The use of smart green technologies such as solar panels or green roofs on the top of buildings are identified as low-carbon infrastructure strategies. This work examines the roofs’ potential in a densely built-up context, analyzing the effects of smart green technologies on energy savings and thermal comfort conditions at district scale. The methodology presented can be used to accurately estimate solar energy potential and green roof potential on existing building stock at national, municipal, district and building level, with direct application in energy efficiency policy design. With the support of a place-based approach, the methodology was applied to a district in the city of Turin (Italy). A 3D model was created, some scenarios have been investigated, and priorities of interventions have been established mapping the spatial distribution of different parameters. From the results, it is emerged that there is a significant potential in Turin, and the use of green technologies especially in critical areas with solar technologies can promote a more sustainable development of the city. Solar modules and green roofs have been used alternatively to maximize the benefits. The applicability of these technologies can be integrated in the Municipal Energy-Environmental annex of the Building Regulations of the city of Turin.
