Innovation in the non-domestic buildings sector represents a significant opportunity to help meet the UK’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions targets, as well as providing value through avoided energy costs, amounting to carbon savings of 70 million tons of carbon dioxide (MtCO2) (30-134MtCO2) and energy savings of c. £14 billion (bn) (£6-27bn) by 20501. Innovation could help create domestic and export opportunities that could contribute total Gross Value Added (GVA) of c. £1.5bn (£0.6-3bn) to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) to 2050, while supporting 1,000 (430-2,000) direct jobs in 2050. Public sector support will be required to unlock this value, as there are significant market barriers across the sector to overcome.
