Suitability ensured for all climates

Darmstadt. The new version of the software for the planning of Passive House buildings is now available, offering many benefits over its predecessor. PHPP 8 includes facilitated data entry and incorporates the latest results on the integration of renewables in building energy concepts.

PHPP 8 further includes findings from the Passive House Institute’s recent research on high performance buildings in various regions in the world; additional calculations combined with newly validated algorithms ensure suitability for all climates, including those with cooling and dehumidification requirements.

The new release can be purchased online through the Passive House Institute. Another substantial planning aid will follow later this year: the newly developed designPH, a 3D design plugin for the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP), will be brought to the market. Refer to the press release for further details.
