Thanks for the links - Awesome.
It absolutely repulses me tech like this was abandoned.
How can these people in power remain in power denying us potential.
Presidents will swear they love, honour & protect their country yet pollute it without thought for next generations and profit from it.
Truly amazing, why not fund 560bn dolllars into free energy instead of the pentagon.
How can this be tolerated!!!!
rant mode off.
I mean come on free energy, if it was real don’t you think we would be using it, would it not be a little bit cruel and down right evil to the poor and starving of this world if this technology existed to save them?

I'm sorry but big biz and others cannot bury something if it hits the net. Nor is there need for a patent to protect your riches - if it works and is so great for humanity - publish in detail.
The cars themselves don't need to be directly solar powered. There are quite a number of cars on the road that are indirectly solar powered with biodiesel (the stuff that sometimes smells like french fries when it's used). Of course, I could bring up the politics of ethanol and how we should be using sugar ethanol rather than corn ethanol, but that's a different debate.

Wind energy can be had for very cheap if you know where to look and what to do, it doesn't replace oil. Geo thermal is as "cheap" as the stirling engine and really depends on location (near to LARGE temp. differences). Solar is VERY far from free energy and will never power a car people will feel safe in. Even if a car was painted with 100% eff. solar cells, the most you could get is 5KW of power (6.7HP) and with todays stuff, its not going to make a dent. All of it put together would work for everything but transport, and yet people complain about things like wind turbines.
If electrical power was easy to transmit and there were no health problems due to it, people would be driving electric cars and gas would become very cheap. Now if super/ultra capacitors had the energy density of Ni-MH or even Li-ion, battery companies would need to make that switch very fast. Capacitors last ALOT longer then batteries as they dont rely on chemistry and they can be discharged to 0 volts and shorted.
As for free energy device becoming cold, the load would counter act some of that "coldness". That is if it even takes ambient heat and uses it, it could also use some quantum effect of space, time and unknown particles.
I took electronics Eng. in college FYI.
