Zero Net Energy Homes

Building Technologies, Trends, and Regulations for Zero Net Energy in the Residential Sector: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts

Buildings are a major priority for global policymakers and regulators addressing energy, carbon emissions, and sustainability concerns. The built environment presents a massive opportunity for savings across each trend, as buildings represent a significant amount of consumption across the globe, with figures ranging from 20%-70% of energy or emissions consumption depending on the country. Residential buildings can be a significant portion of existing building stock and planned new construction for many global regions. Stakeholders are exploring solutions for tackling challenges in the residential sector.

One solution for mitigating energy consumption in the residential sector is the zero net energy home (ZNEH), which represents a technology movement for offsetting a home’s consumption with renewable energy production. While this trend is nascent and still emerging, it is gaining popularity in new construction and multifamily buildings, where efficiency in building planning and economies of scale make it a cost-effective option for increasing building efficiencies. The ZNEH market is not likely to see explosive growth, but ZNE can be a means to an end in achieving many sustainability goals. Navigant Research anticipates a bright future for ZNEHs.

This Navigant Research report analyzes the global market for ZNEHs. It focuses on markets for new construction and renovations, multifamily and single-family housing types, and revenue associated with ZNE-enabling technologies. The study provides an analysis of key market drivers, policies, and trends, contrasting fundamental challenges and technology issues. Global market forecasts quantifying household growth and revenue extend through 2028.
