About

The International Passive House Association (iPHA) is a global network of Passive House stakeholders including architects, planners, scientists, suppliers, manufacturers, contractors and property developers. It works to promote the Passive House Standard and foster a greater public understanding of its significance. Encouraging the exchange of Passive House knowledge, iPHA communicates with the media, the general public and the entire range of construction professionals.

Passive House

Passive House stands for healthy, comfortable living and impressive energy efficiency, regardless of the regional climate. Within the last several years, the Passive House concept has rapidly gained popularity, with over 60,000 residential and non-residential units in existence worldwide, and over 14,000 certified according to strict Passive House Institute certification criteria. These numbers are on the rise.
