What to expect at the 2018 UK Passivhaus Conference

The 2018 UK Passivhaus Conference, the Trust's largest annual event, takes place in less than a fortnight. Join us on Tuesday 13th November, at the Cloth Hall Court in Leeds to discover the latest in near/zero carbon policy and leading low-energy developments. Here are our top 5 highlights and what not to miss at Passivhaus & the road to zero carbon:


1 - The power of policy

In Brussels, all new buildings meet Passivhaus, and Vancouver has chosen Passivhaus as its route to achieve zero carbon, going from one certified home to over 1000 units in less than three years. Joining our keynote speaker, Sean Pander from Vancouver City Council, for a timely debate on sustainable policy implementations are City Council representatives from Norwich, Exeter, Glasgow, Leeds, & Greater Manchester. Discounts are available to those working for local authorities & housing associations.
