The study “Potentials of Building with Wood” expands the data base on the availability of wood as a building material and carries out a review with regard to energy requirements and greenhouse gas potentials by comparing life cycle assessments for houses in solid and wood construction. To this end, the wood qualities required for different construction methods are first defined and the question of how great the potential of the nationally available wood and its regional distribution is - always on the assumption that an increase in the wood construction quota is not covered by importing wood. Competitions with other material or energetic uses of wood are also examined and whether cascading use can reduce this.
