Subject: The Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) in real life. A comparison between designed and actual performance.
Members of the local chapter of the Australian Passive House association will give a brief introduction to passive house then speak about the build experience and the experience of modelling with PHPP. Measurements have been made on one of the passive houses here in Canberra and these data will be compared with the predictions of the models.
There is a lot happening in the passive house world. For example, the new framework for planning retrofits has been released. These developments will also be discussed before the meeting is opened for discussion and questions.
