Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The impact of global warming and climate change on our living environment is significant and the main cause is the burning of fossil fuels to meet the world energy requirements. As buildings account for more than half of our energy consumption and humans spend the majority of our time indoor, it is important to move towards the construction of green buildings without sacrificing thermal comfort. In this special issue, the editor hopes to foster greater understanding of the application of passive building designs in achieving net zero energy (or carbon) consumption for buildings under various climate conditions. In addition, the behaviour and interaction of occupants with green building design in achieving optimal thermal comfort is an area suitable for further discussion. As the energy consumption of buildings depends on the interaction between their surrounding buildings and external environment, the effects of this interaction should be another interesting focus for discussion.
