Impact of CH2018 Climate Change Scenarios for Switzerland on today's Swiss building stock

A comparative study on the environmental impact of greenhouses: a probabilistic approach

The aim of this study is to investigate the most important drivers of environmental impacts and identify the influence of parameters on the uncertainty of the environmental impacts in various climate zones and future climate scenarios. We couple a …

Tracking Construction Material over Space and Time: Prospective and Geo-referenced Modeling of Building Stocks and Construction Material Flows

Construction material plays an increasingly important role in the environmental impacts of buildings. In order to investigate impacts of materials on a building level, we present a bottom‐up building stock model that uses three‐dimensional and …

A novel integrated framework to evaluate greenhouse energy demand and crop yield production

Greenhouses are complex systems that require considerable amounts of energy. In order to optimize their performance, it is necessary to reduce the amount of energy per unit of crop produced. This requires a combined assessment of greenhouse energy …

Big data GIS analysis for novel approaches in building stock modelling

GIS-based Decision Support System for Building Retrofit

Life cycle assessment of dynamic building integrated photovoltaics

Environmental Impact of Buildings---What Matters?

The goal of this study was to identify drivers of environmental impact and quantify their influence on the environmental performance of wooden and massive residential and office buildings. We performed a life cycle assessment and used thermal …

Influence of construction material choice and design parameters on greenhouse gas emissions of buildings

Wood has typically lower environmental impacts compared to other materials. However, it also has reduced capacity to store thermal energy, potentially causing increased operating energy demand. Here we investigate this trade-off between environmental …
