Building typologies have proved to be a useful instrument for an in-depth understanding of the energy performance of certain building types and categories. In the framework of the IEE project TABULA, residential building typologies have been developed for 13 European countries following a common methodological structure. Each national typology consists of a classification scheme grouping buildings according to their size, age and further energy-relevant parameters, and a set of exemplary buildings representing the respective building types [IWU 2012a].

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 have shown that these two energy demands can represent more than half of the life cycle energy over 50 years.
