Measure the Embodied Energy in Building Materials: An Eco-Sustainable Approach for Construction

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The paper has highlighted the complexity of the embodied energy measurement even if this comes with the understanding that it increasingly is a fundamental aspect of studies on energy saving in buildings. The TC 350 standards have been published, defining a harmonized methodology to assess the environmental performance and the costs of the life cycle of buildings. It represents an important tool, even if in practice it has several limits.
