SPEGG Demo Delayed until October 27.
(As of Aug. 23, 1:00 am GMT)
LONDON, ENGLAND On August 24 in London, Environ Energy plans to demonstrate what present science says is impossible: a gravity motor. They have been announcing the event since at least February of this year.
Energy companies, reporters, and large electricity users have been invited to the unveiling.
Environ Energy advertises that they will be able to produce generators that range from between 10 kilowatts, enough to power a home, up to 2 gigawatts, which is the output of a large power plant.
The wheel is called the Waranlinc Wheel when on its own and called SPEGG (Semi-Perpetual Electrical Gravitational Generator) when connected to a generator. Environ Energy claims that "SPEGG uses no form of conventional fuel to generate electricity. It generates electricity by gravity and kinetic power only."
The Waranlinc Wheel is the brainchild of Courtney Bailey, developed over an eight-year period from 1996 to present. Bailey filed a string of British Patent Applications for the wheel and its subsystems. These applications occurred in 2000, 2001 and 2003.
According to Doug Derbes, who has been watching this company, the wheel uses stainless steel external sliders, which are a linear air compressor pump. The sliders compress the internal tanks, which then fire internalÂ pnuematic guns. The stainless steel bullets fired by these guns then rise to where they are held to create gravity potential on the top of the wheel. The high mass of the wheel and the high overbalance mass generate torque at low rpms.
At first glance, one would think that conventional laws of physics would predict a net zero for such an arrangement.
Derbes claims that "the Kilowatt outputs available for the different sizes are all based on well known mechanical engineering equations. The entire Waranlinc wheel and its external and internal subsystems are a synthesis of mechanical and pnuematic technologies. It is in essence a rotating air rifle using an offset mass overbalance to achieve constant rotation."
"We have not created a new form of energy," says the Environ Energy website. "All we have done is to take kinetic energy and store it at one point (this has now become potential energy), and release it at another point as mechanical energy. This is by way of gravity and kinetic force."
QUOTING FROM WEBSITE:
"The Waranlinc Wheel has 16 arms. Eight of the 16 arms has a bullet in it, these bullets run backward and forward. When the wheel spins, it avoids equilibrium. In other word one side of the wheel is kept heavy at all times.
"The main piston chamber spring is compressed on the up cycle and the ram is locked. This is now stored energy.
"The energy in the compressed chamber spring is released at the firing point, propelling a bullet weight upwards to the to the top where a one way gate is. This allows the bullet to go up but not come down.
"At the firing point the gate is kept open by two piston pushing down on the gate arm. Once the arm is in the energy-stored position, the piston reverts back into its hole.
"The energy stored in the main piston chamber spring is made possible by the large weight gliding up and down on the outer tube. The weight is attached to a piston that run up and down in the hydraulic chamber the kinetic movement of the outer weight is transferred via the piston through a sets of rods and onto the main piston chamber spring, which result in the ram arm locking (energy-stored).
"The energy in the spring is released at the firing point when past via two side rod, the two switch on the arm is pulled back there by firing the bullet.
"Starting the Waranlinc wheel is simple. The wheel is primed at an angle, and the brake applied. This means the wheel is unable to spin. Once the brake is taken off the wheel begins to spin. To stop the wheel, you apply the brakes."

Environ Energy's website has a page set up on their site where they will be posting videos on the day of the demonstration. They are also planning demos in the U.S. and Canada in November, then later in Asia.
The company's website says they will not be selling licenses, and that dealerships will only be granted to financially sound companies. They are leasing, not selling units, with service being coordinated through dealers and distributors.

Site home page has a computer rendered animation of the wheel in motion.
Site will show a video of demo device on Aug. 24, the day of debut.
