News, Reviews & Discussion of EEStor Inc. & Quantumscape Corporation
More than a few were confused by the claims I recorded in my last blog article. What does it mean? What is its significance? These questions apparently will have to be answered over the course of time. But let's start with a very basic, fundamental concept of EEStory: transparency.
Many of you, like me, have watched the EEStory drama unfold over the past 5…Continue
Occasionally, you have an idea which you think might be good but you aren't sure how good it is or what impact it could possibly have. Cautious people sit on the idea and hope it grows like a mushroom in the dark. Adventurers throw it up on twitter and see what reaction it brings from the masses. But…
Everyone by now should be aware that for a very long time, I've been bitching and moaning and complaining and grumbling about how ZENN should conduct 3rd party testing of EEStor samples. Specifically, I have been proposing that ZENN publish their test protocols, test gear, test…Continue
About a month ago, after Dave Evans completed his initial tour and overview of EEStor and after Weir had demonstrated his test setups and testing protocols, both men adjourned to the conference room for a visit to the white board. Evans started drawing and according to Dick Weir said, "I'm going…Continue
Anyway, for fun, I came across this November 2005 ZENN press release. That is 8 years ago people. Some of you weren't even retired back…Continue
I think it is worthwhile to remind everyone about possible outcomes from the testing from Evans' capacitor. Ordinarily, I wouldn't go to the trouble but last night Rudyard Istvan stopped by chat and strongly insinuated (albeit mildly ambiguously) that he had spoken to Dave Evans and received the following idea: that Evans is delayed in publishing negative information about EEStor until he can get…Continue
After ZENN's August announcement of a plans to raise money and to buy out Kleiner (i.e., "the vendor") shares in EEStor, we encountered a floundering set of 3rd party testing events which didn't inspire passion among EEStory observers. The purported dog and pony show…Continue
After reaching Dave Evans this morning in his office, I was able to acquire a brief update on some of the issues of interest to readers here with his testing of EEStor samples. I guess the main issue to me personally is in the disclosure department. Recall that Evans originally said he would not…Continue
A lot of attention and money has been advanced over the years in the name of climate change. These funds have gone to companies, initiatives and programs focused on eliminating carbon emissions from transportation, cities, farm animals, and Earth itself. These initiatives, at…Continue

An occasional expert research contributor to TheEEStory has connected a few dots for me which I think in the interest of full disclosure deserves some sunlight. Before I go into this, let me say that I don't think anyone involved in ZENN has improperly failed to disclose anything material or controversial. The published material always seems to have the legally…Continue
I just received this from Power Symmetry
We will be issuing a press release shortly and you will get a copy through this email as a result of your registering at the website.
The details of our technology partner will be included in the press release.…Continue
A lot has happened in the last 5 or so years. We had a market crash. Wrapped up a couple wars. A great deal of renewable energy companies came and went. But Lockheed Martin is still there. EEStor is still there. I am still there. You are still there. The blog is still there. Y_Po, EE-Tom, TV, Zenn. All there. Where is there? I asked Lockheed Martin that question…Continue
If you are a long time EEStory follower, you probably better sit down. Grab a beverage of your choice and clear your mind because we have some thinking to do. Don't worry, this is the fun type of thinking you enjoy as a function of being addicted to EEStory.
First point. An interesting website came online this week. Hhhmmm. Not a big deal in and of itself but it has a grid leveling…Continue
Dave Evans believes he will need about a month after receiving EEStor samples to properly test them. I learned this after speaking with him via phone this evening. He will travel to EEStor next week to gain an understanding of Weir's technology and testing approach. He will then receive samples to be tested at his…Continue
Lockheed Martin preferred supplier, Evans Capacitor has been chosen by ZENN and EEStor to provide independent testing of EEStor's energy storage technology. The East Providence, RI firm currently "manufactures high energy density…Continue
