Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We cordially invite you to submit your most recent research related to building energy efficiency in new buildings or in rehabilitation processes and/or sustainable built environments for this Special Issue entitled "Advances in Building Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Built Environment".

New or existing buildings and the built environment must look for sustainability paths. The progress achieved in recent years must be continued in the present day as part of the constant search for sustainability, contributing to a better environment and providing an economic and social balance.

Built environments have a large ecosystem impact. Scientific and technical communities must improve energy efficiency in buildings, contributing to sustainable built environments for the next generation.

The main goal of this Special Issue on “Advances in Building Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Built Environment” is to reflect on this question and to propose sustainable solutions to new or existing buildings, as well as to urban areas.

This Special Issue aims to collect excellent contributions and high-impact papers that identify and discuss better approaches, tools, solutions, and exemplar case studies that assess these advances in buildings and urban areas.

Contributions from academia, designers, industry and managers that allow a broad perspective and wide-ranging approaches and discussions on building energy efficiency and/or sustainable built environment areas are welcomed. Papers submitted to this Special Issue are of interest if they cover the above-mentioned areas.
