Data set for "UK Passivhaus and the energy performance gap"



This is a data set of space heating demand from 97 certified Passivhaus homes in the UK . The dataset is used to compare measured space heating demand with the predicted space heating demand generated at design stage using Passive House Planning Package. This comparison was used to demonstrate there is no performance gap ( difference between predicted and measured energy use) in Passivhaus homes. This is of interest as many new and existing homes in the UK use much more energy than predicted.
This evidence has been used to add weight to the argument that the Passivhaus standard should become the norm for the UK.
