About This Topic

Dear Colleagues.

Information and research results on energy sustainability, indoor air quality, and the well-being of new, existing, and/or historic buildings have been a hot topic of research in recent years, as well as a major EU policy target. Reducing the energy and carbon footprint of the construction and operation phase of buildings and infrastructure is the main way to achieve carbon emission targets. Also redefining the end phase of materials, by introducing circular processes in the construction industry is the way to decarbonize the building stock. At the same time, the built environment must be adapted to climate change in the form of increased ambient temperatures, as well as control systems and environmental monitoring incorporating simulations of building and plant systems, thermal comfort, health and indoor air quality.
