'Have courage': interview with Dr. Wolfgang Feist on Passive House activity
Thursday, September 28th, 2017
Dr. Wolfgang Feist, director of the Passive House Institute and Julia, reporter of Korea IT Times discuss about Passive House.
The energy over-consumption is threatening the very existence of the human civilization on the planet is a view echoed by scientists – and indeed, everyday citizens – the world over. The question of course is what can be done about this most basic of existential threats.
The Passive House concept goes back to the late 1980s and early 1990s and is derived from the basic physical low conservation of energy. (Dr. Feist is a physicist by training.) Passive Houses aren’t so much architectural designs as they are voluntary standards that builders agree to adhere to in order to build extremely low-energy houses whose ecological footprints are tiny. The Passive House standard is a unified standard across the globe, based on solid science, but is not uniform for every country because the standards are wholly voluntary. Passive House Korea (PHIKO), for example, stipulates that Passive Houses use 5L of natural gas per square meter per year – as opposed to PHI’s (Passive House Institute based in Germany) recommendation of 1.5L. Still, Dr. Feist says, any improved standard, even if it is not passive house, is better than nothing.

이런 좋은 기사가 왜 한글 신문에는 실리지 않았는지 궁금합니다.
저희 협회를 잘 아는 외국 친구가 이 기사를 보고 메세지를 보내 와서 알았습니다. ㅠㅠ
기자의 질문 내용도 좋습니다. 사전에 미리 자료를 많이 본 듯 싶었습니다.
기사 내용을 보면, 우리나라에서의 패시브하우스에 관한 움직임을 독일 PHI가 어떻게 인지하고 있으며, 저희 협회의 활동에 대한 시각이 어떤지를 비교적 명확히 알 수 있습니다.
그나저나, 파이스트박사가 우리나라의 온돌에서 이불깔고 한번 자보았으면 하는 바램이 있습니다.
ps . 기사 중의 watering down 은 "물타기"로 읽으시면 되실 듯 합니다.^^
