This Special Issue seeks contributions tackling a wide range of topics addressing improvement of energy efficiency in building approaches, including but not limited to: building energy performance simulation, building automation and control systems (BACS), demand-side flexibility in buildings, post-occupancy evaluation (POE), indoor environmental quality, nearly-zero energy buildings (N-ZEB), smart meter data, multicriteria decision aid approaches in buildings, and energy behavior and sustainability in buildings. Further topics related to machine learning algorithms and data-driven approaches to tackle the challenging topic of analyzing the data gathered from the increasing number of sensors installed in buildings to improve their design and operation are welcome. Interdisciplinary contributions using real-world data will be particularly appreciated.
We look forward to receiving your original and novel research, so that this Special Issue may be a collection of interesting papers contributing to the relevant literature in this challenging topic.
Please reach out to me if you are interested in contributing or if you have further questions.
