Entries shall be clustered and compared using the 7 PHI climate zones identified here. This means that size and building type does not matter, but location and climate region does. Projects will be assessed based on how they respond to local climate conditions or have used the flexibility of the Passive House standard to creatively deliver a climate-specific response. Entries shall be additionally judged using these sub-categories:
- Completed New Passive House Buildings
- Completed EnerPHit retrofits.
- Unbuilt or incomplete new build or EnerPHit
- Passive House Assembly or Installation Detail (must be part of a submitted project.)
