Details :

Passivhaus buildings provide a high level of occupant comfort while using very little energy for heating and cooling. They are built with meticulous attention to detail and rigorous design and construction according to principles developed by the Passivhaus Institute in Germany, and can be certified through an exacting quality assurance process.

Over 30,000 Passivhaus buildings have been built in Europe and interest in Passivhaus is growing in the UK, with at least 70 projects either certified or in progress.

The Conference

The conference exists to spread learning between all those who are interested in the field of low energy building design in the UK. It will include case studies, site visits, workshops, debate, an exhibition of Passivhaus products and numerous networking opportunities.

The 2011 two day UK Passivhaus Conference offers a comprehensive review of the uptake of Passivhaus in the UK covering the standard, its suitability in the UK, leading edge case studies and practical delivery of the first Passivhaus projects in the UK. The conference will focus on themes such retrofit, local economic added-value, residential and non-residential buildings and occupant comfort/measured performance.

The first day will examine policy, regulations and projects, including talks from leading national and international speakers. The second day will focus on technical workshops and seminars covering costs, procurement, design, supply chain and other important issues.

On the first evening there will be a drinks and networking session and a conference dinner in the conservatory terrace of the Barbican (to be booked separately as per above link).

The UK Passivhaus Conference 2011 is being organised by the Passivhaus Trust and the BRE, together with their supporting partners and affiliates.

The conference will:

  • Help people procure and produce buildings that are at the same time beautiful and rigorously designed; achieving low energy consumption in use, and comfortable and healthy for occupants.  
  • Help stimulate interest in developing high quality, low carbon manufacturing in the UK that will reduce the need for imports, so creating new local, low carbon jobs.  
  • Assist in reducing the UK's demand on scarce resources; thereby contributing to creating a more equitable world.
