The Global Cool Cities Alliance announced a timely meeting titled “Cool Roofs for Cooler Summers”, a forum hosted by the Environmental and Energy Study Institute that took place on July 21 and included discussion between leading technical, policy and program experts on the benefits of cool roofs. Cool roofs can lower a building’s net energy use (cooling savings minus winter heating penalty) by 10 to 20 percent, if the building is air conditioned. Multiple buildings using cool roofs can also help reduce the overall urban heat island effect in cities. Download the attached press release from the Global Cool Cities Alliance for more information.
