Bharatbook added a new report on "Energy Efficient Homes" which provides market issues and demand drivers for energy efficient products and services for residential homes.
Online PR News – 05-February-2010 – – Energy Efficient Homes
Residential Energy Efficiency Retrofits, Green Building Techniques and Certification, Home Energy Audits, Utility and Government Energy Efficiency Programs, and Efficient Appliances and Systems
Compared to the commercial real estate market, the residential market for energy efficient products and services is in its infancy. Demand for these products and services has increased significantly over the past few years due to a rise in fuel and energy prices, improved awareness and participation in green home certification programs, and through government support. Government programs such as the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act have provided incentives for energy efficient products, services, and retrofits, spurring growth in these sectors.

However, there is concern that the market for energy efficient products and services will be short-lived if government support ceases. Programs such as “Cash for Clunkers” (for appliances) and legislation like the Waxman-Markey bill are hoped to provide drivers for future growth in the residential energy efficiency market. Federal, state, and local governments will also play a significant role in increasing home energy efficiency codes and requirements, driving demand for home energy auditing and verification programs. As the U.S. housing stock continues to age and utility prices rise, there will be increasing opportunities for energy efficient products and services. The home improvement market is projected to grow slightly in 2010 with more significant growth occurring in 2011. This includes the installation of products to increase energy efficiency. Also, the development of a utility smart grid infrastructure will drive needs for smart appliances and meters to reduce energy usage.
This report examines the market for energy efficient products and services in the residential sector. The study analyzes market issues and demand drivers, including the effects of green certification programs, legislative and regulatory issues, incentives, and home financing programs. Additionally, we assess the new home and remodeling industries, home products and appliances, home energy evaluations, and utility services.
