- Achieving net-zero in architecture: Is Passive House the answer
In times of a global energy crisis and rising costs achieving net-zero by 2050 in the UK has never been so relevant. The built environment contributes substantially to global emissions. More steps need to be taken to improve the performance of our existing housing stock and how we approach new build developments in the coming years. Passivehouse is one potential solution to achieving net-zero. Is this the answer?, and what implications may this have on town planning?
