Nissan, worlds third largest car manufacturer, is working on an Lugano/Parkhomo based LENR experiment. They will present their results at the Japan Cold Fusion Meeting taking place from 19th to 20th of March 2017.
Here their presentation abstract:
Expectations on the new heat-generation-reaction between metal and hydrogen

The development of technologies friendly to the global environment is a major theme in the automotive industry today. Especially, to reduce CO2 emission and to achieve cleaner exhaust emissions, Electrical Vehicle, EV, has received a lot of attention in recent years. The sales numbers of 100%-EV was around 6 times higher for the past 5 years. 100%-EV means that it does not have any other power source except motors. Nissan launched it, named LEAF, in 2010 and the total number of sales exceeded 250,000. But some customers complains the mileage per 1 charge, around 200km. In particular, the mileage in winter season could decrease by half due to using of heater, this should be solved.
In 2010, A. Rossi reported E-cat, Energy Catalyzer. This equipment can generate heat energy from Ni and H2 reaction and the energy is larger than input one. This experiment was replicated by A Parkhomov but the reaction mechanism has NOT been clarified [1-2]. If we can use this heat energy as a heater application into EV, the problem of short mileage caused by using heater will be solved, the EV with this equipment will be a candidate for customers who have a sense of dissatisfaction that they should charge very often.
In this report we will report 2 things. The first one is the experimental results regarding to reproducing Parkhomov’s experiment with some disclosing experimental conditions using Differential Scanning Calorimetry (STA-PT1600, Linseis Inc.). This DSC can measure generated heat within a tolerance of 2%. The second one is our expectation on this reaction for automotive potential.
