Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
By the 1960s, simulation tools were already being used in the area of building simulation. Since then, programs have been continuously developed and adapted in many different areas ranging from thermal simulations to acoustics and daylight simulations. With rising computational capabilities and with both new emerging methods and existing methods adapted to the area of building performance simulation, such as artificial intelligence, new and exciting research fields can be tackled which were unfeasible a few years ago.
We cordially invite you to submit your current research to this Special Issue, focusing on energy efficiency in building simulations concerning the performance of single buildings up to district level. This includes (but is not limited to) research in the area of building performance simulation, energy efficiency in general, energy simulations in building environments, indoor thermal comfort simulations and applications, building services and appliance simulation, occupant behavior in buildings, building information modelling coupled with simulations, computational fluid dynamics simulations for indoor environment settings, energy-saving and optimization efforts in building domains, energy distribution in buildings and districts, and applications of artificial intelligence in building simulation contexts. Focus should also lie on the validation and verification of the selected methods in terms of methodological approach as well as data coherency.
You are invited to present your new methodologies and are asked to state your contribution to knowledge with your research paper. We are looking forward to your contributions!

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
