They say that competition is a healthy thing. In the field of alternative and exotic energy it's always been somewhat disappointing and more about whether there was anything to the claim itself, let alone having the luxury of such a thing as competition.
Sometimes a company will spring from nowhere, make a radical claim about a new technology and simply not be heard from again. Not anymore. Not where LENR is concerned.
Even the most hardened sceptic who has been witnessing the events in the world of LENR (Low Energy Nuclear Reactions) recently could not have failed to notice that things are getting serious. It is no longer reasonable to question whether or not excess heat is produced - if you have half a braincell, then you already know it simply is.The debate now centers on how much excess energy, and how quickly can it be commercialized.
We now find ourselves in the fortunate position of not just one potentially commercially viable solution, but several. Andrea Rossi's Leonardo Corporation, Defkalion Green Technologies Nichenergy, LENUCO, Celani's Cold Fusion Energy Inc and now, the recently emerged Brillouin Energy are all charging forward.
There are many differences in the methods these companies are using to extract heat but all of them seem to have at least cracked one small part of the code that is LENR.
But why now? Why was there a 2 decade long cold fusion drought and then suddenly, almost overnight, we have 6 major players competeing for the prize? Why also have more and more reputable big name players been allowing themselves to be associated with "fringe" science? Does this not seem odd?
Could it be that we have now reached a natural conclusion to our energy problems? Could it be that the controllers have decided it's time to "let" LENR come of age? And if you're sitting there thinking that the multi-trillion dollar energy industry is free from control and that "things just happen" for no reason then you need to think again.
