The main research work in ENEA (Italian Agency for Energy New Technologies and Environment) in the field of Condensed Matter Nuclear Science was oriented towards material science in order to increase both the magnitude and reproducibility of excess of power production. The work was performed within a cooperative framework involving University of Rome La Sapienza, SRI, Energetics and also NRL that has been established specifically for fundamental research in the field of material science. Such a research strategy was conceived to gain a significant control of the phenomenon in order to create appropriate conditions to operate diagnostics both for seeking nuclear products and related signals and to define the physics of the process. The excess of heat reproducibility increased up to more than 60% and the gain, in some occasions, was larger that 100%. Material processes developed at ENEA have been successfully used also in the other Institutions involved in the cooperation both in loading and in calorimetric experiments. The amplitude of the signals giving a very high signal/noise ratio, the gains in energy, the level of transferred reproducibility and their correlation with the status of the material, are well above noise and error bar criteria. Detailed experimental results will be reported.
