Dr. Grimshaw started giving presentations, particularly on the public policy case for cold fusion, when he was still a master’s degree student at the LBJ School of Public Affairs. Most of his professional presentations since then have also been on policy considerations of the phenomenon and progress in the LENR research documentation initiative. Many of them have been at the International Conferences on Cold Fusion (ICCFs) He has also given updates on the current status and future prospects of cold fusion to a variety of audiences. For example, he gave a presentation on cold fusion to Exelon, one of the largest energy companies in the U.S. The thrust of these outreach efforts has been to make the best case possible for cold fusion.
