Low Carbon Buildings and Neighbourhoods

This Special Issue aims to explore the complex synergies of Low Carbon Buildings and Neighbourhoods. At global scale, building and construction activities are responsible for 39% of energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions . To achieve ‘Sustainable Cities and Communities’, one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), within 1.5degC global warming limit, it is essential that building and construction projects should immediately reduce its carbon footprint drastically and accomplish net zero carbon emission by 2050. One of the major questions is ‘How to ensure that buildings and neighbourhoods designed and built today can achieve net zero emission for the next 30 years and beyond?’ This Special Issue attempts to disentangle complex relationship between carbon emissions, energy consumption, thermal comfort and health & well-being of occupants in the context of built environment.

We invite authors to submit research papers, reviews, discussions, case studies and conceptual articles on topics including, but not limited to:

  • Climate specific low carbon buildings- addressing the challenges of warm and tropical regions
  • Net zero energy/ carbon buildings
  • Energy efficient building technologies
  • Renewable energy integration in buildings
  • Bioclimatic design strategies to meet low energy goals
  • High performance architecture
  • Innovative building construction systems
  • Thermal comfort in buildings/ outdoor spaces in future climate scenarios
  • Climate change and its impact on buildings/ neighbourhood planning
  • Design challenges for low carbon precincts
  • Low carbon energy systems at precinct and neighbourhood scales
  • Reviews of government policies and regulations to promote low carbon buildings/ neighbourhoods
