Article
Full-text available
Considering the nearly zero energy building (nZEB) and the increased measures for the improvement of the energy efficiency, the international literature indicates an extended use of specialized materials and technical installations. An increase in the embodied energy follows that use, with a final share between 74% and 100% in the total life cycle...
Article
This literature review addresses the Life Cycle Energy Analysis (LCEA) of residential buildings. As the fluctuation in the choice of functional units, boundaries of the system, life cycle inventory (LCI) methods, metrics and impact indicators complicated the potential comparability, the guidelines of Product Category Rule (PCR) 2014:02 for building...
Article
Full-text available
Towards the EPBD recast 2010/31/EU and the nearly zero energy building (nZEB), this review addresses the whole life cycle energy analysis of residential buildings. Life Cycle Energy Analysis (LCEA) of 90 case studies of residential buildings is evaluated with a specific focus on the normalization procedure that follows the principles of Product Cat...
Article
Climatic change has been one of the most important issues that occupies the scientific community around the world for many years now and affects economic, environmental and social policies. A continuous effort is made in order to manage and reduce the demand and consumption of both energy and materials, with the further goal of reducing environment...
Article
Full-text available
According to the European 2012/31/EE Directive all new buildings until 31/12/2020 and all new buildings occupied by public authorities until 31/12/2018 should be buildings with nearly zero energy consumption. Many countries of the European Union have established legislation with provisions for the energy performance of the buildings with a further...
Article
Full-text available
Although modern prefabricated buildings may offer many advantages, such as a significant reduction in cost and time, improved quality and accuracy in manufacture, easy dismantle and reuse of its components, etc., they have not gained the attention they deserve in the construction market yet. In this paper, a holistic approach for the formation of p...
Article
Full-text available
The paper concerns the development of an innovative building module with advanced thermophysical and mechanical properties that will be used in constructing sustainable prefabricated buildings with high structural, hygrothermal, energy, acoustic, fire and environmental performance at the minimum possible time and cost. In this paper, the configurat...
Article
Towards the zero energy and emission future, near Zero Energy Buildings (nZEBs) lead the path for the building construction sector. European legislation provides normative provisions for the definition of nZEBs and their cost-optimal levels within the context of EPBD recast and Delegated Regulation No.244 (2012). However, that same framework unilat...
Article
Full-text available
This paper presents the primary findings of a research project, aiming to introduce an innovative building module with improved thermophysical and mechanical properties that will serve as a bearing element and/or as an internal partition wall in prefabricated residential buildings. This new building module will comply with current requirements as r...
Article
Double-skin facades (DSFs) are a technology that lies behind innovative energy efficient facade systems. While it provides a potential for high energy efficient buildings, other important parameters, like point thermal bridge problems, are in most cases overlooked. The aim of this study is to investigate the magnitude of this approach and the effec...
Conference Paper
On the way to achieve the demanding energy efficiency targets that adopt and even surpass the requirements of near Zero Energy Buildings, numerous techniques and systems have been proposed and constructed, aiming not only at improving the thermophysical characteristics of the building envelope, but even convert it to a smart, adaptive or energetic,...
Article
Towards zero emission and zero energy buildings, literature reviews highlight the importance of embodied energy and embodied carbon emissions. The current review analyses 95 case studies of residential buildings, as an effort to identify the range of embodied carbon emissions and the correlation between the share of embodied energy and carbon for d...
