Ful­ly Oc­cu­pied Mul­ti­fa­mi­ly PH Buil­dings: How Are They Per­for­ming and What Ha­ve We Le­ar­ned?

The presenters have been as­so­ci­ated with the design and com­ple­tion of dozens of Pass­ive House build­ings. In this present­a­tion, we will provide the de­tails of at least twelve build­ings that have been in op­er­a­tion for at least one year, share what we have learned, and dis­cuss how they are per­form­ing.

UBC Evol­ve: An Aca­de­mic Le­ar­ning Tool for Pas­si­ve Hou­se

Evol­ve is an on-cam­pus mul­ti-fa­mi­ly buil­ding that de­mons­tra­tes the ach­ie­ve­ment of high­per­for­man­ce out­co­mes through in­te­gra­ted pas­si­ve and ac­ti­ve stra­te­gies. The pro­ject is a lear­ning tool in the aca­de­mic and in­dus­try set­ting and will in­form how we de­sign and li­ve in the fu­ture.

Meas­ured out­put of the first res­id­en­tial build­ing that was cer­ti­fied ac­cord­ing to the Pass­ive House Stand­ard 

This PH buil­ding ope­ra­tes pro­per­ly in the cold cli­ma­tic re­gi­on and shows gre­at en­er­gy-sa­ving po­ten­ti­al, mean­whi­le, it al­so pro­vi­des a com­for­ta­ble in­door en­vi­ron­ment. The SHD is on­ly 13.7% of lo­cal con­ven­tio­nal GB buil­dings, re­sul­ting in 86.3% en­er­gy sa­vings. The to­tal si­te en­er­gy con­sump­ti­on for the who­le buil­ding is on­ly 30.8% of the GB buil­ding. So, PH tech­no­lo­gies can be wi­de­ly pro­mo­ted in cold cli­ma­te zo­ne in Chi­na.
