Combining building thermal simulation methods and LCA methods

Frank Pedersen, Klaus Hansen, Kim Wittchen, Karl Grau, Kjeld Johnsen & Frank Pedersen
This paper describes recent efforts made by the Danish Building Research Institute regarding the integration of a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) method into a whole building hygro-thermal simulation tool. The motivation for the work is that the increased requirements to the energy performance of buildings (as expressed in EU Directive 2002/91/EC), may in the future be supplemented by requirements to the environmental impact of buildings. This can be seen by the fact that EU recently...
