Within the European Union, in particular Germany and Austria have implemented very low energy building concepts. In Germany, the Passiv Haus Institut took the traditional concept of passive solar building as a starting point and developed concepts for very low energy buildings. The principles of passive solar building are combined with a very well insulated and air tight building envelope. More than 4000 passive houses have been built in Germany already and more than 1000 in Austria, and more and more non-residential buildings are built following the passive house technologies.
