Even though energy efficiency provides obvious benefits to new or retrofitted buildings and is widely seen as an appropriate approach to handle the increasing energy and the environment problems, the process of getting there is prohibitively complex and full adoption of energy efficiency in new buildings has been low. While the individual level of energy-efficient aspects like appliances and materials are progressing, the aggregate level of integrating these individual pieces to maximize the energy efficiency potential (Green BIM in particular) seems lagging. This chapter then aims to investigate major factors and introduce the use of Agile project management concept to enhance Green BIM adoption while ultimately increasing energy efficiency in new or retrofitted buildings.
