Public awareness of ‘green’ residential property – an empirical survey based on data from New Zealand and Germany
Eves, Chris & Kippes, Stephan (2009) Public awareness of ‘green’ residential property – an empirical survey based on data from New Zealand and Germany. In European Real Estate Society, Stocholm, Sweden.
Over the last few years more stringent environmental laws (e.g. the German “Energie¬ein-sparverordnung ENEV” - Energy Performance of Buildings Directive) and soaring energy prices has increased the need for the real estate industry to react and participate in overall energy reduction through efficient house construction and design, as well as upgrading the existing housing stock to be more energy efficient. Therefore the Property Economics Group at Queensland University of Technology in Australia and Nuertingen-Geislingen University in Germany are carrying out research in relation to sustainable housing construction and public awareness of “green” residential property.
Part of this research is to gain an understanding of the level of knowledge and importance of these issues to the house buyer and to determine the importance of sustainable housing to the general public.
The paper compares data from two different empirical studies; one of studies analyzes the situation in New Zealand, the other is focused on Germany.
