A few days ago I mentioned that I had been given honorary membership in the newly formed Open Power Association, founded in Italy which is committed to exploring LENR technology in an open manner (similar to the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project). I decided to send some questions to Ugo Abundo, president of the organization to get an idea of what the status of the project is, and am happy that he has responded (in English!).
1) What are the current projects and activities of the Open Power Association?
The two readings of the name, “free energy” and “shared control”, are complementary.
No freedom is possible without available energy. Aim of the Association is therefore to offer mankind the free results of research in new energy field.
Its activities cover the range from simply develop the Hydrobetatron Project (the heir of “Leopoldo Pirelli” Instruction Institute’s Athanor) to reach a synergy with the efforts of all LENR researchers aimed by our same targets.
2) What kind of testing is going on, and what results are being seen?
We want to proof the reality of “heat excess” by doubtless calorimetric direct measurements. Actually, important results were obtained by comparison methods, and a suitable calorimetric reactor was assembled to reach the final target, direct determination.
We work on two instrumented lines, the first for screening, the second for C.O.P. recording.
Our revolutionary “fluidized bed powder cathode” was asked for Patent on April 2012.
3) What kind of attention and interest is being shown by outside individuals and organizations?
A large attention is actually growing about us. Since we have designed and assembled the “F-pulsator” (a device to push high frequency pulses into a specially designed reactor), some reserved organizations and a lot of international-level scientists had a contact with us, to analyze their theories or experimentations by our device, according with the “modus operandi” of Open Power Association.
4) What is the funding situation for the Association?
The Association is basically self-financed by the membership fees, and gets free funds from sustainers and investors.
5) How can interested people get involved in the association?
We hope to involve more and more people, at first by sustaining our efforts by joining us as a member, then by sharing our results, so involving new interested people.
6) Are you interested in expanding the reach of the Association beyond Italy, and if so, what are your plans to do this?
We are going to establish a new office in London, from where will organize meetings about the subject, using such a location as a pole for radial diffusion of world-wide free sharing of “science for mankind”.
We thanks for your kind attention to our project, and hope to offer an useful contribution.
