Abstract

Thermal behaviour of a building and so, the impact of green roof installation on the building energy consumption is not an easy subject. Thermal conductivity of used materials is an important factor, but also other variables as internal loads (lights, computers, people,..) or roof reflectance to solar radiation can play a very important role, especially in summer period. In the frame of the E2STORMED project it was installed a green roof on a public building and it was monitored the impact on energy consumption of the air conditioning system. The objective of this work is to show the results on energy saving of the green roof on buildings with Mediterranean climate, based on experimental data.
