Technological and performance issues in an intervention of retrofitting through greenery systems
This research is aimed at evaluating the energy performance of an existing building in
Mediterranean climate, and to assess the benefit coming from various retrofit solutions of the
building envelope, such as green roof and facades. By means of dynamic simulations, validated
with experimental results, the reduction in both internal air temperature and cooling load was
estimated. In addition, the impact of the green shielding on the windows in terms of indoor
visual comfort was assessed, and suitable soluitons were envisaged.
