This One Device Eats Up HALF of All Generated Power
Did you know that a full half of all the energy produced globally is consumed by electric motors?
That's over $3 trillion worth of electricity, or 5% of the total global economy, spent on a simple process where current running through a magnetic field is transformed into rotational force.
Electric motors come in all shapes and sizes. They range from some of the smallest machines ever built to giant engines capable of propelling a ship 10 times as massive as the Titanic.
That's an incredible amount of energy, worth more than the entire gross domestic product (GDP) of the UK, all committed to the same exact process.
Shocking, right? Well, that's how important electric motors are to us. They're everywhere. They make everything work. And they've been doing it for almost 200 years.
Now, you'd think that after two centuries of nonstop development, there would have been a number of major technical innovations.
But here's the surprising truth: Electric motors haven't seen a single fundamental evolution since their very advent.
Almost as Basic as the Wheel Itself...
It's been made bigger. It's been made of different materials. It's been standardized and perfected with modern manufacturing processes.
But in all those 200 years, nobody's made any real changes to the basic motor.
The electric motor is today what it was when horses were the main mode of transportation: a single copper wire wound around a spool within a cylinder that contains magnets.
And that means even the high-tech motors Elon Musk puts into every Tesla vehicle to hit the road are nothing more than antiques dressed up with modern finishes.
Well, all that is about to change.
And if the size of the electric motor market or the fact that it hasn't been changed since long before the gas engine was even invented shocks you, get ready to be shocked again...
Because the company that's already marketing a new, more efficient electric motor design isn't some industrial giant like General Electric (NYSE: GE), a carmaker like Ford (NYSE: F), or even some tech-crazed dot-com empire like Google (NASDAQ: GOOG)...
This innovator, which now controls patents to the first true evolution of the electric motor, is a true-to-life technology startup with a total market capitalization of less than $20 million.

A Corporate David-and-Goliath Story Is Unfolding as You Read This
The motors it's building today have efficiency ratings that beat everything out there.
And that means not only will the new generation use less energy, but they'll also be smaller, cost less to maintain, and last longer.
All that means a huge advantage to anything that uses electric motors to work.
But it also means an even bigger advantage for another major industry: power generation.
After all, power generators are just electric motors working in reverse.
Instead of putting electricity in to make the shaft spin, you spin the shaft and power comes out.
It's the same for every generator out there, from the modern wind turbines dotting the hills of San Bernardino County to the oldest steam-driven generators going back to the 19th century.
The principal behind them all is the same. The only alternative means of creating electricity is through solar cells.
Which means 99% of all the power we produce globally comes out of one basic mechanism: the generator.
That makes the following revelation all the more important.
You see, a few weeks ago, I got a phone call from the CEO of this company.
“We're About to Change the World... Wanna Join Us?”
Now, I'm no newbie to the game of salesmanship, so I was hesitant to believe the scope of this thing at first.
But after the 30-minute conversation was over, I knew I would never view the world the same way again.
It was like I'd spoken to Thomas Edison himself and heard his plans months before the rest of the world had any idea what was happening.
But the alarming fact of the matter is that it's happening now, and it's happening fast.
This company's product is already entering the market.
It's already signed licensing deals to put this technology into a wide array of commercial products.
Its stock is already responding.
I immediately got down to writing a research report on this company because one thing was clear: If I didn't, somebody else would beat me to it.
And I'd lose the opportunity of a lifetime: to tell my readers about one of the most important technical achievements since before the American Civil War.
There's no more time to waste.
