Passitherm is the brainchild of Graham Clyde, energy efficiency consultant with more than 25 years of hands-on experience. Passitherm is a Passive House Consultation and Training company that offers competitive and cutting-edge Passive House services to architects, designers and engineers among other building experts.
After years as a trainer and Passive House certified designer, Graham Clyde founded Passitherm in order to provide his knowledge and expertise to a wider professional audience. He explains his ambition,
“ Passitherm has one aim to disseminate the knowledge and expertise accumulated over the years as a way of establishing Passive House as the new building norm. I wanted to contribute to the Passive House sector in more sustainable and large-impact ways. It’s one thing being a designer and a wholly different thing being a consultant or trainer— you reach more people, you reach all the right people. Being a Passive House consultant and trainer allows me to let others know the secrets of the trade and ultimately make an eco-friendly, energy-efficient world a reality. ” – Graham Clyde
Passitherm strives to raise awareness about building energy efficient buildings and making widely-known that affordable, energy efficiency is possible. Building experts shouldn’t consider Passive House an option, but rather an imperative knowledge of our times. It is everyone’s responsibility to have new and existing buildings that are fundamentally energy efficient.
Passitherm aspires to increase the number of Passive House trained professionals by providing training and certification services to building experts across across Europe and beyond. For a full, detailed list of our services, click HERE.
