Rachel Mitchell

Rachel is a certified Passivhaus designer and runs an energy consultancy supporting new build and retrofit dwellings through the Passivhaus design process to certification. Alongside this work, Rachel is a research PhD student at the University of Bath and is working in conjunction with the Passivhaus Trust, collating post occupancy data on certified Passivhaus homes in the UK. This research is focusing on measured heating demand and internal temperatures, to demonstrate if new Passivhaus homes are meeting the design standard once built and occupied.
