Climate Investment in Emerging Markets: Green Buildings are the largest Opportunities

Buildings will constitute a $5 trillion market through 2020 in THE TOP 12 Emerging Markets 
The global green buildings market continues to double in size every three years. The International Energy Agency estimates that the building sector alone needs an additional investment of up to $296 billion each year if average global temperatures are to be capped at 2°C. This is in addition to the $358 billion that already goes into the sector each year. The biggest growth in green buildings is expected in developing countries.

I did not know such huge investments went into global green buildings. I would appreciate if you could post more about the future prospects of these buildings.
