Municipal implementation and Passive House districts
Friday, 3 May 2019, 11:15 am, Großer Saal (ground floor), simultaneous translation into English
Passive House has grown exponentially since its foundations in the mid-1980s and the construction of the first building in 1990 and today one of the emerging topics is Passive House regions and districts. Heidelberg itself is home to the largest completed Passive House district in the world and in this session the urban planning processes of Passive House districts will be investigated.
Session attendees will be able to hear from members of the Heidelberg Bahnstadt team about the development and progress of this world leading district. The session will also include presentations from two other German projects, from the cities of Waldorf, Lohfelden and Niderau, on the implementation of Passive House building standards at the regional level. A special session on renewable energy powered district heating will also be presented. This session will be essential viewing for all practitioners interested in seeing Passive House advance to the next level of development – Passive House Cities.
