Peter Amerongen, Habitat Studios
Peter Amerongen of Habitat Studio has been designing and building houses for over 45 years. The path to becoming a respected expert in ultra energy efficient housing began with the 1970’s energy crisis. In 2006, he led the team that built Edmonton’s first net zero energy house. The Riverdale NetZero Project was the first building this far north in Canada to be so efficient that it can produce all of its annual energy needs from solar energy harvested on site. Habitat Studio has since built nine other net zero energy houses and more than 40 houses that with Energuide Ratings of 86 or better. Peter was on the team that built Edmonton’s net zero energy Mosaic Centre and is currently building Canada’s first net zero energy affordable multifamily housing.
Peter’s expertise in net zero energy building has led to over 80 public presentations in Alberta, across Canada and around North America. He is a Certified Passive House Consultant (PHI and PHIUS) and serves in leadership positions with the Net Zero Energy Coalition, the CHBA Net Zero Council and Passive Buildings Canada.
This advocacy work has allowed him to learn from the best North American and European experts in building science and building energy efficiency and from other leading builders.
