Our mission is to make the International Passive House standard adopted by industry, professionals, government, and homeowners through public outreach, education and advocacy for a healthy, comfortable and energy-efficient built environment.


New York Passive House (NYPH) was founded in 2010 by a group of professionals who found the need for an energy-efficient built environment. What started as an unofficial meetup of like-minded professionals has developed into a strong non-profit with members of diverse professional backgrounds. Today, NYPH leads the movement to promote the Passive House building energy standard in New York State and the New York City metropolitan area.
