Special Issue "Energy Efficient Building Design and Operation 2014"
A special issue of Energies (ISSN 1996-1073).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 June 2014)
The focus of this Special Issue will be on the design, construction and operation of high performance buildings. High performance buildings are those that provide all the required building services for occupants in an energy and cost efficient manner. Contributions are being solicited for research or survey papers describing building materials, components and systems that enable or provide for the efficient use of energy while maintaining a productive indoor environment for building occupants. Possible topics include:
- building envelope design
- selection and operation of mechanical equipment and thermal machinery
- space conditioning systems
- indoor environmental quality
- control system design and operation
- building simulation
- model predictive control
- smart buildings
- renewable energy systems and systems integration
Other areas of interest include enhanced occupant feedback and interactions, adaptive control, dynamic building response and optimization of building design and operation.
