A New Source of Cheap, Fuel-Free, Electric Power Will Help Revive the Economy!

For the first time in human history, a worried world watches the economy spiral down all across the planet. Governments, including our own, are providing stimulus packages in a desperate attempt to stop the descent. But, what is missing is real optimism that these efforts will have the desired effect. However, a little known, never before commercialized, source of power – inherently inexpensive, abundant and renewable – may be able to awaken hope in the hearts of men and women everywhere. These terrible troubles are temporary. Healthy alternatives are on the horizon. With modest support, they can be greatly accelerated!

Werner Heisenberg, the Nobel Prize winning physicist, stated in 1927 that: “I believe it is possible to utilize magnetism as an energy source.” Perhaps, this statement reflected knowledge of the magnetic generator invented by Hans Coler which had been publicly demonstrated in Germany the previous year. By 1937, Coler had developed a powerful version of his device which was said to provide the electricity for his home and laboratory. In the closing years of WWII, the German Admiralty tried to utilize his invention to recharge submarine batteries without the need for a sub to surface.

Following the end of the War, Coler cooperated with British Intelligence, which published an initially classified Report in 1946. 34 pages of the Report were declassified in 1978 and are now on the web. Professor W.O. Schumann (who later discovered what is now known as the Schumann resonance) concluded, “After the present examination,…I must surmise that we have to face the exploitation of a new source of energy whose further developments can be of an immense importance.“ The source of this energy is what scientists today term the Zero Point Field or the Quantum Vacuum.

The late Dr. Robert Forward, then a physicist at Hughes Aircraft, earlier discussed, in a pioneering paper appearing in Physical Review B in 1984, how Zero Point Energy (ZPE) might become a source of electricity.

As to how much of this energy is available for human use, in an article about ZPE that appeared in the March 1st, 2004 issue of Aviation Week and Space Technology, Dr. Harold Puthoff said, if we employed ZPE to power the entire planet, “it would be like dipping a thimble into the sea.”

Several U.S. Patents have issued claiming ZPE might be converted and used as a source of energy. The most recent:  QUANTUM VACUUM ENERGY EXTRACTION was issued to Bernard Haisch and Garret Moddel, May 27, 2008.

Everything from cell phones to homes and power plants can be powered by this safe, inexhaustible, fuel-free energy resource. Electric vehicles powered by ZPE will need no batteries or recharge. When parked, they will wirelessly be able to transmit up to 150 kW to the local utility. The sale of electricity may pay for the vehicles over a reasonable period of time. Cars so equipped will also be emergency power plants for homes and businesses. Mass production of such vehicles can happen within 5 years.

Most scientists and engineers will doubt this is possible. Their skepticism is understandable, until Independent Laboratory validation takes place. Demonstration Devices will follow. These are expected to include a new variation of the Coler generator.  Then imagine toys – no batteries required.

Once cars, trucks and buses become available that need no fuel it is logical to expect automotive manufacturers will sell every such vehicle they make.  Plants that have been shut down will reopen.  Auto workers who have been laid off could have the opportunity to be rehired.  Large numbers of new manufacturing jobs will be created.

A revolutionary product this far-reaching has the potential to provide huge numbers of new jobs and opportunities for new enterprise. 

The next step will involve forward looking utilities. The economic impact of cars as power plants is likely to prove a surprising way to further stimulate the global economy. 

These systems can also provide distributed generation of electricity wherever the grid is lacking or unreliable.  Moreover, cars can wirelessly power homes and businesses.  Imagine the many advantages, such as the aftermath of storms and other disasters.

Financing this breakthrough, which involves technology not yet widely understood or accepted, has never been easy. From 1985, when Magnetic Power Inc. began seeking solutions to the problem of imported fuel, until now, we have raised more than $9 million, and completed four Small Business Innovation Research contracts which added another $600,000. These totals include the Ultraconductor™ work of our subsidiary, Room Temperature Superconductors, Inc.

Se ensaya en Estados Unidos una locomotora de hidrógeno

Una compañía ferroviaria y una empresa privada de ingeniería, está ensayando en los talleres de la BNSF en Topeka, Kansas,  una locomotora movida por pila de hidrógeno.

Según informa la revista Via Libre en su último número, la locomotora deberá llevar a bordo hidrógeno comprimido en tanques similares a los utilizados en los automóviles movidos por pila de combustible. Los ingenieros que el objetivo es que la máquina tenga un grado de eficiencia  dos a tres veces superior al de una locomotora diésel éstandar, pero para llegar a ello queda mucho camino por andar.

Uno de los escollos principales a  resolver es que la pila genere la energía y potencia necesaria para desarrollar el elevado esfuerzo de tracción que necesita la locomotora. También hay muchos interrogantes respecto a la viabilidad de la comercialización de dicha tecnología, las posibilidades de producción, almacenamiento y distribución de hidrógeno. Por el momento, dicha infraestructura no existe y podría requerir fuertes inversiones económicas.

En cualquier caso, la noticia ha despertado gran interés entre los ferrocarriles de Clase 1 en los Estados Unidos, enormes consumidores de gasóleo. Sólo el parque de locomotoras diésel de la compañía ferroviaria, cifrado en 6.000 unidades en 2007, consume diariamente más de 14 millones de litros, lo que supone cerca del 2% del consumo total diario de diésel en los Estados Unidos. Para esta empresa, en el último trimestre, los costos de combustible representaron el 26% de los costes totales y con tendencia ascendente.

FUENTE – FITSA – 11/12/08

Uno de cada diez vehículos que circulará en España en el año 2015 será híbrido, según el informe sobre “Nuevos combustibles y tecnologías de propulsión” que se ha presentado en el “Encuentro Tecnológico: Vehículo eficiente, impactos y oportunidades de las nuevas propulsiones en los componentes del automóvil” que organizan la Fundación Instituto Tecnológico para la Seguridad del Automóvil (FITSA) y el Instituto para la Diversificación de la Energía, IDAE.

En el año 2020, en España predominará, como actualmente, el porcentaje de vehículos de gasolina y diesel aunque serán más eficientes y contará con un rendimiento mayor. En cuanto a los combustibles alternativos, fundamentalmente biocarburantes, es probable que representen el 20% del consumo total también en 2020. Las previsiones avanzan que a largo plazo, tendrán presencia todas las tecnologías existentes actualmente y especialmente las que sean más respetuosas con el medio ambiente.

Durante el Encuentro Tecnológico se ha definido el cambio que experimentará el sector de componentes del automóvil ante la llegada de un nuevo mercado basado en las nuevas propulsiones y que traerá aparejada la progresiva multiplicación de la oferta en combustibles. Esta jornada sirvió también para analizar los cambios que tendrán que afrontar las empresas del sector de componentes de automoción en un futuro cercano.

Directivos y técnicos de marcas de automóviles, componentes, centros tecnológicos, universidades e instituciones tuvieron la oportunidad de debatir y expresar sus puntos de vista en la jornada de trabajo celebrada ayer. Encuentro que se enmarca en la línea de actividad de la Fundación de difundir las nuevas tecnologías, dar a conocer la información prospectiva de que se dispone y posteriormente debatirla con los agentes implicados tanto del ámbito de la innovación como de las empresas del sector.
