PET software was designed to measure and define green roof performance in different climate zones.
Urbanscape Performance Evaluation Tool is based on the results of a 2-year in-situ performance study of different types of Urbanscape Green Roof Systems in different climate conditions. The study “Thermal and hydrological response of green roofs in different climatic conditions” was made by Urbanscape Green Solutions Team of experts in collaboration with Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Ljubljana. Based on the results of this extensive study we are now able to define economic and environmental advantages of a green roof in terms of:
Energy performance in summer (cooling effect)
Energy performance in winter (thermal insulation)
Rainwater or stormwater management performance
Performance in reducing the heat island effect
The results have been used to prepare special software package “Urbanscape® Performance Evaluation Tool” or simply PET”. The PET helps current and potential users/owners, urban planners, architects and designers to get to know the real performance of a green roof in detailed numeric and graphic data reports.
With Urbanscape Green Roof Performance Evaluation Tool we are now a step closer to really understand the benefits green roofs offer, energy savings they provide and overall environmental impact of buildings in highly populated urban areas, which are facing several ecological and environmental issues.
