Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Energy efficiency and energy conservation research play a major role globally in governments' sustainability plans and in their policies aimed at reducing carbon footprints. This type of research is supported by the recently enumerated United Nations 2030 sustainability goals, such as affordable and clean energy, sustainable cities and communities, and responsible consumption and production.

This Special Issue covers a wide range of topics related to mechanical engineering, thermal engineering, electrical engineering, building sustainability, green buildings, emerging technologies and approaches aimed at improving energy production and transition. We welcome new and original work that contributes to energy efficiency and energy conservation. We will only consider papers that contain a novel element, issue, approach, method, or result that inspires progress in energy efficiency and energy conservation. Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Energy efficiency in buildings and building thermal performance.
  • Energy analysis and energy modeling.
  • Energy planning and energy management.
  • Energy storage, electric and thermal.
  • Clean energy materials and manufacturing process technologies.
  • Combined heat and power systems.
  • Energy control and energy auditing.
  • Electricity supply and demand.
  • New and renewable energy technologies.
