From the United King­dom to Po­land to In­dia and Aus­tralia, the speak­ers in this ses­sion will share their ex­per­i­en­ce of Pass­ive House con­struc­tion pro­jects in dif­fer­ent coun­tries and cli­mates, and present loc­al spe­cif­ics that they had to con­sider when im­ple­ment­ing the pro­jects. Les­sons learned re­gard­ing the en­ergy de­mand as well as the in­di­vidu­al pro­ject size com­plete the them­at­ic of­fer.
