+++ Conference Countdown +++ PART 6: Summer is great! Overheated buildings rather not!

Tuesday, 24 Aug. 2021

We alle love summer! And we love warmth. But overheated buildings? Very uncomfortable!

Awareness of cooling and climatization needs is on the rise in the northern hemisphere, too. Soraya Lopez will thus present the Passive House Institute's guidelines for summer comfort at the 25th International Passive House Conference.

We all love sum­mer! And warmth! But over­heated build­ings? Very un­com­fort­able!

In the north­ern hemi­sphere, too, there is an in­creased un­der­stand­ing that we will have to pre­pare bet­ter for sum­mer in the fu­ture. To pre­vent our houses from over­heat­ing des­pite more fre­quent hot sum­mer days, the Pass­ive House In­sti­tu­te worked out guidelines for sum­mer com­fort. And a stress test­ing for pro­ject plan­ning which is in­teg­rated in the plani­fic­a­tion tool PHPP. How con­veni­ent! 
Soraya Lopez from Pass­ive House In­sti­tu­te will present both guideline and stress test­ing at the 25th In­ter­na­tion­al Passivce House Con­fer­en­ce. Right on the first day, in ses­sion 4!
