Passive House is the strictest energy efficiency standard in the world. It
is a performance standard with rigorous and verifiable thresholds which
have been met by many building typologies in every climate. The standard is
also based on a comfort and health criteria to provide a holistic
experience for occupants. While being very strict, once mastered Passive
House is surprisingly flexible, providing designers multiple compliance
paths and immediate performance feedback, backed up by a fast growing and
