Dear colleague,

We are preparing a Special Issue called “Data Science for Building Energy Management” within the Energies Journal (MDPI) (Impact Factor 2.702) that will be published next year.

We want to invite you to submit a work to this special issue with your recent research (see details below). Feel free to send questions or comments to the special issue editors (see https://www.mdpi.com/journal/energies/special_issues/data_science_for_building_energy_management for the email details)


Deadline for manuscript submission: 25 July, 2021

We are expecting your participation. You can disseminate the information to other people that may be interested in the session.

Best regards,

Prof. Dr. María José Martin-Bautista

Special Issue Information

Dear Collegues,

Nowadays, the volume of data digitally stored and managed in building facilities has considerably increased due to the increasing use of easy-to-install IoT devices. The large number of measurements taken, enriched with external data, such as weather forecasts and occupation schedules, can provide meaningful insights when analyzing the energy efficiency of buildings, thus increasing the improvement opportunities to efficiently manage the energy footprint of buildings. 

This Special Issue is dedicated to high-quality research and solutions proposing original data science applications for building energy management that address theoretical and/or practical problems based on solid theory and/or empirical analysis.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
