Life HEROTile is a European research project that is funded through the Life programme which aims to improve the underlay ventilation of roof tiles. The purpose of this is to improve energy performance of buildings and thereby contribute to climate change mitigation and adaptation. The project will develop technologies and systems that can be readily replicated and mainstreamed. As roofs are the most exposed part of the building to solar radiation, which is associated with excessive heat in the attic, vented tiled roofs could be a good solution for passive thermal building insulation in both hot and mild climates. The main objectives of the Life HEROTile project are to:
Representatives from several countries are involved in the project, including Italy, France, Germany, Spain and Israel. Cerame-Unie and TBE will support the projects’ dissemination activities.
