The 19th International Passive House Conference will place a special emphasis on high performance components. Such products are needed to facilitate the superior comfort, air quality, and sustainably low energy costs for which Passive Houses are known. They also support the exceptionally low energy consumption of Passive House buildings, which can easily and affordably be run on renewable energies towards zero and plus energy concepts. The products, just as the buildings in which they are used, must, of course, also be cost effective if Passive House is to really take hold in the near future. These as well as exemplary case studies and building projects from around the world will be central conference themes.
