This paper presents a road-map for research and technology development priorities for future thermal insulation materials, products and holistic solutions. The objective was to identify the RTD topics, current, emerging and promising technologies and materials that can support the development towards energy and resource efficient targets. The study was focused on Finnish market perspective. The study included state-of-the-art, a patent search, interviews of building sector professionals. The interviews revealed the expectations, barriers, trends and hypes that are related to the energy efficient building envelope applications. This paper presents the methodologies and part of the findings of the project.
