Efficiency: The First Renewable Energy #EfficiencyFirst

 

 

The International Passive House Association (iPHA) is a global network uniting both Passive House experts and enthusiasts alike. Together with its 22 Affiliate Organisations, iPHA works to promote the Passive House standard and foster a greater public understanding of its benefits and achievability. The network makes a wealth of information available and facilitates active exchange among professionals, policymakers and the public.

 

In 2021, the iPHA Network will be running the "Efficiency: The First Renewable Energy #EfficiencyFirst" campaign. Over the course of the year, iPHA, together with its affiliate organisations will be running a series of activities and events to promote the significance of an efficiency first approach.

 

Make your building work for you and live better using less energy in a comfortable, healthy, sustainable and future-oriented Passive House.

Meeting our goals for climate protection

 

The United Nations IPCC highlights the substantial action needed to limit global warming. Currently, 35% of global energy consumption comes from the building sector alone. The operational stage is the largest contributor to carbon emissions, with the majority of this stemming from heating and cooling demand.

 

Therefore, think #EfficiencyFirst! The Passive House standard (or EnerPHit for retrofits) provides a pathway to meeting our climate goal.
