A recent study suggests that implementing extensive green roof coverage on buildings could have a substantial impact on reducing temperatures at the city level and lowering energy expenses. Conducted by Indira Adilkhanova and Professor Geun Young Yun from Kyung Hee University, with co-authorship from UNSW Sydney Scientia Professor Mattheos (Mat) Santamouris, the research reveals that green roofs could potentially decrease summer temperatures in South Korea’s capital city by approximately 1°C. Additionally, it could lead to an almost 8% reduction in energy consumption for cooling purposes if maximum coverage is achieved.
