Passive House

Öyler (4).jpeg

The Passive House concept, which comes from the German word “PassivHaus, is an energy efficient, comfortable, economical and environmentally friendly building standard.

Developed in 1991, this standard is the foremost of international energy standards. The certification process is carried out by Darmstadt Passive House Institute in Germany.

Passive Houses have a high level of energy efficiency and comfort. Passive Houses are built in Europe, America, Asia and the South Pacific and are truly a global solution for energy efficient and sustainable buildings.

The Passive House standard is clearly defined and suitable for all building types in all climatic zones. 

Passive House offers realistic, cost-effective solutions for an economical building that provides a high level of living comfort while using very little energy for heating and cooling.


Features of Passive Houses

High insulation levels

Well insulated joinery and Windows

Design and construction without thermal bridges

An air tight outer Shell

High efficiency heat or energy recovery ventilation

Global Warming

Global warming causes various changes in countries in environmental, social, health and economic aspects. In a report published by the IPCC (Intergovermental Panel on Climate Change: Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) in 2007, it is stated that 90% of the cause of global climate change is caused by human activities.

In the climate change Paris Agreement signed in 2015, the United Nations says that keeping global warming below 1.5 degrees is important for humanity.

Energy Efficiency

Increasing supply is not the only way to meet energy demand. The first precaution to be taken, both economically and ecologically, is to manage the demand. The quickest and most inexpensive way to reduce carbon emissions is to take measures for energy efficiency.


Renewable energy

With current technologies, it is possible to meet almost all of the global energy demand in 2050 from renewable energy sources.


Prevention of deforestation

17% of human-induced greenhouse gas emissions are due to land use change, particularly deforestation. Stopping and reversing the loss and degradation of forests is a central element of all positive climate energy scenarios.
