Passivhaus Affiliate

Local Authority & Housing Association Event

Date: 23 June 2016 Time: 12.30 - 16.30
Location: London (TBC) Cost: Free and exclusively for LAs and HAs


The purpose of this event is to further develop relationships with leading local authorities and housing associations who have adopted, or are considering adopting the Passivhaus standard, in order to find out how to encourage greater uptake.

The aim is to find out what they have tried to do and why, and how they’ve succeeded in getting to this point, and if there are any barriers stopping them adopting Passivhaus, and what can the Trust do to help remove some of the barriers?
