For our purposes, "free energy" is defined as energy that is obtained from a source that is available free of charge and is non-depleting. The devices that harness this energy, are not free so the quest is to find those methods that are most efficient, cost effective, reliable, feasible, and safe.
'The purpose of this website is to feature those technologies the fit this pursuit.'
: "We at PES have NEVER promoted the idea of energy from nothing. Not once. Not ever. Free energy is a matter of harvesting the wheelwork of nature, and there are a lot of ways to do that. Conventional: solar, wind, geothermal, tide, waste-to-energy, biomass, etc. We focus on the unconventional: LENR, electromagnetic overunity, magnet motors, etc. Just because we don't fully understand them yet, doesn't mean they don't work. You're not a true scientist if that is how your head works, thinking we have to understand it if it is real. Science is about exploration, not dogma in entrenched thinking. Free energy merely refers to the fact that you don't have to pay the wheelwork of nature to provide you with energy. You just need to plug in.
: "Indeed, it could be argued that those who are open to new methods of harvesting the wheelwork of nature are truer scientists than those who adamantly deny that new ways might exist because they appear to violate existing paradigms." -- Congress:Founder:Sterling D. Allan, February 19, 2014
There was an error working with the wiki: Code> PowerPedia:Free energy > Introduction to the Free Energy Revolution - Usually, when people hear the term "free energy," they conjure images of perpetual motion machines that work kind of like lifting yourself up by your own bootstraps -- in other words, it's a silly idea that will never come true except in dreams and movies. However, when we PES talk about "free energy", what we are thinking of is systems that harvest energy that nature gives us, free for the taking. (News:Pure Energy Blog March 13, 2013)
Latest: PowerPedia:Free energy > - Gary Hendershot says the term "free energy" sets his teeth on edge, because "nothing is free." Let's get back to the semantics of what it means to harness the wheelwork of nature, so we can be consistent in our usage of these terms in this industry. (PESN May 11, 2013)

Most renewable energy sources
Electromagnetic free energy, a.k.a. PowerPedia:Radiant Energy
In engineering, free energy means an energy source available directly from the environment and which cannot be depleted (so it is available in effectively unlimited quantity). Free energy, in a strict sense, is energy directly transceived from the environment, and utilized without any artificial aid.
Perpetual Commotion - Directory:Magnetic Power Inc says that while free energy skeptics abound, devices like the OS: MYLOW's Magnetic Motor based on Howard Johnson's Design may open a door to wider appreciation of an extremely important potential for rapidly reducing our dependency on fossil fuels and reviving the automotive industry.

Free Energy Technology Could Destroy the Natural World (But It Doesn't Have To) - New energy technologies promise to provide endless, cheap energy from non-traditional sources (like cold fusion, zero-point energy, etc.), but there's one problem with this: The potential for an increase in the destruction of nature coupled with yet another population explosion. (Natural News April 24, 2009)Latest: PowerPedia:Free energy > Why liberal environmentalists don't flock to free energy - With its quest for clean, renewable, affordable power, you would think that liberal environmentalists would be key participants in the hunt for viable free energy technologies. Why do they keep their distance? (PESN Aug. 9, 2010) PowerPedia:Free energy > World renowned physicist challenged over free energy machines - Nuclear physicist, Dr. Robert Koontz, has written an open letter challenging Dr. Michio Kaku who recently called free energy machines "impossible" in a recent interview on Coast to Coast AM, saying he needs to reconsider their feasibility based on unknown principles such as alternate dimensions.

The Closest Thing to Free Energy: Renewable Energy - Developers are looking into ways to optimize the use of renewable or alternative forms of energy. Still others want to build machines capable of creating energy out of nothing. Or at least be able to extract more energy than the amount of power it takes to run said machines in the first place. (HowStuffWorks.com July? 2009)
Free Energy - stuff to think about - Richard Lewis talks about free energy, saying that just because we don't know where the energy is coming from, doesn't mean that it is free or that it breaks laws of physics. What about solar PV panels? If you didn't consider the sun, then they appear magical by creating energy from nothing. (PoorManGuides July 16, 2009)
