Brilliant...??? or Scam...???

Brilliant Light Power


Electrical power from water fuel

Brilliant Light Power


Quote:
Brilliant Light Power, Inc. has developed SunCell®, a 30 pound Table Top Electrical Generator capable of producing 125 KW of Power. SunCell® Energy Density conversion yield is staggering for it's small size and weight, 100 times greater than the equivalent amount of high-octane gasoline; enormous energy density.

Quote:
brilliant light’s suncell® has produced millions of watts of power at a power density that is significantly higher than that of any other power source. The nonpolluting power-producing suncell® catalytically converts h2o-based molten fuel injected into ignition electrodes directly into brilliant light-emitting plasma power. The suncell® plasma temperature is adjustable emitting a solar-like spectrum of light, but at extraordinary power equivalent to ten’s of thousands of times the sun’s intensity at the earth’s surface. Optical power is converted directly into electricity using concentrator photovoltaic cells (solar cells), very high-power, high-efficiency cells that are commercially available. Patents are filed worldwide.



They are planning field tests in 2017 and a commercial launch in 2018.


If true...

This could change life as we know it.


So.

Brilliant...??? or Scam...???

Quite likely a scam. The Wikipedia article is pretty damning.

Yeah, scam.

Note the last line from the wiki entry (the guy used to go by Black Light Power, BLP, so it's the same dude.)

"BLP has announced several times that it was about to deliver commercial products based on Mill's theories but has not delivered a working product."

Anything Wikipedia should be taken with a grain of salt, in my opinion.



It seems that the jury is "still out" in regards to where the excess energy is coming from.

If it sounds too good to be true, it is.

It almost sounds like a chemical laser. Chemical laser fuel is expensive and the waste is usually unbelievable toxic.

If scam it would have to be one of the best of all time

Consider that there are other companies and experts now involved in this. British Telecom, Columbia Technologies and Masimo Semiconductors all presented at the last public demonstration on Nov 5, 2016. Columbia Tech, a subsidiary of the Coghlin Companies is actually building the pilot Suncell, so for them to present would they are putting the company reputation on the line. There were also validators there from several universities that also presented. See the brilliantlightpower web page.

Also, BrLP just released this announcement of their new advisory board:
December 13th 2016, Cranbury, New Jersey, Brilliant Light Power, Inc. announces today the appointment of the Company’s Advisory Board –The Advisory Board consists of senior industry executives and includes Colin Bannon from BT, Bill Maurer from ABM Industries, Ray Gogel, former President of Current Group and US Grid Co., Matt Key, CEO of everynet and three additional executives from Telecoms, Finance and Legal professions.

“We searched extensively to identify Advisors that can help us answer some of the big questions to support our SunCell® commercial launch next year” said Dr. Randell L. Mills, Founder, President and CEO of Brilliant Light Power, Inc. “This is a team of senior executives from future customers, partners and advisory groups that will help us shape what we offer and how we offer it as we prepare to go to market”.

Bill Maurer, SVP from ABM Industries Energy division said “it’s a great opportunity to be part of the team that will launch the technology that will change the way we think about energy in the future”

Matt Key, CEO of everynet said “Brilliant Light Power has put together a very sophisticated advisory group and they have given us some big questions to consider. The SunCell® technology is an incredible invention and we all look forward to helping the Company in achieving its full potential by transforming the worlds energy markets as we know them”

The Advisory Board will meet monthly and will be advising Brilliant Light Power on its the commercial offerings, launch markets, potential customers and organizational structure the Company will employ to deliver them.
