Guido Wimmers discusses the experience of Passive House in Canada and shows the fundamental components of Passive House design, with examples and potential contradictions in the current building industry and policy.
The Passive House approach to construction is a highly ambitious response to global climate change and energy security issues.
Guido Wimmers is one of the initiators of Canada’s first Passive House in Whistler and has worked on Passive House projects all across Canada. He is also co-author of the Passive Design Tool Kit of the City of Vancouver and a founding director of the Canadian Passive House Institute.
