ATLANTIC CURRENT ENERGY is in the business of designing, developing, and deploying renewable energy systems which generate and dispense electricity renewable sources. It presently has two primary projects in development:
The first project is an Electric Vehicle Charging Station (EVCS) with a Solar Component designed for Existing Retail Petroleum Sites. The microprocessor (MP) controlled EVCS has Level 2 and Level 3, also known as DC fast charging, and includes a load center for aggregating a charging load from a renewable energy source, from an electrical energy storage source, and energy directly the grid when storage is depleted. The objectives are to provide: a method to maximize the use of an alternate energy source in the aggregated charging load, to use an energy storage system to augment the aggregated charging load when the alternate source is insufficient and to prevent local grid brow-out; and to provide an EVCS which can be used retrofit and has probability of return on investment for retail petroleum station owners.
The second project is a Hydraulic Tidal Electrical Generator For Providing Hydrogen and Oxygen. The system is mounted on a floating platform which is towed and temporarily anchored over high velocity tidal streams. Tidal turbines use a hydraulic drive-train to drive a platform mounted electrical generator. The electricity is used by an electrolysis chamber to split water into hydrogen and oxygen, which are compressed and stored for use elsewhere.
The mission of the company is to commercialize energy producing devices which use fuel sources which are renewable, non-polluting, and cost-free.
