Abstract

Nowadays, Zero Energy Buildings (ZEBs) and Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEBs) can be achieve on one hand through the new construction, on the other hand, by implementing significant retrofit interventions on the existing buildings, both by means of active and passive strategies. In particular, among the existing passive strategies, green roofs can be considered an effective solution leading to not negligible energy savings, also countering the urban heat island phenomenon. In this research a green roof system was analyzed by studying its thermal behavior through an appropriate measurement setup, such as surface temperature probes, air temperature probes and heat flow meter plates. Comparing the thermal performance of the green roof to the traditional one, the advantages of this system in terms of thermal inertia and thermal transmittance were highlighted, as well as higher energy savings and better indoor thermal conditions for building users.
