About Us

Athena Global Energy Solutions, Inc. (“AGES”) accelerates access to worldwide markets for multiple best-in-class renewable energy and environmentally sustainable technologies.  Leading technology relationships presently within the AGES “consortium” include the following:

ADVANCED LITHIUM POLYMER BATTERY: AGES is working with one of the world’s first solid-structure lithium battery companies. Individual cells have no liquid or gel electrolyte and, as a result of the integration of the electrodes, the cell impedance is reduced by a factor of 10 over competing technologies. This reduced impedance enables discharge rates two to three times faster than has previously been possible, which in turn, for example, will now enable distributed energy storage in high power density environments like data centers finally to become feasible.  These batteries have been evaluated by a number of Fortune 100 companies which have confirmed their performance characteristics.

ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEMS: The company licensing this technology to AGES has developed a proprietary technology utility-scale Lithium Polymer based Energy Storage System (utilizing managed battery arrays) ranging from 3kWh to 1mWh. One of the single greatest impediments to the adoption of alternative energy technologies has been the inability to store large amounts of electrical energy for release during times of peak demand.  The company has completed the design and development stage and the first large (1mWh) system has been grid-connected and is currently operating for a major utility customer in the U.S

FIXED AND FLEXIBLE SOLAR TECHNOLOGY: AGES has established a relationship with a unique provider of low cost flexible solar panel technology. The unique production process developed by this company has resulted in the most electrically efficient, commercially viable flexible solar panels yet demonstrated. These products are exciting as they contain no glass, but rather a moisture resistant polymer barrier that results in a lightweight, flexible, impact and hail resistant energy collector.  AGES is using this technology in several proprietary products; other companies and developers are designing other products incorporating these flexible photovoltaic technologies into fabrics, thus facilitating integration of solar panels into awnings, tents, and canvas products

WATER PURIFICATION TECHNOLOGIES: This innovative technology purifies high flow rates of water using “Electro-Coagulation”. A truck-mounted, portable process applies an electric current through a reaction chamber that is specially configured to remove specific contaminants such as acids, organics and organic particulates, metals, metal salts, bacteria and radioisotopes. The technology is already being utilized at several North American mining sites.  AGES has an exclusive license with this company to arrange for the manufacture, sales and distribution on the African continents, with preferred rights in other markets outside North America.

SUSTAINABLE FISHING TECHNOLOGY: This unique technology materially enhances the sustainability of the world’s commercial fisheries, and enhances the effectiveness and profitability of trawling fleets. Utilizing sensitive cameras, low-power LED lights and soon, perhaps, AGES revolutionary battery technology, the system withstands the temperature and pressure extremes of deep-sea trawling and allows an operator to visualize and identify what is entering his net. The video transmitted to the trawler from up to 5000 feet deep is analyzed by proprietary pattern recognition software to alert the operator that an unwanted catch is below.  A future enhancement to this technology will include a “Dynamic Excluder” which will give a commercial fisherman the ability to automatically sort their catch from above (i.e. removing endangered species or under-aged fish).

OTHER TECHNOLOGIES: AGES consortium memberships are expanding to include numerous other ancillary relationships such as:

Refrigerant Technology (a potential replacement for Freon and Freon equivalents)

Cement Remediation

Advanced Non-chemical, waterless commodes

A very low cost home construction system using collapsible recyclable materials easily assembled at a remote location by unskilled labor,

~$400 unique new personal solar collection, storage and distribution system with sufficient capacity to support the basic needs of a home in rural areas where grid connection is unreliable or simply unavailable.


AGES has spent considerable time and effort internationally, especially in the Republic of South Africa, working with prospective strategic partners to advance the prospects of these technologies both individually and, importantly in combination. Each of the technologies which AGES represents is a break-through and has prospective commerciality.

Imagine adding advanced lithium batteries to a proprietary energy storage system, powered by flexible high absorption solar panels or a small windmill, that in turn powers super-long lived LED lights. AGES has licensed relationships with every technology able to make possible whatever variation of that integrated system a local market may require.

A second, very real, application combines two new water technologies into an efficient and cost-effective continuous flow system to remediate contaminated effluents in very high volumes to agricultural reusability; it then converts to potability only the much smaller amount actually required. Its ability to operate continuously in third world markets having frequent power interruptions can be dramatically enhanced, of course, by integrating with an appropriately-sized Energy Storage System.
