Energy efficiency technologies and materials

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

The International Passive House Association Blog is filled with entries related to highly energy efficient buildings. Topics include summer comfort, the first Passive House hospital, energy efficient high rises, integrating renewable energy sources into highly energy efficient buildings and much more! We encourage you to get involved by providing us with your feedback, content suggestions or simply joining the discussion and commenting on our posts.
