Passive House in Different Climates. The Path to Net Zero
This book introduces the seven Passive House principles, to help create super-insulated, airtight buildings that require minimal energy use to heat, cool, dehumidify, and ventilate, providing good levels of indoor air quality and year-round comfort. Seventeen case studies in four climate zones---marine, cold and very cold, mixed-dry and hot-dry, and mixed-humid and hot-humid---and in ten countries, show how to achieve net-zero energy regardless of the building’s location or type.

Across Europe, town and city councils are becoming increasingly interested in energy decentralisation, i.e. in producing power closer to where it is consumed.
Those municipalities that have already experienced this say the model is one of the best ways of fighting pollution and reducing energy costs for citizens. Heidelberg is one such city in Germany, with its long-running energy company.
