Iwamura is not talking about fusing hydrogen into helium, but apparently about catalysing other reactions in which metals are turned into other metals by absorbing a deuteron (followed by beta decay).

This is not cold fusion, and it could be an energy source (it must be exothermic or it wouldn't happen). Whether it can be done safely from the point of view of both chemical and radioactive contamination is less obvious:
