Carmarthenshire County Council have invested in building new schools to the Passivhaus standard.  Efficiency without compromise focuses on educating and promoting a greater awareness of the principles and techniques used in the design, construction, and maintenance of a variety of existing Passivhaus schemes in Carmarthenshire. 

The training programme will cover a variety of topics, including building science, energy efficiency, airtightness, ventilation, insulation, and passive-solar design delivered through theoretical and some hands-on activities.

The programme will include lectures, webinars and demonstration of existing regional case studies.   

Fully funded training will include;. 

  • Passivhaus for Trades
  • Passivhaus for Designers
  • Passivhaus for Practice / Maintenance (new and bespoke)

The training will include the use of energy modelling software and airtightness tests to help participants understand and optimize the energy performance of these buildings. 

In addition to the technical aspects, the training program will also cover the social and economic benefits of building energy-efficient buildings, such as improved health and well-being, reduced energy bills, environmental footprint and promote sustainable development.
