H2College - Hydrogen and passive house

Share this Post:

Herning Municipality is among the frontrunners in the hydrogen field. A recent project involved the construction of 66 youth accommodation units that receive electricity and heating from hydrogen and wind energy, making the units 100 per cent CO2 neutral. At the same time, insulation and heat recovery has reduced energy consumption by 98 per cent.

Lessons learnt

H2College proves that theories can be put into practice With H2College, Herning Municipality has shown that it is possible to utilise hydrogen technology and the passive building concept in practice – and achieve success. The project also proves that passive buildings can be constructed at prices to match those of regular housing – even without taking into account the additional economic gain to be made from the low energy consumption that is a feature of passive buildings.
