Current situation of Passive House in Europe

Within the project PASS-NET the current situation for Passive House buildings in the participating countries has been analysed. There have been about 27,600 Passive House buildings existing in the 10 PASS-NET countries at the end of 2010. It is expected that the number will rapidly rise to 65,000 buildings till 2012. Within the 10 PASS-NET countries the amount of Passive House buildings is very different. In several regions the Passive House standard is already mandatory, in other regions the first pilot projects have been build recently.
