Prof Wolfgand Feist, doyen of the low-energy passive house movement, will be the keynote speaker at this year’s “See the Light” conference at the Dublin Institute of Technology on October 25th, which is being organised by the Passive House Association of Ireland.

In 1996, Feist founded the Passive House Institute in Darmstadt, Germany, which has since gone on to enable the construction of over 20,000 buildings worldwide – and the movement is expected to grow, given the pressing need to reduce energy consumption.

Ireland has more certified passive house designers than any other English-speaking country – and the world’s first passive house certified supermarket (in Waterford), according to the association.
