Because of their many energy-saving and environmental benefits, green roofs are a promising technology for energy-efficient buildings. In a green roof, a layer of vegetation covers the surface of a roof to provide shade, cool indoor and outdoor temperatures, storm water management, and more. This course describes the benefits of green roofs, estimated saving and market potential of green roofs, technology performance of green roofs, warranties, standards and codes related to green roofs. This course is based on the document Green Roofs, DOE/EE-0298.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
