Ice storm in Quebec left 275,000 people without power and heating. Few weeks ago it was a cyclone Idai which was of course much more catastrophic disaster in Africa. Autonomous Mobile Energy Station (AMES) developed by Ascent Systems Technologies could prevent huge economic losses and even more importantly save many lives. Multiple modules can be deployed[…]
Too many people in the world, including in rich countries, do not have access to reliable and affordable energy source. Every year natural disasters cause devastation to infrastructure, leaving hundreds of thousands of people without energy. Many die because of heat or because they don’t have access to water. Our planet is getting warmer, ocean[…]
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[…]
