    Dear Andrea,

    aside from efficiency values, from economic forecasts and from F9, can you tell us
    about your personal satisfaction as engineer and scientist:

    given =100 the value of your personal satisfaction with the classical
    E-Cat module (1MW plant), what are the values for the standard E-Cat X
    and for the new E-Cat Comple-X respectively? I promise I will not try
    to extrapolate the COP or other numbers

  2. Andrea Rossi

    Orsobubu:
    Very difficult to answer: the 1MW plant is a reality in operation in an industry, while the Xes are R&D.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  3. Jeff

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Comgratulations for your US Patent.
    Anout the E-Cat X: are you working on it with the same team working in the 1MW plant?
    Thanks
    Jeff

  4. Andrea Rossi

    Jeff:
    No.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  5. Dear Andrea,

    Have you tried using your E-Catx to run all the overhead lighting in
    1) your control room?
    2) the 1MW freight container?
    3) the laboratory nearby?

    Thanks as usual for taking the time to reply. We all appreciate hugely your updates/comments.
    Keep well.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Please correct me if I’m wrong, but I am not sure why everyone is so fixated on getting an Ecat-X working off the grid (ultracapacitors, batteries) straight out of the box. There is nothing to stop the user from plugging their Ecat-X into an AC inverter/charger (bought separately) coupled with a rechargeable battery, instead of a regular wall outlet. The Ecat-X won’t “know” whether it’s using grid electricity or power generated by itself and stored in a rechargeable battery. Such an after-market “loop” solution would bypass the need for certification, the only question being whether such a combo is actually safe to run. Do you think it would be safe, or can be made safe with sufficient R&D?

  8. Andrea Rossi

    Aillas:
    I am afraid the certification process does not work that way. The idea to use the E-Cat-X (F9) to recharge batteries is not wrong, this could be one of the many purposes.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  19. Marco

    Dear Andrea,

    is the current status of the ECat X (COP and/or dependability) so advanced, that with an ultracapacitor and/or battery can be put on loop and self sustain and produce energy without external energy, apart the initial?
    If not, are you working toward this goal? And if the answer is yes, are you near this goal? If the answer is not, do you plan to develop the ECat X to be put in loop?

    Regards,
    Marco.

  20. Andrea Rossi

    Marco:
    For certification reasons that is impossible so far, even if theoretically superable.

  23. Mark Saker

    Dear Andrea,

    Would i be in the right vicinity that when you say

    “What I have seen today with my eyes was not expected so soon. ”

    Is it that you have a working prototype of E-cat X which contains >1 reactor and can provide heat + electric +light in the one unit thus fulfilling your idea of replacing street lights??

  24. Andrea Rossi

    Mark Saker:
    We all will see, F9.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  25. Michael S

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    According to what you have posted here recently your security threat has heightened. Personally I am not astonished. When people are ready to bomb civilians and send thousands into jail, they will certainly attempt to suppress a threat to their/their countries main resource. As you know ensuring 100% personal safety even of the US President is not possible.

    But now contrary to my message from two or three years ago, your situation is totally changed: you have patents to protect your IP !

    So maybe you could (and should) now change tactics and disclose fully your IP (I mean everything that allows full replication enabeling KW/MW production of energy) so that :
    1) in developed countries big and small corporations can rapidly reproduce (and therefore confirm), copy, continue to develop, commercialize and enhance ecat technology. And pay the deserved royalties to the inventor and his associates.
    2) in less developed/rogue countries industries would do the same as above BUT will not pay or pay very little royalties. This would be like pharma industry does with anti-Aids triterapy medication or hepatitis C (http://www.nytimes.com/2015/12/16/health/hepatitis-c-treatment-egypt.html?_r=0) : no or very little royalties considering the vital role of the “product” to the country.

    The advantages would be :
    You could continue prime technological development BUT also communicate with all different research groups and governments. You could travel free as a (very) respected man, without safety issues, invited everywhere, meeting the most interesting persons on this planet. Ultimately you would then have much more influence then being a beleaguered owner of a Company trying to build market domination. This ambition, excuse me for being so blunt, is I think very passé, and makes me think of people like Bill Gates in the 80’. You could bypass this step in your career since you have IP protection, and even if only in the US it would mean wealth well beyond your needs.

    You may be bound by contracts with your partners. But ultimately even they could profit from this opening up since your “Group” would keep a big advance in engineering and thus go to market speed. Secondly opening up would allow convincing definitively the main pure players (Powerplant and HVAC equipment industrials). They would immediately start their research and development and would then lobby in favor of the technology each in their country/zone of influence. Being right alone on the other hand trying to convince certification authorities must be very tough….

    Lastly, don’t underestimate the means and determination of powers that would like to shut down LENR. They are desperate (oil price has sunken so much and they definitely don’t want this to last forever), extremely smart, ruthless and vey rich. Think of Ustica, and several other unresolved issues. States & organizations can hide things/facts even when many people are involved, if not for ever, for a very long time. If you have this LENR knowledge you have the ethical responsibility to share it with the human race avoiding any risk of loss of this knowledge.

    With sympathy,

    Michael Schneider

    Ps Obviously you don’t need to publish this but I would appreciate a reaction from your part.

  26. Andrea Rossi

    Michael S.:
    Thank you for your sympathy, insight and suggestions.
    The cases are two: either we will put a product massively in the market, or not.
    If not, the problem does not exist.
    If yes, the problem is automatically resolved.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  27. Sebastian

    Dear Andrea,

    When you say “the E-Cat X made a tremendous step forward a massive production”, do you mean:

    a) progress in the regulatory/legal area?
    b) progress with the E-cat X itself, in the production of electricity (such as better COP)?
    c) progress in the mass production of the E-cat X itself?

  28. Andrea Rossi

    Sebastian:
    b + c
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  29. Janne

    Dear Andrea,

    You speak of a ‘loophole’ and ‘a step toward massive production’. I assume these are the one and the same. Is the advancement technological or business/regulatory in nature?

    Mr. Rossi

    I hope that you are well . When you talk about a “massive production” do you mean the quantity of electricity or quantity of units?

    Thank you for taking the time to answer my question.

  32. Andrea Rossi

    Fyodor:
    Quantity of units, from which quantity of electricity.
    Warm Regards,

  33. Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, you have written “… the E-Cat X made a tremendous step forward a massive production…” and this is really a very big news.
    Your happiness is the same of all your supporters.
    And what about certifications? Are they ready to let you put E-Cats X in the market?
    Bets Regards,

    Dear Andrea,
    First off all, very nice pictures in the top of the pages.
    You just said the E-Cat X made a tremendous step forward!
    What does it mean, are you near to reveal some number?
    We can’t wait any more.
    Regards, Giuseppe

  36. Andrea Rossi

    Giuseppe:
    Today we had a very good step forward that makes me hope to give soon not just more data, but information about the massive production of the Ecat X.
    What I have seen today with my eyes was not expected so soon. We got some exponential.
    Warm Regards

  47. Rip Van Winkle

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,

    I have followed the progress of your invention for several years. I think it is remarkable (F9), and can be a force for liberation of mankind.

    If you ever have a tedious time, I would like to recommend this delightful board game: https://ordoabchaogame.wordpress.com/

    The game is free of charge and can be played by a single player and up to twelve players can participate. You create the game by downloading some .docx files and print them on paper.

    The game is on a very unrelated topic compared to the ECat. But sometimes mixing different ideas can generate the greatest insights.

    Faithfully yours

  55. Andrea and Tom Conover, I agree. In fact, I brought up the topic of replacing open fire in my book on Rossi and the E-Cat, An Impossible Invention:

    “As a source of heat, merely replacing fire, it could provide significant benefits. According to the WHO, three billion people use open fires and leaky stoves for cooking and heating, daily. Over one million people die each year from the lung disease COPD, acquired from breathing polluted indoor air, while almost half of all deaths from pneumonia among children under five is also due to the poor air where fires burn indoors. Moreover, collecting firewood takes a lot of time from women and children, reducing their ability to perform other productive work and go to school. A clean, new heat source, free of radioactivity and emissions, can potentially address this problem, equally applicable to any other heating method.”

    Household air pollution and health
    Fact sheet N°292
    Updated February 2016

    Key facts
    Around 3 billion people cook and heat their homes using open fires and simple stoves burning biomass (wood, animal dung and crop waste) and coal.
    Over 4 million people die prematurely from illness attributable to the household air pollution from cooking with solid fuels.
    More than 50% of premature deaths due to pneumonia among children under 5 are caused by the particulate matter (soot) inhaled from household air pollution.
    3.8 million premature deaths annually from noncommunicable diseases including stroke, ischaemic heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and lung cancer are attributed to exposure to household air pollution.
    Indoor air pollution and household energy: the forgotten 3 billion

    Around 3 billion people still cook and heat their homes using solid fuels (i.e. wood, crop wastes, charcoal, coal and dung) in open fires and leaky stoves. Most are poor, and live in low- and middle-income countries.

    Such inefficient cooking fuels and technologies produce high levels of household air pollution with a range of health-damaging pollutants, including small soot particles that penetrate deep into the lungs. In poorly ventilated dwellings, indoor smoke can be 100 times higher than acceptable levels for fine particles. Exposure is particularly high among women and young children, who spend the most time near the domestic hearth.

    Impacts on health

    4.3 million people a year die prematurely from illness attributable to the household air pollution caused by the inefficient use of solid fuels (2012 data) for cooking. Among these deaths:

    12% are due to pneumonia
    34% from stroke
    26% from ischaemic heart disease
    22% from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and
    6% from lung cancer.

  58. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    Thank you for your insight.
    As a matter of fact, domestic pollution is remarkably underestimated.

    Dear Andrea,
    While suffering from a flu (don’t fear, it’s not contagious over Internet) I was wondering:
    1. Are you allowed to produce a more than the 1MWday to compensate for (partly) outages?
    2. If so, have you done that?
    3. Now you are approaching the end of the test, stress must be overwhelming for you and your team. How do you deal with it?
    4. A while ago you saw the efficiency decrease of the 1MW plant. You found a method to compensate. Does that still work and can you maintain the efficiency at an acceptable level?
    5. You designed a new Ecat X with a better electrical performance. Is that already in operation?

  70. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    1- no
    2- no
    3- working
    4- yes and yes
    5- yes, in good standing
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  71. Hello.
    Can you make direct current electricity using Photovoltaics that gets light from the ecat-x using a black body like tungsten?
    Thanks, Luca

  79. Pierre Carbonnelle

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    Patents are very important in your project, and it is good news that you have already been granted one. You said earlier that you still have many other pending patent applications : do you expect their approval soon (i.e. in a couple of months) ? If not, can you start selling the ECat without those pending patents ?

    Thanks in advance,
    PC

  80. Andrea Rossi

    Pierre Carbonnelle:
    The US Patent that has been granted to us gives enough protection to our IP.
    Besides, as I already said, I have more than 200 patents pending and in preparation; the pending ones grant anyway a priority date. Among them I am confident that about 140 will be allowed and about 60 will be possibly rejected.

    1- the taxpayer has nothing to complain about, since we did not use money of the taxpayer
    2- hot fusion plants are eating (without heating) tens of billions of the taxpayer since 50 years now, and counting, with no results at all: maybe you could turn your anonymous attention to that kind of fusion
    3- how do I explain? Simple: it is difficult.

    Dear Andrea,

    Do you think your R&D has brought theE-Cat to a point where it can now be safely be used in products that will work reliably? Or is there more R&D needed?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  95. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    R&D will never end, but if the results of the tests on course will be positive we will be ready to work on the preparation of a massive production, I think.
    Nevertheless, we must use caution when we make forecasts.

    Dear ANdrea Rossi,

    I saw this article recently on the Vortex-l website and am trying to read it.

    Perhaps, you may be better able to understand it.

    http://lenr-canr.org/acrobat/BiberianJPjcondensedq.pdf

    Here is the editorial from the Editor in Chief:

    Editorial

    “Volume 18 of the Journal of Condensed Matter Nuclear Science includes only four papers that I believe are important.”

    “In particular, the theoretical paper by Frederic Henry-Couannier shines a new light on Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR) theories. So far, most of the well-known theories are based on quantum mechanics, classical physics or the introduction of new particles. For the first time, Henry-Couannier has developed a theory of Cold Fusion based on an extension of General Relativity. This is an interesting approach, since it is hard to believe that what aims at explaining the Universe can also explain what is happening at the nuclear level. The future will confirm or not the validity of such an approach.”

    Dear Andrea,

    You have mentioned that there have been many repairs required on the 1MW plant over the course of the year so far. This is of course understandable running a machine that has never been built before constantly for a year.

    You have also said that there needs to be a redesign based on things you have learned from this test. Once you have redesigned, do you expect another long-term test, similar to the one you are now doing will have to be done for the next model?

    Many thanks,

  100. Antonio

    Hello Mr. Rossi,
    i have two questions.

    1) it is february now, the test phase of your 1MW plant should be almost over. When do you think it will be done?

    2) what is going to happen, if everything is successfull, soon after the end of the test? Will we get to know who the Costumer is? Will we see new demos? Will other Costumers be able to buy a new plant? What?

    Thank you,
    Antonio

  101. Andrea Rossi

    Antonio:
    1- Still do not know, up to the end. Anything can happen anytime to cause a delay.
    2- If all will go well, we will start the industrialization process. No more demos will be made. Other plants will be sold. I do not know if the Customer will want to expose himself or not and this, obviously, will not depend on me.

    Hi Andrea,

    I always wonder what would possess you to think that Cold Fusion was possible discredited in the mainstream as impossible? What was it you found about the entire idea that clicked in your mind so that you just had to try what seemed to be foolishness. Can you please provide us any insights?

    I suspect you are rarely too far wrong when you get these ideas in your head that you have to work on, but i wonder what about this one made you need to try?

    Thanks
    All the best.

  130. Alex

    Dear Andrea,

    first of all, let me congratulate you and your team on the remarkable and long-expected patent acquisition and rapid progress with E-CATs. And here is my question/opinion.

    It is evident, that you use semiconductor-based elements (diodes, transistors etc) for such important subsystems of E-Cat as control of reactor heating/cooling/heat transfer, power/voltage/current conversion and possibly others. And it is clear that the significant part of such elements works in a harsh environment (high temperatures, pressures, reactive medium etc). With all this in mind – do you use silicon-based elements only? Do you use solutions, based on a wide-bandgap semiconductors (WBG, such as silicon carbide SiC, aluminium and gallium nitrides AlN and GaN, and others)? WBG-solutions can be much more stable/reliable and effective in such conditions than the conventional silicon electronics. It can ensure more stable and effective work of E-Cat as a whole – and this is only thing that we all are wishing!

    Yours Sincerely, Alex

  131. Andrea Rossi

    Thank you for your insight and suggestion.

  149. Andrea,

    Since you have mentioned in the past that, besides being a hard
    working engineer, you are a musician and often find inspiration or
    solutions to problems in dreams… I thought I would share a recent
    dream with you.

    As a music/science person I have always recognized the profound link
    between concepts of music and physics. Everything is related to time,
    frequency, amplitude.

    Something I very much enjoy is teaching piano lessons to young
    students. A fascinating thing about “jazzy” chords that sound so
    soothing, mellow, and beautiful… is that they have very dissonant,
    harsh notes hidden in them. For example, within an F Maj7 chord the
    notes E and F are close together, and like two school boys fighting,
    are harsh and irritating when played by themselves.

    Here’s is an example from physics page:
    http://www.phy.mtu.edu/~suits/beatdemo.mp3 [1]

    Some nice charts here also: http://www.phy.mtu.edu/~suits/beats.html
    [2]

    So, my dream was that I was teaching “Jazzy Chords” and somehow they
    were affecting electrical systems. It was a persistent dream with
    variations (as with music) but I woke up thinking… Hmmm, in an
    LENR device, instead of “tuning” for a perfect sweet spot to excite
    metal lattice structure with electric current, magnetism, radio
    frequency, even acoustic energy… more than one signal, perhaps
    several… would create complex, chaotic “jazzy chords” that might
    better “excite the system”.

    Barbershop quartet singers and listeners often speak of notes (higher
    and lower) that occur because of “interaction among the singers”,
    making a quartet sound like a quintet. The interacting “new note” can
    even be louder/stronger than any of it’s contributing voices.
    Sometimes it is interaction of not the fundamental frequency but the
    “overtones/harmonics”.

    Something to ponder as you “watch your pets” late at night. With your
    stethoscope, you can hear them “sing”.

    Richard J. Pollack

  150. Pierre Carbonnelle

    Dear Mr Rossi,

    Could you tell us how many visitors (people and/or entities) came to see the 1M ECat so far ? From how many countries ? (I suppose they all had non-disclosure agreement)

    Thanks in advance,
    Pierre C.

  151. Gavin

    Dear Andrea Rossi
    Am I wrong or your dream of midnight on the New year’s Eve is getting closer to its realization?
    Godspeed,
    Gavin

  152. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    On the path towards a potential (F9) 50/50 split between electrical and heat output, in these early, preliminary tests does it seem you have made it half way towards that goal?

    Since your fuel is so incredibly cheap (probably a penny per gram in bulk), the truth is that a 1MW plant that only operated for 100 days (not even 400) between refuelings would be an enormous success and economically viable. To produce the same quantity of megawatt hours of power would cost a thousand times more using any conventional fuel. Maybe a kilogram of fuel in the 1MW plant, even after only 100 days, would have produced more energy than 1000 kilograms (or more) of oil or coal. Operating a year between replacing charges simply makes maintenance easier.

    Sincerely,
    Hank

  153. Andrea Rossi

    Hank Mills:
    I am still not able to answer to questions related to the efficiency of the E-Cat X, but I can say that in these very days we are making substantial progress in the field of direct production of electricity.
    This having been said, thank you for your insight, but add F9.

  154. Silvio Caggia

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    Is it a wrong impression or most of e-cat’s problems arise during night times?
    And if it were true… Do you exclude any connection with solar neutrinos flux?

  155. Andrea Rossi

    Silvio Caggia:
    nightime is the 50% of daytime, therefore there are 50% of probability that troubles occur during the night. Moreless I would say this statistic is respected.
    I am pretty sure neutrinos have nothing to do with the E-Cat.

    I’m still very excited about the expectations of the ECat-X. You said that you can adjust her behaviour in order to select how the output is fractioned between heat and electricity. May I ask you some question about that?
    I will assume yes 😉
    1 – How fine the adjustment of that fraction can be done ? (I don’t need numbers that you probably not yet know. It’s enough if you can say that theoretically you can reach a high fine tuning or only a raw approximative adjustment of the fraction heat/electricity)
    2 – When the output is switched to full electricity does it still require a heat dissipation system ?
    3 – Is the light emission you reported due to the incandescence of the core ?
    4 – You said that ECat-X SSM is in the order of hours. Is the SSM also present when she’s producing electricity ? This would mean it’s a device that produce hours of electricity without any input and any storage. It sound too good to be true.
    5 – Please please please hurry up with the processing of the results of the 1 year test. My wait muscle is its end :)

    God bless you

    Marco Serra:
    I cannot give this information yet, since we are still in a preliminar tests phase.
    We still do not know if this will become a product, let alone how it will be.
    This kind of information will be possible only at the eve of the launch of the product, but right now all I can say is:
    F9 = the final results could be either positive or negative and for the domestic unit there are still issues related to the certification.
    Warm Regards,

    1 MW E-Cat stable
    E-Cat X: 2 in good standing, one destroyed leaving enormous information about the production of electric power.
    Warm Regards,

  180. Andrea Rossi

    Kevin Evans:
    You asked me, by a comment I have not been able to recover, if the fact that the charges of the 1 MW E-Cat had a lifespan of almost one year now makes our expectation of charges lifespan of one year also for the next E-Cats we’ll produce, either industrial or domestic.
    The answer is yes, probably, F9.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  181. Andrea Rossi

    Dr Joseph Fine:
    I hope that what you are proposing will be possible. Theoretically it could be, but we have to experiment it. F9.

  182. Joseph Fine

    Dear Andrea:

    Can multiple E-Cat X’s be configured such that the electrical output from one E-Cat X can ‘drive’ (via thermal heating) one or more second-level E-Cat X’s? That is, if you can generate enough electricity from one E-Cat X to drive two (or more) second-level E-Cat X’s, could this concept be extended so that enough electricity can be generated from two second-level E-Cat X’s to drive four (or more) third level E-Cat X’s. Et cetera?

    I am NOT suggesting a 64-level system!

    If possible, could there be a multiple-level system design (in which E-Cat X systems can be “switched-into or out-from”) that is both productive and robust to outages/down time?

    For example, first-level systems could be changed in/out as required since a first level system/systems would be the major input(s) to this entire concept.

    ( Maybe systems in SSM could be switched into the first level systems, to minimize total input power demand. )

    The idea is that with limited external electrical power, a multi-level system could reliably and flexibly produce electricity and/or heat as required.

    Powerful regards,

    Joseph Fine

    1 – replacement of parts of the plant
    2 – change in operating conditions
    3 – both
    4 – other

    Kind Regards,

    Warm Regards,

  190. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    It would appear that you have been operational at least 353 days, and possibly up to 386 days out of the 396 (today is #396) day test! Thank you for your hard work!

    Optimistically yours,

    Tom

    ps: the due diligence is below:
    Based on blog entries dated 12/31/14, 9/19/15, and 1/29/16 it would appear that the duration of the test lasted 394 days to date. As of 9/19/15 you had experienced less than or equal to 28 days of down time, or 0.106464 days per day of down time. Extrapolating the above, you may have experienced an additional 14 days of downtime from 9/19/15 through 1/29/2016, for a total of 42 down days. The time range from 12/31/14 through 1/29/2016 is 395 days of operation, of which approximately 42 days of time the plant may have been down, meaning that you experienced operational status for 353 days out of 400 days during the testing period.

    The 28 days is a maximum number per your blog, with a possible reality of as little as 8 actual days down, which would dramatically change this estimated time of operational status. Also the period from 9/19/15 through 1/29/2016 had almost daily operational status reports, NONE of which indicated an operational status that required flagging as a “non operational” day …

    So, unless the worst case was experienced, and your blog reporting was severely biased in the positive, may I congratulate you on achieving the 350 of 400 days of operation that the contract with the customer required?

    I think you and your team might want to throw your hats in the air and shout hurrah! It really shouldn’t matter if you had some troubles during the test period, the bugs can be worked out and like you said, the redesign process will correct most if not all of them.

  191. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    Not so.
    The count is different.
    Thank you anyway from the sympathy that perspires from your comment.
    The real test started in February, when we thought we were ready to start to count the days of the official test.

  203. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    With you I am very disappointed with the early stop of the plant. I can understand that the fuel did last less long as expected, but that should not be a criterium for disqualification. 1. Do you agree?
    I am sure that when the efficiency is high more fuel (and less energy) is used.
    2. Do you agree?
    3. Is there another reason than exhaustion of the fuel that has stopped the plant?
    4. Have you already taken the plant apart to examine what has gone wrong?
    5. Have all four E-cats failed, or were supporting system failing?
    I am sure you will find a way out and I will keep on supporting you!
    Thanks and kind regards, Gerard

  215. Giuliano Bettini

    Buongiorno Andrea.
    A friend of mine wrote (we all are very curious…):
    “I think the type of destruction will provide us with answers. Past destructions were explosive and indicated perhaps a runaway nuclear reaction. If the destruction is relatively slow (melt down or arcing) it would indicate thermal or electrical effects.”
    How is the E-Cat X dead?
    Respectful greetings
    Giuliano Bettini.

  216. Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, some assumptions. On the end of the test (as it will be positive, I am sure), the Plant will remain in operation for the Customer, but I do not think that you will still be 18 hours a day inside the container. I think that the Plant will be managed by some of your team and you will use most of your efforts and time to continue the research and development especially on the E-Cat X.
    Am I far from reality?

    Kind Regards,

  226. Dave K

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    I understand the demands on your time, so I try not to clutter your blog too often. I appreciate the courtesy and patience with which you answer questions (some of them over and over again), and I find I generally agree with your actions and with what I understand is your path forward.

    I have worked on products (both in R&D and Manufacturing) that were produced in high volume. The products were complex and required precision, but the technology was fairly well understood. Even so, I remember being told that it took a tool maker a full year to make a certain mold for a single plastic gear. Well understood technology is not necessarily easy, and moving to production can be a very slow process! In our products, after testing a few hundred
    units for almost a year, final design decisions were made. From that point, it took about another year before the product could be introduced to the public. Manufacturing lines (which are almost always prototype in nature) had to be tested, channels stocked, worldwide marketing efforts started, etc. I am proud to say that our products were best in class and dominant in market share.

    The point I would like to raise with you is simply whether you feel the size of your team and the resources being brought to bear are well matched to the magnitude of the problems you face. For example, to test reliability, a rudimentary Weibull plot requires at least five units be tested to first failure. This seems to require 5 containers of E-cats instead of one. Since the product must be very reliable for industrial use, the first failure must not occur for many months, if not years (assuming burn-in is not required and the shape factor, usually called Beta, is not << 1).

    In short, it would seem many more units and probably two or more years of work are needed before the 1MW E-Cat can go on the market in volume. That could create competitive openings.

    There are strategies that can shorten the timing of the process a bit, but they require even more resources. As important as this product could be, I would think massive resources should be brought to bear. Market windows can close quickly and unexpectedly. You need to be best in class and first to market to establish brand awareness. The press won’t care about who is number two!

    Buona fortuna!

    Dave

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I don’t know what the new theory is (see below link), but since it has to do with changes in the internal structure of the proton, and by implication may affect the neutron, it may have results that relate to your work with Prof. Norman Cook.

    http://phys.org/news/2016-01-physics-theory-rewrite-textbooks.html

    ” Scientists are closer to changing everything we know about one of the basic building blocks of the universe, according to an international group of physics experts involving the University of Adelaide.

    If the theory is correct, it would force years of experiments to be reinterpreted, and would see the textbooks on nuclear physics rewritten.

    In a paper published online in the prestigious journal Physical Review Letters, a team of three physicists from the United States, Japan and Australia have predicted that the structure of protons could be proven to change inside the nucleus of an atom under certain conditions.
