Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The building sector is crucial to China’s carbon peak and carbon neutral targets for tackling global climate change. In recent years, building carbon emissions have become a new growth area because of the accelerated urbanization and the resulting residential demand for energy consumption. This poses a threat to society, the economy, and the environment. Achieving carbon peaks, carbon neutrality, and sustainable development require a system transformation of the building and construction industry. Assessing building carbon emissions and energy efficiency performance would be helpful to the green transformation of the building and construction industry. Path optimization is critical for mitigating the carbon emissions of these industries.
Therefore, this Special Issue will provide a platform for researchers to show and exchange ideas related to building related energy consumption and carbon emissions. The research scope may be conducted on the global, national, regional, provincial, or end-use level. The topics for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, building carbon emission prediction, carbon peak and carbon neutrality, building energy system modeling and optimization, building retrofits, sustainable construction and management, energy policy evaluation, energy efficiency of the building and construction industry, etc.

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. Buildings is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
