The building sector is responsible for a significant proportion of global energy usage, and generates large quantities of greenhouse gas emissions. Buildings will play a key role in the transition to a low-carbon and clean energy future through deep decarbonization and assisting in achieving nations’ commitment to the Paris Agreement’s long-term temperature goal to limit global warming. This has intensified the calls for innovative technologies for increased energy efficiency, resilience and sustainability. This Special Issue aims to collect excellent research and review articles addressing global imperatives and stringent environmental standards related to energy and sustainability in buildings to meet the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The potential topics of this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:
- Building energy-saving solutions and techniques.
- Energy storage technologies and applications in buildings.
- Building carbon emission mitigation strategies.
- Smart energy technologies.
- Building energy management solutions.
- Demand flexibility.
- Renewable energy in buildings.
- Advanced building heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.
- Building big data analytics.
- Data-driven modelling.
