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.

Canadian Flight Centre
The new near zero-carbon building opened at the Kamloops airport on June 24, 2022. The all-electric building features 100 kW rooftop solar PV array, heat pumps, in-floor hydronic heating and many other energy efficiency features. It is also equipped with chargers for electric vehicles and will be home for the first flying school in Canada[…]
We are in the final stretch!
A consortium of Canadian companies, of which Ascent is a proud member, has made it to the final phase of the Department of National Defence competition Innovation for Defence Excellence and Security (IDEaS) to build an efficient integrated energy-water-waste solution for the Canadian Armed Forces relocatable temporary camp. DND News Release.
Preparing for Disasters
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[…]
A new way of clean energy delivery anywhere in the world
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[…]
