The global Passive House platform
Passive House stands for healthy, comfortable living and impressive energy efficiency, regardless of the regional climate. Within the last several years, Passive House has gained rapidly in popularity, with over 50,000 residential and non-residential units in existence worldwide, and over 5,500 certified according to strict Passive House Institute certification criteria. These numbers are on the rise.
It is in everyone's interest that we safeguard the high quality associated with the Passive House Standard while fostering a greater public understanding of its significance internationally. The International Passive House Association (iPHA) was formed by the Passive House Institute in order to advance the Passive House Standard worldwide as well as the quality for which it stands.
