Passive and Active Utilization of Solar Energy in Buildings

Solar energy is a free energy source that is available in every part of the world. Globally, building sectors’ energy consumption contributes to large-scale conventional fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions.

Utilizing solar energy to meet buildings’ energy demands represents a way to minimize buildings’ conventional energy consumption. However, the application of solar technologies for buildings needs a proper evaluation to ensure that these technologies are effective, efficient, and lower in cost.

This special issue examines the different advanced solar energy technologies that can be applied in the building sector to reduce conventional energy demand via passive and active solar energy utilization.

Submission Instructions

This special issue aims to gather important scientific information regarding the passive and active utilization of solar energy in buildings based on theories, practices, policies, and laboratory studies. This will help policymakers, building managers and government agencies in devising plans and strategies to reduce conventional energy demand.

This special issue may include, but is not limited to, the following topics:
• Building designs
• Building materials
• Building envelopes
• BIPV and related technologies
• HVAC systems                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            • Landscaping                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              • Urban planning                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        • Solar energy technologies for buildings

We are inviting researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to contribute original research that is based on theoretical, computational, laboratory, and field studies. The output of this special issue will help with the refinement of present policies and standards in preparation for solar energy and efficient buildings.
