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 & Navigation in space applications and utilizing principles of Systems Architecture, AST has developed a concept of integrated energy system (IES). We created a software suite which includes program to determine an optimal system configuration as well as advanced control program, utilizing real-time data analysis and model predictive algorithm. Together with onboard sensors and communication equipment the software provides for remote system performance monitoring, local environment data collection, and information mapping.
The IES can serve as uninterrupted source of clean energy for residential, commercial or industrial applications. It can also be configured in a compact mobile package and delivered to any geographical location on demand.
IES does not require any fossil fuels therefore produces zero emissions. IES is at least twice 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 not require large area for solar collectors or drilling the ground.
The system can operate in areas with no grid and/or natural gas connection and can work in completely autonomous mode. Tha system cn be easily reconfigured to meet specific needs and scaled for increased capacity.
UBC Mechanical Engineering team chose Ascent Mobile Energy System (AMES), the concept developed by Ascent Systems Technologies for their project. AMES 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 fits 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[…]
