Historic Fort Mason Center hosts the German American Chamber of Commerce's dasHAUS expo pavilion tour in San Francisco in February 2012. A showcase for German sustainability technologies, dasHAUS is open for guided tours, lectures and events. Highlights are the Grand Opening as well as a Green Building and Energy Efficiency Conference. This is your opportunity to see firsthand the latest developments in renewable energy and energy efficiency technology direct from Germany.
Das Haus is a traveling pavilion, a North American tour, and an ongoing international dialogue about advanced technologies for home construction and solar energy use. The purpose -- to share German innovations that have achieved sustainable construction and operational energy savings. Attendees represent leading organizations and businesses in building materials, architecture, engineering, renewable energy, and energy efficiency businesses, universities, and public officials.
From October 2011 to November 2012, the Das Haus pavilion tour, exhibition, and accompanying events travel throughout the US and Canada, making stops in 12 major cities. The goal of the tour is to share inspiration and engage sustainable building experts, associations, and key public officials across North America. After journeying across the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico following the completion of its South American tour, Das Haus has finally touched down in the US. A brand new solar controls system, parts just in from Germany and a fresh coat of paint mean the pavilion is ready for its close-up.
dasHAUS is about the future of sustainable building and the resources and the integration needed to reach that future. Join the dialogue. Stay tuned as further details are announced in the coming weeks!
