Safe at Home: How all-electric, multi-family Passive House buildings deliver comfortable, cost-effective climate resilience, released by the Passive House Network, provides new cost analysis showing all-electric multi-family Passive House projects can be built at the same cost or close to the same cost as conventionally designed buildings.

“It’s never been more clear that America has two kinds of housing—in buildings that are prepared for climate change, and in buildings that are not,” noted Ken Levenson, Executive Director of the Passive House Network. “And now the data shows that we can build multi-family, all-electric housing that can help residents face the challenges of the 21st Century at the same cost or less than traditional buildings. This is how we build smart, and it should be standard building practice throughout America.”
