Green Roof Potential Maps
Green roof registers are interactive maps that show in detail for each building in a city how suitable the roof surface is for a green roof. Homeowners can thus find out about the suitability of their roof.
Advantages of the green roof potential Map
Why a Green Roof Potential Map?
Climate change is causing undeniable problems in densely built-up areas and is leading, among other things, to heat islands in the city and the increased occurrence of heavy rainfall to an increase in flood events. In addition, rising levels of air pollutants and particulate matter are increasingly becoming a problem in municipalities.
Green roofs can contribute to solving these problems, but the dormant potential is rarely known. A green roof potential register is an ideal instrument to raise awareness of the topic "green roof" and its advantages.
Advantages for municipalities and districts
The green roof potential map offers advantages to municipalities and regions: Filtering of air pollutants & fine dust, reduction of heavy rain runoff, better microclimate, less heat islands & visual townscape improvement through green roofs. This creates a sustainable, resilient urban landscape.
Advantages for citizens
Citizens benefit from green roofs: Thermal insulation reduces heating costs in the winter season, while in summer the roofs reduce the heat load and create pleasant coolness. The natural air conditioning reduces noise and improves the quality of living. Visually, green roofs beautify the cityscape by transforming grey areas into living green. They also save on sewage fees because they store rainwater and relieve the burden on the sewage system. Green roofs create a more comfortable, healthier and aesthetically pleasing living environment for citizens.
Solarpotenzialkataster basieren auf dreidimensionalen Oberflächenmodellen. Gängige Höhendaten aus Laserscanning- oder Bildflugdaten lassen sich mit speziell zu diesem Zweck entwickelter Software der tetraeder.solar automatisiert in ein 3D-Modell überführen und dort gemeinsam mit den Daten aus den Liegenschaftskarten (ALK/ALKIS) weiterverarbeiten. Die Laserscandaten können je nach Bundesland kostenfrei oder gegen ein geringes Entgelt verwendet werden.
The interactive map application enables the representation of the suitability of buildings for the usage of solar energy in a municipality and supports the calculation of the suitable roof area.
Detection of potential open spaces for photovoltaic parks. Takes into account economic, regional planning and individual aspects and enables contact and negotiations with owners and municipalities.
The craftsmen's portal brings interested citizens and local craftsmen's businesses together by making the range of services and contact details available for viewing.
The solar roof exchange is interesting for those who do not want to buy their own system. House owners have the opportunity to offer their roof for lease to interested parties who would like to operate a PV system.
The offer includes on-site and online lectures, the creation of flyers and information brochures.
