Our buildings have been a large part of the problem of climate change. Now there are energy smart homes that reduce operating costs and energy use by 80%. Net Zero and Passive House home designs can enable Guelph to become an energy leader and get us to 100% renewable energy by 2050.

Speakers Derek Satnik (Net Zero Homes) and Andrew Peel ( Passive House) will demonstrate how changing simple building practices can make homes more comfortable, healthier, economical and beneficial to the environment

Net Zero Homes

Net Zero Homes produce as much clean energy as they consume. They are up to 80% more energy efficient than typical new homes and use renewable energy systems to produce the remaining energy they need. Every part of the house works together to provide consistent temperatures throughout, prevent drafts, and filter indoor air to reduce dust and allergens. The result: exceptional energy performance and the ultimate in comfort – a home at the forefront of sustainability. It all adds up to a better living experience.

Passive House

Passive House (Passivhaus) buildings consume up to 90 percent less heating and cooling energy than conventional buildings. Applicable to almost any building type or design, the Passive House high-performance building standard is the only internationally recognized, proven, science-based energy standard in construction. Certification ensures that designers and consultants are expertly qualified to design buildings to meet the standard.
