Worldwide success of the Passive House
Press Release 9th June 2011
The 15th International Passive House Conference can rightly be called the world’s largest conference on energy-efficient construction as a result of its awesome agenda. Half of the 1200 Conference participants from 50 countries came from non-German-speaking countries.
The most comprehensive conference programme that has ever been presented at a Passive House Conference was offered this time. Over 80 international “Passive House Beginners” attended an English-language Passive House Basics Seminar on 25th May, which took place at the Faculty of Civil Engineering at the University of Innsbruck. On 26th and 29th May, a total of 9 Passive House Excursions were organised for about 450 participants, so that all the information gathered during the many presentations could also be actually experienced by them, in the true sense of the word.
This also included some special excursions, like the visit to Passive House public buildings that was organised for the local government representatives of the City of Oslo, and the visit to the world’s largest Passive House residential complexes, the Lodenareal and O3 Olympia Village in Innsbruck that was organised for a group of Korean conference participants and a Russian delegation, including members of the State Duma.
The 15th International Passive House Conference was organised by the Passive House Institute, the Province of Tyrol and the University of Innsbruck.
