PHN Presents: Introduction to Honeybee-PH

October 25 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT

The Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) is a trusted, effective tool for assessing a building’s energy performance and is critical for any Certified Passive House project. But for many types of buildings it can be very challenging to accurately model complex geometry, detailed multi-zone usage profiles, and non-residential mixed-use scenarios. ‘Honeybee-PH’ is a new, free, open-source software toolkit for use with the popular sustainability assessment package ‘Ladybug-Tools’ (https://www.ladybug.tools/) which enables efficient, flexible modeling of these types of large and complex Passive House buildings.
The new ‘Honeybee-PH’ software toolkit allows users to easily leverage the powerful features of the Ladybug-Tools for managing geometry, materials, and mechanical systems across large and complex models, while also adding in the functionality required for complete detailed, certification-ready Passive House PHPP models and supporting documentation. By utilizing this new software toolkit, users can now easily output dynamic energy models, daylighting and thermal comfort assessments, as well as a complete PHPP – all from the same 3D BIM model.

Ed May will demonstrate some of the key workflows and features of this new toolkit, and describe how he and the rest of the Building-Type team are using this new platform to deliver successful Passive House projects at a range of scales.
