Camden Passivhaus research to be published in Energy and Buildings

The Camden Passivhaus is one of the lowest energy dwellings ever monitored in the UK

Dr Ian Ridley's research paper published in collaboration with the bere:architects technical team: 'The Monitored Performance of the first new London dwelling certified to the Passive House standard' will be published in 'Energy and Buildings'.

Here is an extract from Dr Ridley's paper: 

"The total gas and electricity consumption of the house in the first year of monitoring was 6576 kWh, or 65.1 kWh/m2 per annum. The Camden Passive House is therefore one of the lowest energy dwellings ever monitored in the UK. The BedZed development consumed approximately 90 kWh/m2, The Long House 80 kWh/m2, The Bioregional One Brighton apartments have a median energy consumption of 72 kWh/m2. Only the Princedale Road retrofit dwelling with a total energy consumption of 62.5 kWh/m2 is less than the Camden passive House."

These results were achieved while maintaining average winter living room temperatures of 22.4 degrees C

Funding for the study was provided by the UK's Technology Strategy Board under their Building Performance Evaluation Programme. 

When we have a publication date we will announce this.

My houses, still ignored in Chewton mendip, have been monitored for three years and have a total energy consumption of 46.8kWh/m2. Cost £1000/m2 to build. internal living area, not total area btw. You don't believe me, come and collect the meter box key. You have my number Justin.
Hello, I just wanted apt mention, I disagree Your post doesn't acquaint any sense.
Wonderful. If this would be apply to every house, a lot of people will benefit.
