Is an independent knowledge centre on energy-efficient building, which aims to ensure continuous information about the extremely energy efficient building and related subjects, regardless of temporary project grants. was founded by Soren Pedersen, who has previously worked at the Passivhaus Institut in Darmstadt, at DTU, at Birch & Krogboe A/S (now Alectia) and at Olof Granlund Oy.

Our work has a special focus on quality in design and execution of energy-efficient building. We therefore examine larger construction and renovation projects on behalf of building owners, especially in relation to indoor climate and compliance with energy targets, and we make spot checks on construction sites. Among our customers are the Danish Building & Property Agency, large private building owners, social housing companies as well as municipalities.

In collaboration with Aarhus School of Architecture, we have trained almost 100 building professionals at the 10-day, intensive course on energy design and building physics “Certified Passive House Designer”. The participants here were typically structural architects, architects and engineers. also disseminates knowledge and experience through field trips and has organized a total of 20 field trips including in collaboration with the Danish Architects’ Association, for housing and architectural offices, including Henning Larsen Architects, KHR, Aarstiderne Architects, Nova5 and others.

Passivhus Norden

We initiated the informal Passive House Norden network in 2007 and we carry the organizational and economical responsibility for the current conference in Copenhagen. This time we have the pleasure of working with the KADK, School of Architecture and DTU Byg. In 2010 we arranged the 3rd Passivhus Norden – Sustainable Cities and Buildings in Aalborg, in constructive cooperation with Aalborg University and Aarhus School of Architecture.


We look forward to seeing you at the conference and hope to have the opportunity to work with you afterwards.
