  • Opportunities in Green Retrofit - 88% of non-green BIM users believe they will use it for retrofit projects during next two years.
  • Energy Performance Monitoring - Owners have low awareness of the benefits of BIM.
  • Energy Performance Simulation - Green BIM users are simulating energy performance, including lighting/daylighting, whole building analysis, and energy code compliance.
