Outdoor air temperature and cooling energy consumption can be significantly reduced by solar reflective material, research finds.
The next generation of supercooling materials can help keep cities cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
New building materials that reflect rather than absorb solar energy can reduce peak temperatures in our cities by up to four degrees.
Australian schools need better ventilation to improve student health and productivity, says new UNSW research.
Saudi Arabia’s Riyadh Royal Commission has engaged UNSW’s High Performance Architecture team to reduce the city’s temperatures and make it more sustainable.
