Abstract

In the last decades progressively growing efforts were spent to identify strategies and to develop tools and techniques helpful to design sustainable, resilient, and low energy built environments. Green roofs have been proved as an effective passive technique to both mitigate the effect of solar radiation in summer and reducing thermal losses in winter, but their performance may vary over time, depending on the environmental conditions. Herein, an overview on performance assessment of green roofs is presented, after experimental activity and numerical modelling.
