Special Issue Information
We live and spend more than 80% of our time in the built environment. It plays an important role in human health, and is responsible for a significant portion of global energy consumption. A sustainable built environment can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and a healthy built environment also gains increasing demand for the improvements it offers in public health and well-being, especially since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The objective of this Special Issue is to collect papers that address sustainable and healthy built environment design with intelligent and innovative solutions, such as passive building systems, smart monitoring and controls, data science and artificial intelligence, etc.
In this Special Issue, original research papers, case studies, experimental results, and review papers are welcome. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
- Passive building system design;
- Advanced heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system design and control;
- Building energy-efficient operation and management;
- Energy modeling and evaluation in buildings;
- Indoor air quality;
- Indoor thermal comfort;
- Index systems for evaluation and decision making on sustainable/healthy built environment;
- Smart monitoring systems;
- Occupant-centric building control;
- Data science and its application in built environment;
- Smart buildings.
