Canopea Solar Decathlon
Canopea, a project in the Rhône-Alpes inspired nature
Within the framework of Solar Decathlon Europe 2012, the Ducerf Group, through its subsidiary Bois Profilés, was a partner in the Canopea project. An innovative project supported by Team Rhône-Alpes (France), overall winner of this edition.
Canopea is a 70m² house using only the sun as the main energy source. It combines a particularly tight structure and innovative energy management solutions (photovoltaic installation, power management panel, home automation system).
For the deck, ash wood treated by high temperature (THT ash) was chosen from CotéParc®, with B-Fix® invisible fasteners and several inventive finishings for the structure.
