Robert says that "cold fusion" definitely is not an accurate name for it, and neither is LENR. It does not involved conventional nuclear fission or hot nuclear fusion processes. He has renamed the process Controlled Electron Capture Reactions or CECR, or "phonon-moderated hydrogen reactions."
Here are the companies and agencies currently doing LENR(CECR) R&D:
University of Missouri and Energetics Technologies
Toyota / Technova
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries
US Department of Energy
