UMEP 6: Climate-sensitive planning (scenario modelling) of outdoor thermal comfort with SOLWEIG


The purpose of this tutorial is to explain how to conduct climate-sensitive scenario planning with SOLWEIG. The video explains how to develop different outdoor thermal comfort scenarios by modelling the effects of four heat mitigation strategies: (1) tree planting, (2) shading devices (buildings and artificial canopies), (3) green roofs and (4) vertical greenery systems (or green walls/facades).
