Future Energy eNews











Glad to announce our annual “show and tell” IRI Exhibit Booth #23 at the Natural Living Expo Expo Page ) which is fast approaching and we are so excited to see all of you next Sunday, October 8th, at The College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center, which is located near to the University of Maryland at 3501 University Blvd., Hyattsville, MD 20783. We will have most of our products, books, DVDs, and reports on display, along with a Premier 4000 “Tesla High Voltage Energy Chair” for free sessions.


Another announcement that I wanted to share with you is “The Ultimate Guide to Finding the Cheapest Electric Car on the Market” which is a fascinating summary of some the most affordable electric cars available today. A related search topics listing, that even includes the “2023 Best Electric Crossover SUVs for Seniors” and other pictured three wheel EVs is the BestSearches service page. Not to be outdone, the iResults website focuses on “Clearance SUVs Near Me” and a bunch of other three wheel EV sensations.


Story #1 is an exciting miniature Nano rocket thruster that is hard to believe. The principle function is a tiny electrolyzer running on water so the gases provide the thrust. Certainly is Interesting Engineering to me.


Story #2 gives us a more practical look at energy storage novelty using a building’s cement foundation perhaps. Basically the supercapacitors are made from carbon and cement, developed by MIT and the Wyss Institute. Storing 10 kWh of energy in a 3 ½ meter cube is pretty impressive. The complete journal paper explains the details:


Story #3 is a breakthrough since only heat is being used to split water with the help of UC at Santa Barbara. The thermochemical invention is being touted as “the world’s cheapest green hydrogen” and a NewHydrogen innovation. The company uses renewable heat sourced from geothermal or concentrated solar which can be much cheaper than even renewable electricity. The possibility of using waste heat is also part of their business plan. A short video explains the process.


Story #4 has to be the best news in the battery business yet to come. The largest deposit of lithium has been found right in the United States! Hopefully, all of the initial hurdles can be overcome to let such a stabilizing discovery become a mainstream business employing thousands of workers and lithium-ion batteries soon. Interestingly, the Related Articles all present a differing picture of the issues surrounding the volcanic find along the Nevada-Oregon border.


Story #5 is very inspiring, if for no other reason than the Paris Agreement was initiated in the city of Paris, France which is now aiming for an emission-free status by 2050. Using rooftop solar installations and lots of electric vehicles, the “SolarEV City Concept” also has the potential to store surplus electricity generated by solar panels. Integrating EVs as energy storage units within the city offers the prospect of supplying approximately 60 percent of the electricity needed and a possible 23% reduction in energy costs by 2030.

1) Nano rocket thruster can run on water, fit on a fingertip


Interesting Engineering September 2023


A team of researchers from Imperial College London has developed a tiny rocket engine that runs on water, which could be used to maneuver small satellites in space.


The engine called the Iridium Catalysed Electrolysis CubeSat Thruster (ICE-Cube Thruster) is based on electrolysis, a process that splits water into hydrogen and oxygen using an electric current.


2) Cement-based supercapacitor makes a novel energy storage system


Physics World September 2023


A new cost-effective and efficient supercapacitor made from carbon black and cement could store a day’s worth of energy in the concrete foundation of a building or provide contactless recharging for electric cars as they travel across it. The device could also facilitate the use of renewable energy sources such as solar, wind and tidal power, according to the researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Wyss Institute, both in the US, who developed it.


3) Carbon Cleanup can spur Innovation



Hydrogen Fuel.News, Sept. 2023


NewHydrogen, Inc. (OTC: NEWH) announced it has entered a research agreement with University of California, Santa Barbara and is working with a team of UC Santa Barbara experts to develop a more efficient way to split water into cheap green hydrogen using a thermochemical approach. The groundbreaking technology uses heat instead of electricity to generate hydrogen.

The thermochemical approach uses heat instead of electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. This method is different from the conventional approach of producing green hydrogen, which is via electrolysis by using electrolyzers with renewable energy, such as solar or wind, to split water into hydrogen and oxygen.



4) Lithium discovery in US volcano could be the biggest deposit ever found


Chemistry World September 2023


A world-beating deposit of lithium along the Nevada–Oregon border could meet surging demand for this metal, according to a new analysis.An estimated 20 to 40 million tonnes of lithium metal lie within a volcanic crater formed around 16 million years ago. This is notably larger than the lithium deposits found beneath a Bolivian salt flat, previously considered the largest deposit in the world. Mining at the site is, however, contested by Native Americans for whom the area is sacred, and is believed to be where a massacre took place in 1865.

5) The SolarEV City Concept: Key to net zero emissions by 2050


Interesting Engineering Sept. 2023


The city of Paris aims to reduce local emissions by 100 percent by the year 2050, in France’s commitment to the 2015 Paris Agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.


In recent developments, a team of researchers explored the possibility of combining rooftop photovoltaics (PVs) with electric vehicles (EVs) as a viable and scalable strategy to provide clean, cost-effective, and dependable electricity in urban settings, with particular attention to Paris and its surrounding regions.
