MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Anthropocene Institute today announced the kickoff of the ICCF24 Solid State Energy Summit, the conference where industry leaders will take a critical look at the field of lattice-activated nuclear reactions (LENR), also known as solid-state atomic reactions. and fusion energy, or “cold fusion”. The conference will focus on observations, results and theory, with the aim of satisfying the increased interest in the practical fusion of the investment and research communities. The conference will take place at the Computer History Museum (CHM) in Mountain View, CA + Hopin Online Streaming Platform, July 25-28, 2022.
An emerging $15 trillion global energy market
Fusion has attracted intense interest and investment lately, as people race to find clean, sustainable forms of energy to fight climate change. According to Bloomberg, the achievement of net energy – where energy produced exceeds energy used – via nuclear fusion is approaching and would be momentous for the global energy market and GDP of $15 trillion.
A subset of the field of fusion, lattice-enabled nuclear reactions (LENR), or solid-state energy has been reported for decades by independent researchers around the world. Better known as cold fusion or low-energy nuclear reactions, observations suggest energy production on the scale of nuclear reactions but produced from chemical systems without extreme temperatures or pressures. ICCF24 was organized to accelerate the emerging field of solid state energy into a new era of fundamental research and development. The conference features 65 speakers, including several from US government agencies, as well as 45 research abstracts, panels and roundtables.
Government officials, investors, scientists and innovators will speak
Distinguished speakers include: Nobuo Tanaka, former Executive Director of the International Energy Agency; Florian Metzler, research scientist at the MIT Industrial Performance Center; Matt Trevithick, Partner at DCVC; Steve Katinsky, co-founder and director LENRIA Corporation; Huw Price, Emeritus Professor Emeritus and Philosopher of Science; Oliver Barham, project manager, Naval Surface Warfare Center Indian Head; Theresa Benyo, PhD, Principal Investigator, NASA; Peter Shannon, Founder, Radius Mobility; and David Nagel, Research Professor, George Washington University.
Join us at the ICCF24 Solid-State Energy Summit for plans for a competition and prize, panels on government initiatives, investment, industry, and startups working on near-term commercialization.
