Goals and activities
Connecting the Passive House sector
iPHA serves as a communication platform for its members, where the listing of members and their activities in the member database plays an important role in connecting the community. Whether you are seeking companies, project partners, and experts or you would just like to share your experiences, iPHA helps you find other Passive House stakeholders both online and through Passive House events.
Forging partnerships with Passive House organisations worldwide
iPHA officially affiliates with independent Passive House Associations internationally that have agreed to uphold high standards in their work and have integrated their membership with that of iPHA's. iPHA works with affiliate organisations to encourage open exchange and strengthen links within the community.
Sharing expertise on the Passive House Standard
iPHA disseminates Passive House knowledge by connecting the local to the global and fostering information flow in both directions to the benefit of all involved. Regular emails and publications detail the latest developments on the Passive House market. iPHA members communicate directly with one another on the iPHA Forum and Passipedia, the resource for everything and anything Passive House, offers a wealth of up to date Passive House knowledge online. The goal: to disseminate and advance knowledge about the Passive House Standard and ensure its consistent high quality.
Building awareness of the Passive House concept
The International Passive House Association (iPHA) promotes the Passive House Standard, as developed by the Passive House Institute, in the public arena. Complete, up to date information can be found on this website, which also presents iPHA members and affiliates. To help raise awareness, iPHA facilitates Passive House events such as the annual International Passive House Days and assists with the annual Passive House Conference. Additionally, regular press releases in both the daily and specialised press help to raise the profile of Passive Houses in the media.
Showcasing completed projects and resident experiences
iPHA encourages the documentation of completed Passive House buildings as well as the experiences of residents and users – essential for communication on the advantages of Passive House to the wider public. All iPHA members can present their completed Passive House projects in an online database carried out in partnership with Passivhaus Dienstleistung GmbH. Additionally, iPHA offers its members support in showing their Passive House Projects in the context of the annual International Passive House Days.
Informing on the development of the Passive House market
The iPHA serves as the point of reference for Passive House questions while providing valuable information to professionals, communicators and the general public alike. Detailed information and downloads for all stakeholders can be found throughout the iPHA website. iPHA members receive the added benefit of access to special materials and Passipedia, the Passive House resource.
