Report on Cold Fusion

Released Dec. 1, 2004

: "While significant progress has been made in the sophistication of calorimeters since the review of this subject in 1989, the conclusions reached by the reviewers today are similar to those found in the 1989 review."

Charge Letter to Reviewers

The DoE did not officially release the 18 anonymous reviews the report was based on, but a copy was circulated and it has been uploaded here:

News Reports on DOE Report

Opinion > Rethinking Cold Fusion Zeal -- Is it Warranted? - The fact that various cold fusion phenomenon are scientifically reproducible has been well established. What is not established is that cold fusion has the potential of delivering significant usable energy in a cost-effective manner. Should we be so adamant about promoting it? (PESN Dec. 2)

Evidence on Cold Fusion Remains Inconclusive, New Review Finds - Two-thirds of the reviewers did not find the evidence for nuclear reactions in the experiments convincing. Almost all of them, however, said that aspects of cold fusion merited consideration for further research. (NY Times Dec. 2)

DOE Report on Cold Fusion - looks like there is nothing really new since Pons & Fleischmann in 1989 (Slashdot Dec. 1, 2004). First to break the story.

The 2004 DOE Review reached the same conclusions as the 1989 DOE review: it doesn't allow federal funding of dedicated cold fusion programs, but it is open to funding well-designed experiments on specific aspects of the cold fusion phenomenon.

Many leading cold fusion researchers say that the door was apparently slammed shut in their faces a few weeks after the 2004 DoE Review was released. When researchers applied for a research grant, their applications were summarily rejected, without even submitting it for peer-review. See: Dr. Melvin Miles rejection Dr. Edmund Storms rejection
