On twitter the_new_fire have cited patents applications, by Dennis Letts for Industrial Heat (in fact IH IP Holding Limited)
The first I've read is a classic plating patent application, to plate with controlled coarseness, citing Pd hydride, Lithium, Lanthanum , magnetic field... and e method to controal coarseness with a microscope and a computer...
This is typically the kind of patent that would be key if LENR get industrial... not patenting the LENR reaction, but a practical improvement method...
Like patenting an improved electronic ignition coil for gasoline car.
the second is a LENR patent application
It propose that LENR excess heat happens when volatge of good value is applied between a container and an Pd electrode, filled with deuterieum.
Even more interesting a speculation about energy needed, matching DeBroglie wavelength matching lattice dimension... 
 In some experiments, an exothermic reaction was observed experimentally when the deuterons were accelerated with 1,237 volts and on a separate occasion with 176 volts. The experimental conditions at that time were such that Debroglie wavelengths of 2.014 Angstroms and 0.74 Angstroms were produced as the deuterons accelerated toward the reactor wall and into the palladium. This suggests that there may be a connection between the deuterium ion's Debroglie wavelength and one or more physical lattice dimensions where the ions may be trapped. To accelerate the deuterons to achieve a Debroglie wavelength that corresponds to the dimensions of the physical lattice the ions may be trapped in, the voltage Vo applied between the metal container 102 and the electrode 104 can be determined using Eq. (1).
This seems not so hard to replicate for some industry labs?
