1 TEMPLATE DESIGN © Identifying Research Gaps in Implementation of Zero Energy Building (ZEB). Chayanika Mitra Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg, Virginia. Annie. R. Pearce Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg, Virginia OBJECTIVES PROCESS OVERVIEW Literature Review Identification of: 1.Research opportunities in context of ZEB. 2.Barriers in implementation of ZEB, based on content analysis. 3.Factors positively facilitating the adoption of ZEB among consumers. INITIAL LIST OF LITERATURE METHODOLOGY STEP 1: Identification of Literature. STEP 3: Mapping STEP 4: Gap Analysis REFERENCES United States is second only to Canada in energy use per person (DOE 2008). DOE defines a Zero Energy Building (ZEB) as a building with greatly reduced energy needs through efficiency gains such that the balance of the energy needs can be supplied by renewable technologies. It has been proven that these zero energy homes can lead to saving of energy up to 70% when compared to their traditionally built counterparts.(Parker et al. 2000).

Similar to the development of any technology, ZEB can be viewed from the prospective of innovation theory.. STEPS (Robson 2002) : 1.Start with a research question. 2.Decide on sampling strategy. 3.Define the recording unit. 4.Construct categories for analysis. 5.Carry out analysis PARAMETERS IDENTIFIED: 1.Barrier 2.Barrier Breaker 3.Parameter. - Snowball sampling. - Areas Searched: Environmental Management BACKGROUND Construction Market barrier Barriers Green building Barrier breakers Net zero energy home Diffusion of innovation Innovation in construction Net zero energy building Barriers in ZEB Barriers in Sustainable Construction Renewable energy Barriers in ZEH Conducted based on: Mapping (tables) To identify research gaps and opportunities. Parameters of each body of literature.. Mapping the attributes of the studies reviewed. In terms of parameters, which characterize ZEB projects..
