Sep 13, 2023

The Fondation Nexans has completed a social responsibility project to promote sustainable energy and education, in collaboration with Nexans Turkey, Dentaş Kağıt Sanayi A.Ş., and Cafer Sadık Abalıoğlu Foundation for Education and Culture. This project involves the implementation of a solar roof application at the Dentaş Special Education Application Center (DOÇEM), in Denizli, Turkey.

DOÇEM is a renowned school that provides special education for autistic children. It is designed to enable them to lead independent lives. The solar roof installation fully meet the power requirements of the school, substituting for conventional power sources. The solar energy has been generating power for various activities and learning spaces specially designed to cater to the needs of the children.

“ This project improves living standards of autistic children who are negatively affected by traditional heating and cooling systems. It will also be a step forward for a sustainable future for our planet, which represents the basis of Nexans vision. We are grateful to Dentaş Kağıt Sanayi A.Ş. for building this amazing school, the Fondation Nexans that has been supporting underpriviledge communities since 2013, as well as our business partners Elin A.Ş. and Arena Enerji for their contributions to this project.
