We are delighted to warmly welcome our new External Affairs Director, Duncan Smith, as the newest member of the Passivhaus Trust delivery team.

Duncan Smith, PHT External Affairs Director

With over thirty years of experience in the construction and energy industry, Duncan has worked internationally in both public and private built environment sectors. His previous role as Housing Asset & Energy Strategy Manager at Renfrewshire Council involved overseeing the investment in the regeneration and improvement of the council's homes to meet climate targets.

Duncan is a member of the Scottish Government Zero Emissions Social Housing Taskforce (ZEST) and has also been part of the working group of the Energy Efficiency Standard for Social Housing (EESSH) since 2012. Most recently, Duncan has been involved in the United Nations Economic Council for Europe (UNECE) Thought Leaders Group at COP26.

As a long standing Passivhaus supporter, Duncan will play a crucial role in the scaling-up of Passivhaus in the UK and in the future development of the Trust. We look forward to welcoming Duncan in the new year.
