Brillouin Energy Corp. presented its groundbreaking thermal energy technology on Capitol Hill last week. Attendees included Members of Congress, congressional aides, federal government officials, industry representatives, and citizens’ groups concerned with the federal government’s progress on developing clean energy solutions.

“It was great to see that much interest in DC for a true safe green nuclear power technology,” commented Brillouin’s President and Chief Technology Officer, Robert Godes.

Attendees were able to learn about Brillouin’s prototype LENR reactors and hear from a number of speakers, including Dr. Michael McKubre of Stanford Research International (SRI). Brillouin and SRI have entered into a technology research agreement under which SRI is engaged in calibration testing and independent analysis of the Brillouin technology.

As Dr. McKubre noted in a report distributed at the event, “it is very clear that something on the order of four times (4x) and potentially more gain in power (and therefore ultimately energy) was achieved at an impressive and industrially significant operating temperature of around 640°C. To my knowledge this had not been achieved before in the LENR field. The fact that the Q pulse input is capable of triggering the excess power on and off is also highly significant.”

In addition, Dr. Banning Garrett, former Strategic Foresight Senior Fellow at the Atlantic Council, was also present and issued a report detailing the current status of the LENR field and credibility of Brillouin’s claims. As Dr. Garrett noted, “LENR power generation, if realized, has the potential to become one of the technologies for transformation of the global energy system.”

Brillouin’s breakthrough technology is now garnering national and international attention and the company looks forward to working with government and industry leaders to bring this technology to market.

Background on Brillouin
Brillouin Energy Corporation is a clean-technology company based in Berkeley, CA, which is developing, in collaboration with the Stanford Research Institute (SRI), an ultra-clean, low-cost, renewable energy technology that is capable of producing commercially useful amounts of thermal energy.

The Brillouin technology is based on low energy nuclear reactions (LENR). The result is ultra-clean, low-cost, and sustainable renewable energy that doesn’t rely on any type of fossil fuel, chemical, or nuclear fuel. This process produces zero emissions and no solid wastes which pollute the environment.

Brillouin’s technology is a proprietary method of electrical stimulation of nickel metal conductors using a proprietary control system. The process pulses the system to generate excess heat. The excess heat produced is a product of reactions in hydrogen (from water or gas) in the nickel metal lattice. The process is neither fission nor fusion—rather, electrons change protons to nearly-stationary neutrons in the nickel metal lattice, generating heat.

The reactor converts hydrogen into helium, which has slightly less mass—that mass difference creates a large amount of thermal energy without burning any hydrocarbon energy sources. The reactor is very small relative to the amount of thermal energy output, making the technology very clean and efficient with a virtually inexhaustible fuel supply. Brillouin is currently working to scale the heat production up to commercial output levels.
Brillouin has developed TWO systems:

1) The WET™ Boiler, which is being designed to generate heat from 212º to 302º Fahrenheit, and is intended for home heating and hot water use.
2) The HHT™ Boiler, which is being designed to generate heat at 932º to 1,112º Fahrenheit, and is intended for commercial electricity generation.

  1. Throughout the year, the government of India has decided to initiate and fund half a dozen projects.

    Other countries such as for example Russia has also shown interest on a governmental level.

    Let’s hope this presentation lead to some substantial initiatives. BLINK BLINK

  2. This sounds VERY promising! I sincerely hope to hear more good news from this company in the future.

  3. Thanks Ruby:
    I still wonder if helium might be formed in the following fission fusion reactions. Nickel hydride, H~Ni~H absorbs its covalently bonded protons to form zinc in an excited state, Zn* that in turn fission into helium, He and nickel, Ni (with two fewer neutrons).
    Perhaps the following fission-fusion reactions are taking place in H-Ni LENR to make helium.

    For example:
    2 p + Ni(64) > Zn(66)* > Ni(62) + He(4) 11.8 MeV

    It would be interesting to see if they find any isotopic shifts of nickel.

    2 p + Ni(64) > Ni(62) + He(4) 11.8 MeV

    2 p + Ni(62) > Ni(60) + He(4) 9.9 MeV

    2 p + Ni(61) > Ni(59) + He(4) 9.1MeV

    2 p + Ni(60) > Ni(58) + He(4) 7.9 MeV

    2 p + Ni(58) > Ni(56) + He(4) 5.8 MeV

    1. PS
      I tend to think like this because the Mitsubishi transmutations show that deuteride reacts directly with heavy nuclei.

  4. I have been fascinated by the potential of this technology since I was a child in Detroit where I spent a lot of time with a friend of the family inventor and sign maker. Glenn had the ultimate neon sign fabrication equipment, vacuum pumps, glass working equipment and an apparatus for seperating neon, argon, krypton and xenon. Glenn taught me a lot about noble gas technology as he called it. Noble Gas Breeding – he said, can provide clean unlimited energy… Looks like you nailed it! He gave me a neon tube that would light up and get warm when you held in near a standard flourescent fixture or some static electricity… cold fusion in a tube… I have been recently experimenting with argon breeding and processing of high grade electronic scrap for precious metals… I have had some very interesting results. I wish I had access to a mass spectrometer for output material testing. I think Alan has a great suggestion for other posible reactions. While processing nickle I have had Zinc show up… Noble Gas Technology has amazing potential. Energy and materials science. Breed noble gases and release energy(exothermic). Take noble gases and input solar energy and breed new elements(potentially endothermic).. Noble gases could provide both heating and cooling..

  5. The LENR processes are real, and varied. There are dozens of ways that atoms interact under various temperatures and pressures to force isotope changes and even element changes (this goes on in nature all over the universe). Humans WILL learn to control this for energy generation. The USA is wasting time by not putting a billion dollars a year into harnessing this.

    1. To be precise, it is not the job of a state to fund LENR today, as it is able to attract investors.

      One job of government would be to support the evidence and end the denial of LENR by a clear communication.
      This is over any government capabilities, who is slave to media and academics, who are slave to their ego.

      another would be to establish a playground where companies can work, invest, research, with fair expectation to get benefit when it works.

      Today I don’t see that government are able to do that.
      What I see is that their either implement CYA policies, or protect incumbent lobbies, or follow ideologies pushed by media popular lobbies, all three which will slow down LENR…

      This is why I think that LENRG non-governmental entrepreneurial ecosystem are the kind of solutions.

      For me part of the job of those “ecosystem” would be to influence the governments so they helps instead of blocking LENR.
      Helping by regulating intelligently not by comforting old industries and old malthusians lobbies, by embracing the transition with safety net and not with firewall.
