2012 in Review--2013 Free Energy Predictions
Though the year didn't bring several technologies to market as I had
predicted last year (due to "you don't deserve it yet" lack of
great progress was made. We highlight some of the leading trends, both upward,
as well as some of those that are fading, gratefully.
Pure Energy Systems News
In 2012, once again, Andrea Rossi's E-Cat dominated free energy news
in volume of coverage, but this year a number of other Low Energy Nuclear
Reaction (LENR -- colloquially called "cold fusion", which is
probably inaccurate since "transmutation" is the likely mechanism, not
"fusion") technologies rose to prominence as well, most notably Defkalion
Though they didn't make it into the news much, Nanospire's
story of cavitation being a driver to use Zero Point Energy to
facilitate the nuclear event, captured our imagination about a new prime mover
for the 21st century.
As I prepared the LENR-Weekly
compilation of news from around the world each week over this past year,
typically around a third to a half of the 30 to 60 stories each week were about
Rossi's E-Cat and Hot-Cat, with an increasing proportion being about other LENR
companies, projects, and technologies; or about the field in general.
For me, and I think for the field in general, the most exciting development has
been the emergence of the Martin
Fleischmann Memorial Project (MFMP) over at http://QuantumHeat.org
which seeks to replicate Francesco Celani's open source cell and make a kit that
can be distributed to universities around the world to prove to academia once
and for all that LENR is real and very exciting as a clean, affordable energy
source for mankind. They are still in the stage of replicating, but expect to
roll out kits in 2013.
Meanwhile, in academia, the most surprising, consistent news maker has been the Athanor Hydrobetatron LENR Cell of the Leopoldo Pirelli Industrial
High School in Rome that has held two conferences and posted
replications and improvements in the field since their debut in April. While
most universities are ignoring the subject, the Pirelli High School has been
showing leadership surpassing nearly anything taking place at any university
worldwide, except maybe Bologna, MIT,
and the University
2012 Not as Great as I Predicted
(Nearly verbatim repeat of what I said last year, with a few modifications.)
Just as the year prior,
once again my predictions
for 2012 turned out to be far too optimistic for what would unfold in the world of free energy (devices that harness energy provided freely by the wheelwork of nature), compared to what actually
materialized. While there were many great advances toward the marketplace by several exotic free energy technology companies,
2012 was a let-down for me personally because I tend to think things are going to happen sooner than they do.
Progress was indeed made last year, and we definitely got closer to some of these exotic modalities emerging. Bear in mind that much took place behind the scenes -- inventors making significant breakthroughs but not wanting any coverage.
Overall, it seemed to me that some higher guidance system for the planet was saying,
"You don't deserve it
yet." And I said as much several
times in some interview opportunities I had, such as on Gaiam
TV and Coast
to Coast AM.
With the economies of the world spinning into melt-down mode, I've felt an extreme urgency to help facilitate the emergence of these free energy technologies that make energy so much cheaper, portable and clean; while creating jobs, instilling hope, and fostering independence from the central powers that be.
While the solutions are so close to materializing, something seems to be holding them back.
It's as if mankind needs to go through at least a certain extent of collapse, to experience the consequences of the bad decisions we've made and priorities we've displayed in recent generations.
But like the addict, we don't have to "hit the wall" before we wake
up. We can see the handwriting on the wall and wake up before losing everything.
The problem is that the "denial" mode of the addict prevents them from
admitting their problem until they hit the wall.
We have become addicted to acquiring frivolous stuff while trashing the planet, living for today while building
debt for tomorrow, both financially as well as in terms of planetary resources.
We let our kids play violent, greedy, and lascivious computer games; and we let them watch programs that glorify these things as well; role-playing behaviors that we would never support in real life, even while subtly endorsing those behaviors by allowing them in games and entertainment.
The list of grievances against what is good and right is extensive. Does such a degenerate society deserve free energy technology?
The encouraging thing is the awakening that has been happening, both recently as well as over the long haul by the pioneers of enlightenment that have always been with us, pushing the envelope, getting us to realize what is truly important -- eternal values such as love, freedom, hope, seeing the best in each other, repentance, forgiveness, gratitude, etc. -- and promoting higher ways of seeing life: the interconnectedness of all things, the divine potential in each, the value of opposition, the power of positive thinking, not giving in to fear, etc.
Yes, we should continue to do what we can to help free energy technologies emerge, but we also need patience to realize that there is an element of timing to coincide with the maturation or metamorphosis of society.
Highlights from 2012
I prepared a page at PESWiki that lists the highlight
stories from 2012.
into first position in our
Exotic Free Energy Technologies listing has been the heretical self-looped
motor-generator concept demonstrated by several different companies and
inventors. Who would have thought that you could pair up a lower-powered motor
with a higher-powered generator (method of pairing is unclear), and loop back
the output from the generator to keep the motor turning, while producing an
excess of output power for practical use? Where does the excess energy come
from? How does it show up in the system? How does the system harvest that energy
from the environment?
Supposedly, a company in India has thoroughly tested this and engineered it to
the point of being ready to take into production, with product expected in the
India marketplace by April. I asked them if I could speak with their engineers
who did that testing, but so far, I have not received a response. They're the
company that paid for my airline ticket to Europe in September, and who
repeatedly promised to reimburse my travel expenses, but have not done so yet.
Hopefully, their Customer Service will be better than that. The technology they
are presently featuring on their website is
hokey. One of the reasons I take them seriously, notwithstanding these
shortcomings, is that when I met with the CEO when he flew to SLC to meet with
Mark Dansie and myself, he showed me a video of the self-looped motor generator, and
he showed me photos of himself with the Chief Minister of Punjab, as well as
communications he had had that day with him.
Explorer amphibious vehicle that allegedly will be able to travel
indefinitely without stopping for fuel, which is scheduled to go to market this
month in the U.K., may be based on the same concept. They're expecting to get
third-party test results from a university this month. While they are able to expand the applications, that's not really their interest, so the right partner who has adequate global manufacturing, marketplace, and financial muscle could find a great opportunity here. If that's not you, don't pester them with inquiries. Wait.
nearness to market of these Q-Mo-Gen (the "Q" because the shape of the
Q depicts the self-looped, with energy left over) technologies has bumped the E-Cat
into second position, and the E-Cat is likely to drop further as other
modalities push closer to market. It's not just a matter of being in the market
(e.g. with the 1 MW E-Cat systems), but with how widespread the technology is
likely to be, that determines top positions in the Top 5. Once Rossi is able to
have a 1 MW plant that potential customers can visit and inspect, then sales of
those units is likely to greatly accelerate. That was supposed to have happened
in Italy last November or December, but hopefully will materialize within the
first quarter of 2013.
last week, I moved a new technology into position #3. NRGLab's
SH Box. My reasons
included: good price point: $0.03/kW-h; portable, solid-state, 24/7/365
constant; strong independent validation, including by TUV; strong business team
and plan (not that I agree with the strategy); licensing the technology in a
non-disruptive approach; science is not too much of a stretch; nearness to
However, it turns out that I may have been rash in drawing these conclusions
without first consulting the various advisors in our network. There are some
serious problems with their business approach (since when will a licensee show
up and bid in an auction on a multi-million dollar license in an afternoon, when
usually, such decisions take several months of due diligence review?); and there
are questions about the technology's feasibility as well -- both in the material
longevity, as well as the calculations for the alleged price point.
I will be getting some answers from NRGLab in the next few days, and I'm holding
out to see their responses before adjusting their position in our Top 5.
One of the things that will be a very high priority for me in 2013 is to make
our screening or vetting process much more robust. I want to move away from
the Top 5 being my list, with input from others, to being a list that reflects
the decisions of a brain trust of qualified people in the various genres
represented. Having a proper, independent vetting organization will also be very
useful for helping these emerging technologies get the credibility they deserve
(if they deserve it). There is some good movement in this direction, which we
will be reporting on in the coming weeks.
Frankly, after nearly 11 years at this, I'm tired of wild goose chases. I want
to see the real deal get to market, and I'm not going to be in a very good mood
until I do. I'm getting more jaded, less patient, more skeptical, and especially
less inclined to be taken for a ride by a scammer. I've had too many of those
rides. As we grow our network, we will also have a stronger legal team to bring
down the frauds.
fourth place, I have Steorn's
HephaHeat technology, which is in process of being taken to market by the
two largest residential electric hot water heater companies in the world. We're
talking a hot water heater that will cost about as much as the electric heater
its replacing, but will consume 1/5 as much energy because it's pulling from the
surroundings somehow -- free energy. That roll-out is not going to happen
quickly because "super-tankers don't turn easily." We're talking one
year minimum, from now. But once they come out, the product distribution will
number in the millions, and will fully vindicate Steorn, then opening them to
license for the myriad of other applications. The one that CEO Sean McCarthy is
most keen to pursue next is cell phone power, removing the need to recharge.
as last year, Defkalion
remains in position 5. They got us excited last year with a bunch of independent
testing in March, but then they delayed publication of those results until
October, when they released one set of results
from a guy who works for NASA, but was not representing them in this capacity.
Defkalion's move from Greece to Vancouver, B.C., Canada (due to investors not
wanting to invest in any Greek venture) also set them back quite a bit in their
progress. Hopefully, they are now in a position to resume their progress.
In addition to these front-runners, there are a number of technologies that
we'll be watching closely to see how they materialize.
There has been a lot of talk in recent months about Magnacoaster
finally shipping out units to customers on back-order for four years. We don't
have any evidence yet (photos, videos, witness statements, affidavits) that this
is true; but supposedly, this will be coming soon in the next few weeks. If so,
they will be bumped somewhere into the Top 5, depending on their price point,
performance data, and ability to roll out with a substantial rate of production.
Hopefully, Raphial Morgado will be finishing his new 6-inch MYT
engines and wow us with some incredible applications of that technology by
Energy Device group has made some great advances in miniaturizing the
technology and improving its efficiency. They still haven't convinced Mark
Dansie that they have genuine overunity, but he remains optimistic about them.
That "confidential" technology I had in #1 position for a while is
making progress, but it has been much slower than I had hoped. Until they have a
self-looped system, the ultimate proof of the technology, they will have a hard
time bringing in money and licensees. I removed it from the Top 5 and put it
into a "Wildcard" classification in the runners up:
By the way, in case you missed our news link last month, we have a "Tracking"
page where we give the reasons for moving things up/down in the Top 5 and
One company I'll be reporting on, probably tomorrow, is Yildiz'
magnet motor. They have a 72-hour demo coming up at the end of this month,
but skepticism should not be put aside.
Finally, I'll be curious to see how Elecotric
unfolds. We sure had a rough start with them, and even though it was partially
our fault from a mistaken identity -- a comedy of errors -- it seemed to me that
the whole process was helpful in bringing out their true colors in a very rapid
way. While we would all love for that technology to be real, I don't hold out
much hope for that one.
Other Developments of Note...
me personally, establishing the incubation service, New
Energy Systems Trust (NEST) last May was a highlight of the year. We've been
having weekly meetings as we track various technologies, often under-the-radar
projects. Producing the Idea-to-Market
flow chart was a tremendous accomplishment. It's like providing a road map. So
many people are naive about just how difficult it is to bring a technology to
market. Coming soon, we're going to be launching a crowdfunding platform for New
Energy projects, to help make funding democratic, and removing the angel
investor logjam that holds so many projects up. We have the platform built and
are now populating it with a few test/sample projects before launching it
Another highlight was the Global
Breakthrough Energy Movement conference in Holland as well as the TeslaTech
conference in Albuquerque. There are some very enthusiastic and motivated people
stepping forward to help strengthen the global movement. We look for great
things from Jeroen van Straaten and Todd Ridolph, among others.
What Ever Happened to...
Weighing in at second place last year, this year,
Inc doesn't even show up in the runners up. They are beleaguered with
lawsuits, unpaid bills, disgruntled former employees. But one waste-to-energy
story that I need to get in the news is MagniGas.
They have established plants in India, and are growing in a measured way.
In third place last year, I had
solid state generator technology that Mark Dansie has been involved with
helping. They've moved down the list because now commercialization is looking to
be further away, and the confidence about the ability to implement the concept
into a feasible product seems reduced. Once developed and implemented, I can
hardly fathom something being better. We're talking potentially about a device the size of a postage stamp that could power a cell phone
continuously, cheaply. The NRGLab tech could be similar in terms of being solid
state, cheap, and clean. But it seems to be closer to market feasibility.
Number four in our Top 5
last year was
John Rohner's noble gas
engine, which allegedly uses a plasmic transition process to power the
engine. This year, his company was a major item in our news, but ended up going
down in flames as we realized around August that he never did have a working
engine as claimed, but that he has been lying about that, basically scamming
people to get involved to do his research and development, in the name of
building production engines.
There are a number of other players in the noble
gas engine sector, who seem to be having various levels of success in
developing the technology into something useful, but so far, none have a working
engine they can demonstrate producing more power than the energy required to
create the plasma.
Other technologies that I expect will likewise crash and burn this year will be Keshe.
He's about 6 months behind John Rohner, from what I can tell. People (including
me) are starting to realize that he is a story-teller with nothing truly
substantive, other than his health remedies. I hope I'm wrong on that. The world
certainly could use the kinds of technologies he claims to have.
Freddy proved to live up to his name this past year (no, he's not dead). I
don't know anyone who trusts him or takes him seriously any more. That story we
ran last May: Looking
for Airplane to Make Aviation History with HHO Power, turned out to be
based on Freddy's technology, and ended up in a bonfire of angry associates. He
was contacting me in the name of someone else (Lazarus Tesla), making up stories
about being a police officer who pulled over a guy going 250 mph (or something
like that), and asking him what was under the hood, then getting one installed
in his own Camaro.
we're seeing fewer "Power
Companies Will Hate This" scam ads around the web. Hopefully, people are
wising up to that and similar approaches that promise huge savings on energy for
very little money and super cheap and easy plans. Showing actual photos or videos of homes being powered by the alleged technology would go much farther to supporting their credibility than words, such as,
"Try this! It really works!!" Ironically, this past year, the page that received
the most traffic on our site was about the Howard
Johnson Motor scam, which had an ad campaign with this same approach (by the
same group). Because that ad was all over the web, on mainstream sites, people
were finding our page when doing a Google search about it.
Also on the "Fading"
list this year is the "MAGEN
Magnetic Engine". That one wasn't a fraud, just bogus measurements, an
Ready, Camera, Action
There is no doubt that we have plenty of action in this industry to inspire and
entertain a lot of people. Hopefully, it won't be much longer before we roll out
a Free Energy Quest reality show. That could really help us give traction to the message of hope and peaceful revolution that the emergence of free energy technologies offers the planet. It could help wake up the general population that is still in addictive denial as to how bad our situation is as a species. If we can wake up enough people soon enough, we just might be able to make an end run around the Powers That Be and their plan to crash the world economy and turn us all into slaves to their world police state.
Here is a video of Mike
Adam's "20 Dark Predictions for 2013." He apparently doesn't know
about the hope of these free energy technologies, which could wreck the
Is that the future you want?
Help us win via the Free Energy revolution, which will necessarily require the
concurrent awakening of the people, because if we don't awaken, we won't deserve
the technology, and the angels will keep it back from us. We get the energy we
deserve, just as we get the government we deserve. If we want a better
government and better energy, we must awaken as a civilization.
We don't have to wake up the world, just the 5-8% core, and the rest will follow
