One of the hottest trends in homebuilding and home ownership today is energy savings. Higher sustained energy costs (especially electrical), concerns about climate change and the arrival of the Millenials in the housing market have all contributed to a tsunami of energy-saving demand.
Homebuilders today have clear incentives to offer energy conservation features, whether through state mandates or consumer demand. That’s why this vital topic will be addressed in detail at the TecHome Builder Summit, being held March 4 – 6, 2014, in Austin, TX.
TecHome Builder Editor-in-Chief Steve Castle will moderate an expert panel exploring the ways builders can meet and profit from this growing consumer need and capitalize on this opportunity.
“No longer is energy savings an on-and-off trend,” Castle says. “Alternative energy generation and energy conservation technologies are in demand and here to stay. Electric utilities are instituting smart-grid programs to help even out their peak-load periods. And homebuilders are racing to produce affordable net-zero homes that produce all their own energy and contain the technologies to help homeowners achieve and maintain their energy goals.”
The Breakfast Research Presentation on March 5 will wake builders up to energy efficiency by revealing original research done by AE Ventures research arm, AE Analytics, and Summit partner BDX to uncover homebuyer interest levels and homebuilders’ current and planned offerings in this hot category.
The TecHome Builder Summit hosts technology decision makers from leading homebuilders for 2.5 days of high-level sessions on home technology planning, marketing, sales, design and production—as well as best practices sharing and high-quality interactions with leading vendors in the space.
