Q&A with Ugo Abundo on newly forming Open Power Association

Ugo Abundo is one of the teacher’s at Leopoldo Pirelli Instruction Institute in Roma, Italia that initiated an investigation with students on cold fusion. Watch their activity at http://www.hydrobetatron.org/

This release came in about a new Association that group is forming to fund research.

1) What are the current projects and activities of the Open Power Association ?

The two readings of the name, “free energy” and “shared control”, are complementary.

No freedom is possible without available energy.
Aim of the Association is therefore to offer mankind the free results of research in new energy field.

Its activities cover the range from simply develop the Hydrobetatron Project (the heir of “Leopoldo Pirelli” Instruction Institute’s Athanor) to reach a synergy with the efforts of all LENR researchers aimed by our same targets.

2) What kind of testing is going on, and what results are being seen ?

We want to proof the reality of “heat excess” by doubtless calorimetric direct measurements. Actually, important results were obtained by comparison methods, and a suitable calorimetric reactor was assembled to reach the final target, direct determination.

We work on two instrumented lines, the first for screening, the second for C.O.P. recording.

Our revolutionary “fluidized bed powder cathode” was asked for Patent on April 2012.

3) What kind of attention and interest is being shown by outside individuals and organizations ?

A large attention is actually growing about us. Since we have designed and assembled the “F-pulsator” (a device to push high frequency pulses into a specially designed reactor), some reserved organizations and a lot of international-level scientists had a contact with us, to analyze their theories or experimentations by our device, according with the “modus operandi” of Open Power Association.

4) What is the funding situation for the Association ?

The Association is basically self-financed by the membership fees, and gets free funds from sustainers and investors.

5) How can interested people get involved in the association ?

We hope to involve more and more people, at first by sustaining our efforts by joining us as a member, then by sharing our results, so involving new interested people.

6) Are you interested in expanding the reach of the Association beyond Italy, and if so, what are your plans to do this ?

We are going to establish a new office in London, from where will organize meetings about the subject, using such a location as a pole for radial diffusion of world-wide free sharing of “science for mankind”.

We thanks for your kind attention to our project, and hope to offer an useful contribution.

Global Breakthrough Energy Conference is on in Boulder!

The second annual Global Breakthrough Energy Movement conference is on schedule to bring energy innovators together from around the world next week in Boulder, Colorado, in spite of the floods that have destroyed parts of the area.

Originally to be held at the University of Colorado Boulder campus, an angel named Darek Zurek has, as they say, “stepped up to the plate”, and a new venue for the event has been announced:

The Days Hotel
5397 South Boulder Road, Boulder, CO 80303
Telephone: 1-303-499-4422

MORE Breakthrough POWER TO YOU, Darek Zurek!

http://www.dayshotelboulder.com/

Darek owns the Days Hotel in Boulder, and “has lovingly offered us his entire property, including rooms, restaurant, parking lots and catering at a generous rate.”

“Our team has come together to plan out a more festive event with beautiful tents, art, healing, as well as a premier lineup of global change agents,” says Jeroen van Straaten, co-organizer of the event.

“With such a planetary tribe of focused individuals, nothing can stop the inevitable roll out of Breakthrough Energy technologies.”

van Straaten also says that, “Included in the conference plans are considerations for displaced flood victims and the surrounding city of Boulder. Help us get the word out to all of Colorado and surrounding states: The Global BEM schedule, talks, demonstrations, art, and projects are accelerating this October 10-12 as planned!”

New energy researchers and paradigm-changing architects of our future energy infrastructure will be present to share their successes and challenges in engineering a 21st century global civilization.

Overviews of cold fusion, breakthrough energy technology, and vortex mathematics will give context to updates from researchers in zero point energy (ZPE), magnets, anti-gravity and more exotic energy sciences and technology.

Financial and economic models presented by Catherine Austin Fitts, Mike Waters, and Mike Upstone, focus on crowd-funding mechanisms in support of new energy technologies, and how these resulting breakthroughs will assist global economic recovery and renaissance.

Also speaking will be Joel Gabon, co-author of Breakthrough Energy and New Energy Movement organizer and Sterling Allen of Pure Energy Systems Network, will speak on the recent discoveries in the top exotic technologies, as well as better gauge achievements through standardizing evaluation criteria and engineering benchmarks.

The discoveries of Ken Shoulders and Mark LeClair will be examined by Moray King, and LeClair will join King on Skype for an additional conversation on ZPE and cavitation afterwards.

Veteran insider Tom Valone will be there to survey the energy and propulsion landscape. In 1999, Valone lost a job at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for his part in organizing a conference on cold fusion.

Ruby Carat of Cold Fusion Now will open the conference Thursday morning 10AM inventorying key events in cold fusion history that delayed its success, and the Live Open Science initiative that’s driving momentum for research today. David Niebauer follows, discussing potential scenarios for commercialization of technology based on cold fusion, also called low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR), amongst other names.

James Martinez of Cold Fusion Radio will speak on Saturday morning, some of the impending changes built-in to any radical new technology as described by Marshall McLuhan. Writers such as Jeane Manning, environmentalists, engineers, and artists will be speaking and performing a variety of messages about history, technology, and the social implications of disruptive energy technology.

For a complete listing of all participants, see the program.

Honoring Martin Fleischmann

Obituaries
The Telegraph
New York Times

Los Angeles Times
Salt Lake Tribune
Washington Post
Philadelphia Inquirer reprint Peter Svensson Associated Press

Too many obituaries like these continue the myth:
that cold fusion is a phenomenon imagined in the minds of lesser scientists.

(A shriekingly loud wailing erupts) Aaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrgghgghhhhh!

O my peoples! Let us correct this – We got your back Martin!

Please take a moment to write to your local newspaper, your national newspaper or news magazine, and tell them that cold fusion is real, and has been replicated hundreds of times in labs around the world.

Tell them Navy researchers have confirmed the effect twenty years ago, NASA is testing technology, and commercial products from independent companies are in development.

Tell them to look at the interviews with scientists on coldfusionnow.org.

You could engage in no greater honor for Martin Fleischmann, as well as the collection of scientists who continued to work on the Fleischmann-Pons Effect despite the hostility of the conventionally-thinking minds and myths like this headline above.



Of course, the greatest tribute to Martin Fleischmann remains the body of work these scientists produced in spite of the offensive conditions.

The “fax” that started it all:
M. Fleischmann, S. Pons, M. Hawkins, Electrochemically Induced Nuclear Fusion of Deuterium J. Electroanalytical Chem., vol. 261, pp 301-308, and erratum, vol. 263, p 187 (1989). [.pdf].

A discovery that wrote the names of Martin Fleischmann, Stanley Pons, and Marvin Hawkins in the pages of history forever, with the glory, and the sacrifice.
