outPHit announced as finalist in European Sustainable Energy Awards


    outPHit has just been confirmed as one of three finalists shortlisted for the 2024 European Sustainable Energy (EUSEW) Awards in the Innovation category. Through the project, 25 case studies across five European countries are demonstrating how high performance, deep retrofits to the EnerPHit standard can be made faster and more cost-effective.

Energy retrofits work. Really well.

"It's the existing buildings that matter!" From the start of the 27th International Passive House Conference in Innsbruck, the Passive House Institute emphasised the importance of highly energy-efficient renovations for climate protection. Diana Ürge-Vorsatz from the IPCC also called for renovations and new builds to focus exclusively on high energy efficiency. The international speakers presented success-ful projects and showed solutions for unusual challenges such as special climatic condi-tions or monument protection. The Passive House exhibition, evening events, workshops and four excursions rounded off the conference with the focus: "Retrofit. Have an impact."

Getting down to business!


Every building can be renovated to be energy-efficient, and every renovation step counts. This will be demonstrated at the 27th International Passive House Conference, which will begin immediately after Easter. Following its focal theme, "Retrofit. Have an impact", the conference will present the successful transformation of buildings with high energy consumption into climate-friendly structures with low energy costs and a high living comfort. There will also be excursions and workshops, including a free offer for municipalities. The trade exhibition with Passive House components is also open to the public on both days. Here is an overview of the highlights of the conference programme.

Does anyone offer higher savings?   


    After a deep retrofit, a typical apartment block from the post-war era has become a model for energy-efficient buildings. The Passive House Institute carried out scientific monitoring of the project in Giessen, Germany, and has now published its research report. The measured data shows that indeed, energy consumption for space heating already decreased by over 70 per cent in the first year after the renovation, and even decreased by over 80 per cent by the third year. Deep retrofits will also take the centre stage at the 27th International Passive House Conference in April.

Deep retrofit and everyone benefits


    Retrofits are the key to climate protection in the building sector. In order to support the uptake of retrofit solutions, the Passive House Institute’s 27th International Passive House Conference will take place with a focus on significantly improving the energy performance of existing buildings to the EnerPHit standard. The conference will take place from 5 to 7 April in Innsbruck, Austria and it also includes a Passive House specialists' exhibition. The conference programme is now online and the ticket shop is open. An early bird rate is available for anyone registering soon.
