Brillouin Energy Presents on Capitol Hill


Brillouin Energy Corp. presented its groundbreaking thermal energy technology on Capitol Hill last week. Attendees included Members of Congress, congressional aides, federal government officials, industry representatives, and citizens’ groups concerned with the federal government’s progress on developing clean energy solutions.

“It was great to see that much interest in DC for a true safe green nuclear power technology,” commented Brillouin’s President and Chief Technology Officer, Robert Godes.

Attendees were able to learn about Brillouin’s prototype LENR reactors and hear from a number of speakers, including Dr. Michael McKubre of Stanford Research International (SRI). Brillouin and SRI have entered into a technology research agreement under which SRI is engaged in calibration testing and independent analysis of the Brillouin technology.

As Dr. McKubre noted in a report distributed at the event, “it is very clear that something on the order of four times (4x) and potentially more gain in power (and therefore ultimately energy) was achieved at an impressive and industrially significant operating temperature of around 640°C. To my knowledge this had not been achieved before in the LENR field. The fact that the Q pulse input is capable of triggering the excess power on and off is also highly significant.”

In addition, Dr. Banning Garrett, former Strategic Foresight Senior Fellow at the Atlantic Council, was also present and issued a report detailing the current status of the LENR field and credibility of Brillouin’s claims. As Dr. Garrett noted, “LENR power generation, if realized, has the potential to become one of the technologies for transformation of the global energy system.”

Brillouin’s breakthrough technology is now garnering national and international attention and the company looks forward to working with government and industry leaders to bring this technology to market.

Swedish Paper May Explain LENR

Rickard Lundin and Hans Lidgren, two Swedish scientists, claim they may have found the source of excess energy in LENR, describing their theory in a paper called Nuclear Spallation and Neutron Capture Induced by Ponderomotive Wave Forcing (full length paper here) which will be presented on Friday, October 16, at the 11th International Workshop on Anomalies in 
Hydrogen Loaded Metals, hosted by Airbus in Toulouse, France.

Their theory described ponderomotive forces at resonance frequencies excite neutrons from elements such as deuterium and lithium, and that these neutrons are then captured by a metallic matrix, resulting in a net energy release.

We demonstrate that nuclear energy may be derived from a two-stage process: 1) thermal neutron spallation induced by resonant Ponderomotive wave forcing, and 2) isotopic transmutations by thermal neutron capture of heavier elements. While the former (spallation) consumes energy, the latter (neutron capture) produces energy, the combined process leading to a net energy output. The combined process is here labeled Resonant Isotopic Transmutation of Nuclides, RIToN.

(NAVSEA) Presentation on LENR

Louis F. DeChiaro, Ph.D, a physicist with the US Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) gave an LENR presentation at a IEEE Meeting entitled “LENR Phenomena and Potential Applications” held on Sept. 23,2015 at Teradyne in North Reading, Massachusetts.

See the full presentation here.

The Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project received a statement from an unnamed source at the Naval Research Labs regarding LENR research. The statement has been posted in full on the MFMPs Facebook Page here:

Fortune Magazine Interviews Tom Darden

A prominent North Carolina investor is backing a new kind of fusion that operates at much lower temperatures than thought possible, which would make it easier to commercialize. So far the early results show promise.

Tom Darden is with Cherokee Investment Fund.  Under the trade name, Industrial Heat LLC, his group has invested over $10 million in Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat technology which makes use of LENR.

Infinite Energy: Brillouin Energy

Infinite Energy has posted a nice article on Brillouin Energy and its founder Robert Godes.  Brillouin consistently demonstrates with its ongoing collaboration with SRI to be a leader in the LENR field and the pursuit of commercialization of their technology.

Fran Tanzella from SRI declares that SRI has interacted with Robert and the Brillouin team over the past three years and have come to believe that the early high-pressure “Wet Boiler” results were reproducible, controllable and significant. “I personally presented that work at ICCF17 because I believe it is real and important,” Tanzella says.

Rossi Receives U.S. Patent

On August 25, 2015, Leonardo Corporation (Andrea Rossi) received a patent for a unique fluid heater.  LENR theory is not specifically mentioned in it, but the fuel mixture of 50% Nickel powder with grain size 1nm to 100μm, 20% Elemental Lithium powder, and 30% Lithium Aluminum Hydride is disclosed.

The world waits to see if LENR and Rossi’s E-Cat and Hot-Cat technology will revolutionize our energy industries for the better.

How To: Cheat Nuclear Fusion

While no miraculous cold fusion device has yet been definitively proven to work, the dream of cheating physics, of finding a backdoor to a seemingly unattainable process, is still alive and well. Maybe one day, Pons and Fleischmann will be proven right, and all of our energy needs will be wiped away, but until then we can still look forward to the ultimate way to cheat our way into usable nuclear fusion.

A Paradigm $hift

Oil prices have been in a free fall for the past year.  In just the past month, prices have collapsed more than 20%.  We may be witnessing the first step in a shift of the paradigm of cyclical oil markets and a softening of our future dependency on fossil fuels.  The volatility in oil prices is not over, but our current low prices and the general expectation of continued low prices, means there is less market resistance against embracing the inevitable.  There will be huge restrictions and carbon taxes levied against the petroleum industry in the near future.  Climate change or not, technology and alternative energy sources are becoming more attractive to the market.  Governments all over the globe are embracing the vision of a carbon-free world where we aren’t dependent upon the oil cartels and unexpected price swings.  I think some of this sentiment is starting to be priced into the oil markets and revised expectations on future demands and profits are materializing.

The door is wide open for LENR to completely destroy this paradigm.  As investors, scientists and world leaders catch wind of LENR and start to look for ways to materialize a carbon-free world, LENR will gain the attention it deserves.  LENR has been categorically ignored for over 25 years, but there is too much revolutionary potential in it to ignore it forever.  Companies like Brillouin Energy, Industrial Heat LLC, LENUCO and countless other experimenters will have a head start in understanding what many readers here already know about LENR.

The motivation to push LENR over the edge will be profits.  Oil’s free fall will erase over $4 trillion dollars in revenue over the coming years.  Now imagine dissatisfied investors learn of a new technology that could potentially fulfill all of our energy needs.  It’s ironic that the pursuit of wealth may unlock one of the most selfless gifts to the world, but Bill Gates himself recently compared the search for renewable technologies with the early days of the technology industry and predicted that some investors will make a lot of money.  Money is the way of the world and even if you can’t help invest, you can be proud that you were the first person in your group to recognize LENR and you can now simply sit back and enjoy the show.

Boeing Patent for Nuclear Driven Engine

Fresh on the heels of the Airbus LENR patent, Boeing has now applied for a patent for a engine making use of a thermonuclear fusion process powered by lasers.  Our readers will certainly see the LENR undertones to this patent.  Read the full article here.

The race for the next generation power source for aviation is heating up and LENR – Cold Fusion is certainly among the handful of potential candidates.

Airbus Unveils E-Fan Electric Plane

Airbus, fresh off revealing an LENR patent only a few months ago, now reveals a totally electric airplane powered by batteries. One can only imagine this technology being combined with an LENR generator to create impossibly long flight ranges without the need for fuel capacity restraints.  As an added bonus, it has a low carbon footprint and is very quiet.
