PhiusCon 2022: Emissions Down, Power Up!
PhiusCon, the leading passive building conference for climate-specific zero energy design, construction, and building science, returns to Chicago for its 16th year this October 25-28, 2022. Hosted by Pius (Passive House Institute the US), a non-profit organization delivering what is quickly becoming the de facto industry standard for high-performance zero-energy building. The conference brings together building science experts, manufacturers, and attendees who all seek to learn about and reduce the impact of buildings as a contributing factor to climate change by:
- Demonstrating affordable, sustainable building techniques, technologies, materials, and projects
- Celebrating ingenuity in building, construction, energy, engineering, and housing industries
- Educating professionals on how to build comfortable, healthy, safe, and cost-efficient buildings for a more resilient world
This year’s conference focuses on the “path to net zero,”
introducing new features such as a Bridge Track for those new to passive building and a slate of “Mini Keynote Addresses” from top thought leaders in the industry on topics such as using Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) towards carbon-neutral, cost-neutral high-rise affordable housing, retrofits in place, electrification of systems and passive building science, as well as a tour of notable Pius projects in Chicagoland (tour tickets sold separately). Phusion will also host its eighth annual Pius Design Competition, displaying the most innovative, high-performance Pius-certified projects.
Additionally, a large exhibit hall brimming with state-of-the-art technologies and systems from leading manufacturers in the high-performance building industry. Relevant passive and zero-energy buildings will be on-site for exploration and learning. Open during the show, the Exhibit Hall will also be open for a preview the night before the conference. Providing a unique opportunity for those interested in exploring more about Pius and the passive building. Attendees can also earn continuing education credit through AIA and Pius Professional CEUs.
