technology can be applied to virtually all devices requiring energy,
from cellular phones to cars.

oversubscribed several times with hundreds of qualified scientists
applying to be part of the jury. The final jury hail from several of
the world's leading academic/scientific institutions and there will be
representation on the panel from the US and several European countries.

Sean McCarthy, CEO
of Steorn, commented: "We are very excited to have the contracts in

Steorn anticipates that testing will begin early
in the New Year. The precise timetable for the testing phase will be
determined by the jurors, as will the location and format of the test
process. Once the testing is complete the results will be made public
