Passive house is the future development direction in China

"Passive house" means cooling and heating in the greatest extent possible to avoid the use of traditional fossil fuels. Relying on self-generated energy from building and the rational use of renewable energy, we meet the house comfortable indoor climate requirements. These are achieved mainly by high heat insulation, sealing strong architectural facades and renewable energy implementation.

It is reported that passive house come up from Frankfurt, Germany in 1991, as the low energy consumption and high comfort energy-efficient buildings, passive houses have been rapidly promoted and widely used around the world (particularly in Germany). Generally, energy consumption of passive houses is up to 90% lower than ordinary buildings. This means people can reduce energy consumption for heating and hot water to zero or near zero.

According to the relevant information, China's annual construction area occupied more than 50% of the world, from the research it shows Chinese construction has reached more than 46 billion square meters, however, these houses are mostly non-energy-efficient buildings, they are wasting resource and also polluting the environment.

During the “Eagle PASSIVE house windows” meeting, Zhang Xiaoling said that the construction of passive houses is one of the most important ways to alleviate energy consumption and reduce the carbon dioxide emission. It plays an important role to reduce air pollution. She believes that the construction of passive houses match the interests of all parties.

Resident is the first party who benefit from passive houses, living in a passive house is comfortable without PM2.5 influence. Because of the high housing cost and additional value, real estate developers are the second party who benefit from passive house. For country, because of the advanced of features of passive house, energy consumption of heating saved, then public expenditure saved. For human beings, passive houses contribute to reducing greenhouse gas, reducing haze and the urban heat island effect. Under this we can leave the energy and resources to our kids and future generations.
