 UK Passivhaus Awards 2021

We are delighted to announce the return of the UK Passivhaus Awards - celebrating the best of the best in building performance. After celebrating a decade of the Passivhaus Trust in 2020 and following a hiatus due to Covid-19, the UK Passivhaus Awards are back!

Much has changed since the previous Awards ceremony in 2018 – notably the declaration of a Climate Emergency and a sharpened awareness of the complexity, scale, and speed at which we need to act. Passivhaus buildings provide beautifully comfortable internal environments and help deliver net-zero targets by drastically slashing energy & subsequent carbon emissions from buildings. 

The Awards are free to enter for all certified Passivhaus & EnerPHit schemes which have exceptional architectural ambition and prove their impeccable building performance. We are looking for ground-breaking projects that demonstrate the standard can tackle the climate crisis and create healthy environments. Eligible schemes may enter the following categories: Small Residential, Large Residential, or Non-Domestic.



  1. To celebrate that all Passivhaus buildings can be comfortable, healthy, and beautifully designed.

  2. To promote that adopting Passivhaus is the most effective way to reduce the built sector's energy demand. This approach offers a robust solution to help mitigate Climate Emergency.

  3. To increase understanding that the standard can be applied to any building type, new-build or retrofit, and encourage uptake of the Passivhaus standard across all sectors.
