About us

Passive House Association of Romania was founded by a few enthusiasts, in Cluj-Napoca, Romania in 2011. We are architects, engineers, students, or simply people dedicated to a goal: protecting environment by finding the balance between comfort and expenses.

The purpose of this site is to promote the Passive House Standard in Romania, to spread the principles and ideas of energy saving buildings, renewable energy sources, and above all to familiarise the reader with a responsible way of thinking when it comes to environment. As international sites and information are growing and  easy to find over the net, we focus first of all on our country, where up to now very few passive houses have been built, and a general confusion is omnipresent even among specialists.

Obviously we propose to continuously inform and educate ourselves and our members as well, through research and through sharing our knowledge or simply by having a conversation on these subjects.

On this site one can find technical articles and translations from other sources. Any suggestion is welcome, we are glad to share a word with anybody interested in this topic, and any dedicated person is welcome in our organisation.
