  15. 15. Conclusions: The respondents of the first group have an interest to green technologies and green buildings in particular (probably as future customers) and associate green building mostly with energy efficiency as energy resources are considered to be one of the most significant expenses at building performance. Thus in some of the countries there is a still lack of interest to such buildings that can be caused the lack of information about them.
  16. 16.  As well as in previous survey priorities for second group respondents are energy and resources efficiency of green building. Thus there is observed rather low or average interest in green buildings construction in the locations of respondents. Lack of green materials/energy-saving technologies and lack of high-skilled specialists in this area are among of main possible factors of such phenomena The positive sign is that customers are ready to overpay 5 and even 15% for green construction project but the most of respondents will consider various factors including incentives such as tax credits.
