VANCOUVER, B.C. – Hillcrest Petroleum Ltd. (the “Company” or “Hillcrest”), has expanded the Company’s involvement and responsibilities within the ALSET partnership for the US Licensing and European Union marketing and deployment agreements. The partnership will exclusively license, market and deploy US patented technology in the US and EU and is expected to expand the markets as opportunities arise. ALSET Innovations Ltd. is a private incorporated joint venture company owned by Hillcrest and its partner.
Hillcrest’s role, through ALSET, has been expanded to include responsibility for business planning and leading direct discussions with potential technology development partners. Compensation for the expanded role, including fees and bonus provisions, will be addressed in definitive agreements.
The Technology has been demonstrated in laboratory tests to substantially improve power generation and electrical vehicle efficiencies. Potential applications include electric vehicles and power generation applications such as wind turbines.
“The ALSET Partnership is moving quickly to consolidate and expand its role in representing this exceptionally promising clean energy technology, presenting a larger opportunity for Hillcrest.” Don Currie, Hillcrest CEO states “Developing and implementing the overall business plan for the technology, enables Hillcrest to drive it’s energy transition strategy more quickly and effectively than previously anticipated. We will continue to advise as developments happen, or material events occur.”
ABOUT THE COMPANY
Hillcrest is a Canadian oil and gas producer pursuing an energy transition strategy focusing on clean energy technology with potential to substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions to limit global warming.
Hillcrest intends to license, market and deploy US Patented clean energy technologies, by way of exclusive agreement in the United States and European Union.
The technologies have been shown to substantially increase efficiency of conventional electrical generators in laboratory testing. This provides the potential for wind turbines to be significantly smaller for the same power generation or power generated from current wind turbine installations could potentially be substantially increased. In full scale electric vehicle applications, the technology has the potential to extend the range well past the industry average of 400 miles on a single battery charge.
Wide application of this technology has the potential to significantly reduce reliance on fossil fuel energy and accelerate the transition to carbon free energy. Efficiencies from adopting this new technology could potentially provide lower cost electricity for remote communities by substantially reducing diesel fuel requirements and accelerate a transition to electric vehicles by increasing their range from a battery charge.
