Brillouin Energy Corp has raised $7.75 million for its low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) research and development.

The money described as a “Series B round of funding” will pay for an aggressive effort to commercialize Brillouin’s technology, a press release states. The funds largely came from investor James “Jim” Farrell who has joined the company’s board of directors.

Farrell is the managing director of Beyond Carbon Energy LLC and Founder and Director of the Climate Change Investigation, Innovation and Investment Company, his Linked In page indicates. He’s a graduate of Cornell University and the Harvard Business School who is committed to funding breakthroughs in clean energy.
