Passive House

Optimising the life-cycle of plus-energy house concepts

The project investigates which building concepts and energy supply technologies have the least negative impact on the environment over their entire life cycle. Additionally, the economic efficiency of the individual concepts was taken into account in order to find a concept that can be implemented on a broad scale. A house in timber frame construction with a high insulation standard and heat generation by means of heat pumps represents an ecologically as well as economically sensible solution.
