Passivhaus Social Housing: Maximising benefits, minimising costs

Category: Guidance

The announcement of a new Future Homes Standard from 2025 will at least halve the energy use of new build property by 2030 with ‘the highest levels of energy-efficiency.’ Get a head start by building compliant homes now. Those who have already delivered Passivhaus schemes have reported significantly reduced rent arrears and shorter void periods, which has substantial impact on long-term viability.

This guide highlights significant synergies between the priorities of social housing providers and the multi-faceted benefits of successfully building and delivering Passivhaus homes. The aim is to explain why social housing providers should be aiming for Passivhaus and how to successfully implement the Standard.
