Abstract

The market for low energy buildings is developing fast in the Northern Europe. The objective of this study was to analyze the market of low energy buildings in the region by surveying key stakeholders about the issue. Two sets of surveys were conducted in Northern European countries: one questionnaire was aimed at individuals and families considering building a new house to find out their willingness to build a low energy house, and a second one at experts to map the barriers and drivers existing in the market. This paper presents preliminary findings for four participating countries. The study confirms that builders are generally interested in low energy buildings and that experts see growth in the market segment in the future. The continuing fast development of the industry can be expected with confidence if the present sentiment prevails
