Building a Green 21st Century: Tracking Venture Investments in Green Buildings to Uncover New Opportunities
“Green buildings” have emerged at the nexus of energy security, environmental sustainability, and corporate social responsibility as critical investments in the 21st Century. According to new tracking figures from Lux Research, venture capitalists have invested $4.06 billion green building developers since the year 2000: the companies behind the equipment, systems, services, and materials that improve the energy efficiency of buildings and homes. Developers like Tridium, Encelium Technologies, and SAGE Electrochromics have grown their businesses from seed-stage rounds to hugely successful exits and acquisitions by giants, and this early wave promises to keep growing. However, opportunities for some current-generation technology and material developers are nearly gone, and exit prospects for their investors are not promising. This research covers opportunities in integrated design, on-site generation, energy services, advanced building envelope, and low-carbon cement and concrete, technology areas that wise investors should pursue.

Energy Efficient Buildings: Asia Pacific
ESCO Market Dynamics, Performance Contracting, Energy Efficiency Retrofits, Green Building Certifications, Financing Structures, Market Analysis and Forecasts
Driven in large part by rapid economic growth in Southeast Asia, India, and China, energy demand in the Asia Pacific region is rising quickly, and Asian governments and industry leaders are simultaneously highly focused on creating a more sustainable and energy-efficient economy. These goals have intensified attention on the building sector, one of the primary sources of energy consumption. These and other macro trends have driven energy-efficient commercial buildings to become an increasingly larger priority for companies within the region.
In response to heightened demand, energy service companies (ESCOs) in Asia Pacific are providing energy-saving systems and services that are adapted to their customers’ business facilities and building spaces. Over the past several years, performance contracting has become a more and more common business model to assist building owners and managers in optimizing energy use in existing buildings. At the same time, builders within the region have quickly adopted green building certification programs and other tools for improving the efficiency and mitigating the environmental impacts of commercial buildings.
This market research report analyzes the issues and opportunities in energy efficiency solutions for commercial buildings in the Asia Pacific region.

Policy’s Dramatic Impact on Green Buildings: The Global Hotspots
Buildings consume the majority of the world’s energy and are responsible for a majority of manmade carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Energy security, environmental, and livability concerns are driving governments across the world to adopt policy measures promoting green buildings. Policy measures, along with the ability to pay, payback periods, and addressable market size, should determine a firm’s decision on which countries to invest precious market development funds in. This report, examines 21 countries on the Lux Nations Ranking Chart to project how the unique policy drivers in each country create an opportunity for specific green-building technologies.

Green Building Certification Programs – Global Certification Programs for New and Existing Buildings in the Commercial and Residential Sectors
Green building certification programs such as LEED and BREEAM provide third-party assessment of green buildings. Although green building awareness has risen dramatically in the past several years, green building is still in its nascent stages in many markets. As developed countries and regions look to certify not only much of their new construction but their existing building stocks as well, developing countries such as China and India are quickly adapting green building certification to their markets for new construction. New research available from Global Information Inc forecasts that green building certification programs will certify a cumulative 53 billion net square feet of floorspace by 2020.
This report analyzes the current market and regulatory environment around green building certification programs and provides forecasts for the growth of this industry. The report includes an in-depth examination of green building drivers, barriers, and likely shifts in the underlying construction market.
