18 th international passive house conference

Passive House is more…

…than energy efficiency. The Standard offers quality construction, unparalleled levels of comfort, superior air quality, lasting energy savings, user-friendly operation as well as increased structural longevity and integrity. Best of all, the Standard makes all these benefits affordable. A Passive House building's low energy consumption is also the very reason why the remaining demand, either entirely or to a large extent, can be covered by renewable energy alone.

Passive House is the future. This intelligent concept marks the cost optimum over the life-cycle of a building. In conjunction with the use of renewable energies, it stands as an answer to the nearly zero-energy building goals being established by governments the world over – indeed, according to the European building directive, it is to this standard that all new builds must be constructed by 2021.'
