First Passive House projects in Greece and Turkey now certified

Building standard provides maximum efficiency also in the Mediterranean climate

A complex of terraced houses and an environmental education centre are the first buildings to fulfil the criteria of the Passive House Standard in these two Mediterranean countries. The specific challenges for energy efficient construction in regions with a warm climate will be presented based on these and other projects at the International Passive House Conference 2016.

New Passive House office building in Frankfurt now certified

Visits to take place around the International Passive House Conference 2016

New Passive House building in Frankfurt Frankfurt. Curved façades, but a straightforward energy concept: a new office building in Frankfurt, Germany, clearly shows the potential of sustainable building design, with an architectural style that is not only elegant but also intelligent. The result is a 90 percent reduced heating demand and perceptibly increased comfort due to high indoor air quality. The building thus meets with the criteria for the Passive House Standard. Details of the energy efficient solutions for the building services and building envelope will be discussed in April during excursions as part of the International Passive House Conference 2016.
