International cooperations

The International Passive House Association (iPHA) and the Passive House Institute are currently involved in the dissemination projects PassREg and EuroPHit, co-funded by the European Union's Intelligent Energy Europe programme. The Passive House Institute is also an active partner in the FP7 funded 3EnCult project:

PassREg - Supporting the growth of Passive House regions towards an EU energy revolution

PassREg Brochure: Defining the Nearly Zero Energy Building

EuroPHit - Retrofitting for the energy revolution, one step at a time

With the EnerPHit Standard as the goal and Passive House principles as the basis, EuroPHit applies knowledge on deep energy retrofits to the oft-overlooked yet critical area of step-by-step refurbishments. EuroPHit aims to significantly increase the quality and energy efficiency of perhaps the most common type of refurbishment: retrofits conducted gradually, over a period of years.

The following Passipedia articles have been written within the framework of the EuroPHit project:

Example of incentive programmes for retrofits: the KfW in Germany

3EnCult - Efficient energy for EU cultural heritage

The project 3EnCult bridges the gap between conservation of historic buildings and climate protection, which is not an antagonism at all: historic buildings will only survive if maintained as living space. Energy efficient retrofit is useful for structural protection as well as for comfort reasons - comfort for users and “comfort” for heritage collections. 3EnCult will demonstrate the feasibility of “Factor 4” to “Factor 10” reduction in energy demand, depending on the case and the heritage value.


The following Passipedia articles have been written within the framework of the 3EnCult project:
