Imagine that Mr. X should someday discover a method of tapping into the zero-point-energy (Please do not discuss feasibility in this thread). This enables Mr. X to design and fabricate machines that convert the tapped into energy, into a limitless source of electricity.
How would you advise Mr.X to proceed to Monetize his discovery?
*- Should he patent his discovery and wait for the proceeds?
*- Should he solicit private investments and market the discovery
*- Should he approach established energy Organizations such as power grids?
*- Should he keep the discovery a secret and fabricate devises in secret and sell the resulting electricity half price? Starting with limited clients in small geographic zones and increase it's market share over time?
Please feel free to elaborate.
I would choose option 4 myself.
Thanks in advance.
