About Course

The Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) is an MS Excel-based energy balance and efficiency design tool for highly energy-efficient buildings and retrofits. It provides all relevant calculations and verifications clearly and simply. With PHPP version 10, several new functions are released in addition to feature extensions.

  • Demand for Primary Energy Renewable (PER) per year and Primary Energy demand (PE) of all energy services in the entire building [kWh/(m²a)]
