TL;DR: In this article, the authors examined the incentive effects of government subsidy policies to promote the development of green buildings and found that the incentive effect of subsidies on consumers was superior to that of subsidy on developers, revealing the increasingly important role of consumer behavior.
Abstract: This study aimed to examine the incentive effects of government subsidy policies to promote the development of green buildings. In particular, four different designs of subsidy policy were investigated: a) subsidies paid to developers alone, b) subsidies paid to consumers alone, c) subsidies paid to both, and d) no subsidy. Two-stage models involving developers, consumers, and the government were constructed to examine the effects of the different subsidy policies. In the models, developers supply and sell buildings with different green effort levels; consumers purchase the buildings according to their green preferences. The results of the numerical analysis indicated that the subsidies were a positive incentive for the development of green buildings. Simultaneously subsidizing both developers and consumers resulted in the greatest profits for developers and the highest social welfare. The incentive effect of subsidies on consumers was superior to that of subsidies on developers, revealing the increasingly important role of consumer behavior in the green building market. Furthermore, the incentive effects of the four subsidy policies were significantly enhanced with the improvement of consumers' green preferences and the unit potential benefit for developers.

TL;DR: In this paper , an in-depth qualitative analysis is performed to force out the challenges that Europe faces in decarbonizing the heating sector from the aspects, such as using clean energy resources, effective heat energy conversion and management approaches.
Abstract: Europe anchored aspiring targets in achieving climate neutrality and this motivates the research communities to analyze, investigate and frame strategies to achieve the goals in the stipulated timeframe. This study reviews the effective decarbonization strategies in the context of Europe's climate neutral vision. Initially, the study analyzes the reasons for ever-increasing emissions and investigates the perception of decarbonization in line with various influencing factors such as population size, economic growth, energy intensity, emission intensity, innovation, affordability and time. Subsequently, an in-depth qualitative analysis is performed to force out the challenges that Europe faces in decarbonizing the heating sector from the aspects, such as using clean energy resources, effective heat energy conversion and management approaches. Sustainable approaches and practices are proposed to mitigate carbonization and to promote carbon sink in line with the major problems associated with various sectors such as building, energy, industry and transportation sector. Furthermore, the roles of digitalization in decarbonization are explored and the inherent challenges are also discussed. This study also reviews various decarbonization policies that can direct the governments' action to effectively make a transition towards a climate-neutral society. The key findings highlight that solar energy utilization in small-scale is relatively not preferable for heat energy conversion in Europe due to climatic conditions, while district heating network with bio- and geothermal energy resource highly favors clean heat transformation scenario. In addition, 3D printing has a prodigious role to reduce building lifecycle emissions and hybrid policies as well as reward-based policies yields better outcomes. Promoting hydrogen utilization and carbon capture storage and utilization technologies can pivot climate neutrality in the sectors that are difficult to decarbonize. On the other hand, it can be observed that more focus is provided to reduce emissions and significantly less attention is focused on carbon sink.

TL;DR: Wang et al. as mentioned in this paper studied the dynamic government's reward and penalty evolution during the construction process, and found that the dynamic reward and static penalty is the best strategy to promote green building construction, while the probability of active supervision by government is inversely proportional to subsidy and positively proportional to penalty.
Abstract: Green building incentives are widely adopted in the world to promote green building construction. However, the incentives from the government are usually predetermined, which cannot obtain a stable effect in green construction practice. To better promote green building construction, this paper studies dynamic government’s reward and penalty evolution during the construction process. Based on the prospect theory, the decision of government reward and penalty is formulated as evolutionary game model under four different scenarios: static reward and static penalty, dynamic reward and static penalty, static reward and dynamic penalty, and dynamic reward and dynamic penalty. Through theoretical analysis, our results revealed that the dynamic reward and static penalty is the best strategy to promote green building construction. More specifically, if the intensity of subsidy and penalty increases, contractors tend to green construction; while the probability of active supervision by government is inversely proportional to subsidy and positively proportional to penalty. This study can provide a useful insight for the policy makers to formulate effective reward and penalty policy, thereby standardizing the behavior of contractors, and reducing the negative impact of the construction industry on the environment.

TL;DR: In this article, a case study and simulation method are used to simulate the impact of implementation strength for environmental policies on the decision-making of stakeholders in green building alliances, and the simulation results show that the effect of different environmental policies should reach a certain threshold (over 0.5).
