Transfer initiative - The future belongs to the passive house
With its saving potential of 80% for new buildings and up to 95% for renewing old ones, the passive house is the most sustainable and economically feasible total concept of future-oriented construction standards. Accordingly, it plays a particularly important role in the programme line "Building of Tomorrow", in which research projects on passive houses are the largest group.
Contents and aims
With its active transfer-mix of different activities, the community of interests "IG Passivhaus Österreich" aims at a maximum spread of know-how transfer to all target groups. Almost all research projects conducted within the framework of "House of the Future" on passive houses involved member companies and/or institutions.
Survey of the targets envisaged for the transfer initiative "Passive House goes Standard" for broad implementation of the "Building of Tomorrow" research results on passive houses:
- On 16 trade fairs throughout Austria in two years the concept of a theme hall on the passive house offers expert information and advice through a blend of presentations of research results on "House of the Future", coordinated major exhibitions of passive house components, technical presentations and evening events.
- Lobbying activities at community level aiming at "building at least one passive house in every community in Austria by the year 2010"
- Build up and intensification of the transfer stage to reach the following targets by 2010:
- 25% of new buildings constructed to passive house standard
- 50 passive house buildings under renewal or already completed
- Each province of Austria has at least 1 public passive house building
- Keep the international leading edge of Austrian industry in the future-oriented passive house standard due to transfer of know-how of research objects
