Energy Efficiency of Homes

We now have several Passive Houses in California. A book will be published shortly. I can share with you the information if you are interested. The Passive House standard will become part of the new building law in the European Union to ensure that Europe is able to fullfill it's Carbon emissions. I will post details shortly.

Energy Efficiency of Homes

Response
As you might or might not know, in Germany and other European Countries their is a legal requirment to provide an "Energy Passport" with the sale or lease of a residential and commercial building. The biggest new thing in Europe is the "Passiv Haus", a building standard that has been on a huge success for the last 10 years. Anyone interested in finding out more can email me.

Energy Efficiency of Homes
It seems to me that as an industry we have not done much to assist buyers in identifying homes that are more energy efficient and therefore less costly to operate (lower utility bills etc). We are comparing our MPG on cars, but are not asking for the same on our homes, which cost more than 20x as much as a car. Do any of you ask for the last few years of energy bills when considering the purchase of a home?
