This report addresses opportunities on a broad regional basis divided into three segments: the Americas; Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA); and the Asia-Pacific region (APAC). Regional forecasts will include breakouts by building type (i.e., commercial, government, residential), as well as new construction versus renovation and by technology investment area (i.e., heating, ventilation and air conditioning [HVAC], lighting, building materials, design and consulting and construction services). Important economic, environmental, regulatory, manufacturer and technological factors influencing demand are also discussed.
Topics specifically excluded from the study as considered beyond the scope of this report include energy sourcing and business opportunities not directly tied to ZNE buildings, including utilities, energy arbitrage and efficiency measures for non-ZNE implementations.
