    NRGLab Posts February 5 Auction Report - NRGLabs in Singapore just posted this report on their YouTube channel. It shows them making one of their power cells in front of a group of potential licensees, then subjecting the cells to various harsh environments including heat and chemicals, in comparison to other technologies such as batteries. They also describe briefly who presented and what they talked about. (PureEnergyBlog; March 15, 2013)

    Happy Lunar New Year from NRGLab - In a new video posted today, two ladies from NRGLabs answer some frequently-asked questions about their technology that is said to harness environmental heat, describing the different output sizes (allegedly showing 40 W to- 400 W boxes), and saying that the units will be available for purchase in a couple of years. [Not helpful in answering technical questions.] (YouTube/NRGLabsGD; February 12, 2013)

    Atoms Reach Record Temperature, Colder than Absolute Zero - Negative temperatures could be used to create heat engines — engines that convert heat energy to mechanical work, such as combustion engines — that are more than 100-percent efficient, something seemingly impossible. Such engines would essentially not only absorb energy from hotter substances, but also colder ones. (RedIceCreations; January 6, 2013)

    NRGLab posts video of June 8, 2012 test of SH-1 - "SH-1 crystal considered as a mini generator for small applications, such as phones, laptops, cars, etc. The lifespan of SH-1 is 3 years under a constant load. Current NRGLab business plan is targeting SH-6 generators that have a capacity of 100 kW and are pretty big boxes (22 m3)." [Email recommending including "amps" in data, and urging against auction approach.] (PESWiki; January 1, 2013)

    NRGLab's SH Box weighs in at #3 in Top 5 - My reasons include: good price point: $0.03/kW-h; portable, solid-state, 24/7/365 constant; strong independent validation, including by TUV; strong business team and plan (not that I agree with the strategy); licensing the technology in a non-disruptive approach; science is not too much of a stretch; nearness to market (2014).

    NRGLab to auction clean energy license for Philippines - A Singapore company has developed a solar type crystal technology that harnesses environmental heat to provide continuous power in the range of 3 cents per kilowatt-hour --- about three times cheaper then the cheapest places on earth. On February 5, 2013, they will be holding their first auction for licensing the technology, beginning in the Philippines. (PESN; December 31, 2012)
  • Electromagnetic / Thermal Electric > Steorn >
    Steorn In €50 Million A Year HephaHeat Bonanza - Sunday Times Ireland’s business section contained a surprising article on Steorn. Their HephaHeat hot water boiling technology looks certain to reinvigorate the company's finances with two multinational companies seeking to incorporate HephaHeat into consumer and commercial products netting Steorn royalties of around €50 Million per annum by 2017.

  • Thermal Electric / Batteries >
    Graphene in new ‘battery’ breakthrough? - Researchers at Hong Kong Polytechnic University claim to have invented a new kind of graphene-based "battery" that runs solely on ambient heat. The device is said to capture the thermal energy of ions in a solution and convert it into electricity. Such a device might find use in a range of applications, including powering artificial organs, generating renewable energy and powering electronics. (PhysicsWorld; March 8, 2012)
