often described as the cheapest source of energy we have. This is certainly true for buildings, which consume over 40 % of energy produced in the US. But using efficient appliances and turning lights and air conditioners off when they're not needed will not bring down our demand enough to significantly reduce our demand overall. So what new and innovative strategies are being tested and implemented?
The German American Smart Buildings Symposium will introduce you to expert speakers who will address these questions and more.
We are especially pleased to announce the participation of the Passive House Alliance. Michael Hindle became one of only 230 Certified Passive House Consultants in the country in 2010. He is the Principal of Chesapeake Passive House and Founder and President of the Capitol Passive House Alliance. Michael has worked to advance sustainability through his positions at the Baltimore City's Sustainability Commission Water Working Group and Baltimore County's Sustainability Network Building and Energy Focus Group. He has given numerous presentations on efficient buildings and has advocated for energy efficiency and climate change legislation on the state, local, and federal levels.
You will also meet representatives of innovative German efficient building companies, including GEEBS, INTEP GmbH, RAICO GmbH, BAERO, BATIMET GmbH, and WILO SE.
