The importance of roofing seems to be growing with each passing day. Roofing innovation is a popular topic in worldwide conventions and attracts a lot of attention both from the industrialists as well as contractors. There is an emphasis on unlocking the huge energy potentials which lie latent in a roof through processes like rain water harvesting and solar power generation. However, regular maintenance of the roof is necessary to ensure a smooth flow of energy. An energy powerhouse
Roofs have tremendous energy potential and can harness energy in a natural way as well as help you to conserve it. A roof can be used to install solar panels and harvesting gutter systems and can also be used to create terrace gardens which provide natural cooling. The term ‘Evapotranspiration’
is now being employed for utilizing green plants for energy generation.
A few researchers describe the process as “In summer, a considerable proportion of the solar energy entering houses does so through the roof. However, if we landscape a roof that already has traditional insulation, to a certain extent we can prevent the house from heating up. Plants absorb water through their roots and release water in the form of vapour through their leaves. And they get the energy they need for this from the sun. That way, rather than getting inside houses, solar energy is used by the plants for photosynthesis and evapotranspiration. That prevents the temperature on the outside surface of the house from rising. According to the data, with this method the heat that gets into buildings through the roof can be reduced by 75%, resulting in reduced use of cooling systems.
The researchers add further “We have seen that in very sunny places and in the absence of rain the green roof dries out completely within a week unless it is watered (with a green roof about 10cm thick or less and most of them have these features). And in that case it is of no use whatsoever. What is more, the plants and earth absorb radiation better than gravel so the need for cooling systems increases.” Specifically, a dry green roof can increase the need for cooling by 65% compared with a traditional roof.” There are various possibilities or harnessing energy creatively on a roof.” About the company:
