    In studies of this project we have explored many possibilities to reach the BEPOS level with advanced simulations ( Cogeneration , rapeseed oil sector , geothermal, photovoltaic cells different locations ...).
    The objectives have pushed us to excel . The client ( Pays de la Loire , department of schools ) was the engine, while remaining extremely vigilant about the appropriateness of the techniques and their maintenance.En consultation with the MO , successful systems ( bioclimatic space and Canadian , heat pumps , photovoltaic cells, solar hot water) are best suited to the site, and the management and maintenance of a building of this type. Such synergy has been possible thanks to the cohesion of the whole of construction players .
