Commercial and residential buildings are poised to provide one of the most compelling market opportunities of the 21st century. With increasing demand from existing electronic devices as well as forthcoming technological innovations, including electric vehicles, property owners will need to make sure their buildings can meet their tenants’ energy demands.
There are many existing products and services for owners to choose from but many obstacles stand in the way of implementation and deployment. What are these obstacles? What technologies are available and can be implemented today? What innovations are forthcoming and how will they affect further deployment?
“In 2005, commercial and residential property owners spent over $300 billion on energy and are projected to spend close to $450 billion by 2025.”- The US Green Building Council
“Electricity is currently the world’s fastest-growing form of end-use energy.”- EIA
“Commercial and residential buildings account for 70% of the nation’s electricity use.”- NRDC
