Photovoltaic elements can be installed not only in open spaces but also in built-up environments. The latter is very promising, as in densely populated Europe, large-scale solar farms compete with many other land uses for the best spots and land availability may therefore become a problem in the future. While the generation of solar electricity in building integrated or roof-mounted installations has been the subject of numerous studies, commercial and industrial size PV carport applications are a rather new phenomenon in the DACH countries. This work closes that gap by providing some insight about the development in that specific area. Interesting and relevant facts are exposed the proof for its potential and future deployment. Beside the evaluation of general improvements of the PV technology as such, information about the market development in Austria, Germany and Switzerland can be found. Finally some trends regarding technology adaption and the awareness for renewable energy from the business and trade market segment are provided.
