The energy saving potential of historic buildings is great. Barriers such as uncertain investments and long repayment periods can, however, hamper energy renovation of buildings. RIBuild develops a tool for life cycle assessment (LCA) and assessment of life cycle costs (LCC). This tool allows probability based LCA and LCC of energy renovation of buildings taking the input uncertainty into account. The user can examine cost and environmental benefits of different design solutions, analyzing the uncertainties and risks.
The tool will be available at the end of 2019 on RIBuild's website.
Please watch the video below to learn about the upcoming tool - and feel free to share with your professional network.
RIBuild develops thorough guidelines for professional practitioners on how to install internal thermal insulation in historic buildings in a moisture-safe way. The final guidelines will be published at the end of 2019.
