Descripción
The use of green façades in large urban areas has been used in search for more sustainable solutions for the urban development of cities and as an important tool to strike the effects of climate change. However, it is necessary to quantify the benefits and the impact on the urban thermal reduction achieved due to green façades, because the magnitude of thermal behavior that might be achieved is variable. The main goal of this paper is to quantify, analyze and compare the thermal behavior between a green façade and a bare façade. Both façades are located in the same microclimate in the city center of Madrid, Spain. The presented case study demonstrates the impact of green façades in the thermal reduction in urban areas. Data of climate variables such temperature, humidity, and air velocity were collected in situ, in different seasons and different daytime periods. The experimental research stage took place in two different seasons of the year: in summer, when the average temperatures are higher; and in autumn, when the average temperatures are lower. The climate variables were monitored during 6 days and at 3 different time periods. The measured values are in accordance with similar studies conducted in different countries. The comparative analysis of experimental results obtained between the green façade and the bare one shows that the green façade has a significant potential of thermal reduction in the surrounding urban microclimate, being an efficient tool for the sustainable urban development of cities.
