These are combined to form the HEC-TINA Energetic Module. It supplies the necessary power when the sun isn't shinning and can also supply hydrogen fuel for vehicles. This combination is the culmination of a dream that I have had for many years. This will help the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) area to reduce pollution and increase the quality of life. It also prepares HEC-TINA to start commercial production of products to be placed in substantial numbers around the world. I would like to thank the investors and Pedro Blach for helping make this dream come true.”
