Passive House Planning Package – a tried and tested planning tool

The PHPP based on Excel was introduced for the first time in 1998 and has been continually further developed ever since. Calculation sheets for space heating balances (annual and monthly methods), and for heat distribution and supply as well as for the electricity and primary energy demand, constitute the main features of this tool. Essential modules were successively supplemented for the practical planning of energy efficiency projects throughout the world, including the calculation of characteristic values of windows, shading, heating load and summer behaviour, cooling and dehumidification demand, ventilation for large objects and non-residential buildings, taking into account of renewable energy sources, and EnerPHit certification (retrofitting of existing buildings). The PHPP is continually being validated and extended on the basis of measured values and new research findings.

In the context of accompanying scientific research in several objects, measured results were compared with the calculated results. In the process, a high correlation could be demonstrated between the demand calculated using the PHPP and the consumption ascertained through scientific monitoring projects. With careful planning of building efficiency, there will be no performance gaps.

New features in the Passive House Planning Package version 9 (2015)

New and improved calculation methods have been used in the new version of the PHPP. In addition, input areas, calculation worksheets and the manual have been reorganised and restructured in many places. The interface provided as a macro and text file for the PHPP has been developed further and improved.

In general, the following changes have been made to the PHPP 9:

File format

The PHPP 9 will appear in the now commonly used Excel format *.xlsx for the first time. The PHPP 9 is no longer compatible with the previous Excel file format *.xls or with Excel 2003.


Three new worksheets have been added: Variants, Comparison and Check. The worksheet PE Value has been replaced by the worksheet PER.

Drop-down lists

The input values in the drop-down menus introduced in PHPP 8 are now completely based on numbers or IDs which are independent of the language used in the PHPP. Among other things, this allows error-free data exchange between different translations of the PHPP.

Input assistance

In order to facilitate input, there is a new structure of row-by-row Error messages and Warnings (red+blue writing) at the right edge of all worksheets, as well as additional assistance and instructions in the worksheet Check.

Header row

The header row of all calculation worksheets has been standardised. The current results of the PHPP calculation can be seen here at any time.

Columns for variants

In each calculation worksheet there are columns on the far left (these may be hidden) in which it can be specified which parameters are used in the worksheet.


designPH has been developed further and is now also available for 3D data input.

The following worksheets have been completely restructured or amended:


Input of general project data has been redesigned.

Input of general project data has been redesigned and expanded.

Assessment according to the PER method and the resultant categories Passive House Planning Package 9 has been added to the worksheet Verification.

Internationally applicable criteria are now available for verification of EnerPHit retrofits.

Internal heat gains of residential buildings are adopted depending on building size, they are higher in the case of smaller dwelling units.

The criteria for the cooling demand and the cooling load have been reviewed and are now also applicable for non-residential buildings with higher internal loads. Frequency of overheating and excessively high humidity now represent relevant criteria for verification.


This worksheet allows input of design variants or refurbishment steps. The results of each variant are calculated and displayed in parallel in the upper part of the worksheet. Input of variant parameters can be done in a differentiated manner and according to the components of the building which are group according to different aspects of buildings, combining several individual data inputs.

NEW: Comparison

The energy demand and the cost-effectiveness of two design variants can be compared in the worksheet Comparison. In doing so, it can be chosen whether this comparison considers the entire building or just a specific component of the building.

NEW: Check

As mentioned before, an overview of Error messages is provided here so that it is immediately clear where your PHPP calculation needs to be adapted or improved. In addition, plausibility warnings make it possible to find critical points in the project planning or input and rework these if necessary.


This worksheet has been redesigned; the information available here is automatically generated by the PHPP calculation to a large extent.


Selection of the climate data sets has been restructured. Quality approved climate data sets for certification are identified by a specific ID number. The climate data sets have been supplemented with information about the regional availability of renewable energy sources (PER factors). A secondary calculation allows the search for the geographically nearest climate data sets stored in the PHPP.


The input of U-values has been supplemented with automatic adoption of heat transfer resistances in accordance to information about the building component and the heat transfer situation.


The selection of U-values of the building components has been restructured so that U-values as well as thermal bridges of certified wall, construction or floor slab systems can be selected. For verification of Passive House buildings and EnerPHit retrofits, building components for which exemptions apply can be identified. For building components and thermal bridges, rating of critical levels of Passive House Planning Package 9 thermal protection with reference to comfort or structural integrity is shown through coloured indicators.


This worksheet has been supplemented with pre-entered thermal bridges of certified connection details, characteristic values of entrance doors and shower drain-water heat recovery systems.


Rating of thermal comfort provides information about compliance with the comfort criteria of all windows for the heating case. The energy balance of transmission heat losses and solar gains of windows during the heating period are now presented in graphical form, differentiated according to the points of the compass.


The frequency of use of temporary shading in summer is automatically calculated, the user only has to enter the reduction factor for completely closed shading elements.


In principle, a distinction can now be made between pre-defined window ventilation, a purely exhaust air system and a ventilation system with heat recovery.


This worksheet has been restructured and improved. Input is now possible for 5 distribution pipes including their conductances within and outside of the building envelope. Additionally, entry of cooling distribution pipes has been added. The requirement for domestic hot water for showers and for other uses is now entered separately and can be determined in detail using a secondary calculation. Heat recovery systems can be entered for hot drain-water from showers. Storage losses can be estimated by entering data for several storage tanks. Input of storage tanks for the worksheets HP and SolarDHW has been combined in this worksheet.


Selection of storage tanks now takes place in the worksheet DHW+Distribution instead. The system-specific PER factors are determined in this worksheet.


5 different PV systems can now be entered. The alignment of the areas can be adopted automatically by allocating a PV area to building envelope areas.


An average lighting efficiency is entered instead of the share of energy efficient lighting.


This worksheet replaces the previous worksheet PE Value. The worksheet allows input of a primary and secondary heat generator and the coverage for heating and domestic hot water. Besides showing the final energy demand for heating, cooling, domestic hot water and household electricity, dependent on the energy source, the effective PER factors are determined by calculating them Passive House Planning Package 9 together with a biomass budget, and the PER specific value for the building. Alternatively, the PE specific value and the CO2-equivalent emissions of the building are also determined depending on PE factor profiles that are to be chosen and which take into account the nationally or regionally differing specific values, which can be entered by the user if required.


Input of storage tank data now takes place in the worksheet DHW+Distribution instead.

District Heating

Determination of the PER factors for district heating based on the degree of efficiency of the heating network and CHP plants.


In the worksheet Data, different PE factor profiles are implemented which must be selected in the PER worksheet for determining the PE specific value in accordance with the conventional PE value method. Individual PE value profiles can also be entered in the case of deviating national or regional specific values.

In addition, the PHPP 9 contains four additional tools (separate Excel files):

PHPP Tools

The following tools have been combined in an external file:

Import/Export interface

Import from PHPP8

Profile settings

Insertion of additional rows


Calculation sheet for determination of profitability of energy efficiency measures for buildings. This worksheet can be directly linked with the worksheet Variants so that the calculation results in the PHPP are available on a column by column basis for different variants.
