 The Passive House isn't just another eco-super-whatever label. It's a whole integrated concept for designing, constructing and maintaining buildings, which will provide high indoor air quality and best possible thermal comfort with only negligible annual costs. The amount of energy needed to keep the comfort high is regularly in the range of only one tenth (1/10 or 10% or 0.1) of what has been used in a comparable building in the past. This is one important reason, why the Passive House is sustainable: Such a building can be operated for hundreds of years without compromising the living costs for the occupants, but also without compromising any other person, born or yet to be born, on the planet. And: You can build and maintain a Passive House using local ressources; another reason, why it is sustainable. The Passive House isn't just another eco-super-whatever label.

 You do not believe this, it is so promising, that it can not be true? I am with you - this is the first message for my students in my university lectures: Do not just believe everything which is told to you - be sceptical, use your own mind. (But use it! Don't just stay with your prejudices.) If you want to scrutinise all issues related to the Passive House concept, this is the right place for you to do so. Here is just another video, giving a first short insight (8 minutes) into what has been accomplished sofar - because Passive House is not just pure theory, it's not a mere philosophy, it's tenthausends of already realized and well performing buildings and it is a bunch of components which have been tried and tested for decades.  You do not believe this, it is so promising, that it can not be true?
