About the ClimArchiNet project
The project is mainly funded by the EUKI. EUKI is an initiative of the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Protection (BMWK), the mission of which is to encourage cooperation within the EU in terms of further development and implementation of ambitious climate-related policy. Through the EUKI, the stakeholders in the field of climate can learn from each other. The initiative promotes intra-European dialogue, exchange of best practices, awareness raising and knowledge transfer.
The project implementation is ensured through the cooperation between:
- Centrum pasivního domu, z.s(CZE) /Passive House Centre
- Inštitútprepasivné domy(SK) Institute for Passive Houses
The aim of the project is to identify the current situation and support development of innovative processes, materials and technologies for the preparation and implementation of buildings with very low energy needs throughout their life cycle. Support transformation of the building sector towards carbon neutrality, building adaptation to climate change and social and energy security. More information about the project and its activities in the Czech Republic can be found on the CPD website and on the climarchi.net information platform.

Identifying the gaps and barriers in deep energy renovation of school buildings through UPGREAT
The UPGREAT project works to upgrade professionals’ skills for deep renovations which are needed to sustainably transform the buildings sector to fulfil high energy and low carbon emissions standards.
Prof. Wolfgang Feist / The “Father” of the Passive House Idea
As part of the ClimArchiNet project, The “Father” of the Passive House Idea Prof. Wolfgang Feist presented goals that focused on decarboniziation of the building sector at the International Conference “Connecting Buildings & Sustainability” which took place on 30 November 2021.
Dr. Jürgen Schnieders / Development of Energy Efficient Buildings
The premiere of Dr. Jürgen Schnieders’ video presentation on “The development of energy-efficient buildings and their impact on the climate” took place on November 30, 2021 during the live moderated broadcast of the Passive House Centre’s International Conference Connecting Buildings & Sustainability.
ClimArchiTrip / Six Pieces of Experience from Berlin
As part of the ClimArchiNet project in Czech Republic, in cooperation with the Technical University of Berlin, we prepared a 3-day study trip for a group of 24 experts from the Czech Republic visiting inspiring buildings with professional guides and an interpreter into Czech. The aim of this trip was to present 6 examples of current construction projects in Berlin.
ClimArchiTrip – Sustainable Architecture in Austria
The ClimArchiNet EUKI project is coming to an end. On a final study tour, participants had the chance to discover sustainable architecture in Vienna.
ClimArchiNet: How to transform cities and regions towards carbon neutrality?
On 22nd March 2022, EUKI Project ClimArchiNet invited local governments to the 2nd Round Table to discuss how cites and urban regions can achieve climate neutrality. The event was organized by the Institute for Passive House in cooperation with the Union of Slovak Cities.
Local Energy Transition in a City Tandem
In 2019, the first “Franco-German Energy Transition Week” took place in 70 cities in France and Germany. A second virtual edition was organized in 2021 by Energy Cities. The project launched the “Tandem” initiative, in which 15 French-German climate action partnerships are now leading local energy transition projects in their cities and communities. The cities of Metz and Worms were elected ‘champion partnership’ in 2019. They developed an Escape Game on climate change and conducted a joint study on heat islands and climate oases.
In 2021, 10 energy transition actions, including a participatory construction site on ecological renovation, were funded with support from the Franco-German Citizens’ Fund.
UPGREAT: Renovation following the Passive House Concept
The UPGREAT project works to upgrade professionals’ skills for deep renovations which are needed to sustainably transform the buildings sector to fulfill high energy and low carbon emissions standards.
