-solidly at a little over COP2. Needs 6X's to compete in the thermal market. Get up to 30Xs input, and bring in cars and everything else in between (planes/locomotives).
So prove it. Get an independent test that Brillouin has excess energy Eout=2*Ein or better. You will have entrepreneurs up the wazoo offering abundant and generous funding.
This business about competing in markets, planes and locomotives troubles me. I am not saying Brillouin is a scam but the claim that "we can't do anything meaningful until we can power a, b or c" is a hallmark of scammers. Why? Because it is so obviously false that saying it only appeals to dummies. Everyone else realizes it's just dumb. Appealing to lowest common denominators is the hallmark of the Nigerian type scam.
