Getting to Nearly-Zero Energy Buildings: Ambitious Targets, Modest Progress

March 31, 2013 | State of the Market Report

As global awareness of the impact of building energy consumption on climate change has increased, a number of countries have announced supportive policy measures and mandates for transitioning all new construction to nearly-zero energy. We have surveyed 391 net-zero energy building projects and identified key enabling technologies for both energy conservation and on-site renewable energy generation. In this report we examine the drivers behind the new construction market for nearly-zero and net-zero energy buildings and project the market size over the next five years for building envelope materials in such buildings.
