  • Urban green areas and roofs regulate temperature and reduce energy

    A new study highlights the positive effects of plants and trees in cities. Urban green areas provide shade and reduce temperature fluctuations, bringing average temperatures down. Covering roofs with plants, rather than black roofs, reduces the energy required to heat and cool buildings. The 'urban heat island' (UHI) effect is well-known. Many factors contribute to the formation of the UHI, ...
