2021 Earth Day- Efficient: The first renewable energy

On April 22nd, 2021,le't repair the earth together with Passive House Insitute!  We have been engaged in this global sustainable event for over 20 years. This year, iPHA has launched a brand new video-Efficient: The first renewable energy. The aim of this action is to emphasize energy efficiency. By using renewable energy efficiently, we can highly reduce the energy demand. 

The United Nation’s IPCC highlights the substantial action needed to limit global warming. Currently, 35% of global energy consumption comes from the building sector alone. The operational stage is the largest contributor to carbon emissions, with the majority of this stemming from heating and cooling demand. Therefore, think #EfficiencyFirst!

The Passive House standard (or EnerPHit for retrofits) provides a pathway to meeting our climate goal.Passive House stands for comfort, health, sustainability and savings. As the name suggests, Passive House buildings make efficient use of passive heating and cooling sources. This means they are heated mainly from the sun and from heat by people and equipment. During the warmer months, strategic, passive cooling techniques such as night ventilation and shading keep Passive House buildings comfortably cool. This substantially reduces the need for active cooling.

Let's build efficiently together. More video can refer to : https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnfvPyFz72o2Uht8dRceIk3zDW9aTTNSW


The International Passive House Association (iPHA):
iPHA is a global network uniting both Passive House experts and enthusiasts alike. Together with its 22 Affiliate Organisations, iPHA works to promote the Passive House standard and foster a greater public understanding of its benefits and achievability. The network makes a wealth of information available and facilitates active exchange among professionals, policymakers and the public. More information:https://passivehouse-international.org
