    DEVELOPMENT BANKS FINANCE RECORD AMOUNT IN CLEAN ENERGY

     

    electric plug inSome of the most astounding claims coming from certain pockets of the free energy movement and supporters of overunity projects is that funding is not available, and/or the technology is being suppressed.

    The truth is billions of dollars per year are being invested into the research and development of renewable energies and associated technologies that will enable people to own their own energy production. This will result in energy independence. You would have to be blind not to see the developments in to clean, renewable energy technologies. Many are owned by individuals, like the million householders in Australia with solar rooftops.

     

    One of the largest areas of research is battery technology for transport to overcome the driving range barrier. This is holding the electric vehicle back in the market place. In addition to the 12 billion dollars to be expended worldwide into electric vehicle drive train and battery technology by the private sector in the next 4 years, we can see the Governments around the world supporting research. The following is an example of this. You would think “Big Oil” would want to suppress this research, and how did the Tesla car slip the net? The truth is “Big Oil” is one of the biggest investors in clean and renewable energy technology.  So the question begs….why would any one suppress a free energy technology. Will the future ‘Big Oil” be the Wind and Solar industry.?

    The truth is investors and governments will back credible research by qualified people. If anyone has a reasonable idea, some data or evidence to support the proposal , and the qualifications to carry out the work it will be supported. I was made aware recently of a big oil company buying into a free energy development company. I have not confirmed this with a second party but it made sense to me as it was a credible project.

    My personnel observations when I hear the conspiracy theories or suppression stories is it is “a get out of jail card” for a bogus technology or inventor. That is why hundreds of claims of Overunity promoted by some of the free energy media has never resulted in any beneficial technology for mankind. What is needed is a path for real projects to meet the criteria for investment and research funding. Without credibility there is no point.

    magnesium and hydrogen chemistries to improve the energy
    density and reduce the cost of an electric vehicle battery.
    Current water-based batteries have greater volume and
    weight compared to lithium-ion batteries, making them
    unsuitable for use in electric vehicles. If successful, UMD’s
    water-based battery would achieve the performance
    standards of lithium-ion batteries, but would be smaller,
    lighter, and less expensive.

    impact energy from a collision. Cloteam’s batteries could
    provide greater energy density compared to today’s lithiumion batteries, while reducing the costs associated with
    materials and processing.

    Stanford University

    $2,709,427

    Multifunctional Battery Chassis Systems
    Stanford University will develop a battery that becomes a
    structural component of the vehicle chassis that protects the
    batteries in the event of a collision. Today’s batteries are
    independent of the vehicle’s structure and require heavy
    protective components. By serving as a structural component,
    Stanford’s battery system could reduce vehicle weight,
    resulting in increased driving range.

    University of California, San Diego

    $3,498,067

    Multifunctional Battery Systems for Electric Vehicles
    The University of California, San Diego (UCSD) will develop a
    new battery that can be built into a vehicle frame. Unlike
    current electric vehicle batteries that remain separate from
    the vehicle body, the new batteries and redesigned auto frame
    will become a part of the vehicle’s support structure. This
    integration will lower cost and vehicle weight, while increasing
    driving range.

    Arizona State University

    $2,000,000

    Multifunctional Cells for EVs
    Arizona State University (ASU) will develop an innovative,
    formable battery that can be incorporated as a structural
    element in the vehicle. Unlike today’s batteries which require
    significant packaging and protection, ASU’s non-volatile
    chemistry could better withstand collision because the battery
    would be more widely distributed throughout the vehicle. The
    chemistry minimizes conventional protection and controls
    while enabling it to store energy and provide structure, thus
    making vehicles lighter and safer.

    Penn State University

    $543,495 University

    Structural Battery Power Panels
    Pennsylvania State University (PSU) will use a new fabrication
    process to build load-bearing lithium-ion batteries that could
    be used as structural components of electric vehicles.

    Today’s batteries are independent of the vehicle’s structure and

    require heavy protective components. PSU’s design would
    integrate the battery into structural components like floor
    panels, reducing vehicle weight and increasing driving range

    Purdue University

    $500,000

    Impact-Tolerant EV Batteries
    Purdue University will develop a lithium-ion electric vehicle
    battery pack that can better withstand impact during a
    collision. Unlike today’s electric vehicle battery packs, Purdue’s
    design would absorb shock from a collision and prevent
    battery failure while preserving the integrity of the pack. If
    successful, this impact-tolerant battery would reduce vehicle
    weight.5

    Quallion

    $511,323

    Lightweight Battery with Built-In Safety Features
    Quallion will develop a lithium-ion technology with integrated
    safety features that can prevent local overheating before an
    entire battery becomes compromised. Electric vehicle
    batteries currently require thermal and mechanical safeguards
    to prevent overcharging, overheating, and cell damage.
    Quallion’s battery will include new components to isolate
    damage and reduce the need for additional packaging and
    shielding.

    Illinois Institute of Technology

    $3,411,992

    Nanoelectrofuel Flow Battery for EVs
    The Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) will develop a flow
    battery for electric vehicles that uses a high-energy density
    liquid as its electrode. Flow batteries, which store chemical
    energy in external tanks instead of within the battery
    container, are generally low in energy density and therefore
    not generally used for transportation. IIT’s battery will use a
    liquid electrolyte containing a large portion of nanoparticles to
    increase energy density while ensuring stability and lowresistance flow within the battery.

    National Renewable Energy Laboratory

    $999,088

    Renewable Organics for Flow Battery
    The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) will
    develop a new low-cost flow battery using organic energy
    storage materials. Flow batteries store chemical energy in
    external tanks instead of within the battery container and are
    generally low in energy density, so they are not generally used
    for transportation. NREL’s electric vehicle batteries will use
    newly developed, renewable organic compounds to increase
    energy density and reduce cost.

    Oak Ridge National Laboratory

    $450,000

    Impact-Resistant Electrolyte
    Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) will create a battery
    technology that replaces conventional safety components with
    a material that changes from liquid to solid upon application of
    external force. Today’s batteries include safety features that
    manage the spontaneous release of energy, but result in
    increased weight. ORNL’s new impact-resistant materials
    would reduce the amount of shielding needed resulting in a
    decrease in the overall weight of the battery while ensuring
    safety.
