Passivhaus Living for Residents: Passivhaus is the common-sense approach to delivering well-designed, green and energy efficient homes, which particularly benefits rural areas where fuel poverty is significant. Passivhaus buildings provide a high level of occupant comfort while using very little energy for heating and cooling. Using the passivhaus method cuts carbon emissions by an estimated 90 per cent and can take the tenants’ heating bills down as low as £120 a year. They are built with meticulous attention to detail and rigorous design and construction according to principles developed by the Passivhaus Institute in Germany.
