In this workshop, cost effective ventilation concepts, including new ideas for air distribution, will be introduced and discussed. Especially in the case of centralized ventilation systems where fire and noise protection requirements must be met, cost effectiveness can become a challenge. This workshop will explore these aspects and also look into decentralised systems, where the use of prefabricated elements can result in simplified installation and general cost savings. This informative workshop will also serve as an opportunity for the exchange of practical experience.

The worldwide market for highly efficient, cost effective windows is outpacing the spread of the knowledge needed to manufacture them, resulting in a frustrating bottle neck. This workshop, put on by Benjamin Krick of the Passive House Institute and Franz Freundorfer of pro Passivhausfenster, will help to ease that bottle neck by providing window manufacturers, designers, and other interested parties with expert knowledge on high performance windows.

Business case seminar                                     

This seminar, supported by the EU-funded EuroPHit project and put on by the Passive House Institute, explores the business case for Passive House concepts and components. The half-day event will provide insight into the economics of building energy efficiency and high performance building components, as well using the PHPP to compare the business cases for design variants. The basics of economic feasibility calculations and boundary conditions will be explained as will the influence of funding programmes.
