The science behind eTool – Life Cycle Assessment

Embodied Energy Calculations within Life Cycle Analysis of Residential Buildings

“As energy costs increase, controlling the cost of living will require reductions in energy demand. Furthermore, managing global greenhouse gas emissions from property development is of key importance for minimising climate change. Life Cycle energy analysis clearly identifies optimum strategies for reducing both energy demand and greenhouse gas emissions…”

In this informative paper, Rich explains the principles behind LCA in the built environment.

eTool Version 1 Release

In a world first, eTool will offer a FREE platform for comprehensive environmental life cycle assessment of buildings.

Catering for residential, commercial, infrastructure and development projects, eTool primarily aims to reduce carbon emmissions but will also offer LCA of costs and other environmental impacts. eTool would like to thank Phobos for their help building the eTool LCA software.
The web platform will allow proliferation of LCA concepts throughout the building industry (and hopefully further) which will do a world of good for Australia’s Green House Gas emissions.
