First training course on Passive House construction in North Sweden


The regional branch organization IUC Norrbotten and Nenet Norrbotten Energy Agency via MountEE project offer the first practical training course on Passive House technique in Northern Sweden. The course will be hold by two of the foremost experts in low energy building. A unique training opportunity is offered, where participants learn the latest technology, which will help to lay the foundation for new business.

Tommy Wesslund and Simone Kreutzer from the Swedish IG Passive House in Växjö carry out the training and are going to share their expertise in energy efficient construction.IUC

The training is aimed at several main target groups – carpenters, electricians, HVAC installers, precast installers, building workers, supervisors and other professionals involved in the entire construction process. Further target groups are architects, planners, developers and designers who already have started to work on energy efficient building construction.

The intensive course is based on Passive House technology, which is the highest level of air-tight and energy efficient construction. The future demands and regulations for low energy buildings in all over Europe will affect the entire Swedish construction industry. In 2021 all new buildings have to meet the so called “NZEB Near to Zero Energy” – standard.

The training will be held in Luleå, Norrbotten County, North Sweden from 9-11 December 2014.

The detailed course program can be found here (in Swedish): Passive House training Luleå.
