The LENRG ecosystem developed by LENR-Cities is presented in the Swiss magazine "Energy.now" (of Swiss Engineering group).
here is a google translation !
An article on the community of innovation ecosystems appeared in the last Energy.Now magazine! , A publication of SwissEngineering, taking as example LENRG ecosystem, developed by LENR-Cities SA in order to accelerate the industrialization of LENR technologies such as nuclear waste, transmutation, superconductivity, production of hydrogen and the direct production of électricité.
ENERGY.NOW! is published annually on energy policy, infrastructure and technological innovations of Swiss industry and provides detailed information on the technological aspect, economic and sustainable energy policy and on a prospective respectful of the environment.

The community of innovation ecosystems
The LENR technology, which can produce large amounts of heat continuously by not releasing any CO2 nor radioactive waste, is in vogue right now. An international community of researchers, grouped under the umbrella of the Neuchâtel company LENR-Cities, is active in this new research field LENR covering technologies such as the treatment of nuclear waste, transmutation, superconductivity, production of hydrogen and the direct production of electricity. This offers infinite opportunities.

After fission and nuclear fusion, here came the low energy nuclear reaction, ie: [lexicon]Low Energy Nuclear Reactions[/lexicon] (LENR). This is based reaction atomic transmutations which were originally discovered in 1989 by scientific Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons. "Although this area was originally and mistakenly called" Cold Fusion ", this area covers the fields of experimentation and application well beyond cold fusion," notes the website Lenr-cars.com. LENR ANR is also called "Fleischmann / Pons Effect, Anomalous Heat Effect" or abnormal excess heat effect, "Quantum Fusion, CEF, slow or Controlled Electron Capture" controlled electron capture.
The LENR experiments have demonstrated energy releases well above any form of known chemical reactions and energy densities up to 20 million times greater than the combustion reactions used in our daily lives. For example, the LENR technology produces significant quantities of continuously heat in small reactors for several months consuming only very small amounts of fuel and without producing any greenhouse gas such as CO2, no radioactive waste or any type of dangerous radiation. This is actually an extremely clean and safe means of energy production.
"The LENR opens the door to the twenty-first century industry"
Recent developments in the LENR technology have achieved much greater powers than the few Watt of the original experiments in 1989 that used palladium and deuterium in an electrolytic cell. Modern reactions using a hydrogen gas or combination stored as hydride and nanostructured nickel. Recent generators can achieve power gains close to commercial applications for energy production. "Few scientists are aware of the work in what appears to be a new scientific field. LENR opens the door to the twenty-first century industry, "said Didier Pelluet, aeronautical engineer and cofounder of LENR-Cities in Neuchâtel.
For him, this technology is outside the field of science and organized at the intersection of several scientific areas: quantum physics, condensed matter physics, especially nanoscience. "The more an area is disruptive (note: that bursts), the less active scientists in this field and these are the frontiers of science recognized".
The "breakthrough innovation"
Based on this finding, Didier Pelluet and his colleague Michel Vandenberghe, analyzed the evolution of LENR field of research, not from the scientific point of view, but considering signing a "breakthrough innovation" (concept of change) , seeking its way onto more than two decades. "We have identified the key scientists worldwide stature and have convinced to cooperate in a project whose heart activity is to create a market to accelerate the development and industrialization of LENR technologies," he says. Once contacted researchers LENR-Cities has built and consolidated a scientific team also strongly connected to the world community: "If the theoretical key LENR is fully revealed, it would be by them and if that was not the case Our team would naturally positioned to meet the demand that explode after this revelation. "
Three key projects
Thus, in January-Cities LENR organizes its first big event in Oxford by demonstrating that the scope of this technology was far beyond energy and its brokerage offering in the market development to support science, industry and investors to be part of an ecosystem, ecosystems are at the heart of new markets and new industries (by 2018, 30% of industries will be "Amazoned," an IDC and Gartner forecast). Following this meeting, the ecosystem developed by LENRG LENR-Cities is committed to designing three projects with key players in the scientific landscape, technological and European industrialists.
- The first project for the processing of nuclear waste. This is transmutation of radioactive isotopes for the decontamination of radioactive waste. NDA which includes 11 theoretical and experimental groups is signed, centered on the UK which takes to heart the final disposal of nuclear waste, as well as Japan (LENR Launch of Impact program).
- The second addresses the LENR certification. As announced at the LENR-Cities event in Milan in April and then in Neuchâtel end of June, Airbus Group that supports LENR-Cities since the beginning, this is both an experimental approach to show what happens actually, and to allow theoretical field of engineering and product development. A heat engine is made available by Airbus.
- The third provides new batteries and hydrogenated fuels. There are technologies that will change the game, for example, in all the transportation systems or systems requiring autonomy.
"Year 1 of a new industrial era"
According to Didier Pelluet, recent developments indicate that LENR 2015 could be the year 1 of a new industrial era. "In a few years, the first users, companies and individuals, may be autonomous and independent energy and society as a whole will then develop a new economy combining growth and sustainability," he says. According to him, "LENR will be the catalyst for a transformation of the industry in the service of each customer, clean and adapted to each context, the opportunity to turn all of life each one." So what will be the challenge? "Nothing less than to create a new economy.
The objective is not only to industrialise the LENR technologies but to allow any industry to innovate by integrating LENR in its own products and technologies. We need to innovate in order to allow a massive and viral LENR transition to industry and beyond energy, foster innovation and growth in all industries. "
Ecosystem players LENRG
The LENR-Cities offer is doubly interesting because it reduces the risk to innovate and increases the return value for each of the players in the ecosystem LENRG:
- SMEs thus have the opportunity to innovate faster and at a lower cost
- Startups discover better aligned with market innovations
- Large companies have the opportunity to develop their own ecosystems
- Innovators and scientists can acquire funding and a fair return on the overall value produced
LENRG: Read Energy
Based in Neuchâtel, LENR-Cities AG aims to create a global center of excellence in developing high value-added production facilities of a new industry in the energy sector and its applications. The company also aims to develop the local economy for the production of equipment required for the energy transition project in Switzerland. She also wants to enhance the skills and Swiss culture - scientific, technological and industrial - French-speaking Switzerland in the fields of nano and micro technologies, Green Manufacturing, Robotics and production.
LENR-Cities is involved as a source of innovation and value creation in all industries. The company also has a Swiss brand: LENRG, the "G" to read the energy that means the ecosystem it develops.
