Title: klima:aktiv house partners
The Austrian Prefabricated House Association together with the initiative klima:aktiv House initiated a klima:aktiv training program with the goal of planning and computing a klima:aktiv or passive house. Certification was achieved by a reference project that was assessed and evaluated by the Energy Institute of Vorarlberg. The course treated topics that are significant for attaining the klima:aktiv or passive house standard as well as interfaces for optimal cooperation with experts and construction companies. In prefabricated houses that meet the klima:aktiv standards, the heating requirements and thus its CO2 emissions can be reduced by an additional 30% over conventional prefabricated houses.
