Passive House Standards
The term Passive House refers to a rigorous and voluntary standard for energy efficiency in a building to reduce its ecological footprint. Adapting the Passive House Standards results in buildings that require little or no energy for cooling and heating the interior of that building. The term Passive House was developed in Germany, and the first Passive Houses were built in Darmstadt, Germany in 1990.
Passive design is not an attachment or supplement to architectural design, but a design process that is integrated with architectural design. Although it is mostly applied to new buildings, it has also been used for refurbishments. The Passivhaus Standard requires that the building fulfils strict requirements such as air and heat loss, energy consumption, insulation, ventilation.
