Greetings!    

 

We are happy to give you the details of all of the confirmed and invited speakers for the upcoming Conference on Future Energy in the first story this month. It should be an exciting two day event with demonstrations as well as exhibits. Furthermore, the full conference registration fee is only $150 or $80 per day. Students with ID are FREE and registering for COFE6 also gives one admission to the concurrent Natural Philosophy Alliance presentations that are next door at the Stamp Student Union. Banquet fee for Friday night is only $35 and NPA will be selling a softcover edition of the Proceedings for only $35. Hope you can join us!

 

How about a cheap battery that's also designed to last 30 years? That's the promise of our second story with the battery made from zinc, water and air. EOS Energy Storage hopes to help the wind turbine industry with rechargeable metal-air batteries.

 

Our third story has a wonderful artistic rendering of the world's most indefatigable reporter, Jeane Manning, author of Breakthrough Power (Amber Bridge Books) who has now tackled the Defkalion Green Technologies Hyperion LENR thermal generator right in her home town of Vancouver BC. She reports it producing 5 kW of thermal energy and a planned 45 kW generator.

 

The fourth story is very exciting since it involves threads that have both a solar cell and a piezoelectric generator combined together. A picture shows Dr. Wang from Georgia Tech holding the nanogenerator thread glued to a Plexiglas plate with leads attached. It's amazing to see two forms of electricity generation merged into one tiny module so that electric clothing will become chargers, biomonitors, and as IRI believes, antioxidant providers for the wearer.

 

We are not the only group promoting quantum vacuum propulsion. Dr. Gerald Cleaver, physics professor at Baylor University, is interviewed in our final story five with his version of antimatter propulsion. Of course, attending the Conference in Interstellar Flight might also be worthwhile as well.

 

Lastly, we also would like to let you know about the 2013 Extraordinary Technology conference to be held in Albuquerque NM on July 24-28, 2013,  If you join IRI this month, we are sending new IRI Members a copy of our last Annual Report mailing, the 16-page Extraordinary Technology conference magazine and as a special FREE bonus, the latest issue ofExtraOrdinary Science & Technology (Jan-Mar., 2013), a 65-page magazine that is a FULL COLOR first and a collector's item because it has articles on the Papp engine, Tensor Ring, Torsion, and also contains a lengthy, profusely illustrated article by Dr. Jacqueline Panting, ND and myself on "Tesla's Electrotherapy for Health and Healing".


This month we are announcing the Inner Traditions publisher's release of Infinite Energy Technologies edited by Finley Eversole, PhD. It has a chapter on "Zero Point Energy Can Power the Future" contributed by Valone and other biographical chapters on T. Townsend Brown, Royal Raymond Rife, John Worrell Keely, Victor Schauberger, Nikola Tesla and John R.R. Searl, all who still hold the public's fascination for their energy and bioenergy breakthroughs. The book also has survey chapters on cold fusion, free energy, and sustainable technologies. It is also sale priced at $16.00.

     

Sincerely,

 

Thomas Valone, PhD, PE.

 Integrity Research Institute Press Release  June 2013

 

  

 

 

 

June 18, 2013 - Washington DCUpcoming Sixth Conference on Future Energy (COFE6) www.futurenergy.org  is shaping up at the University of Maryland with a list of cutting edge energy developments that are unique to the IRI approach to public education. Our plenary speaker, Dr. Max Fomitchev-Zamilov is from Penn State University who will be presenting a talk on and  demonstration of experimental cavitation fusion that can power the future with his cavitation reactor pictured here. 

 

We have confirmed Ben Matek from the Geothermal Energy Association and John Finnerty from Standard Solar for conference presentations. Jim Dunn who is a former CEO of NASA's Center for Technology Commercialization will also be presenting his latest assessment of energy developments. Francis McCabe is on the program to summarize his research into Gyro and Inertial Propulsion, which caused a shudder last year when anengineer from Boeing announced at COFE5 that many aerospace industries are using gyroscopic inertial propulsion on satellites. Dr. Thorsten Ludwig from Germany will present his latest findings on the Coler magnetic current apparatus.  Dr. George Miley is scheduled to remotely present his life story of the fusion research he performed everywhere in the world, which is also the subject of his autobiography just published. Russ Gries, who just published an amazing article on the Josef Papp engine, and Matt Emery, who is an expert from www.Leedskalnin.com(Coral Castle), have both been invited to present a summary of their work and exhibit their findings. We also welcome Sterling Allan, Founder and CEO of Pure Energy Systems, to remotely present his summary of five top emerging energy technologies nearing the market.

 

To continue with our schedule, Dave Fournier has been invited to talk and demonstrate his magnetic motors which he claims need no external electrical input. Dr. Thorsten Ludwig will return from Germany to present his latest experimental findings on a current generator experiment and Frank Amador has been invited to summarize his research into the anomalous Otis Carr "amusement device" patent which apparently has classified documents associated with it. We are pleased to have Nick Simos from Brookhaven National Labs present his amazing classical physics analysis of Nikola Tesla's wireless transmission of electrical power which gives it a high feasibility rating. Also, Dave Froning will compliment Dr. Max with his prerecorded slide presentation on electromagnetic confinement for nuclear fusion. Of course, as a backup speaker, I have the privilege of presenting a talk on High Voltage Electrotherapy if there is a vacancy.

 

 

2) Thirty Year Battery That Can Replace Natural Gas Plants

Technology Review, June 10, 2013

 

 http://www.technologyreview.com/news/515076/cheap-batteries-for-backup-renewable-energy/?utm_campaign=newsletters&utm_source=newsletter-weekly-energy&utm_medium=email&utm_content=20130610

 

 

Investors recently chipped in $15 million to fund battery startup EOS Energy Storage, a company that says its batteries could eventually compete with natural-gas power plants to provide power during times of peak demand.

 

Cheap energy storage is becoming increasingly important as greater numbers of wind turbines and solar panels are added to the grid. If renewable energy is to replace the fossil fuels that dominate power supplies and serve to backup wind turbines and solar panels, very large-scale, inexpensive batteries like the ones EOS is developing will be needed (see "Wind Turbines, Battery Included, Can Keep Power Supplies Stable," "Battery Could Provide a Cheap Way to Store Solar Power," and "A Solution to Solar Power Intermittency").

 

EOS is trying to commercialize a type of battery that's based on inexpensive materials: water, zinc, and air (see "Startup Promises a Revolutionary Grid Battery" and "Years in the Making, Promising Rechargeable Metal-Air Batteries Head to Market"). Such batteries-in which zinc reacts with oxygen in air to generate electricity-have been around for a long time, but it's been difficult to make them rechargeable. Electrodes deteriorate, for example, and the batteries are inherently inefficient because of the difference in voltage levels when charging and discharging them-they waste nearly half the energy it takes to charge them.

 

EOS has addressed these issues in a couple of ways. It uses a slightly acidic water-based electrolyte that helps prevent deformations of the zinc electrode that can damage the battery.

 

The company is also supplementing the zinc-oxygen reaction with reactions between zinc and a mixture of up to six other materials (it won't identify the type of compounds). The other reactions help reduce the difference between charge and discharge voltages, improving the efficiency from 60 percent to almost 75 percent. The mixture of reactions makes the battery more difficult to operate, but George Adamson, vice president of R&D, says that today's battery management software is up to the task.

 

The decision to make use of these extra reactions was the result of a bit of serendipity. Impurities were causing unwanted side reactions in the original zinc-air prototypes. But then the researchers noticed the beneficial impact on voltage. "Once we realized that," Adamson says, "we started searching on purpose for multiple combinations of reactions."

 

EOS has built a two-kilowatt prototype. Eventually, its batteries will be packaged inside a shipping container to make one-megawatt batteries than can store six megawatt-hours of electricity, enough to power a typical U.S. home for six months. It plans to build a pilot manufacturing plant by the end of the year or early next year, and to start making full-size one-megawatt batteries by the end of 2014.

 

EOS wants to produce batteries that cost as little as $160 per kilowatt-hour and last for 30 years. Current batteries that cheap would fail after only a couple of years of service. The U.S. Department of Energy has set a goal of batteries at $100 per kilowatt-hour that can be recharged 5,000 times with 80 percent efficiency, saying that at that point batteries could be widely adopted for grid storage. EOS says its batteries can last 10,000 charges, which could make up for the higher upfront cost and lower efficiency of its batteries.

 

But the company hasn't reached its goals yet. It says it's "well within" $300 per kilowatt-hour. EOS has completely charged and discharged the most recent iteration of its battery cells over 1,000 times, and the batteries have so far retained 90 percent of their capacity. Typically, batteries are designed to retain 80 percent of their capacity at the end of their life, so the current rate of capacity loss is too fast for a 10,000-cycle battery.

 

But, Adamson says, much of the capacity loss is from electrolyte levels falling too low. In one experiment, topping off the batteries restored capacity from 80 percent to 96 percent of the original capacity. Manufactured batteries will come with a mechanism for automatically topping off the electrolyte, which could improve the durability of the system.

EOS says it's teaming up with seven utility companies to test the battery and design it to the performance specifications they need-it will announce the partners in the next couple of weeks. 

  

 

3) Jeane Manning's report on Live Demo of Defkalion

Cold Fusion Now  May 2013
 

Jeane Manning, author of Breakthrough Power, has published an article in Atlantic Rising on her visit to Defkalion Green Technologies new office in Vancouver, Canada where she viewed a live demonstration of their Hyperion thermal generator.

 

 

Beyond LENR (aka 'cold fusion') to Useful Energy [.pdf] is available for free on Manning's Changing Power website and describes a generator capable of producing 5 kilowatts of thermal power, with "several times" energy output.

 

A planned 45 kilowatt generator will be comprised of nine units in parallel. A test generator in Greece is claimed to run continuously for six months producing power at 45 kilowatts. Preferring to call the reaction Heat Energy Nuclei Interactions(HENI), the thermal energy was generated on just 3 grams of nickel powder and 2 liters of hydrogen.

 

The company moved to Vancouver "after their government failed to help the start-up company." Canada "offered a stable environment for research-and-development companies, with a support network and fiscal incentives." Additional labs in Athens,Milan, Italy as well as Brazil will be developing applications with multiple business partners.

 

Initially a partner with Andrea Rossi, Defkalion and Rossi split after differences arose over contractual issues. Deciding to develop a generator on their own, the company began with the premise that only after achieving stability and control would they scale up to high heat output.

The article quotes Peter Gluck, a chemist and longtime low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR) researcher. "Cold fusion came before its time. It is too complex, too new, too unexpected, too messy, too multifaceted, too dynamic, too non-linear and too weird to be really understood and controlled at the time of its discovery."

 

Defkalion's Chief Technical Officer John Hadjichristos

 responded "Science is one, and we have to keep it that way if we want to keep on talking with Mother Nature ...We cannot see or listen and understand her stories if we stop talking to and hearing each other."

HotCat Independent Report May 20, 2013

 

 

The long-promised report on the HotCat has arrived. Far too early to draw conclusions, I have to admit to being surprised. Never have I longed to be proven wrong so much in my life. We are not there yet, but at face value, this appears to be a giant step in the right direction. Healthy scepticism of the scientific kind is still advised since there are, as yet, many unanswered questions. However, extreme sceptics cannot assume that Rossi is hiding the rabbit by micro-managing the tests. They are right to ask questions but they can no longer say that we are talking about a small, easily miss-measured effect, that the testers are idiots or that they have remained silent due to extreme embarrassment. Among them, Hanno Essen and Giuseppe Levi have much to lose amid a controversy fit for the 21st century. They know the impact of their conclusions and it is difficult to see how they could be substantially wrong.

 

Successful runs producing COPs of 5.6 and 2.6 were conducted (while running the device without the charge in place did not result in anomalous heat). At around four days continuous operation, short of illicit nocturnal recharges, it is difficult to see where the report writers could have made a mistake.

The report authors include working physicists, chemists and a radiation expert:

4) Using Nanotechnology to Capture the Energy Around Us


Yale Scientific Magazine, May 11th,  2013
http://www.yalescientific.org/2013/05/electricity-from-thin-air-using-nanotechnology-to-capture-the-energy-around-us/

Energy exists all around us - in the motion of a heartbeat, the fluorescent light in an office building, and even the flow of blood cells through the body. These individual units of energy are relatively small, but they are numerous. 

 

Dr. Zhong Lin Wang, Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology, has developed a way to harness this ambient energy. After months of work, Wang and his team have developed the very first hybrid cell, which is capable of harnessing both motion and sunlight. By tapping into multiple sources of readily available energy, the tiny cells have the potential to revolutionize the way we power our devices.

 

Since Wang's cell is small enough to work on the nanoscale, it can readily be incorporated into biomedical sensors, cellphones, and other small electronics. The cell's hybrid design is an advantage as well: Solar energy alone produces high voltages but is unsuitable for devices used in the dark, while energy from ambient motion is more consistent but is available on a smaller scale. By combining these sources, Wang's device can provide a highly reliable supply of electricity.

 

Wang developed the motion-harnessing component of the hybrid cell in 2006. These devices, called nanogenerators, can collect energy at the micro- and nanoscales of motion by relying on piezoelectricity, the production of a current from compression or strain. To construct a nanogenerator, Wang grew a vertical array of microscopic zinc oxide (ZnO) wires on a flat base. On top of this, he placed an electrode with multiple pointed peaks that give it a "zig-zag" appearance. When the ZnO nanowires are bent out of their ordered formation, they generate small electric charges due to piezoelectricity. They then touch the zig-zag edge of the electrode, which collects all the electricity to produce a current. Due to its sensitivity, a nanogenerator can capture even vibrations of very small magnitudes, which can then be harnessed to power an object such as a pacemaker. In fact, nearly a milliwatt of mechanical energy exists in each cubic centimeter of the ambient environment.

 

Many devices, however, cannot be sustainably powered by nanogenerators alone; solar cells generate a larger voltage more practical for use in bright environments. To miniaturize solar power capture, Wang made use of an existing technology called a dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC). These cells are made by combining an anode with an electrolyte solution to form a semiconductor. First, a dye is applied to the anode to make it sensitive to light. When light strikes the dye, it releases electrons that flow through the anode toward the electrolyte solution, generating a current. Wang's method employs the same principle on a miniaturized scale. Dye-coated ZnO nanowires serve as the anode, surrounded by the cell with a chamber of electrolytic fluid, forming a DSSC small enough to integrate with a nanogenerator.

 

After refining both technologies in collaboration with Dr. Xudong Wang of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Wang has discovered a way to incorporate both nanogenerators and DSSCs into a device he terms a "hybrid cell." The upper layer of the cell harvests light energy, and the nanogenerator below collects ambient motion. A single layer of silicon is sandwiched between the two and functions as an electrode for both devices, combining their energy into a single output. The two sources can be connected in parallel for higher currents and in series for higher voltages.
