A simple yet innovative form of roof ventilation could dramatically reduce the energy consumption and associated carbon footprint of suburban residential housing.

Researchers in Spain’s sun-drenched Valencia region have developed a modular roof ventilation that is capable of cooling down buildings passively without the need for further energy consumption. The ventilation system developed by researchers from Universitat Jaume I of Castellon (UJI) enhances heat dissipation by facilitating the flow of air through roofing structures using simple modular frameworks…
