Passivhaus comes from a desire to lower energy consumption and create better buildings – we can all agree on those goals as being worthy of pursuing. So, while I would not advocate that Passivhaus needs KNX, I would like to suggest that KNX can help ensure that it is implemented effectively – especially on bigger buildings, be it large residences up to large commercial. A case in point is the University of Leicester Medical School, the UKs largest Passivhaus building with KNX environmental control, designed and installed by IBT Controls.

Passivhaus does not need KNX - the same as a standard house does not need a BMS system.
