Photovoltaic canopies : an innovative step

Concerned with reducing the energy impact of its activities, Air France wished to create a renewable energy production installation at its Valbonne site. Following a study, Cap Ingelec proposed an innovative project for parking canopies equipped with photovoltaic panels, enabling the company to benefit from its status as a producer without the constraints linked to investments. The proposed project centred around an overall solution based on a "third party investor" judicial and financial package, associated with a design-creation-operation-maintenance contract. The entire project was managed by Cap Ingelec and Astris France: studies, financing, administrative authorizations, creation, electrical grid connection application, operation… This project is today operational and is connected to the national electricity grid, producing 100% renewable energy.
