Pre-Fab Passive House | Bill McDonald | TEDxDetroit

What if buildings could realize energy independence, resulting in 90% less energy household consumption, increasing the quality of life, indoor air quality, occupant comfort with one main difference? The entire build envelope is built off-site in a quality controlled semi-automated facility.

Powered by creativity, motivation and ambition, Bill grew up in a household of business owners both with inspiring stories on making a difference. Now he’s working helping buildings realize energy independence by building homes in a quality controlled semi-automated facility.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

About TEDx

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
