Many innovations focus on improving the sustainability of households. In the cities a lot of these are installed on the roof, such as Solar Panels, Solar Water Heaters, PVT collectors, heat pumps and green roofs. The Pavilion Roof reshapes the roof to a modular surface, on which these systems can be easily installed.
There is an enormous potential in the empty rooftops in our cities. Currently unused square meters are valuable and can play a crucial part in the energy transition. For instance, they can be used to generate green energy, harvest sustainable heat, serve as water storage, counteract an ‘Urban Heat Island Effect’ and contribute to the ecosystem of the city. In other words, all the installations required to unlock the potential of our roofs are already available on the market! The problems that occurs: there is no solution to easily combine these sustainable installations on the rooftops.
