Passive house

A 60m² passive house is heatable with 16 tea lights

The above-mentioned astonishing data was notified at the conference „Energy-efficiency in buildings, passive house standard” last week.
The following writing with the titel „The passive house gives evidence permanently” gives further curiosities about the passive house topic.
Europe-wide 32 thousand passive houses have already proved that the energy-consumption and the carbon-dioxide emission is reducible by 80-95% in exchange for some minimal extra costs while ensuring the high level of comfort.
Nowadays there are 32 thousand passive houses in Europe with 13,9 million squaremeter of useful area. These save 175 million euros of energy-costs yearly and reduce the carbon-dioxide emission by 200 thousand tons. 800 of the building stand have been built by recovery, 17% of the total useful area is in public buildings. 46 thousand flats have been built Europe-wide by the technologically long sophisticated and thousand times approved technology. The oldest passive house in Darmstadt celebrates its 20th birthday this year – Sariri-Baffia Enikő – passive house qualifier and tutor and manager of the Energy Planer Team - gave the data before the 15th passive house conference which was held on the 27-28th May in Innsbruck.
The passive house is a real win-win strategy: beside the value creation the users and the investors win the low maintenance costs and the high comfort, the society wins the decreasing of the dependence on the energy-import. This is the key to success – declares Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Feist, docent at the Innsbruck University and leader of the work.team for energy efficient constructions.
The public buildings of 27 European regions have already been executed as passive houses, this applies to 25 million inhabitants. This also proves that this outstanding building-standard is successful all over the world – underlines Sariri-Baffia Enikő. The passive house standard already fulfills the „nearly zero energy building” requirement of the EU, which is going to be binding for all new buildings in the member states from 2021 according to the plans. And the remaining energy-demand can be covered without any difficulty by renewable energy-sources.
