Question for written answer E-009616-16
to the Commission
Rule 130
Piernicola Pedicini (EFDD)

 Subject:  Latest findings on CF (cold fusion)
 Answer in writing 

In October 2016, the 20th International Conference on Condensed Matter Nuclear Science (ICCF20) was held in Sendai, Japan. Its objective was to tackle energy issues through the exchange of findings and research methods in the field of cold fusion.

A growing number of scientific institutions are conducting experiments on cold nuclear fusion (CNF), using Pons and Fleischmann’s electrolysis cell and low-energy nuclear reaction (LENR) devices. However, the results of these experiments are often contradictory and unclear.

— Is the Commission aware of the latest scientific findings in the field of cold fusion?— If so, does it consider the results reliable? Do they hold promise for the future replacement of fossil fuels with clean and renewable energy sources derived from cold fusion or low-energy nuclear reactions?
