-===== The Passive House Planning Package =====+=====Passive House Design Tools=====
-|The **Passive House Planning Package (PHPP)** (order [[|here]]) contains everything necessary for designing a properly functioning Passive House. The PHPP prepares an energy balance and calculates the annual energy demand of the building. \\ \\ [[planning:calculating_energy_efficiency:phpp_-_the_passive_house_planning_package|Read more]]|{{:picopen:phpp_passive_house_planning_package.png?400|}} \\ The PHPP consists of a **printed manual** with a **CD**. The manual not only elucidates the calculation methods used in the PHPP but also explains other important key points in the construction of Passive Houses. The CD contains a tool based on Excel (or an equivalent spreadsheet software programme) with different worksheets containing the respective inputs and calculations for various areas.| \\ +^Category^Tools^Description^Languages^ 
-|**designPH**a newly developed 3D data entry and design modelling tool (SketchUP plugin) for the PHPP is available now. [[planning:calculating_energy_efficiency:phpp_-_the_passive_house_planning_package:designph_plugin|Read more]]|   {{:picopen:designph_logo.png?200}}    \\ +|**[[Design Tools]]**|**[[|PHPP]]**|The PHPP is an easy-to-use planning tool for energy efficiency, for the use of architects and planning experts. The reliability of the calculation results and ease of use of this planning tool has already been experienced by several thousand usersFor more informationclick [[planning:calculating_energy_efficiency:phpp_-_the_passive_house_planning_package|here]].|EN, DE| 
-\\ +|:::|**[[|designPH]]**|designPH 2 is a plugin for the popular 3D design software SketchUp which gives quick results using automatic analysisFor more informationclick [[planning:calculating_energy_efficiency:phpp_-_the_passive_house_planning_package:designph_plugin|here]].|ENDE| 
- +|:::|**[[|bim2PH]]**|bim2PH is the new BIM Tool developed by the Passive House Institute, which allows efficiency data entry in 3D BIM software and transfers information for the energy balance calculation and efficiency design into the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP).|EN, DE| 
- +|:::|**[[|districtPH]]**|districtPH is used to create energy balances for neighborhoods, from smaller groups of buildings up to whole districts.|EN|
-===== Climate data tool ===== +
- +
-|With this tool you can retrieve climatic data in the [[planning:calculating_energy_efficiency:phpp_-_the_passive_house_planning_package|PHPP]] data format for any location in the world except Antarctica. The data were developed on the basis of satellite data which were obtained from the NASA Langley Research Center Atmospheric Sciences Data Center POWER Project. Assessment and processing for the use within the PHPP took place at the Passive House Institute. \\  [[planning:calculating_energy_efficiency:phpp_-_the_passive_house_planning_package:climate_data_tool|Read more / Use the climate data tool]]|{{:picopen:screenshot_klimadatentool.png?900}}|\\ +
-\\ +
-===== Climate data tool for the Southern Hemisphere ===== +
- +
-|Some PHPP calculations are based on the assumption that the building under consideration is located in the Northern HemisphereThe PHPP can also be used for locations in the Southern Hemispherebut a specific approach described in the PHPP manual must be adopted for this purpose. \\ [[planning:calculating_energy_efficiency:phpp_-_the_passive_house_planning_package:climate_data_tool_for_the_southern_hemisphere|Read more / Use the climate data tool for the Southern Hemisphere]]|{{:picopen:klimadatentool_suedhalbkugel.jpg?700}}|\\ +

- +
-===== Lift energy demand ===== +
- +
-|The Excel tool supports the planner  to assess the energy demand of liftsfor example, in the early planning stage. A detailed determination of the energy requirement is also possible. The assessment follows the calculations presented in VDI 4707 2009-3.  \\ [[planning:lift_energy_demand|Read more / Use the lift energy demand tool]]|||\\ +
