PHI Research

The Passive House Institute (PHI) was born out of scientific research and applied science. PHI set out to bridge the gap between the scientific research world and the world of building industry applications. Here we’ll gather some of that research and explanations of it, starting with a very useful overview by Jürgen Schnieders in February 2021.

Jürgen Schnieders, senior scientist at PHI, tells the story of the role of research at PHI, from the beginning to the current moment – illustrating the relationship between research, the development of practical tools that can be used by designers and builders and the data collected from the resulting buildings.
