Bibliometric analysis and landscape of actors in passive cooling research

Aug 1, 2023

This paper presents the trends and actors from research publications covering passive cooling technologies. The unprecedented growth in the provision of cooling is posing a significant risk to energy systems and the natural environment, making passive cooling an important alternative to air conditioners. This paper provides a first necessary step towards better understanding the contribution of passive cooling. By conducting a bibliometric analysis on passive cooling technologies, first, it identifies the relevant literature through structured searches. Second, it examines the actors in the field (i.e. countries, authors, research communities and funders). Further, the main researchers by specific passive cooling categories are analysed in detail in terms of the trajectory of publication and author clusters, including novel visualisations of productivity and collaboration.
