Ireland joins the Passive House league of nations

Passive houses are getting common technology in Germany, and have been successfully introduced in Austria, Belgium, France, Scandinavia and Switzerland. Now Ireland joins this league of nations with the opening of the first passive house near Wicklow. The passive house was 10% more expensive to construct, but reduces heating energy consumption by a factor 10.
