the questions
The questions
  • We analyze two things:
    • The adoption process
    • Who adopts?
    • At which pace?
    • Why?
    • The effects of labels on the sale process
    • On speed of sale
    • On pricing
    • Why?
the adoption process conclusions
The adoption process / conclusions
  • Adoption rates are:
  • Falling over time
  • Driven by:
  • dwelling type
  • dwelling age
  • dwelling size
  • interior maintenance
  • location (low density, high values)
  • ideals (voting green)
  • and not by: heating system or insulation

The questions, one more thing…
  • We will analyze a third thing soon:
    • The adoption process
    • Who adopts?
    • At which pace?
    • Why?
    • The effects of labels on the sale process
    • On speed of sale
    • On pricing
    • Why?
    • The real energy usage (gas and electricity) for all individual dwellings
    • What drives energy use?
    • How strong is the link between EPC and usage?
    • Is energy use capitalized? (for labeled versus non-labeled dwellings)
    • Does energy usage drive adoption rates?
conclusions
Conclusions

We find that energy labels are adopted:

slow

by high-end owners of relatively young homes in competitive markets

that are also more likely to vote green during elections

We also find that the energy label does not effect the speed of sale

but green labeled homes are sold at a premium of 2.45%

also when controlling for quality

The link to real energy use is next…
