Renew your certificate by submitting a project documentation


You can submit your project documentation not only to the Passive House Institute but also to other assessing bodies and documentation may be submitted in all the languages offered by the respective assessing body (only a summary in English is required in addition)


But what if...


No problem! By submitting a project documentation, it is possible to renew a certificate at any time, even if your certificate has already expired some time ago.

It is not that serious... besides certified Passive House buildings or EnerPHit retrofits, PHI Energy Saving Buildings are also suitable for a project documentation.

A possible solution: You can also apply for certification yourself. This is worth considering in the case of smaller projects with low certification costs! Please contact one of the many building certifiers around the world.
