Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning
With 2011 global revenues of $44.4 billion, high-performance HVAC systems make up the largest single Buildings subsegment (38%).
HVAC systems associated with advanced energy include energy-specific commercial retrofits, new HVAC systems that exceed local code compliance, ground-source heat pumps, and systems deployed in high-efficiency homes. With 2011 global revenues of $44.4 billion, these HVAC systems make up the largest single Buildings subsegment (38%). Commercial retrofits made up nearly 90% this total, with approximately half of commercial retrofits supplied through ESCO contracting mechanisms.
U.S. advanced energy HVAC revenue totaled $10.5 billion in 2011. Energy retrofits drove the largest portion of this revenue, supported by ESCOs serving primarily the municipal, university, state government, and healthcare (MUSH) sectors. Recent federal government initiatives (Executive Order 13514) have aimed to dramatically improve efficiency within the large government building stock, driving significant spending on HVAC retrofits.
Commercial HVAC retrofits supported by other mechanisms reflect over 40% of 2011 advanced energy HVAC revenue. Overall, U.S. revenue growth in the advanced energy HVAC subsegment from 2011 to 2012 is estimated at over 9%.
