About This Topic

As the rapid development of the economy and human society, the energy and environmental issues have become more and more critical. One of the heavy energy consumers is heating and cooling for satisfying human’s living comfort and industrial processing. While the share of renewable energy sources like wind and solar for power generation is satisfied increasing, decarbonising heating and cooling still remains as a global challenge, which is now considered as an acute concern since the target of zero-carbon future can only be achieved by decarbonising all sectors.

This Special Issue provides a platform for publishing and sharing novel, inspiring and promising researches on decarbonizing heating and cooling technologies. This special issue will include the state of the art reviews, new researches, case studies, and conceptual works. The suitable topics include but are not limited to the following.

Ø New heating and/or cooling technologies
Ø New methods and significant deployment of heat and/or cold storage
Ø Solar and other renewable heating technologies
Ø Reduction of demand of heating and/or cooling
Ø District heating and/or cooling networks
Ø Whole and/or multi-vector heating and/or cooling systems
Ø Improvement of existing technologies in terms of cost or efficiency
Ø Interactions of heating and/or cooling solutions with energy network
