Uncovering Attractive Innovations in HVAC Amidst Evolutionary Growth

Buildings consume 38% of primary energy in the developed world, of which heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) account for roughly 13%. As such, increasing concerns over costs, resource scarcity, and climate change are driving interest in improving HVAC efficiency. In this report, we examine the complex landscape of HVAC technologies and rank established and emerging technologies to identify opportunities with true growth potential. We found that while technology development in the HVAC sector is more or less evolutionary, disruptive technologies exist whose implemenation can reduce building energy consumption significantly.
