SmartHome at the City Club

The City Club of Cleveland hosts a panel discussion on the future of passive home design featuring: Dr. Evalyn Gates, Executive Director of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, Mark Hoberecht, Certified Passive House Consultant and Chuck Miller, designer and architect, Doty & Miller Architects and moderated by Holly Harlan, former executive director, Entrepreneurs for Sustainability.

The Cleveland Museum of Natural History has been busy building a two-story "passive" house on its grounds in University Circle. The structure, dubbed, "PNC SmartHome Cleveland," complements the museum's exhibition on Climate Change, which will run from July 23 through Dec. 31. The SmartHome will be open for tours from June 6 through the end of September, 2011. 

SmartHome Cleveland demonstrates how we can live more energy-efficiently and is designed to conform to current best practices of energy performance -- being a passive home, it doesn't even have a furnace. Is CMNH's SmartHome a futuristic exercise or is it possible right now in the "real" world? And if it is practical how can Cleveland lead the way in passive home design construction?
