A 2009 unclassified Defense Analysis Report gives a technology forecast stating: "Worldwide Research on Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions Increasing and Gaining Acceptance."
The report goes on to say:
"DIA asseses with high confidence that if LENR can produce nuclear-origin enery at room temperatures, this disruptive technology could revolutionize energy production and storage.."
"Scientists worldwide have been reporting anomalous heat production, as well as evidence of nuclear particles and transmutation."
Y. Iwamura at Japan's Mitsubishi Heavy Industries first detected transmutation of elements when permeating Deuterium through Palladium metal in 2002.
Researchers led by Y.Arata at Osaka University in Japan and a team led by V. Violante at ENEA in iTALY (the Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and the Environment - the equivalent to the U.S. Department of Energy) also made transmutation claims.
Additional indications of transmutation have been reported in China, Russia, France, Ukraine and the United States.
Researchers in Japan, Italy, Israel, and the United States have all reported detecting evidence of nuclear particle emissions.
Chinese researchers described LENR experiments in 1991 that generated so much heat that they caused an explosion that was not believed to be chemical in origin.
Under a section called "Outlook and Implications" the report says:
"If nuclear reactions in LENR experiments are real and controllable, DIA assesses that whoever produces the first commercialized LENR power source could revolutionize energy production and storage for the future."
Being a DIA report, it is alarmingly focused on the military application of LENR technology. It goes on to say "Because nuclear fusion releases 10 million times more energy per unit mass than does liquid transportation fuel, the military potential of such high-energy-density power sources is enormous. And since the U.S. military is the largest user of liquid fuel for transportation, LENR power sources could produce the greatest transformation of the battlefield for U.S. forces since the transition from horsepower to gasoline power.
Andrea Rossi's eCat
Andrea Rossi's "eCat" (Energy Catalyzer) technology is one such technology that is getting ready to go into production later this year with the inaugural 1MW plant due to open in the US in late October. The site of this fusion plant is still a closely guarded secret.
Rossi's e-Cat technology uses tiny amounts of powdered treated Nickel pressurized with hydrogen gas. The results so far have been spectacular - the ecat has been measured producing as much as 33 times more output power than input while also being able to self sustain without any input power for long periods of time.
Commercial eCat production is scheduled to begin in November 2011 with ambitious plans to introduce Nickel Hydrogen Fusion as a new primary energy source to challenge traditional fossil fuels. The only real competititor in the form of nuclear power has been shown to be too dangerous after the recent events in Fukoshima with Recent reports confirming that the land around Fukoshima will be rendered uninhabitable for at least the next 20 years.
Despite the revolutionary nature of Rossi's eCat technology the mainstream media are still maintaining a wall of silence which has been in effect since the first successful ecat demonstration back in January 2011.
Recently however, an obvious and rather predictably one-sided "article" on the eCat emerged in mainstream journal Physorg. Rather than a serious attempt to get the facts the reporter focussed on the the sole issue of how the New Energy Times viewed the situation. The article appears manufactured rather than "researched".
Recently and rather disappointingly the debate on the eCat technology has also been subverted away from the technology and onto the very public difference of opinion between journalist Steven B Krivit and Andrea Rossi.
