    Default Embodied CO2 accouting in Revit

    Here's my project: Using Revit to measure the embodied energy, in terms of CO2, of a building. Although my firm usually analyzes a building's operational energy, we haven't yet studied the embodied energy of a building's materials.

    The Revit prep work--creating some shared parameters for materials, organizing schedules and material takeoffs--is straight forward. But what source do we use for our material data? I realize that measuring energy/carbon flows is a nebulous, complex thing, which means this can only be a rough estimate. So far, I've found these sites:

    Sourcemap http://www.sourcemap.org/
    EC LCA Tools http://lca.jrc.ec.europa.eu/lcainfoh...tCategories.vm
    BFRL’s BEES Software http://www.bfrl.nist.gov/oae/software/bees/bees.html
    Pharos Project (in development) http://www.pharosproject.net/
    BLDG 2.0 (in development) http://www.case-inc.com/content/bldg...gy-performance

    Has anyone done research on this? Any advice is appreciated!

    Do you think Autodesk would include this sort of material information in future releases?
