Marketing Text Green roofs are good tools for achieving storm-water management; longer life for roof membrane; lower energy costs; mitigation of the urban heat island effect; habitat for urban wildlife; amenity value, aesthetics & marketing. Any given green roof delivers multiple benefits, primary drivers tend to be economic, insulation or more significantly reduction of heat flows into buildings during hot weather reduces energy cost. Now more than ever energy efficiency will see significant increased GLOBAL demand for green roofs. You need a skilled workforce to supply demand & this project does that.
Summary The project team built accredited (by LANTRA) training programmes that developed workforce skills to install & maintain a green roof that hold solar panels as well as stimulate pollinators.
Description The project has identified the areas of expertise required for installing and maintaining green roofs that hold solar panels. This is primarily based in the EU member states of Austria and Switzerland. The project team has undertaken technical information gathering activity. At the outset project partners undertook research activity in order to identify the current market conditions that exist throughout the continent which the qualifications must cater for. The project was promoted in both Europe and the wider World via the project web site and social media.
