The “Passivhaus” standard strives to achieve energy efficiency for all types of buildings.
The standard was developed in 1990 in Germany based on results obtained from research projects performed in Nordic climates found in Europe and in North America. A building built in line with the standard can achieve 80% heating and cooling energy savings. Since its inception, more than 50,000 buildings around the world have been built following the standard in varying climate zones.
Introducing itself in an era where optimised reduction of resource consumption is crucial, the “Passivhaus” standard is a tangible answer to the fight against climate change.
