UBC Engineering team chooses AMES project

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 able to quickly delivered to any geographical location in the world, such as remote communities, temporary accommodations, but especially disaster sites in desperate need of power, heat, and hot water. Once delivered to the site, the module would be automatically deployed to serve as a fully autonomous source of uninterrupted clean energy regardless of the time of the day or weather conditions.
