In this FAQ we capitalize the term New Energy for emphasis, so that it will not be confused with the general expression “new energy,” which depends on one’s perspective about what is “new.” 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 compelling evidence— and in some cases overwhelming evidence— exists in at least three categories:
1. New hydrogen physics energy (a.k.a. “cold fusion,” more generally Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions or LENR, “hydrino” physics, and other water-based energy sources)— energy release far beyond the normal chemical energy of hydrogen-oxygen combustion (up to millions of times beyond).
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, the energy of molecular motion), through significant extensions to the Second Law of Thermodynamics— the supposedly “impossible” extraction of energy from a single temperature reservoir.
