Affiliate Literature - Passive House in Use

The performance of Passivhaus in new construction: Post occupancy evaluation of certified Passivhaus dwellings in the UK (Early Results)

The publication discusses the importance of reducing energy consumption in UK homes to meet emissions reduction targets. It highlights the performance gap in buildings, where energy use exceeds predicted values, posing a risk to homeowners, developers, and the government. Passivhaus Standard homes show promise in mitigating the performance gap, with measured energy performance closely aligning with predicted thermal performance. Overheating is also a concern in highly insulated and airtight homes, necessitating further research and systematic evaluation of energy use and overheating risks in Passivhaus homes.
