What is Free Energy?

Humanity is starting to find out that besides clean water, food and a roof above our heads, energy is really the greatest necessity of them all. Moreover, without energy in one form or another, the entire foundation for a healthy society falls apart. Especially in a highly technically developed society as ours, we have become completely dependent on a huge constant influx of energy. But where does all that energy come from, and what do harvesting and consuming it do to our environment? Thankfully, the number of people asking these questions is growing exponentially, like many other trends currently do. It seems high time for new energy innovations to be implemented – that’s what we’re all about. But even more so, it seems that we have to be more connected and aware in the first place. Let’s talk about the technology to save the world first.


“Electric power is everywhere in unlimited quantities and can drive the world’s machinery without the need for coal, oil or gas, or any of the common fuels.”

Nikola Tesla

Free Energy

Free Energy is the collective of all technologies that can provide a virtually endless supply of clean energy, anywhere on planet Earth and beyond, at any time. In this statement alone lies the answer to what we can rightfully call a global energy crisis. These technologies don’t need polluting fuels, don’t produce harmful waste or emissions and are not dependent on varying external factors such as the wind or sunshine. Instead, they tap into a field of energy which is present everywhere, at all times. By doing so, we can provide every home, every car and every town with an unlimited supply of clean energy, in total independence from a centralized energy grid. Sounds too good to be true? Well, throughout history there have been countless scientists and inventors who have built such a Free Energy device. These people were way ahead of their time – think Wright brothers or Einstein – to the point that their work didn’t even catch the public limelight. Even today, public research into Free Energy is quite scarce. We’ll get into the reasons behind this obscurity under the question: ‘Why is it not here yet?’

How does it work?

For thousands of years, the notion has existed that everything in the universe can be expressed in terms of energy. Everything our five senses can perceive is really just one form of energy or another, but also the things we don’t directly perceive. Take the radiation from a microwave, for example. Now, modern physics has shown that even a vacuum – just empty space without any atoms or molecules – isn’t really empty at all, but is actually bursting with energy. This vacuum energy, which spreads across the entire cosmos, is called the ether. The ether is responsible for sustaining all other forms of energy, from all atoms in your body to the rays of the Sun that fall onto them.

In a nutshell, Free Energy technologies run on the ether like windmills spin in the wind. The ether is a constantly whirling energy, and it’s this movement that we can use to generate electricity. This ‘windmill’ doesn’t need any fuel, because the ether is present everywhere throughout the universe. And the last time we looked, the universe is so nut-crackingly huge, that we can’t expect to deplete the ether in less than quadrillions of years. Guess we can stake it out for a little while on Earth!

Free Energy technology mostly works in a state called overunity – an efficiency greater than 100% – where more useable energy is coming out of the device than is needed to run it. We’ll get back to these concepts under the question: ‘Where does the energy come from?’


“What we now want is closer contact and better understanding between individuals and communities all over the earth, and the elimination of egoism and pride which is always prone to plunge the world into primeval barbarism and strife… Peace can only come as a natural consequence of universal enlightenment…”

Nikola Tesla's vision

One of the first pioneers, who is now regarded as the ‘Father of Free Energy’, is Nikola Tesla (1856-1943). You’ll probably notice that we quote him a lot. With his inventions like alternating current, the induction motor, radio transmission and many others, he is also known as the founder of our modern electrical era. Tesla was a very gifted man who could visualize his inventions so crystal clear, that he could test and modify them repeatedly in his mind before he had physically built them.

“My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists.”

But his greatest breakthrough was probably the discovery of what he called ‘Radiant Energy’: a source of never-ending, omnipresent energy, which could provide in all of our energy needs. One of his latest inventions, the Wardenclyffe Tower, would have tapped into this source and would have provided everyone on the planet with free and wireless electricity. That didn’t sound too well to his investors, though. How could they be making money, when energy would become free? Tesla in due lost his funding before he could finish his ambitious project.

The idea to give Free Energy to humanity luckily hasn’t passed. Inventors and scientists alike have been inspired by Tesla and scoured his many patents to reproduce some of his technology. Since then, a whole range of different forms of Free Energy technologies have emerged, which all tap into the ether in a unique way. Take for example solid-state devices (without moving parts), permanent magnet motors, plasma generators, table-top fusion reactors, resonant water electrolyzers and more. Don’t worry, we’ll take a closer look at some of these under the question: ‘Where does the energy come from?’ Also check out our Inventors Database (coming soon) to learn more about the rich and exciting history of Free Energy inventions.
