Passivhaus – 20 Years of Experience in Very Low Energy Buildings

Lessons learnt from construction and monitoring of Passive House Buildings

The first modern passive house was completed in 1990. Over the past twenty years a further 20,000 have been built across Europe, and extensive energy monitoring is being carried out on around 2,000 of these buildings. The results from this monitoring have proven that not only these buildings consume just one-tenth the energy of the average existing buildings of comparable dimensions but they also offer an improved indoor comfort and healthy indoor air quality. Besides those improvements, it has been shown that the construction costs can be limited to an affordable level.

Prof. Feist, the founder and director of the Passive House Institute in Darmstadt, will be presenting the experiences gained from projects and monitoring of passive house buildings over the last 20 years. He is the scientific head of the study group on cost efficient passive houses and of the European Thermie research project CEPHEUS . He received the National German Environmental Award and International Environmental Award of the City of Gothenborg.
