Energy & Buildings special issue: “Resilient Ventilation in Relation to Health, Safety, and Climate Change”
We are happy to inform you that the Energy and Buildings special issue: “Resilient Ventilation in Relation to Health, Safety, and Climate Change”, including also further developed papers from the AIVC 2022 conference, has been published.
In this special issue, the role of ventilation and infiltration in building decarbonization, and improvement of indoor air quality including epidemic preparedness is highlighted. How can design, construction and renovation practices, innovative and digital technologies contribute in creating resilient ventilation strategies that help tackle today’s challenges in health, safety and climate change?
