Passivhaus Design Principles


  • When? 12 March 2020 , 09:00 - 16:00
  • Where? ECMS, University of Wolverhampton Springfield Campus, Cambridge Street, Wolverhampton, WV10 0JR

Passivhaus is a voluntary standard for achieving low energy buildings, far exceeding the requirements of current Building Regulations. A Passivhaus building provides a high level of occupant comfort whilst using very little energy for heating and cooling, therefore reducing the building ecological footprint. Understanding energy balancing is the key for designing a Passivhaus building, as there are many ways to meet the Passivhaus criteria.

Learning Outcomes

After completing this course, you will:

  • Be familiar with the Passivhaus standard, including the assessment and certification process
  • Understand the building physics for effective design of low-carbon buildings
  • Be familiar with the key elements of Passivhaus design principles
  • Understand the practicalities and challenges of building to Passivhaus standards
