Energy modeling: simplified methods versus dynamic simulation

Do you need hourly simulations for reliably planning highly efficient buildings? Over the past few decades, the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) has proven that this is not the case.

Rather, it is crucial to have precise knowledge of the boundary conditions, to provide transparency and verifiability of the inputs, and to distinguish between what is essential and what is unimportant in the modelling of the building. This applies to the calculation of the heating demand and assessing summer comfort in non-air-conditioned buildings.

At the Passive House Institute, Jürgen Schnieders develops hourly, dynamic building simulation programs and algorithms for the monthly-based PHPP. In this webinar, he will discuss the relation of both methods in more detail.
