And here's the Conclusion of that paper:

"The analysis presented in this paper leads us to conclude
that realistic possibilities exist for designing LENR
devices capable of producing "green energy", that is production
of excess heat at low cost without lethal nuclear
waste, dangerous gamma rays or unwanted neutrons.
The necessary tools and the essential theoretical
know-how to manufacture such devices appear to be well
within the reach of presently available technology. Vigorous
efforts must now be made to develop such devices
whose functionality requires all three interactions of the
Standard Model acting in concert."
