Some years ago we published a work that presented a sensitivity analysis
of building's energy performance in a hot-humid climate (Tel Aviv)
to the values assigned to various design parameters among them Roof
color. It was done for a standard heavily constructed apartment building
block, using the simulation model ENERGY developed by Shaviv and Shaviv.
The results show that the influence is dependent on the roof insulation
and can be positive or negative during different seasons.
For more details check:

Geometrical Design  Parameters in Hot-Humid Climate", "ASHRAE Trans.",
