Passive House Planning Package Design
The Passive House Planning Package is a vital and easy to use tool that consists of a series of interlinked Excel spreadsheets in one workbook for calculating energy efficiency. This Excel workbook can be used by anyone with basic Excel training and an access to Excel. PHPP provides the architect with different options to achieve the Passive House Standard and enables architects share information in the workbook with mechanical, electrical and energy consultants. Relying on standardized software such as the PHPP, encourages the development of technical dialogues and creates avenues for cross collaboration.
In addition, data can quickly be extracted from the software to provide informative graphs for clients and consultants.
