Net Zero Vs Passivhaus


 in Passivhaus, you want to put in so much insulation and such high quality windows that you barely need to heat or cool at all, minimizing energy use; In Net Zero, you want to generate enough power on site to heat, cool and light your house; it could be a draughty barn,

OK, with the proviso that the cost (actual and environmental) of creating an insulated and well sealed house is sensible, this gives a long term resilient property, that should be liveable  even if the power generation systems fail.

I’m with the bias being a super insulated and sealed house first and then minimum tech to supply on-site power (elec and heating).
