Evaluating the performance of an EnerPHit building under different climates in Greece – A Digital Twin approach Athanasia Apostolopoulou, Carlos Jimenez-Bescos



This paper presents a critical evaluation of the performance of the first awarded EnerPHit building under the different climate zones of Greece following a digital twin approach. The thermal behavior and the relative humidity of the original building without active strategies have been numerically investigated for the four different climates. The results show that the Passive House design could be applied in all four climate zones in Greece with minimum updates in terms of insulation thickness, providing an avenue for mass prefabrication and application of the Passivhaus concept in Greece.
