European Commision Funding and Tenders Opportunities for Breacktrough Zero Emissions Energy production Includes LENR (sort of)

  • 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.

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

  • Increased efficiency in heat production would be a good work around the terminology. I wonder if Francesco CELANI has submitted some proposal already, he has been using the Anomalous Heat terminology for a good while.

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

  • If he has, perhaps other teams have also, they are very aware of each other’s in Italy due to that agreement in which they all participate signed in 2018 (La nuova Energia)

  • If an application is made I don't see why we can't use 'low energy nuclear reactor' simply as the most accurate way of describing what would be intended. Here is a hypothetical outline (abstract);

    This project involves the construction of low-energy nuclear reactors using Ni-Pd - hydrogen/deuterium (H/D) fusion systems. These are analogous to low energy light bulbs which replaced tungsten filament bulbs with respect to small domestic reactors using 300W electrical input and generating up to 10X power output ie 3kW heat. Recent research has demonstrated that nuclear fusion can be catalysed in H/D absorbed by Ni-Pd mesh within a pressurized stainless steel reactor vessel when stimulated by infra-red radiation. Other experimental evidence has shown that such fusion reactions are dependent on the synthesis of dense H/D clusters within or close to the surface of the Ni-Pd lattice, ultra dense (UD) forms of D or H synthesized by categories of hydrogenation or dehydrogenation catalysts eg Pt/Ir/Rh or KFeO2/ZrO2. Once synthesized UDH/D has been shown to spontaneously emit mesons, kaons which progressively decay via pions to muons which eventually decay to electrons, positrons and neutrinos/antineutrinos. Each stage of this reaction cascade is exothermic releasing the order of 100 MeV. Furthermore, high levels of negative muon densities have been measured from UDH in response to infra red laser stimulation. Such negatively charged muons have been known since the 1950's to catalyse fusion between H or D by forming muon-coupled molecules which undergo fusion due to tunneling of the Coulomb barrier caused by the 200X electron mass of the muon. Each muon is capable of catalysing the fusion of many H or D nuclei, releasing the order of several MeV at each stage of the fusion reactions. Inclusion of the appropriate UDH/D catalysts within the void of the stainless steel reactor in close apposition to the infra red source in the form of pellets is effective in prolonging excess 3 KW heat release over several weeks. Scaling up such reactors to MW power levels for generating electricity is also envisaged, higher output reactors driving steam turbines.

  • Don't you think LENR has gained a certain degree of credibility now considering Team Google's efforts etc? Better to face the controversy head on now rather than beat about the bush with 'anomalous heat effects' with which referees/experts advising the EU grant board are bound to smell a rat!:)

  • Do they want to fund it as long as it dares not speak its name?


    Well you could also make the point explicit by underlying the fact that cold fusion

    overcomes the Coulomb barrier

    which contravenes the edicts of a generation of academic physicists


    With applying for ANY grants there is a degree of politeness/politics/ savvy

    that is beneficial


    with free money we need to kowtow to sociological mores..

  • Most of the most famous European guys involved in Lenr field have "gathered" themselves to present a common project.

    Unfortunately, their respective ego both respective ambitions make that the cake will be too small to nourish the greed of all this assembly.

  • Good news about the delay- but sadly we are not applying, since (due to Brexit fears) we have not found another EU partner to apply with.

    that’s really sad to know Alan Smith , a very good window of opportunity gone to waste due to a completely unrelated political shenanigan. 😭

    that’s even sadder to learn Cydonia , from your comment I conclude that those who were aware and In position to take advantage of this favorable opportunity were not smart enough to focus in the important aspects and preferred to pursue their own individual benefit instead of being able to present a common United proposal to solve the major problems and then proceed with their own agendas.
