Peo­ple, Po­li­cy and Pro­jects: the upt­a­ke of Pas­si­ve Hou­se in Bri­tish Co­lum­bia

This present­a­tion re­views the key drivers be­hind the up­take of the Pass­ive House stand­ard in Brit­ish Columbia over 10 years; from one pro­ject in 2010 us­ing im­por­ted ex­pert­ise and ma­ter­i­als to a pro­lif­er­a­tion of trained per­son­nel, en­abling policies and pro­jects at dif­fer­ent scales and types in 2020.

The trans­for­ma­ti­on of a de­sign prac­ti­ce and a ci­ty

After the suc­cess of the 1st Pass­ive House in Van­couver, this ar­chi­tec­tur­al firm ex­per­i­en­ced an in­crease in pro­jects from code-stand­ard build­ings to only PH Cer­ti­fied with­in 3 years. This growth oc­curred due to pub­lic ex­pos­ure to PH and policy change in the Cit­ies de­vel­op­ment reg­u­la­tions.

Figh­ting off en­er­gy po­ver­ty: can Pas­si­ve Hou­se be the ans­wer?

Deep en­ergy ret­ro­fit­ting (DER) has nu­mer­ous pos­it­ive ef­fects, one of which is en­ergy poverty mit­ig­a­tion. In the poorest EU coun­try - Bul­garia, DER has the po­ten­tial to lead the ma­jor­ity of the af­fec­ted house­holds out of poverty risk, if suit­able policy meas­ures at loc­al level are ap­plied.
