What is Passivhaus? Or Passive House?
Buildings are a significant culprit of carbon emissions – accountable for 35% of total global energy consumption.
Backed with over 30 years of international evidence, Passivhaus is a tried & tested solution that gives us a range of proven approaches to deliver net-zero ready new and existing buildings optimised for a decarbonised grid and augmented for occupant health and wellbeing.
Passivhaus buildings provide a high level of occupant comfort using very little energy for heating and cooling.
Passivhaus adopts a whole-building approach with clear, measured targets, focused on high-quality construction, certified through an exacting quality assurance process. For more on why adopting an efficient first approach is crucial to meeting carbon targets.
EnerPHit is a slightly relaxed standard for retrofit projects, where the existing architecture and conservation issues mean that meeting the Passivhaus standard is not feasible.
