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.
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.
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
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.

Thirty Year Battery That Can Replace Natural Gas Plants
Technology Review, June 10, 2013
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.
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").
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.
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.
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
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."
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.
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
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.
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.
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
Cold Fusion Now
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.

Manning's Changing Power website and
describes a generator capable of producing 5 kilowatts of thermal
power, with "several times" energy output.

parallel. A test generator in Greece is claimed to run
continuously for six months producing power at 45 kilowatts.

the thermal energy was generated on just 3 grams of nickel powder and
2 liters of hydrogen.

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.

4) Using Nanotechnology to
Capture the Energy Around Us
Yale Scientific Magazine, May 11th, 2013
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
