districtPH – Tool for evaluating the potentials for energy savings at the city district level

Calculation tool to study retrofiting and development scenarios for city districts!

The districtPH calculation programme was developed at the Passive
House Institute in order to study different retrofitting scenarios for city
districts. Among other things, this programme takes into account the
• building types and construction year of existing building stock
• the actual heating energy demand of the existing buildings
• progression of the energy demand according to the retrofit scenarios
• PV and solar thermal energy systems as well as wind turbines
• district heating networks and CHP
• street lighting
• electromobility

The districtPH calculation programme will be available soon.

districtPH was developed within the EU-funded Sinfonia project.

This project has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement No 609019.
