I periodically write articles on topics that I feel strongly about and sometimes they're featured in the media. Occasionally, I am invited to speak on these and other topics at industry conferences and workshops. Information on both of these appears here.
In the Media
The Boston Globe Magazine featured an interview with Paul Eldrenkamp. Paul shares his thoughts on where the green building movement is headed, the importance of accountability and keeping score, and preparing our homes for extreme weather.
Deep Energy Retrofits
Paul was interviewed by US Building Digest. He discusses low-energy construction and the challenges presented in low-energy retrofits (watch a video of part 1), and quality control in green building and measuring success (watch part 2).
DIY can save time, money but watch for hazards

Will the Weatherization Surge Work?
Paul spoke about green housing in an episode of WBUR's Radio Boston. Listen to the show, "Boston's Greenest Houses," at www.radioboston.org.
Paul is a founding partner of The DEAP Energy Group, a consulting partnership focusing on Passive House, zero-net energy, Thousand Home Challenge, and other high-efficiency building standards: www.deapgroup.com.
