The FEMTI 2021 (Frontiers of Energy Management and Technology Innovation: towards zero emissions) is a conference in the field of energy and buildings, organized by the PhD students of the University of Pisa. This inaugural edition of the FEMTI is dedicated to the latest innovation in the fields of energy efficiency and comfort in the civil and industrial fields.
In the last decades, the awareness of sustainability and the need for reducing energy consumptions has become increasingly relevant, due to the necessity to provide solutions to relevant issues such as anthropogenically induced climate change. In this scenario, both civil and industrial sectors play a key role in defining the strategies that are decisive to provide solutions to such problems. Furthermore, in accordance with the concerns of energy management, the increasing time that people are spending indoors led to the need for providing safe and healthy indoor environments, also in relation to the pandemic and post-pandemic situation. In this direction, Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) is getting wide recognition by cutting-edge research as the element to combine energy efficiency, savings, and wellbeing.
To highlight the major innovation in this field, the conference topics, thus those of the special issue will focus on:
- Building performance and efficiency measures
- Building energy management and Renewable Energy System (RES)
- Industrial systems and energy management
- Thermal control in hostile environments
- Indoor Environmental Quality
- Building Energy Simulation (BES) and thermal control in buildings
- Thermal comfort
- Local thermal comfort and Personal Comfort systems
The conference paper that will be accepted and presented at the conference are invited to submit at this special issue. The selection of the deserving articles will be performed by the Scientific Committee of the Conference. The official website of the conference is available at: http://www.femti.ing.unipi.it/.
The guest editors would like to acknowledge Eng. Giacomo Cillari, Eng. Giulia Lamberti, and Eng. Roberto Rugani from the University of Pisa for their efforts in organizing the conference and their contribution to the creation of this special issue.
