They should have done this research before they started messing around with tokamaks.

Basic science never gets the big bucks. The funders want to skip to the answers at the back of the book.

There is a whole field of literature (unfortunately not including too many scientists) that have been touting "The Electric Sun" theory. Your might be interested in pursuing it. The SAFIRE (safe fire) Project seems to be the proof of the theory.

Not much activity on this board...But things have been moving apace.

I recently downloaded to Kindle "Lost History (Explorations in Nuclear Research)" by Steven B Krivit.

Essentially, he says after the quantum theory was accepted, and until the Manhattan project, many (basically amateur) researchers noticed what appeared to be transmutations occurring without the high energy bombardment studies that lead to nuclear fusion as practiced today.

The lost history period spanned 1912 to 1927. It's fascinating. I wish Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann could have read it before they shot their mouths off without replicated research, basically placing LENR on the same false native as the global warming hoax.

Are there LENR products being sold and used in industry? (Honest question).

I'm sure you know that there is a great deal of dubiousness about anything Andrea Rossi (E-Cat) says. This does not prove anything, as the major fuel for science is doubt.

Is there anything real going on here? Rossi says that he has units at (unnamed) clients sites generating heat with a positive (5?) coefficient of performance. Do I believe this? Yes

The SAFIRE Project claims to be showing nuclear transformations caused by plasmas, but nothing commercial, yet. Does this sound hopeful? Yes, could be the ticket.

Brilliant Light ( brilliantlightpower.com ) claims success, but no commercial systems. It should be obvious if the correct configuration generated thermal energy, it should be easy to use solar cells to collect it from a glowing reactor, but I cannot see this as commercially viable.

Do I think any of this is going anywhere? Soon?

What is soon? I think, maybe 5 years for something that will make anyone money. My guess.

I hope it's something.

Yesterday, A. Rossi announced his team achieved enough electricity production to power the plasma and produce excess electricity and heat. Ignoring the production cost (in a start) of Deuterium hydrogen and Lithium7 (not confirmed) this represents a COP of infinity.

Better ROI than the ITER for sure!
