Dataset STEE STW
The data presented in this article refer to the environmental impact of the most popular construction systems in Andean regions throughout the last four decades analyzed in the related research article “The evolution of embodied energy in Andean residential buildings. Methodology applied to Cuenca-Ecuador” . For this, two parameters have been obtained: the Specific Total Embodied Energy (STEE) and the Specific Total Weight (STW). STEE refers to the Total Embodied Energy of the building, material or component correlated to its total floor area. STW refers to the total weight of the building, material or component correlated to its total floor area. These two parameters have been calculated from forty residential buildings in Cuenca-Ecuador in four different periods: P1: 1980-1990, P2: 1991-2000, P3: 2001-2010, and P4: 2011-2020, which means ten samples from every period. Figures 1-4 show the predominant types of construction systems found in every period.
