Abstract

•Nowadays, Spanish regulations consider only some aspects of a building life cycle for energy certifications•To select the right materials is necessary to take into account the whole value chain on the construction process•In complete LCA of the enclosures, the building use stage is the most relevant. It represents about the 75% of all impacts.•In the complete LCA, by incorporating the use scenario, it can be identified the optimal composition to minimize the impacts.•The proposed methodology can establish scientific base for future regulations in energy specifications for buildings.
