Reacting to the need for accelerated action on reducing the effect of buildings on the climate change, we will be calling for and collecting papers for a series of special issue on the next genertion of energy efficvient buildings. The first of the issues (6-7 papers) will be focused on systems integration during the retrofit (renovation, rehabilitation, environmental upgrade of existing buildings of any type, shape and character including historic buildings) with the focus on Integration of Energy and Indoor Environment in Buildings. Today, an architect looking for a technology blueprint may find 140 research projects on Horizon 2020 or 100 published by each of the leading publishers like Elsevier, MDPI, Building Automation in IEEE, Springer or Informa each written about a piece off the puzzle. With the overflow of publications, we need to give a reader a focus on new developments in a holistic, multi-disciplinary approach to methods for new and retrofitting construction.
(a)The lead editor sends to 50 – 100 selected people requests for an extended abstract (up to 500 words), or an outline of the paper. Upon receiving the abstracts. the lead and one guest editor selected to coatch the paper will reply directly to the author giving an initial focus in the preparation of the paper.
(b)The review process goes without involvement of these editors and when the paper is approved by at least two reviewers the selected guest editor makes a proposal and the lead editor makes a final decision
(c)The lead editor sends the paper to the special publication, if accepted, or to the standard journal evaluation if the paper is not approved to the special issue.
Aims and Scope:
  1. Energy efficiency in different climates
  2. Adaptable indoor climate
  3. Dynamic operation of buildings
  4. Controlled contribution of thermal mass
  5. Smart buildings
  6. Integrated controls for HVAC and enclosure systems
  7. Indoor environment
  8. Hybrid ventilation systems
  9. Effective thermal upgrade systems
  10. Moisture management
  11. Retrofitting of historic building
