Magnetic Power Inc. is Nearing Pre-Production Stage with Zero Point Energy Modules

Modules built with off-the-shelf components are expected to generate electricity anywhere, any time, for less than 1 cent per kilowatt-hour.  One kW modules expected for market early next year.

Mark Goldes, Chairman and CEO of Magnetic Power Inc. and its synergistic subsidiary company, Room Temperature Superconductors Inc.

SEBASTOPOL, CALIFORNIA, USA -- At their present rate of progress, Magnetic Power Inc. (MPI) says they could have 1 kW Magnetic Power Modules™, anticipated to generate electricity for less than one cent per kilowatt-hour, ready for sale by strategic partners next year.  "Nothing else would come close," says Mark Goldes," chairman and CEO.

One kilowatt would power ten 100-Watt bulbs, for example.  Homes can operate on between 5 and 15 kW.

MPI has a number of designs under development, and has built a few working prototypes including rotating as well as solid state, no-moving-parts devices.

Not Out of Thin Air

Goldes says that all of these operate by tapping into Zero Point Energy in one way or another.  In a treatise published online June 16, he describes the various professional agencies, from governments to universities, which are pursuing various avenues of Zero Point Energy. Tapping the Zero Point field, the vast sea of energy that surrounds us, is also referred to as extracting energy from the vacuum of space. In an atomic frame of reference, this energy is everywhere. In more simplistic language, the process is like pulling energy from the air around us. Goldes recoils at that terminology, because the energy is not coming from the "air," so that expression is scientifically incorrect.

He leaves the theoretical models to the scientists, and holds the technology secrets tight to his chest.  "We will not be discussing the specific technology until our patents are secured," he said.

NASA data suggests there is far more than 20 times the Zero Point Energy available anyplace on earth than solar energy at the peak of the day, and it is available 24/7

The Modules

The Magnetic Power Modules™ mentioned are not one particular modality, but refer to any one of a number of various methods being developed by MPI, from small, solid state versions, up to one-megawatt devices -- all of which use some of the same general principles.

In the near-term, MPI is focusing on pre-production prototypes of Demonstration Devices, which can be made available to schools and universities, as well as a 1 kW generator.  MPI expects that these will be manufactured by strategic partners under license next year. Another early application would be portable or emergency generators.  Additionally, early on, a few linked modules could provide enough power for homes.

Goldes expects that many scientists will want to have one of the small demonstration devices to set on their desk; and that kids will want to have them built into toys to take apart and figure out how they work.


Unlike many generators that require special fabrication, early MPI production prototypes might be made from converted off-the-shelf utility hardware.

In their early production runs, MPI licensees are likely to stick with this approach, in large measure because of the added efficiency gained from not needing to tool up, not to mention the cost of machining new molds and parts. In fact, Goldes sees adapting existing parts as one of the best attributes of the technology, both because it enables a more rapid deployment, and because of the efficiencies represented in using what is already available. "We expect to be able to successfully convert utility hardware into [ZPE] generators," Goldes said.

Other Applications

As the 1 kW modular units prove themselves, and, with continuing research and development, as larger modules are launched as well, on-site power will become possible for apartment complexes and small businesses. Also, few large modules linked together could supplement, or even replace, some small power plants, says Goldes.

When MPI has a generator ready to use in a car, they see the Toyota Prius as being the most suitable candidate for a retrofit at first, because its engineering is the most conducive.  Goldes would also like to see U.S. automobile manufacturers get with the clean-energy program so they too could benefit from these advances.  Later, optimized designs might begin to replace engines in every variety of vehicle, so that they would run no longer on fossil fuel, but on free, zero point energy.

Initially, Goldes envisions putting a couple of the 1 kW modules in place of the "plug-in" revisions that some people are beginning to make to their hybrids, and which will probably become standard offering in the near future.  With this arrangement, rather than having to plug the car in at night while it is not being driven, the car could be under continuous charge from the MPI modules, and would never have to be plugged in to the grid. These hybrids with MPI modules will still require fuel for highway driving, but they will now get in the range of 100 to 150 mpg -- the same as what plug-in hybrids are achieving, except without the need to plug in. The modules might be a little large at first, but Goldes is confident that they will diminish in weight and size with additional refinements that are sure to come.

On the other end of the scale, one firm has expressed interest in small units to replace the batteries powering laptop computers.

Eventually, just about anything electric or electronic could have its own power source.  Medical devices, and remote outposts, would no longer need to worry about battery replacements.

Plugging Your House Into Your Car

One interesting twist that people talk about is plugging a house into a hybrid plug-in car, so that the car serves as a generator when its gas or hydrogen engine is running. With the MPI-Module-fitted car, this becomes even more feasible without needing to rely on combustion of any kind.

Goldes envisions a time not too long from now when parking garages will advertise, "We pay more," as they try to woo you into their facility to let your car provide power to the utility grid, and pay you in return.


One of the changes Goldes foresees in the components will be ultra-conducting plastic wire in place of metal wire. Room Temperature Superconductors Inc., MPI's subsidiary, with numerous patents in place and pending, is in the process of developing ultraconductors. "They will conduct electricity 100,000 times better than copper, gold, or silver wire," said Goldes.

So, ironically, instead of being consumed as fuel, oil will be used to make plastic wire; instead of polluting the planet, it will be contributing to the cleaning up of the planet.

Angel Investors Wanted

MPI welcomes accredited Angel investors.  Together with their subsidiary, Room Temperature Superconductors Inc., MPI has raised more than $7.5 million from Angel investors. The company anticipates multi-million dollar funding in the near future.

Ultraconductors have been the subject of four completed government contracts.  Investment in the well-proven technology of the subsidiary is not as high risk as the ZPE technology being developed by the parent company, MPI.

A Sense of Urgency

Goldes cites a number of reasons why he believes we do not have a lot of time as a nation or world in terms of energy stability, and that the need for alternative, clean energy is not just a matter of economics, but of grave urgency.  For example, he cites a number of extremely well qualified experts who have stated that a shortage of natural gas may cause major shortages of electricity in the United States as early as next year.  Rapid reversal of climate change may prove unexpectedly urgent for human survival, as well as the well-being of the planet, he says.

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.
