The Austrian Federal Office for Environmental Protection is carrying out the “Urban Heat Islands” project. The summary brochure has just been published, the main theme of which is the microclimate of cities and what can be done to combat the increasing warming in urban areas. For this, among several recommendations, it proposes the use of pergolas to provide public spaces with shaded areas that significantly improve comfort in terms of temperature. The Havana Pergola has been chosen as one of the best performance examples.
Prestigious experts have collaborated in the project, among others the Klima- und Energiefonds or the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA).
One more proof of the quality, the benefits and the proven effectiveness of the Havana Pergola.
