We are look­ing for your pro­jects, ex­per­i­en­ces, new de­vel­op­ments and much more to cre­ate an in­spir­ing pro­gramme for our 25th In­ter­na­tion­al Pass­ive House Con­fer­en­ce in Septem­ber 2021 in Wup­per­tal, Ger­many. Des­pite the un­usu­al situ­ation our world is in at the mo­ment, the build­ing sec­tor is boom­ing and many good pro­jects have been im­ple­men­ted or are in pro­gress.

The biggest task ahead is the ren­ov­a­tion of ex­ist­ing build­ings world­wide - show us your pro­jects!

You have the op­por­tun­ity to sub­mit your ab­stract on­line un­til 15 Feb­ru­ary 2021. Present your pro­jects, get in­spired by the ex­per­i­en­ces of oth­ers or find suit­able products for your build­ing pro­ject.

We look for­ward to see­ing you in Wup­per­tal!

Virtual Passive House Conference | A review

Nov. 11, 2020

We are incredible happy and thankful for three weeks of virtual Passive House Conference and for all the things we learned and shared. It was an ex­hil­ar­at­ing ex­per­i­en­ce to meet so many people virtually that are pas­sion­ate about build­ing en­ergy-ef­fi­cient houses and im­ple­ment­ing these build­ing stand­ar­ds for a bet­ter and more sus­tain­able fu­ture. Take a look at our review page or dicover our Social Media Wall to read more.
