There’s also a considerably different standard in the U.S. administered by Passive House Institute U.S. (PHIUS).
Regardless of these differences, all Passive House buildings have to follow the same basic procedures. Delve into this BuildingGreen article covering eight case studies, where we document some of the complexities and some of the problem solving required for certifying to Passive House standards in an institutional setting.
