Abstract
A major concern for sustainable development is urban systems energy consumption. A possible way to gain additional whole system energy efficiencies is to integrate rooftop greenhouses (iRTG) on unoccupied roofs. This work presents actual environmental data (2015–2018) and calibrated energy modelling results to analyze the energy symbiosis between an iRTG and the host building. Simulation results illustrate that annually 98 kWh/m2 of heating energy is passively recovered (84% during night time)...
