    Does anyone know anything about this "electromagnetic induction" idea? After a quick review of the Phoenix website, it looks like over-unity hokum to me.

    It sounds like a PMM to me too. Heating water with electromagnetic induction (which can be done) in order to generate electricity can't possibly produce surplus energy. It strikes me that it is likely the person proposing it doesn't understand that an induction heater uses electrical energy....a confusion we see here a lot.

    Thread locked.
