The audience will consist of leading Operating Executives from across the Cable industry. Dr. Mills will share his vision for alternative, Hydrino® derived energy and present the SunCell® development program.
So Mills will be pitching his non-functional product to a group focused on reducing energy costs in the cable industry.

Why do this? If the SunCell actually works then they (and everyone else) will be eager customers.

My best guess is that he is seeking another alliance where he promises early access or a discount on future products (if they ever come into being) in exchange for being able to announce a strategic partnership with a reputable industry group now. Just more activity related to raising cash from investors.

That seems the most reasonable explanation to me. Merely attending and giving a presentation has marketing utility. He may even be able to hit up some of the less technologically literate attendees for corporate or personal funds. I'm sure such conferences have their share of PHBs with golden parachutes and far more access to capital than their competence should allow. Mills is monetizing the Peter Principal.

Why do this?
Possibly because he thinks engineers in the cable and telecoms industry will be less alert to free energy scams than engineers in the power industry. It's the professional equivalent of spelling mistakes in the phishing industry; the last thing you want is a well-informed mark.

I know it's non conspiratorial and plain, but maybe Mills is talking to the telecom industry because there is a substantial number of telecom towers that require non grid power.

That's not any better. If he's not a con man trying to rip them off, then he's a moron trying to sell something before he actually invents it.

He STILL doesn't have a sustainable Hydrino reaction. Despite this he's yammering on about heaters and generators that he's repeatedly FAILED to produce for 30 years despite CONSTANT promises that production units were just around the corner.

It doesn't matter if he's a con man, or just an example of the Dunning-Kruger effect in a a manufacturing context. He'll never have a production unit either way.

That's really the core message. His motivations and intentions are irrelevant, because either way, he's incapable of following through on the claims he makes.

As a general rule, they require it right now, not in thirty years.
