High solar reflectance (R sol ) lowers solar heat gain (0.3 - 2.5 µm) High thermal emittance (E) enhances thermal radiative cooling (4 - 80 µm) high solar reflectance + high thermal emittance = low surface temperature incident sunlight I reflected sunlight R sol I net emitted thermal radiation E σ (T 4 - T sky 4 ) opaque surface at temperature T convection conduction

© 2010 Ronnen Levinson (RMLevinson@LBL.gov) 11 Prototype concrete tiles Solar reflectance >= 0.40 (for conventional concrete tiles, SR ~ 0.1 – 0.4)
© 2010 Ronnen Levinson (RMLevinson@LBL.gov) 12 Vegetation Plants cool air by evaporating water – sensible heat → latent heat – most effective in arid climates Plant matter remarkably solar reflective – R ≈ 0.3 for leaves – R ≈ 0.4 – 0.5 for wood – reflectance results from cellular structure Trees can shade buildings Green roofs – high thermal mass – moderate solar reflectance – evaporative cooling – rainwater control – extensive (shallow soil) or intensive (deep soil)

© 2010 Ronnen Levinson (RMLevinson@LBL.gov) 18 Potential white-roof benefits to U.S. Retrofitting 80% of U.S. air- conditioned commercial buildings (2.1B m 2 ) would annually save – $735M – 6.2 Mt CO 2 (=1.2M cars) – 9.9 kt NO x (=0.6M cars) – 26 kt SO 2 – 126 kg Hg through energy conservation Product lifetime energy savings has present value of $11B New York Times, 30 July 2009
© 2010 Ronnen Levinson (RMLevinson@LBL.gov) 19 Global cooling “Global cooling” offers further CO 2 reductions – negative radiative forcing: high R sol lowers T, reducing both convection and thermal radiation into the atmosphere – 80% of reflected sunlight escapes into space – 100 m 2 (1000 ft 2 ) of white roof retrofit offsets 10 t of CO 2 emission (once) – retrofitting 80% of U.S. commercial buildings yields one-time offset of 200 Mt CO 2 (= 4M cars x 10 years)
