Day 1: Tuesday 9th October

Regeneration Hub

Passivhaus at the heart of regeneration

Residents who endure energy-efficient regeneration schemes reap life-changing benefits. Not only does it create comfy homes & tiny energy bills (helping to eliminate fuel poverty), it can also help create a sense of place & strong community pride. The case studies in this session provide a range of examples delivering regeneration at scale, and to Passivhaus Standard!
