BlackLight Power Inc. is the inventor of a paradigm-shifting new primary energy source and a new field of hydrogen chemistry with broad commercial applications. Its wholly-owned subsidiary, Millsian Inc. is dedicated to developing computational chemical design technology based on The Grand Unified Theory of Classical Physics (GUT-CP), a revolutionary approach to solving atomic and molecular structures.

BlackLight has invented a new primary energy source with applications to heating, distributed power generation, central power generation, and motive power based on a new chemical process of releasing the latent energy of the hydrogen atom, the BlackLight Process.

I have been watching this company come along. Very interesting claim and they have been able to attract a lot of investors. I don't think this is necessarily the answer - but an alternative energy source would certainly help us transition away from oil, coal and nuclear.

There was another company in Ireland with claims a few years back that they had discovered a new energy source and they were going to offer it for free to the world. Last I heard, they had assembled a group of scientists and engineers to duplicate their efforts. Nothing new on their site for over a year and their email doesn't function any longer. So, not holding my breath on any of these. Just watching them evolve or dissolve as it were.

Its too bad. Alot of people take advantage of the hopeful nature of the future of alternative energy and are just trying to make a quick buck, all they need to do is convince a few people that they have the answer and then take their money and run. it is hard to distinguish between legit possibilities and scam sometimes.

One thing that people are working on is hydrogen power from water.  It's long been a proven fact that it's possible, but it has to be made more efficient than it is right now.

Great strides have been made in solar cell technology, from 5% efficiency to over 40% efficiency.  But the problem is always the efficiency versus the cost.  The last I heard, photovoltic systems have a useful lifespan of about 30 years.  That is something that needs to be improved upon, too.

A few years ago, the University of Toronto came up with a method of solar collection that was 30% efficient, and they said it could be woven into things like shirt and jackets to power your cell phone and iPod, and made into a liquid that could be rolled onto the south-facing roof surface or wall of a shed or building.  They said maybe five years before general production.  Interesting, but not technically viable yet.  [National Geographic article:]
