Dear Mr. W*****
Thank you for your interest, and we hope you find our book, Energy from the Vacuum: Concepts and Principles, of much interest to you. I'm presently working on some long-needed corrections to classical thermodynamics, necessitated by several flaws in its foundations and also by the application of Leyton's hierarchies of symmetry with its self-organizing new object-oriented geometry. Justification for energy from the vacuum is now very rigorous, with some 20 papers in the refereed literature by the Alpha Foundation's Institute for Advanced Study. Two of those papers use higher group symmetry electrodynamics --- one uses O(3) and the other uses Sachs's electrodynamics --- to show how the MEG permissibly takes extra energy from the active curved spacetime. The two papers are:

M. W. Evans, P. K. Anastasovski, T. E. Bearden, et al., "Explanation of the Motionless Electromagnetic Generator by Sachs's Theory of Electrodynamics," Foundations of Physics Letters, 14(4), 2001, p. 387-393.
Another paper of direct interest is: M. W. Evans, T. E. Bearden, and A. Labounsky, "The Most General Form of the Vector Potential in Electrodynamics," Foundations of Physics Letters, 15(3), June 2002, p. 245-261.
We appreciate your interest in potential licensing of the MEG. All rights to the MEG are assigned to Magnetic Energy Ltd., whose CEO is Dr. Lee Kenny. I'm forwarding a copy of this correspondence to him. His E-mail is given in the addressees above.
We are not licensing at this time, since we are still seeking a substantial development funding partner to enable the additional research necessary to go from our present successful little laboratory experiments to full-up power systems for production and marketing worldwide. When we have our first robust prototype in the home-powering output range, then we will move forward on production, marketing, and licensing.
The MEG is highly nonlinear and uses geometric phase (Aharonov-Bohm effect) to provide an extra free energy reservoir, in addition to the normal energy reservoir where one inputs the energy and pays for it. By having two energy reservoirs instead of the usual one, and by the second one being freely furnished and replenished by the active local curved spacetime, we can thus draw more energy from the unit than we ourselves input. The principle is analogous to the common heat pump process, except instead of a conventional extra energy reservoir (the surrounding atmosphere) we use the surrounding uncurled (field-free) magnetic vector potential. Proof that the Aharonov-Bohm effect does provide just such an extra energy reservoir (e.g., outside a good toroidal coil) in the form of a curl-free magnetic vector potential, has been in physics since the 1950s, although it has not previously been applied in electrical power engineering.
Specialized work with the MEG in geometric phase, nonlinear oscillations, control of nonlinear oscillations, and higher group symmetry electrodynamics is required in order to (1) develop a practical engineering model for effective scale-up design and prototyping, and (2) go into formal production engineering to develop full production units for various power sizes and applications.
We also still have two or more additional patents to file, from work already in progress.
Very best wishes,
Magnetic Energy LTD.
