International Passive House Conference

Leipzig, Germany April 17 - 18

The 2015 International Passive House Conference will be held from 17 to 18 April 2015 in Leipzig, showcasing the world's most advanced and proven construction standard for ultra-low-energy buildings. You are invited to attend! Over a hundred speakers from around the world will present exemplary projects and solutions for buildings, windows and ventilation systems, both for new builds and retrofits. The incomparable manufacturers' exhibition will provide hundreds of examples of Passive House-quality products currently available on the market. The conference programme and registration is now online at:

CanPHI directors Tomaz Stich and Malcolm Isaacs will join other Canadians at the Leipzig conference, and the followng week will tour European CLT and wood-fibre board manufacturers to develop new business options and solutions for Canadian Passive House builders and designers.



Passive House building certification has been developed by the Passivhaus Institut as a highly rigorous quality control process, which ensures that Certified buildings will indeed function according to all aspects of the Passive House Standard. If you are planning to have your project certified, CanPHI strongly recommends that you contact a building Certifier during the design phase, as many offer a Design Phase Review service. This takes much of the risk of certification out of the process, and helps avoid costly mistakes and oversights. For more information see the Building Certification page. CanPHI is now developing new options and partnerships to help Canadian builders and designers achieve Certification.
