Ayrton Energy is making waves in the world of energy innovation, with groundbreaking technology that enables hydrogen to be stored within an organic liquid.
This unique storage approach has the potential to change the way we generate and store energy, with implications for everything from powering homes and businesses to reducing reliance on fossil fuels.
The Calgary company’s proprietary technology has advantages over traditional hydrogen storage methods, according to a statement from the firm.
By storing hydrogen within an organic liquid, it can be transported and handled like gasoline, making it more practical and cost-effective than other storage methods.
Additionally, this approach makes hydrogen a more viable replacement for diesel generators and lithium-ion batteries, further reducing grid pressure.
Ayrton’s CEO, Natasha Kostenuk, is set to pitch the company’s technology at the Innovation Theatre during the upcoming Canadian Hydrogen Conference on April 26.
This event is slated to bring together industry leaders, policymakers, and innovators to explore the future of hydrogen and its role in the transition towards sustainable energy.
Kostenuk is an engineer with 20 years of experience in the energy service industry.
Last month Ayrton Energy joined Plug and Play Alberta, a program designed to bring global innovation to the province and provide guidance and support to businesses seeking to expand.
This program will culminate in the Plug and Play Alberta Expo in Calgary at the end of May, where Ayrton will have the opportunity to showcase its technology to a wider audience.
Last year, Ayrton moved into a new laboratory space located within the University of Calgary, enabling the company to continue its research and development efforts.
With an innovative approach to hydrogen storage and energy generation, Ayrton Energy is poised to play a significant role in the transition toward sustainable energy in Alberta and beyond.
Ayrton Energy was founded in Calgary in 2021 by Kostenuk and Brandy Kinkead, an expert in nanomaterials, including fuel cell technologies.
