Urban Albedo at the Urban Climate Walk

As part of on-going research into the relationship between Built Form, Microclimates & Critical Infrastructure, Dr Julie Futcher organised a City of London urban climate walking tour, to report the latest findings, alongside discussing the role of built form as a critical infrastructure in the climate emergency. During this, Dr Agnese Salvati, Research Fellow at Brunel University and a member of the Urban Albedo Consortium, discussed how urban surface geometry and materials impact on heat island intensity, thermal comfort and building energy performance.
