Green roofs can reduce cooling demand in warm climate zones
The impact of green roofs on building energy performance was assessed in 15 climate zones. In most regions, the reduction in energy demand for cooling was greater than for heating.
In a context of climate change, rising temperatures lead to an increase in demand for air conditioning and therefore increase in energy demand. Nature-based solutions (NBS) are promoted as an alternative solution to improving building energy performance. Data are need...
