Understanding and Working with the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) will enable you to take on your first Passive House project. It provides step-by-step instruction for using the PHPP energy modelling software, which is essential for designing a Passive House building. It helps designers and architects determine how architectural choices and design features will affect the energy efficiency of high-performance buildings, and how to compensate for decreased efficiencies.
Participants will learn the structure, inputs and outputs of PHPP, and how to select appropriate climate data sets and record building measurements. The course includes modelling a sample Canadian project, where participants will assess building heat loss, energy demand and summertime overheating risk, as well as looking at the reliability of data sources and how design decisions impact the building energy demand.
Recommended for anyone who will be directly involved in the design, construction and energy modelling of Passive House buildings, including architects, engineers and design professionals, and anyone pursuing the Certified Passive House Designer/Consultant designation.
