Passivhaus is the world’s leading fabric first approach to low energy building. Mainstream in many European countries, it is fast becoming one of the most exciting approaches in building design in the UK – ensuring that buildings are both exceptionally low energy in use and much healthier for occupants. In addition EU targets require the energy consumption of buildings to be nearly zero by 2020. This conference brings together many of the leading UK experts in designing, delivering and commissioning Passivhaus buildings. The event will include a series of UK case studies and the opportunity to hear from inspiring speakers such as Jonathan Hines of Architype and Emma Osmundsen of Exeter City Council, who are pioneering this approach in both the public and private sector, non-domestic and housing industries.
