Praxis will participate in 3 sessions at the Spanish Passivhaus Conference. We would love to see you and in Valencia!

Praxis is delivering three presentations at the Spanish Passivhaus Conference in Valencia

The 15th Spanish Passivhaus Conference takes place between November 29th and December 1st.

Don’t miss the one of the key conferences in energy efficient construction, which includes 2 hours of master classes, 11 hours of technical presentations, and 5 hours of practical sessions!

Spanish Passivhaus Conference in Valencia

From November 29th to December 1st, the fifteenth Passivhaus Conference will take place at the Valencia Conference Center. Organized by the Spanish Passivhaus Building Platform (PEP), this event has become a reference meeting point in the sector and one of the main forums for innovation in Passivhaus on the Iberian peninsula.

At Praxis we are very happy to be able to participate as speakers in three presentations. Oliver Style and Bega Clavero will make their interventions on November 29th and 30th. We’d love to see you in Valencia!

Surfing the (heat) wave: can I use the PHPP to size cooling equipment?

Passivhaus Conference Valencia | Praxis Resilient Buildings

Speaker: Oliver Sytle, CEO of Praxis. Passivhaus Certifier and Consultant

Date:November 29th, from 19:00h to 20:00h

It is estimated that by 2050, there will be 6 billion air conditioning units installed in the world. Global warming is causing ever more frequent heat waves, and with rising energy costs, it is crucial to optimize passive cooling strategies and correctly size cooling equipment. In this session, we will look at how to modify the boundary conditions of the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) to correctly size cooling equipment and achieve environmental comfort with minimal energy consumption.

Modelling of air-to-air heat pumps in the new PHPP version 10

Speaker: Oliver Sytle, CEO of Praxis. Passivhaus Certifier and Consultant

Date: November 30th, from 12:00h to 14:00h

The latest version of the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) program incorporates new functionalities and the possibility of modelling cooling equipment with far greater precision than in PHPP 9.

In this technical session, Oliver will explain the data entry requirements for modelling inverter air-air cooling equipment in the PHPP10, looking at the different operating modes (“normal mode”, “silent mode”, and “dehumidification mode”) and the Energy Efficiency Ratio at maximum and minimum power.

Eco Hub #Learnlife. Passivhaus educational modules for hot climates

Speaker: Bega Clavero, Chief Project Officer at Praxis. Passivhaus Tradesperson

Date: November 30th, from 15:45 to 17:20h

In a context where climatic conditions and air quality in Spanish educational centers are inadequate in 84% of the time, the creation of comfortable, adaptable, and healthy learning environments with good air quality and very high energy efficiency, suitable for warm climates, is a priority.

In this session, Bega Clavero will present Eco Hub, an educational module with Passivhaus Classic certification designed for warm climates with ex-situ construction techniques, designed and developed by Learnlife. The building is a learning centre, based on a scalable construction system that is adaptable to the needs of each institution, prefabricated and modular, removable and transportable to any other location, and built with low-emission and low embodied energy materials.
