Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The building sector is responsible for a large ratio of global primary energy usage, contributing to around 40% of energy-related carbon dioxide emissions. Meanwhile, people spend approximately 90% of their time in buildings, effects of indoor environment quality on occupant health cannot be ignored. Therefore, minimizing energy use while maintaining occupant indoor environment quality is becoming an important issue. The efficient and sustainable management of the indoor environment relies on such efforts as efficient energy system design, advanced control strategy, and comprehensive assessment. Meanwhile, the wide development of smart meters, advancement of measurements and the development of information communication technology provide new chances for indoor environment design, management and assessment.

With the recent expansion of research showing that data-driven control and analysis support efficient indoor environment management, it is also important to properly evaluate the optimization results. We invite researchers that address smart energy management, built environment evaluation and environmental health topics to guide new research directions. Original results from experimental and simulation investigations, model optimization and review papers related to carbon reduction, energy efficiency and environmental assessment are all welcome contributions.
