US Venture Capitalists Interested in Cold Fusion
A US company trying to develop a cold fusion device similar to the e-cat has attracted some impressive support and cash from venture capitalists. The CEO of Brillouin Energy Corporation, a Berkley, California, company that claims to have had its cold fusion device up and running since October is Robert A. George II, the managing director at Grosvenor Financial Partners, LLC. Grosvenor is a venture capital company based in Millington, New Jersey.
Brillouin plans to develop cold fusion devices to heat buildings, generate electricity and power ships. Like Defkalion its website mentions using cold fusion for desalination process. Brillouin, formerly Quantum Fusion, was founded by electrical engineer Robert Godes who serves as the company’s chief technology officer. Brillouin is currently building a boiler to test its cold fusion process which is reportedly a nickel hydrogen process. Godes who has been working on cold fusion since 1992 apparently invented the process Brillouin is using.
Brillouin’s business model is to enter the US commercial boiler market. It would also develop devices for commercial, industrial and residential purposes. Its website states it has agreements to license its technology in three other countries but does not identify them. The website also states that one of Brillouin’s devices the pulse generator is being tested at SRI International in Menlo Park, CA. Unsubstantiated reports claim that US government scientists at Las Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, have been able to duplicate Brillouin’s results. History buffs will recognize Las Alamos as the place where they invented the atomic bomb during World War II.
Grosevenor Financial Partners has helped other energy companies raise tens of millions of dollars. It looks like cold fusion is becoming big business and attracting interest from real investors.
