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 the roof to provide shade, cool indoor and outdoor temperatures, provide storm water management, and more.

In this course you will learn about the benefits of green roofs and the types of buildings and roofing systems that are suitable for retrofit, as well as new-build installations of a green roof.
