Passivhaus and low energy building links

General Passivhaus and low energy building links :


http://www.passiv.de/– Passivhaus Insititut, Germany.  Use google translate (or similar) and view the page in German, the English pages are very restrictive! There is a wealth of information on this site but it’s very badly laid out so takes some hunting

www.AECB.net – The aecb forum is particularly good.  Additionally AECB members can download the gold and silver design guidance which has got lots of examples of ‘thermally coherent’ details.

http://passipedia.passiv.de/passipedia_en/ – A wiki style website written by the Passivhaus institut.

http://www.passivhaustrust.org.uk/ – UK based organisation aimed at brining all those interested in Passivhaus together.  If you are a member of this you are also automatically a member of iPHA (see below)

http://www.passivehouse-international.org/ – international Passivhaus association

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MacEsAgr8A&feature=related – Dr Wolfgang Feist interview

http://www.leedsmet.ac.uk/as/cebe/ Centre for the Built Environment, Leeds Met. Loads of great information on energy consumption in buildings
