The certification of a Passive House through the Passive House Institute or any of its accredited Building Certifiers offers enhanced quality assurance. The vast experience of these Certifiers benefits designers throughout the planning process whereas the certification itself provides evidence of the building’s quality. Many (but far from all) Certified Passive Houses can be found in this global database, and world map.

All buildings are candidates for certification, including Residential Buildings, Non-Residential Buildings, and Substantial Renovations.
