- Abstract in English : Storm water taxes and the dander of floods increased significantly the last decades. Rainwater utilisation and rainwater retention have become important ecological and economical factors. Modern storm water management systems benefit from the special synergetic advantages that the combination of well-proven technologies like green roofs and rainwater storage facilities can offer. In Addition, the integration of these sustainable technologies in a comprehensive concept leads to a very fast amortisation of the invested money. In particular, this applies to extended green roofs on industrial and government buildings.
