Abstract:The megacities are facing problems like increase in population, enhancement of environmental pollution, collapsing of traffic systems, and dysfunctional of waste management. The vertical extensions in the built-in-systems welcomed urban heat island (UHI) effect and enhance 5-10% more energy consumption. Thus, mitigation of UHI can be done by; i. reduction of albedo effect by introducing rooftop integrated photovoltaic (RiPV) systems, and ii. introduction of evapo-transpiration systems like water bodies, greeneries, green roof & green wall. Long term studies showed that introduction of RiPV systems in built-in-system not only reduce the albedo effect but also compensate the additional energy demand.
