The answer is a resounding YES! Revolutionary technologies will soon be able to demonstrate that cars, trucks, and buses can be manufactured as mobile power plants. When suitably parked, they will be able to sell electricity to utilities. Large parking lots and garages could generate multi-megawatts of electric power. The owners of such vehicles would buy them as investments, as well as transportation, capable of paying for themselves. Accelerating this development is a fast path to superseding fossil fuels.

A few candidates:  

Prototype self-recharging electric car. Examples involve systems that claim to tap ambient energy to replace an external recharge. Although none have yet proven practical, new science, and Hans Coler's device  -- rediscovered by Chava Energy -- suggest self-recharging magnetic systems will prove viable. An example is The Yildiz motor, consisting only of permanent magnets, plastic, and aluminum. The motor develops torque and could spin a generator to continually provide electricity.   Professor J. L. Duarte, of the Department of Electrical Engineering TU Eindhoven, the Netherlands, writes about this remarkable motor.  

The BlackLight Power - BLP - Catalyst-Induced Hydrino Transition - CIHT. BLP claims this fuel cell may power a car that is the size and weight of a Prius more than 5,000 miles on one gallon of ordinary water. The CIHT has been verified at the 10-Watt level by six independent studies. Included were Ph.D.s from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the California Institute of Technology. 150 watts is the next target and would prove scalability.

The same remarkable new energy source employed by BLP, fractional Hydrogen, allows a barrel of ordinary water to become the energy equivalent of 200 barrels of oil.

Chava's analysis of fractional Hydrogen differs substantially from that of BLP but also uses fractional Hydrogen, which releases hundreds of times more energy than is achieved by burning hydrogen.

Chava will commercialize fractional Hydrogen as ECHO - Energy from Collapsing Hydrogen Orbits. Chava is developing an ECHO-fueled version of a Self-Powered Internal-Combustion Engine trademarked SPICE: The SPICE concept is an evolution of successful experimental work with engines that began with NASA over forty years ago.

SPICE-powered cars and trucks, once successfully developed, could provide a cost-competitive and rapid transitional technology using the century of experience with current car engines and their existing production capacity. This opens the way to producing clean energy cheaply and may allow a car to travel 1,000 miles on a gallon of water. It could also be used in electric-gas hybrid vehicles as a built-in 'unlimited' range extender.

A car with a hybrid SPICE, fueled by a small amount of water, can become a power plant when suitably parked, selling electricity to the local utility. No wires required.

Proposed Tesla LENR-powered car by Nicolas Chauvin, LENR Cars. He states: "Batteries are autonomously recharged overnight - a single refill of fuel is enough to drive 28,000 miles, costs $200, and lasts a year -- a small refill cartridge is based on nickel powder." LENR ("Cold Fusion") is being pursued by NASA and several small companies.

Wireless, Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) technologies, developed and proven for buses, can be applied to any of these systems that prove practical.

All of these are Black Swans, Nassim Nicholas Taleb's label for highly improbable inventions. However, several of them are now emerging. The likelihood is that at least one or two revolutionary new technologies will demonstrate the potential to transform the energy arena.

Auto executives worry about the loss of market, as young people instead buy smartphones. Vehicles as power plants promise explosive market growth.

Angels can speed this development. A financial invention, at least as important as any technology breakthrough, makes it possible to do so without loss, with a guaranteed minimum 8% annual return.
