Due to the increasing greening of buildings, especially in urban areas, a combination with photovoltaics could be increasingly implemented due to the interactions. A literature search on the current state of research should create a framework for this and provide an overview of previous research projects. During the evaluation of these, positive effects of the greening on the performance increase of photovoltaics could be determined. Suitability tests of certain plants for this have only been partially carried out and there is a need for further research. Two field trials, on a green roof and on a green façade, each combined with photovoltaic modules, are intended to provide additional data. The focus will be on the use and development of plants. Selected plants will be used and their development observed from April to September 2017. Several sensors measure soil moisture, soil temperature, air temperature, wind speed and precipitation during this period. The evaluation of the plant development, combined with the sensor data, is evaluated at the end. The results at the end of the investigation period show no clear tendencies for the green roof area, which was covered with a photovoltaic system. Plants with different location requirements regarding light conditions and water requirements have shown good values regarding plant development, which is why no uniform statement can be given regarding plant recommendations. The investigations on the façade greening with photovoltaics show good values for plants with a need for light from shady to sunny locations, which illustrates the different lighting conditions behind the photovoltaic system. In addition, a cooling effect of an average of 1.18 °C can be observed on the photovoltaic system due to the planting.
