Abstract: Embodied energy(E.E) is the total amount of energy that is required in the production of a material which include all the processes, from the mining and processing of natural resources to manufacturing, transport and product delivery and this helps in choice of materials and construction methods, to maximize the energy efficiency of a building during its operation. The E.E. in products and energy conservancy are the ecological features included in eco-labelling schemes. Embodied energy in materials is a significant aspect in GB rating systems. This paper discusses the influence of different construction units on the E.E. of the structure.
Keywords: Embodied energy (E.E), Buildings, Cement, Steel and Brick.
Scope of the Article: Building Energy
