|Published: October 30, 2019||Content info: 16 Pages||
Traditionally, home builders have seen energy technologies as a sunk cost needed to comply with customer needs or, in the best case, as luxury items to add to the perceived value of a property. However, a combination of policies reducing the environmental footprint of housing, promoting technology development, and changing customer behavior in favor of sustainable products is driving the integration of new energy technologies in new build residential developments.
Decarbonization of the residential sector is critical, however, until recently, decarbonization has been achieved mostly through energy efficiency improvements. Alternatives, such as green electricity procurement, depended on a utility's decision to offer the solution to the customer. Distributed energy resources (DER) have changed that; consumers can now generate their own electricity.
This Navigant Research Strategy Insight report discusses how these trends affect new home construction and how regulators, homebuilders, energy suppliers, and OEMs can together address residential energy needs with solutions that go beyond a single home installation. Stakeholders can adopt new technologies and business models to ensure new builds meet the highest environmental criteria while bringing value to both the homeowner and the energy ecosystem. The study focuses on the following emerging strategies: self-consumption, landlord to tenant energy services, and energy communities. It also looks at case studies that highlight successful approaches and barriers encountered by energy players employing these strategies.
