Media reviews

'Several high quality scientific journals are published in the area of building energy and indoor/outdoor environment; however, one has been missing. Advances in Building Energy Research fills the gap. I recommend ABER to all technical libraries, research institutes and universities. It should also be used by construction companies and those manufacturing building materials and building products.' Professor Olli Seppanen, President of REHVA (Federation of Heating and Air-conditioning Associations) 'Advances in Building Energy Research is a unique index. It will be an inexhaustible resource for energy related sciences and a continuous inspiration for architects around the world.' N. Fintikakis, Architect and Director of UIA-ARES WP (Architecture and Renewable Energy Sources) 'The topic of Energy in buildings is today very high on many political agendas. This ABER Publication brings new insights in topics as solar chimneys, green roofs, the urban dimension on energy,... In addition, various aspects of performance prediction are covered as well as optimization challenges.' Peter Wouters, Manager INIVE EEIG (International Network for Information on Ventilation and Energy Performance)
