BERKELEY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Following the successful replication of “over-unity” amounts of thermal energy from its LENR renewable energy technologies, Brillouin Energy Corp. announces the closing of $7,750,000 in its Series B round. The lead investor in the round, James (Jim) Farrell, has also joined the Company’s Board of Directors.

“I’m convinced that Brillouin Energy is positioned to accelerate our R&D efforts this year and that we have the best team and experience to execute our plan to develop commercial-level LENR technologies,” said Jim Farrell, Managing Director of Beyond Carbon Energy LLC. “Since joining the Board in 2016, Brillouin Energy has made significant progress towards commercializing the development of our LENR technologies.”

Brillouin Energy enters 2017 with an aggressive research and development program aimed at building on its significant progress toward commercializing LENR technologies. The Company is in the process of finalizing a $15 million Series C round offering, which it intends to launch later this month.

“This kind of financial support allows us to continue to build on the significant progress we have made toward commercializing the development of Brillouin Energy’s LENR technologies,” said Robert W. George II, Brillouin Energy’s CEO. “We’re excited that so many new and current investors value the opportunity ahead for Brillouin Energy as much as we do. Together, we’re going to make ultra-clean, low-cost renewable energy a global reality.”

    This kind of stuff gives LENR a bad name. These small companies are obviously not going to reveal their secrets. The whole industry is based on undisclosed knowhow.

    • Do you recall how Bell Labs was instructed to ‘share’ info on the transistor (the result of what is called a “consent decree”)?

      “The decree obligated Bell to license all their technologies for reasonable royalties.”

        1) Will your company be the sole supplier of the E-Cat manufacturers with the necessary fuel? No
        2) Will your company be the sole buyer of nickel from nickel producers, in order to prepare the fuel for E-Cats? No
        It sounds like Rossi is planning to do what Bell was ordered to do.

        • Bob Greenyer

          If he does not – I am afraid there at at least 3 technologies waiting in the wings.

          • Rossi Fan

            Actually zero is the number for LENR. Not a single product has been released. Not even a hobby kit that produces a single watt of excess power. The party line is we will sell no wine until it is time. Cannot sell you the $3 lame cold duck because we are working on the $300 vintage du chateau model and so the release date gets punted from 2011 to 2012 to 2013 … 2017…
            So please stop it with this hogwash about capitalism and business and free enterprise. LENR is all about investor burn rate. The CEO of a company I work for now said it best. 1 in 20 of these high tech start ups actually make any money. The rest live off the bounty of the venture capital burn rate. They fail. So what? But in the mean time their management and employees make a bundle.

          • Bob Greenyer

            The 3 technologies I talk of are all self funded.

            James Farrel is lead investor; does the investment represent only his judgement, or that of a group?

            I sure like the people involved with the self sustaining hydrogen on demand technology of http://www.joiscientific.com located at NASA’s KSC. The co-founder/ investment banker of GoPro Camera invested $5.5 million and now sits on the board of directors. The business advisers for Joi Scientific are highly credible. Such as VP of Microsoft 4 Asia, Retired Brigadier General, former Department of Energy executive and many other talented open minded skeptics.

        Bob, how are you?
        You seem to have been through some testing times lately.
        Your language has become less scientifically conservative and more colourful.
        Is 2017 going to be the big year for LENR?

        • Bob Greenyer

          It certainly is – the biggest years have already happened but this hopefully will be the year that the land of the good and the living get to harness this technology.

          There is a very good reason that Sterling Allan confessed to his crimes when he understood the implications.

          • Bob, a word of advice beyond spelling if I may.

            Your latest assertions and your means of delivering them have progressed so far beyond convention that, even one who is predisposed to believe you based on your history of contributions, such as me, will require clarity and proof moving forward.

            I think you must leave the riddles and hyperbole behind and offer up proof of what you are asserting without any appreciable delay or your credibility will crater.

            Even among friends and allies.

          • Bob Greenyer

            Your first reaction will be to reject it beyond all measure.

            But use your eyes and you mind.

          • Give me data. Pure reproducible data without your thick religious sauce drizzled all over it.

          • Bob Greenyer

            You will have to deal with the truth your way – this is the way I have dealt with it.

          • Sure I understand and respect that. What I’m saying is remove your interpretations as best you can and just give us the facts as you know them.

          • cashmemorz

            So what I find is Sterling Allen confessed to pedophilia. Does that in any way connect to Low Energy Nuclear Reaction? That seems to be a personal failing having nothing to do with energy that drives machinery and such like. Or am I missing more about that person and other crimes connected to LENR?

            Exactly as LENR G says. Bob, if you have new information, please share it. Let everyone come to their own interpretations. The drama and mystery do not help at all in advancing this crucial technology – to the contrary, it only makes the existing stigma that much worse.

          • interstellar hobo

            Because every time you’ve gone all mystical and hinting at big things, they have not worked out. That, combined with the UFO stuff on Facebook doesn’t help things any. I appreciate what MFMP aims to do but you have to bear in mind that LENR attracts the lunatic fringe. They’re in an echo chamber and will be excited and agree with you about anything. It’s intoxicating. If you know something, actually know it, not suspect it, just say so, or keep a lid on it until you do, is all I can suggest.

    This is good for LENR. Brillouin seems to be moving “slowly”, but moving forward never the less.
    I would like to have seen higher outputs, but they do have rather well working devices and repeatability. And they have rather high quality “vetted” reports and data from SRI on their devices.
