Learn more about Passive House

Our friends at Southeast Green recently interviewed Tom DiGiovanni of the Passive House Alliance. Passive House construction needs paints and plasters that are mineral based to work effectively. San Marco is the perfect fit for this kind of construction.

Passive House Alliance is working every day to increase the market share and acceptance of Certified Passive House buildings. We help people learn how to build better, we bring together people who are concerned about the global impact of pollution, the effects of rising energy costs, the lack of energy independence in the US and the fact that climate change is happening before our eyes. We are working with policy makers at all levels to write new laws that provide strong incentives for the Advanced Energy Efficiency delivered by Certified Passive House buildings. We are partnering with leading edge organizations that want to help the environment while creating green jobs right here in the US.

PHA is closely aligned with the Passive House Institute US (PHIUS), the national training and certification agency for Passive House professionals, projects and products.

PHA is currently headed up by Acting Executive Director Tom DiGiovanni, who brings more than 20 years of executive level experience in entrepreneurial and startup environments. Tom specializes in company growth strategies, development finance, affordable housing and sustainable buildings. www.phalliance.com
