To see the Earth is not flat one must rise above the horizon.
Bring uninterrupted clean energy on demand to people anytime anywhere in the world
INSPIRED BY ROCKET SCIENCE
Drawing on experience in aerospace and defence systems Ascent Systems Technologies created a totally new way of delivering uninterrupted source of clean energy on demand to any location in the world – Autonomous Mobile Energy System (AMES). We do it by integrating several leading-edge clean energy generation and energy storage technology components in a seamlessly operating system and applying advanced tools of system architecture, machine learning and predictive control. With built-in sensors and secure communication link the system supports continuous performance monitoring, local environment parameters collection, and information mapping.
Unlike conventional mobile energy solutions, AMES does not require any fuel and produces zero emissions. Compared to a typical renewable energy solution with a similar capacity, AMES has a third of the footprint and can be easily relocated.
AMES fits in a standard shipping container, can be delivered to remote and hard to reach areas and rapidly deployed for disaster recovery, to support humanitarian missions, research and exploration as well as many other applications around the world.
The power grid is not required, meaning no effect on its stability and no risk of disruption due to its failure or a malicious attack. AMES can operate completely autonomously which makes it a solution of choice in pandemic or other life-threatening environments, as well as during high-impact events.
NASA reports: In 2021, Hurricane Ida left over 1 million people without power, tornadoes tore across the American Midwest, volcanoes forced people to evacuate their homes, wildfires covered the American West and unusual flooding wreaked havoc on Central Europe. Some characteristics of natural hazards, such as hurricanes, floods and wildfires, have been historically predictable and have[…]
Ascent Mobile Energy System (AMES) is a concept developed by Ascent Systems Technologies as a new way of delivering clean energy to any location in the world. AMES is a self-contained module, combining advantages of the state-of-the-art solar technology, smart energy storage and energy booster. The system configuration is optimized using predictive algorithm. The brain[…]
We are happy to announce that Ascent Systems Technologies has been registered as a British Columbia business eligible for tax credits for companies engaged substantially in the R&D activity. That means private investors – individual or corporate – who invest in Ascent, will be able to receive 30% refund on their investment.
The consortium of Canadian companies, of which Ascent Systems Technologies is a part of, is chosen as one of the Round 2 winners of the Department of Defence IDEaS (Innovation for Defence Excellence and Security) Pop-Up City contest. The consortium is now advancing to the Round 3 of the contest to design and build an[…]
The International Minerals Innovation Institute (IMII), with support from their members and the Challenge Dialogue System Network, is putting forth the Alternative Energy Systems Challenge. This Innovation Challenge is seeking solutions to be piloted at a mine site in Saskatchewan. Mining has large energy consumption requirements and is also under mandate to reduce its GHG[…]
Ascent’s proposal for Autonomous Mobile Energy System (AMES) was one of the winners of the DND contest to develop integrated energy, water and waste management system for the Canadian Armed Forces redeployable temporary camps (Pop up City Contest).
Autonomous Mobile Energy System and Control of Ascent Systems Technologies has successfully passed the first stage of the Breakthrough Energy Solutions Canada (BESC) evaluation process. BESC is a partnership with Breakthrough Energy, aimed at accelerating the development of clean energy technologies with the potential for substantial pollution reductions globally.
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[…]
