National manufacturer Crystal Window and Door Systems announced Wednesday that it recently became a member of the New York Passive House (NYPH) organization, a non-profit founded in 2010 by professionals in the design community to promote the Passive House Standard for building energy efficiency.

The Passive House Standard is a voluntary design and construction standard to achieve ultra-high energy efficiency in buildings.

Crystal is also listed with Passive House Accelerator (PHA), an online information-sharing platform that aggregates Passive House content from other websites. The website also encourages contributed content for projects, manufacturers, codes, and construction technologies from members across the design, construction, and building products community.

“Joining New York Passive House is part of our commitment to a greener built environment and helps us spread the word about the Passive House Standard and the Passive House Accelerator forum,” said Steven Yu, Crystal’s marketing manager.

NYPH members include architects, general contractors, engineers, energy consultants, universities and manufacturers that support the Passive House Standard.
