The global energy crisis has created the need for implementing energy-efficient solutions in the case of spatial planning and architecture. Raised energy prices encourage energy saving and implementation of new technologies (eco-friendly technologies). These aspirations are met by introducing appropriate technological solutions, to ensure the highest self-sufficiency of buildings, and by using renewable energy sources to cover the remaining energy needs. The concept of passive housing has become the answer to all these needs – it features thermal comfort with minimum energy requirements. Additional implementation with the use of renewable energy sources was proposed in this article, in order to achieve partial independence from traditional technical infrastructure.
