Research Outline

Net-Zero Housing Renovation Companies

Goals

To provide an overview of the net-zero construction industry to help decide whether or not to venture into the net-zero housing space. The research will confirm;
  • The existence of construction or consulting businesses that aid individuals in renovating their homes to be net-zero (transition your house net-zero) or whether such companies exist only on the commercial construction scale.
  • Whether or not there are companies that recommend ways to make houses more net-zero.
An ideal response will feature;
  • Case studies or examples of existing companies that consult or operate in the net-zero housing and/or construction space.
  • Insight into what the process is for individuals to transform existing structures into net-zero instead of building net-zero from the ground up.
The research will exclude examples of large corporations building massive-scale projects as net-zero that are not on the personal housing level.

Early Findings

Data Availability

  • The initial round of research indicates that data on construction or consulting businesses that aid individuals in renovating their homes to be net-zero is available in the public domain

Net-Zero Housing Companies

Case Study

Summary

  • In the initial hour of research, we were able to identify an example of a construction firm that aids individuals in renovating their homes to be net-zero.
  • We also provided a case study of how this has been done in the past.
  • Based on the data availability, we anticipate being able to fully answer the research question.
  • It is also worthy of note to point out that some examples (case studies) available in the public domain are a mixture of home conversion to net-zero and near net-zero energy homes (NNZEHs). As a result, this might be reflected in the final research brief based on the case studies identified and selected.
  • Therefore, we recommend continued research to provide additional case studies on this topic, including any existing guidelines/templates for individuals to transform existing houses into net-zero homes.
  • No geographical focus was communicated for the research. As a result, we have assumed a global focus. In a case where a different geographical focus is expected [for example, the United States], this has to be communicated to us in the form of a comment in the approved research path.
  • Details of our proposed research parts are provided below in the research proposal section.
