Eneref Institute Reports

Research & Advocacy Organization

for Socially Responsible Sustainable Development.

Eneref Case Study Reports are designed to help people understand the importance of environmental and social issues by focusing on individual stories. The story of a single occurrence garners a better understanding than a million similar occurrence — which is only seen as a statistic. Eneref Market Reports are designed as criteria for evaluation.

Reports by Methodology

Our rigorously-researched market reports are components of an Eneref Institute initiative and are targeted to people who can most effect change. Research is accomplished by exploring the economic, social and environmental benefits of advances in sustainable development within various market sectors. We gather and evaluate data from individual case studies; interviewing qualified and quality stakeholders within the sales channel, from manufacturer to end user.

The reports aim to contribute to market transparency through a comprehensive analysis of the recent trends and future prospects.

Every organization must harness their capacity to improve our planet and society. Right now, we need to make unprecedented changes to ensure a sustainable and equitable society.

Limiting global warming requires rapid and far-reaching transitions in land, energy, industry, buildings, transport and cities. Every extra bit of warming matters to reduce irreversible harm to our ecosystems. We encourage organizations to grow sustainably and act responsibly by raising awareness for clear, specific solutions that offer an efficient use of natural resources, demonstrate social responsibility and foster a peaceful, earth-friendly economy.

Eneref Institute case studies look at the successful implementation of socially beneficial sustainable development as testimonials that demonstrate the success and benefits of workable solutions.

Eneref evidence-based case studies are often republished in formal research venues and popular trade media. Our research strategy uses empirical inquiry that investigates a phenomenon within its real-life context, based on any mix of quantitative and qualitative evidence.

Eneref Video reports bring out the authentic emotion in our interviewees in a way that no other medium can. They communicate all the logical reasoning of a text-based case study but add powerful and sincere human feelings. Each video case study is unique because each of end-users is unique.

Reports by Application

Eneref Energy Reports

People need light for their health and well-being. Light meets both visual and non-visual needs – and understanding this interaction has opened up a new realm of applications. These insights help lighting designers develop solutions that are targeted at enhancing vision, well-being, and performance by applying an in-depth knowledge of science and user needs.


Eneref Land Reports

Sustainable flooring is produced from sustainable materials that reduce demands on the ecosystem during its life-cycle, or by sustainable processes. This includes harvest, production, use, and disposal. Sustainable floors create safer and healthier homes and buildings and protect natural resources.


Eneref Building Reports

Sustainable roofs can both save and produce energy, capture rooftop stormwater, and improve use and reuse of roofing materials.

Roof insulation will minimize building heating and cooling requirements. Rooftop vegetation can minimize the impact on local ecology. Solar panels supplement building power, while solar tubes heat the water. Stormwaters system can provide irrigation for the building site. Skylights offer human-centric net-zero lighting.


Eneref Industry Reports

Innovative HVACR strategy pairs traditional heating and cooling with energy-efficient air movement to permit a substantial offset of necessary HVACR capacity while improving air quality by ensuring fresh air reaches the occupant breathing zone. With a reduction in energy consumption, end-users can raise the thermostat setpoint without sacrificing comfort.


Eneref Transport Reports

A CloudCommuter works near their home via the internet to reduce their commute and their carbon footprint. Today many of us no longer need to commute into the office every day in order to effectively do our jobs. Fewer commutes will help mitigate climate change. And since today’s technologies allow for meetings with anyone anywhere, its time we ask ourselves why so many people suffer the drudgery of commuting to work unnecessarily.


Eneref Water Reports

Policy on water infrastructure involves planning and financing. Local officials and utilities who manage assets can begin to consider alternative technologies. Water efficiency provides a range of benefits for the community. Using less water means moving and treating less water, which reduces the strain on infrastructure.

Delivering water and wastewater services is also energy-intensive. Water utilities often account for 30 to 40 percent of total energy consumed by municipalities.


Eneref Cities Reports

Our indoor environment s affects our health and well-being. People who live in industrialized societies can spend more than 90 percent of their time indoors. Exposure to indoor environments has grown significantly over the last 50 years.

Eneref Wellness reports look at opportunities that can create healthier indoor spaces in which to live, work and play.
