The Future is in The Air

I was shown many new technology ideas years ago, and I was told that cars would imitate plants and to look to the natural world for the ways to make clean technologies that would increase our power without damaging the planet. This looks exactly like one of those I saw in meditation. I love seeing them show up.



Phinergy Powers Car Using Metal, Air, and Water


Phinergy is a leading developer of breakthrough zero-emission, high energy-density systems based on metal-air energy technologies. The company’s primary focus is on aluminum-air and zinc-air batteries. Unlike conventional batteries that carry oxygen, these batteries freely breathe oxygen from the ambient air to release the energy contained in metals.

Phinergy's technologies offer significant advantages including:
  • Ultra High energy density
  • Zero CO2 emissions
  • Fully recyclable materials
  • Safety
  • Competitive cost

The Company’s Aluminum-Air battery system has been successfully integrated into an electric vehicle resulting in more than three times the driving range of current EVs.

Phinergy's technology provides energy solutions to a wide range of applications including:
  • Transportation
  • Stationary energy storage
  • Aerospace and defense
  • Consumer electronics
  • Chlorine production 


Watch this amazing demonstration and explanation of the technology.



OVERVIEW


Metal-air technology has been at the forefront of energy research for years, due to its enormous energy potential.
Phinergy's technological breakthroughs allow it to efficiently utilize this potential for various applications, outperforming conventional batteries.

A conventional battery consists of an anode and a cathode, where the cathode takes up to 70% of the battery’s weight. The cathode is used as a container for a reactant (e.g. Oxygen), usually up to 5% of its weight, that is required for releasing the energy in a metal anode. The result is that most of a conventional battery’s weight is poorly utilized.

Conventional Battery


A metal-air battery features an air-electrode that breathes oxygen from ambient air, instead of the conventional cathode. That is, the battery consumes the required oxygen from the air, rather than having heavy materials that bound oxygen inside it. Metal-air batteries therefore have a huge potential for delivering high capacity with low weight.

Free Energy Now

by Sandy Penny . WritingMuse.com
I’ve been watching technology advancements with interest for some time, and I believe that technology already exists to solve most of the problems in the world. It depends on society demanding that all people have affordable access to the basics in life. And, the inventor (K. R. Shridar) of the Bloom Energy Server, affectionately called the Bloom box and the Bloom energy fuel cell, agrees with that.
When he began his research, he was trying to develop technology that would be sustainable on Mars. During that period of time, he realized that we first needed to solve our own energy needs at home, on our own planet Earth. He knew that it needed to be plentiful and easy and cheap to acquire. The basis of the technology is sand. It met all the requirements for inexpensive production.
The sand is crushed and treated in a proprietary way, and the “powder becomes power.” Flat (4” x 4” approximatley) panels are stacked in a box and exposed to any number of fuels that cause the generation of electricity. It also has 24-7 availability, unlike wind and solar power. The more stacks, the more power. And it’ silent, no moving parts and emits no pollution. It also present none of the dangers of nuclear power generation. It’s pretty miraculous. (See video on the right.)
Some say it’s too good to be true, but Google (their first customer), Walmart, FedEX, EBay and Coca-Cola, all current beta testing customers of the Bloom are raving about its contribution to a smaller carbon footprint and lower energy costs. It helps them meet the new requirements for clean technology while saving them money, and that makes them very happy.
It has now been tested for 8 years, and after solving a few problems that arose, seems to be the best and most reliable new technology available. After years of secrecy, they have finally (2 years ago) launched their PR campaign. K. R. Shridar was introduced by Governor Arnold because California is one of the biggest green states and will be the first to include this technology in their grid. (See video at the bottom of this post.)
Unfortunately, Bloom has now made deals with large corporations and the power grid companies to enable them to save money on generating electricity, but feed it into the grid, and continue to charge people monthly rates. That means that individual families will not get this technology that could take them off the grid for 10 or more years. (I suspect a deal was made to hold back on the individual family production for 10 years while the system implemented it and recouped their costs.)
K. R. SIdhar originally said he wanted to offer people the small home sized box for a few thousand dollars, and get them off the grid, which means that power outages would no longer affect people, and a one-time purchase would last about 20 years (no electricity bills). This, of course, would impact the bottom line of the power companies. That plan has changed now. I have no proof, but I suspect big money has a say in it. This power is about twice as effective as any other generation method it was compared to. I wonder if our electric bills will go down when the power companies implement this technology. I hope so.
I’d like to see the original plan resurface. We need and deserve this kind of free energy at this time in our world. It would also allow more people to spread out on the planet and still have access to electricity far from the grid. It is one of the big hopes for the future.

Primary Water . Hope for the Future by Sandy Penny


 Primary Water . Another Hope for the Future by Sandy Penny

The second solution that is now available is water. Many scientists are predicting water wars and shortages, but the answer to this problem is already available and provided by the earth system that is already in place. I was shown that earthquakes during this shift time would release new sources of water, and now that is happening.

Most people have never heard of primary water, but it is pure water, H2O, that is chemically produced by the earth deep inside and stored in crystal domes as part of the cooling system of the planet. The domes have fissures that become little underground streams that run through the rocky layers in the earth and get mineralized, making them better for human consumption. 

Once again, the dowsers have known about this water and located it for years, but we have just now developed technologies that can find it and drill deep enough to bring it to the surface. The good news is, because of the pressure of the domes, the water tends to come to the surface on its own, like when you hit a hydrocarbon pocket, and like mother’s milk, the more you use, the more the earth produces replacement water. You only drill into the small streams and not the domes though because the pressure would cause an explosion and lose too much water. This water is not related to the ground water and aquifers we currently use, and is not dependent on rain water or ocean water. Old Faithful geyser is primary water.
 
Bill Cox was the premier dowser and driller for primary water. He died last year, and now his work is becoming more public. I like to think he’s promoting this from the other side. One of his most famous projects was Lake Elsinore, California. When it was going dry, he located a primary water source below the lake, and refilled the lake which has had no additional problems with its levels since then. Here’s an interview with Bill Cox regarding new water for humanity: http://youtu.be/fz0Zq-yxboM. There are several segments to the interview, but it’s very enlightening. 

Geologist Pal Pauer dowsed, found and helped drill for primary water in Kenya in March 2011. Southeastern Africa is dotted with villages like this one where the annual rainfall is less than 10 inches per year. People have to walk miles to tote water back to their homes daily, and spend hours sanitizing it before use. On this recent trip, Pal successfully drilled a total of six wells that are bringing in over 2,000 gallons per minute. Water is truly life. Primary water is water that is not part of the hydrological cycle and has never seen the light of day. Fortunately, primary water can be located below deserts and in areas where there is little rainfall. Here’s the video of that water project coming to fruition: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=prhK7zUWXTE#!





If these two major problems of water and energy can be solved with technologies already available, what else can we do if we put our minds and hearts together? Truly, there is hope for the world.


Water Splitting by Sandy Penny


Hope for the Future: Water Splitting
By Sandy Penny . July 2012

“The Future Belongs to Those who Believe in the Beauty of their Dreams.” - Eleanor Roosevelt

Many say the optimists are naive Pollyannas who can’t see what’s going on in the world. I say the pessimists can’t see what’s going on in the world. If we allow the fear-based negativity to take over our lives, we cannot create the new world that futurists say is possible. In honor of what’s good in the world, I’d like to call attention to some of the latest technological and social developments that say we’re moving in the right direction. So, I've created this blog to share the insights I get and the manifestations that show up.

About 10 years ago, I asked in meditation how we could solve the energy crisis without destroying the world. I was told to look at the plants. They use photosynthesis to create themselves from air, water and light. Cars and houses can be run the same way. I didn’t understand how that could work, but I was confident that someone would. I asked a few technologists and engineers about it, but no one had any insight at that time. 

Water Splitting . Hope for the Future

Last year, I was perusing Youtube videos and came across one from MIT detailing the solution to the world’s energy problems in the next ten years. A small water bottle could run your entire house and an Olympic size swimming pool could provide enough energy to run the whole world. Water splitting is the process. It uses photosynthesis to split the water molecule and make the hydrogen available as fuel. It uses such a small amount of water that it defeats the objections that water shortages will prevent the use of hydro-powered options. It also solves the battery storage problem as it is constantly available and needs no battery. 

As soon as I saw the video, I knew this was what I had been shown but didn’t understand. As is often the case, the idea is already fully formed before the inventors create the physical representation of it.
Here’s the link to the video explanation from MIT, Dr. Dan Nocera, “Personalized Energy”: http://youtu.be/KTtmU2lD97o.
