phME Fall Forum 2017: Evening Panel Discussion:  Innovation in Sustainable Construction + District Retrofits, Nov 2, Maine
Event Description

EVENING Panel Discussion
Innovation in Passive House, Net Zero and Near Net Zero Construction

phME is proud to present two events as part of the Fall Forum. The goal is to reconsider possibilities in retrofits.

Maine's 600,000 existing units desperately need attention as we transition away from fossil fuels and anticipate extreme weather events. Innovation: what's missing in the demand and the solutions now offered? What messaging needs to be done? Is new technology being met with appropriate funding? Are new systems fully understood? Cost impacts demand; what can we do to reduce costs?

The Evening Panel Discussion will grapple with these questions. Moderator, Sonia Barrantes, will help shape the conversation and with luck we will have greater insight and potential steps forward to meet one of the greatest challanges Maine is currently facing: providing adequate and appropriate housing to our population.
