This study aims to bring the reader to speed with the events that have transpired in the cold fusion community as well as its impact on society. Part of the project involves how society responded to the Pons and Fleischmann report in 1989. Then experimental setups and scientific theories behind the technology were investigated to provide insights as to which are most feasible, and the potential uses of each method. Lastly, this project speculated what would change in today’s society if this technology were to become marketable soon.
