Cool Roofs Indonesia is one of ten Boost Awardees for our Million Cool Roofs Challenge, working in Indonesia. Here, Beta Paramita, an Asst. Professor at Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia (UPI), in collaboration with Milenium Solution, USA to produce MS-Thermashield cool paint in Indonesia. The collaboration also involved Ravi Srinivasan, a Professor at The University of Florida to help building energy efficiency analysis and strategies. They tell us more about their approach to scaling up the deployment of sustainable and quality cool roofs, and their experience of the Challenge so far.
" Our project approach centers institutional collaboration, between the university and the municipal government or the ministries. In particular, we are working with the Ministry of Villages, Development of Disadvantaged Regions and Transmigration of Republic of Indonesia to replicate this project in rural and underdeveloped areas.
