Commercial Buildings Technology Roadmap 35 Chapter 3 Commercial Buildings Technology Roadmap A Glimpse of the Future By 2020…Commercial buildings will feature: • Organic, dynamic envelopes (like human skin) that can rapidly respond to changing environmental conditions • Microscale thermal conditioning sources, individually controlled to meet user’s preferences • Dynamic, personalized ventilation • “Plug-and-play” components and systems • Waste source materials for building construction • Solid-state sources for lighting, coupled with dynamic levels and daylighting • Distributed energy resources at the site level (photovoltaic, fuel cells, combined cooling, heating, and power) generating power for the building or the utility grid • Digital wireless microsensors, personalized building controls, and metering • Buildings will be considered as part of a larger “whole community”.

Will specialized commercial facilities remain the norm, or will mixed-use buildings and communities better suit the way we live and work today? How must commercial buildings evolve to enhance human health and productivity, and to support the increasingly mobile, digital, and team-based nature of today’s businesses? This commercial building roadmap represents the results of a twoyear process aimed at understanding these and many other questions. The roadmap evaluates the promise of new technologies and practices in the design, planning, siting, construction, and operation of commercial buildings.

From a market perspective, strategic focus is on developing standards, encouraging consideration of life-cycle benefits, educating consumers, and providing incentives to reduce investment barriers. , integrated into a larger building context). Each of the strategies that emerged from discussions with experts is supported by a series of high-priority activities that will directly lead to their fulfillment. Virtually all of the activities and technology capabilities were judged to be achievable in the short (less than three years) to medium (three to 10 years) term.
