About this book

Introduction

This doctoral dissertation presents a model to evaluate trade-offs between the energetic, economic, and environmental lifecycle performance of building projects. The model is explained so as to be replicable. The model is then applied for decision-making on different strategies for existing buildings in Germany. Results from the case-study show that current state-of-the-art building strategies considerably increase the risk of missing climate change mitigation targets in exchange to a relatively small economic improvement over innovative building strategies.
