Bronwyn Barry – The Passive House Network and Passive House BB
Passive House Podcast cohost Matthew Cutler-Welsh interviews Bronwyn Barry, principal of Passive House BB and longtime board member and leader at The Passive House Network. The two dive into Bronwyn's recent presentation to COP27 in Egypt about the mutually supportive role that the international Passive House standard and building energy code development can play. She shares an analogy of Passive House as high-speed rail and code development as the local train; both are important, both ultimately reach the same direction, and the advancement of one supports the other.  Passive House BB: https://www.passivehousebb.com/ The Passive House Network: https://naphnetwork.org/ Learn about the BuildingToCOP Coalition: https://globalabc.org/news/cop27-buildingtocop-coalition-keeps-focus-built-environment-critical-solutions-provider Bronwyn's previous appearances on the Passive House Podcast:  https://passivehouseaccelerator.com/podcast/passive-house-podcast-ep-8-bronwyn-barry https://passivehouseaccelerator.com/podcast/bonus-episode-bronwyn-barry-at-passive-house-for-all-interview-8 https://passivehouseaccelerator.com/podcast/bonus-episode-mikhail-haramati-and-bronwyn-barry-at-passive-house-for-all-interview-17 Bronwyn's previous appearances on Passive House Accelerator's live programming: https://passivehouseaccelerator.com/videos/how-to-transition-to-a-passive-house-practice-with-bronwyn-barry https://passivehouseaccelerator.com/videos/global-passive-house-happy-hour-bronwyn-berry-cycling-toward-industry-transformation Links to Passive House events coming up: https://passivehouseaccelerator.com/articles/passive-house-weekly-december-5th-2022  Thank you for listening to the Passive House Podcast!
