Cool Roofs in the EU

This project is being funded by the Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) program of the European Union which was created by the European Commission in order to promote better conditions for a sustainable energy future in areas like renewable energy, energy-efficient buildings, industry, consumer products and transport.

Cool Roofs project was completed in 2012.

A European Cool Roofs Council was established with the completion of the project where more current information about Cool Roofs in Europe can be found:
