Embodied Energy and Carbon Storage in Buildings
Wednesday 9th October 12:00-17:00
With buildings, we have for a long time focused solely on energy consumption, not on embodied energy – meaning the energy that is used to extract and produce materials and construct our buildings. But recent research show that today the embodied energy actually equals or even surpasses the total energy use in the building’s entire lifespan.
For the building industry to take responsibility for a cost-effective climate mitigation, we need to understand that climate-friendly buildings are also about material awareness, minimizing the building materials carbon footprint, carbon storage by building in fx. wood – which now can be used for almost all sorts of buildings – and conscious circular design and recycling of buildings and materials.
With this conference, we want to inspire the building industry, advisers, contractors, private builders and professional clients, to build the climate-friendly buildings of tomorrow, today.
