Greensphere on ABC National Radio 774 05-01-16

Radio imageGreensphere’s Chris Jensen was interviewed on ABC National Radio by Bernadette Young on the topic of Roof colour and how it can impact temperatures. The answer of course varies by location and building type, however absorption of solar radiation can significantly add to cooling loads. Fortunately the colour of the surface can have a big impact on the amount of radiation absorbed and transferred into the building. Solar performance of buildings is critical to low energy and comfort, and always gets more coverage in the summer months.
