Pass­ive House Award

"2020 Pas­si­ve Hou­se Award" - POSPONED un­til 2021


The Pass­ive House Award is an In­ter­na­tion­al ar­chi­tec­tur­al com­pet­i­tion for highly en­ergy ef­fi­cient build­ings. Pro­jects can be sub­mit­ted via our on­line plat­form un­til 01 June 2020.
Build­ing Pass­ive means build­ing bet­ter! In the face of ad­van­cing cli­mate change, en­ergy ef­fi­cient build­ing is now im­port­ant than ever. The "2020 Pass­ive House Award" will show how the Pass­ive House stand­ard can be im­ple­men­ted in an ar­chi­tec­tur­ally soph­ist­ic­ated and ver­sat­ile way. The jury will pay par­tic­u­lar at­ten­tion to the in­teg­ra­tion of re­new­able en­ergy in the pro­jects.
The Pass­ive House In­sti­tu­te is the or­gan­iser of the 2020 Pass­ive House Award. An in­ter­na­tion­al jury will ex­am­ine the entries and judge them on cri­ter­ia such as design, cost-ef­fect­ive­ness, in­nov­a­tion, en­ergy sup­ply and sus­tain­ab­il­ity.

All in­form­a­tion about the cri­ter­ia, con­di­tions of par­ti­cip­a­tion or the on­line plat­form can be found on the Web­site of the Pass­ive House Award.
The win­ners will be presen­ted at an awards ce­re­mony as part of the In­terntion­al Pass­ive House Con­fer­en­ce.
