Heat Islands Newsletter

The term “heat island” describes built up areas that are hotter than nearby rural areas. Heat islands can affect communities by increasing summertime peak energy demand, air conditioning costs, air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, heat-related illness and mortality, and water quality. Communities can take a number of common-sense measures to reduce the effects of summertime heat islands. EPA's Heat Island website provides information on the heat island effect, its impacts, and the strategies that communities can take to reduce urban temperatures. EPA's Heat Island Newsletter keeps registrants informed with periodic announcements of funding opportunities, webcasts, publications, and events of interest to the urban heat island community.
