Methods for climate-resilient building performance simulations under impacts of changing climate

Context:
As a result of changing climate, urbanization, and densification, there is a rapid increase in air conditioning usage in buildings worldwide. Meanwhile, climate change also increases the frequency of extreme events such as heat waves, wildfires, and power outages. Therefore, buildings and their energy systems should be designed and operated to be resilient to ensure a safe, healthy, comfortable, energy-efficient, and low-carbon indoor environment during extreme events. To address these new challenges, it is essential to develop new methods and models for building resilient performance simulations under the impacts of changing climate and assess resilient cooling and overheating protection solutions.

Aims:
This SI intends to gather state-of-the-art research on the methods of climate-resilient building performance simulations for overcoming the challenges of climate change. The resilient technologies to improve the building performance includes, but are not limited to, passive and active cooling and heating technologies, such as the technologies to manage external heat gains, enhance personal comfort, to remove and control sensible and/or latent heat from indoor environments, as well as to improve survivability of building occupants.

Topics of interest:
The submissions should be original research and within JBSP aims and scope. Specific topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Methods for climate modeling for resilient buildings and communities designs.
- Uncertainty analysis, validation/calibration approach of building performance modeling for resilience.
- Novel modelling/simulation approaches for resilient buildings.
- Case studies of resilient buildings with validation data and new key performance indexed (KPIs).
- Assessment of resilient cooling technologies under the impacts of climate change in different climate conditions.
- Software development techniques and interoperability issues with direct applicability to climate-resilient building performance simulations.
- New standards, codes, and guidelines developments supported by evidence and data to improve building climate resilience.
- Understanding mitigation measures to improve survivability of buildings and occupants under climate change and extreme weather.
