This short review is based on an overview of the most recent works of the literature related to climatization in buildings. A total number of 40 relevant papers that have been published in the last years in prestigious international journals have been reviewed with the aim of showing the current state of the art in this field. It is very important as the new European regulations that will be applied in the next years in the construction of buildings, aiming to achieve nearly-Zero Energy Buildings (nZEBs), will require a multidisciplinary work in the different areas that affect the design of buildings. For this reason, it is relevant the envelope, the user behavior, the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning applied (HVAC) and the influence of the meteorological conditions, among others. But apart from this, it would be very interesting any other alternative which helped to reach these targets. This article proposes the possibility of using Model Predictive Control (MPC) besides to Renewable Energies in order to optimize the energy management of air-conditioning in public and office buildings through a radiant floor by solar system and high-performance heat pump systems for their heating / cooling. In this paper, a short review is initially exposed where the different "Input data and information" are analyzed, to end up proposing an Operative for a Predictive Control using these Renewable Energies.
