ICCF-23 Conference

The 23rd International Conference on Cold Fusion (ICCF-23) will be held sometime after October 2021 in Fujian, China. The dates, location and other aspects of the conference are still undecided because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The conference will probably be virtual.

The conference organizers are:

Innovation Laboratory for Sciences and Technologies of Energy Materials of Fujian Province (IKKEM), China

State Key Laboratory of Physical Chemistry of Solid Surfaces, Xiamen University

The Abstract submission deadline is April 10, 2021. The website is here:

Statement of Industrial Heat Regarding LENR Industry Developments

The following statement has been released from Industrial Heat for Infinite Energy Magazine today, March 10, 2016.  —Marianne Macy

Industrial Heat’s objective is to make clean, safe and affordable energy available everywhere, and in doing this we want to build a company that demonstrates respect for all. LENR is a key focus of Industrial Heat and we believe multiple technologies in this sector warrant further investigation and development.

Industrial Heat has licensed, acquired or invested in several LENR technologies from around the world. We have developed a group of LENR thought leaders, and we have built a world-class engineering team. We are pleased with the technologies we have assembled and with the group of scientists and engineers working on them. Presently, the Industrial Heat team is in the midst of assessing and prioritizing the technologies in our portfolio.

Our operating philosophy is to foster scientific and engineering rigor in the development of LENR. We will thoroughly assess data derived from sound experiments which we design, control and monitor.

Embracing failure as well as success is important, because we learn from both. Unfortunately, there is a long and continuing pattern of premature proclamations in the LENR sector.

Because of this, we encourage open-minded skepticism. We believe society suffers when technological advances and innovative experimentation are stifled; likewise, society and the industry suffer when results are promoted and claims are made without rigorous verification and precise measurement.

We value credibility through sound LENR research. That’s why any claims made about technologies in our portfolio should only be relied upon if affirmed by Industrial Heat and backed by reputable third parties who have verified our results in repeated experiments.

Our portfolio of work has never been stronger and we remain excited about the potential we see. This optimism is grounded in more than just hope, yet a great deal of work remains. The energy challenges of today must be met with viable, clean, safe and affordable solutions.

Edmund Storms announces new results with palladium

Dr. Edmund Storms has recently published five reports describing recent replications of the palladium deuterium cold fusion experiments. These are available at his website http://lenrexplained.com/

Description of website:

The Explanation of Low Energy Nuclear Reaction: An Examination of the Relationship between Observation and Explanation by Dr. Edmund Storms attempts to bridge the gap between what is thought to be true and possible by conventional scientists and what is claimed by people advocating the reality of the cold fusion phenomenon. In addition, a new explanation is proposed that is consistent with accepted natural law and with all behavior attributed to cold fusion.

The five reports are summarized here: http://lenrexplained.com/tag/progress-report/

The individual reports are available in Acrobat format:

Study of PdD as a host for LENR

Calibration of the Seebeck calorimeter

Insights obtained during the initial study

Effect of important variables

Behavior of pure PdD This report describes excess heat up to 360 mW correlated with radiation.

Additional behavior of pure PdD

 

YouTube video: Brief Introduction to Cold Fusion

We have published a 6-minute video, A Brief Introduction to Cold Fusion. This video explains why we know that cold fusion is a real effect, why it is not yet a practical source of energy, and why it will  have many advantages if it can be made practical. The script for this video along with Explanatory Notes and Additional Resources is here.
