LENR Cars Seeking Votes for Future Energy Contest

I just learned from LENR Cars CEO Nicolas Chauvin that his company has been selected to compete in the Future Energy online pitching contest organized by Ultra Light Startups, the same contest that George Miley’s LENUCO company was in a few months ago.

The general public is invited to vote for projects they feel are worthy of support. There are four days of voting remaining, and the winning projects will be selected to pitch their business plans at Future Energy events in New York, Boston or Silicon Valley.

Here is a description of the LENR Cars project.

LENR Cars is developing two technologies to reduce carbon emission: – Waste heat recovery system producing electricity from heat based on Rankine microturbines – Condensed matter hydrogen fuel cell that can consume 4000 times less hydrogen than conventional fuel cells for the same electrical output power thanks to LENR process. LENR Cars is currently focusing on the transportation market with high tech collaborations in motor racing. Rankine microturbines are expected to reduce the fuel consumption of vehicles (cars, trucks and boats) by 15% while being affordable for mass production. On a long term, condensed matter hydrogen fuel cells are expected to be able to power electric vehicles for over 20’000 km per hydrogen charge with a lower cost of ownership compared to fossil fuel vehicles.

    Is it me nto reading well or suddenly the event has be re-labelled as a “semi-final”???

  • GreenWin

    Voted. Fascinating to see if the Vote Meter records a sudden burst of votes for a competitor to Cars. Seems this is what mysteriously happened to George Miley’s project – thereby making one wonder… fix?? Or am I being a Meanie Head?

      Actually GreenWin, It appears that they may be on to OUR little posse.
      When I pull up the page, it no longer shows the Vote count unless I click on the specific project.

      Maybe in the Future we should instruct everyone to Vote on OUR Subject at hand then everyone choosing their own 2nd & 3rd options to mix it up a bit should provide a more balanced picture. Presently it does look fixed from Their point of View. This could cause the product of our interest to be disqualified. Just A Thought.

    3 days remaining and we are still in first position.

    Good Luck on the presentation.

    I see you’ve reached out to Rossi at JONP. I hope you’ve done the same with the likes of Brillouin and others you deem suitable.

    voted, and relayed on the social networks…

    This time we have a chance.

    I have made an article which detail the arguments:

    All enthusiast about LENR should think about voting, and calling their friends to support that start-up.

    LENR-Cars is a start-up focused on application of LENR for vehicles. Nicolas Chauvin have an interesting network (including the founder of Logitech, whom Nicolas worked for). He is an experienced “serial innovator”.

    Sure LENR-cars is not (yet?) a reactor builder like Rossi or Defkalion, but they are the symbol of an emerging class of LENR companies focused on applications. A generation of engineer trying to harness that new energy.

    *Beyond LENR-cars start-up, by pushing this LENR application start-up, you will push LENR into the light, with hope to have media get interested.*

    If any LENR start-up win the challenge I hope that it will be a media bomb, like what Elforsk Perspektiv should have been.

    Not sure we will win, but sure if we don’t support LENR even more than last time, the observers may consider that LENR is a dead horse. We have to do better than last time.

    And if LENR-Cars miss their target, but with more votes than Miley, maybe next time Miley, LENR-cars, or another will win because of the generated momentum !

    Probably you asked “What can I do to make LENR go faster”. You have the answer !

    NB: A bit dramatic, but current denial is tragic.
