For five years NEN has been reporting on anti-gravity; energy-producing, solid-state circuits; magnetic motors; cold fusion; transmutation; torsion fields; and many other new-energy topics. In Volume 1, number 1, we stated the main purpose of New Energy News as follows:

"The main purpose of New Energy News is to provide unifying communications that will serve to promote the use of new energy systems to help resolve the world's environmental problems. There are in existence, in various parts of the world, working models of clean energy devices and systems based on hydrogen, cold fusion, rotating space-energy machines, solid-state space energy generators, or space-energy devices. In addition, there are new developments in theoretical science that can now explain how some of these new-energy systems work. Therefore, New Energy News will publish summaries of the latest developments, sources of information, and abstracts of technical papers that are related to the research, development, and commercialization of new-energy devices."

We have adhered to that purpose. For example, during the past five years we have reported on the following:

And many other topics.

Contrary to our expectations five years ago, there is still a scarcity of new-energy devices that appear destined for commercialization in 1998. However, there is some good news on coming events:

  1. Kohei Minato's magnetic motor (claimed to be over unity) is to be distributed by a U.S. firm. Public announcement pending.
  2. BlackLight Power (whose stock went from $0.75 to $1500) is being supported, in part, by electric utility companies.
  3. We expect to get further information on the construction of torsion field generators.
  4. Gravity-wave detectors may be mass produced.
  5. Charge-cluster technology may be supported by government contracts.
  6. Room-temperature superconductivity will become more accepted.
  7. More news is expected on optical computers.
  8. New announcements on over-unity solid-state circuits expected.
  9. Low-energy Transmutation will become acceptable to more scientists.
  10. More surprises.

Our expectations are that before the turn of the century there will be more new-energy devices and systems announced, invented, developed, and/or commercialized. Even more important, we forecast that the government will begin to provide some support for new-energy research and development. Don't cut off the electric power and the natural gas lines to your home just yet. However, by the year 2000, we believe that there may well be competitive new-energy devices and systems that will soon be replacing power lines and gas connections.

One item that we have neglected: The holding of meetings of the Institute for New Energy. No longer. The scheduled INE New-Energy Symposium to be held August 14-15, 1998 in Salt Lake City, Utah, will be the place for an INE membership meeting and the election of directors and officers. Bring your membership card. Get those abstracts to us by May 15, 1998!

Perhaps the best achievements of the INE have been the following:

First, the INE president, Dr. Patrick Bailey, has established, maintained, and updates an internet web site.

Second, INE has published 60 monthly newsletters, possibly the best monthly publication devoted to new-energy topics. We must give great thanks to the Fusion Information Center for its financial and production support of New Energy News for this five-year effort.

If all the members work together, we should become one of the best and most influential energy membership organizations in the world. Let's do it!
