Wolfgang H. Driftmeier, President

Alternative Energy Systems



From the beginning in 1974, Alternate Energy Systems (AES) has put emphasis on excellent and innovative product design and quality workmanship. The founder of the company, John E. Hallberg had spent many years designing products for other manufacturers in the industry before he set out to design and manufacture a product line that represented, "...the combination of the best ideas from over 20 years of experience..." The result was products which were truly superior to those of his competitors - very quickly giving AES the reputation of being an innovative manufacturer of quality products.

Soon, the customer list comprised a representative cross-section of Fortune 500 companies across the U.S.

Through the years, AES has constantly added new products and has further improved the design of its existing products - keeping them consistently ahead of their competition.

Several designs, including those of LPG/Air Mixing Systems have been awared national and international patents.


Patents Over the course of the past 35 years, AES products have been installed in countries all around the world - from the extreme cold climates of the Arctic, to desert Middle East countries with extremely warm climates and extreme day/night temperature swings.

In the early 1990s, AES began exporting product to the Far East - mainly to China - where it used by utility companies as a primary fuel source in their effort to replace environmentally critical fuel sources with clean-burning natural gas.

Where natural gas pipelines do not (or not yet) reach a city, LPG/air gas, generated with AES' superior POM blending system, is used.

They can also be built for Industrial Risk Insurers (IRI) installations.

Approval DocumentsThe AES manufacturing operation is ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) -approved and authorized to apply "S," "U" and "R" stamps, and is also authorized to register products with the National Board of Boiler and Presure Vessel Inspectors. The ASME approval also includes approval of the AES Quality System, which is also registered under ISO9001:2008.

Business Systems

POM in Blending Valve At AES, new products and enhancements to existing products, are designed using 3-D (solid modeling) CAD software, allowing to "see" all components interacting with each other before the first prototype is ever built. This includes moving parts like the piston of the POM in the body of the blending valve.

Order SoftwareCustomer orders are procesed using a networked computer system, which also provides inventory control, work order procesing Bill of Materials, and all financial functions.

AES has had an Internet presence since 1997. Our website at has often been named one of the most informative sites in the industry. Everone at AES, including shop personnel has high-speed acess to the Internet and email.


The Future

In December of 1998, the founder of AES, John E. Hallberg, retired and the ownership of AES changed to Wolfgang Driftmeier. With his strong manufacturing background and experience in sales and marketing, Wolfgang focused the company on "...offering our customers the best product design, combined with quality workmanship at a competitive price - to their full satisfaction - and be at all times the vendor of their choice..."
Key personnel stayed on after the sale and additional staff was added to further strengthen customer service, engineering and manufacturing.

Since then, new products have been introduced, existing products have been improved, and sales and marketing efforts have been increased. New customers in the United States and in foreign countries have been acquired and several large-scale projects have been completed - some of them as prestigious as the gas supply system for Palm Jumeirah in Dubai.

Maufacturing capacity has been increased accordingly, and our facilities have been updated to be ready for further planned growth.
