Peter Busby to Keynote Building Carbon Zero in Palo Alto
Passive House California announced that their 2015 conference will feature leading sustainability expert, Peter Busby, Principal at Perkins+Will Architects in San Francisco. Peter will share insights on the significance of building performance as a key metric for both carbon reduction and sustainability, using examples designed and monitored by his firm over the past 10 years. His keynote presentation will be followed by a group of Palo Alto building owners, who will share stories about why they chose Passive House and how that choice has affected them, their families and their relationship to the built environment. These projects range from custom homes, to an office, to a multi-use building that serves as office and residence for a Palo Alto-based non-profit organization.
Afternoon breakout sessions will focus on two tracks: Carbon, Efficiency and PV, Retrofits and Large Passive House. Projects to be presented range from a foam-free building in Colorado to the Jess Jackson Sustainable Winery Building in Davis, CA.
Building Carbon Zero Palo Alto will take place on Friday, November 13 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Lucie Stern Community Center, Palo Alto.
