The growing pains of Passive House in the US couldn’t be more evident at this point, especially with the tension of keeping the standard intact while also having it properly reflect the region in which it is implemented. After the Director of Passivhaus International (PHI) wrote a public letter severing ties with Passive House Institute US, PHUIS issued an emotional response to the accusations and went on to detail what they feel led to the estrangement. The very public break up of these two organizations leaves a lot of questions about why it happened – are the accusations accurate? And most importantly what does this mean for the future of Passive House in the US? What’s interesting is how the standard itself is not the issue, but rather the way it is being implemented, and also that such a straightforward system has led to such a public brouhaha.
