Learning About New Energy
Date: Monday, April 09, 2018 @ 00:08:50 EDT
The Global Breakthrough Energy Movement (GlobalBEM) is a non-profit volunteer-powered organization dedicated to educating & activating the public about breakthrough energy technologies which are clean, sustainable and world changing.
A number of presentations from the previous years conferences are on YouTube (for free). Many more are available on the BEM site (http://globalbem.com).
Here are some interesting presentations that you should watch: Professor Garret Moddel's presentation titled: "Learning About New Energy And An Old Demon" from the GlobalBEM 2013 Conference
Some others for your consideration:
- Open System Energy | Mike Waters (GlobalBEM 2016)
From GlobalBEM 2012:
- Infinite Energy, But Not For The Masses | Andrew Johnson
- Zero Point Energy | Dr. Thorsten Ludwig
- Limitless Energy From The Vacuum | Russell Anderson
And an important one from GlobalBEM 2013 by Joel Garbon:
- Don’t be fooled again. Why We Need New Energy Testing Standards.
Here is Joel's presentation summary from the GlobalBEM site:
Hundreds of inventors have made extraordinary claims about novel devices that supposedly produce “free energy”. The internet is awash in videos of new energy technologies that are enthusiastically promoted as world-changing discoveries. Yet the vast majority of these claims do not hold up under careful technical scrutiny. By some estimates, more than 95% of the claims prove to be invalid. This has resulted in a tremendous amount of time and resources expended in debunking meritless technologies, and the withholding of investment capital from a new energy scene that is perceived to be fraught with technical incompetence, junk science, and even outright fraud. The casualties of this scenario are those real breakthrough energy inventions that deserve attention and funding to accelerate them to market.
This presentation makes the case for rigorous standardized new energy testing protocols that are open sourced to inventors and vetting specialists. The outcome would be a vast reduction in the proliferation of bogus inventions, with a more concentrated stream of real breakthroughs coming to the attention of the scientific, engineering, and investment communities. The credibility of the new energy research field will be uplifted, and technologies-of-merit will be more quickly identified, supported, and launched. The world will benefit.
[Vlad] I've discussed numerous times with Joel Garbon, Jeane Manning and many others from the New Energy Movement and the New Energy Congress organizations my proposed (more than a decade ago!) concept for the Xtreme Science Foundation and the XS Energy Prize.

(Part One, Two and Three) and use search for "XSF" for other relevant posts and comments on the subject.
