    Dear Andrea,

    I understand that the people doing the test must be a combination of scientist and/or engineer. With respect that they have a scientific background, before the test began, I would think that they must have been a bit skeptical that your device would work as well as you had described. During the test have they expressed their surprise that, yes indeed, it does work just as you indicated? Have they ever expressed amazement that someone has been able to construct such a device? People, including myself, are getting very excited with your success so far. Keep up your fantastic work, I have a feeling you will be totally successful.

    Sincerely,

    Robert Dorr

    Dear Andrea

    Very encouraging news in your recent posts about the testing.

    It’s a huge step already. Yet you say you have an important tests tomorrow. I imagine this test is a very significant one if you mention it in the context of what is already ongoing.

    Good luck to you and all teams involved tomorrow.

    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you for keeping us informed of such wonderful progress.

    I have been following and enjoining the ecat for many years. I am a novice to science so forgive me if my thoughts are unclear. My questions are: Does the SKL reactor require hydrogen to operate? If yes, is it a one time injection when manufacturing the device or must it be continuously injected during operation?

    Thank you in advance for your response and wishing you the best success.

    Andrea,

    I’m very encouraged by the current testing going on in your lab and wish you continued success with them. A few questions if you can:

    1) Do the current 3rd Party tests include the replication of tests they previously viewed remotely via Skype?
    2) If so, did the 3rd Party bring their own instruments to perform these tests?
    3) If so, have the results of the remote and in-person tests been consistent so far?
    4) Do any of these tests involve examination of the reactor core before and after operation (or will it remain sealed)?

    Thanks for your indulgence as always,

    Bill

    Dear Andras,

    I find your model of the electron describing a rotating current loop very interesting. Have you ever thought about whether you could use it to describe other leptons or even quarks? This could then perhaps lead to a new standard model of physics.

    Dear Andrea,
    Your latest reply to Anonymous you speak about a ‘charge distribution rotating at the speed of light that causes a current loop’, which I think is quite fascinating.
    Until now I always believed that currents are facilitated by electrons, lack of electrons (holes) or ions, in fact moving particles. Now I believe you are saying that currents can also be caused by a ‘charge distribution’.
    Some questions of this electrical engineer:
    1. What carries the ‘Charge’ ? Is it just the local EM field strength or maybe a photon?
    2. Can these non-particle currents only run at very small (‘attometer’) scales or is it also possible at macro (m) scales?

    Then something quite different:
    I very much hope that the testing going on will be enormously successful. Your Partner is now doing the test, but you said that the presentation will only be after the certification company has done their testing als well. However, will you give us some idea of how the testing of the partner has gone after they have finished like:
    3a. That it was successful,
    3b. That excess energy is confirmed
    3c. That SSM is confirmed
    3d. That e.g. 5 kW of electrical output power is confirmed?
    I am sure that you are very much aware of the situation of global warming and I personally believe that people will not be able to reverse that situation. However if there is one apparatus that is able to dramatically reduce the exhaust of CO2, then it is the Ecat in relatively short term. A positive answer to all the number 3 confirmations would give many people hope that the tide can be changed, so I hope that you will be able confirm these before the presentation later this year.
    Thanks, kind regards, Gerard

    The electron can be modeled, as described in my paper, by a current loop, generated by a charge distribution that rotates at the speed of light, wherein such current loop is proposed as the origin of the electron’s mass, inertia, angolar momentum, spin, and magnetic momentum.

    Dear Andrea,

    E-Cat’s for household / domestic use; what type of product will be the most appropriate / applicable / easily utilised?

    A large proportion of UK households are connected to the national grid for electricity supply, usually an underground cable enters a house and connects to a meter then distribution junction boxes all mounted within usually a wall recess / cupboard / cabinet / closet / storeroom / under a staircase, a large proportion of electrical meter installations occupy small confined spaces with cable runs hidden away under floorboards inside walls in foundations and roof spaces. Similarly, a large proportion of households have gas heating, underground connection to the gas grid, piped into a house connected to a boiler, the boiler with its water pipework pumping hot water around a house to heating panels and or other domestic use. Some households have electrical heating panels with thermal mass heat storage all cabled back to separate distribution and metering for lower cost off peak electrical usage. Many household installations around the world are likely of a similar complexity, many of the people living in these households being totally unaware of the complexity and cost of the built-in infrastructure supplying the day to day services.

    How do you upgrade a household replacing existing energy supplies with E-Cats; possibly replace the boiler with a combined heater and electrical supply E-Cat unit, cap off the existing gas supply, modify the water pipework, run electrical cables to the electrical distribution board, reconfigure the distribution board and disconnect from the electrical supply and metering.

    The upgrading of a household to a built in configuration is likely an expensive undertaking, the E-Cat unit and on-going replacement charges may be cost effective but installation costs will incur the time of trained qualified personnel for gas fitting, electrical installation, water plumbing, occasionally some building work required repositioning installation spaces, woodwork / plasterwork, then redecoration, assuming you can even find sufficient space to install, not forgetting all the paperwork as you apply then wait to be physically disconnected from the gas and electrical grids, final readings then meters removed. To do this over many households in the UK will likely require far more qualified trades people than is currently available, even with a large program of training up more trades people it is likely there will be potential customers waiting years to get an installation.

    For built in household / domestic use you may be in a situation where sales of E-Cats will be limited by available installation capacity not your production capacity. The people that have signed up with you for a domestic E-Cat boiler can purchase them and take delivery, but will they be able to find the qualified / trained people to install and reconfigure their households.

    The likely way forward for household use will be in parallel with longer term built in installations, the use of portable E-Cat electrical power packs to plug in existing equipment, self-contained E-Cat powered portable heaters or floor / wall mounted heaters to replace heater panels, mass production of one size fits all products designed and targeted at the most common household use, products that allow people to buy off the shelf and install / use directly by themselves.

    It may be that centralised electricity distribution and portable power packs are the fastest and lowest cost routes forward for market penetration, you your partner and business advisors are likely involved in on-going discussions and investigations of the economics of many different business models to find a way forward.

    Keith Thomson.

    @ Alexei Savchenko:
    This article is extremely informative and should be posted in every university in the world so as to help explain to students why physics as an important subject remains as it were ‘ in the Middle Ages’ as according to Ch Stemmenos of which I agree.

    Only since the Academy of Science (AS) became an institution did the emergence of alternative physics become a reality. What this article infers is but for the (AS), physics would be a lot further along the road to understanding both the physical and the physical vacuum together with that of gravity. In other words the (AS) has been a detriment to the advancement of scientific discoveries and this I can only but support as my own theoretical understanding and practical applications have been peer reviewed and rejected as not suitable for present day understanding i.e. considered before their time.

    One part of the paper that caught my attention was its reference to a peculiarity of alternative physics (AP) regarding its cheapness being its strength and weakness. One obvious strength being that the (AP) physicist cannot waste a ton of taxpayers money being independent and thereby has to be more sure of his scientific reasoning due to a limited budget. I do not think it hard to get necessary results if what is required has been fully understood but I do agree that the understanding is most important but not impossible as to contemplate does not require finance. Research equipment and meticulous studies do feature in most (AP) programmes. However, regarding the alternative physicist having neither the time, opportunity nor experience I cannot agree with due to my own personal experience in my own line of research. To demonstrate is to prove but the (AS) has no interest in the proof of an (AP).

    ‘A non-final conclusion’ in the paper is absolutely correct as it states that todays most active opponents of pseudoscience will manage to switch sides to that moment and take the lead of then recognized (AP) because of privileges bestowed upon them. So the future sciences will occur but when is anybodies guess unless you are the instructor of the programme.

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    so far the test seems to be a success. Congratulations.
    Some questions to the long term test:

    In order to get reliable results conerning durability and reliability it will be necessary to test not only one, but a lot of modules. How many modules will be used in the test?

    How many modules can be controlled by one controller?

    Andrea,

    We are very excited that the 3rd Party tests of the SKL have started and kicked off the march toward commercialization of this most important invention. A few questions about the testing if you will:

    1) Have you known that the 3rd Party testing would require 6-12 months?
    2) I assume the longer (6-12 month) endurance and fuel consumption testing will not commence until the tests move to the alternate location?
    3) Do the current tests at your location include instructing the 3rd Party on SKL operation and control?
    4) Are the tests currently being performed at your location performance-oriented (e.g. electric and thermal output measurement, etc.)?
    5) Have you provided multiple SKLs to the 3rd Party for different types of testing?
    6) What will you and your team be doing during the 3rd-party testing?
    7) Will the certification testing be run concurrent with the third-party testing?

    Thanks,

  54. Brice

    @ Frank Acland:

    The whole LENR-like road from Pons & Fleishmann till the SKL is paved with (huge) unreliabilities and low power output. For the first time the SKL is a device that is probably ready for production. What ‘unreliability’ could mean to the SKL is largely unknow to us. I believe that some cases of unreliability will be largely accepted by many users. I think the most important questions are:

    – can the SKL recover automatically or does it need a service engineer?
    – can a user have some tools/spare parts to repair his/her SKL?
    – what is the average down time / duty cycle…

    An SKL with small output fluctuations won’t be a problem. But other unreliabilities will be perceived in a different way depending on the purpose: home / charging Tesla home batteries at night / car / truck / plane / power plant / use in remote places / hospitals… And if you have five SKLs it probably doesn’t matter so much if one of them is defect.

    In my case I would immediatelly buy an SKL if the reliability is better than 50%, it still has a tremendous value with that power output. I think a poll will be very interesting for Dr. Rossi. We all know that he is a perfectionist and now that he told us that a 3rd party test will take 6 to 12 months, followed by a certification test… And every new iteration of the SKL could add an extra 6 to 12 months delays in starting the production of the SKL. If there is a market for acceptable unreliabilities then Dr. Rossi could be convinced to already start a first production line.

  55. Mark U

    Dear Andrea,

    Your answers of ‘confidential’ to Plasmafan were like mouth watering appetizers for this AR fan. This is because I take them as possible hints that the specific subject matter was indeed of some relative importance to the functioning of the Ecat!

    Some questions about the current testing and also the certification:
    1) Is the third party on the premises where you are, or are they content to dictate the testing procedure and view the results remotely? Or perhaps it is a mixture of both?
    2) I assume that the certification process, which may start next month, is with another E-cat device, not the one under 24/7 testing. Given it is another E-cat device, will it also be an SKL 95-5 version?
    3)If so, have you made it already?
    4)Have you found out efficiencies to somehow reduce the work required to make what was those 10,000 connections? (I hope so!)

    All the best wishes from Canada,
    Mark

    Dr Rossi,
    In your paper
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    is written (quote): ” The fact that nuclear reactions of the type Au197 + N14 -> Au198 + N13 take place at energies at which colliding nuclei do not come in contact is an interesting though little-advertised discovery”.
    Now, since you say the E-Cat has nothing to do with nuclear reactions, why these reactions are relevant to your effect ?

    That reaction is a paradigmatic example of long range interactions, independently from the specific systems in which they happen.

    Dear Andrea, In my previous comment I mentioned the “million mile battery” because no one needs the aggravation and expense of replacing a dead battery so it appears to be a preferred addition for a reliable power source. Since the ecat has no moving parts I expect that it will have a long lifetime and it would not be wise to add components that will diminish that feature.

  63. PlasmaFan

    Dear Andrea,

    I’m excited to hear about the upcoming testing of the E-Cat SKL 95. The truth is that although I expected you to further develop the technology, I did not expect such a high ratio of electrical output to thermal output. Combined with the extremely high COP (allowing for infinite COP in closed loop mode) this truly makes for a revolutionary technology. However, as always, when I hear of such breakthroughs my mind always drifts towards how it is possible to make such an improvement. There is a plethera of information on plasma formations in the scientific literature and I think certain concepts from them may possibly be involved.

    1) Were you able to produce a “dark mode” plasma where the temperature is reduced but the electrical gradients and double layers of the self organizing plasma is still intact? If so, did this help in boosting the electrical efficiency?

    2) Since anything that attracts electrons together may also induce phonon resonance and other conditions that can allow for the formation of cooper pairs (such as the positive ions in a complex space charge double layer), could it be that the phenomenon of superconductivity could be helping produce an efficient collection of electrical current? Nikola Tesla and others working with electrical discharges that would transiently produce self organizing structures have detected a type of strange current that flows through conductors without heating them in the same manner as conventional current.

    3) Did you add a new additive to the gaseous mixture that allowed for the increase in efficiency?

    4) Can you confirm that with the E-Cat SKL 95 that you are still using one cathode and one anode like in the previous plasma based E-Cats? (This is of course not counting any “pick up” electrodes you may be using.)

    5) Have you tried to wirelessly collect energy from the E-Cat SK 95? For example, plasma balls are generators of not only traditional EMF but also longitudinal waves. With a tuned antenna you should be able to pick up these signals.

    6) Is there any chance that you could build a very crude, inefficient model of a plasma based E-Cat for educational purposes? For example, I could imagine a model that could be used in universities to show students how the Rossi Effect can produce excess heat and electrical output. It would not need to be extremely efficient – only enough to show undeniable excess.

    Thank you.

    Dear Andrea,

    Can you confirm that most energy generated by your latest Ecat version is mainly caused by transmutations rather than fusions?

    Rob

    Rob:
    No: I never said that.

    Andrea,

    For your information, the “million mile battery” to which Chuck Davis refers, has to do with its ability to endure enough charge/discharge cycles to allow the vehicle in which it is installed to travel a million miles in its useful life. It does not refer to its range.

    Tesla is hosting a “Battery Day” on the 22nd of this month and is widely expected to announce a “million mile battery” at that time. Of course an SKL powered Tesla would be a much more important announcement. September should be a historic month for Tesla and Leonardo!

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I think your most important achievement is not the Ecat SKL, but the immense mass of R&D that your work unleashed in the world in the field of the LENR and other anomalous energy generation systems. It is unbelievable the attention that has been put on your paper
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    that is the most read physics paper of the last 18 months.
    All the best wishes for the tests you have on course,
    Calvin

    I am very impressed with this publication.

    The author manages to describe incredibly succinctly and comprehensively about what others need a whole series of books.

    This deserves to be read several times. The younger generations, in particular, would benefit greatly from knowing about censorship in science.

  92. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Brice, in a recent comment, has suggested a wide range of possible reliability issues that could affect the SKL. Can you identify which of his concerns are realistic?

    For example, with his point 7(b), I can’t imagine having to take the SKL out of an electric vehicle and shake it as a way to recover from a failure.

    Kind regards,

    Frank Acland

  93. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Brice himself has put a question mark after the 7(b) solution. He made a wide spectrum of possible events that are imaginary, hypothesizing solutions that can be right or wrong. Obviously the situations that will emerge will have to be resolved on the base of the specific parameters. He just wanted to warn about possible situations, not fix solutions, just making hypothesis. The hypothesis all have dignity of attention.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  94. Chuck Davis

    Dear Andrea, If the reliability issue involves unscheduled shutdown of the reaction there are many applications where this issue could be resolved with a combination of Tesla’s million mile battery and the ecat where the battery size would be a function of the applicable load and the worst case duration of a shutdown. In this scenario the battery serves as a buffer which would supply the necessary power while the reaction resumes operation. I feel confident that all of the readers are on the edge of their seats in anticipation of the upcoming tests as I am!

    Warm regards,
    Chuck Davis

  95. Andrea Rossi

    Chuck Davis:
    Thank you for the suggestion, but such battery does not exist, as far as I am aware of.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  96. Dear Andrea:

    Regarding safety issues, including the possible emission of dangerous ‘radiations’ – strange or otherwise – perhaps you need to set up some mice, and perhaps rats too, very close to one of your units in operation. You would also have carefully randomized control groups, located a considerable distance from your operations. The purpose, of course, would be to see if the animals very close to your apparatus suffer any negative consequences. (Who knows? It might turn out that the animals closest to your E-cat live forever, although that does not seem likely!)

    And the experiment should go on through at least two more generations to make sure there are no negative effects that only show up much later. I suggest the latter because I believe historical Swedish data appear to prove that acute starvation of human teenagers results in very long lifespans in their grandchildren. So there can be delayed effects.

    For what it is worth.

    With my kindest anticipatory regards,

    Rodney.

  100. MIKE PHALEN

    Hi Dr. Rossi,

    I have two questions.

    1. To clarify your answer to Tom Conover on Sept 7. You said the testing certification will be global. Does that mean:

    a. This certification will allow you to sell home units in the US?

    b. Home units in the US will require additional safety certification tests before they can be sold.

    2. If everything goes as you have planned, when do you expect to have a mass production E-cat prototype in operation?
    a Six months or less
    b 12 months or less
    c 18 months or less

  101. Andrea Rossi

    MIKE PHALEN:
    I am not able to answer now to your intelligent, but premature questions,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  102. Brice

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    I personally think that the interest in the SKL will be enormous even when the reliability is not guaranteed for 100% of the time. When an electric car can extend its range virtually limitless in even less than 80% of the cases, I think that many people, certainly early adopters, will still be very happy to have such a great opportunity. But it will depend on what ‘reliability’ means here. Here in case of an electric car what are the possible reliability issues of the SKL:
    1. The skl needs some restarts and gives you a small delay (like starting a car in winter time).
    2. There are some small fluctuations of energy output, which you are not aware of while driving a car with some lithium batteries.
    3. The user is often hindered by short periods of SKL hiccup/stuttering.
    4. Overheating issue: wait some time till the SKL has cooled down.
    5. The SKL can’t recover immediately but it can within a reasonable time: 5 – 60 minutes (a period that can be bridged by the ‘back-up’ lithium batteries).
    6. The SKL can fail but will always recover automatically.
    7. The user can always intervene by:
    a. changing the fuel
    b. shaking the fuel or the SKL(?).
    c. changing the electronics
    d. adding hydrogen
    e. other
    8. The user needs to connect the SKL to the internet, a service engineer will analyse and solve the problem.
    9. The SKL needs to be brought in to a reparation centre.

    I think that early-adopters are much more interested in a fast market introduction than in high reliability. You – or Frank Acland(Frank…?) – could organise a poll to know if people can deal with different reliability issues.

    Thank you for your reply!

    Brice

  103. Andrea Rossi

    Brice:
    Thank you for your suggestions.
    I agree.

  104. Ivan Samec

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    A year ago, I met entrepreneurs in the solar business. They told me that they were able to achieve a cost of sub $1,000 per 1 kW of installed capacity.

    Currently, our government and the concrete lobby are pushing forward a pointless project of a new nuclear power plant, where the cost (planned) is over $5,000 per 1 kW of installed capacity.

    My question: Now that your newest control module is 40 times larger (and probably more expensive) than your 2 month old control module, can the newest version of E-Cat SKL compete with the system price per 1 kW (of installed capacity) of solar installations?

    With Best Regards Ivan Samec

  105. Andrea Rossi

    Ivan Samec:
    I think so.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  106. Bill Conley

    Andrea,

    With the advent of testing for the 95:5 SKL and subsequent introduction to the world, I have been thinking about various applications for your tremendous innovation. In this context, I wondered how much noise the SKL generates when in operation. Could you address this, both with and without the cooling system.

    Best wishes on the eminent third-party tests. If you can at least confirm when they are underway, many who follow your progress would be grateful.

    Thanks,

    Bill

  107. Andrea Rossi

    Bill Conley:
    The Ecat SKL is noiseless.
    Thank you for your kind wishes,
    Warm Regards,

  108. WaltC

    Dr Rossi,
    You mentioned “price and sustainability” as two things which will give you competitiveness vs. existing technologies. Those are key but don’t forget also “portability and energy density”. Those are areas that can warrant a higher price premium because portable and energy dense fuels are more costly and need frequent refilling (gasoline, diesel, propane, …).

    Example applications would be things like transportation, off-grid power/heat, and portable/emergency power generation.

  109. Andrea Rossi

    WaltC:
    I agree,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  110. KeithT

    Dear Andrea,

    Hopefully the certification of any forthcoming safety tests will in time allow for robustly designed mobile / portable E-Cat power pack products, either built into new tools / equipment or capable of charging existing portable battery powered tools or plugging older power tools / equipment directly into. If limits have to be applied, E-Cat power packs possibly limited to human controlled / motivated / carried traveling at up to 1.0 metre/second while operating.

    The uses for small kW, mobile power packs for portable tools / equipment are extensive, especially if existing older power tools / equipment can be just plugged in, for domestic use in and around the house, household maintenance and gardening, for commercial use in factories, retail units and on building sites, isolated domestic or commercial premises, in and around farm buildings and fields, isolated cultivated small holdings, forestry, and maybe offshore fishing or fish farming. The possible market is extremely large.

    Over the years, peoples imagination of what can be achieved has often foundered on what was possible with available power sources, I think we are now headed towards a time of rapid innovation, portability of equipment that is currently fixed, smaller more compact equipment, equipment that currently has a short duration of operation, specialist equipment becoming smaller, lower cost to buy and operate, and widely available.

    With low cost high density portable power sources there will be greater scope for a higher standard of living outside of the main industrialised population centres.

    Regards,

    Keith Thomson.

    KeithT:
    Thank you for your insight,

  112. Dear Andrea,

    Once the E-cat has been 3rd party validated and with that “going public” there will be questions from common people where the energy comes from. Surely Low Energy Nuclear Reactions, or Cold Fusion or Dark Energy or Vacuum Energy or Zero Point Energy, means nothing. Media, who probably will not understand the E-Cat technology, may laugh giving it negative publicity. Worst regard it as scam. Do you have a description ready for how to explain the E-cat energy so that the E-Cat will be taken seriously by common people?

    West wishes for this very exiting month.

  113. Andrea Rossi

    Calle H:
    When you have a product that makes cheaper and cleaner energy I do not think the market will give any damn about how it works, provided its safety is certified.

    Dear Andrea,

    Within the E-Cat SKL assembly are there any moving parts?

    Will the first products require the current design to be re-engineered and developed to withstand rough handling or dropping on the floor during say installation prior to operation?

    Will it take extensive re-engineering and development to make an E-Cat SKL product sufficiently robust to withstand high G forces while in operation and mobile, i.e. say vehicle rapid acceleration, deceleration and change of axis orientation in a tight corner?

    If the upcoming safety test is performed on a stationary device, will the certification state that it is only valid for a stationary device?

    Dear Andrea,

    i am looking forward to your presentation in the near future. However I am still puzzled by the reason you are so kind as to give us, the general public, a look into your discoveries and development unless you think we can contribute some possible insight from your disclosures.
    The only other reason I can think of is that you are looking for venture capital, but you should be able to get all you need from the sources you are presently working with. I can understand that these sources would like you to keep all relevant information under ND policy to protect their interests.
    No matter what the outcome of your program, for me it has been a interesting and pleasurable trip during my retirement period and has forced me to think and review all my past experiences with scientific inquiry.

    Dr Rossi:
    Which relationship is there between the electromagnetic waves described in 1865 by Maxwell in his paper “Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field” and the Clifford algebra ?

  135. Andrea Rossi

    Norma:
    Maxwell equations can be reinterpreted by the Clifford algebra using the “electromagnetic four potential”, which synthesizes all the conceptual entities in the Maxwell equations in a common origin. This way, it is assumed a function that links a vector of four components to each point of the space-time as the UNIQUE source of Maxwell’s equations entities.

  136. Stephen

    Dear Andrea

    I understand that there are at least 2 tests In the pipeline:

    1. A characterization and performance test by a potential customer. That we will not have details about.

    2. Certification test which I suppose will certify
    A) it’s safety
    B) it’s applicability
    C) it’s reliability.

    Is this correct in each case?

    3. In the test case 1. Will we hear any basic results of that test above whether it was successful or not?

    4. In the test case 2. Will that certification include performance information such as reliability at full out put power etc?

    5. Will there additional third party tests going forward I. The near future from other customers or independent test groups and can you say in what time frame?

    6. In the case that test the performance of first test on the the e-cat SKL is not to be made visible. Would one of the other testing bodies likely make these test results public?

    7. I suppose you might want to present this information in your public demonstration though.

    Anyway it sound like it is progressing. This is a big break through given the restrictions that everyone has been under these last months due to Covid.

    All the best for these important tests.

    “Brief Review of Alternative Physics- An alternative Opinion on Physics”,
    by Dr Aleksey Savchenko, A.A. Bochvar Institute of Inorganic Materials, Moscow, Russia

  138. Mason

    Good Day Andrea,

    In your exchange this morning with Brice, you affirm an important shift in the testing schedule: the inclusion of a 3rd-party testing of the SKL for a potential future business partner prior to the already described 3rd-party certification testing. This opens the door to several questions that I hope you are able to respond to.
    1. Will this next 3rd-party test be on the 80:20% or the 95:5% SKL with a power rating of 5kW? Or, the 20kW SKL?
    2. Will this next 3rd-party testing be “short” or “long”, for example, less than a week in duration or 2x-4x that duration?
    3. Will you be present for this 3rd-party testing strictly as an advisor, and to ensure the security of the SKL?
    4. Has the certification 3rd-party testing been scheduled? If yes, can you share for which of the upcoming months?
    5. Is the certification 3rd-party testing still meant to provide certification for household use as previously stated? Or, has it been scaled back to only industrial use?
    6. Has it been determined which version of the SKL will be certified? The 80:20%? The 95:5%? The 5kW or 20kW?
    7. Do you still hope to present and demonstrate the SKL in Stockholm this year to the public and world press?

    Best of luck for this pending 3rd-party testing, though as an optimist I am not inclined to think it is needed, only wanted.

    As always, my best to you, to Team Rossi, and to your wife.

    Sincerely and Respectfully,
    Mason

    Dear Andrea,
    Very exciting end to 2020 coming up, it seems, for you.
    Regarding the certification agency, will it just certify the safety of the device, or will it certify the power input/output of the device, or something else?

    Dear Andrea,

    Let me see if I understand correctly:

    1. The test scheduled for September is with a third party which is a potential business partner, not an independent certification agency.

    2. Another test will be done by an independent certification agency.

    3. Will this second test be done also in September?

    4. Will the results of both tests be made public?

    5. Do you still expect a public presentation will be made this year?

    Kind regards,

    Dear Andrea,

    Recently you mentioned a paper by Hanno Essen; within this paper he indicates that correlated coherent electrons are important in superconductivity. As within the E-Cat SKL there is a condition created where electrons are; axis aligned, spins orientated in the same direction and with charge orbits in phase, is formation of a coherent superconductive state possible?

    Dear Andrea.

    “Momentum-exchange current drive by electrostatic waves in an unmagnetized collisionless plasma”
    ABSTRACT:
    “For a planar electrostatic wave interacting with a single species in a collisionless plasma, momentum conservation implies current conservation. However, when multiple species interact with the wave, they can exchange momentum, leading to current drive. A simple, general formula for this driven current is derived. As examples, we show how currents can be driven for Langmuir waves in electron–positron–ion plasmas, and for ion-acoustic waves in electron–ion plasmas.”

  157. Dear Dr. Rossi,

    To summarize the output of the Rossi Effect, recent comments on your blog suggest that the quality of the plasma produced by the E-Cat devices sets your invention apart from LENR/”Cold Fusion” devices that demonstrate excess heat primarily?

    Would you be comfortable with the following description, or requiring additional/different elements?

    Rossi Effect output = sustained high energy plasma in the form of knotted skyrmions from dense electron clusters.

    Happy Labor Day weekend.
    Wishing you the best of luck and a positive result from the independent testing in September.

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    In your paper, http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions, you describe possible phenomena which together form your “Rossi Effect”.

    1. Are these phenomena:
    a. Each distinct and separate, but combine together in a synergy to produce the over-all Rossi Effect?
    b. All required together in specific proportions to be effective?
    c. You are still not totally sure, and are continuing to work to deduce exactly how much the different phenomena each contribute towards the Rossi Effect?

    2. In Figure 1: “Trends of Casimir, Coulomb and magnetic forces as a function of distance”, you show, and then explain the calculations of, the two separate values of “Distance as number of reduced Compton wavelengths” at which the Magnetic force and the Casimir force each balance the Coulomb repulsion.

    Does having these two distinct balance points at different positions on the Coulomb repulsion plot imply that different frequency external signals (or signal components) are required to bring each of the Magnetic and Casimir forces to their individual balance points with the Coulomb repulsion?

    Thank you again, if you can answer these questions.

    I wish you all success in the third party test, and I am looking forward to watching your virtual presentation of the Ecat SKL.

    Best Regards,
    Martyn Aubrey

  174. Andrea Rossi

    Martyn Aubrey:
    1a. yes
    1b. yes
    2. no: the comparision of the Casimir force with the Coulomb repulsion force have independent trends from the comparision between the magnetic forces and the Coulombian repulsion force, as you can see in Fig. 1 of paragraph 1 of the paper you cited, where are reported the trends of Casimir, Coulomb and magnetic forces as a function of distance.

    Dear Eernie1,

    Thank you for your kind response. Civilized people never need to excuse themselves for humor. On the contrary…
    Where perception and measurability cease, fantasy or clairvoyance will necessarily take over.

    I just wanted to represent the concept idea of interference of the dimensions perceptible to us with other, discontinuous dimensions, with discontinuity in all kinds of variations.
    The question is whether humans and mankind can ever understand and do something with such a discontinuous system.

    Curious greetings,

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    An electric car that catches fire is a huge thread because the fire can’t be extinguished, the whole car must be put in a container filled with water! https://www.thedrive.com/news/28420/parked-teslas-keep-catching-on-fire-randomly-and-theres-no-recall-in-sight

    This is also true for the few electric aeroplanes which already exist. An important disadvantage of electric aeroplanes is besides its very short flight autonomy that the weight of a full or an empty battery keeps the same (while an aeroplane with kerosine weighs much less at the end of its flight). So, I believe we need to get rid of lithium batteries, I believe that a few SKL-reactors, improving safety, are the right solution. They’ll make transportation much safer, they’ll diminish the risks of a huge fire (less heat needs to be dissipated or can be located away from the batteries) and they make cars and aeroplanes much lighter, thus safer again! And be aware that a car that weighs much less thanks to some SKL-reactors will increase action radius and acceleration power of cars and planes (shorter runways).

    Some people on some forums mention that there might pose a risk of what they call ‘strange radiation’. Is this possible?

    Success with the third party testing!!!

    Brice

  183. Andrea Rossi

    Brice:
    I studied carefully the work of Dr Parkhomov about the “strange radiations” that I decided to take care of seriously and we made the same measurements he published to check if we have any similar result. We did not have any strange radiation, and it is to us obvious because of the structure of the Ecat SKL. We will be able to give a certification that the Ecat SKL does not emit any kind of known noxious radiation.
    Thank you for your insight.

    Dear Andrea

    Do your recent comments saying that ECAT SKL is not readily suitable for use in aircraft mean that there are one or more issues with its crashworthiness?

    Is this a reason for your focus on stationary uses initially?

    I thank you and all the commenters (eernie1, Koen, physicist et al.) for your recent exchanges. The many viewpoints expressed are beneficial towards developing an understanding of what is an electron

  186. Dear Andrea,
    When a normal airplane crashes, the worst-case scenario is that the entire load of its fuel (kerosene) catches fire and burns in a big firestorm. I would be surprised if the E-cat can behave worse than that.

    Similar consideration applies to cars (tank full of gasoline, versus the E-cat). Any vehicle can crash, so the worst-case scenario is always a relevant question. Airplanes crash less frequently than cars, but both do crash.

    That said, my advice to you, if any, is to concentrate on the E-cat itself. Others will find proper applications for it, once you start selling them, with whatever conditions you choose to do it. Intel makes processors and Microsoft makes software that runs on them. Intel does not care so much what Microsoft and its users do. You are the most upstream producer in energy world, like Intel is in the world of IT.

    Dear Andrea, There are plane parachutes available for small planes that would make it possible to integrate ecat propulsion. In the event of propulsion failure the parachute will permit safe landing and failure analysis to determine the exact cause of failure. This configuration will provide a safe configuration to enable the early integration of aeronautic ecat propulsion. Somebody said, “Where there is a will there is a way”!

  190. Dear Andrea,
    When I submitted my description of the Caesium discharge lamp I assembled back in the 1960s, the outer chamber was a material opaque to all visible photons except infra red. I therefore could not visualize the interior. But discovering the unexpected large amount of infra red when the plasma was subjected to a high wattage pulse of RF would make me believe a similar column, to your device, of visible energy was present.
    All the other criteria for producing excess energy was possibly provided by the free electrons donated by the low ionization potential of the Caesium atom, with the RF pulse somehow concentrating the free electrons into a reaction volume.
    Looking at the dancing column of visible photons when you presented your program in 2019, also indicated to me that other similarities between my lamp and your device were possible.
    I look forward to your next presentation with the hope that it will provide more hints about the physical functions of the device.
    Discovery regards.

    Dear Andrea,

    As ardent followers and supporters of your and your team’s amazing contribution for the answers to our planet’s and societies challenges; to be honest, everyone enjoys some competition to maintain minimal costs and demands. Here is what may be your closest contender, out of several, to date:

    “Self-Charging Nano-Diamond Batteries” That Can Run an Electric Car For 90 Years? https://medium.com/@glennrocess/self-charging-nano-diamond-batteries-that-can-run-an-electric-car-for-90-years-57b0a9aa803a
    Note the negative reference to Cold Fusion.

    My question (if not premature) is, does Leonardo Corp and its partners have contingent business plans in place to meet or exceed consumer requirements if such advance technology soon exists?
    Here are some to consider: (pricing, power density and response, manufacturing production demands, cost and ease of fuel/replacement, public safety, reliability, domestic installation, adaptability to devices, climate locations including space, price for the less advantaged ….). Any reply would be appreciated.

    How is the testing of the latest version going?

  196. Stephen

    Dear Andrea

    I know at the moment you are stating grounded with your think for e-cat SKL.

    And think it’s good to take that approach. When we first get on a horse it’s best to first walk or trot rather than cubit a good kick and go straight to a flat out gallop!

    I couldn’t help finding this article interesting though. I guess Pekka will find it particularly I intriguing like me. it’s years away so maybe by then e-cat SKL will be a good match as the required electrical energy source.

    But the main reason I include it is as because the science of the effect is so interesting. It might be interesting to people here or on your team who are interested in the physics.

    I hope things are going well for the plans this September. Is it still looking good for achieving the third party test in this time frame and the concerns here about Covid are not getting too serious. Obviously safety needs to take precedence.

    Good luck with all

    Stephen.

    Dear Andrea,

    I don’t understand why you are so reserved about the use of the E-Cat SKL in aircraft. In an airplane with a battery, you can of course charge it with the E-Cat SKL during the flight to extend the range. What would be more dangerous about it than flying without the E-Cat SKL? Of course, flight operations should always be designed so that you can land safely with the remaining charge in the battery.

    OK, nobody have to expect that you have flight operations in focus from the start, but if you deliver the E-Cat SKL as a module, others could take care of certification for flight operations.

    Best wishes

  203. Dear Koen Vanderwalle,
    If you will pardon a little bit of humor, I think your model has a lot of holes in it.
    We are all hindered by the lack of capability to prove our models because of the difficulty to verify necessary facts about this subject, due to the inherent nature of it’s physical form, which we cannot absolutely measure.
    Your model is as good as any other because of this factor. Until science is capable of providing these measurements we all are in a sense compiling possible models based on our past observations of physical properties. If a device can be absolutely confirmed to be undeniably providing the energy gain, more effort would be expended in obtaining the underlying physics.
    Keep up your thinking, we all can use different views of this intriguing question.
    Hopeful regards.

  204. Dear Andrea,
    I forgot to mention another possible conversion of space potential energy. That is the existence of lightning fire balls. This observed phenomenon occurs after a large lightning bolt is observed with the subsequent appearance of a highly luminescent ball which travels through space for a significant time before it disappears.
    In my view this ball consists of energy created by the high density of free electrons existent in the lightning bolt which subsequently creates more energy conversion as the concentrated electrons travel towards a grounding source.
    The lightning bolt is a duplicate of your device created by nature.
    Striking regards.

  205. Andrea Rossi

    Thank you for your insight, I think also the light ball you see on the video

    Dear Eernie1

    The nicest thing I had forgotten was: Gravity fits perfectly in this model, because it is the sum of all fluid that disappears in the collective of holes in a certain region with a lot of matter.

    Interested greetings,
    Koen

  211. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Eernie1

    I read your comments and suggestions regarding the zero point energy with great interest.

    For the construction of the universe, I make the visual comparison with an inelastic fluid that disappears in miniscule holes.
    As it were, the reverse effect of your reasoning. These tiny holes then create all kinds of eddies and vortices that eventually form loops that whirl and shake.
    A large bathtub from which you suck water with a vacuum pump, and where cavitation vortices are formed. These vortices are like snakes that eat their own tail.
    Broadly speaking, you end up with three types of vortex, where two forms of “three-loop knots” and a “ring” are possible. Because each knot and ring is attached to its own miniature black hole, they cannot merge, but they can still be linked with their vortices and twists.
    Rings can get bigger or smaller. The “loops of the knots” can also become larger or smaller.
    In this way, all these small eddies form clusters that we call matter, but actually they are more moving cavities in the sea of ​​incompressible fluid.
    Now you can make those vortices move very quickly, decreasing their efficiency in resisting the disappearance of the fluid (in their own black hole), thereby having a greater influence on the vortices in their environment.
    They then operate like a mini-turbine that draws energy from the flow of the disappearing fluid in the black hole they are attached to.
    Any form of vortex instability causes more fluid to disappear into each hole, each turbine to gain energy, thus creating additional energy visible to us.
    Comparisons of this kind make it all very difficult to write this down in formulas and absolute statements, because it all gives interactions of highly mobile matter that interacts with other highly mobile matter and changes through the interaction itself into several of the derived and integrated functions .

    When Archimedes drained his bath, and saw the whirlpool at the drain, he must have also thought that he should stick to concepts he could explain.

    Interested greetings,
    Koen

  212. Dear Andrea.
    What I call dark energy is better described as potential EM energy, and is what remains from the initial large amount of potential energy that existed before the conversion into the particles that constitute our material universe. There is a substantial amount of potential energy remaining in our space vacuum and possibly available as useful energy if we can convert it.
    I think you are tapping into this source by creating a dense volume of free electrons in a confined space which provide energetic spinning magnetic fields that interact with the potential EM fields remaining in the space of your device thereby converting the potential energy into usable energy.
    Other methods could be the use of the electron in transition metals which contain highly volatile electrons which can be manipulated by external sources. Or electrons that can be manipulated by electro chemical means as done by the early experimenters.
    Good luck regards.

    Dear Andrea,

    A person can only build a vision based on what he knows. One additional piece of information may create the need to turn 180 °. To war, or not to war? That’s the question!

    I know your view of open source, and I think at least all of your competitors and opponents share your strategic choices and are well prepared for them.

    Wellington knew very well that his troops were no match for the cannons of Napoleon’s army, and that he had no chance in Waterloo. Until he came up with the bright idea of ​​using that silly asymmetrical fold in the landscape to deploy his troops. All the cannonballs just flew over it, regaining the classic number strength and classic combat tactics that the amateur and folk army could not win against.

    What surprises me in a negative sense throughout history is that people are still throwing away plenty of subsidy money to build gigantic wind farms. It must be that a lot of people at a higher level do not do their homework, which gives me the impression that it will not have to come through the people at a higher level.

    Not to mention I am very curious about the further rollout of your plans, and I will be on the first line to implement it. Good luck and a big thank you for the tremendous achievements that you and your team have achieved with the potential to make a thriving world possible for our children and all subsequent generations.

    I have no doubt that you will succeed, but it would be more fun if your invention causes a second spectacular “big bang”, rather than a gradual introduction to the market of purely industrial applications.

    You deserve something with spectacle and recognition.

Noi avremmo la precedenza per l’acquisizione degli E-CAT da 4kWh/h di energia elettrica e 1 kWh/h di energia termica ? Ti prego di spedirmene almeno uno il prima possibile ! Cordiali Saluti. giannino
    ENGLISH SYNOPSIS
    In your answer to Frank Acland you said you found the way to start sales: please do not forget all the persons that, like me, pre-ordered the Ecat

  223. Andrea Rossi

    Giannino Lodovico Ferro Casagrande:
    I will forget nobody, but I did not say that I already found a marketing solution, I said we are working on it, and that probably we got a good idea.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    Someone just asked you about your jet engine project. I found this article today and hoped it might be of interest and use to you.

    Jet propulsion by microwave air plasma in the atmosphere.
    AIP Advances 10, 055002 (2020);
    https://aip.scitation.org/doi/full/10.1063/5.0005814

    If only someone had a source of electricity that could supply such a machine…

    Ronald Stringer:
    Thank you for the information,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  226. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Andrea,
    For what it’s worth: why not throw the first or second generation E-Cat into the world via open source, which was already semi-publicly demonstrated in 2011?
    And, for example, offer schools a working model (with repair kit or reloading kit)?
    New minds must be shown the right path in time.

    That’s a business model that has already been proven when it comes to intellectual products.

    With best regards,
    Koen

  227. Andrea Rossi

    Koen Vandewalle:
    open source would be the end of all. I explained many times why.
    Warm Regards,

  228. Dear Andrea,
    I noticed that a number of people are puzzled by the values given by theories about ZPE. The values vary from 10 t0 the power of 113 joules/cm and 10 to the power of -9 joules/cm. Both of these values in my opinion can be correct if we assume that space consists of potential EM energy of the larger value when undisturbed, and of the smaller number when converted to energy which forms and is stored in our material universe.
    The smaller number comes from measuring the Casimir force within the depleted residual space energy. The larger from the cosmological constant of Einstein. However I think the lower value is too small because the rest of the energy cannot be measured since it is still potential energy.
    We need to find a way to measure this potential dark energy.
    Good hunting regards.

  229. Andrea Rossi

    Eernie1:
    I am not sure the dark energy exists. What you write is interesting, though.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  230. Chuck Davis

    Dear Andrea, I believe that those Countries that are not part of the oil mafia will be more receptive to the ecat and after deliveries increase in those countries and with the widespread publicity that follows the pressure to convert to ecats in the oil producing countries will become so great that they will no longer be able to resist! This year will mark the beginning of “The Rossi ERA”! A salute to Andrea Rossi, a REAL superhero!

    Warm regards’
    Chuck Davis

    Chuck Davis:
    You are very kind, but we will proceed more realistically: humble, but aiming to a proliferation strong and safe. We got some good ideas.
    Let alone heores, we are strong workers, not heroes.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  232. Alessandro Coppi

    With regard to get fast expansion and the due power of fire on planetary scale, I see the model of business already operative by Elon Musk as the better as possible.
    The mobility area covered by Tesla, the space enterprise covered by Space x, Internet area covered by Star Link, artificial intelligence area covered by Neuralink.
    How good would be to add energy area covered by “Power Link” operated by E-CAT SKL controlled throug StarLink?
    Such a scenario is quite disturbing, concentrating such a control power over the mankind, in a single man, but as way to go would be perfect.

    Linked regards
    Alessandro Coppi

  233. Andrea Rossi

    Alessandro Coppi:
    Thank you for the suggestion,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  234. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Is your overall business plan for commercialization of the E-Cat SKL decided upon yet? Or is it still under development?

    Kind regards,

    Frank Acland

  235. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    We are thinking and brainstorming on this issue. I think we found the way that will allow us a fast expansion and the due power of fire on planetary scale.
    We’ll see,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  236. Marcus

    @Patrick
    Don’t forget Dr.Rossi is selling already since one year HEAT. There is a steady income.
    Rossi, am I correct ?

  237. Andrea Rossi

    Marcus:
    Patrick was referring to a completely different issue, which is the sale of the Ecats.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  238. Svein H. Vormedal

    Dear Andrea
    First, congratulations on the most recent results achieved.
    I have 4 questions:
    1. Is it possible for the latest edition to deliver stepless, the desired amount of power from 100% and down to 0%? or to witch lowest limit?
    2. Is the electrical efficiency maintained at downregulated power?
    3. Is the stability of the latest edition equal to ecat SK, or better / worse?
    4. At a down-regulated capacity, will the charge life be correspondingly longer?
    Regards: Svein Henrik

  239. Andrea Rossi

    Svein H. Vormedal:
    1- yes
    2- yes
    3- still working upon this issue
    4- yes
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    Do you still think that the Ecat SKL will be presented within this year ?

    Dear Andrea,

    I would hope to be wrong, but I fear that the largest obstacles to a full rollout of E-Cat’s will be regulatory and political.

    It is likely that nuclear regulatory authorities will seek to gain authority over the E-Cat’s, even if the E-Cat technology falls outside existing regulations and is proven by multiple testing to be completely safe (the authorities will become obsolete if they do nothing). As the E-Cat technology involves energy production at the scale of atoms and electrons the authorities will declare that they should be the judges of safety and should be the ones to licence use, they will favour fixed secure installations that can be inspected and regulated. It is possible that academia will also take this position, and research in this new scientific field may be limited to government sanctioned research facilities.

    After proof of existence and as government officials understand the potential for significant advancement in strategic technologies, it is likely that E-Cat technology (and in general all LENR technologies) will be added to the various dual-use goods lists in existence i.e. in the USA this would be the Commerce Control List within the Export Administration Regulations, after this it is likely that export control will be enforced for goods and technology transfer outside of the USA, it is possible that the publication of technology details and the underlying science of the energy source is then restricted.

    Regards,

    Keith Thomson.

  243. Andrea Rossi

    KeithT:
    We do not have nuclear reactions in the Ecat, we never detected ionizing radiations emitted by the Ecat, after thousands of measurements , among which measurements repeatedly made by the Government of Florida and by radiology departments of important universities. Our technology is based on electrons, not on nuclea, as explained in my theoretical paper
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interaction
    About the other issues, I deem them groundless.
    Thank you for your advice.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,

    It seems that now you are shifting your focus more towards your “go to market” approach, and you understandably say that you need money, money, money for the fire power of the first attack to make sure you make the most of the “first mover advantage”.

    What’s the order of magnitude that you think you need committed before launch?

    a. $10,000,000’s
    b. $100,000,000’s
    c. $1,000,000,000’s

    Best regards,
    Patrick

  245. Andrea Rossi

    Patrick:
    I will answer this intelligent question in due time. We are reasoning in this direction.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Andrea,

    If you could please consider another question.

    To date you have been noncommittal as to whether the 3rd Party tests will be conducted on the latest 95% electric SKL or a prior version. Can you give us some sense on how this decision will be made.

    1) Who will make the decision?
    a. You
    b. Third Party
    c. Joint Decision

    2) Is the decision dependent on further in-house testing?
    3) Is demonstrated reliability a factor?
    4) Is a desire to wait to fully develop the maximum electrical percentage possible a factor?

    Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.

    Bill Conley

  247. Andrea Rossi

    Bill Conley:
    1- I will
    2- yes
    3- yes
    4- yes
