Professor Franz Fuerst’s research explores the nexus between the property market and energy efficiency and sustainability. It deals with how energy efficiency improvement in buildings cannot be achieved without including the broader real estate investment in energy efficiency itself. Both energy efficiency and sustainability are largely correlated with better buildings and other desirable features in general, which is attractive for building owners and users. However, this provides a challenge in disentangling the data and isolating the energy efficiency impact for researchers.
