I have only read part of this thread, so I don't know if it's been mentioned,  but I would have thought the best way to avoid solar gain with a passive house from windows is to make the decision at the design stage to have electric external blinds to certain windows, perhaps controlled by Loxone or maybe manually. This is by far the greatest source of overheating and it has got to be better avoiding it in the first place rather than then having the problem of dealing with it once it has occurred .

OK if allowable, and our preferred option, but the planners wouldn't countenance it.  They wouldn't even let us fit more traditional looking wooden shutters.
