Meet WUFI Passive (and PHIUS and PHAUS)–at Greenbuild

Hi all,

It’s me, Mike Knezovich (Mike #2) again, filling in for Kat.

Hey, here’s one thing you absolutely need to do if you’re going to Greenbuild:

WUFI Passive has a friendly user interface as well as powerful passive and hygrothermal modeling capabilities.

See a WUFI Passive demonstration at the Owens Corning exhibit–Booth 4247N, in the North exhibit building. Owens Corning–along with Fraunhofer IBP and PHIUS–helped develop WUFI Passive, the exciting new next-generation passive modeling tool. Here’s the scoop:

WUFI Passive Demonstrations at Greenbuild
Owens Corning exhibit, Booth 4247N
Wednesday and Thursday, November 13 and 14
11:30 a.m. each day
3:00 p.m. each day
Approximately 30 minutes each demonstration

If you’re a CPHC or you’ve taken the training or you’re a design or construciton  professional who’s just getting interested in passive principles, you owe it to yourself to get a look at WUFI Passive. 

WUFI Passive combines passive building energy modeling with WUFI’s famed hygrothermal analysis power. It offers the ability to switch between static energy balancing and dynamic modeling for a project. And it toggles seamlessly from metric to inch-pound units, with no cumbersome workarounds.

Florian Antretter, leader of Fraunhofer IBP’s development team, and Achilles Karagiosis–formally of Oak Ridge National Laboratory and now with Owens Corning, will be on hand. As will members of the PHIUS team.

OK, there’s one other thing you have to do at Greenbuild:

Meet PHIUS and Passive House Alliance US (PHAUS) at Booth T21. Mike Kernagis, Mark Miller (PHAUS Executive Director), Sam Hagerman (Chair of the PHAUS Board of Managers), Prudence Ferreira (PHIUS instructor for CPHC and WUFI Passive training) and Graham Wright (PHIUS Senior Scientist) will all be in and out of the booth. Stop by for the latest from PHAUS, the largest and fastest growing passive house membership group in the country, and from PHIUS–which is moving ahead with new trainings, including Builders Training and…WUFI Passive training in NYC, January 23-25, 2013!

Sorry, Kat won’t be there–she’ll be in Boston at ABX. Lots goin’ on!
