I have a rather open question to the forum. Why is there no LCA-tool embedded in the Ladybug-package?
The reason I’m asking, is that I am given a trial lecture entitled " Digital design and fabrication: Challenges, Barriers, Opportunities in Design Practice and new Research Trajectories for the reduction of carbon footprints in buildings"
I’m not yet into this topic, but my PHD-topic is into parametric detailing and fabrication of timber structures. I’ve read about Ladybug tools several times, and have always assumed there was an implemented way of doing LCA using Ladybug.
From previous forum-posts, I have read that the main issue is that databases are not sufficiently open? Is that still the case? Or are there other barriers that prevents the building industry from having a proper tool for parametric LCA?
Happy for all answers!
