Brillouin reports independent validation of their LENR HHT™ reactor core system

Brillouin Energy Corp., developer of a technology capable of producing commercially useful amounts of heat based on controlled low energy nuclear reactions (LENR), announced that its Hydrogen Hot Tube™ (HHT™) boiler system reactor core modules were the subject of a recently completed technical validation report.

"I was able to confirm, with a high degree of confidence, excess energy output above chemical and likely due to a nuclear reaction."

[LENR is the more common term for what used to be called "cold fusion." "Low energy" doesn't refer to the output, but the input required to get a reaction going.]

Preface by Sterling D. Allan
Pure Energy Systems News

Tree days ago, Brillouin published the Press Release below.

A small-scale replication has been made of their technology, but they do not publish the report. They will send it to qualified persons under NDA. 

The replication and validation doesn't fit the classic definition of "independent, third-party." This is a document prepared by a connected party with an economic interest in the success of the Brillouin product. (Ref.)

BuildItNow writes at E-CatWorld:

I called Robert Godes and discussed the meaning of "Lab-scale excess heat" stated in the "Independent Technical Validation Report."
Robert told that the unit tested was a very small (tiny) prototyping model used to rapidly refine the product inexpensively. As a result of the small size the power output is also small, in "the tens of watts".
The larger commercial version will have much more power.
Scaling could even be done with multiple of these very small units, however the obvious approach is to make larger versions for commercial use.
As an example, in the video tour taken in Jan 2014, Robert said that the liquid version was capable of 30kW (and needed further refinements for reliability), see my comment below.

The profile of the replicator, posted at LENR-Invest Management Team, is:

Michael 'Rocket' Halem, VP / Senior Partner

Michael has 29 years of experience in financial markets as a manager for Salomon Brothers, Nomura Securities, Rocket Partners and Millennium Partners. Previously, Mr. Halem worked at Cape Canaveral where he designed the Space Shuttle Radar Intercept Control Console and the Range Safety Real-Time Telemetry Display System. Mr. Halem earned his BA in Physics from Harvard and his MBA in Finance and Management from Columbia. Mr. Halem enjoys old airplanes, air shows, aerobatics and spending time with his children.

BERKELEY, CA, December 1, 2015 – Brillouin Energy Corp., developer of renewable energy technologies capable of producing commercially useful amounts of thermal energy (heat) based on controlled low energy nuclear reactions (“LENR”), announced today that its Hydrogen Hot Tube™ (HHT™) Boiler System reactor core modules, were the subject of a recently completed independent Technical Validation Report.

The 35-page Report was prepared as technical due diligence by Michael Halem, a third party technical investigator. The Technical Validation Report summarizes the investigation into Brillouin Energy’s HHT™ single tube core prototypes at Brillouin’s Berkeley laboratory and at its research partner SRI International. The results are drawn from a series of calibrated tests of both systems. Mr. Halem personally designed tests on the HHT™ systems and then directed the technical staff of Brillouin Energy and SRI to execute the test plans. The tests, in which 95 channels of data were recorded and then investigated, included multiple technical changes to validate the thermodynamic results.

In all cases, the results were consistent: the data demonstrate with very high confidence that the Brillouin Energy HHT™ prototype repeatedly produced lab-scale excess heat from LENR.

“I was given full access to the experiments,” said Mr. Halem. “I was able to confirm, with a high degree of confidence, excess energy output above chemical and likely due to a nuclear reaction.” The Technical Validation Report affirms that Brillouin Energy’s HHT™ technology “is scalable by assembling multiple HHT™ tubes” in a reactor system. The Report was peer reviewed by Mr. Halem’s technical colleague, Dr. Antoine Guillemin who holds his Masters in Nuclear Physics and Ph.D. in Building Physics. Brillouin Energy’s Technical Validation Report is available upon request to qualified interested parties under a customary non-disclosure agreement.

About Brillouin Energy

Brillouin Energy is a clean-technology company based in Berkeley, California, which is developing, in collaboration with Stanford Research International (SRI), an ultra-clean, low-cost, renewable energy technology that is capable of producing commercially useful amounts of thermal energy from LENR. Brillouin Energy’s technology includes a proprietary method of electrical stimulation of nickel metal conductors using its unique Q-Pulse™ control system. The process stimulates the system to generate LENR reactions, which generates excess heat. The excess heat produced is a product of hydrogen and a nickel metal lattice. Other than the heat output, there are no (zero) toxic or CO2 emissions of any kind.

"It is harder to crack a prejudice than an atom." // "I'd rather be an optimist and a fool than a pessimist and right." -- Albert Einstein

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

of the crowd you're a genius.
When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."
