Canadian Solar Buildings Research Network, Canada, 2006, Invitation to the Konwakai meeting of experts of Daikin Co, Japan, 2008-2015.My h index in the various data bases are : 78 in Google Scholar, 51 in Scopus without self citations, and 53 in SCI.Included in the list of Highly Cited Researchers in Engineering for 2017, (Clarivate). Also, included in the list of 100 most cited researchers in Building Science and Engineering by the Shanghai Ranking.My research focus on the energy and environmental quality of the built environment. In particular, the main objective of my work is to mitigate the local climate change, urban heat island and decrease the temperature in cities, b) Decrease the energy consumption of the buildings sector and c) Eradicate energy poverty in developed and developing countries. I am working on the development and application of innovative mitigation materials to counterbalance the impact of urban heat island in cities, the development of energy efficient heat dissipation technologies and the adaptation of the urban energy systems to face the challenge of local and climate change. I have designed and optimized, innovative materials for the urban built environment, including cutting edge chromic materials, highly reflective coatings for buildings and urban structures, nanotechnological components, and energy dissipation systems of very high efficiency. Most of the developed systems and materials are commercialized by major international industries and are used in thousands of projects around the world. I have designed, optimized, supervised and monitored more than 50 successful large scale urban mitigation projects using advanced technological systems to decrease the ambient temperature and improve the outdoor environmental quality. Most of the projects are in Europe, Asia and Australia, where I am scientific coordinator of the Darwin, Alice Springs and Western Sydney mitigation Projects. Almost all projects are fully monitored and analyzed in details. It is documented that the achieved peak temperature decrease was close to 2,5 C. All projects were based on the use of advanced reflective materials for pavements and buildings, use of greenery, advanced water systems and dissipation systems based on the use of a low temperature atmospheric sink like the ground or the water. We are developing more advanced and efficient materials for mitigation purposes based on the combined use of elastocaloric, thermoelectric and quantum dots components. Preliminary assessments shown that the cooling potential of the developed materials, when applied in the urban environment, may exceed 4 C.In parallel, together with my research colleagues we work on appropriate methodologies to evaluate the impact of climate change on energy, peak electricity demand, health, comfort and economy. We have developed and applied in real and large-scale projects, several methodologies to assess the impact of the urban heat island. In parallel, we have developed methodologies to assess the impact of urban mitigation technologies in cities. We have evaluated the impact of the urban heat island as well as of the proposed mitigation technologies in energy, peak electricity demand, comfort and health in the cities of Darwin, Sydney, Alice Springs in Australia and Athens, Greece.In parallel, I am working on the design and development of zero energy settlements and zero energy buildings. My main technological and scientific contribution addresses the area of passive and hybrid cooling of buildings, intelligent energy management, indoor environmental quality and advanced building materials. I have designed and applied many advanced energy conservation technologies and renewable energy systems in buildings and open spaces. I have designed, optimized, supervised and monitor more than 500 low energy or zero energy buildings in the world. I have performed research and design some advanced passive and hybrid cooling systems, envelope materials and daylight systems. The recent years, I am working on the development and optimization of zero energy settlements.I have worked in more than 500 major Low Energy Building Projects : (Major Projects : Fatima Sanctuary Portugal, Museum of Acropolis, Sport Facilities in London, Athens Olympic Village, Zero Energy Buildings in Cyprus, Zero Emission Settlements in Europe, etc
