Associate Director, Sven Schimschar, is working as market expert for buildings and construction. He has almost 15 years of experience which encompasses detailed market analyses in more than 50 countries worldwide as well as global studies focusing on heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems as well as new construction and renovation activities.
Sven has experience with market research instruments including primary data gathering using surveys (from representative household panels to stakeholder specific expert interviews), official statistics and secondary literature. For his market analyses, he combines different types of sources to overcome data gaps and develops project specific Excel based tools. For this purpose, he developed the GLObal Building Stock Model (GLOBUS) which allows the development of residential and non-residential building stock inventories for all countries in the world and their long-term future development. In recent years, Sven managed and participated in projects for manufacturers of building related products (e.g. Vaillant, Bosch Thermotechnik, Rockwool, Knauf Insulation, Saint Gobain, Velux and Danfoss), national governments, the European Commission and other international organisations always with a focus on building market related topics and scenario developments. An example is his project manager role in the IKI funded project Build_ME: Accelerating zero-emission building sector ambitions in the MENA region that started in 2016 and still runs until 2021.
