Besides a large sun roof that covers 100% of the electricity demand and a surplus of electrical energy is injected into the public electricity network. 76% of the hot water demand it is projected.

    The energy demand and consumption were determinedtrough PHPP software according to all Passivhaus requirements. Additionally tocalculate the Zero Energy balance a specific consumption profile was createdaccording to the expected Family activities and renewable energy systems wereintegrated in the design.
