Civic House Passive House Study

The Civic House received funding for a feasibility study to investigate what would be required to bring Civic House to the Passive House standard. “Passive House” concept; an energy‐efficient building design implemented throughout Europe, but only recently gaining a toehold in the United States. A passive house achieves overall energy savings of 60‐ 70% and 90% of space heating without applying expensive "active" technologies like photovoltaics or solar thermal hot water systems.
