Bauder’s Green Roof Project Manager Chris Roddick discusses biosolar roofs and some of the key benefits that this synergy of technologies can deliver. A biosolar roof is the successful combination of biodiverse and extensive green roofs with photovoltaic systems, delivering a duality of technologies for environmental advantage and increased profitability for your client or building owner. Biosolar roofs deliver all the benefits of green roofs and solar power in a synergy of technologies that maximises PV output and the footprint for the green roof: – Cooling effect of vegetation increases solar output by up to 5% – Green roof element acts as ballast so waterproofing is not penetrated – Entire roof qualifies as biodiverse green roof by maximising area for vegetation – Shade tolerant species thrive under PV creating more diverse flora and fauna community Although designed primarily for new build applications where this synergy of solutions is often required to meet planning and BREEAM requirements; the biosolar system can also be retrofitted on many existing roofs without the need for any structural modification to the building.
