STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
The main goal of this study is to measure and forecast the market for various energy retrofit technologies for building applications. Secondary goals are to determine how the growth of public buildings and private commercial buildings is likely to affect building energy consumption in different regions of the world; to examine the various energy retrofit technologies and assess their emissions reduction potential; and to identify and assess emerging technologies that could compete with or replace existing technologies in use for these applications.
In addition, the report also examines the financing structures of the energy retrofit industry in different global regions. With an in-depth patent analysis, the report also seeks to highlight the emerging technologies that are likely to drive the energy retrofit industry.
REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
Several substantial, durable drivers are expanding the potential market for energy efficiency retrofits in buildings across the world. Chief among those is the rising global concern about the environment. Given the burgeoning increase in human activity and consequent increase in buildings of various types, energy consumption is likely to rise even further. Hence, there is a strong need for buildings to be environmentally clean and energy efficient. This infers that not only new buildings will have to conform to the new evolving standards, but also that there is a strong need for existing buildings to be energy efficient and clean. This potentially creates a strong opportunity for the various energy retrofit technologies, given their significant energy reduction potential.
This report is intended especially for engineering firms, architects, manufacturers of materials and other products used in energy retrofit technologies, entrepreneurs, investors, venture capitalists, and other readers with a need to know where the market for energy technologies is headed in the next 5 years. The report’s findings and conclusions should also be of interest to the energy research and policy communities.
SCOPE OF THE REPORT
The report covers the worldwide market for technologies used in the manufacture of energy retrofit technologies for building applications.
The study format includes the following major elements:
Executive summary Key enabling technologies for energy retrofit technologies for building applications, their commercial or developmental status Developments that will influence commercial prospects/demand for energy retrofit technologies Energy retrofit technology market projections through 2015 Key patents Government programs and policies in support of energy retrofit technology Technology vendor profiles
METHODOLOGY AND INFORMATION SOURCES
Both primary and secondary research methodologies were used in preparing this study. The findings and conclusions of this report are based on information gathered from producers and users of energy retrofit technologies as well as engineering firms, owners of buildings and architects, and government and academic research organizations. Interview data were combined with information gathered through an extensive review of secondary sources, such as trade publications, trade associations, company literature, and online databases, to produce the market projections contained in this report.
Market projections were developed for 2010 through 2015. These projections are based on a combination of a consensus among the primary contacts combined with our understanding of the key market drivers and their impact from a historical and analytical perspective.
The methodologies and assumptions used to develop the market projections in this report are discussed at length under the various types of hydrogen-related plants and equipment addressed. The report carefully documents data sources and assumptions. This way, readers can see how the market estimates were developed and, if they so desire, test the impact on the final numbers of changing various assumptions.
