Reportlinker.com has released a new market research report, titled “Energy Efficiency Retrofits for Commercial and Public Buildings.
The need to optimize energy use was raised by many sections. The primary reason was to minimize energy costs to sustain the buildings. Another important reason was to lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and carbon footprints, so that the structure could obtain the recognition of being healthy and friendly to the environment. Yet another reason was to hold on to existing residents and also to gain a better foothold in the ambitious construction sector. Due to any or all these reasons, the manufacture of retrofits that increase energy competency has picked up in a big way. The final outcome would be beneficial to various parties such as residents, businesses, home owners and society to name a few.
The drive of the government and the zeal of the buyers push the demand of owners of older buildings who would like to go for the optimization of the facilities in their structure with the object of lowering energy costs. This demand is being catered by various novel products available in the market in sectors such as heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) fittings, lighting, insulation, windows, etc. Experts in the business warn that for optimal retrofit by way of cost and convenience, each building or project has to be catered to with its particular specifications in mind.
The Pike Research report classifies the findings for energy efficiency retrofit of buildings into eight building categories and eight service and product categories. Many partakers in the industry were investigated and energy efficiency retrofit earnings were estimated globally for many years to come.
