passivehouse, export

The passive house - an outdated concept or suitable for export?

The Passivhaus Institut (Passive House Institute) in Darmstadt estimates the number of passive houses built around the world to be 17,500, 13,000 of which are in Germany alone. In Germany and Austria, the passive house has progressed beyond its pioneering phase. Similarly rigorous energy standards have been tried out in Switzerland (Minergie-P) and northern Italy (KlimaHaus Gold) and there are many passive houses in Belgium, Scandinavia and the Czech Republic as well as initial projects in France, the UK, Ireland, Spain, South Africa and the US.
