№61 Q: How much energy is required to grow the crystals?


A: To produce 1 SH-box with a capacity 100 Kw/h, 700kW is used.

№60 Q: How can you weigh the risks against the possibility of success? Is this proposal logical and viable? What obstacles and risks does this technology have, and what is the estimated probability of success?

A: The risks are more political than anything. In the case of rapid technology implementation and SH-box production, previous investments in the oil and gas sectors can go down in value. For instance, to extract 80 billion cubic meters of gas per year, a $40 billion USD investment is needed in the gas industry. Gas is shipped to combustion factories, where it’s then converted into electricity and ready for distribution. By comparison, electricity produced in this manner is the equivalent of 300,000 SH-boxes.  But, to manufacture 300,000 SH-boxes, a $4 billion USD investment is needed. $40 billion verses $4 billion. And these are just capital expenses!


Operating costs are even more important. It costs $0.07 USD to buy and burn gas; $0.10 USD per kW for the end users. Again, $0.10 versus $0.03 per kW. The difference is drastic. Besides, our SH-boxes can be transported to rural areas for remote work without having to build power lines. That’s another operational expense we cut down on.


We are convinced that it’s time for a low-cost, alternative source of energy in the USA, China, Dominican Republic, etc. The entire world! We do not play politics - we are a commercial company. We do not fear persecution, either. We are a team. We protect information about this technology. We cannot be bought for cheap. We have high expectations for both our team and the partners who decide to join us. We invite all interested parties to work together in helping us solve the world’s energy crisis. We can bring about a better tomorrow. All it takes is one great idea.

№59 Q: Readiness of the market: Does the market provide any good opportunities for new products? Does this technology have any convincing and clear advantage over competing products, with the supply and profit from service implementation?


A: From a technical standpoint, a municipal network (smart grid) can receive any quantity of SH-boxes and the electricity they generate. Our Boxes are ready to operate with existing city grids. Let me repeat – NO CONSTRUCTION MODIFCATIONS WOULD BE NECESSARY to implement our technology. Think of the world’s grid as one giant plug, and the SH-box as a socket. The only problem is the difference in electrical socket shape between the US and Europe, but that’s easily resolved with an adaptor. To connect an SH-box to a network, it needs to be situated in a convenient city location. Next, simply connect the power cable to enable electricity generation. From a business standpoint, it makes financial sense for any city to cut electricity costs down to $0.03 kW USD. Moreover, the service fee for generating energy is already included in this price. The whole concept of the SH-box is quite simple and straightforward, really.


Currently, city authorities face numerous problems related to the price of gas, fuel storage, and combustion equipment costs.  As a result, electricity prices in Asia have reached $0.12-0.18 per kW. If city has a coal power plant, their problems are multiplied; the production price is $0.04-0.06 per kW.


Competitors: See characteristics of solar modules in our business plan (you can view this information on our website). A solar battery can only operate for a maximum of 8-hours a day, while our SH-box can run for a full 24-hours. The lifespan of a diesel generator is approximately 6,000 hours; far less than the SH-box, and yet it’s twice as expensive (not to mention the environmental issues).

№58 Q: The period of development: How many additional development processes are required before this technology can be introduced to the market? How much time and how much will it cost until I can expect to see a profit receipt?

A: We have practiced growing crystals for 1 W - 100 kW SH-boxes. Dozens of SH-box prototypes were manufactured. We have already “crossed that river,” so to speak, and do not require any additional time for development. We have also studied components for growing crystals of various designs. As of the beginning of 2013, we can produce SH-boxes of any capacity. As mentioned before, we do not require any additional time for this stage of the project.


After signing an agreement with a partner, we expect to introduce the SH-box to their market in 2-3 years. According to The Agreement, we require a one-year period for a factory project. This project will be handled by our partner in Germany. This one-year period includes testing and adjusting our Boxes under their country’s conditions. Let’s say a partner wants to produce and distribute SH-boxes in Northern Canada. Then we will test our Boxes and components in climate conditions resembling Northern Canada. Quality is of the utmost importance to us. We go that extra length to ensure product satisfaction.   


After completing a factory project, a one-year period is needed to construct an on-site factory. During this year, we will continue testing Box samples. We require three-months for factory start-up, after which, the factory will run smoothly with regularly scheduled maintenance.

№57 Q: Management team: Who are the people involved in this technology? What is their biography, the level of trust, previous success examples? What is their experience of introducing new technology to target markets and territories?


 A: The management team of our company consists of seven members, who have rich experience in the areas of intellectual property rights and implementation. We are ready to discuss joint-business ventures with potential partners and take our technology to market in America, Europe and Asia. Unfortunately, our team has no experience working with partners in Africa. We have an excellent team of lawyers in the USA, London, Geneva and Singapore. Our NRGLab top managers have been working with that group of countries for more than twenty years. We have strong operations and investments teams in Guangzhou (China) and Singapore. We have been cooperating with the operations team in Spain for more than twenty years. We have our own laboratory in the USA, where we have successfully developed and implemented several technologies. Two of our top managers live and work in Israel. Another operates out of Switzerland.


There are no failures or losers on our team. We carefully select our advisors and staff. Before they come to work with us, we put them through a rigorous three-month trial period, which is followed by an additional six-month probation period. We sign employment contracts with potential staff only after we’ve received positive technical evaluations of their work from at least two of our opponents.

№56 Q:  Independent tests conduction: Have all the aforementioned technology characteristics been approved by well-known independent laboratories? Do they have enough test data to back up their claims?

A: We work with two leading laboratories on general research, such as: crystal lifespan without a work load, crystal lifespan under a work load, crystal lifespan under short circuit, power loss dynamics up to 1,000 hours under a stressful work load, etc.  The main problem with working with laboratories is IP protection: we can’t leave our samples with them, and they aren’t too eager to travel to our laboratory. So at the moment, we have a limited number of independent lab documents included in our business plan, which is available on our website.


We also work closely with several companies and research groups who study crystal growing components. These components are being made for us in several factories. It is crucial to have stable, reliable relationships with factories with long running market experience. These factories have provided us with a sufficient amount of quality components to begin production on the SH-box.

№55 Q: How is this technology protected - with any patents, trade secrets, etc.? Does the owner of this technology have the way (and the power / force) to protect it from being copied, and are they capable to eliminate or control the violations?

A: As of 2007, our technology is protected by the safest and simplest method – NO patents filled. We are planning to start working on legal IP protection this year. We are going to file our first three patents by the end of 2013 or beginning of 2014. Currently, all the materials for these patents are prepared, and we continue to add positive testimonials and feedback from other well-known laboratories to our business plan. In the coming decades, we will have to work on hundreds of patents regarding this technology. The same applies to anyone else desiring to work in this industry. We will do our best to make sure our partners and investors feel secure across-the-board, including legal protection. 

№54 Q:What are the key elements and the basis of this technology? Is there an explanation for this phenomenon? Have there been any incidents of crystal failure? Does it all make sense?

A: The phenomenon of generating natural energy from heat given off by the environment has been recorded by many witnesses. Our specialists have been working with this phenomenon for almost six years. All the testimonies are certified (either by a notary or witness), and none of the witnesses will deny what they saw. As of the beginning of 2013, the first generation Boxes operate for more than 8,000 hours. The other Boxes are younger; they operate for 4,000 and 1,000 hours respectively, but function quite well.


Why do crystals generate energy from environmental heat? We know the answer and theory, but can’t announce it publicly due to IP protection. Our lab has tested and witnessed crystal failure under different conditions. We’ve experimented with different components and gathered statistics about materials, temperatures, loads, crystal interaction; different humidity levels; hostile environments; our crystals’ functionality in the open air, in the sun, etc. Our laboratory in the USA records all incidents of crystal failure, and we continue to collect the data necessary to improve our technology.


It is impossible to mention numerous and diverse experiments in one brief answer - the amount of information would be excessive. Our technology is protected from competitors and those disguised as “friends” who are interested in destroying our invention, or stopping it from going to market.

№53 Q: Was any of the R&D funded by US Gov’t or DARPA?

A: Our team never works with the government, because easy money destroys scientific objectivity. We know a lot of scientists who are employed by the government. We see them at conferences and hold nothing against them. However, we never work with them. We never ask them for help. Because 99% of them are shallow-brained scientists. We don’t really want to waste our time working with people with shallow standards. For instance, read some “scientific” comments left in response to the physical phenomenon described on our website, and you will see that 99% of the audience is not capable of understanding crucial information stated in our documents. We have received more than 2,000 e-mails in response to our invention, and only about 15 of them were sent from real professionals. It is nice to respond to e-mails like those. We work with a few talented people, because they are not easy to find. We have invited one scientist to work in our laboratory in the USA and we will gladly offer him a long-term contract. To sum things up, we are a results-oriented scientific team; a collective working towards a common goal of improving the future for all mankind.

№52 Q: Who is the inventor of this technology? Is this person a widely recognized leader in this field? Does he/she have other similar patents and inventions, successful products, etc.?


A: Our Company consists of an international group of inventors with a wide-range of specialties. The youngest is 35 years old; the most experienced is 74. All of the members of our team belong to the “Shell” group of entrepreneurs and inventors – a group that has been working on growing crystals to generate cost-effective electrical energy for both industrial and residential use. They are engaged in a program called “Polycrystalline Energy for Industrial and Residential Use”.


Our specialists hold dozens of patents in different countries. However, we are unable to provide further details for commercial reasons and due to strong NDAs between companies and inventors. A number of products created by our inventors have been successfully implemented and are currently used in various industries.

№51 Q: Can I install SH Box in the shade?

A: SH module (SH BOX) generates electricity when exposed to environment (indoors or outdoors). It does not require any sunlight for its work.

№50 Q: After reading your test data you state that the samples will last about 8,000 hours under constant load but you also state that the cells have a life span of 20 years, if the cell is used constantly for 20 years that is 175,200 hours. Do the cells need to be replenished in some way to keep them operating?


A: Let’s suppose that the SH Box generator serves 250,000 hours. That is possibly too much? However, the technology of creating SH Box generators based on our crystals appeared just 7 years ago, and none of our generators has worked out its service life yet. The first generator was produced at the end of 2011. It continues to work until now under a constant load, that is approximately 8,000 hours.  Let’s assume, that SH Box sold to a customer serves 250, 0000 hours (almost 25 years). So to know whether the SH Box has worked out its service life, we need more than 20 years. We do not believe that a progress should wait for so long. Everyone has a right to save money by using SH Boxes.


It is difficult to determine exactly how long the SH Box will serve. However, no matter how it goes, one thing we know is that the service life of the SH Boxes is significantly longer than the service life of any battery, accumulator, or even a solid-fuel element or common fuel generator. The service life depends mainly on the fulfillment of the production conditions, components quality and subsequent operating conditions. A great number of tests and experiments performed by NRGLab through the end of 2012 allows us to make the calculated (theoretical) conclusions about a possible service life of 20 years and more of the SH Box. When NRGLab states that the SH Box will serve you 20 years or more, you should take into account that a power flow of the generator will be decreasing gradually over this period due to an inherent parameter of the SH Box (or any other generator) such as a decrease of electrical power flow. If we switch on the SH Box and start waiting until it completely stops providing electricity, then theoretically we can wait for this moment a hundred years or more, but the power flow will gradually become less and less. In reality, we need to get from the SH Box the particular electric power output (as we know per hour electricity consumption of our family). Going beyond this output, the SH Box should be replaced. For this reason NRGLab has identified two thresholds, which upon reaching the SH Box is considered as out of service. These two thresholds are 30% degradation of an electrical flow and 50% degradation of an electrical flow. Both are connected with economical efficiency. The threshold of 30% degradation is relevant when using the SH Box within 10 years. If the power of the SH Box falls below this threshold, then the company will replace the SH Box at its own expense. The threshold of 50% degradation is relevant when using the SH Box within 20 years. If the power of the SH Box falls below 50% within 20 years and moves to this power decrease according to a given curve of the power decrease (on an even basis), then the SH Box is considered standard and will not be replaced.


These thresholds involve the “quality” of crystals that are inside the SH Box and are responsible for the generation of electricity from the environmental heat. Each SH Box will have a mark “service life up to 250,000 hours,” as mentioned above there will be a  decrease of electrical power flow . Based on this “natural” decrease we can say of theoretically sustainable service of the SH Boxes of 20 years with a decrease of electrical power flow within 5 to 8 years by up to 2% annually (SH Box is under a continuous load). By following 10 years with a decrease of 3% annually (SH Box is under a continuous load).  The curve of the power decrease and outputs will be specified in product specification. 


So, the estimated service life of the SH Box in the product specification is 20 years. Theoretically, the crystals used in the SH Boxes should have almost an unlimited service life.  NRGLab performs numerous express (under a heavy loads) tests on exploitation of the SH Boxes to evaluate their real service life. Here are examples of two tests:


1. The SH Box was short circuited for 3,000 hours with a breakage of short circuit every 5 seconds.  The power loss was 3% (total power loss) after 3,000 hours.


2. The SH Box was short circuited for 2,400 hours.  Upon short circuit breakage the SH Box was producing power. The power loss (total power loss) was 10% after 2,400 hours.

№49 Q:  When do you think that the Poly-Crystal generators will be available to residential customers in the U.S.?



A: Based on our strategy we are looking for a local partner for each territory who knows the market and on whom we can rely for all the sales. The technology license rights for the US are still available and the production for the consumers is planned within 2 years and 3 months upon license assignment to a local partner, meaning that SH Boxes can be available on the US market in 2015.

№48 Q: Since the SH Box generates energy from heat, does it require a heat gradient? Will it work as well at any temperature?


А: The SH Box needs environment heat for its work. The temperature range for SH Box operation is from -60 0C to +550C. The SH Box doesn’t require any heat gradient.

A: Yes, their guess is that a certification process will be similar to solar batteries.



№11 Q: Do you have any extended test data including max loads over 1000-5000 hours that we can review?


A: No, as we are protecting our IP and not giving our samples to any third party hands for tests.



№10 Q: Are there any beta sites or current users that we could ask questions to?


A: Yes, you can address all your questions to us.



№9 Q: Are there any potential safety concerns or hazardous materials?


A: No.



№8 Q: Why do you refer to ‘kW/H’ of energy for a DC energy device (without considering how you convert to AC)?


A: The conversion of DC to AC is done by simple calculations.



№7 Q: Your reference to kw/H is confusing when your devices only produce DC power, and most utility power is sold as AC power, @50 or 60 hertz AC; typically at 120 or 240, or 440 VAC!


A: The inverter and our team will resolve your concerns by simple calculations.



№6 Q: Have you actually setup and tested any utility scale AC power systems, or done any grid interconnects?


A: Yes. As usual, the power output is reduced to support the invertor. 



№5 Q: Do you intend to assist the licensees with such issues and regulations, and grid interconnection approvals and concerns?


James Dunn

Energy Technology Consultants

A: We support but not assist as we are not familiar with local regulations in every territory. That is why we are looking for an experienced local partner.


№4 Q: Please send information regarding rights for your ambient energy generator with regard to North America, Europe and Australia.

A: We do not plan any auctioning in North America and Australia in 2013.

№3 Q: Why are some of the faces blurred in your video?


A: We are trying to protect our technical team. All other faces were blurred just in case, as we blurred their personal info from the documents. It’s a standard legal practice.

№2 Q: Can I speak to someone from the test to see if it has really happened?


A: you can find various public companies in our test documents including the biggest law firms in Singapore. You may contact them for verification.
