Low Energy nuclear Reaction (LENR) Cells are a new way to use nano-structured electrodes in power cells to produce nuclear reactions at low temperature (relative to the temperature for hot fusion). While still in the research stage, this promises ultimate development of “green” nuclear powered “batteries”, offering remarkable energy densities well beyond present technology. The background for this technology and current research on LENR are discussed.
