City pro­cess for en­sur­ing pro­jects tar­get and achieve pass­ive house cer­ti­fic­a­tion

Van­couver has made great pro­gress to 2 mil­li­on square feet of Pass­ive House in per­mit­ting or un­der con­struc­tion. This present­a­tion gives an over­view of pro­cesses Van­couver has gone through to en­cour­age Pass­ive House pro­jects. We will show oth­er cit­ies how they can lead with Pass­ive House fo­cused policy.

Pass­ive house city dis­trict Heidel­berg-Bahn­stadt - ex­per­i­en­ce and ev­al­u­ation

The City of Heidel­berg is com­mit­ted to am­bi­tious cli­mate pro­tec­tion and sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment. The new city dis­trict Bahn­stadt is de­ve­loped on the area of the former freight yard. With an area of 1.16 square kilo­met­er Bahn­stadt is the first quarter of this di­men­sion en­tirely built in pass­ive house stand­ard.

Im­ple­ment­a­tion of the pass­ive house stand­ard in so­cial hous­ing in Mex­ico, les­sons learned

The LAIF Com­pon­ent of the Eco­casa Pro­gram ran un­til 2018 in Mex­ico, with the aim of re­du­cing CO2 emis­sions in so­cial houses by 80% through the cost-ef­fi­cient im­ple­ment­a­tion of the Pass­ive House stand­ard. This pa­per in­cludes the main out­comes and the les­sons learned dur­ing im­ple­ment­a­tion.

Large-scale cer­ti­fied pass­ive house de­vel­op­ment in Qing­dao, China - de­mon­strat­ive res­id­en­tial pro­ject settles in Sino-Ger­man Eco­park

Pass­ive houses re­duce greatly the de­pend­en­ce on fossil fuel en­ergy while provid­ing high in­door com­fort. The in­nov­at­ive large-scale de­vel­op­ment of pass­ive house res­id­en­ces in the Eco­park Qing­dao can ab­ol­ish the dis­trict heat­ing and re­duce in­fra­struc­ture in­vest­ment, in this way the pass­ive house res­id­en­ces will save a lot of en­ergy and emit less CO2 and dust pol­lu­tion, con­trib­ut­ing to the en­vir­on­ment qual­ity.

Re­duc­tion of the heat­ing de­mand of build­ings by 50% un­til 2050

It’s pos­sible to re­duce the en­ergy de­mand to 50% of the whole build­ing sec­tor un­til 2050, if ac­tions are taken con­se­quent and im­me­di­ate, like a field ana­lys­is of two city areas shows. There­fore, the fo­cus must be put on the best avail­able build­ing stand­ar­ds, both for new build­ings and for re­fur­bish­ments.
