Energy efficiency in public buildings - a workshop for the municipal level

4.4.2024, 14:00 – 4.4.2024, 18:30, Innsbruck, Austria


In the run-up to the Passive House Conference, representatives of cities and towns as well as housing associations will meet for a special two-part workshop. You are cordially invited to join us!

Part I (2.00 pm - 4.00 pm)
The first part of this work­shop is par­tic­u­larly rel­ev­ant for rep­res­ent­at­ives of loc­al ad­min­is­tra­tions. It provides par­ti­cipants with an ini­tial/in-depth over­view of the im­ple­ment­a­tion of pub­lic build­ing pro­jects to the Pass­ive House stand­ard or as En­erPHit re­fur­bish­ments. The spe­cial fea­tures, po­ten­tials and ad­vant­ages of these two stand­ar­ds will be high­lighted. Par­ti­cipants will then learn spe­cif­ic strategies for the suc­cess­ful, highly en­ergy-ef­fi­cient im­ple­ment­a­tion of their build­ing pro­jects by look­ing at ex­amples of suc­cess­ful pub­lic pro­jects in which in­di­vidu­al meas­ures have en­abled a sig­ni­fic­ant im­prove­ment in build­ing com­fort as well as sig­ni­fic­ant en­ergy sav­ings in op­er­a­tion.

Part II (4.30 pm - 6.30 pm)
The second part of the work­shop will fo­cus spe­cif­ic­ally on the seri­al re­fur­bish­ment of so­cial hous­ing and is there­fore aimed in par­tic­u­lar at pub­lic and private hous­ing com­pan­ies. Dif­fer­en­ces to non-PH/En­erPHit pro­jects in terms of re­du­cing thermal bridges and en­sur­ing air­tight­ness will be presen­ted and fur­ther chal­lenges in high-qual­ity build­ing re­fur­bish­ments to the En­erPHit stand­ard will be dis­cussed. Par­ti­cipants will also learn how vent­il­a­tion con­cepts and sus­tain­able heat sup­ply can be taken in­to ac­count dur­ing re­fur­bish­ment. The the­or­et­ic­al know­ledge trans­fer is roun­ded off by present­a­tions of suc­cess­ful seri­al En­erPHit re­fur­bish­ments that have already been car­ried out.

In the days following this workshop on 5 and 6 April 2024, the 27th International Passive House Conference and Exhibition - the hub of energy-efficient building - will also take place in Innsbruck. Stay in Innsbruck for this unique opportunity!
