21st International Passive House Conference 2017

The International Passive House Conference 2017 with its theme “Passive House for all” will take place on 28-29 April 2017 at the Messe Wien Congress Center in Vienna, Austria. The event provides a forum for presenting examples and ideas relating to this theme.



Passive House buildings are now possible for all stages of life: from kindergartens, schools and universities to retirement homes. Energy efficient Passive House buildings impress with their comfort and consistently low energy demand. In addition, Passive House buildings are feasible with all construction methods, with all kinds of energy supply systems and for all budgets. The Passive House Standard can be achieved for new constructions as well as for retrofits. Moreover, from a global energy efficiency perspective, the fact that Passive House buildings work well in all climate zones, including arctic and tropical climates, is very important.


The International Passive House Conference is the year's premium Passive House event, where about 1,000 thought leaders and innovators from around the world gather. Here, attendees will find a wide range of networking opportunities, presentations, workshops and excursions, which will allow them to share their experience with other professionals and to learn more about the latest Passive House developments. Furthermore, the conference is accompanied by the Passive House exhibition, where all leading manufacturers present their latest products.


During the conference, Vienna itself will also demonstrate its pioneering role in construction to the Passive House Standard. Numerous workshops with Passive House experts and excursions to completed Passive House buildings in Vienna and the surrounding area will round off the extensive conference programme.
