An article published on the Indian Business Standard web site reports that some ‘top nuclear scientists in India are urging the newly elected government to revive a ‘cold fusion’ research program with a view to solving the many energy problems facing the country.
Mahadevan Srinivasan, who was involved in an earlier cold fusion program at the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) in Mumbai said “We are making a frantic effort to revive cold fusion/LENR research in India . . . Former Atomic Energy Commission chairman Srikumar Banerjee is solidly backing me (in this effort).” He said he was trying to get the government under Prime Minister Modi to start a task force to investigate cold fusion.
Srinivasan cites work by Andrea Rossi that has shown that mass-production of suitcase-sized reactors is possible.
He states, “One such LENR generator located in each village and powering a local village-level micro-grid can work wonders . . . It is hoped that the new government will take cognition of this breakthrough development and take necessary steps to foster this new technology in India.”
Srinivasan said that he met with the Indian energy minister last week about the topic. He also referenced the fact that an LENR research center is being set up in Baoding, China.
It seems from this report and others we have been following here at E-Cat World that there is a definite shift in favor of LENR taking place these days. People with insight and influence are starting to discuss this topic openly and and discuss it with key decision makers. I expect that this kind of activity will continue and accelerate over time.
