Sustainable Solutions Education


Passive House is a building standard that is truly energy efficient, comfortable, affordable and ecological.
Passive House is not a brand name, but a construction concept that can be applied by anyone and that has stood the test of practice.

This building standard -originally developed in Germany- can reduce heating and cooling needs of a building by 90%. This target is reached by making the house incredibly well insulated, virtually air-tight with a continuous mechanical air supply, and by orienting and designing the house to optimize solar gain.

No matter the climate or geographical region, Passive Houses stay at a comfortable temperature year round with minimal energy input.
During warmer months, Passive Houses make use of passive cooling techniques such as strategic shading to keep comfortably cool.

Are you a building professional that cares about the environment but doesn’t know how to translate it into your business?

Would you like to design durable buildings that are comfortable, healthy, affordable, and energy efficient?

Did you know there is a method of design that can save 90% of the building’s energy consumption?

It’s called Passive House, and it is the future of the building industry!

After extensive research, certifications, and implementations of these concepts, our mission at SUSSED is to get Passive House buzzing in Australia.

We do this by:
  • Providing educational workshops  and support to companies who want to get on board in creating energy efficient spaces. 
  • Supporting local government in decision-making to incorporate the principles of Passive House Design.
  • Raising awareness in the public sector about the importance of reduced energy consumption and the vital role our homes can play in this.
