Special Issue Information
Dear Colleagues,

Smart buildings (SBs) are designed and managed over the long term through the supply chain and multidisciplinary consumers demand. It means that all consumers must to undestand the need for a long-term vision and effective communication processes. To do this, SBs have been chosen as attractive research topics that provide consumers with uninterrupted electricity. Moreover, these SBs  are considered as an option to improve energy security. For this reason, this special issue is dedicated to smart energy distribution and energy storage in SBs. To improve the quality of the indoor environment and reduce the energy requirements of a building during peak periods, new research results and new proven practices should be presented. Articles dealing with new low-energy Vehicle To Grid (V2G), Vehicle To Home (V2H) and Home to Vehicle (H2V) are particularly welcome.

This special issue will encourage authors to develop advanced intelligent approaches for the smart home using important technologies such as inexpensive sensors, generalized automation, etc. These approaches promise a new level of comfort for consumers while encouraging sustainable solutions. Submissions are welcome on topics related to the following areas:

  • Intelligent Buildings and Cities: Visions and Strategies
  • Innovation and Technology
  • People: Health and Wellbeing
  • Economics, Design and Management
  • Biomimetic Architecture
  • Cities for People
  • Designing and Managing for Sustainability
  • Design, engineering process and field applications of energy storage in the built environment,
  • System integration of storage systems into building envelopes and building-integrated-renewables configurations,
  • Storage-based systems for mitigating indoor-outdoor microclimate,
  • Intelligent predictive control strategies in buildings with energy storage system,
  • Energy storage applications in smart building settlements.
