As posted in the News Thread, the European Comission (apparently since march 2019), has a Funding and Tenders opportunities program that is seeking for proposals for cutting-edge high-risk / high-reward research and innovation projects that aim to demonstrate a new technological paradigm, among of which the following types of technologies are included:
c. Breakthrough zero-emissions energy generation for full decarbonization. Clean and sustainable energy is one of the major challenges of our time. This sub-topic aims at the multidisciplinary exploration of new directions (starting from TRL 1-3) for power generation that is clean, compact and low-cost, aimed at stand-alone, mobile or portable uses in specific application contexts, for instance, in the transport sector (road, air, sea and either for motive or auxiliary needs), for portable uses, in remote places or in emergency situations. Breakthrough concepts and techniques for energy generation have to be explored for generating heat and/or electricity efficiently with zero emissions and with a minimal use of rare or toxic materials. Research areas could include, for example, long duration high heat sources from hydrogen-metal systems (e.g., using nickel), energy generation in plasma and cavitation systems. These or any other concepts with similar compact, high energy density and low-cost energy generation capabilities should be harnessed to make them usable for specific application contexts. Clear and ambitious performance targets and milestones to achieve them shall be provided.
If that is not LENR by other name, I don't know what it is.
Alan Smith , perhaps you were aware of this (with your Ecalox project), perhaps is old news, but I have to thanks Mats Lewan for bringing this up in ECW.
