Abstract

Heat from solar radiation contributes to the high energy usage in the tropical climate regions. Extensive green roofs are well known efficient tools for heat insulation. This study designs a module system that is easy to implement and requires low maintenance for the extensive green roofs. The module system combined planting substrates and plants within a planting container which achieves the objectives, namely, light weight, easy shipping, good drainage, UV resistance, high water retention, and air permeability.
