The collective interaction of electron neutrinos with a dense non-stationary plasma is described here. This effect can eventually lead to a significant loss of energy of the neutrinos emitted by a collapsing supernova. The present effect is an exact analogue of the photon acceleration in an ionization front. We present here a classical estimate of the neutrino energy losses and also give the corresponding quantum description.
