A Study on Evaluation Methods for the Environmental Load Reduction Effects achieved Via Sustainable Building Technologies
A method to evaluate the environmental load reduction effects of energy saving when applying sustainable building technologies is presented. We analyze the methods proposed in existing environmental impact assessment guidelines of sustainable building technologies and suggest differentiated data collection scopes and system boundaries. Sustainable building technologies are categorized into new and renewable energy technology, high-performance Envelope technology, and high-efficiency equipment technology, and we propose evaluation methods for each.
