Passivhaus Trust 10th Anniversary

2020 Passivhaus Trust 10th Anniversary

In 2010, the Passivhaus Trust was founded. Now, in 2020, we celebrate the tenth anniversary, over 1300 certified Passivhaus dwellings across the UK, a prestigious Stirling Prize win for a Council-led Passivhaus development, and many more milestones.

We’ve come this far through the collective efforts of all the architects, consultants, contractors, engineers and forward-thinking clients who are committed to a more sustainable built environment, and for this celebration we want to bring all these voices together. Hear the thoughts of some of our members and collaborators below.

At the closing session of the conference on Wed 25 Nov, we heard from some of those who have advanced the standard over the last decade, and together discussed what actions we can all take to move it forward. Watch the full recording of the session here, or sample some snippets below.

The UK Passivhaus Awards have celebrated the best projects in the UK certified to the Passivhaus standard over the last decade, and you can take a virtual tour of a selection of the winners in the playlist below. The Awards return in 2021!
