PhiusCon 2023: Building Resilience and Reliability in Hot & Humid Climates. Let’s Get Closer to Grid Security.

November 7, 2023 - November 10, 2023

This November 7–10, PhiusCon, the leading passive building conference for climate-conscious resilient and reliable home and building design, is coming to Houston for its 17th year. The conference brings together architecture, building, manufacturing, and energy experts and enthusiasts to address the need for weather-resilient homes.

Hosted by Phius, a nonprofit organization delivering the new industry standard for zero-energy building, the conference is paving the way for members of the building sector to create more energy-friendly communities. Attendees will discuss and learn new ways to build better, more adaptable and resilient buildings for their community as well as:

Hearing from closing Keynote Speaker Joseph Lstiburek, founding principal of Building Science Corporation and ASHRAE Fellow

Viewing demonstrations of affordable, sustainable building techniques, technologies, materials and projects

Celebrating ingenuity in building, construction, energy, engineering and housing industries

Learning how to build more efficient comfortable, healthy, safe and cost-efficient buildings that mean less stress on the grid and fewer outages through Phius Certification

Voting in the Ninth Annual Phius Design Competition displaying the most innovative, high-performance Phius-certified projects

The event welcomes everyone interested in learning how resilient and reliable buildings and homes are a path to mitigating and adapting to the effects of climate change

This year’s conference will highlight the importance of passive building as the solution for grid security and the built environment facing extreme weather issues. An emphasis on more efficient buildings will mean fewer outages in climate-sensitive areas, like Texas, and equip facilities with the standards necessary to withstand varying weather conditions.

In addition to information sessions, this year’s conference includes an expansive exhibit hall featuring high-performance building manufacturers, a tour of local Texas passive projects, the Phius Passive Projects Design Competition awards ceremony, and the PhiusCon After Party networking event.
