Free Energy has a wide range of meanings from the strict definition of the chemical sciences to the everyday meanings of free petrol, electricity etc. However there is misunderstood science, as well many scams, that try to persuade people that they can obtain free energy to run their heating, motors, transport and to create perpetual motion machines. Some websites use confusing terms and muddled thinking and some try and sell products that will produce free energy for life. A range of these will be discussed and analysed.
