The development of homes to Passivhaus standard can help to achieve a low carbon rural future.
This briefing discusses the key findings of interviews with key stakeholders in the Dormont Park Passive House Development in South West Scotland, which explored the relationships between individuals and organisations involved in the project, and the governance structures constraining or facilitating those relationships.
The work revealed that financial assistance, ambitious standards for energy efficient homes, increased training opportunities, and further guidance from the Scottish Government with regards to Scotland's housing vision for the future, are required for Passivhaus developments to succeed.
