Decisionmakers gather in Innsbruck in the name of Passive House
4th PassREg International Workshop and Study Tour completed
Innsbruck, 11 October, 2013. On 9 October, decision makers from across Europe gathered in Innsbruck, Austria, to learn from the region's Passive House success stories spurred on by strong government financial support on a regional and municipal level. On the following day, the group visited various Passive House buildings in and around Innsbruck to get a first-hand look at the success story the city has to tell. Social housing projects such as the Lodenareal with its 354 Passive House apartments left a lasting impression on eager group members hoping to push Passive House in their own regions.
