550 Seventh Ave., 10th Floor, New York, NY 10018

February 16, 2017

This is the first of a 3-part series about passive house standards. We will start by exploring the development of the climate-specific PHIUS+ 2015 standard developed by the Passive House Institute US (PHIUS). This webinar will generally review how to achieve certification for new and existing buildings. Additionally, this will include an overview and demo of the WUFI® Passive energy modeling software, which is used for project design and optimization, as well as for demonstrating compliance with the PHIUS+ 2015 standard. WUFI Passive is a powerful user-friendly passive building energy modeling software tool developed by Fraunhofer IBP that is uniquely suited to the North American market.
