+++ Conference Countdown +++ Part 3: Energy efficiency is too expensive? No way!

Aug. 3, 2021

According to Axel Bretzke from Hochschule Biberach, the statistics have been showing a clear trend for years: energy-efficient building has specifically lower construction costs than building to the legal standard. Bull’s eye! Find out the reasons why, on Saturday, September 11, 2021 in Axel Bretzke's contribution to Session 5 at the 25th International Passive House Conference


En­ergy ef­fi­ciency is too ex­pens­ive? No way!  

In this lec­ture, a fre­quently men­tioned pre­ju­dice will be thor­oughly cleared up: En­ergy-ef­fi­cient build­ing is too ex­pens­ive! Not at all!

Axel Bret­zke from Bib­er­ach Uni­versity of Ap­plied Sci­en­ces shows that pro­ject par­ti­cipants who settle for lower build­ing ef­fi­ciency not only harm cli­mate pro­tec­tion, but also do them­selves no fa­vors! Ac­cord­ing to Bret­zke, the stat­ist­ics have been show­ing a clear trend for years: en­ergy-ef­fi­cient build­ing has spe­cif­ic­ally lower con­struc­tion costs than build­ing to the leg­al stand­ard. Bull’s eye!
Price driver is not the en­ergy stand­ard of a build­ing, but those are the costs for the land, the build­ing design, the equip­ment, the ac­cess­ib­il­ity, park­ing spaces etc. 
On Sat­urday, Septem­ber 11, 2021 Axel Bret­zke con­trib­utes in ses­sion 5 "En­ergy con­sult­ing in Ger­many" of the 25th In­ter­na­tion­al Pass­ive House Con­fer­en­ce.
