Inventory of Carbon and Energy (ICE)

The embodied energy and carbon of over 200 materials was benchmarked and summarised into the Inventory of Carbon & Energy (ICE). ICE has been used to assess the energy and carbon impact of constructing new buildings in both the domestic and non-domestic building sectors.

ASBP understands that the ICE database will soon find a new home with increased support and tighter governance....but will it remain free?... we very much hope so as this is a great resource. Craig Jones, co author, is speaking at our event in Bristol June 19th 2013 from13.30, co-hosted with Green Register at the CREATE centre. Other speakers Include Craig White.

This is a great starting point for anyone looking to calculate the embodied carbon of their construction project. Remember that these values are essentially cradle to gate values so you need to add on other aspects such as transport, construction and end of life.

A very useful dataset of a range of building materials. Good transparency on sources and reliability of data. Helpful to those calculating embodied energy and carbon of either new builds or retrofits from scratch.
