PHPP is a powerful building energy modelling that provides accurate predictions of building performance. However, modelling multiple design options in PHPP can be tricky and/or time consuming. In PHPPv9, the Passive House Institute introduced the Variants worksheet to help address this issue. The Variants worksheet is a power tool that allows simultaneous modelling of multiple design options. This 2 week online course will explore how the Variants tool can be set up and used to achieve this and other objectives. Exercises will reinforce the learning.
The course is structured into 4 lectures over the course of 2 weeks. You are invited to complete the course at your own pace.
Access to the online platform will begin upon enrollment and will end 2 weeks after, however, all student resources including lecture slides will be available for download for future reference. The course is currently open for continuous enrollment.

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
