Cafe Scientifique:

Building and Living in a Passivhaus

PassivhausUK research logo

Talk by Nigel Dutt on Passivhaus Construction.

We recently built our ‘Grand Design’ in East Devon and have just completed a year living in it. It is a certified Passivhaus and it has proved to be energy positive, having produced 40% more power than it consumed, as well as being carbon negative and costing nothing to run. I will talk about Passivhaus principles and the design and building approach for our house, as well as the installed technology that enabled us to achieve these results. I will then look at how it actually performed throughout the first year.


Part of the Clean Growth Series.

New: Entry is £2 which includes a cup of assorted tea or coffee and a biscuit
