The Passive House Planning Package or PHPP energy model is the backbone of optimized Passive House design and construction. Version 10 is now being released in English and contains a variety of significant updates to further enhance designers’ abilities. PHPP 10 contains helpful new add-ons and new features for the energy balancing of highly efficient buildings, including the calculation of heat pumps has been improved, and split devices are now included as well. Another new feature is a stress test for summer comfort, which is helpful for planning buildings in an already noticeably shifting climate. Furthermore, PHPP 10 features a new sheet for the comparison of calculated results with measured data. The new version also simplifies the input of more complex windows, improves the algorithm for heat losses through the ground, and provides lots of further improvements. Note the intial English version is in metric with the Imperial version to be released later this year.
Join Jessica Grove-Smith a managing director at the Passive House Institute for an in-depth walk-through of the PHPP10 updates and their implications for greater building design optimization. Jessica will also provide further updates from PHI on a range of global topics and initiatives, and provide an extended Q&A discussion period.
