Measuring Passive House
Ongoing data collection of completed projects is an essential part of Passive House’s development and ongoing evolution. The Passive House methodology is data based and science based.
Ongoing data collection has allowed the Passsivhaus Institut to optimize the PHPP and enhance it’s predictive power.
“Many years of monitoring the actual energy performance data of existing Passive Houses have allowed for the statistical evaluation of these measurements. The results confirm that energy performance predictions for passive houses hold true in practice and that the Passive House concept is absolutely reliable.” PHI
NYPH will encourage the collection and publication of utility bills of projects in the New York area as an essential learning tool. See project directories in future for such illustrations.
