Cool Roofs in UAE

Posted by gcca on May 7, 2014

A recent article about the benefits of cool roofing installed at Masdar in the United Arab Emirates points out a lot of what we already know about cool roofing saving energy etc.  The article is worth a read, but especially for the great photo of the researchers walking on the white roof with bare feet!  Good visual evidence of the cooler surfaces created by reflective roofs.
