The urbanisation and population growth are resulting in a significant increase in energy consumption in buildings, leading to a substantial increase in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. During the operation of buildings, a massive amount of GHG emissions are released due to the process of building heating, cooling, and lighting, which accounts for the most significant proportion in building energy consumption. Therefore, energy-efficiency design and operation will play an essential role in reducing GHG emissions in buildings. Facade systems are one of the most critical aspects regarding the efficient management of heating, cooling, and lighting energy in buildings. A facade system is a barrier..
