LCA Research Brief: Streamlined Energy Modeling of Residential Buildings

Streamlined energy modeling of residential buildings
June 9, 2014

The Attribute to Activity Model allows the efficient estimation of use-phase energy consumption based on early design parameters. Rather than requiring a fully developed building design and computationally expensive building energy simulations, this model can be used by designers to gain insight about the environmental effects of different options at a point when this insight has a greater capacity to affect the final building design.
