15th International Passive House Conference 2011
Venue: Congress Innsbruck, Rennweg 3, A-6020 Innsbruck/Austria
Worldwide success of the Passive House - Conference report
The 15th International Passive House Conference
can rightly be called the world's largest conference on energy-efficient
construction as a result of its awesome agenda. Half of the 1200 Conference
participants from 50 countries came from non-German-speaking countries.
The most comprehensive conference programme that has ever been presented
at a Passive House Conference was offered this time. Over 80 international
"Passive House Beginners" attended an English-language Passive
House Basics Seminar on 25th May, which took place at the Faculty of
Civil Engineering at the University of Innsbruck. On 26th and 29th May,
a total of 9 Passive House Excursions were organised for about 450 participants,
so that all the information gathered during the many presentations could
also be actually experienced by them, in the true sense of the word.
This also included some special excursions, like the visit to Passive
House public buildings that was organised for the local government representatives
of the City of Oslo, and the visit to the world's largest Passive House
residential complexes, the Lodenareal and O3 Olympia Village in Innsbruck
that was organised for a group of Korean conference participants and
a Russian delegation, including members of the State Duma.
More than 1200 participants from more than
50 countries met to discuss sustainable solutions at the world's important
convention for energy efficient construction in Innsbruck. Eight plenary
talks, 72 presentations, 30 poster presentations and a freely accessible
components exhibition rounded off the event.
We would like to thank all contributors for
the success of the conference.
