Efficiency NOW! These projects make a difference
The time is NOW! to integrate the highest levels of energy efficiency into our retrofitting and new build projects. More extreme weather events and the looming energy crisis in Europe make this exceedingly clear. Buildings constructed to the Passive House standard are exemplary regarding energy efficiency and go far beyond legal requirements. We want to present these projects that help achieve a very low fossil energy consumption and relieve our power grids in the process.
Do-it-yourself energy efficiency
Europe is currently facing a possible energy crisis in the winter. Many homeowners and renters alike would like to prepare themselves for an impending energy shortage and the associated spike in energy prices by drastically reducing the energy they consume. As a result, many wish to modernise their houses and apartments. Since experts and tradespeople are currently difficult to find, the question is what we can do by ourselves. That is where the "Do-it-yourself" project of the Passive House Institute comes into play. In this project, step-by-step manuals for easy-to-implement energy efficiency measures and successful example projects offer guidance on how to reduce one's own energy demand quickly.
