The building sector, which includes residential and commercial buildings, is responsible for about one-fifth of the world’s total delivered energy consumption. As the third largest energy consuming sector following the industrial and transportations sectors, the building sector is under increasing pressure to improve its energy efficiency, and to reduce its energy consumption and associated emissions. Thus, the focus of this special issue is on the spectrum of energy technologies, incentive programs and regulatory measures that will result in energy savings and shape the state of energy consumption and efficiency in the building sector in the next decade. Papers that provide a large-scale overview of the various subject areas are sought. Authors are encouraged to address, as much as possible, issues related to the building sectors in both the economically developed and developing nations. The objective of this special issue is to provide an authoritative and archival coverage, therefore only invited papers from leading researchers will be considered for publication.
