The following section is a list of cities and administrative districts around the world that make use of the Passivhaus standard. Reading through the list I note that Hamburg, which has a bigger population than Adelaide requires that ‘municipal funding for new housing projects will be granted exclusively to Passive Houses’. In Cologne which has almost as many people as Adelaide, ‘all new buildings in the city of Cologne must be designed under the Passive House concept’. More impressive is the country of Luxembourg that stipulates ‘As of 2017, all residential new builds are required to be built to the Passive House Standard.’
This list is taken from the IPHA (International Passivhaus Associtaion) website. This is a condensed version of the list. If you would like to read it in full the link is below.
As of 2017, the country of Luxembourg has legislated that all residential new builds are required to be built to the Passive House Standard.
Every inch of our homes are not only beautifully designed, they are calculated and built to surpass the World’s most rigorous energy efficiency, comfort and sustainability standards for buildings. Every component, every wall, window and even appliance is taken into consideration when meeting the Passivhaus performance standards
To date there have been over 60,000 Passivhaus units built around the world.
