To see the Earth is not flat one must rise above the horizon.
WHAT WE DO
Ascent Systems Technologies (AST) is an integrated technology solutions provider in the areas of energy and resource management, adaptive control, intelligent networks and systems performance optimization. Our aim is to minimize and eventually remove the need for fossil fuels consumption, thus preserving nature and the planet. It is not just solar, or geothermal, or heat pump – it is more. AST solutions bridge the gap between today’s technology and tomorrow’s needs and aspirations.
INSPIRED BY ROCKET SCIENCE
Drawing on our experience in Guidance and Navigation in space applications and applying principles of Systems Architecture, AST has developed an integrated energy system (IES). It has also created a suite of software programs which includes predictive algorithm to determine an optimal system configuration as well as real-time adaptive control for the IES. The software suite assists in strategic decision making and also provides means for remote data monitoring, gathering, storing and analysis.
The IES is an uninterrupted source of clean energy for residential homes, commercial buildings or industrial facilities. It can also be configured in a compact mobile package and delivered to any geographical location.
Unlike conventional systems IES does not require any fossil fuels therefore produces zero emissions. IES is more efficient than any comparable system. Unlike stand-alone renewable energy systems IES is capable of providing energy 24 hours a day 365 days a year. It does nort require large area for solar collectors.
The system system is independent of the grid or pipeline and can work in completely autonomous mode. It is also reconfigurable and scalable.
UBC Mechanical Engineering team chose Universal Energy Module (UEM), the concept developed by Ascent Systems Technologies for their project. UEM combines advantages of state of the art solar technology, smart energy storage and energy booster in one integrated package. Thanks to the optimized configuration the system will fit in a small shipping container to be[…]
Ascent Systems Technologies achieved a significant milestone and made an important step toward its goal of creating uninterrupted source of clean energy. On May 16, 2017 it began installation of the Integrated Thermal Hydronic System (ITHS) at the Centre for Interactive Research on Sustainability (CIRS) at UBC in Vancouver. The system consists of a solar[…]
Ascent Systems Technologies became an affiliate member of the BC chapter of the Canadian Council for International Cooperation (BCCIC). BCCIC mission is to engage its members and others to share knowledge, build relationships, and develop their capacity towards achieving sustainable global development. One of the important goals of the BCCIC is to increase public awareness[…]
Ascent Systems Technologies (AST) collaborates with a number of strategic partners: National Research Council of Canada (NRC) Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) University of British Columbia (UBC) Canadian Solar Technologies (CSTI) Project Green Architecture (Projectgreen) We are always looking for and open to new partnerships.
Ascent Systems Technologies (AST) and University of British Columbia (UBC) entered into a 4-year Collaborative Research & Development (CRD) Agreement to develop Integrated Thermal Hydronic System (ITHS) with Adaptive Control. The project is funded in part by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) of Canada. Despite significant advances in efficiency of solar technologies[…]
