Life cycle water, energy and cost analysis of multiple water harvesting and management measures for apartment buildings in a Mediterranean climate

Local water harvesting, demand reduction and wastewater treatment measures at a building scale can help manage water resources around the Mediterranean.   This study conducts a life cycle water, energy and cost analysis of rainwater and condensate...

The relationship between house size and life cycle energy demand: Implications for energy efficiency regulations for buildings

House size has significantly increased over the recent decades in many countries. Larger houses often have a higher life cycle energy demand due to their increased use of materials and larger area to heat, cool and light. Yet, most energy efficiency...

Evaluating the life cycle energy benefits of energy efficiency regulations for buildings

Energy efficiency regulations for buildings often focus solely on operational and thermal energy demands. Increasing a building׳s thermal energy efficiency is most often undertaken by increasing insulation thickness and installing high performance...

Cost effective energy reduction measures in Lebanese apartment building

Life cycle energy and cost analysis of embodied, operational and user-transport energy reduction measures for residential buildings Few studies have evaluated the overall life cycle energy demand of residential buildings, including...

Multi-scale life cycle energy analysis of a suburban neighbourhood in Melbourne, Australia

Many cities are likely to expand in the coming decades and this expansion will probably include low-density neighbourhoods. There is an increasing pressure on cities worldwide to accommodate an increasing population. It is therefore crucial to...

Reducing the total life cycle energy demand of recent residential buildings in Lebanon

Buildings require a substantive amount of energy for their operation. Recent studies have found that indirect requirements, such as the embodied energy associated with their construction and the transport-related energy of their users can be even...

A multi-scale life-cycle energy and greenhouse-gas emissions analysis model for residential buildings

Current assessments of residential building energy demand focus mainly on their operational aspect, notably in terms of space heating and cooling. The embodied energy of buildings and the transport energy consumption of their occupants are typically...
Publication

Towards a comprehensive life cycle energy analysis framework for residential buildings

Current assessments of residential building energy demand focus mainly on operational energy, notably in thermal terms. The embodied energy of buildings and the transport energy consumption of their users are typically overlooked. Recent studies...

A comprehensive assessment of the life cycle energy demand of passive houses

Certifications such as the Passive House aim to reduce the final space heating energy demand of residential buildings. The latter are responsible for a significant share of final energy consumption in Europe of which nearly 70% is associated with...
