I'm listening in on the free energy newsgroup since a few days, today I got
the attached message. I'm really wondering if it works that good.

Have 15,000 Energy Pros in Anaheim Seen the Light of a New Era?

Did a clean energy era just slip into our lives, unnoticed by mainstream
news cameras?  Its arrival may coincide with the recent success of an
unpretentious "cold fusion" device, reported to put out a thousand times
more energy than it takes to run it, at the world's largest trade show for
electric power producers.

(Cold fusion is the popular term for what the Japanese more accurately call
New Hydrogen Energy Technology.  See David Lewis' introduction to cold
fusion in Atlantis Rising # 2.  In 1989 Drs. Martin Fleischmann and Stanley
Pons were first to claim to have produced nuclear reactions by putting
palladium rods in water cells and getting excess energy out.  They are now
in a million-dollar laboratory in France, funded by Japanese money.)

Clean Energy Technologies Inc. (CETI) of Texas is a small company that
doesn't hesitate to walk among giants of the fossil fuel and nuclear
industries. CETI booked a booth at the Power-Gen '95 Americas conference in
Anaheim, California, and demonstrated their breakthrough nonpolluting
energy device, invented by James Patterson, Ph.D.  Earlier, at fusion
conferences, they proved that the Patterson "cold fusion" cell, the size of
your thumb, outperforms fusion reactors the size of factories by putting
out eighty times more energy, in the form of heat, than the electricity
that runs it.  While the Tokomaks of the megabucks world-huge donut-shaped
structures pervaded by high-intensity magnetic fields-attempt fusion of
atoms and are rewarded with brief bursts of less power-out-than-in
accompanied by dangerous radiation, CETI's and other room-temperature "cold
fusion" experiments quietly and cleanly put out more power than it takes to
run them and they keep this up for weeks at a time.

Meanwhile, as if in a parallel but outdated universe, a physics professor
at the University of British Columbia sputters when I ask about cold
fusion.  "There is no such thing!  That has been proven to be just bad

In the Anaheim conference, where more than 15,000 engineers and other
visitors showed up from 75 countries, foot traffic was heavy at the CETI
booth.  The company's most impressive demonstrations, however, took place
in their hotel room for select groups.  Scientists who witnessed or knew
firsthand witnesses of various tests of the device at the power-generating
meeting gave me varying reports on CETI's demonstrations.  The most
conservative report was "sixteen to one" (more output than input), and
other witnesses said "one thousand times more power out than went in."

No matter which numbers we look

at, the fact remains that a four-inch long (by one-inch in diameter) tube
of metal-coated beads and ordinary water, put out a kilowatt (a thousand
watts) of power in equivalent heat with only about one watt of electricity
going in.  Water flowed through it and out into coils of plastic tubing
while an electric fan blew the room's air past the coils.

"My colleague was there and could feel the hot air coming out,' says Eugene
Mallove, Ph.D., editor of "Infinite Energy Magazine."

Why didn't the company make a bigger splash by keeping the device running
day and night on the floor of the convention center?  Mallove says he
believes CETI came to the conference to nail down a contract with a
multi-billion-annual-sales corporation, so the hotel room was the site of
high-level negotiations. "They went there to give further encouragement to
this very large, Fortune 500 company or maybe even Fortune 100 company in
the United States."  Mallove said in December that the corporation either
has already, or probably will shortly, make a deal with Clean Energy
Technologies to license the technology for manufacturing and production of
these reactors.  Who is the mysterious giant?  "It is not an energy company
per se. It is a very high-tech, instantly recognizable corporation."

Mallove is expected to reveal more in the next issue of "Infinite Energy",
promising details on the testing of the CETI cell at the PowerGen 95

Mallove reports that CETI representatives ran their tiny cell for five
hours with only about 1.4 watts going in but 1,344 watts were coming out.
It was able to heat a room;  in fact, the CETI crew had to call the hotel
desk and have room service increase the air conditioning for the room.

"They reduced the output power at one point to about 470 watts, for safety
reasons, but the input power at that point was .1 watt (one-tenth of a
watt).  So the ratio at that point was 4700 to one.  We're talking about
some gigantic ratios-for all practical purposes, no input power, and it
will be shown ultimately, of course, that input power if needed at all can
be generated easily thermoelectrically and just fed back.  So the whole
thing, for all practical purposes, is a self-sustaining unit to heat
anything you want!

This working prototype of a "cold fusion" heating unit shows more
performance than glitz.  "Frankly, the whole apparatus looks like a science
fair project," Mallove told me.  "Of course, most of the important
inventions in history looked like that in their prototypes.  And it wasn't
designed to be a commercial heating unit; it was a demonstration unit."

It may not look like much, but if someone made multiples of the unit and
put it in your basement, Mallove says, they could heat the whole house
for a fraction of the cost of an electric light bulb.  "In theory, if I
wanted to have something like that and CETI was willing to sell units to
me, they could heat this house in New Hampshire even in the bitter cold."

"Princeton's Hot Fusion project.  Dinosaur?"

Is it reliable?  "This is not the old days of cold fusion where you do some
finicky experiment and hope and pray that it works," replies Mallove.  "It
works every time."

The CETI process starts very rapidly.  "First, you apply a heater to it,
equivalent to an automobile electric starter.  You have to get it to proper
temperature first. Then you remove the heater ... and the thing just goes."

But can it replace internal combustion engines?  Mallove is optimistic.
"Since there is no known upper limit to the pressure under which it can
operate, there is every indication that fairly quickly, people will develop
this for steam production.  And I fully expect that in 1996 a vehicle will
be powered by this process."

Mallove is of course not predicting it will be in the stores next year, but
we do know researchers who want to be first to put a new-energy device into
a small vehicle and drive across the country.

CETI is more interested in getting into production than getting into
newspapers.  The company is not returning phone calls from journalists;  it
is bombarded by would-be purchasers. Their marketing strategy is to sell
distributors' licenses to a relatively small set of serious groups and

Paralleling the dramatic improvements in "cold fusion" are advances in
magnetic motor technologies.  Mallove says he strongly suspects they are
closely related.  I've interviewed additional scientists who speculate that
"cold fusion" processes, and magnets, tap into a free energy universally
present in the space around us.

For example, even though as a mainstream engineer/physicist he shuns the
word overunity (meaning he is not publicly claiming
more-power-output-than-input), Yasunori Takahashi from Japan is stirring up
the new-energy scene with his magnetic motor.  He claims to have the
world's most powerful permanent magnets and is looking for business
partners in the U.S. and England to produce the motor.  New-energy
researcher Christopher Tinsley rode a motor scooter powered by Takahashi's
"Self-Generating Motor" throughout London for about a half hour and reports
that the motor remained cool, which is highly unusual for a motor.
Although it does need four 12-volt batteries to spin the motor up to speed
for startup, a professor from London University said the motor seems to go
500 miles without fuel.  New Energy News, monthly publication of the
Institute for New Energy based in Salt Lake City, reports that Takahashi
also invented an extremely powerful small capacitor (energy storage unit)
and a Battery Doubler which promises to extend the running time of laptop
computers, cellular phones and camcorders.

These are among many promising new-energy technologies emerging around the

Mallove sees the irony in the recent scene at Anaheim Convention Center.
There were a thousand exhibitor booths, all sorts of megaproject
technologies from oil, coal, gas and nuclear fission - "all this stuff
that's going to die completely, with this one (CETI) booth being the most
important booth at the entire meeting. But you know the story.  The
dinosaurs did not realize their demise."
