Dedicated to advocacy & support of qualified, advanced energy inventions.
The Future Energy Program includes active energy research and development, publishing and patenting results, besides inventor advocacy toward the development of viable, fuelless energy inventions. The program includes critical review of select discoveries, publications of reports, including Future Energy eNews articles, patent preparation and strategy, and investor networking. Download the Valone "FUTURE ENERGY slideshow" (PDF) presented at the International Conference for Unity of the Sciences in Seoul, Korea (2018) for an overview of our work in this program area. The sample projects in this program at this time are listed below (subject to change and updates).
1) Quantum Fire Project
2) Tesla's Wireless Energy Transmission
3) Spiral Magnetic Motor Project
4) DIY Batteries that Last Forever
5) Scientists Discover Ideal Material for Smart PVs
6) Focus Fusion
7) Diode Energy Array Converter (DEAC)
1) Quantum Fire Project
Its purpose is to bring to the US the theoretically predicted quantum force production from asymmetrically designed surfaces, utilizing the Casimir Force. See our Conference on Future Energy webpage more information, test results, reports and pictures of inventor, Bob DeBiase.
2) Tesla's Wireless Transmission of Electricity
The second IRI project is the Wireless Transmission of Electrical Energy developed by Nikola Tesla in 1903 on Long Island and was called "Wardenclyffe". Interest in the validity of Tesla's physics has grown. In 2013, Dr. Nick Simos from Brookhaven National Labs gratiously presented his slideshow on the electromagnetic proof of Tesla's basic resonant transmission of energy through the earth-ionosphere cavity. See our Futurenergy.org webpage for the Flash video of his presentation and a link to all of his slides posted online. The book by Thomas Valone, Harnessing the Wheelwork of Nature: Tesla's Science of Energy is also a great resource for understanding the science behind this amazing 95% efficient transmission of energy worldwide, which can be accessed and used locally with a resonant receiver, as explained by Dr. Simos at COFE6 and COFE7.
3) Spiral Magnetic Motor Project. Updating the Japanese "Permanent-Magnet Prime Mover" patents of the Kure Tekkosho company (e.g., Patent JP55144783), the Spiral Magnetic Motor is an interesting example of utilizing the magnetic gradient (see #1) in the circular path. The Sprain patent also demonstrates the public interest in such a magnetic motor. It also utilizes this spiral magnet design but defeats the purpose by including an externally powered magnetic coil pulse unit. The V-track design, with a piezoelectric stator magnet, may result in "the world's first fuelless magnetic engine". Such a topic was presented in Future Energy eNews, September 8, 2004. Recently updated with the V-Track design and a successful Indegogo crowd-funding campaign, this invention is explained in detail in the a peer-reviewed journal paper by Dr. Valone on the "Proposed Permanent Magnetic Spiral Motor for Magnetic Gradient Utilization" in the Proceedings of SPESIF 2010, an American Institute of Physics publication.
4) DIY Batteries that Last Forever
This is a surprise for those who think they have seen everything. We have provided a few 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 RotoMetals and they even offer 14” rods with terminal endings for such DIY battery projects! Learn how to make a diy battery lasts forever. Called a magnesium or Baghdad battery they are made with a magnesium rod and either a copper coil or a copper rod.

5)Scientists Discover Ideal Material for Smart PVs
By Phys.org January 22, 2018. Smart windows that are transparent when it's dark or cool but automatically darken when the sun is too bright are increasingly popular energy-saving devices. But imagine that when the window is darkened, it simultaneously produces electricity. Such a material - a photovoltaic glass that is also reversibly thermochromic - is a green technology researchers have long worked toward, and now, scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have demonstrated a way to make it work.
Researchers at Berkeley Lab, a Department of Energy (DOE) national lab, discovered that a form of perovskite, one of the hottest materials in solar research currently due to its high conversion efficiency, works surprisingly well as a stable and photoactive semiconductor material that can be reversibly switched between a transparent state and a non-transparent state, without degrading its electronic properties
The research, led by Peidong Yang of Berkeley Lab's Materials Sciences Division, was published this week in the journal Nature Materials in a study titled, "Thermochromic Halide Perovskite Solar Cells." The lead authors were Jia Lin, Minliang Lai, and Letian Dou, all in Yang's research group.
The scientists made the discovery while investigating the phase transition of the material, an inorganic perovskite. "This class of inorganic halide perovskite has amazing phase transition chemistry," said Yang, who is also a professor in UC Berkeley's departments of Chemistry, and Materials Science and Engineering. "It can essentially change from one crystal structure to another when we slightly change the temperature or introduce a little water vapor."
When the material changes its crystal structure, it changes from transparent to non-transparent. "These two states have the exact same composition but very different crystal structures," he said. "That was very interesting to us. So you can easily manipulate it in such a way that is not readily available in existing conventional semiconductors. Read More
6) Proton-Boron (p-B11) Fusion
Also called Dense Plasma Focus Fusion . It has been extensively researched by Dr. George Miley, Professor, U of Illinois Fusion Lab, who also was a speaker at COFE2, sponsored by IRI, with his DVD available on our Order Page. Dense plasma focus fusion is known to be FOUR times as powerful as any other form of fusion known today proton-boron (pB11) nuclear fusion, which now seems more feasible than ever. The usual tokamak-style deuterium-tritium (D-T) or D2 fusion are traditionally delayed indefinitely, always 25 years away from commercial applications. Instead, the pB11 process uses a high current blast to fuse hydrogen's proton to boron. IRI sponsored the well-known expert, Eric Lerner, at COFE3 about ten years ago. Today Eric is ever closer to break even and beyond as the UK Daily Mail article indicates. The cover story of Future Energy (2003) magazine,
this robust, hot fusion project is scheduled to break-even soon. The Plasma Focus Fusion website announces "Simulation Results Confirm Focus Fusion Can Produce Net Energy" (Feb., 2004) and the suppression that this invention has suffered because of its direct competition, the unproductive dinosaur called the "Tokamak." Eric Lerner's Focus Fusion prototype, tested at the University of Texas, has achieved a billion degrees, satisfying their NASA nuclear propulsion grant criteria. See Business Plan for this very promising, medium risk, high energy project.
7) Fifth on our list is the thermal and nonthermal energy rectification using tunnel diodes or backward tunnel diodes. Prof. Dagenais from the U of Maryland amplifies ambient thermal energy harvested with nanoantennas at UMD. A peer-reviewed published paper (PDF) was published by Dr. Valone (SPESIF, 2009) entitled, "Proposed Use of Zero Bias Diodes as Thermal Electric Noise Rectifiers and Non-Thermal Energy Converters". There is also a wonderful slideshow (PDF) on Diode Energy Array Converters by Thomas Valone explaining the basic principles online. Zero-bias diodes are diodes that need no minimum energy to conduct so they are as good as backward tunnel diodes to convert ambient thermal oscillations of electrons into useful electricity. More information is also contained in the book by Dr. Valone, Zero Point Energy: the Fuel of the Future
