Scientific assessment in support of the materials roadmap enabling low carbon energy technologies
Energy efficient materials for buildings - Study
In the context of the SET-Plan road-mapping exercise on Materials, “Energy Efficient Materials for Buildings” have been identified as one of the challenging topics with potentials for relevant energy saving. The Experts have identified areas of possible improvements and decided to focus on reduction of i) Embodied Energy, ii) Energy in the Building Use, for some of the most important and energy-relevant building materials. This report not only summarises main conclusions from the single Experts reports, but also includes common agreed recommendations for future research on energy efficient... materials for buildings as discussed and defined during the Expert meeting (24/02/2011) and the Stakeholders meeting (31/03/2011). The Experts original reports are separately presented, as they include many detailed important information and suggestions. References are not included in this Summary Report, as they are widely addressed in single Experts report. The Reader should thus refer to single reports for literature.
