This new residential complex in Tirol, completed in 2018, is a passive house construction with 20 condominiums, 19 underground parking spaces and 8 carport spaces. The structure is U-shaped and is divided, due to the slope, in a basement with underground parking, a ground floor and 4 other above-ground floors.   The outstandingly low levels of energy demand and consequential CO2 emissions have made it achieve the Bronze status of the Austrian klimaaktiv criteria.

While most industries have been through fundamental changes over the past few decades, the construction industry has been hesitant to embrace digital innovation.   This does not mean that there is no innovation helpful for the sector. Building Information Modelling (BIM), the Internet of Things, 3D laser scanning and component printing, big data analytics, augmented reality, drones etc. are some examples of innovations, which could have a major impact on the construction sector.

ETIP PV is highly supportive of the EU’s interest in following a pathway that leads to a max -1.5°C warmer world and encourages it to put in place the policies that will achieve this as cost-effectively as possible. This means acting soon because zero net-carbon emissions are required by 2050.   The EU targets will be achieved with a fully decarbonised and expanded power sector that provides services in heating and cooling, transport and possibly chemical feedstocks.

The Passive House standard was defined and put into practice for the first time in Darmstadt in 1991 almost three decades ago. Next October 2019, the 23rd International Passive House Conference will take place for the first time outside Europe, in Gaobeidian, China. Before that, in May this year the passive-house pioneering city of Heidelberg hosted the Better Building!
