Inventory and Potential Analysis of Green Roofs by BuGG

Inventory and Potential Analysis of Green Roofs by BuGG

German Association of Building Greening (Bundes-verband Gebäude Grün e.V. – BuGG), together with the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt – DLR), has carried out the research project “Inventory and Potential Analysis of Green Roofs” and developed a standardized procedure for the analysis of existing and potential green roofs.

The result of the project was the development of a software application that allows a fast and efficient analysis of urban roof surfaces.

In view of current climate developments (including overheating and extreme precipitation), green roofs continue to be a focus of attention. Many cities are therefore giving green roofs a particularly high priority in their climate change adaptation plans. A targeted expansion of the green infrastructure on urban roofs is therefore seen by many communities as an important component of future-oriented urban planning. An important basis for the development of local green roof strategies is therefore provided by specific geo data sets, which, in addition to the area and location of existing green roofs, also identify suitable roof areas for subsequent greening.
