Passivhaus Bristol Conference a great success

Bristol Green Capital Place Group, put on a Passivhaus Conference in Bristol on 17 November 2015 entitled:

" How can we build greener and better buildings?  The case for Passivhaus development"

Piers Sadler led the organisation of the event supported by Place Group members and gave a presentation entitled: What is Passivhaus? which is available for download

A packed audience at Arup's Bristol office heard high profile speakers from around the country explaining why their organisations have adopted the Passivhaus Standard and the difficulties, solutions and benefits that they had encountered.  There were great presentations on Passivhaus schools and social housing and on how Exeter and Norwich City Council's have adopted and are encouraging Passivhaus development in their areas.  We were particularly privileged to hear about Exeter City Council's ground breaking leisure centre and swimming pool project, the first of its kind outside Germany.  This building will save about £200,000/yr on energy costs which will pay off the additional costs of Passivhaus in about 12 years.  We also heard about Bristol's much more modest plans which do involve Passivhaus, but we are hoping that events like this will encourage Bristol City Council to up its game when it comes to low energy, healthy housing which works as it's supposed to ie Passivhaus.
