A French company, Power JMD, appears to have an exotic free energy device that is getting close to market (some time in "2013 or 2014").
From what I can gather, it uses some kind of rotational mechanism that is able to self-loop and provide excess energy; and it is fairly bulky and fairly well engineered. Somewhere, I saw that the return on investment (pay for unit from savings on electricity bill) is estimated to be between 3 and 5 years.
On their site, they say: "With the POWERJMD system, you will get an independent and almost free ecologic source of electricity. Even the most remote areas will have access to this electricity..."
And on their "goals" page, they say: "This new system has the potential to end the mass production of electric energy as we know it today.""Who has not dreamed of producing his own electricity? The infatuation for photovoltaic energy, windmills, etc., validate this new choice of energy. ...The POWERJMD system can provide it!"The POWERJMD system does not pollute and emits very little noise. The system is designed for safety, and there is little risk of fire."Here is a generator for every use: Homes, apartment buildings, industry, commercial centers, and municipalities."
In October, 2011, they posted a video that shows someone starting up the system labeled: “Power JMD MBMBC 7kVA: Free Electricity” with it plugged into mains power. Then, after flipping some switches, he disconnects the cord and plugs in a jigsaw to show the system powering a load -- allegedly from power coming from the unit.
Then, in February, 2013, they posted a video of a second prototype, this one even larger. The website states: "The weight of the 10 kWh [sic] unit shown in the video is around 350 pounds." And "The standard soundproof casing will handle up to 60 KWH [sic] models. The small models ... can be moved manually, while the large models may require a fork-lift truck."
In their videos, they don't attempt to give a demo that will be skeptic proof, other than having the prototype on rollers ruling out hidden power cords. They don't run it long enough to rule out batteries on board, as that would take many days, given the size of the container. Such testing would have to be done by independent third parties.
As you go to their website contact page, and click on Complete Form, you are taken to a page that says: "I can not give any prices at this time. It is simply too early to provide realistic pricing. However this completed form will allow us to notify you when prices are available or changes occur." And it states: "For major installations please be aware that two units may be desirable to compensate for any system failure. Care should be taken in selecting the site of the installation." It then lists three types to choose from, each offered with the option of "single phase" or "tri-phase", and each with a range of power output, ranging from 5 kW to 206 kW. But on the "News" page, under "Future plans", they say: "The goal is to develop different models (from 3-4 KVA to 30-40 KVA)."
The contact form closes with a note: "Depending on the country of installation, units will [be] delivered with 110 - 220 to 380 Volts. For specific applications, low voltage, mixed, higher powers, etc... Provide details in your message!"
Once they do consider going into beta testing, I would guess that their first choice would be with those customers who have a strong electrical background, so as to be able to install and maintain their unit.
But according to their "News" page, the "June" entry states, simply: "Main current difficulties are finding industrial premises and funds."
I have sent Power JMD 2-3 emails asking for more info over the past week, and on June 20, inventor, Jean Marc Dechamboux, responded.
Based on what information is available so far, I'm tentatively posting them on the Q-mo-gen page (which is #1 in our Top 5), near the top of the companies listed there, after MSVEX and before E-MAG.
