LENRGY performs projects to document the research of LENR investigators as a primary way of contributing to the field. Many of the researchers who began their work soon after the 1989 announcement are now leaving the field because of retirement or health issues. The large volume of research records developed over the past 30 years is at risk of being lost. The LENR Research Documentation Initiative (LRDI) has been established to help researchers make sure that their records are preserved and kept available for additional analysis and interpretation as the LENR field continues to progress. Because the records have promise of helping realize the benefits of LENR, they represent a vital asset for humankind.
A companion website has been prepared for the LRDI. Click here for more information. Relevant articles and presentations are listed below.

The LRDI was initiated with a pilot project with Dr. Edmund Storms to document his extensive research career in the LENR field. Dr. Storms began his investigations within a few weeks after the 1989 LENR announcement while he was a research scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Dr. Storms has been instrumental in making advances in experiments and explanation of LENR. Materials from six types of sources – published and unpublished reports, lab notebooks, electronic data files, hard copy records, and Dr. Storms’ extensive LENR library – were assembled. The Storms LENR Research Documentation project was conducted in three stages – materials collection, organization, and documentation. Relevant publications from the project are listed below.
