    I'm hoping someone can help me out with some tips on using Ecotect to model Passivhaus performance as I only have access to Ecotect rather than PHPP.

    I'm currently working on an MSc dissertation and am using Ecotect to try to model some different 'bio-renewable' building fabric options in housing design to Passivhaus/AECB Silver standard.

    To test and calibrate the software, I've modelled an existing passivhaus and am getting an annual heating load calculation of approximately six times the actual known energy consumption.

    Has anybody else tried to model Passivhaus design using Ecotect and are there any specific tips or settings required in the Zone Management?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    What a great and painstaking reply from Adesk – wish my chosen Cad provider could or would express themselves so well.
