Building energy efficiency has been in the spotlight in the last four decades, since buildings are known to be responsible for a large part of energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. The research into building energy efficiency has branched into several strands, one of which is devoted to analyzing whether or not green buildings, in comparison to traditional ones, are built and sold at a premium. Despite the fact that many studies have been conducted so far on the topic, the actual occurrence of a cost premium and the exact magnitude of the price premium are still debated. Furthermore, whether or not the price premium outweighs the cost premium while undertaking specific energy performance improvement projects is seldom analyzed.
This Special Issue aims to start filling this gap by experimenting with innovative methods and models, which are seldom used in the literature, to detect the occurrence of price and cost premiums in green buildings. Since most of the studies published so far use traditional hedonic models, with a rather recent turn to spatial autoregressive models, we encourage scholars to submit original research articles dealing with different approaches such as logistic and binomial regression models, quantile regression, and geographically weighted regression, not to mention other approaches adapted to suit the case at hand. Suitable works include studies comparing price premiums and cost premiums to assess the economic viability of energy efficiency measures.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
