LENR vs Solar/Wind, and emerging Green Technologies.

  • Seems you could do this with cars going down the road 24-7

    hydro plates to generators..

    The idea of harvesting energy from transportation has been researched for a good while, here’s a general write up:

    and here you can find a Portuguese PhD thesis funded by the Portuguese Science and Technology authority about kinetic energy harvesting for electricity production from traffic.

    I certainly Hope to see LENR helping humans to blossom, and I'm here to help it happen.

  • I think about the man hole covers that pop down ,rock from one side to the other in front of 7-11 all day/night long.

    The pipes are in place ect.

    lots of easy stuff like this will likely never be tested. they will just write it up and say what they will.

    just a rocker box pump system

    I'm skeptical about that forcing of the electron into the proton to make a neutron. That would require about one and half of an electron's mass of energy. Seems excessive.

    Parkhomov & Belousova demonstrated that it was possible to do this by using the billions of low-energy neutrinos that appear transiently from the Boltzmanian collision of atoms and molecules.

  • This way have been tested in France several decades ago, however lobbyists from other energy solutions have succeeded in killing off this competing solution on the pretext of corrosion .

    there are no technical solutions regardless of the inherently bad domain. What makes the difference is the team ability to promote their solution, the Lenr field is well aware of that.

    sam12 we Chileans also have a beach friendly version of wave energy, patented, and with a fancy Mapuche name.

  • The anomalous diffusion of gallium 69 and 71 (and 72, of course) atoms in aluminum at room temperature is equivalent to the anomalous diffusion of hydrogen in our palladium alloys. It is a striking demonstration of the existence of breathers and freezers in some quasicrystals.




    It's a very simple experiment to perform:



    • take an aluminum sheet. At one end, connect an ohmmeter with two clamps.
    • Go to your medicine cabinet. Break the thermometer into a ceramic bowl.
    • At the other end of the sheet, with a pipette, put a drop of gallium on the aluminum.
    • The drop wets the metal, then it is absorbed as if by magic.
    • Look at the rapid increase in resistance on the other side. Pretty fast solid-phase diffusion, right?
    • Then post the pictures on the forum.
    • Then, the moisture of the air react promptly with the new alloy, producing hydrogen, but you can also see the diffusion of diafluid gallium under dry air.

  • This story of gallium and aluminum is interesting from a theoretical point of view, but to manufacture hydrogen, there is no need to use expensive gallium: when my cylinder of pressurized hydrogen is empty, I make my hydrogen to test our fusion diodes with pieces of aluminum and liquid to unclog the toilets and it works very well.

  • This "Titalium" padlock is probably made of a new duralumin type alloy, but even harder. With pure aluminum the reaction is even faster, especially if you put a little mercury in the gallium (I guess the mercury dissolves the alumina)


    I propose to absolutely ban gallium thermometers in the medicine cabinets of aluminum minesweepers, and also on board the M113.

  • US federal, and state government bureaucracies are a major obstacle to building renewable energy projects:

    You can shorten it to "bureaucracies are a major obstacle" and it applies to every single aspect of life on good ole Gaia.

  • You can shorten it to "bureaucracies are a major obstacle" and it applies to every single aspect of life on good ole Gaia.

    But you should also note that governments and their bureaucracies invented, paid for, subsidized or perfected just about every major technology from 1800 on, such as canals, railroads, telegraphs, steamships, computers, highways, airplanes, air traffic controls, rockets, weather prediction, the GPS, computers, semiconductors, the internet, wind turbines and solar cells, and COVID vaccines. And cold fusion. Just about every researcher and every dollar of research money in cold fusion came from the British, U.S. and Japanese governments. No one knows how to run a government without a bureaucracy. Some bureaucracies such as DARPA are more flexible than others, but they are all bureaucratic. It is a double edged sword.

  • CERN preps for energy shortages this winter

    As Russia puts pressure on European gas supplies, CERN, Europe's particle-physics laboratory, is making plans to shut down some accelerators during periods of peak energy demand. The lab consumes close to 200 megawatts of power at peak operation and is among France’s largest consumers of electricity. CERN is accustomed to managing its huge energy needs: it already shuts down accelerators over the power-hungry Christmas period. “Our concern is really grid stability, because we do all we can to prevent a blackout in our region,” said CERN’s energy coordinator Serge Claudet.

    The Sustainable Energy Council and the U.S. Department of Energy announce the 2nd Hydrogen Americas Summit taking place on 10 – 11 October 2022.


    The Summit convenes Government representatives, hydrogen and energy stakeholders, service providers and end-users to identify opportunities and get insights into the latest projects and policy developments that will be crucial to drive the Region’s industry forward. View the Program!


    Over 13 countries in the Americas have announced Hydrogen Strategies, and the recent signing of the U.S. Bipartisan Infrastructure Law including $8bn funding for the development of Regional Clean Hydrogen Hubs has further cemented the key role that hydrogen will play in the region’s energy transition.


    With both public and private investments flooding into the hydrogen market, it’s a crucial time to establish regional cross-sector collaboration and business partnerships enabling a wide range of industries across the continent to decarbonize and transition into net-zero energy systems.

    You might find this short report on raw material recycling for the EV battery supply chain interesting. They suggest that the main source of recycled battery materials up to 2030 will not be 'end of life' vehicle batteries, but the scrap bins of the battery gigafactories.

    Scrap from gigafactories will be the primary source of recyclable battery material for the next decade, according to Benchmark’s Recycling Report.

    End-of-life batteries are not expected to become a major source of material until the 2030s as electric vehicles sold now won’t be scrapped for another ten years or so, according to Benchmark.

    “Process scrap is huge both as a waste management opportunity and as a cost opportunity,” Sarah Colbourn, an analyst at Benchmark, said.

    Recycling of raw materials will be vital to meet the growing demand for batteries as sales of electric vehicles accelerate this decade. Demand for lithium ion batteries is set to grow six-fold by 2032, according to Benchmark.

    However, in the near-term recyclers are likely to use scrap material from the ever increasing number of gigafactories coming online rather than used electric vehicle batteries. Benchmark forecasts this scrap will account for 78% of the pool of recyclable materials in 2025.

  • Adden Energy achieves breakthrough in solid-state battery development - electrive.com


    The start-up Adden Energy, founded by scientists at Harvard University, is developing a new type of solid-state battery for electric vehicles and has now announced that it has received a technology licence and closed a seed funding round of 5.15 million US dollars.


    According to Adden Energy, the self-developed lithium metal battery achieves a charging time of only three minutes in the laboratory and a service life of more than 10,000 cycles. The prototype also has a high energy density and material stability “that overcomes the safety problems of some other lithium batteries”. The results have been published in Nature and other journals.


    In other news, the startup announces it has received an exclusive technology licence from Harvard University’s Office of Technology Development (OTD) to scale solid-state battery technology. In addition, a good US$5 million has come in via a seed funding round.

    The round was led by Primavera Capital Group. Rhapsody Venture Partners and MassVentures also participated. The licence and venture funding will enable the startup to scale up the lab prototype to commercial use of a solid-state lithium metal battery, according to a statement.


    Thus, the startup plans to first scale the battery to a palm-sized pouch cell and then turn it into a full-fledged vehicle battery in the next three to five years. “If you want to electrify vehicles, a solid-state battery is the way to go,” says Xin Li, associate professor of materials science at Harvard’s John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS). “We set out to commercialize this technology because we do see our technology as unique compared to other solid-state batteries. We have achieved in the lab 5,000 to 10,000 charge cycles in a battery’s lifetime, compared with 2,000 to 3,000 charging cycles for even the best in class now, and we don’t see any fundamental limit to scaling up our battery technology. That could be a game changer.”

  • According to Adden Energy, the self-developed lithium metal battery achieves a charging time of only three minutes in the laboratory and a service life of more than 10,000 cycles.

    That is impressive. The specifications are more like those of a supercapacitor than a conventional battery.


    Something like this would be useful for small-scale cold fusion mechanical generators. You don't want them to run all the time (continuously). They would wear out quickly. With this battery, the generator would run for a while, charge up the battery, and then go into standby mode. Especially at night it might not run for hours.


    Mechanical engines such as refrigerator compressors and furnace circulation fans can last for years. Around 15 years, typically. But they do not run continuously. The duty cycle is low.


    Running all the time would not be a problem with a thermoelectric heat engine instead of a mechanical generator. It would not be a problem with a LEC.
