To compensate the lack of green spaces in urban areas, flat roofs are increasingly being transformed into green roofs. These flat roofs are also suitable for installing photovoltaic systems for the production of renewable energy. This master thesis discusses a combined use of semitransparent photovoltaic panels with an intensive green roof. A pergola with semitransparent photovoltaic panels is used for the experiment. Underneath the photovoltaic panels, 12 different vegetable plants and herbaceous plants grow. After monthly observations and concluding biometric evaluations, following research questions could be answered. -What effect does the amount of shade created by the photovoltaic panels of the photovoltaicroof garden have on vegetable plants and herbs in regard to vitality, plantgrowth, leaf density, and inflorescence? -To take action against climate change, efforts are being made to reduce CO2. Which of the measured parameters can be used to determine the CO2-binding potential? How much CO2 was stored by vegetable plants and herbs during the 2014 growing season? The results after the 2014 growing season show that maximum growth was achieved in the brightest light areas of the photovoltaic-roof garden. The minimum amount of growth was observed in the shady areas of the PV-roof garden. Ocimum kiliman. x basilicum showes the best results in all light areas. Eruca sativa showed good results, plants grow poorly in the shady areas of the PV-roof garden. Less suitable is Raphanus sativus var. sativus. With regard to CO2 storage capacity, it has been found that biomass can be used to determine the stored CO2. The highest storage potential is achieved by Ocimum kiliman. x basilicum. The Plant shows an average CO2 storage capacity of 1607.98 g.
