The climate is changing when it comes to people’s interest in alternative energy technologies. A combination of on-going wars in the Middle East, fluctuating fuel prices, and rising pollution levels are waking people up to the need for new energy solutions. While everyone agrees that locally produced energy supplies are desirable, most “experts” still maintain that they are not practical when it comes to supplying a significant share of society’s energy needs. But other experts believe that local energy production on the supply side and effective energy conservation on the consumption side can easily reduce the energy needed to power our civilization by 50%, RIGHT NOW! So, what is the truth?
The truth is that society is a complicated phenomena and that technology is only part of the equation. There are dozens of technical solutions available that use energy from the local environment or conservation methods to produce all of the energy benefits we are used to enjoying at a much lower cost. The real question is “why don’t we use them?” The real answer to this question is that the profits from using energy like that would go to a different sector of society. To learn more about this side of the story, visit my Energy Philosophy page.
There are dozens of new, and not so new, inventions that produce useful energy in new ways and therefore can contribute to stretching or replacing our supplies of conventional fuels. If we diversify and decentralize energy production, National and Regional security will be greatly enhanced, and energy prices can stabilize again, or even drop permanently.
The following is a short list of technologies that society should implement. Some of these technologies still need more research and development, but many of them could be implemented now, or at least soon. A few of these technologies actually produce more energy than they consume. The common feature connecting all of these discoveries is that they use a small amount of one form of energy to control the release of a larger amount of a different, environmentally available energy. This energy gain is referred to as the COP, or the Co-efficient of Performance. As an example, your refrigerator has a COP of 3. It uses one amount of electricity to move three amounts of heat out of the insulated box. So, technologies that produce a net energy gain are no more unusual than your refrigerator.
Here is a short list of other technologies that tap a Natural Source of energy and deliver it in a useful form.
AMBIENT HEAT: Heat is available for free from environmental sources like the Sun for heating water, building materials, or air. Heat can also be stored, or conserved, by using insulation methods. So, it can be gathered when it is freely available and used when it is needed. But Ambient Heat can also be used as an energy source. In 1900, Nikola Tesla described an invention to use the heat in the ambient air to drive an engine to produce mechanical energy and refrigerated air as a by-product. On a warming planet, this is the ideal energy source. Methods to accomplish this have also been demonstrated using compressed air, such as the work of Bob Neal. But even more amazing methods of tapping energy from ambient heat have been developed using Carbon dioxide as the working fluid. There are also a number of solid-state methods that convert heat directly into electricity, like the nano-diode arrays of Charles Brown that rectify Infrared Radiation, and the Mono-thermal junction of Walter Lovell which converts temperature directly into electricity.
CENTRIFUGAL FORCE: Centrifugal force is generally not believed to be a source of energy. It is simply a FORCE that acts internally on all rotating objects, and therefore cannot be harnessed for the production of energy. Recently, this problem has been overcome. Very simple apparatus with swinging pendulums and levers have demonstrated that energy CAN be extracted from centrifugal force, when an unbalanced oscillation between centrifugal force and gravity is created. The Two-stage Mechanical Oscillator of Veljko Milkovic is just such a machine. In the 1970s and 1980s, Bruce DePalma did extensive research into the characteristics of Centrifugal force, and discovered it was a manifestation of variations in INERTIA itself. In the 1970s, a Syrian farmer discovered that centrifugal force could be used to lift water against gravity, using his Messias Machine. There is also extensive historic evidence that Johann Bessler produced a mechanically powered engine, way back in 1712. At this point, the evidence is extremely strong, that with the right mechanical arrangement, an engine powered by centrifugal force can be built.
CONSERVATION: Currently, the US electrical grid loses about 50% of all the electricity generated at the power plants before it reaches any customers. These losses are due to normal operations of the various transformers at sub-stations, and general “line loss” in the long distance transmission lines. Add to that, the huge energy losses due to under-insulated homes and businesses, as well as all of the under-insulated refrigerators and water heaters, and another 50% of energy reaching the consumer is wasted before use.
Certainly, energy savings like this make Conservation the most important topic currently being ignored in the Alternative Energy conversation. But there is much more to the story of Conservation than simple “energy savings.” Click HERE to learn more.
CONVENTIONAL ALTERNATIVES: When most people think of Energy Alternatives, they think about energy from the Sun (Solar), energy from the Wind, energy from the Oceans, or energy from the Earth (Geothermal). Most of these sources of energy from the Natural Environment remain expensive and unreliable. Due to these factors, these technologies are not covered extensively on this site. More information will be added to this section as time allows.
FUEL-ON-DEMAND: History is loaded with stories of people learning how to run cars on “water fuel”, but the information never seems to make it out to the public. For the most part, the idea of running an internal combustion engine on Hydrogen made from the electrolysis of water is a dead-end. But it is possible to produce a suitable fuel for IC engines using electricity and components from both water and air. Stan Meyer worked out a method to do this in the 1990s, and remains one of the most famous. More recently, Aaron Murakami has compiled a mountain of research proving that major Universities, NASA, and even the US Navy are involved in this field, which covers both ultra-high mileage systems and fuels evolved totally from environmentally available components.
HEAT PUMPS: Heat pump technology is well established in the commercial markets. Your refrigerator is a heat pump. Your air-conditioner is a heat pump. But there are many more uses for heat pumps, and many ways to make them more efficient. Heat pumps can be used to gather heat from the Sun, from the Earth and from the Ocean, as well as deliver or remove heat from buildings. Heat pumps are an established technology for gathering heat from the environment and putting it where you want it at low cost.
IMPLOSION: Most energy sources in use today run on pressure. Like a steam engine, energy is used to boil water to make steam at high pressure. Then, that steam is released through the steam engine to make mechanical energy to run electric generators. But Nature uses the opposite process. It uses a temperature drop to produce a spinning low pressure mechanism to produce a Tornado or a Hurricane. These storms release tremendous amounts of mechanical energy in the form of winds. Viktor Schauberger studied these natural forces and developed working models of Implosion Turbine Engines in the 1940’s. Few have followed up on his work.
MAGNETISM: Magnetism is a mysterious, invisible force. Both the Sun and the Earth have natural magnetic fields. Humans discovered natural magnets (lodestone) in ancient times, and the Chinese were first to use natural magnets to create the magnetic compass. Magnetism has always fascinated people. In 1821, Joseph Henry discovered how to make an artificial magnetic field using electricity flowing through a coil of wire. In 1831, Michael Faraday discovered electromagnetic induction, which is the basis of all commercially available electric motors and generators today.
Here are a few of the amazing discoveries about magnetism that have been made in the last 40 years. Bruce DePalma discovered electricity could be extracted from a rotating magnetized cylindrical. This created the first electric generator that had a rotor, but no stator. Bob Teal discovered that very powerful electric motors could be built using electric solenoids pulling on a crank shaft system. Robert Adams discovered that huge amounts of heat could be generated by the magnetic field in what he called his “Thermo-motor.” John Bedini discovered that electric motors could be designed that returned up to 90% of the input electricity without diminishing the mechanical motor torque. Paul Babcock has developed ways to harness magnetic fields in ordinary appliances to save up to 50% in their running costs. Jim Murray has rediscovered Nikola Tesla’s method of magnifying electric power by neutralizing the magnetic counter-forces in an electric generator. And finally, the team of John Christie and Lou Brits of LUTEC have built working models of machines that put a lot of these features together and produce more electricity than they run on. All of these discoveries suggest that there is still plenty to learn about magnetism as a potential source of energy.
MECHANICAL AMPLIFIERS: Mechanical amplifiers are a class of machine that can take a small amount of mechanical energy and produce a larger amount of mechanical energy, typically by tapping gravity or centrifugal force, and using them as a “force multiplier” in the machine. To see how this is done, visit the pages for Veljko Milkovic and William Skinner for more information.
NITINOL ENGINES: Nitinol is a shape memory metal alloy that allows mechanical energy to be evolved from the Molecular Level of matter, rather than from the Atomic Level of matter. Engines have been demonstrated that produce significant mechanical energy from extremely small thermal differences, making them much more efficient than classical heat engines. The first Nitinol Engine was built in 1973 by Ridgway Banks, who remains one of the most prolific researchers in this field.
RADIANT ENERGY: In 1875, Sir William Crookes discovered the properties of Radiant Matter. His invention of the Radiometer was proof that Radiant Matter was a constituent of sunlight. Nikola Tesla, following up on these discoveries, found that electrostatic charges could also be conveyed by Radiant Matter. He called it Radiant Energy. When Radiant Energy was transmitted from place to place, it behaved like “sound waves of electrified air.” By 1900, Tesla had developed lighting systems and electric motors that ran on Radiant Energy. By 1934, Thomas Henry Moray had demonstrated a small box that produced 50,000 watts, running on Radiant Energy. In 1973, Edwin V. Gray started demonstrating his EMA motor, an 80hp electric motor capable of keeping its own batteries charged while delivering surplus mechanical energy. And Paul Baumann built numerous models of an astonishing self-running machine called “Testatika” in Switzerland in the 1980’s. Much of John Bedini‘s work also falls into the field of Radiant Energy. These developments are only the tip of the iceberg in our knowledge of what is mistakenly referred to as “static electricity” but is really something much more astonishing.
SAFE NUCLEAR: Nuclear power is experiencing a revival worldwide. Advanced third generation power plants are being constructed in a number of countries, and fourth generation power plants are on the drawing boards. These designs reduce the problems of weapons-grade material being produced and sold illicitly. But there are a number of Safe Nuclear technologies that do not use a nuclear fission reactor to produce heat to boil water to run a steam turbine to turn an electric generator. The simplest of these technologies is Radio-Luminescence. Until the 1970’s, a self-glowing paint with small amounts of Radium in it was available at hardware stores. It was used to make watch dials glow in the dark. This material could be painted on photovoltaic panels (solar cells) to produce electricity 24 hours a day for 15 years! Advances in Cold Fusion continue to progress, and even Hot Fusion by Electrostatic Containment, patented and demonstrated in 1967 by Philo T. Farnsworth, remain promising but neglected technologies. There is also the non-fission based micro-reactor built by Hyperion Power Generation that utilizes Uranium Nitride.
Every one of these Natural Energy Sources is available today, and will remain available indefinitely into the future. The idea that humanity is limited to the use of Coal, Oil, Natural Gas, and Nuclear Fission to supply its energy needs is a matter of POLICY, and not a matter of FACT. If you are interested in the possible reasons why these alternative technologies have not become commercially available yet, please read this article: The World of Free Energy
Within 10 years, 90% reductions in carbon fuel use are possible, with no disruptions to the economy. What would change, however, are the channels through which the wealth of the planet flows on a daily basis. Dramatically reducing the production of “greenhouse gases” is technically feasible if only a few of these technologies are implemented. If all of them were commercially developed, a totally clean environment is possible with surpluses of energy, fresh water and food on all continents. The predictions of shortages in energy, food and fresh water in the future are really just PLANS for the greatest genocide in the history of Planet Earth. These predictions will only come true IF all of these technologies continue to be commercially ignored.
There are dozens of other systems that I have not listed; many of them are as viable and well tested as the ones I have just recounted. But this short list is sufficient to make my point: free energy technology is here, now. It offers the world pollution-free, energy abundance for everyone, everywhere. It is now possible to start reducing the production of “greenhouse gases” and eventually shut down all of the nuclear power plants that produce weapons grade materials. It is now technically feasible to desalinate unlimited amounts of seawater at an affordable price, and bring adequate fresh water to even the most remote habitats. Transportation costs and production costs for just about everything can drop dramatically. Food can even be grown in heated greenhouses in the winter, anywhere.
The people of this planet have to decide, as a group, if we want to keep competing and fighting with each other, or start cooperating and sharing with each other. If we cooperate and share, there will always be abundance. If we keep competing and fighting, there will never be enough. The choice is clear. Am I going to be on “my side” or am I going to be on “our side”? Each one of us must choose, and act accordingly.
