 Summary:
 Improving the energy efficiency in buildings in the Republic of Serbia has been recognized as an area with the greatest potential for reducing overall energy consumption. It also has an indirect impact on improving the quality of life and comfort in buildings, protecting the environment and reducing the emission of harmful gases, as well as reducing the cost of heating. Permanent population increase resulted in the urbanization process that had different consequences for the quality of life and sustainable future. Green roofs in urban areas of developed countries have become a legal obligation and policies and programs that support the greening of roofs are aimed at to preserve the environment and ensure the sustainable development of cities. This paper deals with an analysis of the influence of green roofs on the energy performance of existing buildings in the center of Belgrade. One of the conclusions of this research points out that it is necessary to perform research studies and experimental analyses for the application of green roofs in our climatic conditions. Thus, the research focus should be on legal regulation that would establish calculation and design standards for green roof systems.
