Passive House (or Passivhaus) was originally developed in Germany and has since spread throughout Europe. The standard continues to evolve and is now finding popularity in diverse climatic regions including California, Japan and Indonesia. To date 40,000 houses, schools, offices, and other building types have been built to the Passive House standard around the world.
Passive House is rapidly gaining momentum in Australia. APHA aims to make Passive House the benchmark for comfort in all our buildings.
