It was recently announced from Örebro University in Sweden that Sven Kullander will hold a public lecture about “Tomorrow’s nuclear power – is it cold or hot?”
Sven Kullander, Professor Emeritus at Uppsala University and chairman of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences’ Energy Committee, participated on 29 March as observer together with associate professor of theoretical physics Hanno Essén at a new trial in Bologna of the Energy catalyzer. During their visit to Bologna they met with the Rector of the Bologna University, Professor Ivano Dionigi, and had a discussion with him, Rossi, Focardi, Levi and Bianchini on the project. According to Kullander and Levi, future collaborative research is possible.
Sven Kullander’s and Hanno Essén’s report later created a huge buzz on the internet with quotes like:
“In some way a new kind of physics is taking place. It’s enigmatic, but probably no new laws of nature are involved. We believe it is possible to explain the process with known laws of nature,”
“My belief that there is an energy development far beyond what one would expect has been strengthened significantly as I have had the opportunity to see the process for myself and perform measurements,” said Kullander.
“Everything that we’ve found so far fits together. There is nothing that seems to be strange. All people seem to be honest and competent,” Essén added.
NyTeknik reported: “In line of what they expressed during the discussion in February, they believe that the physics of the energy catalyzer may possibly be explained by a combination of atomic, molecular, nuclear and plasma physics. At the same time they are skeptical of detailed and hypothetical theories suggested at this stage, and stressed instead the need for more data. They describe that Focardi and Levi have the same approach, and support their viewpoint.”
Sven Kullander has an impressive list of committe memberships including:
- Nuclear Physics Research Committee, CERN, 1968 – 1969
- Swiss Institute for Nuclear Research, 1968 – 1970
- Swedish Atomic Research Council, 1975 – 1977
- Committee for Physics Experiments at the CERN Proton Synchrotron, 1977 – 1979
- Swedish Natural Science Research Council, 1977 – 1983
- CERN Council, 1980 – 1983
- CERN Research Board, 1982 – 1984
- Board of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Uppsala, 1984 – 1993
- Scientific Council of the Cooler Ring COSY project, Jülich, Germany, 1989 – 1992
- Programme Advisory Committee, COSY, Jülich, 1994 -
- Scientific Policy Committee, Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics, Heidelberg, 1991-
- Swedish CERN Committee, 1977 – 1995
- Asea Brown Boveri Energy Prize Award committee, 1990 – 1997
- Board of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, 1998 -
There is no doubt that Sven Kullander will bring some interesting observations and thoughts about LENR and E-cat to his lecture in November.

In the wake of Fukushima-crash discussion again of the future nuclear power. The rush to replace the world’s eighty percent dependent on fossil fuels coal, oil and gas. Severe climate change would be difficult to avoid without massive expansion of both renewable energy and nuclear power.
Very great efforts are made to substantially improve today’s nuclear reactors. Within a few decades are expected to see a new type of reactors, breeder reactors, both safer and more efficient than current reactors. In an even longer perspective, the hope is that hot fusion on a large scale to provide mankind with almost infinite amount of energy.
But maybe all these planned large-scale facilities to competition of small reactors that could be every man and woman were property. The cold fusion has recently been developed in Bologna can be housed in an apparatus which is not much bigger than a coffee maker and generating energy only with a few teaspoons of nickel powder.
