Both parties were seeking to redefine the energy sector through the application of game-changing technologies.
A reduced price for oil and gas, and a new climate change treaty, made it possible to quickly assemble a very skilled team and a global support network.
Canada is a stable, democratic country with an open vibrant economy. It is home to a third of the world’s hydrocarbons, and the largest bitumen reserves in the world.
Canadian experts lead the world in down-hole combustion and integrated reservoir management. The challenge is to use these extensive human and mineral resources, and the massive built infrastructure, as a bridge to a clean and green energy economy.
An industry champion seemed essential! Thus the first big step in developing Hygenic Earth Energy was to create Proton Technologies – a new business dedicated to proving, patenting and commercializing the new technology.
Because the I.P. is owned by a separate corporation without any field operations and assets, the IP remains secure and well defended, world wide. In regions where HEE is of interest, a regional Affiliate can be established. Canada is the first regional Affiliate.
Each regional affiliate will be majority locally-owned, and will have perpetual exclusive rights to use and license HEE technology within the regional boundaries. All I.P. produced by Affiliates will be transferred to Proton International, and shared with other regions.
Each Affiliate will initiate and support a Regional Centre of Excellence (RCE). The RCE will be an ‘open tent’, welcoming participation by all sectors. One role for the RCE is to conduct research on land and infrastructure, and to incorporate HEE into the regional energy road map. All RCEs will periodically sponsor regional round-tables and think-tank sessions.
RCEs may also periodically host an Iconoclast Symposium for transferring knowledge, planning research projects, and exploring key questions.
To this end we are dedicating a percentage of Proton revenue to a program called HydroActive.
HydroActive is a no-strings grant program designed to support application of HEE in special-needs locations, including urban regions suffering from severe air quality problems, and urban regions where energy costs and emissions are especially high.
