Future Energy eNews











With more facts proving climate change every day and the need for action, NPR has finally explained why the public does not in general treat the subject as urgent. In a free iTunes podcast already online, PR firm agent and activist David Fenton explains the passion and personal insights needed for “Selling the Science of Climate Change”. I couldn’t stop listening and therefore highly recommend at least the first half hour.


You are invited to register for our upcoming Conference on Future Energy to be held August 10-11, in the midst of a concurrent ExtraOrdinary Tech Conference. Also, one of our speakers at COFE10 also did a successful crowdfunding just to finish and publish her book, Matter Over Mind: Cosmos, Chaos, and Curiosity. So lots of stuff works on Indiegogo, in case you have a cause worth funding.


Speaking of successful projects, I’m happy to introduce you to Prof. Jonathan Berman who is screening his new movie, “Calling All Earthlings” . Yes, the event is to be held in a few days in the desert , June 1-4, 2018, and I’m in the trailer and in the movie! It centers around the famous , which George Van Tassel built and operates like an inverted Tesla coil with an electrotherapy design. I helped Dr. Berman with some of the research and his crew was at our lab filming our Tesla coil in action.


Did you notice that we now have “Instant Download” for some IRI books by popular demand? A few examples, ready for purchase at a discount for our FE eNews readers, are below. More are being added every day! Video streaming or download of those lecture DVDs is the next project to happen in this regard.


Our Story #1 is a true lithium-ion battery breakthrough from Cornell University, thanks to futurist, Ray Kurzweil’s “Accelerating Intelligence” News. Note the double asterisks for the key phrase “fast-charging” which, to relieve you of the suspense, is referenced as ** Also described as high “power density.” In addition, “Batteries with nanostructured architectures promise improved power output, as close proximity of the two electrodes is beneficial for fast ion diffusion, while high material loading simultaneously enables high energy density” (hold more power for longer). — J. G. Werner et al./Energy Environ. Sci.


Story #2 is another surprise for those who think they have seen everything. We have provided three links to the same concept of building cheap and extremely long-lasting batteries you can do-it-yourself (DIY). We also recommend a great company for obtaining supplies, like the ½” or 1” thick magnesium, copper, or zinc rods. They can be purchased at reasonable prices from and they even offer 14” rods with terminal endings for such projects!


Story #3 is from a great organization called IDTechEx which hosts amazing expos, webinars, and conferences, and a new Energy Harvesting Journal for . Now their latest article on a thin film pyroelectric converter of low-grade heat below 100°C is unprecedented at the energy levels achieved by U of CA at Berkley. We know we need new energy sources, but we also need to do better at utilizing the energy we already have," said senior author Lane Martin, associate professor of materials science and engineering. "These thin films can help us squeeze more energy than we do today out of every source of energy."  The research was published in the journal Nature Materials. The research was supported, in part, by grants from the Army Research Office and the National Science Foundation.


Story #4 is exciting to read since everyone loves to hear what Richard Branson is up to now. This is right up there with his other accomplishments since it will speed up cargo shipping tremendously and maybe get some of those semi-tractor trailers off of the road. A Hyperloop agreement is now in place to see cargo whizzing along in the near future.


Story #5 follows the DIY theme of #3 with complete plans for adding 200 watts of solar power to that camping van of yours. I just added a 2.5 W dashboard solar trickle charger for maintaining optimum battery life on our car and love giving away those small solar lights from so this seems to be one more possible route to energy independence.


Onward and upward!

1) Revolutionary 3D NanoHybrid Battery Could Allow Charging in Seconds




Cornell University engineers have designed a revolutionary 3D lithium-ion battery that could be charged in just seconds. Also prevents fires in mobile devices.


By May 2018


In a conventional battery, the battery’s anode and cathode* (the two sides of a battery connection) are stacked in separate columns (the black and red columns in the left illustration above). For the new design, the engineers instead used thousands of nanoscale (ultra-tiny) anodes and cathodes (shown in the illustration on the right above). Putting those thousands of anodes and cathodes just 20 nanometers (billionths of a meter) apart dramatically extends the area, allowing for extremely fast charging** (in seconds or less) and also allows for holding more power for longer.



2) DIY Batteries That Last Forever


Ed.Note: More and more claims for batteries that last forever are being made today.

Here are a few of them, with everyday parts everyone can obtain, which will last for years.

The main article with video is a recreation of the famous “Baghdad Battery” found in Iraq that was 2000 years old.

3) Thin Film Converts Heat to Electricity



Converts heat to Electricity at Levels Unprecedented

By Off Grid May 2018

 The thin-film system uses a process called pyroelectric energy conversion, which the engineers' new study demonstrates is well suited for tapping into waste-heat energy supplies below 100 degrees Celsius, called low-quality waste heat. Pyroelectric energy conversion, like many systems that turn heat into energy, works best using thermodynamic cycles, kind of like how a car engine works. But unlike the engine in your car, pyroelectric energy conversion can be realized entirely in the solid state with no moving parts as it turns waste heat into electricity.  



4) Hyperloop One and DP World Launch Cargo Only Shipping


By Richard Cooper,, May 2018


Virgin Hyperloop One and DP World have announced the launch of a new company that will push the technology into the cargo industry. DP World Cargospeed is a new project that will see the pair look to build Hyperloop-enabled cargo systems to transport "palletized cargo." It's not much of a departure from what Hyperloop One has always said it would do, but the new company will be responsible for making it work.


5) Two Hundred Watt Van Solar Power Setup


By Ian Moore,


This guide for a basic 200 watt solar setup is good as a template for planning your electrical system. It covers the parts and acts as a visual reference for how things are connected. For important information on calculating electricity and individual component choices, explore our electrical page. In particular, read our post on wiring your campervan before purchasing anything. Just like baking a cake, it’s good practice to be familiar with all of the steps before diving in.


200 Watts is enough to power small electronics such as cell phones, lights, and vent fan as well as a couple of larger items such as laptops and a refrigerator. Keep in mind that if you plan on wiring in an alternator or generator the system layout changes a bit. It’s better to plan for them at the beginning than try to add them in later.
