The thesis is concerned with the theme of energy savings in the Building industry. It describes passive house development in detail with a focus on the construction part of buildings with low energy consumption.
At first, there is an overview of the actual situation concerning the new European Union’s restrictions and a basic classification of energy efficient buildings is introduced. Further, construction compositions in two energy standards are designed for a few selected construction systems suitable for a passive house.
They are evaluated from different points of view and compared to each other. Finally, an estimate of the passive house value is given as well as return of extra investments with regards to energy price increase.
