Operational Energy

Thermal performance and operational energy savings over the life cycle of a building are critical aspects of design. The environmental impacts of buildings over their lifetimes are determined by several factors including materials, design, construction, use (i.e., energy consumption), and demolition. Depending on location, studies have shown emissions from building operation account for 88% – 98% of the life cycle global warming potential.
