Bright is the new black—multi-year performance of high-albedo roofs in an urban climate
Environmental Research Letters
High-albedo white and cool roofing membranes are recognized as a fundamental strategy that dense urban areas can deploy on a large scale, at low cost, to mitigate the urban heat island effect. We are monitoring three generic white membranes within New York City that represent a cross section of the dominant white membrane options for US flat roofs: (1) an ethylene-propylene-diene monomer (EPDM) rubber membrane; (2) a thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) membrane; and (3) an asphaltic multi-plydoi:10.1088/1748-9326/7/1/014029 fatcat:uianbnkxhbaotisnfbs4lp4vty
