Passive and zero-energy houses
The issue of global warming, which can not be denied by any logical and sound judgment, has touched us more and more in the last decade. Fearing that everything is fine is naive and cowardly.
This is one of many things that affect people in their thinking. It affects them - us so much that we are beginning to think about the consequences that they have warned us about.
The global warming problem has been reflected in changes and adjustments to laws and construction.
Did you know that:
- The EU passed a law in 2010 that clearly defines the energy performance of buildings.
- From 2020 all new buildings (including family houses) will have to meet the strictest standards.
- These standards in practice mean that what we today call a passive house will be a completely normal house in 2020.
The difference between passive and zero-energy houses in terms of energy efficiency is minimal. The difference is that the passive house is still dependent on energy suppliers. (Gas, electricity)
The zero house is self-sufficient. The gas is not needed, and it produces electricity itself, from renewable sources like sun, wind and water.
