My chosen topic is about a passive house also known as energy efficient house.
My work objectives are:
•find information about the chosen topic;
•analyze the collected literature;
•find out the main principles of the passive house;
•compared passive house with the traditional house;
•present the information;
•to make a survey, analyze the answers to find out people’s opinion about passive house.
The selected topic is important and relevant nowadays. This issue is important not only for the environment but also the ecology and economic point of view. This topic is very closely related to the architect's specialty. Then architect designs the buildings, he must account to environmental issues because there are certain requirements and standards to be followed. The European Commission approved the new standards in 2018 all new buildings constructed in Europe will be more energy efficient. This rate might in a few years to be transferred to the Lithuanian law, and specialists say that passive houses will soon be no news, but the usual standard.
The term passive house (Passivhaus in German) refers to a rigorous, voluntary standard for energy efficiency in a building, reducing its ecological footprint. It results in ultra-low energy buildings that require little energy for space heating or cooling.
