What is the New Energy Foundation?
New Energy Foundation (NEF) is a non-profit
corporation based in the State of New Hampshire. It is approved by
the IRS as a 501c3 public charity corporation, therefore contributions
to it are tax deductible. NEF publishes Infinite Energy: The
Magazine of New Energy Technology, which has been in operation since
early 1995. NEF also runs a testing laboratory, New Energy Research
Laboratory (NERL), to verify or reject claims of anomalous performance
in particular energy-producing devices brought to its attention. New
Energy is the term applied to new sources of energy that are currently
not recognized as feasible by the "scientific establishment,"
but for which overwhelming and compelling evidence exists in at least
NEF also has a grant-awarding function. It dispenses
to outside researchers and developers carefully targeted research
and development funding grants from NEF's reserves of charitable contributions.
1. New hydrogen physics (a.k.a. "cold
fusion," more generally Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions or LENR,
"hydrino" physics, and other water-based energy sources).
2. Vacuum energy, Zero Point Energy
or "ZPE," Aether energy, or Space energy descriptions
of vast energy sources from the vacuum state.
3. Environmental energy, i.e.
energy from sensible thermal energy (in particular, energy of
molecular motion), through significant extensions to the Second
Law of Thermodynamics.
Infinite Energy Magazine
Energy Magazine has been in publication since March 1995. It
is a technical magazine with editorial outreach to the general public
as well. To maintain the highest editorial standards, it is written
and edited by scientists, engineers, and expert journalists. It is
aimed at pioneering scientists, engineers, industrialists, environmentalists,
and investors who are concerned about an exciting R&D area that
we believe will change the world dramatically. Infinite Energy
is circulated around the world to over 40 countries. And, Infinite
Energy is distributed to newsstands in the U.S. and Canada.

In late 2002, ownership of Infinite Energy
and New Energy Research Laboratory was transferred to the nonprofit
New Energy Foundation from what had been a for-profit corporation
(Cold Fusion Technology, Inc.). The IRS approved NEF's 501c3 public
charity status in early 2003.
The current subscription price and newsstand price
of Infinite Energy is less than 30% of what it costs to carry
on a publication of this quality at the frontiers of knowledge
for which no significant advertising base yet exists, and which
is the recipient of mockery or neglect by most of the scientific
and media establishments. Therefore, charitable contributions are
needed to carry on this important information networking function.
Here is the other basic motivation for NEF: It has been far too
difficult (so far) to persuade venture capital to invest in new
energy technology that is not quite ready yet for "prime time,"
so the vicious Catch 22 ("We won't invest because it is not
successful already"!) must be broken. We appeal to the humanitarian
and charitable instincts of those in a position to invest charitably
in the most fundamental aspect of our future: The triumph of truth
over falsehood on the frontiers of science in which the new
energy field, in our view, will be the first paradigm-shattering
There is almost no area of human activity that
would not be dramatically affected by the advent of new energy technology
especially matters of war or peace and health and the environment.
Therefore, providing tax-deductible support to the New Energy Foundation
should be thought of as a significant investment in your future, that
of your loved ones, and civilization at large. If you doubt this,
just try to imagine our world 10, 20 or 50 years hence without
the advent of a dramatic source of new energy such as cold fusion
(low-energy nuclear reactions), aether energy (or Zero Point Energy
/ space energy / vacuum energy, if you prefer), or some other very
powerful new physics energy source! It's not a pretty picture. What
we have today in the fiery menace of hydrocarbon fuels and its associated
geopolitical nightmare is very ugly indeed.

Furthermore, a future of abundant, clean energy has
almost zero chance of emerging from the well-intentioned, beneficial,
but limited world of wind-power, photovoltaics, and other conventional
renewables not to mention from the so-called controlled hot
fusion program, which is lavishly funded with billions
of dollars by governments to the exclusion of new energy.
