Passive House Regions with Renewable Energies

Passive House Regions with Renewable Energies

Project duration

2012 -2015 (36 months)


This project is thus based on European regions/municipalities that either are already PassREg regions or are striving to become such regions. Through this project, the front runner regions that have already implemented successful, cost effective strategies will be optimized and made visible. Based on the lessons learnt within the project, useful parts of their models, the mechanisms in place promoting and supporting the implementation of PassREg concepts, will be adapted and implemented in the aspiring regions, less advanced partner regions that are striving to become front runners. Beacon projects, real construction and refurbishment projects built in accordance with Passive House and supplied by renewable energy where sensible, will round out the project, providing concrete case studies that will shed light on how each model promotes progress. Along with other best practice examples, the experiences from these front runner regions, or PassREgs, will help pave the way for other EU regions to achieve the Energy performance in buildings directive targets by 2020.

Project objective

This project aims to trigger the successful implementation of Net Zero Energy Buildings throughout the EU, using Passive House supplied as much as possible by renewable energies as the foundation.
