Jörn Kaluza | Improving the electricity efficiency of indoor swimming pools

When it comes to primary energy consumption in Passive House swimming pools, electricity dominates. This paper uses practical examples to present possibilities for optimization and power savings, especially in terms of ventilation and pool water treatment equipment.

Jessica Grove-Smith | Energy efficiency in Passive House swimming pools: demand and consumption of the “Lippe” bath

In 2013, analysis of the data gleaned from monitoring in the first two years of operation of the Passive House indoor swimming pool in Lünen was completed. This paper discusses key findings with emphasis on the comparison of energy demand calculations to measured consumption, and derives planning values from the findings.

Kristin Bräunlich | Aspects of efficient ventilation in hospitals

Ventilation makes up a large share of total energy demand in hospitals, with especially high air exchange rates required in specific areas. Optimized control of outdoor air demand and a reduction in pressure losses for individual components provide considerable energy-savings potential.

Oliver Kah | Baseline study − implementing the Passive House concept in hospitals

To evaluate and tap the conservation potential of retrofits and energy-efficient new builds, the State of Hesse studied basic issues for the implementation of the Passive House Standard in hospitals. This paper presents the main insights from the baseline study.

L. Lepp, J. Schnieders | Passive House super markets on the rise: requirements, examples and results

Refrigeration of goods consumes the most energy in supermarkets. Ideally, the waste heat resulting from the process can be used to cover the supermarket's heat demand without additional heating technology. In the Passive House supermarkets already completed, efficiency improvements led to significant reductions in power consumption.
