How does a Passive House work? Which requirements exist with regard to components, planning, design, and project implementation? What resources exist to help with Passive House design? What is it like to live in a Passive House, what has already been built, and why are Passive Houses such an attractive investment? In order to competently answer such questions, the IPHA has created an informational brochure entitled, Active for more comfort: The Passive House.

International Project Brochures
One output of the EuroPHit project was the creation of an accessible informational brochure that highlights the successes of the EuroPHit project and case studies. The brochure draws on the lessons of demonstration projects implementing deep energy step-by-step retrofits in 11 EU Member States and aims to raise awareness and promote deep energy retrofits on the existing building stock.

An output of the PassREg project was the creation of an accesible informational brochure that informs of the successes of the PassREg regions and most importantly, provides strong examples of how municipalities can implement NZEBs through the use of Passive House and renewables. The brochure is ideal to be shared with local politicians and relevant municipal representatives in assisting in defining the Nearly Zero Energy Building and providing compelling measures that municipalities can implement for the building sector in achieving policy goals and regulations.
