  • Featured / Top 100: Flying > Cars > Moller / MYT >
    Moller Skycar signs $480 million MOU - Moller International has announced signing a memorandum of understanding to create a US-based joint venture to produce numerous models of its vertical take-off and landing aircraft, with its first variety by 2014. But could craft powered by Morgado's MYT engine beat them? (PESN; February 2, 2013)

  • Top 100 / Best FE: Nuclear > Fusion > Focus Fusion >
    Plasma Fusion -- hoax or breakthrough reality? - A group of scientists in New Jersey claim to have made a breakthrough that would bring mankind closer to creating fusion energy on Earth -- a type of energy that the sun has been producing for billions of years. Traditionally considered a Holy Grail of science -- could plasma fusion finally become a reality? RT's Anastasia Churkina was the first reporter to access the laboratory. (YouTube / RT; July 12, 2011)
  • Featured / Best Exotic FE: Noble Gas Engines > PlasmERG >
    A Visit to Inteligentry - An acquaintance recently visited the Inteligentry lab in Las Vegas. Though he was not permitted to see a working noble gas engine, he describes his experience as being above his expectations, though he is proceeding cautiously. The next training session for licensees will be in 5 weeks, when they will allegedly be able to take a unit home with them. (PESN; June 19, 2012)
  • Best Exotic FE: Noble Gas Engines > Inteligentry >
    Inteligentry Update: "Production Unit Proven" (no link, quick briefing) - In recent correspondence, John Rohner told me that the production unit (noble gas engine) "has been proven". He also reports: "We have moved from our 2500 square foot shop to a 10,000 ft2 shop so we will have "training" classrooms and electronics production space. We have also hired 5 more people. The new building is 2 blocks away and we will get fully moved about the 18th." (Sterling D. Allan; June 2, 2012)

  • Top 100 / Best FE: Nuclear > Fusion > Focus Fusion >
    Really Cheap, Really Clean Electricity from Boron - This winter a small, privately financed, company in New Jersey called Lawrenceville Plasma Physics (LPP) will attempt Boron fusion for the very first time. They have been testing and tweaking their DPF device using deuterium as a fusion fuel. Already their SUV-sized machine has produced 3.7 million neutrons per Joule of input energy.

(PESN; November 20, 2010)
  • Top 100: Air Cars > MDI >
    $10,000 Car Runs On Air - On October 9 MDI unveiled its answer to the need for clean air and urban mobility - the AIRPod. With its low price, zero pollution, high range and playful and futuristic design, the AIRPod marks a turning point in the nexus of automobile and urban transportation. And it will cost less than a Euro per 200 km to operate and will leave no one stuck in traffic jam. (CNN / (via BIN); Oct. 27, 2010)
  • Top 100 / Feature: Hydro > Ocean Wave > Buoys >
    Spindrift Hydrokinetic Energy Device - This ocean wave harnessing technology takes advantage of the difference between wave height on the surface versus water stability deeper down. It is a buoy system that locates the alternator in the surface buoy, with a turbine down deep, by which water is accelerated via a venture shape through which the water flows. (PESWiki; Sept. 13, 2010)
  • Feature: Geothermal > Raser >
    Steam Dream: Utah's Geothermal Energy Potential - Geothermal compared to other renewables as well as coal and natural gas. Raser is deploying cost-effective geothermal resources, able to harness lower-heat input (200 - 300 degrees F) compared to usual flash-to-steam geothermal processes. Unlike wind or solar, geothermal is capable of base-load power production, providing constant output. (PESN; September 1, 2010)
  • Top 100: Nuclear > Fusion > Focus Fusion >
    New Calibration Confirms FF-1’s High Fusion Yields – "Tests in early June have confirmed that Focus-Fusion-1 is producing higher fusion yields than have been achieved with any other dense plasma focus (DPF) at the same peak current." With this data, they say they "have traveled a bit less than half way to our goal of demonstrating scientific feasibility which would involve a yield of 10,000 to 100,000 joules," expecting to achieve that landmark by year end. (Lawrenceville Plasma Physics; June 9, 2010)
  • Top 100: Hydro > Wave >
    Huge swell sinks wave energy generator - A 170-tonne wave energy generator which was launched off the New South Wales south coast in March, has sunk in rough seas. Breaking free from its pylons on Friday afternoon it sank on Saturday. Early efforts to tow the barge to safety were abandoned due to rough conditions. Attempts to retrieve the barge will be made this week. (ABC; AU; May 17, 2010) (Thanks Tedd)

  • Featured: Geothermal >
    Marshall Hydrothermal System for Harnessing Deep Sea Vents (Interview) - Bruce Marshall has filed a patent for a hydrothermal system that would harness the vast energy available from deep sea hydrothermal vents in which water seeps into near-surface magma, where it is continuously heated and ejected through vents at around 750 degrees Fahrenheit. The hot water and minerals would be brought to the surface to turn turbines. (PESWiki; Oct. 22, 2009) (Comment)
  • Top 100: Storage > Capacitors > EEStor >
    Who Killed the Electric Gas Tank? - A somewhat skeptical look at EEStor, which says they can make "power storage devices" (not technically batteries, more like peculiar capacitors) that can hold 10x more power than advanced lithium ion cells. These "electrical energy storage units" will be lighter than the most advanced batteries in the world, can charge in minutes and will last forever. (The Oil Drum; July 15, 2009)
