This paper discusses some of the innovations involved in "greening" a home, and then provides an overview of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats offered by entering the green building industry.


From the Paper:

"Consumers today are more cost-conscious than ever before. Greening a home, by replacing energy-inefficient windows, caulking drafts, and replacing light bulbs will all result in tremendous cost savings on current buildings. Given the glut in the housing market, consumers may wish to make their current homes more affordable than move to new homes. Greening a home, with a future-oriented focus on energy costs is the obvious solution, and can provide a boon to the industry in terms of refurbishing current houses to make them greener."
