Spotlight: The Center for Environmental Innovation in Roofing (CEIR)

By James R. Kirby - February 2014 - Roofing


Spotlight: CEIR

The Center for Environmental Innovation in Roofing (CEIR) is focused on developing and expanding RoofPointCM, the only rating system for environmentally friendly roof systems. RoofPoint includes 23 credits within five strategic categories — energy management, materials management, water management, durability/life-cycle management, and innovation in design. Energy management and durability/life-cycle management account for two-thirds of the credits, illustrating that energy efficiency and a long service life are important components to sustainability of roof systems. More information is available at www.RoofPoint.org.

The center's PV Taskforce has published a number of documents that provide high-level thought guidelines about rooftop PV installations. The taskforce has developed PV racking and attachment criteria for all low-slope roof systems, including sprayed polyurethane foam (SPF) and low-slope metal panel roof systems, and it is developing criteria for asphalt-shingle roof systems. More information is available at www.roofingcenter.org/special/PV.

For more information on the center's role as an industry advocate, contact the staff at info@RoofingCenter.org.
