Mats Lewan announce a Symposium in Sweden on June 21, 2016, in the city of Stockholm.
The Symposium will focus on the disruptive consequences of a new energy source that may literally change the world, promising Planet Earth clean water, zero-emission vehicles with unlimited mileage, a solution to the climate crisis and much more.
I’m particularly proud to announce a few of the renowned speakers who together with me believe that it’s high time to draw global attention to this subject.
As a science and technology journalist I started to follow this field many years ago, intensifying my coverage in 2011 when an important breakthrough was claimed by the Italian inventor Andrea Rossi.
What has frustrated me intensely since then has been the stubborn resistance from the scientific community and from leading scientific journals and other media even to look at the massive evidence for the physical phenomenon behind the technology, often called LENR or cold fusion, simply because it’s considered to be ‘impossible’ and that it violates known laws of nuclear physics.
I have also been amazed at the openly aggressive criticism being expressed by many opponents, against anyone arguing for the importance and for the validity of this field.
After all, it’s a research field that requires minimal resources yet offers a possible solution for a series of fundamental global problems, furthermore potentially opening completely new horizons in science and technology. Why on Earth shouldn’t we give it a chance?
Huw Price, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Cambridge, has called the stigma suffered by cold fusion a reputation trap. Meanwhile it has been scientifically proven that elite scientists really can hold back scientific progress. Or, as Nobel Laureate Max Planck put it: A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.
Now, finally, the time has come to challenge the resistance and to bring this discussion to a broader audience than those hundreds or, in the last few years, ten thousand people around the world, who have insisted in maintaining an interest in the advances of the field.
The reason is that several attempts at developing a commercially viable technology based on the phenomenon are showing significant progress.
Today, you will be able to pre-register for the symposium without fees. Those who pre-register will receive a one-week opportunity to get a 10-percent discount on the attendance fee when full registration opens in March 2016 (pre-register here).
You can follow current news coverage on progress in this field on the website E-Cat World, which is one of the partners of the symposium. Two more partners that I’m proud to present are the future-focused Swedish research and management consulting firm Kairos Future, and the London based global non-profit Network Society Research Ltd.
The opportunity for interesting talks, discussions and meetings that New Energy World Symposium can bring is genuinely exciting, and I look forward to seeing you among the attendees—the first ever to prepare for the radical changes that energy disruption will bring.

There are usual suspects, and new names.
- Mats Lewan
- Jed Rothwell
- Prof. Brian Josephson (for those who forgot, Nobel awards his work in SC devices)
- Jean-François Geneste (for those who forgot: Vice-President Chief scientist, Airbus Group)
- Prof. Harry Frank : Former head of R&D for the multinational robotics, power and automation corporation ABB and member of the Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences (KVA) and of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA). During his long career at ABB, Frank was also running business development with focus on energy related technology, and received several rewards for his work in this field. Harry Frank has been a professor in innovation management within energy at Mälardalen University College."
