Welcome to the 20th International Passive House Conference!
The International Passive House Conference is the year's premium Passive House event, where about 1000 thought leaders and innovators from around the world gather. Here you will find a wide range of networking opportunities! Presentations, workshops and excursions allow you to share your experience with other professionals and to learn more about the latest Passive House developments. Furthermore, the conference is accompanied by the Passive House exhibition where manufacturers present their latest products! On Friday night the fair party is the place to be, don't miss it!
The Passive House is now 25 years old; to celebrate this, the International Passive House Conference is returning to Darmstadt – the city in Germany, in which this success story began. On 22 and 23 April 2016, over a hundred speakers from all over the world will report on the latest projects relating to highly energy efficient construction and retrofits. But the anniversary will also serve as an occasion for a review, with the presentation of results relating to the durability of the individual building components of the first Passive House.
The Conference Programme of the 20th International Passive House Conference is beginning to take shape: the Scientific Advisory Board has selected the best submissions from 220 entries. In an all-day session held in Darmstadt, the members of the expert committee examined in detail the abstracts on the latest studies and projects. An exact list of the planned presentations will be published in December. The Conference will take place on 22 - 23 April 2016.
Big anniversary for the International Passive House Conference: from 22 to 23 April 2016 this central event for energy efficient construction will take place for the twentieth time running. Experts from around the world can now submit their abstracts for the conference programme. A special focus of the event will be on cost-effective systems for home ventilation, but contributions on built projects and innovative concepts for new builds as well as for retrofits are also highly welcome.
Energy efficient construction has never been so easy – and this is due to the increasing availability of suitable components. The key focus at the International Passive House Conference 2015 in Leipzig was on the latest developments in this area. Experts from around the world presented the enormous savings potential of certified windows, insulation systems and ventilation systems among other things, and at the same time demonstrated their practical implementation. The lectures on 17 and 18 April demonstrated the importance of well-conceived and consistent action in the building sector for a successful transition to a sustainable energy future.
