The Institute of Building Environment and Sustainable Technology of Xi'an Jiaotong University focuses on the key requirements of building energy conservation and healthy environment. The institute is a leading team in the field of building environment systems, building energy conservation, renewable energy utilization technology, special environmental regulation, energy-efficient heat dissipation technology, and healthy environment and materials development. The institute has 16 faculty members, more than 40 research students, and senior undergraduate students participating research projects. It comprises 4 professors/ professorate senior engineers and 9 associate professors, including 2 young science and technology stars from Shaanxi Province. The institute has formed a team with reasonable structures, and formed a good research environment and spirit of “rigorous, pragmatic, united and motivated”. The institute focuses on cultivating the international vision of graduate students. We have undertaken international projects cooperated with UN-HABITAT, IEA-SHC, GIZ and other international organizations. We have developed fruitful academic exchanges and cooperation with international high-level research institutes such as Nanyang Technological University, National University of Singapore, UC Berkeley, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, and The Italian National Institute. We provide opportunities for all graduate students to participate in international conferences. The institute also pay great attention to the cooperation with domestic research institutes and enterprises, such as China Northwest Architecture Design and Research Institute Co. Ltd., China United Northwest Institute Co. Ltd., China Architecture Design & Research Group, China National Engineering Research Center for Human Settlements, Shenzhen Envicool Technology Co. Ltd., and Hisense-Hitachi Air-conditioning System Co. Ltd. The institute has participated in the establishment of the Shaanxi Energy Environmental & Building Energy Conservation Engineering Technology Research Center, the Shaanxi Technology Research Center of Built Environment and Energy Engineering, and the Research Institute of Climate Adaptive Buildings and Human Settlements. The institute has a close exchange and cooperation with Chinese Society for Sustainable Development, Chinese Association of Refrigeration, Committee of Healthy Habitat-Architectural Society of China, Chinese Renewable Energy Society, Science and Technology and Industrialization Development Center of the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, China Industry Technology Innovation Strategic Alliance for Housing, and Prefabricated Housing Industry Technology Innovation Strategic Alliance. The institute regularly hosts or co-organizes high-level conferences such as “Relics Conservation Environmental Management Technology Forum”, and “Human Settlements Forum”. In the past five years, the institute has led more than 20 national/provincial research projects, and more than 30 enterprises projects. The members have published more than 200 research papers, including 120 SIC journal papers and 60 EI papers. In addition, more than 30 patents and 3 software copyrights are authorized.
