Michael is active in the Passive House community, speaking at many national and international conferences including Passive House Institute’s 25th anniversary of Passive House in Darmstadt, Germany. Michael and the team at Baxt Ingui have extended their collaborative efforts by opening their homes during construction to teach students, architects, tradespeople, homeowners, and developers to integrate better building techniques.
This level of involvement in the early stages of the US Passive House movement has allowed for a clear vision of both the hurdles and the resulting opportunities associated with this emerging market. This has led Michaelto advocate with officials and building professionals in New York City and other cities. This early involvement has also led Michael to create Passive House Accelerator and co-found Fentrend.com, and FenIQ.
