O'Connor, Thomas P. Green Roof Research through EPA's Regional Applied Research Effort. Presented at Low Impact Development Symposium, Saint Paul, MN, August 18 - 21, 2013.

Impact/Purpose:

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Regional Applied Research Effort (RARE) allows the Regions of the EPA to choose research projects to be performed in partnership with EPA’s Office of Research and Development (ORD). Over the last decade, several green roof projects were initiated and performed in different EPA Regions, including Regions 2, 3 and 8. These projects provide results for different climatic conditions and a variety of green roof systems and sizes.

Description:

ABSTRACT The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Regional Applied Research Effort (RARE) allows the Regions of the EPA to choose research projects to be performed in partnership with EPA’s Office of Research and Development (ORD). Over the last decade, several green roof projects were initiated and performed in different EPA Regions, including Regions 2, 3 and 8. These projects provide results for different climatic conditions and a variety of green roof systems and sizes. The project in Region 3 was performed by the Pennsylvania State University (Berhage et al., 2009). Primarily this project was performed through the monitoring of replicate experimental setups using small-scale buildings exposed to the elements.
