New Development for Decarbonization in Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning in Buildings

Abstract submission deadline: 30 March 2023

Manuscript submission deadline: 30 August 2023

Topic Information


It is well-acknowledged that decarbonization in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) is one of fundamental measures to meet the net zero carbon emissions target. In the past decades, research has been very active globally to explore miscellaneous energy conservation and renewable energy solutions to minimize carbon emissions in supplying energy for HVAC in buildings. Such research and development efforts are being accelerated through various programs in many countries, stimulated by the recent COP26 conference on climate change mitigation. We believe that these ongoing research activities are producing many innovative outcomes on the topic of decarbonization in HVAC; we therefore cordially invite relevant scholars to submit their research findings to the article collection of this Topic, which will hopefully serve as a platform for the exchange of knowledge and the stimulation of new innovations.


The specific topics include, but are not limited to, new developments in the following:


  • Photovoltaic–thermal technology coupled with HVAC.
  • Configuration and control of multisource heat pumps.
  • Low-carbon strategies in space heating, cooling, and DHW.
  • Automation, resilience, and effect of occupant behavior in the decarbonization of HVAC systems.
  • Performance enhancement of phase change materials.
  • Process design and material selection in thermochemical energy storage.
  • Total energy recovery and use of thermoelectric modules in ventilation and desiccant cooling.
  • Potential of sky radiative cooling.
  • Solar-driven cooling applications.
  • Natural refrigerants.
