Changes in perceptions of the status of LENR are necessary in order for its benefits to be realized. Many favorable developments that are not widely known have taken place since the 1989 rejection. The phenomenon has continued to be researched by many investigators around the world, resulting in a large and growing body of evidence for its reality. It now seems clear that LENR is a real phenomenon, and its benefits may yet be realized.
LENRGY seeks to communicate the changing landscape of LENR in several ways. Presentations are given to researchers and potential sponsors where possible. For example, Dr. Grimshaw was requested to provide an overview of LENR to Exelon, a major US electric utility company. The methods of investigation, current researchers, active laboratories, and current status of LENR were covered in the presentation. At a colloquium of LENR researchers at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Dr. Grimshaw gave a presentation on the importance of policy analysis in achieving changes in public policy toward support of LENR research. The case was made for pursuing policy changes using evidence-based policymaking arguments for LENR support.
Dr. Grimshaw continues to undertake outreach activities for LENR by preparing papers and giving presentations at conferences. At the most recent International Conference on Cold Fusion (ICCF) in 2016, for example, Dr. Grimshaw presented a paper jointly with David Nagel, PhD, of The George Washington University. The subject was the opportunities – and obligations – of US government agencies to provide financial support for LENR research. In the preceding ICCF conference in Italy, Dr. Grimshaw gave a presentation on integrated policymaking for realizing the benefits and mitigating the impacts of LENR.
LENRGY continues to look for outreach opportunities to communicate the changing landscape of LENR and secure support for realizing its immense potential benefits.
