The global Passive House platform


Passive House stands for healthy, comfortable living and impressive energy efficiency, regardless of the regional climate. Within the last several years, Passive House has rapidly increased in popularity, with over 41,600 units certified according to the strict Passive House Institute certification criteria representing a total floor area of 3,866,000 m² TFA (as of 01/2024). Many of these quality-assured examples are included in the Passive House database, which documents nearly 5,700 Passive House buildings. 


It is in everyone's interest that we safeguard the high quality associated with the Passive House Standard while fostering a greater public understanding of its significance internationally. The International Passive House Association (iPHA) was formed by the Passive House Institute in order to advance the Passive House Standard worldwide as well as the quality for which it stands.
