Socioeconomical Consequences of the LENR Technology - Group Analysis and Discussion

  • My assessment is that the savings/profit incentive will be the key drivers....
    Prime markets for accelerated conversion are:

    • early adoption of residential heating and electricity
    • Transportation (autos, trucks, rail, ocean shipping)
    • Energy intensive manufacturing (All metals, basic chemicals [H2SO4, Cl, NaOH, HCl], cement, fertilizer, plastics.....)
    • Petro-energy futures crashing, along with total market disruption to the new equilibrium.

    Longer term trends

    • Grid dependency decreasing exponentially over 5 -10 years.
    • Petro-energy supply chain dependency decreasing
    • Vertical growth of petrochemical sources....up to and potentially past VCM production.
    • Refitting all residences and business points with the new energy paradigm.
    • Restructuring of infrastructure to take advantage of low cost energy (public lighting, Water, Wastewater)
    • Significant growth of engineering, manufacturing and construction areas to accommodate all the above.
    • Percent of labor in material cost increasing.

    Sectors Less effected

    • Health care
    • Food production (except for fertilization and logistics)
    • Entertainment
    • Technology
    • Mining?
    • Low energy dependent manufacturing
  • Socioeconomical consequences of the LENR- technology?

    That will be an easy question to answer, and I guarantee this answer is correct.

    The consequences: absolutely none.

    There is a very nice French article about "Digotal Revolution", supporting the idea that Digotal is not the important fact, like electricity is not the secret of Telsla or Uber.

    I imagine there is similar English article... if Someone can find one, I hope there is many people reminding us that technology ion a revolution is just the support medium, not the real revolution. Revolution is breaking the old rules.…-disruptions-3c10f3299002


    LENR will , like electricity, oil, digital, 3D printers, graphene, allow new products, new way to serve the user, new organizations...
    It is there that most of the added value will came.

    Maybe it explains what Gaël Giraud says when he says energy impact growth to 60% and not 10% as most says. Impact of a technology revolution is mostly not technical.

    This article can feed the debate:

    Why Does Culture Sometimes Evolve via Sudden Bursts of Innovation? A New Model

    This article is trying to explain the reality, but for us what is important is that the usual pattern is burst of incremental improvements which starts from a lightning-bolt idea.

    e can safely bet that LENR is one of such "lightning-bolt" idea, and that an incredible amount of incremental improvement of all we know today will exploit that.
    LENR is a great improvement, but as far as we know it is very accessible, unlike many technology, and so many "innovators" from each domain will be able to exploit it in their tiny domain.

    In your "spoiler", you state : "Therefore the energy which is set free by 1 g should be Etotal = 7.3x1021 * 4 *3 * 106 * 1.6*10-19 +2.7 x 1021 * 2 * 3 * 106 * 1.6 * 10-19 = 1.56 x1010 Joule"

    However, the Lugano report shows that 1/2 g of Ni produces 1500 KWh during 32 days and it seems all the Ni was transmuted into Ni62 after this period.

    Hence, 1g of Ni produces 3000 KWh in 32 days, which is 34 MWh in a year.34 MWh = 12 10^10 Joules

    How do you explain this discrepancy between the theoretical value you computed of 1.56 10^10 Joules and this value of 12 10^10 Joules which should be smaller ?
