Study of the Energy Use Characteristics of Concrete Multi Family Dwelling Buildings and the Relevance for Economy and Environment

Öberg, Mats LU (2001) In Nordic Concrete Research 27(2). p.105-115
Abstract
Reduction of energy use in buildings is fundamental for

sustainable development. A computer program for the prediction

of energy use in buildings was assessed by comparisons with the

energy performance of existing buildings. The program was then

used to evaluate the energy saving characteristics of concrete such

as air tightness and heat capacity.

The impacts on global environmental aspects and life cycle costs

were examined. In a multi-family dwelling building a concrete

building structure can contribute to a reduction of the annual

requirement for space heating by up to 8%.
