next Passive House Conference will take place at Nuernberg 2008
April 11th and 12th. News about the 12th conference will be available
on this site in just a few weeks.
The terrific interest
in the 11th Conference on Passive Houeses shows the actuality of
the subject: see our news
from March 17th.
House Energy Standard is the leading standard for energy efficient
design and construction.
In Europe already more
than 6000 passive house units have been successfully built and completed.
Positive feedback from inhabitants has confirmed what had been projected:
not only energy costs can be reduced drastically, but also the comfort
of living increases significantly by using an energy efficient construction.
efficiency is the key to high thermal
comfort as well as very low energy costs. Excellent insulation,
high quality windows and heat recovery make it possible not only
to reduce the energy requirement just a little bit, but to substitute
the main part of the demand. Products suitable for passive houses
have been developed in Europe, can be produced locally and installed
by local handycrafts. And such products can be used in refurbishment
of existing buildings, too.
The International Passive
House Conference has been established to facilitate the exchange
of ideas, knowledge, and progress in the field of energy efficient
construction and sustainability.
As it has been the tradition
in previous years, the conference is being held every year in a
different region. For the year 2007 the Energy Institute Vorarlberg
and the Passive House Institute are pleased to invite you to join
us in Bregenz/Austria at the famous Lake Constance. The 11th Passive
House Conference will be held on the 13th and 14th of April 2007
in the Bregenz Festival Hall. As every year, we offer a field trip
to the most interesting Passive House projects and construction
sites in the region near Bregenz 15th of April 2007.
The newest developments
on highly energy efficient products and construction will be introduced
and presented during lectures and in a building technology fair.
The building technology fair of groundbreaking developments in the
sustainable materials and energy efficient systems sector will be
open to the public and will be held parallel and in addition to
the conference. Many exciting innovations are being presented every
year to a wide audience in an informative way.
