But embodied energy
has increased over the same period.
The organization enables early-stage applied research and development of technologies that could dramatically reduce the embodied energy
and carbon emissions associated with industrial-scale materials production and processing.
Besides offering a fashionably alternative work environment to young businesses and entrepreneurs, the Tech Park's shipping containers meet Masdar City's strict sustainability standards, having significantly lower embodied energy
costs than regular offices.
While we have been seriously looking into the use of 'green' materials and technology, the sustainable future belongs to low 'embodied energy
The implications of the Phase one results are driving Phase II of the project, and can ultimately lead to a reduction in cost for carbon fibre composite structures, making them more amenable for adoption in the automotive and other high volume industries, reduce embodied energy
, and can directly lead to a creation of jobs in the industry.
The residence is said to demonstrate Masdar's commitment to the three pillars of social, economic and environmental sustainability and is designed to promote biodiversity, while minimising the use of high embodied energy

Through rich illustrations, "Empire, State & Building" deftly tracks all the building material that have passed through this parcel or remain in its geographic and ecological dynamics: spatially (in terms of their geographic material footprints and industrial processes) and quantitatively (in terms of embodied energy
, embodied carbon, and energy flow).
Meanwhile widely used thermal insulation materials like mineral wool, expanded polystyrene and polyurethane foams have relatively high level of embodied energy
and complicated process of reuse.
Reflective pavement can go a long way toward reducing the urban heat island effect, but the embodied energy
and emissions in some materials may present unexpected drawbacks, according to new research from the DOE's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
PVC pipe is shown to have fewer environmental impacts from a life-cycle and carbon footprint perspective when compared to alternative materials, including lower embodied energy
, lower use-phase energy, and longer life attributes.
