Report on energy balance district tool

As part of the Sinfonia Work Package 4, the Passive House Institute developed a tool to assess and optimise city districts in terms of energy efficiency. The tool, called districtPH, enables the user to investigate, with reference to arbitrary performance indicators, the long-term consequences of planning decisions. This may include for instance an increase in the refurbishment rate, changes in the quality of refurbishments, construction or extension of district heating grids and creation of renewable energy. This reports presents the methodology used to build the tool, which description can be accessed at this link.
