  1. 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,
    Italo R.

  2. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    Today we got a ‘loophole’.
    Much work remains to be done but in less time than expected, I hope.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  3. Giuseppe

    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

  4. 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
    Andrea

  5. Italo R.

    I wish propose you the following link about E-Cat.

    There surely are many wrong details, nut some are interesting is real:

  6. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    very premature, but I want to add that today the E-Cat X made a tremendous step forward a massive production. Today I am very happy.
    Warmest Regards

    Strange choice 4 to 250kW and 50 to 20kW to reserve … 250kW E-CAT she was born after 1Mw plant construction ?

  8. Andrea Rossi

    Umbi:
    The 250 kW units have been designed on purpose being the maximum power that has been certified.

    Dear Mr. Andrea Rossi.

    I read a report on the link Alban Wolfhart.
    Why serious experts in the energy sector does not take into account in the projections, “Rossi generator”?

    -Ignore? (Do not believe)
    -Lack of information? (Don `t know).
    -Another reason?

    Dr Rosii,

    This may interest your readers Q: What Exactly Is the ‘Next-Generation’ Utility?

    experts are predicting a shift toward a decentralized grid system.

    The electricity business is much different from the consumer tech business.

    But similar forces of change are at work:

  15. 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

    Rip Van Winkle

    Rip Van Winkle:
    Tedious time inside the plant is an oxymoron, but all the same thank you for the nice link!

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    I take my hat off to you.
    I’m impatient but I appreciate the challenges; it is close I hope.
    One day some one will make a film about LENR and Andrea Rossi.
    I look forward to it and to my first E-cats and all the red faces.
    God Bless and Best Regards
    Dave

  19. Marco Serra

    Dear Andrea,
    You said “I think the electrical energy will be produced from us at competuitive costs ….”
    Is this your intention ? To produce and sell electrical energy intead of selling ECatX to allow everyone to self produce it ?

    God bless you

  23. 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.”

    Dear Andrea,
    @Curto,

    This information is Updated “February 2016”.
    4.3 million die each year from interior cook stove emissions. That is one every 7 seconds.

    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.

  26. Andrea Rossi

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

  27. Robert Curto

    Dr. Rossi, can you manufacture an E-Cat Indoor Cookstove ? F9
    Need fuel once a year ?
    Getting fuel is an expensive and enormous effort.
    In my opinion, you could sell Hundreds of Millions.

  29. Ing. Michelangelo De Meo

    Hello, Dr Rossi:
    what will it cost the system for 1 MW ? How much will cost to produce 1 MWh of electricity ? Can you make a comparison with other existing energy sources ? The maintenance costs ? The six-monthly maintainance costs ?
    I send you here a link to an article with the costs of the various energy sources .

    http://www.qualenergia.it/articoli/20150902-costi-di-produzione-solare-e-eolico-battono-le-fonti-fossili-sempre-piu-spesso

  30. Andrea Rossi

    Ing. Michelangelo De Meo:
    I think the electrical energy will be produced from us at competuitive costs, if the plants will work properly, but I am not able to produce numbers yet.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  31. umbi

    For 1MW plant you have used 50 E-Cats. Is it possible to think about a single reactor of 1 MW for industrial use ?

  32. Andrea Rossi

    Umbi:
    We are using 4 E-Cats with a power of 250 kW each. We maintain the 50 20 kW E-Cats as a safety reserve.
    I do not see the point to make bigger modules, so far.
    Warm Regards,

  33. Ing. Michelangelo De Meo

    Hello dr . Rossi,
    I am sending you here a nice video on ‘ E-Cat. When do you think will come out the final results ?

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Again congratulations for your US Patent I found on this post.
    I have one question, if you can answer: is this apparatus able to produce light?
    Regards,
    Robert

  36. Andrea Rossi

    Robert:
    Yes.

  37. Gerard McEk

    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?

  38. Andrea Rossi

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

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

  40. Andrea Rossi

    Luca:
    Too low efficiency.

  45. Ted

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I appreciate your patents strategy: an enormous work to produce many patent applications, sustain them all to get allowed the best and abandone the others. This is why you win: you have a strategy and this explains how has been generated that masterpiece that is your US Patent, because it comes from a selection from many applications.
    Godspeed,
    Ted

  47. 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

  48. 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.

    Thanks if you can answer,
    JCR

  53. Andrea Rossi

    JC Renoir:
    It has not been approved by the USPTO and eventually it has been abandoned from us because obsolete.

    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.

  62. Frank Acland

    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

  63. 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.”

    Interesting ideas,

    Joseph Fine

  65. Frank Acland

    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,

    Frank Acland

  68. 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

  69. 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.
    Warm Regards,

    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.

    Does ‘complex’ in this case mean something positive or negative? Can you help us understand?

    Many thanks,

    The demand of lithium in the last year is strongly increased: the price of Li carbonate has gone from 5k to 14 k$ in 12 months. Is it the case that you buy a good reserve of Li?
    Not related: the primary elements after the Big Bang have been Li, H, He, which arethe main elements acting in the E-Cat: odd coincidence, isn’t it?

    Dear Andrea,
    I know there is much work to be done on the E-Cat X before it is possible to determine if it will become a product, but is it possible to glimpse a photo of the E-Cat X in its current or an earlier state?
    Apologies if my patience is not what it should be.
    Thanks for all your work.

    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

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    there are applications, where you want electricity but no heat, for instance a battery for a laptop. What is the minimum required temperature for the e-catx to produce electricity?

    Thank you.

  112. Andrea Rossi

    Hergen:
    If you want to produce electricity necessarily you produce heat with the E-Cat. We are not thinking to uses of the E-Cat of the kind you cited, so far, so I am not prepared to answer.

  117. 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

  118. 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.

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

  120. 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

  121. 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.

  122. 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?

  123. 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.

  142. Marco Serra

    Dear Andrea
    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.

  148. Kevin Evans

    Dear Eng.Rossi,

    Is the Cat/Mouse timing completely controllable? Could I say setup three cat/mouse systems and off-set them so that the when the mouse of one stops – the mouse of another starts. Would these off-set timings remain intact over time or would they drift out because the mouse/cat switch on cannot be exactly controlled to a precise time in this way. I ask this because with three units I would be paying for Just 1KWh 100% of the time but would (if controllable) be yielding a minimum of 10KWh+1KWh all the time (with some time overlaps yielding 20KWh. This configuration could be useful for selling power back to the grid to reclaim back the original 1Kwh cost.

    Regards,
    Kevin

  149. 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,

  150. 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.
    Warm Regards

  151. 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

    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.

  160. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    Not so.
    The count is different.

    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

    Dr Rossi,
    Do you understand that the fact that you did not put in the market diffusely the E-Cats is food for the sceptics?
    Elise

  179. Andrea Rossi

    Elise:
    Please, understand that to put in the markes an immature product in our case could be devastating.
    There is nobody in the world that more than me desires to put massively the E-Cat in the market, but we are not ready. Too bad about sceptics.

    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.

  185. 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,

  195. 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.

  228. Giovanna

    Dr Rossi, an interesting thought by Buck on ECW, could you comment?

    Wow ! ! !

    “I can only wonder what prompted Rossi to actually answer the question . . . and to answer the question bluntly pointing towards the world of power politics. Certainly, his history of power politics in Italy gives him the personal understanding of the consequences of standing on the toes of other economic interests.

    As a thought, I think this answer reflects a fundamental change in outlook by Rossi/IH, prompting him to think from this perspective. They are reaching the end of the Pilot Plant study. Despite his F9’s, they (Rossi & IH) are nearing a time when the rubber hits the road . . . the future is no longer that far away and consequences are becoming real.

    I have been at the center of a storm a few times in my life. However, my experiences were nothing compared to what Rossi et. al. will be experiencing.”

  231. Steven Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Regards to larger eCat rector modules, I think this would be a mistake. Given your current eCat rectors produce somewhere around 10kW of thermal energy and you have previously stated a linear response and SSM, we can say that each module can be turned-on, turned-off and controlled in output power to some limited range(say 8kW to 12kW). When incorporated into a 1MW combined unit where there are 100 eCat reactors, this allows you to control the generated total power from 10kW to 1MW in 1% steps (of full output) by simply turning-on or turning-off individual reactors. I think this is an important feature when the user demand can change with time, such as an intermediate electric power generation plant. Even in baseload electric power generation applications, the thermal energy must be controlled within limits. Your eCat works best in long term (months) of operation with static or slowly changing loads (time periods of change in minutes or hours)

  232. Andrea Rossi

    Steve N. Karels:
    Too soon to answer.
    We are not ready.

  241. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Andrea,

    Please, if you have some time, can you explain why “all” energy sources should be integrated ?
    With abundant fossil fuels available in the 1960’s to early 2000, most of the industrialized world did not consider wind and solar as important energy sources, besides some experimental setups.
    One of the reasons is that the number of square meters of land needed, per kW and per kWh, to produce renewable energy is huge. E-Cat technology requires less space consumption. Especially in cities, the concentration of energy production is important.

    Some more tech questions:
    Does 500 W E-Cat X produce ligt ? Its size is about a pencil. This makes me think of a 500 Watt halogen lamp.

    E-Cat has already been weighed (very precisely) while it was in operation ? If Yes, could you see the mass dissappear, or something else ?

    Kind Regards,

    Koen

    Dear Andrea,
    Let me be the first to congratulate you on the successful tests of both the low temp cat and the high temp cat. I base my comment on the fact that you have completed over 90% of the scheduled format of the low temp cat with positive results otherwise the test would have been terminated, and you have completed a significant period of test time with positive results in the case of the high temp cat. I like the 9 to 1 odds that you will announce a positive outcome in both tests, and I await the details with great anticipation.
    Confident regards.

  244. Andrea Rossi

    Eernie1:
    I am sorry, but I cannot answer.
    Warm Regards

  245. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I have a Chevy Volt (electric car with gasoline range extender). I understand that the battery energy output of about 14 kWhr will drive the car around 30 miles (maybe 50 miles on the 2016 unit?). The car speed is computer limited to 100 mph. So a rough estimate of the power output of an eCat-X would be about 30 kW of electrical power (after filtering and conditioning).

    You would still need a large battery onboard to handle any startup or transient issues. You would be a better judge of the battery required capacity.

    My concern is the thermal heat generated when the car is parked. If you completely shut-off the eCat-X reactor, then you have the start-up time and therefore a larger battery capacity is needed. If you run the eCat-X continuously (to charge the onboard battery) then you may need to run the eCat-X at much less than its capacity to avoid overheating in confined placed (such as a parking garage) or in direct sunlight condition. My guess is that you might have to throttle the eCat-X down to 10% of its maximum output.

    Do you believe that you can throttle an eCat-X to such a low level?

  246. Stephen

    I understand that part of the ecat-x stress test is to apply more heating to the device. Is this right? If so may ask some clarifications?

    1. Does this generate more or less heat and electricity in equal measure as a result?
    2. Does this generate more heat than electricity as a result?
    3. Does this generate more electricity compared to heat as a result?

    4. If 3 is the case is it possible to have a situation where we get less heat out than that applied but more electricity electricity out? If so it could possibly be useful to a) control heat flow and b) to generate electricity from excess heat.

    I guess 4 is not the case but If 4 is the case Im curious how this fits with the 2nd law of thermodynamics but perhaps the process of electricity generation conserves this somehow which may give some insight into the mechanism.

  247. Andrea Rossi

    Stephen:
    The purposes of the stress test are many.
    Answers:
    1- we’ll see
    2- we’ll see
    3- we’ll see
    4- n.a.
    Results out of thermodynamics laws, if any, are signals that the measurements are wrong.

  261. Byron McDonald

    Dear Dr. Rossi

    By ECatX 1.1 I mean the next iterative model of ECatX incorporating any improvements or advancements arising from operation of the current which I assumed to be ECatx 1.0.

    But, if we hold true to the software version number analogy it is perhaps more appropriate to call the current ECatX a beta version number below 1.0 (E.G. ver. 0.8) to reflect its status as a beta version product. Version number 1.0 typically indicates the first commercial model of a product or software rather than a prototype.

    In any case, my question is whether or not you have prepared a new version of the ECatX to replace this current unit and whether this new version contains any advancements arising from the experience with this present model undergoing destructive testing.

  262. Andrea Rossi

    Byron McDonald:

    Dear Andrea,

    Please build me a YouBoo that I can buy for $1200 today. It would be a chemical battery (typical lithium computer battery) with extended life, capable of output of 3 ampere at 12 volts for up to a guaranteed period of at least 12 months. It is just a battery, no special materials …, perhaps includes nickel, lithium, etc etc and would be fun to play with. There is an joker down the block that is selling something like this to blokes near me, and I want to buy a product from you, ANY PRODUCT. (Google “Orbo Product Launch”).

    There are standard procedures for batteries for UL listing, (but I don’t even think that a UL listing would be required!) for such a product, and it would be a nice toy for me to have.

    Actually, I trust you, and I wouldn’t even need a 12 month guarantee.

    Thank you very much for considering this inquiry,

    Thanks for the answers to the questions. If it proves robust to all those conditions it will be remarkably useful. I hope the tests continue to perform well and maybe even exceed expectations. Looking forward to seeing this applied in the world when it’s ready to be there.

    Andrea Rossi,

    1. What is the most recent status of the 1 MW E-Cat System and the E-Cat X (following the recent test)?

    2. How long did the recent E-Cat X “Stress test” last?

    3. Did you try the E-Cat X “Stress test” more than once?

    4. Can you comment on the (approximate) maximum temperature achieved by the E-Cat X?

    5. What is the average duration of Self-Sustained- Mode (SSM) operation?

    “Curiouser and curiouser” Regards,

    Joseph Fine

  269. Øystein Lande

    Dear Mr Rossi,

    If the test ends positive;

    1. Do you have a goal of sales numbers allready this year?

    2. How many units would your Company be able to construct and deliver in 2016 ?

  270. Robert Curto

    Dr. Rossi, In regards to the E-Cat Snow Removal Device, at the top of the Device it should have two Trap Doors that will remain closed, until they feel the weight of a Bucket of snow, then they will open and close automatically.
    This will keep the heat in the ‘Oven’ when no snow is being dumped in.
    Send this to your Whiz Kids.

    Dear Andrea,
    maybe my questio is “naive” but…
    Trying to destroy the Cat, did you use:
    1 – too much heat
    or
    2 – too much electricity?
    (or none? or both?).
    Explosive regards,
    Giuliano Bettini.

  273. Andrea Rossi

    Giuliano Bettini:
    Too much heat.
    Warm Regards,

  274. Ing. Albert Ellul

    Dear Ing. Rossi,

    Do you have an operational prototype of the domestic e-Cat ready for to be cloned when the roll out (F7) commences?

  275. Andrea Rossi

    Ing. Albert Ellul:
    F7 cannot be defined until F9 has been disclosed.
    Operational prototypes have been made.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  276. Byron McDonald

    Dear Dr. Rossi

    Kindly indicate if the electrical / heat output of E-Catx have met your expectations during this new state of operations? Specifically, have the outputs scaled in step with the increased state of the reaction? If they are scaling, do they scale proportionally or in a logarithmic manner?

    Further, it occurs to me it is possible you have created (whether in design only or in an operating prototype) an E-Catx 1.1 to replace this unit. Are you able to confirm whether this 1.1 exists and if not when?

    Thank you for your work…. I look forward to the day when every E-Cat does not have to come with a clone of Andrea Rossi :)

  277. Andrea Rossi

    Byron McDonald:
    So far the expectations have been achieved. I cannot give details yet, though.
    What do you mean exactly with E-Cat X 1.1 ? In which sense ?
    I share your hope.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  278. Dear Andrea,
    Have you performed on/off torture testing of E-cat X?

    A car’s normal service interval (let us assume it is 30000 km) corresponds to only about 2 weeks of continuous use of the engine (which the E-cat X has thus already bypassed by factor of four), but involves some 500-1000 cold starts. One could simulate cold starts by turning the device on and after it reaches operational temperature, immediately turn it off, wait until it cools completely, then turn on again, etc. In this way, one could probably simulate the required number of cold starts in about one week or so (number depends on how quickly the device warms and cools).

    I would guess that an E-cat car would already be a commercial success if the E-cat replacement interval is about 30000 km, that is, synchronised with the normal service interval of the car and corresponding to 2 weeks of continuous running plus 500-1000 cold starts.

  284. Stephen

    Could you tell us something about the disructive tests being performed on the ecat-x?

    1. Is this a test measuring robustness to high power and high tempt?
    2. Is the test imeasuring robustness to multiple power cycles?
    3. Is the test measuring robustness to external factors such as
    a) the external thermal environment? Both hot and cold and transients?
    b) multi axis vibrational and acoustic environment?
    c) external EM environment?

    I suppose 3 could be useful for the jet engine or other kinds of transportation constraints as well as use in uncontrolled environments. Perhaps those tests are more applicable to particular devices designed for those uses and built taking into account those constraints.

  285. Andrea Rossi

    Dr. Rossi, I know you are overwhelmed about possible uses for the E-Cat.
    But if this one is possible, it could make a huge amount of money.
    Snow removal today:
    A Front End Bucket Loader scoops up a Bucket of snow and dumps it into a Truck. Then they drive the Truck to a large empty space, not easy to find in a City, and dump it.
    Or if there is a nearby River, they dump it there. As you know this is very expensive.
    Every City has a Storm Drain, to Drain rain water from City Streets.

    Is this possible ?
    At the Storm Drain park an E-Cat with a very large and very hot Bin.
    Dump the Bucket Load into the Bin, where it will become water and flow down the Drain.
    Then move the E-Cat to the next Block.

    P.S. On your Website, you do say you are the Founder of Leonardo Corporation in 1997.

    Dear Andrea,

    Is there anything you can tell us about the owners of Leonardo Corporation and the Board of Directors that you report to? If you can’t identify them, can you say maybe something about their background, goals and interests?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  293. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    No, I am not authorized to give any information about the ownership, so far.
    Their goals are same of mine: to create the biggest possible world concern for the exploiting of this technology. F9. To create jobs. To create good products to allow our Customers to make money with the E-Cats. To help the global Environment integrating our energy at maximum levels with the existing sources.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  294. Daniel De Caluwé

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    In your first answer to Barty you wrote:

    There are many parts of the plant that need upgrading and the next generation of industrial plants (F9) will be different. I cannot give the details of the parts to be modified, for obvious reasons, but we are talking not just of plumbing and wiring, we are talking of internal structure of the reactors.
    This plant belongs to the first generation, substantially it is equal to the plant tested in Bologna in the Winter of 2011; the next one will be different and I am already designing it (again: F9).

    i) Doesn’t this mean that the next generation also requires a new extensive test period like the one you’re performing now?

    ii) As you mainly tested the new 4x250kW units, does this mean that the improvements for the next generation are about these 4x250kW units, and not about the old/ordinary 1MW plant (made up by 10kW units) that was in reserve?

    iii) Is the old/ordinary 1MW plant (made up by 10kW units) sufficiently tested to sell to your client or new clients?

    iv) If your client is satisfied by the present test, will he go on with the old/ordinary 1MW plant (and in that case, is it sufficiently tested, see question iii), or with the newer 4×250 kW units? And in the latter case, what about the leakages and other problems? Wouldn’t he prefer the next generation (in the case of the 4×250 kW units)?

    I hope you don’t mind the critical attitude in my above questions, but I too have the impression that development of the E-cat still is going on (the E-cat is in its development phase), and that you still will need further tests with new generations?

    Nevertheless, for an observer like me, your work already is a big success (because you generate lots of excess energy with the E-cat, that in all its forms (E-Cat X, 10kW units, 250 kW units) is a wonderful LENR device), and I wish you all success in further developing it!

    (I know you only consider it as a success if you can sell a lot of units, but for many of your observers, like me, you already are successful, because we are convinced that you already generate a lot of excess energy, and that it’s only a matter of further development and engineering to solve some remaining problems…)

    Kind Regards,
    Daniel.

    Hi Andrea,
    About the E-cat x that is going into destructive tests would be very interesting to know the power density reached in the last minutes of its life, and how many minutes it lasts before melting, this perhaps could be useful at the take off, to supply the jet engine, some elements could be lost each take off and replaced… F9 permitting.

    Best regards

    Alessandro Coppi:
    I agree. Will do.

  298. Michael S

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You have hinted to us readers that the X-Cat could potentially produce 50/50 heat and electricity. On the other hand you are working hard on jet engine fueled by ecat heat. These engines are extremely expensive in acquisition and maintenance. Are you aware that electric high voltage engines are being developed currently that ultimately will be less expensive to buy & use ? ( http://ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/casi.ntrs.nasa.gov/20150000748.pdf ; http://www.flyingmag.com/aircraft/siemens-unveils-260-kw-electric-aircraft-motor ; http://sunjet-project.eu/sites/default/files/Airbus%20-%20Delhaye.pdf ;

    The biggest hurdle to adoption of electric fans is the complexity of the hybrid power train, batteries missing the necessary energy density. So my question is shouldn’t the X-cat be explored as power source ? It would not need to run for a year. A month between recharge would already be perfect :) And two major cost factors of plane travel would be solved to the benefit of all (pollution being solved in both cases).

    Which makes me ask one more question : could the reliability of electricity producing ecat’s be better then a full thermal ecat, considering less heat induced wearing ?

    Kind regards,

    Michael S.

  299. Andrea Rossi

    Michael S.:
    Thank you for your insight. I am not able to answer, because the E-Cat X is still in a preliminar phase and is not ready for any of the applications you propose.

  312. Dan C.

    Dear Andrea,

    I’ve speculated on likely advantages of the E-cat X that make Jet engines feasible.

    1) It’s Able to maintain extreme temps(1400`C) continuously
    2) The singular 1KW reactors can be brought to temperature measured in minutes instead of hours.
    3) Noting that heat dispersal is critical to create thrust, 10 pencil sized 1KW reactors in a matrix would disperse the heat to compressed air much faster and efficiently then a single 3 inch diameter 10KW reactor.
    4) E-cat X ability to respond quickly, power output could be ramped up/down quickly or incrementally.

    Number 4 is important. You don’t want an E-cat Jet engine at full power while idling at the airport. Among other issues, after about 20 seconds at full power, it can start ripping up the runway.

  320. Øystein Lande

    Dear Mr Rossi,

    Could you comment on my thoughts Below?

    One would Expect that LENR have a different energy emission spectrum than electrical heated alumina.

    Alumina transmittance and LENR energy spectrum is unkown parameters in the Lugano test.

    The alumina is transparent for certain part of the electromagnetic spectrum, which will not be absorbed by alumina and next the IR camera.

    The IR camera was detecting in the 7-13 um spectrum, and the assumption would be that the energy spectrum from El.heating, and LENR are somewhat equal…

    We don’t know the LENR energy emission spectrum, since it has not been quantified.

    If there are high energy emission in a part of the spectrum of high alumina transmittance, then this would not be picked up as heat signal, and energy production may actually be underestimated by the Lugano report.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, I have read a message by Mats Lewan on ECW about his witness on E-Cat, and I think it is interesting for all, and for the skeptics in particular:

    “…The experiment by Rossi that convinced me most (one of the four where I made the measurements) was on October 6, 2011, when the E-Cat, after a few hours of start-up, was put in ‘self-sustained mode’ meaning that all electric input, except for the control system, was detached, and the water inside the E-Cat continued to boil for almost four hours, even though fresh water was continuously added by a pump. You could feel the boiling inside, output temp was 114 degrees centigrade, and the temperature on the surface of the well insulated E-Cat remain around 60 to 85 degrees centigrade. Try to repeat that without adding heat! Only possible if you had heat stored in melted salt inside, but Rossi opened the E-Cat after the test and there was no such thing inside. See also: http://www.nyteknik.se/nyheter…”

    I read you are going to drive the E-cat X into destruction.
    1. I guess you will not do that while sitting next to it and watching this happening while wearing your sunglasses, I am sure? 😉
    2. You must have done this before, are you able to elaborate about the dangers that may be involved?
    3. Will you do that with all three?
    4. Is it right to assume that you do this to determine the safety limits or are also other reasons?
    5. When this is finished, will that be the end of the test phase?
    6. When will you be able to present additional details of the E-cat X?
    Thanks for always answering all our curious questions.

    Caro signor Rossi.

    Tanti eventi meravigliosi nel corso dell’ultimo anno:
    – US Patent!!!
    – E-Cat X,
    – Generazione di energia elettrica,
    – Motore Jet.

    Non vediamo l’ora alla fine del test un impianto di 1 MW.

    Sarei molto grato per le brevi risposte a due domande:

    1. L’impressione che viene in primo piano E-Cat X, la domanda preliminare per 10kW più accettato?
    2. Сiclo di Carnot rilevante come prima? O solo in parte?

    1- the 10 kW module is the most requested
    2- the Carnot cycle is the best application if electricity has to be made by steam

  344. Hergen

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    will the next 1 MW reactor you are already designing have e-catx capabilities? I mean will the reactor be able to produce at least enough electricity it needs for its own operations?

    Thank you.

  345. Andrea Rossi

    Hergen:
    Must put a distinction between consolidated products, like the heat producing 1MW E-Cat (F9) and the E-Cat X that is still in preliminar R&D.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    thank you for your reply!

    That the current plant design isn’t ready for mass production was foreseeable by everyone who knows how hard it is to bring a product prototype to mass production market quality.

    The most important point for many of your followers (and I guess also for a part of the silently watching scientific community) is not the immediate market readyness at the end of this test.
    It’s the hope for a 100% bullet-proof safety that LENR phenomenon itself exists, works, gives usable energy and is not just a dream or scam, like the pathosecptics predict.

    If you (especially the independent referee or customer) can deliver and witness this, you will already be the winner in this game, even if you and your team need a few months more to fix engineering problems :)

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    The place in the factory where the 1 MW plant is in operation has windows? Can you describe it?
    Tonia

  349. Andrea Rossi

    Tonia Naylor:
    Windows are amenities we cannot condone to us…the place reserved to the plant is completely closed and blind; the circulation of air is made by a fan system from the roof. The warm air is extracted from the roof. Obviously we have conditioned air inside the container of the computers.
    We cannot see outside if not with the cameras installed by the security staff.
    The place is maintained pretty clean, though. It couldn’t be otherwise, since I am strongly allergic to powder: a small bunch of powder can unleash an asthma attack, so I need to stay always in the clean.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Alexvs:
    The response of Andrea to Gian Luca was humoristic, as many times Andrea does and Gian Luca is too intelligent not to have understood it; I suspect that when you accuse Andrea of arrogance and lack of sense of humour you introject yourself in the answer Andrea gave to the comment of Gian Luca.
    Cheers,

  351. Swedo

    Dear A.R

    I was wondering, the 1-MW plant frequently have problems with leakages. How will you address this problem once you begin to manufacture and sell these plants (F9).

    Kind regards

  352. Andrea Rossi

    Swedo:
    Good point. Leakages have been an issue during this test. The hydraulic system too has to be improved.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Did you already make a drawing of a jet engine fueled by the E-Cat?
    Congratulations for your US Patent.
    Thank you if you can answer,

    Christopher Maston:
    Yes.

  357. Mel Guinto

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    about peer reviewed publications:
    I agree with you, an allowed USPTO Patent is the best and most difficult peer reviewed publication that an invention can have. It is a years long reviewing made by specialists of the matter that, as you correctly say, has implication in the industrial world that no other publication can have, not even nature, Science etc.
    Cheers,
    Mel Guinto

  358. Andrea Rossi

    Mel Guinto:
    Well said.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    the 1 MW plant is now running nearly one year, and the test will end in just a few days.

    You often wrote that the plant is working well and stable, with few fixable issues from time to time, what is understandable and absolutely normal when we keep in mind that this is more or less a prototype plant.

    But you still say the final results can be negative.

    After such a long runtime with COP > 1, I guess when you talk about “negative results” you are not talking about the fundamental concepts of your LENR technology nor that the “Rossi effect” is not existing?

    I guess you talk about the “things around” this reactor, like used materials, control system, plumping, load balancing and and and, all the things needed to make the LENR energy economically usable?

    Am I right in this assumption?

    I can not believe that you yourself still are not sure about the reality of any excess energy producing reaction, what ever part of physics may be responsible for it.

    Can you just give some hints about which parts of the reactor and plant have an impact to “positve or negative” results?

    Thank you very much, and good luck for the last few counting days 😉

    Barty:
    Your assumption has right of citizenship in the kingdom of logic, but we must be conservative.
    There are many parts of the plant that need upgrading and the next generation of industrial plants (F9) will be different. I cannot give the details of the parts to be modified, for obvious reasons, but we are talking not just of plumbing and wiring, we are talking of internal structure of the reactors.
    This plant belongs to the first generation, substantially it is equal to the plant tested in Bologna in the Winter of 2011; the next one will be different and I am already designing it (again: F9).
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  361. Andrea Rossi

    Alexvs (and Gian Luca):
    Our friend Gian Luca was making a joke with his comment: I answered with a joke. If my joke could have been interpreted seriously, I apologize, it was surely not my intention.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  362. Dear Dr Rossi
    I may be a bit slow but what does F9 mean

  363. Andrea Rossi

    Manuel Cilia:
    It comes from a joke: since I repeated many times the phrase ” the final results of the test on course can be either positive or negative”, a Reader proposed to save time and substitute this phrase with a computer function pressing, for example “F9″. I followed suit. Therefore F9 = ” remember that the final results could be either positive or negative”.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  364. Alexvs

    Dear Mr. Rossi.

    Your response to Mr. Gian Luca is inappropiate. He, specially he, does not deserve such an arrogant, acid and humourless response.

    Dear Andrea,
    it’s possible to know how many contacts (e-mail or other) you receives in a day/week.
    You are a robot or not…..please compiled a CAPTCHA…..afg6H
    Ecat X curve space time and then you have a 36-hour day?

    Have a nice day….

  367. Andrea Rossi

    Gian Luca:
    I am a robot, but I am not stupid: here is your CAPTCHA: afg6H : satisfied? I am anyway a robot, but of a special series: remember the Blade Runner? That’s me!
    I receive many emails, so I cannot answer to all and I trash most of them, but I always answer to emails that need an answer. As I said, I am a robot, but not an imbecile.
    I do not know, as any robot, how long is a day, it is not my business, but I know how many hours per shift I have to be turned on in the plant where I realize my function: it’s 18 hours.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  368. Helmut Schrieder

    Dear Andrea Rossi:
    You will publish the non confidential results of the test of the 1MW E-Cat also if they will be negative?

    Helmut Schrieder:
    Yes.

  370. Riccardo Ciazza

    Dear Mr. Rossi, two years ago I bet with my friend that Nature, Science or PNAS would have published an article on the “Rossi effect”. I lost the bet, I paid a fish dinner in a very expensive restaurant. I doubled the bet for the end of 2017 do you think that I will win this time?
    Any high level peer review planned in the next months?

  371. Andrea Rossi

    Riccardo Ciazza:
    I understand that you bet with your friends that I was going to obtain a peer reviewed publication in a prestigious and well known site.
    You won, you should get the value of the bet: my apparatus has been published in the most important and sought after peer reviewed publication of the world: the USA Patent Office. No publication is more rigorously peer reviewed and more important than the USPTO publication, also for its enormous implications related to the industrial world.
    Go cash your bet!
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  372. Frederic Maillard

    Dear Dr. Rosssi,

    You replied to Franck Acland that the ERV (Expert Responsible for Validation) can not publish information about your E-Cat test so that it could be available to the general public because “he is bound to an NDA”.

    As it is possible for him not to mention the customer’s name in a report, did you plan to release him from his NDA commitment to you to be able to publish such a report ?

    Best wishes
    FM

  373. Andrea Rossi

    Frederic Maillard:
    I do not think the ERV’s report will be published, being a confidential document, but surely a publication will be made about the results in the Leonardo Corporation’s website, in full respect of all the information that must remain restricted for contractual issues. From the guarantees that will be offered in the sale of industrial plants ( if any) there will be further evidence of the results. F9.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  374. Brokeeper

    Dear Andrea,

    I understand your apprehensive declaring success until the end. Just as Cristoforo Colombo must have had angst negotiating unfamiliar waters before landing in the New World, so you too must negotiate untraveled shallow waters with unseen obstacles the closer you arrive to your goal in landing a successful test. Using wisdom Cristoforo Colombo provided redundancy with three ships. You also wisely provided contingencies for success should a vessel fail. His Santa Marie ran aground off the coast of Cuba. Eventually after forced to disengage from the Pinta he ended up with just one ship, Nina, before returning to Spain and fulfilling his customer’s contract. His narrow success set in motion new exciting adventures and discoveries of the New World. Wish you and your newly acquired experienced scientific crew many exciting voyages to and for this brave New World.
    With much respect,
    Brokeeper

    Dear Andrea,

    If the ERV cannot make public any data from the test, could a report that includes the ERV’s data be published by someone else (with the ERV’s permission)?

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I want to add my congratulations to the thousands you already received for your wonderful US Patent.
    Your strategy has been unbelievely smart: you have made first a patent doomed to rejection to give a fake target to your enemies everywhere, while the real patent was marching undisturbed to the success. To be teached in the schools of industrial strategy: simply genial.
    Godspeed,

    Dear Andrea,

    The subject: ecat.com scrolling issues.
    This is not unique to ecat.com, I’ve encountered this issue on other sites. Some have said they have no issues, but due to past security problems of Java, it’s possible I think, even probable they don’t have Java installed or it’s been previously disabled. They wouldn’t be aware they are missing out on something that should be displayed on screen.

    It’s been suggested that the data is to heavy and to use compressed files. I assume they confuse the terms and actually mean lower resolution graphics. This wont fix the problem.

    I see those responsible for the web site are already stripping down some of the page.
    Don’t. The page itself was fine from the beginning. Actually very appealing and this from a person who as a rule likes simple uncluttered web pages.

    They need to work the problem. Not the symptoms. The problem is JavaScript or probably to be more specific, The Script that Java is running in the background.

    My guess is with every scroll line of the screen, Java reruns the script, resizing, rescaling, and repositioning every detail on the screen. This uses Millions of CPU cycles & can take a second or 2 every time it attempts to scroll. You can see the spikes in the CPU usage in the Task Manager.

    Think in the terms of a U-haul trailer with 100 items in it. Moving the trailer 1 foot is a single scroll line, To accomplish this scroll, you unload everything, move the trailer 1 foot, then place everything back into position inside. Repeat for every scroll line as long as I try to scroll the screen.

    Of course, what the computer is doing is more complex, because, besides moving everything, It also has to perform many mathematical equations to re-size & reposition each & every item every time thus the CPU usage spike can be seen in the Task Manager.

    As evidence to my assumption, Disable Java & what remains on screen scrolls very smoothly. If I’m right, Those in charge of ecat.com can strip or down size 80% of what is on page & this problem will persist even if marginally improved.
    ————————————————————————–
    Andrea, I believe Mr. Fabiani has programing skills. If so, Perhaps run this past him and get his opinion.
    ————————————————————————–
    To those in Charge of setting up ecat.com. Is it necessary to run the script repeatedly when scrolling. Shouldn’t this be a once and done when the page is loaded.
    If certain aspects require it, shouldn’t this be split into separate scripts rerunning only that portion that requires it instead of the whole page.
    ————————————————————————–
    I tend to agree with Chris Beall. All this scrolling is tiring and even tho the page looks very nice, Probably I wouldn’t stay long on site if it were not very important to me. It would also be discouraging to potential customers.

    I hope this info can be of help. And to you Andrea, Take care of yourself.

    Kindest regards.

  398. D Coltrane

    notable quote from Axil Axil as seen on ecat world:

    How long will it take science to turn their minds to the reality of LENR? How many years will science deny that LENR actually exists even in the face of the E-Cat on the market? How long will the bean counters need to wait before they can hire scientists who can redirect their research from particle physics to solid state physics. Rossi may have a 20 year head start on those who minds are permanently closed.

  399. Andrea Rossi

    D. Coltrane:
    What counts is not what some scientists say; what counts is if a product will be working in the market. At the dawn of the car-technology ( aroumd 1890-1905) many scientists said that a speed of 20 miles per hour could damage permanently the cardiovascular system of humans; others said that cars could never substitute horses: how could cars overcome all the hurdles in a countryside? The car sellers had to say, to convince the buyers, that a car is better than a horse “because cars don’t eat when they are not marching”. To change things have not been the biased minds of scientists during their eventual evolution, but the products, the cars invading the market.
    The comment of Axil Axil is intelligent, though.

    Dear Andrea and readers.
    The Company Lux Research shows in a press release that el-vehicles or fuel cells will not drive auto efficiency in 2025.
    http://www.luxresearchinc.com/news-and-events/press-releases/read/micro-hybrids-not-electric-vehicles-or-fuel-cells-will-drive
    The introduction of E-Cat-X may totally change this. 10kW el-power in combination with battery pack will double the driving range of a el-car and make it recharge itself. The CO2 emission will be zero and the car may also supply the grid with clean energy. Soon will many carmakers knock on your door. Best regards Svein Henrik

    Dear Mr. Rossi,
    I have a question concerning the licence situation. Your new invention of the e-cat x opened the door to new applications, which had been impossible before.I think of applications in the aviation space, the automotive space, the battery space (batteries for laptops, perhaps even batteries for power tools) and others. Are all these new possible applications covered by the licences you already sold, or are you able to sell additional licences for these new applications?

    Thank you.

    I caanot talk here of the licenses, that are a delicate and confidential matter.

    Hallo to everybody.
    Just a clue: air conditioning, warming/cooling, is an issue for electric cars. I mean that use of electricity from batteries to warm/cool indoor air significantly reduces mileage that can be covered with one charge. Well, in its first market appearances, E-Cat could prove extremely useful to supply heat for air conditioning on transportation means (cars, trucks, trains, etc.).

    Is it possible get 50 percent heat/50 percent electricity from the E-Cat X? Can you do it now, or do you think it will be possible in the future?

    BTW, I confirm that turning off Javascript in my Chrome browser makes the ecat.com page scroll very smoothly.

  417. eernie1

    Dear Andrea,
    I am amazed at your ability to keep your test results for the e-cats hidden. Even using the most stringent form of DNRs you must have exposed some of the results to a large number of people who were capable of passing information on to acquaintances and fellow workers and yet no revelations. Included in the realm of possible disclosure are those sources of legitimate interest who have inquired about purchasing large quantities of devices, the many people you have interviewed for those executive and technical jobs required for full scale production and your scientific advisors used in your development of a feasible theory. The closest I have noted was the remarks of one of your workers who stated the results were extraordinary and not seen in any of his previous work. This spectrum of informed people must number in the hundreds if not thousands. It is close to a miracle, you must have extraordinary loyalty among those informed.
    Amazed regards

    On the Journal of Nuclear Physics website, in the ‘Leave a Reply’ section at the bottom of every article, there is a statement that ‘You can use these HTML tags’. The link within that statement, however, simply re-displays the same page, providing no clue as to what HTML tags might be permitted. (I’m not sure such tags would add to the discourse, but a promise is a promise…)

  420. Andrea Rossi

    Chris Beall:
    Thank you for your important suggestion. It has been passed on to the Special Team that is working on the website http://www.leonardocorporation.com .
    Warm Regards,

  421. Chris Beall

    Dr. Rossi,

    At this time, although there has been some improvement, I am still seeing scrolling performance problems on your website (and on no others). I have a wired Ethernet connection, with a verified download speed of 6 Mb/sec. But the issue is unrelated to download speed. As someone else described, disabling javascript resolves the issue, even on Firefox (where it seems to be most prominent). I also tested by disconnecting my internet connection after a page had downloaded. Scrolling still functioned (slowly), thus demonstrating that additional internet traffic was not required during scrolling.

    Technical details aside, I see two problems exposed by this issue:

    1. It has long been said in business that the customer is always right. The customer for your website is anyone who chooses to visit it. You want their experience to be a good one. No visitor wants to be told that their connection speed is too slow, their browser the wrong one to use, or their computer speed not high enough. The web site should work well for everyone; otherwise the CONTENT of your site will not reach all of the potential audience. I think you will agree that this would not be good.

    2. As others have pointed out, there are many things that could be done to improve the performance of the site: compressing images, breaking content into more, but smaller, pages, reducing or eliminating presentation tricks such as displaying images in strips or blocks or wipes, etc., measuring download bandwidth required and reducing it in other ways, testing with all popular browsers. Your concern should be that all of these things are standard, well-known, components of web site design, yet they were not done on your site before it was released. As your project moves from a laboratory exercise to a commercial venture, you will be unable to do everything yourself; you will need to hire others, yet the results they produce will reflect on you and your company. You therefore need to be very careful in their selection.

    Sorry to be so critical, but my comments are intended to be helpful.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I think that the heat produced from your E-Cat is just from the chemical reaction coming from the hydride you use.
    It is a pity that you surely will spam this, to hide this “hot” point.
    Chemical Regards,
    Ricky

  424. Andrea Rossi

    Ricky Henrik:
    Let’s return to the Lugano report: the charge of a reactor contains several hundred milligrams of hydride: let’s assume 1 gram.
    The chemical calorific value of such amount of hydride is worth about 10 Wh (to be generous).
    The charge in 1 month of test has produced hundreds of kWh of excess heat, versus a total of 10 Wh allowed by the chemical calorific value of the hydride contained in the charge.
    You can have a deeper information about this issue if you check the Ragone diagram published in the same report.

    Dear Andrea,
    In the new photo published today on your website http://www.ecat.com with you inside the 1 MW E-Cat in operation you appear very slim: your clothes became floppy and you are a lot slimmer than in the photos of one year ago. The plant is consuming you, isn’t it?
    Thank you for your work.
    Latashia

  428. Andrea Rossi

    Latashia:
    Your care is delighting. Well, yes, also my team guys say I am continuing to appear slimmer, but I am very well. I work 18 hours per day and I am always very nervous, for obvious reasons: every minute I do not know what will happen the next minute, every signal from the plant can be interpreted as an alarm to be checked, but, thanks God, I am well. When the test will have been completed I will take more care of this issue, now I have not time for it and, most of all, I want not to hear about this issue: I have to stay focused on the plant.
    Thank you!
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  431. Luis Wilets

    Dr Rossi:
    The theory you are elaborating with Prof Norman Cook is based upon the reverse Mossbauer effect and the Feynmann interpretation of the QED, correct?
    But QED has been interpreted also in many other ways, are you aware of this? Which is the starting point concerning the reverse-Mossbauer effect for your mathematical model?
    Thank you,
    Luis Wilets

  432. Andrea Rossi

    Luis Wilets:
    First question: correct.
    Second question: yes, I am aware of the fact that QED has many and controversial interpretations, as everything in nuclear physics, but I grasped avidly a serious link that can help to reconcile what we do with what we can think
    Third question: the starting point is the basic Mossbauer equation, that, if further developed, is a gold mine. To me.
    Warm Regards,

    1 MW E-Cat: stable, some leakage promptly repaired during the last night.
    E-Cat X: operating and technologically improving with the US engineer now in the scientific commettee of Leonardo Corporation that has connections with an important aerospace concern. The technology is definitely improving. By the way: I have gathered in Leonardo Corporation a scientific commettee made by a team of top level scientists and engineers to improve our R&D capacity: these persons, that have honoured us accepting the appointment, are from USA, Europe, Japan, India. We must fight to obtain and perpetuate positive results and remain the number 1 of the sector for ever. Also the management of Leonardo Corporation has been reinforced substantially.

    Dear Andrea,
    with your dream so far you stimulated very much our imagination and we dream too.
    In one of my dream i seen every gadgets and tools sold equiped with its own ecat-x.
    The hair dryer , the food processor ,the vacuum cleaner , the drill and the car .
    No cables , no strings attached , just change the ECAT exhausted after a couple of years that will be sold in a standard format depending on the power required.
    What do you think about this dream ?
    It is something that can never be realized ?
    Regards, Giuseppe il visionario.

  438. Andrea Rossi

    Giuseppe:
    If the dream I exposed at midnight of the Eve 2016 comes true, everything becomes possible, but now we have to work humbly to try to make it possible.

    Dear readers
    I continue to think that the approaching date of the end of the test is the cause of the drop in oil prices . It will be just a coincidence? Maybe but I’m not sure….
    Frank Acland says they should miss about 39 days at the end of the test . Let’s see what happens . There may be big news that is not expected
    Alegar

  441. Andrea Rossi

    Gian Luca:
    The fall of the oil price comes from the low level of the demand respect the offer and this is caused by the strong global crisis of the manufacturing processes.

  443. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    If you are thinking of developing the E-Cat X for transportation, do you think it would be a good idea to partner with one or more established automaker where they are constantly working on R&D, and have lots of experienced talent dedicated to automotive innovation?

    Kind regards,

  453. Bob

    Dear Andrea Rossi

    1. Information in the popular press states that the all electric 2017 Chevrolet Bolt will have a 200 mile range with power supplied from a 60KW lithium ion battery back. If the E-CatX proves to be workable, could one supply power equivalent to the Chevy Bolt battery for a moving vehicle?

    2. If the E-CatX proves to be viable do you envision use for transportation?

    3. If yes to #2, have you or your team assessed the safety requirements for operation of the E-CatX while in a vehicle in motion?

    4. If yes to #3 are you satisfied with the quality of your assessment today or is there more work to do.

    5. If the E-CAtX proves to be viable for transportation uses, can you tell us which transport type, (air, water, rail, car, truck, bus) might be developed first?

    Thanks

    Bob

  454. Andrea Rossi

    Bob:
    1- let’s first see if the E-Cat X works
    2- yes
    3- not so far, obviously the safety certification will be a core issue
    4- much more work to do
    5- the one for which we will have more stimulus: too soon to know

    Dear Dr. Rossi, another suggestion if I may, about your website. The beautiful image of the galaxies (Frontpage_opt.png) is heavy. It measures 1171 x 550 pixels (it’s OK), but its weight is 259 KB, that really is too much. With a simple software for images, it is possible compress it up about 70 KB having the same dimensions in pixel and no difference in visual quality. In the following links there are the two images: the first (png) is the original in your website; the second (jpg) is the compressed I have made. And as you can see they seems exactly the same, but the time to download them is different!

    The same thing can be made to all other images in your website.

    Dear Andrea,
    In your search for the theory behind Ecat, you may need better analyzing tools. Hot fusionists found an interesting method. See: http://revolution-green.com/seeing-where-energy-goes-may-bring-scientists-closer-to-realizing-nuclear-fusion/

    Especially this may help you when the fuel is doped with a bit of copper:
    “To tackle this problem, the team devised a way to see, for the first time, where energy travels when the high-intensity laser hits the fuel target. The technique relies on the use of copper tracers inside the fuel capsule. When the high-intensity laser beam is directed at the compressed fuel target, it generates high-energy electrons that hit the copper tracers and cause them to emit X-rays that scientists can image.”

    I hope this will help you as well!
    Thanks and please go on with your great work!
    Kind regards, Gerard

    About your new website. Here in Italy, using Chrome as a browser on my computer, there are no particular problems.
    I have my personal website with hundreds of pages and many thousands of photographs.
    Although it seems very heavy, in reality it is very light, because it loads a page at a time. The trick is that each page is light and do not overcharge the memory. Each page has moreover many links to access to other sections of the site where there are many other informations and other links, and so on. So the site can also be gigantic, but loading a page at a time (each light), the navigation will be always fast and fluid.

    I hope this information could be useful.
    Kind Regarda,
    Italo R.

  464. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    Thank you for your useful suggestion to our Readers!
    We also have decided, to avoid further weight, to make specific websites for the versions in other languages. For example, for the Spanish version ( in preparation and soon online) we will make “www.leonardocorporationSpanish.com” and put in the English version a link to it. Will proceed sameway for the other languages in preparation.

    Thank you for the information: I passed it on to the Special Team.
    By the way, many improvements have been achieved during these days, after the publication of the new website http://www.leonardocorporation.com , thanks to the suggestions of our Readers. Thank you very much from the Team and me. Be sure that all your suggestions, no exception, have been and are carefully analyzed and applied for if possible. Most of them have been applied for.
    Warm Regards,

  468. Pierre Carbonnelle

    Dear Mr Rossi,

    Do you have any commercial plans for the e-cat X in the automotive industry ? What would be the time frame ? Would you seek exclusive agreements with a partner, or seek to have several licensees ?

    Thanks in advance,
    PC

  469. Dan C.

    Dear Andrea,

    For reference, I have a 3.6ghz quad core, 4 gig memory, 1 gig video.
    It takes about 2 seconds to download the Leonardo website. It peaks at 4Mb download speed which is less then my bandwidth. No further loading is necessary. Bandwidth isn’t the problem. At least not for all.

    The experience of the slow and jerky scroll on ecat.com may be found on other WordPress sites that use JavaScript as well. Just my opinion, but It appears “WordPress & java” don’t always play well together. JavaScript is simply a CPU pig when running requiring 25% to 70% of the CPU’s resources when (Switching images or scrolling) on Leonardo’s website.

    If you “disable Java”, the issues cease and scrolling is fine. However, you will lose some of the functions that were performed by Java. Such as the image changes on the home page. As to Chrome performing better, that is an illusion, as Java is merely moving the data in smaller quantities(Probably a setting for this) on Chrome. The scrolling is still slow, just less jerky in appearance. Perhaps they can use another means then Java to handle the display.

    Dan C.

    Dear Andrea, you said, “how much I hope to make jobs with the E-Cats!”. In Cobraf italian site, a nicely informed forum where your supporters and unbelievers divide and fight furiously for many years, recently was posted a link to a study:

    http://www.thesolarfoundation.org/national/

    which states that in 2015, in USA, people employed in solar industry surpassed, at 209,000, those employed in oil & gas industry stuck at 187,000. This sounded very weird to me, so I looked into a detailed study made upon Bureau of Labor Statistics database:

    https://www.americanprogress.org/issues/green/news/2014/01/22/82571/big-oil-small-jobs-a-look-at-the-oil-industrys-dubious-job-claims/

    This one sets total oil and gas industry employment at 1,859,730 (2013), also saying that other statistics made by oil industry itself are probably largely overstimated; for example American Petroleum Institute declares 9,200,000 jobs in oil and gas sector, probably including indirect and induced jobs in other, unrelated utilities ansd manufacturing sectors (from this inflated numbers provided by oil industry, one could easily suppose that statistics provided by solar industry itself could be exaggerated too).

    It is interesting to note that roughly half of the employed in both sectors are destined to installers (solar) and gas station employers (oil)! Oil industry is tipically an high capital intensive activity, and massive financial means have to be spent upfront (drilling machinery, etc). Also LENR industry would be largely robotized, but nobody can make money with technology progress (Solow’s theories about social richness by productivity growth have been already dismissed); we know that economic growth is due to capital and labor inputs in an industry; since capital is essentially a byproduct of labor, I think it will be important that – in your future F9 industry – people, and in particular workers employed in installation and relative distribution and support services, play an important role and be strictly connected to you.

  476. Andrea Rossi

    Dr. Rossi and Readers, if you are interested in reading about a battery for the home.
    It could save money using power from the battery in the off peak hours.
    It could store power you don’t need, when the Sun is shinning, and the wind is blowing.
    It could be useful if the Grid goes down, you could power your Fridge, TV,
    Microwave, and lights. This battery could cost $7,000 dollars or more.
    Google:
    ORISON HOME BATTERY
    Read at least the first 4 websites.
    Robert Curto

    P.S I can’t see this to be of any help for the E-Cat.
    But just maybe the E-Cat will eliminate the need for:
    Solar
    Wind
    Concern about peek hours
    Emergency Power
    The Grid itself !

  479. Andrea Rossi

    Robert Curto:
    Thank you for the information related to the new batteries.
    About the E-Cat and the other energy sources: you will never see the E-Cat eliminate any of them, but you will see the E-Cat, if it will work properly, integrated with them.

    Dear Andrea,

    My laptop computer has four processor cores, each 3.4 GHz 64-bit, with hyperthreading. (four physical cores can work as eight cores, from the point of view of the operating system).
    If Ecat.com opens, there is one core, out of eight, that goes to 50% load at once, and remains there. If I start to scroll, or open menus or do something else, that one core goes to 100% load, while the website appears choppy. All other cores do nothing.

    If I open a website for the local news, with all video and lots of ads and texts, I see that all the tasks are divided among the different processor cores on the computer. The cores never reach 100% use which makes that everything keeps running smooth.

    I think the software with which the website was created, does not support multi-core or hyperthreading.

    Thus, it is not the size of the web site that is a problem, but the fact that the web site is written to be processed by a single processor. It also seems that the graphics do not go through the GPU, but by the CPU.

    This requires an upgrade as it must serve as the showcase for your company.

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

  492. Andrea Rossi

    Thank you,
    A.R.

  494. Andrea Rossi

    Jeffry:
    Yes, we have now 220 patents between pending and in preparation; I am optimistic and think about 140 will be allowed, while 80 will be rejected; nevertheless, we’ll go on with the ones we do not think will be allowed, because in any case they are useful to make experience.

    The problem is in the speed of the connections: they who have slow connections, too much shared, unavoidably must be patient: the information arrives, but slowly.
    I have been informed by a Readre that through Chrome the situation is eased. Obviously the problem does not exist with good connections.
    We cannot impoverish the content, because of our business necessities.

    Hello Dr . Rossi, a prestigious Italian newspaper has published an article that says: ” There is so much oil that we are forced to pay producers if they want someone to take away the barrels they extract.”
    Oil, in North Dakota the first case of negative price

    http://mobile.ilsole24ore.com/solemobile/main/art/finanza-e-mercati/2016-01-18/petrolio-north-dakota-primo-caso-prezzo-negativo–220727.shtml?uuid=ACXiqgCC&utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook

  502. Andrea Rossi

    Ing. Michelangelo De Meo:
    The article published on “Il Sole 24 Ore” is interesting, but the “negative price” is related to a limited amount of oil that contains too high percentage of sulfur to be allowed; it is a waste deriving from the extraction of good oil; when the amount of oil demanded from the market was very high respect the offer, this oil was diluted in the river of good oil, but now, with the river reduced to a small creek, this dilution is no more possible.
    The bad signal from this is that the global industrial manufacturing, transportation is still low: the economic rebounce on course is financial, not industrial and this is not good, because this means that, while rich financers become richer, the mass of working people becomes poorer. Industry, not finance, makes people lifes better.
    Unfortunately in this historic period finance prevails upon industry, to seek richness without working, but this way bubbles are produced instead of real things. Bubbles don’t feed. Oh, how much I hope to make jobs with the E-Cats!

    Hello Mr. Rossi,

    Following through your comments it seems to me that the quantity of problems to the 1 mw plant have considerably diminished in the last 2 months. Is that so (and I hope so)?

    Thank you for your wonderful work.

    Dear Robert,
    To efficiently transport electric power over long distances, it must be in the form of thousands of volts of alternating current(AC). You probably have seen power lines that have been broken in storms, drastically sparking and in some cases, if coming in contact with humans or property, can cause deaths or fires. To preserve the efficiency of transportation the voltage is only reduced to 110 or 220V when delivered to the user. however this high a level still can cause deaths or fires when it contacts objects. DC power however is typically used at 10s of volts and is much safer when contacted. Batteries are a good example of a source of DC power and as you know are much safer than the typical electrical outlets found in facilities.IMHO this would be taken in consideration when a certification for use is required for distribution of a device.

  512. Andrea Rossi

    Eernie1:
    Thank you from my Team. They are serious. As well as the (very few) persons that have been allowed to visit the plant. That’s all.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  513. Clark Roth

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    There is around again a sustain of the theory of the electron capture to explain the LENR.
    Did you change opinion about the electron capture, that in past was negative?
    Cheers,
    Clark Roth

  514. Andrea Rossi

    Clark Roth:
    To sustain that LENR can be explained by means of electron capture means to have understood nothing of nuclear physics, in general, and to understand nothing of LENR, in particular.
    It is time to speak clearly about these clowneries that, violating the most elementary principles of physics and being unsustainable under a mathematical point of view, can only let discredit on the field. To reconcile LENR with the QED and QD maybe possible, but with a very difficult study and with the alalysis of experimental data that must be eventually structured in advanced mathematical models. This is extremely difficult and cannot be substituted by stupidities that treat e.p. like balls in a pool.
    Electron capture happens only in atomic structures that have nothing to do with LENR.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  529. LookMoo

    Dear Rossi,

    Regarding the latest COP issues.

    You have previously underlined the importance of your control-system (the computer) for successfully maintaining a stable and controlled operation of the eCat..

    Did you adjust the operational parameters of your control-system to restore the operation back to normal… or was you just banking the reactor walls with a rubber hammer???

  530. Andrea Rossi

    LookMoo:
    I am devastated, you have discovered one of the foundamentals of our know how here: banging the reactors walls with a rubber hammer to restore their stability; now, what can I do? What can I do ? What can I do ? Who goes to the ownership to tell the news about this confidentiality breach ?
    Desperate Regards,
    A.R.

  531. Stephen

    Its good news that you managed to get the devices back to stability. It sounds like you are able to manage the parameters of these devices quite well which is a good sign I think for their robustness and controllability.

    Can you say if the change of efficiency is due to the reaction it self or some external factors such as the thermal performance of the overall device?

    Are all the units affected or is it still limited to certain modules?

    If it is the reaction it self perhaps it is a blessing in disguise: Since you mentioned you are recording the data from the device including maybe the gamma spectra perhaps this change in performance give you very valuable information regarding the reaction and yours and Norman Cook’s Hypothesis regarding Mössbauer nuclei and the Rossi effect and maybe your other theories and ideas. It has been asked elsewhere if the change in performance could be due to fuel exhaustion. Could it be that the changes are rather due to occasional low rate changes in the Catalyst rather than the fuel? Perhaps changes could occur due to occasional transmutations, Proton capture or maybe other more subtle nuclear affects that have an impact on the energy levels? If the Mössbauer nuclei are affected then maybe amount of source the energy is diminished, if the non Mössbauer nuclei responsible for the Rossi affect and low energy Gamma perhaps the conversion of this energy is less efficient. Then retuning allows a new but better balance. Either way I suppose the affect might be visible in any changes in the gamma spectra and may help inform the theory behind the process. Perhaps this data during changes in efficiency is very useful for refining and verifying to some extent your hypothesis and ideas.

    Perhaps I am speculating a bit much so please feel free to edit my comment if it covers points you prefer not to discuss at this time.

    Kind regards

    Stephen

    You wrote that after a long night fight you have assessed the lowering COP problem.
    Can you tell us if that means that the COP is back to normal, or were some other issues solved that were bothering you because of the decreasing COP?
    Can you define when you consider the test positive?
    Thanks and kind regards, Gerard

    Gerard McEk:
    The COP has slightly diminished its value, but we stopped the tendency to go lower, now it is stable.
    The test will be defined positive or negative when the 350 days of operation will have been completed.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  556. Dear Mr. Rossi,

    I have been following your work with great interest since 2011. You have inspired me to conduct 100’s of experiments in pursuit of LENR. I failed to produce any evidence of excess heating with light water and nickel electrolysis. Later, using information from the Lugano report fuel analysis, I had some experiments that seemed promising. The most promising was an experiment conducted in March of 2015, in which a COP of up to 1.5 was apparently achieved. Although I have not been able to reproduce this result, I thought you might find it of interest in terms of what might be achieved by an amateur inspired by your work.

    http://www.lenr-coldfusion.com/2015/04/16/experiment-generates-apparent-excess-heat/

    I’m eager to see the results of your 1MW plant operational test and to see how the E-Cat X continues to develop. Thank you to you and your team for advancing the field and inspiring so much interest and research into LENR.

    Best regards,
    Jack

    Thank you for the information related to your experiment.
    Warm Regards,

  558. Chris Beall

    Dr. Rossi,

    In the past you have strongly discouraged those who indicated a desire to invest your process. For example, on April 10, 2013, “I want not to play foot ball with the bones of the others. We sign contracts only with expert persons and corporations, perfectly aware of the fact that they are joining a warship, not a cruise ship. When we will be at a stage in which investments on us from unexpert persons will be safe, we will go public, respecting all the ethical, deontological and National laws.”

    On page http://ecat.com/contact of your new website, there is a Contact form with many possible areas on Interest listed; one of those is ‘Investment’. Do you feel that your process, and Leonardo Corporation’s rights to it, have reached the point where investment by ‘unexpert persons’ is now within the ethical realm?

  559. Andrea Rossi

    Chris Beall:
    Your question is not easy to be answered. I would say this: we must wait the completion of the tests on course; we are very close to an industrial product and we have an enormous potential, put in evidence by a portfolio in the order of billions, but we still must put a disclaimer: the final results could be positive or negative.
    Our ship is still a warship, not a cruise ship and who enters our ship must be fully aware that he is going to fight, not to make a cruise, and that the result of a fight could also end up with casualties. All the guys presently in our ship are perfectly aware of this. This having been said, I can slightly modify my motto this way:
    ” I want not to play foot ball with the bones of persons that are not professional American foot ball players”. By the way: Go Panthers!
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  560. M. Neumayer

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    First of all, congratulations for your US Patent, which is a very important achievement, considering that you have extemely strong enemies that did everything they could to forbid a patent to you, for many reasons. I read that you are building a big corporation and leading it to make a massive production of your E-Cats, assuming the tests on course will perform positively. I agree with this strategy of yours: I am sure you are the sole guy able to put in the battlefield the necessary determination to go through the hurdles that such an enterprise will encounter.
    You soon will meet substantial resistance against your endeavor.
    May the Force be with you, Andrea: never give up!
    Marino Neumayer

  561. Andrea Rossi

    M. Neumayer:
    Thank you for your kind encuragement. Let me put the situation in the field of the formal logic: the cases are two, either we will be able to make a product in the market, or not.
    In the second case ( we will not be able) all the issue will become not important, the battlefield will become a playgroung for children and I will retire.
    In the first case, ( we will be able ) the hurdles will become a substantial problem not for us, but for them who will put (and have put) hurdles along our path.

    Daniel G. Zavela

    …..Was this due to a change in the cell or fuel or is the E-Cat performing better than the original forecast? …..
    Andrea Rossi
    January 16th, 2016 at 2:50 PM

    Daniel G. Zavela:
    I expected that the charges could last more.

    Does this mean that, at least for now, smaller E-Cats have the best performance regarding lifespan/power ?

    That could mean that the structures in the reaction zones are damaged (or exhausted) progressively by the Rossi Effect, and that you must activate other zones in the reactor to migrate the Rossi Effect to other spots. In that case one option would be to abandon the fixed wafer, and introduce a kind of one-way ribbon-style-structured wafer.
    An alternative could be to use arrays, 2D or 3D, of conductive materials to feed or extract electric power to or from active zones in the powder, with whatever waveform that is fit for the condition of the active zone. Having a system to cool every single spot, with an array of partly isolated tubes feeding cold and extracting hot gasses, could be usefull too.

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

  571. Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Your statement, “So far, anyway, it has not necessary to change the charge” is remarkable! Originally you had forecast changing the charge every six months. This is a huge advance to go close to one year at “full power” on a single charge. Was this due to a change in the cell or fuel or is the E-Cat performing better than the original forecast? Huge maintenance cost savings and high reliability factor has been achieved by you and your team so far. :)

    Congratulations! Wishing you continued success and more great inspirations.

    Dr Rossi,

    you said your theoretical research is intensely being studied and
    answers will be given when you have a mathematical rigorous model.

    based on what you know today could you suggest that Pons and Fleischmann
    and Cold Fusion will be vindicated soon?

  574. Andrea Rossi

    Jerry Norcross:
    Our technology has nothing in common with the F&P experiment.
    They have the merit to have sparked the idea to obtain nuclear effects at low temperature, though: in this, we all are indebted with them, honestly.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  575. Tim

    Dr. Rossi:

    There are many applications that don’t require full power at all times.

    Can you run an Ecat at half power?

    10% Power

    If you are running at low power can you run longer before replacing the charge?

    Tim

  576. Alessandro Coppi

    Hi Andrea
    you defined the success of this technology with this words “Make Customers Earn Money” instead I believe that it in the first years, it will decrease the income of many people, and many workers will loose their work due the petroleum industry reduction.
    Do not you think that could be a great result also making true: “Make the world a better site to live”?
    Having available the fire from Nature made the worlld a better site to live for the mankind, having the “new fire” available, will make our earth, a site much more good.
    Will be the activities related with the employment of this technology that eventually allow someone to make money, if money as we know it now will exist in the future.

    Dr. Rossi, Oil prices fell below $30 dollars a barrel on Friday.
    It should stay there or go lower.
    If you sell a car, first you have to make every part. Then you have to put all the parts together to make a car.
    They do not make oil, God made the oil, and He gave it to them for Free.
    All they have to do is drill a hole and pump it out, millions of barrels a day,
    at a cost of 50 cents a barrel.
    I look forward to the day when we have 100% Electric Cars, maybe run on an E-Cat !
    They will be happy to sell oil for $5 dollars a barrel.

    Dear AR,
    New web site is excellent.
    A couple of points to look at:

    The new web site shows a blank space between ‘E-CAT THE NEW FIRE’ and ‘As Featured’
    I am using Firefox 43.0.3

    Under ECAT Technology it states
    Limitless: The current fuel for LENR, nickel + hydrogen, is nearly limitless, the most abundant metal and the most abundant gas on earth.

    But in ‘The Rossi Effect’ it states the fuel is Lithium.

    A successful outcome of your work will, as we all realise, have a profound influence on our world, and on New Year’s Eve you shared some happy thoughts. A successful outcome will also put you in a singular position.

    1. Could you perhaps share something about your own personal motivation for your steadfast work? (Some, perhaps most of us, seek fame, money and/or power; on the other hand, some of us are motivated by curiosity, self-realisation, the need to create,…)

    2. What would you like your long-term legacy to be; what would you like our great-grandchildren to remember?

    Best regards and wishes,

    Per Thomsen

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Will you be able to change the charge of the fuel,if not, will it jeopardise the 1 year test ?

    Kind Regards

    Toussaint François

  585. Andrea Rossi

    Toussaint:
    The charge, if necessary, can be changed, obviously delaying the term of the test end by the number of days necessary. We still have days spared of the allowed 400 days, so the validity of the test should not be compromised. So far, anyway, it has not necessary to change the charge.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Andrea,
    Can you give an update today, after the efficiency decrease of yesterday?
    Tobias

  589. Andrea Rossi

    Tobias:
    Time: 09.10 a.m. of Saturday Jan 16
    After a fighting night we assessed the problem.
    1 MW E-Cat: stable
    E-Cat X: still oprative and very promising.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  590. Kibbler

    Dr Andrea Rossi
    We understand that the leadership for the development of the E-Cat world production will be held by Leonardo Corporation: it clearly appears reading both http://www.leonardocorporation.com and http://www.andrea-rossi.com
    It is also pretty clear that you will be the CEO.
    Question: did you already organize the management team?
    Regards,
    Kibbler

  591. Andrea Rossi

    Kibbler:
    Yes, we already have set up the Team that will lead Leonardo Corporation, with women and men each of them belonging to the top level of her/his specialization.
    The management is composed by divisions covering manufacturing, sales, R&D, distribution, sales, legal, financial, PR. Yes, I will be the CEO, but there will be also a BOD under the control of the ownership.
    The whole is, obviously, under condition of F9, but the names are already there and each of the selected persons has already accepted the role that has been proposed.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  592. Repine

    Mr Rossi,
    You said that the 1 MW plant had a decrease of efficiency:
    1- are you preparing the ground for an escape?
    2- why did you spam the comment I sent you yesterday?
    3- when will you confess your technology does not work?
    Good bye
    Repine

  593. Andrea Rossi

    Repine:
    1- of course!
    2- because you insulted me and, worse than that, my Team. When somebody expresses negative feelings like you are doing with this comment of yours, they allow me a response, but when somebody insults us, there is nothing I can answer, therefore the publication becomes pointless. There are several blogs whose unique task is to insult us, I am sure you will find there all the hospitality you are longing for.
    3- When I will have evidence that it does not work.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  594. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted that you are working on the issue of the decrease in effective COP, possibly related to fuel exhaustion.

    My question is what can you change? I suggest that you would not change the charge of the reactor as that would be “starting over”.

    So am I correct that you are adjusting the control settings?

    If this is so, then the optimal control setting would be a function of fuel exhaustion? Or are there other non-control functions that you can change, such as operating temperature(s)?

  595. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    The lifespan of a charge depends on the integration of production, mass ( as you correctly say) and other complex factors.
    About the possibility to match the lifespan of a charge with the lifespan of other components, , I’d say that it is possible to make it with some approximation.
    I mean, all can be changed at the same time even if the componenst will not be exhausted in the same measure: this is surely possible.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  596. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Is the lifetime of the charge within the eCat reactor merely a function of the mass of the charge and the accumulated or total amount of energy released? By analogy, a gasoline tank has a fixed capacity of gasoline. The time over which the gasoline may be consumed is related to the mileage of the vehicle and the number of miles driven. However, the gasoline cannot be stored indefinitely, perhaps a year or so. Is there a similar limitation in the eCat reactor?

    In your “dream” about using an eCat X reactor to power a streetlight, the possible limitation I see is the lifetime of the LED (around 60,000 hours of operation) and the lifetime of the eCat X unit, i.e., the refueling schedule. Can the eCat X refueling interval be matched to the streetlight lifetime? Would this be done by just adding more charge or are there other issues with reactor lifetime?

  597. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    There is not necessity to change the charge, so far, because the efficiency is not below the acceptable limit.
    As for the remaining questions, I am sorry, but they are related to confidential issues.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  598. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Do you believe the current decrease in COP is due to fuel exhaustion?

  599. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    I am here to work on it: yes, your hypothesis can be correct.
    Warm regards
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,

    All this talk about electric cars! About time… Made me reminisce about a few things …

    When you and I worked on some issues with Craig C @ LTI we talked about some solutions that would help improve issues with Wikipedia … and now you and your web team have done it! Your website is elegant in resolving the history of Petroldragon and related history, and I congratulate you on achieving this important milestone towards (world domination? ha ha ha) success!

    Regarding electric cars, I also previously shared with you my project in 1977 where I took a very pretty 1969 Fiat Sport Coupe with a blown engine, and using plans from Popular Science and a army surplus jet engine starter motor that I rewound as a series motor(15hp) along with 6 golf cart batteries and $2172.08 in cash .. I put together a working plug in electric car that went 43 mph, in less than six months.

    I can’t wait to do it again in 2016 or 2017 with an E-Cat X power supply!

    Thank you for the joy you bring in our imaginative lives where we can see now the Nautilus that Jules Verne wrote about, or the space ships in the Skylark science fiction/space opera series by E. E. “Doc” Smith, or in the tales from Marvel about Iron Man, or even Ringworld by Larry Niven. All of these become possible during the next 5 to 100 years, utterly incredible, if even still science fiction.

    Since I spent my entire career making the software I read about in over 4000 science fiction books come true, I know that science fiction is in many ways a reality today, in fact, I can’t find any scifi better than your web site!

    Again, just saying thank you and congratulations …

    Tom

  607. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Andrea,

    A good understanding of theory is regarded as an important basis for new creations.

    At school we first had to learn the theory, and then came the exercises and practicals.

    Your invention seems to have gone the other way.

    I believe that you have gained a lot of intuitive understanding of things by working with materials, alternating with studying theory.

    Long before there is a theory or evidence, there is intuition.

    Does your intuition tell you that the E-Cat X makes the Carnot cycle obsolete for electricity production ? What I mean is that the electric power output and the thermal power output are in the same order of magnitude.

    I that is the case, you could also answer with “Electric Regards”.

    Kind Regards,

    Koen

  608. Andrea Rossi

    Koen Vandewalle:
    Things are more difficult than appears.
    Thank you for your insight.
    About your questions, it is too soon to answer.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  609. Luther Mayher

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    As we can see, you are making a strong work also from the theoretical side. Few have understood that the theoretical hurdles you are encountering together with Prof Cook are intrinsic in the matter and that you are structuring yourself for the task, as you always do. If somebody will be able to write a solid theory, that somebody is Cook and you.
    As well as you have been the first in the technology, you will be the first in the theory. Few have understood this, but I net on this.
    God bless you
    Luther

  610. Dear Andrea,
    Thank you for your detailed answer to my earlier criticism of one aspect of Cook’s presentation. I want to make two additional points concerning this topic.

    1) Concerning your answer to Peter Forsberg. Philosophical interpretation of quantum mechanics aside, QM and QED are well-defined mathematical recipes (and in some sense theories) for calculating numerical results. Although I do not personally know any of them, I am sure that there are people in the world who can perform practical calculations in QED and QM. In cases where there is only a single particle or quantum involved (or playing the primary role), I am certain that there are well-defined answers to the questions you are asking and people in existence who can find them. The only issue is to find the people with relevant expertise. Quantum mechanical many-body phenomena are another story. There the level of difficulty can be substantially higher, depending on the case.

    2) Considering a gamma decay chain of a nuclear excited state, even though many of the transitions are much less than 1 MeV energy as pointed out in Norman Cook’s slides, I think that some of them are anyway larger than 100 keV. Assuming that this is the case, you might already now be able to disprove this model by just considering the fact that outside the E-cat, no radiation above background is detected. I am not able to give a precise numerical answer because I do not know exactly the material and thickness of the reactor wall, but I would guess that this is the case, also remembering that the power of the E-cat is very high in comparison to typical radioactive sources. High power output means that even if only a very small fraction of the output energy occurs as quanta that can penetrate the wall, significant radiation counts would then be detected outside the wall. My point is that perhaps you do not need to go to the trouble of trying to measure the gamma ray spectrum inside the reactor, because it might be possible to rule the model out already based on experimental data that you already have (because you know the properties of the reactor wall and geometry precisely).

    Of course, measuring the gamma spectrum inside the reactor would also be nice because all measurements increase knowledge, but I would think that accurately measuring the isotope ratios of fuel and ash would shed more light to the problem. Those were measured in the Lugano report, I know, but the results especially concerning nickel transmutation were partly “impossible”, probably due to incomplete sampling, as has been discussed earlier, therefore detailed conclusions were not possible to be drawn from them.

    best regards, /pekka

  611. Andrea Rossi

    Pekka Janhunen:
    Thank you for your insight.
    As I said, we ( Prof Cook and I) must make a hard work based on the data recording and mathematical evaluation before adding anything about this issue. At the state of the art we are in, every discussion would be useless chattering and any insight , like yours, can be either correct or not from our point of view.
    When and if we will be able to substantiate our idea of theory with solid physical and mathematical evidence, we will publish what we have to.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  612. Brokeeper

    Dear Andria,

    With your response to Hergen, you describe a 20KW E-Cat X device the size of a 20 cigarette packet at approxamitely ¾ lb, are you then able to produce individual 1KW E-Cat X units the size of one cigarette? If so, are twenty cigarette size devices stacked to configure about the size of one cigarette package or are you speaking of a single 20KW unit (you mentioned manufacturing 1KW units to optimize production/assembly costs)? Or, for confirmation, did you mean to say twenty cigarette packages (1KW each) stacked to configure the size of a cigarette carton?

    Either way this is a staggering leap of achievement for energy (heat/electricity) per device volume density. The implications of the number of its applications is now an order of magnetude for any size.

    With no end in site of of E-cat X density/ volume evolution, I am also a little concerned about the white elephant standing in the middle of the room (wearing sunglasses) no one really wants to talk about – the wrong-hands-use security. Any thoughts on this issue?
    With much respect,
    Brokeeper

  613. Andrea Rossi

    Brokeeper:
    All the question of your comment cannot be answered before a preliminar series of tests has been completed. To answer I should have to release a description that at the moment is totally premature.

  617. Joseph Fine

    Andrea Rossi,

    Can you comment on any aspects of the Electric E-Cat X energy production?

    That is:

    1) Is the electric E-Cat X ‘generator’ subject to the usual Carnot efficiency formulas: (heat source @ T-hot and heat sink @ T-cold)?

    2) Is the ‘T-hot’ heat source temperature measured at the E-Cat thermal input or from the E-Cat thermal output?

    3) Does the electric E-Cat X use a ‘familiar’ heat transfer fluid? e.g. water, super-critical CO2, gas cooling, electron flow?

    4) Can you use (a fraction of) the filtered current output as an input signal to the control system to control the operating point of the E-Cat (temperature, start/stop times for the self-sustain mode intervals, monitor power level changes etc.?

    5) Since the E-Cat may contain Tungsten, could you also call it an E-Cat W?

    Thermal Regards,

    Joseph Fine

  618. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    b) Do you anticipate at this point that the test will conclude in February?

    Frank Acland:
    10.30 of Friday Jan 15th:

    b) I can anticipate nothing.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  620. LookMoo

    Dear Rossi,

    I fully buy your concept that when the trial is over the COP figures needs to be checked and the double checked and then re-checked again before any information is released into the public.

    However, I don’t think the customers can care less. “He” will just go in to his accountant and ask.. “how much did we pay in 2014 and how much did we pay in 2015 for our power ????”.. the account needs like 5 min do give him a firm number. Even with the falling oil prices LENR should be competitive.

    Makes sense ??

  621. Andrea Rossi

    LookMoo:
    Got your point.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  622. Andrea Rossi

    Dr Peter Forsberg:
    Thanks to you for your attention; by the way: QED and QCD, as you know, are very complicated and many different interpretations of them have been theorized; therefore, the sustain given us from the interpretation made by Feynman is not enough to substantiate what we, Prof. Cook and I, are theorizing. Substantial experimental data and advanced mathematical models will be necessary for us to sustain a theory, and we are still not ready for that.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Whatever the final results of the test on course, as you call it, your dedication, your 16-18 hours of work per day, night and day, your passion, your constant endeavor, your focus have made of you an icon for many of us.
    If you will heve success, you will have merited it beyond any reasonable doubt.

  635. Dmitry Sutyagin

    Hello Sir Andrea,

    I have been following the development of multiple new energy systems for several years. Your system looks like one of the most promising and ready at the same time. I am a true fan of clean energy, an ex Greenpeace employee, and I ride an electric scooter. One of my dreams is to have everyone use exhaust-free transport. I also dream of building a flying house. Both dreams seem to be possible with the use of your work. I am very interested in the possibility of integration of E-Cat X in an electric vehicle. I have several questions:
    1. What is the maximum electricity to heat ratio that a E-cat X module scaled to ~15KW can produce currently?
    2. What will be the electrical COP with such ratio?
    3. Is output electricity close to standard DC or AC in a usable Voltage range, is it an amplified copy of the electrical input, or is chaotic and requires a use of a filtering / rectification circuitry?
    4. Can variable load be applied directly to the output electricity circuit (if any) or this electricity can only be collected with a constant or very specific variable resistance to keep E-Cat X stable?
    5. Will you be interested in a prototype of an E-Cat X powered 10-15KW electric scooter? If so, how could I contact you further regarding this topic?

  636. Andrea Rossi

    Dmitry Sutyagin:
    1- the situation is not mature to give these data
    2- same as above
    3- the output electricity will be ready for the AC plug, or DC plug if available. Always F9!
    4- can
    5- no. We do have scooters, just in case.
    Thank you for your kind attention; you have surely noticed that I have edited your comment eliminating the names of our Competitors you compared to us: this is because I never comment anything about our Competitors.

    Giusy Francesconi:
    It is a courtesy of NASA, from the collection of the impressive photos of the Universe taken from the space. I followed the suggestion of a Reader, who emailed to me that the former cover, showing the part of emisphere of the Earth where Europe is, could offend the Readers of the other parts of the world: to offend nobody I asked the special website Team to put galaxies instead. This photo has been chosen being the biggest known “fusion” (albeit not quite cold): a fusion between two galaxies. I am glad you liked it.

    Many thanks to you and Norman Cook for sharing the presentation and also for your considered response to Pekka Janhunen’s very interesting question. I think what ever the result is the results of your current test looks to be becoming more and more interesting.

    I have a few small questions regarding the possibility to experimentally evaluate these ideas, if I may.

    1. Are you already able to probe the internal environment of your e-cats to detect and record the low level energy gamma spectrum?
    2. If so would this be able to give you sufficient frequency resolution and other information to evaluate this theory?
    3. If not would it be possible to develop a device that includes a probe of this kind of gamma spectrum information from the wafer with out disrupting to much the process. Or would the heat and environment prohibit this.
    4. Could a e-cat or e-cat X device allow small well characterised samples to be easily included and extracted from the wafer so that samples with different materials, and specific elements and isotopes as well as with materials with different nano structures or surface configurations?
    5. If not could such a device be developed, or would such an addition disrupt the process to the extent that it would not provide useful information.

    All the best for your continued success.
    Stephen

  642. Andrea Rossi

    Stephen:
    1- yes

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I really appreciated the response of you and Prof. Cook to the serious comment of Pekka Janhunen regarding the publication of Norman Cook on Ecatworld.
    The paper you and Prof. Cook are writing will be very important, I understand.
    Crystal

  653. Andrea Rossi

    Crystal:
    Thank you for your attention. The paper we are working upon will be published only if with the experimental data and an advanced mathematical structure we will be able to make a theoretical model that can reconciliate all the experimental data. Until we will be able to do that, observations like the one in the comment of Pekka Janhunen, a very serious person, will have to be considered correct. This is a dialectic dynamic between actuality and potentiality.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  654. Peter Forsberg

    Dear Andrea,

    Do I understand what you just said to Pekka Janhunen correctly? Did you just say that the ECat perhaps violates the first law of thermodynamics?

    Best Regards

    Peter

  655. Dear Andrea,
    Frank Acland gave a link to slides of Norman Cook (53 slides). It seems to me that the idea presented in the slides is wrong, because it would break energy conservation. Consider page 25 of the slides. The gamma photon can indeed excite nucleus 2 from state E5 to state E6 if the frequencies match, but only if the nucleus originally exists in state E5. This is not the case here because E5 is a short-lived excited state. While it is true that nucleus 2 can be thought to exist in all states virtually, thus also in state E5, by invoking the virtuality argument, also its excitement into E6 would be virtual, not real.
    The same thing can be seen in atomic physics. For example, the hydrogen atom has a large number of excited states, labelled by n, which lie closer to closer together as n increases. If a hydrogen atom originally exists in its ground state, one cannot produce a high n excited state by illuminating it with photons whose wavelength matches the transition between n-1 and n, say. Doing so would create energy out of nothing.
    regards, /pekka

  656. Andrea Rossi

    Pekka Janhunen:
    This answers to your comment arrived today at 2.51 a.m.
    Sorry for the late, but I wanted to discuss with Prof. Cook the answer and he is in Japan, so we had a fuse to wait for.
    Your argument is possibly right and it respects the common sense of classical physics.
    This is why we ( Prof. Norman Cook and me) have to sustain our theory on the base of the data of the experiments and a rigorous system of advanced mathematical models.
    Before we reach that level, you maybe correct and we wrong. Nevertheless, the quantum mechanical view of Feynman opens different perspectives. Feynman argument with regard to atomic (electron) physics is that all virtual states have a brief reality because of the uncertainty principle. Classically, all the excited states should not be real unless the necessary excitation energy is received from somewhere. Especially for nucleons, excitation energies of several MeV should be too high to allow the excited states to occur. But Feynman and the other developers of the QED have shown that “impossibly high energy ” excited states for electrons need to be included in the calculation of the probabilities of atomic states. The more virtual states that are included, the more accurate is the model result ( and that is why the QED is so accurate, but so hard to understand).
    Classically, that is crazy and in his books Feynman has made a point of saying that their QED results “erode common sense” (e.g. p. 119, QED: The strange theory of light and matter, 1985).
    That is to say, although the common sense conservation of energy tells us that the higher energy excited states should not affect the lower energy electron ( or nucleon) transitions, the quantum mechanical view that Feynman defends is that all of the virtual states are briefly “real” within the time constraints of the uncertainty principle.
    Generally, that means for nucleons that many higher energy states do exist simultaneously for a few femtoseconds ( lower energy nuclear excited states can exist for picoseconds or nanoseconds or even for milliseconds, but the principle is the same).
    Is Feynman correct to say that “nobody understands QM” (p.9)? Maybe not, but if the uncertainty principle can be used in that way, then brief violation of the conservation of energy is possible. The “expanded Mossbauer Effect” Prof. Norman Cook and I are working upon and is the base of the theory we are trying to complete, starts from the idea that, during the brief reality of the nuclear excited states, high energy gamma resonance can occur and can make the virtual state become real leading to real de-excitation.
    That might be said to be the occurrence of the violation of the conservation of energy via “virtual state excitation”.
    The inevitable prediction from the “expanded Mossbauer” hypothesys is that, during de-excitation, real gamma rays will be emitted from excited nuclear states and those rel gamma rays should match the gamma ray energies that are known from the conventional nuclear physics experiments.
    Low energy gamma ray datafrom inside the E-Cat should, therefore, tell us if the hypothesys is right or wrong.
    We need to go through a process of measurements and formulation of a mathematical structure that allows the integration of the effect in the principles of the QED and the QM.
    This having been said, we ( Prof. Norman Cook and me) are conscious of the fact that you could be right ( or, if you prefer, that you “probably” are right).
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Andrea, I like the new revamped site http://ecat.com/ very much!

    Some personal notes just to push your endurance to the limits…

    1- Just my 2-cent opinion about the image of Earth on landing page: it is nice and colourful and I know you like it, but I think it is too much unrealistic; the obviously exaggerated heights of mountains, united to the unreal colorization, transmit a sense of fakeness distracting me from the authoritativeness I’m expecting from the serious and scientifical content of the site: it would be ok for a site on comics, movies or, at least, geographical maps. What about some image of the planet taken from the space station??

    2- It would be important if you set up a method to alert readers when new content is added to pages; it can be done easily with automated newsletters: usually a message is automatically sent to subscribers whenever new or modified content is added to a page, very useful

    3- (this is for JONP site) Since people today usually have 1600 pixel wide screens, you could update the header image in JONP to that size, to fit it from left to right border

  658. Andrea Rossi

    Orsobubu:
    Besides: in these days we are continuing to update the website as a follow up of the corrections suggested to our Readers, so everyday, for at least a couple of weeks, the website will continue to be updated by the special team working on it that is receiving from me all your suggestions, most of which are correct.

    Dear Readers, the New Year is born, now it’s 00.00 a.m. of Jan 1st 2016 here inside the E-Cat X lab just next to the 1MW container in the customer’s plant. I’m alone and uncorking my California Korbel bottle to celebrate together with all of you this historical day. I’m so excited to pre-disclose here on JONP these very important technical details of the E-Cat X reactor and a thorough technical description of the fuel wafer not yet protected by my patent US 9,115,913 B1, complete with crucial unpublished sketches I will make now for the first time ever. These particulars will be described in the upcoming new patent application I will write and deposit soon.

    Dear friends, the 2015 gave us the US Patent, the 2016 will give us the E-Cat able to make heat and electricity. No more silly F9. No more annoying positive or negative. I will write here exactly what is the E-Cat X, what I want to do of it and what is my vision for its worldwide usage and diffusion. As a matter of fact, the perspective of the E-Cat X is huge. And here is the big new! Yes, the E-Cat X produces directly enormous electric power: you can see that if I unlock the screw of the outlet n.24 here in the Voltage Source n.33 and I touch

    ZZZZZZZZAPPP POWWW!!!!!!

    what would be the weight and the volume (perhaps liters) of a 20 kw e-cat x reactor?

    Thank you.

  667. Andrea Rossi

    Hergen:
    Ballpark numbers: like a 20 cigarette packet, while the weight could be 300-400 grams, plus the apparatus to use the energy, that is different depending on the use, the fluid, etc.

  668. Svein Henrik

    Dear Pekka, Mats and Andrea.
    Andrea, thank You. You show yourselves like a true gentleman.
    The E-cat-x technology may be a life saver for the el-car industry since before or later will even European politicians understand that changing the energy source of a car from a petrol tank on the road to å coal powerplant besides the road is not a big achievement. When changing from a energy source to another, of environmental reasons, the environmental pollution is to be monitored on a marginal basis.
    The dynamic lows for cars, trucks and buses are the same. Thereof will all road traffic be of interest for E-Cat-X technology. The benefits of selleing energy to the grid when not in traffic will be different but still of interest.
    Best regards, Svein Henrik.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    In Sweden has been started the installation of the world biggest electric power generator that uses waves energy to produce electricity. It is being installed in the western coast of Sweden; manufactured by Seabased AB and operated by Sotenas Wave Energy, it works my means of the pull-push force made by the up-down movement of the waves, such force being exploited by means of a buoys system.
    I think this can be of interest for the readers of this blog.

    Regards,
    Guy

  678. Andrea Rossi

    Guy:
    Thank you for your attention: complete and light is an oxymoron. We wanted to make a website that is able to make a complete presentation of the E-Cat, with an exhaustive description of our origins, of our present and of our strategy for the future; it was necessary to enrich it with photographies, drawings and give a complete information, within the limits of the field of non confidential information. All this would have not been possible by means of a “lighter” website. I understand that it is heavy for them who have not a fast connection, but I think that with patience also they will be able to have the proper information, better than a fast incomplete information.
    Good is better than fast.

  683. Dear Svein Henrik, Andrea Rossi,

    It seems to me that Svein Henrik’s numbers (20 kW power, 5 kWh battery) are correct and relevant. The average power consumption of a car is surprisingly low and it is much less than the peak power of the engine.

    For example, if a car consumes 6 litres of gasoline per 100 km, if it drives at constant 100 km/h speed and if one assumes that the efficiency of the gasoline engine is 30% (efficiency of conversion of thermal energy to mechanical energy), then the mechanical power of the engine is 0.3*0.77*6*45e6/3600=17.3 kW. Here 0.77 is gasoline density (g/cm3), 45e6 is gasoline’s energy density (J/kg) and 3600 is number of seconds in hour.

    Battery size 5 kWh is enough to climb a hill of about 1 km high: the potential energy of the 1500 kg car at the top of the hill is 1500*9.81*1e3=15 MJ=4 kWh.

    In conclusion, it seems to me that a 20 kW_el E-cat plus 5 kWh battery would be an adequate power system for a normal family car.

    regards, /pekka

  684. Andrea Rossi

    Pekka Janhunen:
    Yes, I think you and Svein Henrik are right and I was wrong.
    This issue is worth to be studied and I have been stupid to give an answer without the necessary information.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  685. Svein Henrik

    Hello Andrea.
    The new TESLA-X weights nearly 2,3 tons. It has a battery capacity of 90kWh, witch gives it a range of 450km. This makes a average power consumption of 18kw at a average speed of 90km/h for 5 hours. Then it needs a night with recharging from the grid.
    The new ROSSE-CAT-X, with a 20kW E-Cat-X power pack and a smaller battery will be much lighter and may be cheaper. After the tour it does not need recharging and may go on for a far longer trip. Connected to the grid for 20 hour a day it will deliver 400kwh. This will be 12000kwh a month and may make money enough to pay for the lease of the car and the electric bill of the owners house.
    The recharge of the TESLA produce 90kg CO2 within a coal fired powerplant. The drive had then made about the same emission of CO2 as a Cadillac CTS will do.
    The ROSSE-CAT-X will reduce the emission from the same plant by 400kg a day, 144 tons of CO2 a year. This makes Rossi to an inventor equal to Tesla.

  702. Tom Conover

    Hello Andrea,

    The concept of getting the domestic certification completed, and then possibly providing a core product to licencees who can provide new dimensions to the uses for your technology, sounds like a fabulous option for your company! Leveraging distribution channels and collecting royalties could help to overcome some of the challenges down the road for you. So many products are possible that I am sure that at least 2000 items could be listed … more than any single company could possibly handle!

    With only 48 or 49 days on the countdown remaining, do you have more than 10 or less than 10 days available for down time left to use?

    Did the E-Cat X regain stability this afternoon I hope? (I can’t wait to see one in my home next year perhaps!)

    Thank you

    Hello Andrea
    A electrical E-cat-x-car need 20kW to drive at a speed of 100km/h and a battery of 5kWh to acceleration and uphill. I look forward to see such a car possible to be connected to the grid at my house and by my workshop for electricity production when not in use on the road. When do you anticipate it may be on the marked?
    Best regards
    Svein Henrik

  705. Andrea Rossi

    Svein Henrik:
    Waiting for a cristal ball, just review your numbers, considering that they are meaningless if you do not refer them to the mass you have to move. For the mass od a regular average car, which is about 1.5 tons, 20 kW of power are enough to go barely at a speed of 10 mph ( 16 km/h). Moreless.

    Salve, probabilmente il mio quesito avrà ragione di essere preso per una barzelletta, se è così mi scuso.
    L’efficienza delle pompe di calore ha tranquillamente raggiunto livelli attorno al 4, ma anche 6, generatori termoelettrici credo possano avere efficienze superiori a 0,3 (forse sbaglio?) io ne deduco, ma sono ignorante e certamente avrò sparato una stupidaggine, che si può estrarre energia elettrica dalla temperatura ambientale, e che la quantità dipende solo dal numero dei passaggi e dalle dimensioni degli apparecchi e dello scambio termico, che lei sappia esistono sperimentazioni a riguardo?
    Grazie, Andrea.

  707. Andrea Rossi

    Andrea:
    In a nutshell, you are asking if it is possible extract higher temperature from room temperature recycling the water in the loop of a heat pump or a thermoelectric heater.
    Obviously not: in a heat exchanger you cannot have in the secondary loop a T superior to the primary loop, whatever the retention time along the heat exchange surface. Naturally you could increase the T in the secondary circuit by an increase of its pressure, but this would happen at a high cost and in this case the primary becomes a coolant instead of a heater.
    Warm Regards,

I also read on the beautiful book of Vessela Nikolova “Ecat, the new fire” that ENI has used the heritage of your patent issued on 1978 to make oil from organic wastes. Practically, ENI is using a technology that has been born by your ( now expired) patent you filed in 1978, granted in 1979, expired in 1998.

  730. Janne

    Dear Andrea,

    You have in the past been somewhat unclear on whether the results of the 1 MW test (F9) would be published for the general public. However, Mats Lewan looks to be quite confident that they will, as his whole New Energy World Symposium seems predicated on this ‘fact’. Any comment?

    Best Regards,

    Janne

  731. Andrea Rossi

    Janne:
    I do not know when and in which measure the results of the test on course will be published, also because this issue does not depend only on me and it is conditioned to when the test will be completed. The results, anyway, in some measure will be published, positive or negative as they might be.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Dr. Rossi

    The anticipation is electric!
    We vibrate with excitement.
    Soon all will change…
    with E-Cat X!

    I’m picturing a crowd chanting this loudly with a staccato E-Cat-X!.

    Long time listener, first time caller. Thank you for all you do.

    Would you consider a manufacturing facility in Canada? Our dollar is heavily discounted and we have many areas in the West which offer excellent opportunities for affordable land and construction. Certainly you will handle your own power fairly quickly. As a producer of power you will find our public utility has a good program for purchasing power from industrial power suppliers. With a robust distribution system to the North American grid, British Columbia is ideally suited for your facility. Kindly contact me at the supplied email address if you would like to receive a package detailing presently available locations which may suit your purpose.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    For a man with so much responsibility and ongoing projects, you seem to have a lot of time to spend answering questions on the Internet. May I ask how you manage to do that?

  741. Andrea Rossi

    TYY:
    Presently I work 18 hours per day, so I can find the time to answer to our Readers. It takes about half an hour per day, while it is not rare that from our Readers arrive ideas that take hours to think about, but that enters in the field of the R&D. The time spent to read and answer to our Readers is enormously worth: this blog for me is an antenna, a multipurpose antenna.
    By the way, to remain on the subject: your comment is the number 27 000 of this blog. Thank you!

  744. Andreas Moraitis

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Some people might hesitate to replace their complete heating system by an entirely new technology. On the other hand, many of them use electric radiators as auxiliary heat sources if appropriate (I have one in my basement which I use in winter, for example). So maybe an E-Cat powered radiator would be a good idea. A device that resembles something that people already know might be easier to market, and if it worked as expected it would lower the reservations about a more comprehensive investment.

    Best regards,
    Andreas Moraitis

    Dear mr Rosssi,

    My apologies If you have answerred the following question before, but I Wonder:

    A) will the customer be able to buy the plant or
    B) buy heat on a extended contractual period If the test is successful?

  752. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    I am very pleased to read that you are considering (according the answer you gave to S) supplying Ecats also as a sub part for an apparatus that suppliers may want to make.
    This opens a huge market! Just imagen: supplying these to General Electric/Rolls Royce for their turbo fans, or BMW for the supply of their car motors! You can think of millions of applications!
    Just some questions about this, assuming F9.
    1. Do you believe it will be possible to make the Ecat (or more than one) in any demanded shape in the future? (E.g. Ball-, flat-, cube-, cylindrical with a hole in it- shaped?)
    2. Is there a difference regarding the shape flexibility between Ecat and Ecat X?
    3. Would you think there is any power limit in any direction. In other words: Can Ecats be build from e.g. 1 micro watt to a 1 Tera watt in the future?
    4. If the world switches to Ecats, do you think there any limit in the supply of materials/fuel for the coming 1 thousand years for making/using the Ecat?

    Thanks and kind regards,
    Gerard McEk

  753. Andrea Rossi

    Dear Andrea,

    Your answer to S. is interesting. If other companies are able to develop products around your core technology, it would help to speed up the diffusion of E-Cat products. Does this signal an openness by Leonardo Corp. to licensing the E-Cat?

    Many thanks,

    Dr. Rossi, I do not understand the Post of Eernie1 J.9 at 12:50P
    I understand your response even less.

    Eernie1 said, the E-Cat produces DC power.
    He said this is good because it will eliminate accidental electrocutions.
    The same thing Edison said !
    Also it will be easier to get Certification, for DC power.
    My knowledge of electricity is limed to, you put the plug in the wall and the Device works.
    Is he saying you provide DC power to the home to provide electricity for the Home, and you are saying, You got a point.
    Will a Home run on DC power ?

    Dear Andrea,
    Your strategy will be only to produce E-Cats as final products, ready to go on the shelves, or also to produce E-Cats conceived as modules for heat generation destined to be used from other manufacturers to make any other product independently from you?
    Thank you for your patience,

    Dear Andrea,

    Understandably, a portion of the heat may be drawn off when you turn on the electricity output, but it is possible that the electrical power is in fact an addition to the overall output of the system. So my question is this…

    Is it true or false that the E-Cat X (HEAT Kw + ELECTRICITY Kw) > E-Cat X (HEAT Kw)?

    Godspeed and thank you,

    Tom

  777. eernie1

    Dear Andrea,
    Because your device produces DC power and can be located near the point of use, the reason for mainly using high voltage AC power(efficiency of transport through long distances) is no longer valid. Edison wanted to provide DC power because of two reasons. It could be provided and used in the form of relatively low voltage thus eliminating accidental electrocutions and the cost of insulation of cables and connections was much lower. However the cost of providing power to the end user because of losses, made DC power not the preferred form of use. One other advantage of DC is the decrease in the number of electric fires in facilities that result in fatalities and large replacement costs of destroyed assets.
    Since there are positive safety factors involved in the use of DC, this should encourage faster certification of your device if only as an electric power provider.
    Safety regards.

  778. Andrea Rossi

    Eernie1:
    You got a point.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  779. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Andrea,

    Can you tell if your current version of E-Cat-X is more a proof-of-concept version, or a final and optimized version ?

    I Explain: E-Cat-X was created after a “vision”. One way to produce a prototype, is that you start from a working device, and modify this existing device into something new. Just as the first cars looked like carriages without horses.

    Now if you want to produce electricity directly with the E-Cat-X, it seems probable that you need a completely different construction than the E-Cat which works via a heat exchanger.

    In that case, it seems likely to me that there are new “visions” coming to use the Rossi-effect optimal.

    A potentially annoying side effect is that every revolutionary improvement, outclassed the previous versions. This creates the problem that products never reach the market. This is the phenomenon why many people from my parents’ generation never finally stepped into the digital world: the computer that is in the shop, will be obsolete next year, so we’ll wait. They keep waiting.

    For investors, this is also important. I wonder if Apple would ever have sold one I-device if they had announced the schedule for releases 2 to 6.

    With your patent, you have an exclusive right to the core operation of the Rossi-effect.

    This means that all visionary improvements need to go exclusively by the bottleneck of a single development team.

    Parallel teams or branches are unprofitable because of the visionary character of a single team. It would be silly to design Carnot machines with generators with the Rossi-effect as a power source, if we know E-Cat-X is in development and may produce profitable electricity.

    This state of affairs should not be seen as competition but is a choking or crippling interaction of different ideas that hinder each other’s breakthrough.

    In this way, businessmen want to invest when the visions of the inventors have stopped. Or when it is at least clear how much return there can be from a certain generation of products.
    Finished products have market value. This is so for the majority of what is out there.

    Van Gogh never sold his paintings for millions. Jesus, as a man, has never known Christianity. They were however in their lives no less ingenious than afterwards.

    Of all the new and important products that are actually on the market, there is one marketing-aspect that takes precedence over everything: the release date.

    Given the importance of the E-Cat technology, I am worried that there was never announced a release date. I fear that it still could take a very long time before this technology will be able to take its rightful place in the market.

    I hope you will forgive me this critical remark. The ideal man is still not getting off the drawing board. Meanwhile, there are already around seven billion who need energy.

    Around the E-Cat is a lot of complexity and risk. Also risks which are still impossible to estimate. I have the impression that this is an obstacle that must be overcome. I’m not sure that capitalism and known business models will bring down that obstacle.

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

  780. Andrea Rossi

    Koen Vandewalle:
    Thank you for your insight.
    The E-Cat X is still a prototype subject to R&D before aquiring the status of product.
    When a product is ready, it goes to the market independently from what is on course in the R&D section.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  783. Giuliano Bettini

    Dear Andrea,
    from the electronic engineering point of view the electric E-Cat X is an amazing machine.
    A million dollar question, if you can. If in a nuclear device it is relatively easy to interpret the energy production (ie: with the disappearance of mass), the production of electrical energy to which kind of phenomenon can be attributed?
    Just as an example, in the E-Cat X. :)
    I mean: loosely speaking, e. m. fields? particle production? inexplicable phenomena? what?
    Electric regards,
    Giuliano Bettini.

  784. Andrea Rossi

    Giuliano Bettini:
    This is exactly the issue our theoretical research is focused upon. The answers will be given after I will have a mathematical rigorous model.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  785. Ian Walker

    Dear Andrea Rossi

    I belated but Happy New Year to you.

    I post the following to inform others more than your self and staff, who I think is more than aware of such things.

    For the record, one way competitors gain confidential information is by the process of goading. So a competitor, and this includes those calling for open source. Interestingly competitors in a market will often fund and support open source, and arrange for those in their employ to take positions of influence in an open source community to steer it to their own ends.

    Competitors will seek to gain information via:
    1) Saying the product is a scam.
    2) Or they may say that the confidential information has to be released for the public good so that all can benefit.
    3) Or they may use the trick of saying the patent protection is slowing things down.

    Or a plethora of other goads, you can tell it is a goad by how harsh it is.

    Competitors can do this through:
    a) Their own actions
    b) Paid intermediaries
    c) Winding up an influenced intermediary
    d) Journalists who are fed a story
    e) Discontented former partners or employees.

    The above is just a sample of the shenanigans we have all seen used in the past few years.

    I am sure both yourself and your Great Team are aware of all these intricacies and more.

    I trust you and all the other involved in this endeavour are doing the best they can; and that we will get there or not F9, when we do and not before. Sometimes the interminable queries of “Are we there yet?” from the children in back is quite amusing.

    That said, remember your Pareto principle, that it will never be perfect, and that it does not always need to be so, you work toward perfection, but sometimes you are just polishing and not really working; in the end the work is done when you say it is.

    Kind Regards Ian Walker

  787. Terence Woodbine

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    After your US Patent publication many replications have been made of your apparatus by scientists and Physics institutes from all the world: Parkhomov ( Russia), China Atomic Institute ( Popular Republic of China), Brillouin ( they copied your Hot Cat and made a third party validtion with the presence of MIT Professors in the Capitol Hill of Washington DC USA); some attempts of replication have been unsuccessful.
    Which do you think are the best replications made so far?
    I wish you that in the year 2016 we’ll see the E-Cats off the shelf:
    Godspeed,
    Terence

  788. Andrea Rossi

    Terence Woodbine:
    I prefer not to comment the replications, and the work of the competitors either. This answers also to other comments I received on the matter.
    I share your wish.
    Warm Regards,

  789. Klas L

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    After reading the first article on E-Cat in Ny Teknik, January 20th 2011, I
    became interested.
    After hearing you live present Hot Cat first time in Zurich I became convinced
    but also quite unsure about the time you would need to make a real product.

    How do you yourself rate your progress after that compared to your
    expectations at that time?(scale 1-10)

    Regarding ecat.com the last progress is impressive, just one comment :
    You and I are born the same year and I often have to use the zoom function
    on my android tablet (Samsung) to read text.
    This works fine on rossilivecat and most other sites but not yet on ecat.com.

    Finally, let us all hope that the cats behave well also the remaining weeks to go.

    Best regards
    Klas L

  790. Andrea Rossi

    Klas L:
    Thank you for your attention.
    I rate our progress 7 for every year; we could have an exponential raise to 10 this year , if the E-Cat X will continue like it is working now.
    About the new website http://www.ecat.com it is heavy, but it must be heavy, to be nice and complete; if the connection is not fast, it takes patience to scroll through it. We are trying to eliminate something to make it slimmer, but it is not easy without touching the quality.
    Thank you also for the suggestion, though.

  793. Dear Andrea.

    AA and AAA batteries are suitably encased and this makes it safe and convenient for users to get them to specialised handlers for recycling when they are depleted of charge. In some places there are dedicated bins in supermarkets for this activity. They are also small so that there is no difficulty in transporting them to these bins. A very sensible ,safe and convenient system!

    Since your E-Cat products seem to use a wafer construction, and of some size I might add, would you say that these will be ,like the batteries, suitably encased so as to emulate the system described above, with no worries about personal contamination during transport to a recycling portal?

    Have you thoroughly investigated the processes that various countries have instituted so that safe and easy disposal of said wafers can take place by the users themselves rather than having to make somewhat irksome efforts to get them to some recycling factory? Since you hope to go worldwide with your products ,I think that it might be astute of you to carry out such research.

    I know that this potential problem is still some way off in the future but I think that now is the time to try to button this up.
    What do you think?

    A happy New Year to you and all your hard-working team.

    Very best wishes. Jean Pierre

    Your considerations are right; we have resolved the issue related to the change of the charges and to the related safety very well.

  795. WaltC

    Just to add some data to the “ecat.com” scrolling issue:

    – On Firefox, the performance is very bad. If I scroll down, it “stutters” badly (pauses for a full second, displays a couple of inches of new page, pauses a second, etc.). This happens whether I scroll down, or scroll back up (where everything should already be in the cache).
    – On IE, it scrolls as smooth as butter. No pauses at all.
    – On Chrome, it stutters, but not as bad as on firefox (1/4 second pauses, instead of 1 second).

    I’m in the US (New Mexico), I tried it on 2 machines (Win7 and Win10) and the results were the same.

  799. Dear Andrea, Alessandro Coppi,
    Regarding the website, people speculated at e-catworld.com that since many/most/all(?) Europeans had problems scrolling the window on ecat.com. Maybe the problem is that it does server-side rendering at some point and the server is only in USA. The page should be arranged so that it makes no requests to the server side if the user just scrolls the page, because such requests take time in case the server is geographically far away. A person who tests it on the same continent then the server may not see a problem.

    Dear mr. Rossi,

    You say the “pressure indicated in the data sheet of http://www.ecat.com is the hydraulic gauge pressure of the water pump that feeds the water to the E-Cats”

    I would think a potential customer also would like to know the maximum and normal operating pressure at the delivery point from your plant. Which must be a pressure range Below your stated feed pressure above.

    Should not this be in your datasheet also?

    Regards
    Lande

  807. alessandro Coppi

    Hi Andrea,
    with regard to the new web site ecat.com as already said Xavier, is nearly unusable, the huge amount of interesting contents risk to be unreachable, because the web site is not responsive, and does not depend from the web server, but probably on some too much widgets that affect the rendering.
    Take in account the history of the galleon Regalskeppet Vasa.
    My humble opinion is that a content effective corporate web site should not have graphical effects or too many scrolling menu, but a basic style.

    Tim,

    There are a couple of common sayings in the Engineering world

    a. “Better is the enemy of good enough”
    b. “Time to shoot all the engineers and get into production”

    Both relate to the tendency of engineers to make their “widget” perfect. I agree that something is better than nothing and the wait for a consumer system is surely frustrating.

    But this system is different in that, if true and realizable, it will be revolutionary. Because of this and other reasons, there are many enemies who would like to see the system suppressed if not banished. Because of this, the deployment of a consumer class of eCat systems must be flawless. There will be no second chance to make a first impression.

  819. Dan C.

    Dear Andrea,

    To Gerard McEk: you posted-

    “The issues that make a test successful are many, complex and interdependent: safety, efficiency, duration in time, reliability, stability, competetivity, firmness to be industrialized, robustness, etc, etc. Safety, obviously, is first.”

    These details are all things a potential customer would be interested in.
    Are all these things being monitored and analyzed by the independent Referee and will they be used for that purpose. And will the referee provide an overall COP of the 1MW plant.(F9 of course)

    Also, will this data collection be used in the certification of the domestic E-Cat.

    Hello Andrea,

    Concerning your website it looks great & sleek.

    The server hosting does quickly delivers the content and the website & the server are IPv6 ready.
    So you are ready for the future…

    On the other hand there are some issues concerning the rendering of the website.
    If you attempt to scroll the website from top to bottom you will notice that the scrolling is very rough (even on a top end PC, tested with Firefox or Microsoft Edge)
    I think it is related to the CMS that your webdesigners are using. Just compare the vertical scrolling with some other websites, you will understand what I mean…

    There are also another issues when trying to browse the website from a mobile device (do not neglect this because a lot of users are browsing the web with their smartphones & tablets nowadays). Here there are some auto resizing issues concerning images. Also some text blocks are misplaced and unreadable even in landscape mode.

    I hope this helps.

    I agree that it would be desirable to have the E-cat inside, but getting it sooner would be a great trade off for many people. Note that many things are certified for outside use only. This includes electrical generators, many types of propane heaters and barque grills. I have been on the waiting list for years, and if putting it outside would let me get it sooner, I would do that. (But I would probably hold out for one that generates electricity too at this point.)

    Dear Andrea,

    since the thermal insulation should improve the efficiency, and so the required energy to a given output, and hence the COP, we could suppose you can produce at least two E-Cat X models: one optimized for electric production, and so with the best thermal insulation one can conceive (obviously also economically viable), and driven to produce the least thermal energy and the highest electrical output, that produces electrical energy only, or mostly, and one instead optimized for the thermal output, with probabily reduced total COP. And probabily also two or three other intermediate models…

    What do you think?

    Best regards,
    Marco.

    All the international issues he cited have deep roots in very complex situations and I think there is no way that a technological product can change things in those situations, whatever it is.
    The timing of our presentations, as far as they depend on us, will be dictated by the results of the tests on course and the publication will be made whatever the results, positive or negative as they might be.

    Dear Andrea,
    I just visited the updated website of the Leonardo Company. It looks nice and obviously I pre ordered an Ecat Home. Just some questions about that. (Sorry in case that has been already asked):
    1. Do you think the first certified version would also supply electrical power?
    2. Do you think that my PV panels converter may be used to convert that power into AC?
    3. Is it right to assume that the power rating would be in the order of 20-30 kW?
    4. Do you expect that certification for European countries imposes similar difficulties and delays as in the US, or would they accept the US certification?

    Thanks and kind regards, Gerard

  847. Steven N. Karels

    Tim,

    While your proposed installation of an eCat unit on the outside of the house might (possibly) ease certifiers concerns and is certainly possible, I suggest that would not be acceptable for the following reasons:

    a. A Certifier would be concerned if a homeowner went ahead and installed it on the inside (i.e., the basement)
    b. Many people would not buy a system that required an “ugly bump” on their residency – aesthetic reasons.
    c. This make the home unit subject to more severe environmental conditions (temp range, rain, pests) making the enclosure more difficult and expensive
    d. This would raise the fear that the Ecat is so unsafe that it might “explode”, at least in the minds of potential customers.
    e. Running power to an Ecat mounted on the exterior is slightly more difficult because of those same environmental conditions.
    f. Unauthorized access (e.g., vandals, children, etc.) to a power generating device is a concern especially if it is operating 24/7 and the resident depends on it (unlike a temporary generator)
    g. A concrete pad might be required, as in an air conditioner unit (free standing) in many districts/zoning areas.

    It belongs inside the house probably near where the furnace and water heater are located, with means of dissipating excess (unused) heat, easier access to electrical power and perhaps plumbing, if needed.

  848. Tim

    Dr. Rossi:

    If you have too much trouble getting the Ecat certified for use inside the house, you might consider getting it certified for being mounted on the outside of a house, or even in a concrete box 20 feet from the house.

    After the regulators see them working for a few years, it may be easier to get them certified for working inside.

    Abstract
    Editor’s Summary

    The extremely high melting point of many ceramics adds challenges to additive manufacturing as compared with metals and polymers. Because ceramics cannot be cast or machined easily, three-dimensional (3D) printing enables a big leap in geometrical flexibility. We report preceramic monomers that are cured with ultraviolet light in a stereolithography 3D printer or through a patterned mask, forming 3D polymer structures that can have complex shape and cellular architecture. These polymer structures can be pyrolyzed to a ceramic with uniform shrinkage and virtually no porosity. Silicon oxycarbide microlattice and honeycomb cellular materials fabricated with this approach exhibit higher strength than ceramic foams of similar density. Additive manufacturing of such materials is of interest for propulsion components, thermal protection systems, porous burners, microelectromechanical systems, and electronic device packaging.

    Thermal regards,

    Dear Andrea,

    If you put yourself in the certifiers’ shoes, do you see logical reasons for them to say no, time after time?

    Or, do you think they are just putting up any reason they can think of (even if it is invalid) to keep you from getting the certification?

    Many thanks!

  865. Matt

    Dr. Rossi, regarding your response to Frank (about returning and being rejected for one reason or another), always remember this: When you’re dealing with people and trying to get them to check “ok”, or to buy into something, there’s going to be 3, 4, maybe 5 reasons that “sound good” that they throw at you. Eventually if you keep going with the conversation long enough, you may be able to uncover the *real* reason why they’re rejecting you.

    Point is: If you spend a lot of time chasing down their reasons that “sound good” to them, you’ll spend extra time needlessly, and may never get to the *real* reason so you can resolve that with them.

    My thought: The reason anyone is going to reject this is because it’s not “common”, and it has the word “nuclear” in it. Finding a party high profile enough to say “I endorse this” is likely the only way to get around that reason.

  866. Andrea Rossi

    I understand what you say, but I do not agree. I will fight until we will get the certification.

    Dear Andrea,

    When you say “we are making strong progress toward the certification of the domestic E-Cat”, do you refer to the low temperature E-Cat that is designed for domestic heating, or are you referring to a new domestic E-Cat X?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  870. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Both, because now I know the rules and have designed the E-Cat X to ease the difficulties. I come to you to get a thing, but you reject me for a reason: I lose, but I learn. I return to you, and again you reject me for another reason: again I lose, but I learn. I return to you…and this cycle is repeated if necessary one thousand times, because I do not give up: at a certain point I will have learnt enough to empty your reasons tank. This is how it works.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  871. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    I hope you are still feeling well? I can imagen that, while working on the invention of the century (that is what I think the Ecat is), stress due to worries about durability and performance must take a lot of energy from you. I do hope you do not ask too much of yourself.
    Just a simple question. While validating the E-cat X, what is the main factor that determine the usability? Is it the mechanical life-time of the reactor wall or more the ‘behaviour’ of the fuel’ ?
    A remark, which you must have thought of: I would expect that if you extract electrical energy from the Ecat, its temperature reduces (because the thermal energy goes down), that heat insulation of the reactor may improve its electrical efficiency. True?
    A last theoretical question, if you allow. In the preliminary Cook/Rossi document in which you explain that heat is produced of the lithium by fusion of protium with 7Li., which ultimately produces 2 alpha particles, it is not explained how this fusion is initiated. As you know a lot of energy is needed to overcome the Coulomb barrier. Do you already have a theoretical explanation how that proton/lithium is getting enough energy to do that? If so when do you expect to publish that?

    Gerard McEk:
    Thank you for your care: I am very well.
    The issues that make a test sucessful are many, complex and interdipendent: safety, efficiency, duration in time, reliability, stability, competitivity, firness to be industrialized, robustness, etc, etc. Safety, obviously, is first.
    Yes, the thermal insulation saves energy in proportion.
    Theory: we are working on it. About the Coulombian barriers you are right.

    Dear Andrea Rossi:
    I do not remember if you already have discussed the noise issue: does the E-Cat emit noises during its operation?
    Thank you,
    RJ

  874. Andrea Rossi

    RJ:
    I do not remember either if I touched this issue here. Answer: the noise of the 1 MW E-Cat in operation is <55 dB(A) at 1 meter (circa 1.1 yard) of distance from any point of it.
    More 1MW E-Cats would emit about the same amount, because the decibells from more adjacent sources sum up logarythmically.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I read your vision , published in your comment at midnight of the New Year First: I have ben impressed from your capacity to think big when it turns to your global strategy. We are discovering you are not just an inventor, but also an enterpreneur with a strong potential. I liked your anxiety to create jobs.I think we’ll see very interesting things from you during this year.
    Godspeed,

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    After the last exciting, but few, revelations on the E-Cat X, discussions on blogs seem to be geared mainly to the imagination of medium or high power stations, or even power stations “spread” on the street lamps; but I think the real innovation is the separation from the grid: antone can have electricity, light and heat independently on site.
    This is the great change that is coming.
    I am very happy to live this moment.

  879. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I have been thinking about the Ecat-X and self-power issues. In the past, you have expressed certification concerns over the electrical output of the Ecat being used as the control input to the same Ecat.

    Suppose you have 2 Phase grid power available (Phase A, Phase B and Neutral). Could you provide power to a single Ecat-X module using the 120VAC power from Phase A and Neutral and then generate electrical power from that Ecat-X and convert it to 120VAC on Phase B and Neutral?

    Would this not provide “isolation” for a specific Ecat-X from its own generated power. Given a large number (an ensemble) of Ecat-X power generation units in a city, the power phases should be balanced on the average. In effect, you can “sell back” the generated power to the power supplier.

    For example, if a 0.5kW unit requiring 0.05kW of electrical power input and has a converter efficiency of 80%, it would provide an excess of 0.35kW of electrical power. In one year, each such unit would provide about 3MWhrs of energy. Assuming a sell-back price of $0.10/kWh, this would yield about $300 per year. If each unit cost $25 and had a lifetime of 10 years with a refueling cost of $5 per year the lifetime revenue would be $3,000 against a cost of $75 plus manpower costs.

    Thoughts?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    For the group (aka ‘kindle’) of E-Cat X’s now being tested, can the output electrical energy to output thermal energy ratio be held approximately ‘constant’ or does it have significant variability?

    If electrical energy output is maximized, can the electrical output to thermal input ratio approach conventional methods of electrical energy production? Or should this be better described as a work in progress?

    How are the E-Cat and E-Cat X systems doing today?

    How are you doing today?

    Energetic regards,

    Joseph Fine

  886. Andrea Rossi

    Joseph Fine:
    1- we need to continue the test before being sure, but the ratio appears to be constant
    2- better described after the completion of the preliminar test
    3- now ( 07.45 a.m. of Jan 5) E-Cat 1 MW stable, E-Cat X still operating and promising

  897. Matt

    Dr. Rossi, I remember seeing a post a little while back that you were looking to “sell heat” to a customer. Is that still an option?

    Long story short, I’m working on trying to convince a, um… large organization… to do a research effort in which we supply all the inputs (electricity and whatever else required), measure those inputs into your system (as far as we’re concerned it’s a black box), and then measure the outputs of your system as delivered back to us. We verify, say, X goes in, and 3X comes out in terms of absolute energy (or whatever that number ends up being). Sustain that over a 6-12 month period, we utilize that heat for building heat, and/or to generate electricity for our (large) facilities, and write a report out the other end.

    If this X input = 3X (or whatever) output for month after month, then it’s a simple matter of stating that yes, in fact, we ran this system for 6 months and got excess power out the other end. We’d like to order one for every facility in the country, and our worldwide facilities also.

    Obviously, I’m not a spokesman, but if this happened and succeeded, regulatory problems would probably run away from you, rather than get in your way.

    If this is still an interest, or an option, please let me know, either on here or via eMail.

    A detail in your reply to Richard Wade, you wrote:
    “Cost of the E-Cat X/kW: 50 $, payback time 90 days
    Cost of the fuel per year: 10 $, payback time 10 days”

    Why isn’t the ratio of payback times (9.0) equal to the ratio of costs (5.0)? Maybe the fuel cost per year of $10 is not per kilowatt but some other amount of power?
    regards, /pekka

  920. Daniel De Caluwé

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Probably, because of certification issues (high temperature; and although not really dangerous still a nuclear device) and maintenance issues (at least replace the charge every year), you’ve chosen a public distribution system (of light, heat and electricity), only operated by certified personnel in your original dream, but does this mean that you think certification (of E-cat X) will be very difficult for individual home units?

    Anyhow, a public distribution system (as described in your dream) also could be a very good solution. And I can be wrong, but at first sight I only saw a minor disadvantage (that popped up after I read your message of 1st January): could a malevolent person (a thief or a terrorist) easily put a single house out of service by simply destroying the corresponding E-cat lamp, so that the corresponding house doesn’t get electricity and heat/cooling anymore? Compared with the present solutions where these services are safely locked behind the closed and locked doors of our houses? (Maybe it’s just a stupid and minor remark, but it popped up after I read your message of 1st January, and therefore I post this).

    Kind Regards,

    The name “EPCOT” means Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow”. Since Rossi is in Florida, and EPCOT is at Disneyworld (also in Florida), Rossi and Disney might join together to build a LENR-powered EPCOT. (https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/destinations/epcot/)

    Mr Rossi,

    To follow up, it sounds like it will cost roughly $500 to install a 1kw ecat-x street lamp according to: http://www.e-catworld.com/2016/01/03/some-financial-projections-for-rossis-e-cat-x-vision/

    Therefore the up-front cost to implent your dream town of 1 million street lamps would be roughly $500,000,000 which could output 100 Mwh/h of pure eletrical power (as a conservative estimate, which I derived from: http://www.e-catworld.com/2015/12/30/big-reveal-from-rossi-at-midnight-new-years-eve/ ).

    Now if you could sell back each Mwh of eletric power to the grid for $200 (see: http://www.bloomberg.com/bw/stories/2006-07-05/selling-power-back-to-the-grid ), it would take roughly three years to pay off your half billion dollar dream town investment according to my calculations based on electricity alone — not a bad balance sheet.

    Very Respectfully,
    George N

  926. Andrea Rossi

  929. Frederic Maillard

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    As Pekka Janhunen just suggested to you, the fastest way for you to start sales is probably to sell the electricity produced by your E-Cats to the general grid (providing F9 is positive of course).

    In my opinion, in case all certifications are not secured yet, it seems difficult to sell anything directly to an industrial company as you would have to bring an E-Cat plant onto their premises.

    Selling electricty to the general grid will allow not to wait for the latest certifications of the latest E-Cat versions.

    Do you know whether it is possible to sell very large amounts of kWh to the grid :
    1) in the USA ?
    2) in China ?

    1. Is the output voltage and current non-linear, like it would in a photovoltaic device?
    2. Is the output a characteristic I-V curve?
    3. If not, is the output voltage and current linear under varying resistive loads up to the maximum voltage output?

    Dear Andrea,

    First of all the best wishes for the new year. May the New Fire enlighten your work!
    Just a few questions about your Dream:
    1. Can you explain why you do not consider a home unit able to supply light, heat and electricity? To me that seems the most obvious choice for the Ecat X.
    2. What colour light does the Ecat X produce (e.g. 2700 K is warm white, 6000 K is blue).
    3. What percentage of the energy would be visible light?
    4. How often is refueling required and did you include that in your cost calculation?
    Thanks and kind regards,
    Gerard

    Hi Dr Rossi,

    Would operating e-cat X’s within your industrial space to sell electricity back to the grid be an initial operating capability? Would this require certification? And would it provide enough initial revenue to fund your research and fund obtaining other types of certifications?

    Some time last year I read an interesting article about a “High Tech Ghost town” on the CNN website that might be of interest to you. I have done a bit of digging and found the article I think.

    http://edition.cnn.com/2015/10/06/business/test-city/

    There are some other posts else where on the Internet too but I think this is one of the most recent.

    I believe the town is based somewhere in New Mexico, and is designed to test new and breakthrough technologies in an urban planning type environment. I wonder if this city or another one like it could be used to test, validate and maybe even showcase your dream concept.

    Dear dr. Rossi, is it possible to use the electricity supplied by E-Cat-X to charge batteries? I think it is possible without problems.

    If so, it should be also possible use these batteries to power back the same E-Cat-X or other E-Cats, after the appropriate necessary electric conversion.

    Having always a charged battery, the security should be ensured. Or not?

    Kind Regards
    Italo R.

  944. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    Certification issues are not that simple.
    Of course you can charge batteries, though.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  945. Dear Andrea,

    In my opinion, forget urban planning, because such solutions will anyway be region-specific. The important thing is to scale up production of E-cat X by the required factor of one billion (I mean from the presently existing 3 1 kW units to the final 3 billion 1 kW units).

    This could be done in two phases. In Phase 1, E-cat X’s would operate in Leonardo’s premises and make electric power (and optionally heat) which Leonardo sells to customers. Anyone who buys electricity is a potential customer, for example Google data center, aluminium factory or the general grid.

    Phase 2 would be the selling of domestic and industrial units. Phase 2 would start when the needed certification is reached. Data to support certification would be gathered in Phase 1.

    In this strategy, certification causes zero overall delay, because certification timing only affects the transition point from Phase 1 to Phase 2. The production capacity can grow exponentially all the time, and the growth rate is limited only by technical considerations. If certification is delayed, it only means that transition to Phase 2 occurs later along the exponential growth curve.

    The time required to do this is not necessarily long. If after each 90-day payback time the production capacity is multiplied by ten, for example, then the growth by one billion takes only 2.2 years. For example, there is no need to wait until the exhaustion of the fuel, before installing each new and numbered-up generation of units in Leonardo’s premises in Phase 1. The design can continue to evolve throughout all the rapidly following generations of units which together make up Phase 1. Only after Phase 2 starts, it becomes less easy to modify the design.

    Can you give us some ballpark figures about payback timeframes, costs, business gross value related to your “dream” published here at 00.00.01 of Jan 1st 2016 ?
    Thank you,
    Richard

  948. Andrea Rossi

    Richard Wade:
    Here are “ballpark” figures, to be worked upon:
    Cost of the E-Cat X/kW: 50 $, payback time 90 days
    Cost of the fuel per year: 10 $, payback time 10 days
    Cost of the water piping to distribute the heat in an urban neighborhood: average 200 $/kW, payback time 1 year
    Cost of the light 10 $/kW, payback time 10 days
    Cost of the cabling to distribute the electric energy 200 $/kW, payback time 1 year
    Total cost of the “network system” : 2 years and 4 months, let’s say 2 years, 6 months with maintainance costs
    Expected lifespan of the system: 15 years
    Potential market, considering to serve 1 billion people: 3 billion kWh/h
    Potential E-Cat market, limited to this sector of employment: 1.5 trillions of $
    Now, let’s wake uo, shake off the dreams and put down to work.

    Dear Andrea Rossi

    1. Does the invention of the E-CatX producing electricity have a shorter or longer start up time compared to the original E-CatX?

    2. Does the discovery of producing electricity with the E-CatX,

    a. Simplify, or
    b. Make more difficult, or
    c. Have no effect on

    developing the theoretical framework you are working on with Prof. Cook?

    3. Have you found a mathematician to help you out?

    Thanks

    Dear Andrea,

    Can Street Lights replace or supplent power plants using ESPN funding?

    After browsing the “cost” of operating street lamps, it occurs to me that the city staff that maintains the street lights of towns and cities could also be the staff that maintains their city generators. The street lamps could in theory supplement and even replace power plants in some situations. Street lights currently consume a substantial amount of funding for cities to operate them, this would be the first time in history that street lighting could actually be self funding, in that a negative cost for operating them is achieved, because of their contributions to the powering of both the residential and industrial applications in the cities that choose to deploy these lamps.

    The light gets brighter!

    Dear mr Rossi, correction to last question;

    I mean no wires that collect currents from the wafer ? (there are obvious wires to the heater…)

  959. Tom Conover

    https://historyrat.wordpress.com/2013/01/13/lighting-the-1893-worlds-fair-the-race-to-light-the-world/

    Who Will Light This Land?

    One of the first battles came at the World’s Fair of 1893 in Chicago. One of the most visited exhibits was one on electricity. At night the fair was lit by electricity. Who would light the fair would soon light the world. Unbeknownst to General Electric, George Westinghouse, armed with Tesla’s new induction motor, proposed to light the fair for $399,000. Westinghouse won the contract. The effect of winning the bid would change history. Tesla’s AC polyphase system would be on display for not only the US to see, but the whole world. At night, the fair became a scene of wonderment as the lights displayed the wonder of the fair and its location.

    “If evenings at the fair were seductive, the nights were ravishing. The lamps that laced every building and walkway produced the most elaborate demonstration of electric illumination ever attempted and the first large-scale test of alternating current. The fair alone consumed three times as much electricity as the entire city of Chicago. These were important engineering milestones, but what visitors adored was the sheer beauty of seeing so many lights ignited in one place, at one time. It “was like getting a sudden vision of Heaven.”

  960. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    Yes, this has been the victory of Tesla against Edison. Edison tried to obstaculate Tesla forbidding to sell bulb lamps to Westinghouse. Tesla has been the most important inventor of the last 200 years. For example, Guglielmo Marconi could never make his radiotransmissions without copying the patents of Tesla and the General Electric of Edison could never become what it became without copying the alternate current technology invented by Tesla.

  961. Øystein Lande

    Dear mr Rossi,

    OK so not Seebeck effect….. And you have no wires directly connected to the wafer?

  962. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    Can you perhaps consider building something so simple that even the certification processors are unable to resist? TEASE THEM! How about a simple street lamp for our highways? This is an industrial product for the cities to use, and certified operators would run the lights. One lamp lights ten poles perhaps. You can already print the component to a board, use your dream to light the highways of the USA! Savings would be massive, and upgrades could be done as the network of your work expands from one test state to the entire United States of America. The testing you need to do for the next two years could be completed on a positive revenue basis, and allow massive upgrades to be installed as the network grows to maturity. By the time you get half way across the continent, you will likely have replaced a few small power plants here and there, just because you can. As you get to the other side of the continent, you will be able to power a metropolis. I read a story once that starts out “In the beginning everything was dark. Let’s light up the town!”

    Just asking, “Can you build a light bulb?”. Is it really your dream? Wouldn’t the certification processors let you sell light bulbs after this to the general public?

    Your friend,

    Tom

    Dott.Rossi,
    Thanks for previous answers, I was guessing on the DC because of the absence of moving parts and external for the extreme environment inside but better ask.

    I’ll rephrase one of my questions.
    –> What ranges of Volt and Ampere per unit can each module express? Orders of magnitude would be “good enough”. Ex: 1-100 Volt 0,1-10 Ampere.
    As an alternative the “native” V-A values are fixed?

    Thanks, Gherardo

  975. Dear Andrea,
    I have two unrelated questions, if you will:

    1/ Does the E-cat X tolerate vibrations when running hot? This property would be relevant in all car applications.

    2/ In the US. patent, it is mentioned (page 9, left column, line 20) that mica layers are covered by “a protective polymer coating”. I think that most or all polymers decompose or melt already at relatively low temperature. Is the idea that the polymer coating purposefully outgasses and carbonises itself when first run, like what happens in the production process of carbon fibres?
    regards, /pekka

  976. Andrea Rossi

    Dear Dr. Rossi, the E-Cat-X has certainly now great difficulty to be used among the common people. Not for capabilities that are close to real using, but for the enormous restrictions that regulations oblige to apply.

    I imagine that you are working on both fronts – technology and regulations. Can you predict the timing? Thank you

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

  980. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    I hope 2 years. But, while tech depends on us, regulations and certifications don’t. Applications managed by a public service could be easier to certify, though, since the operation would be controlled by certified professionals. Therefore the “dream” could be eased.
    Warm Regards,

  981. Karl-Henrik Malmqvist

    Dear Andrea,
    From your first public demonstration of the low-temperature E-Cat in 2011 until the finish of the 1 year successful (F9) installation of the 1 MW plant in this February it has gone 5 years. Hopefully you then will get many orders for 1 MW plants.
    The E-Cat X is just newborn and a lot of work remains until commercialization. The difference is that now you have an experienced team and a granted US patent. But with a high temperature device you will run into many new challenges. Do you estimate/hope that the commercialization of the E-Cat X is less than 2 years from now?

  989. Dan C.

    Dear Andrea,

    1. Many want an off the grid system.
    2. They want it to meet all their energy needs “conveniently”.
    3. And they want it to be very economical. Cheap???

    Want #1 can be Achieved.
    A standalone system for minimum safety would require 3 X-cat units, each with it’s own electronics, each linked to supply power to each other. A battery capacity to start just 1 X-cat is all that would be need as the 1 X-cat could provide the power to start the other 2 X-cat units. You have a mini micro-grid.

    Want #3 is already in question because of the 3x factor in hardware cost.

    Want #2 can be Achieved.
    Each of the 3 X-cat’s being 10KWh each provides power even at peak periods.
    Convenience however, has a cost. 90% of the time you do not need peak energy production. If the real value of the energy you are producing is 2 cents a kilowatt hour, and your discarding 90% of that, the kilowatt hours you’re making use of is costing you 20 cents each as you must include the cost of the energy you discard.

    This situation could be alleviated by separating convenience from #2, but I don’t think most people would like waiting 10 or 20 minutes for the system to ramp up every time they want to turn on an appliance. And battery energy storage cost would result in a net zero savings. You’ve merely shifted the cost. Also, powering down 1 or 2 of the X-cats likely voids the minimum safety factor.

    Want #3 can not be achieved in conjunction with Wants #1 and #2 at an individual residential scale. I’m sure someone will point out an exception, but in general it can’t be accomplished.

    So, you can achieve #1 & #2 uneconomically, or you can achieve #2 and #3 if #3 includes connection to a localized micro-grid. Localized being a neighborhood or city micro-grid.

    Dr. Rossi and Readers, Disposal of Nuclear Waste is a MAJOR problem.
    For 60 Years they have been looking for a place to store it, for 250,000 Years.
    We have stored about 100,000 tones at about 70 sites all across the USA.
    If it were all placed on a Football Field, it would be 24 feet high.

    Happy New Year!!

    There are nuclear powered sources today which generate electricity and heat directly for use in space mission applications. These power sources use radioactive decay of elements to provide heat and direct generation of electricity. Some are referred to as Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generators (RTGs).
    How does the E-Cat X using LENR differ from these sources?

    Dear Andrea,
    After reading your blog about your dream, I too had a dream where you and IH collaborated with a land developer building a 100 home division that allowed you to install insulated heat and refrigeration pipes and electric power cables into each home using the trench containing the sewer system. This would be a relatively inexpensive plan to provide the means for transporting electric power,heat and refrigerant, generated by a nearby installed E-Cat power station, to the homes. The homes would also be equipped with the usual heat and refrigeration equipment to allow the comparison of efficiency with or without the E-Cat equipment by using them alternately. Being able to switch them at will would assure the home owner that failure of one system would not deprive them of any utilities.
    This is essentially what a power company did at the 1893 World Fair held in Chicago. A power company installed a power station near the site of White City constructed for the fair which allowed them to inexpensively install power lines and bulb holders into the newly built facilities. They did this to advertise and demonstrate the advantages and utility for the recently invented power devices. Needless to say the installation awed the people,from around the World and the US, who observed the new illumination system. The effect was credited with greatly speeding up the implementation of electric lighting into the World.
    Wishing you all the best,
    Congratulatory Regards.

    Dear Andrea,

    I hope that your vision might be adjustable to meet the needs of rural dwellers. One critically important aspect of the E-Cat, in my opinion, is that it could make possible affordable energy production for people who live in remote areas of the world where an existing energy infrastructure is not already well developed.

    Best wishes,

    Frank Acland

  1008. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland,
    I think that in remote areas there are other technologies more fit.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  1009. Karl-Henrik Malmqvist

    For me the off-the-grid aspect of the E-Cat has been the most intriguing part. Energy off-the-grid is much more valuable than extra energy where we already have access to the grid.

    If the E-Cat X can produce more electricity than it consumes the safety part is easy to handle.
    The electricity from the E-Cat X charges two battery banks. The primary bank is always charged first and powers (through inverters) the computers, pumps, valves and control systems as well as the stimulation system when the E-Cat X is in SSM mode.
    The secondary battery bank handles the start up and heat energy needed when the E-Cat X is not in SSM. If there is a problem for the E-Cat X to enter SSM only the secondary battery bank will be drained and the primary bank can safely shut down the E-Cat X.

    I wish you and your team a successful 2016

    Karl-Henrik

  1010. Sebastian

    Best wishes for 2016!

    I also had a dream a couple nights ago. You were spending a lot of time by the E-cat and one day realized that you were getting younger!

    The E-cat was actually the fountain of youth!

  1011. Dear Mr. Rossi,

    My dream is that with the help of many scientists and engineers as partners you develop an E-Cat-X that maximizes electricity output while minimizing heat output, which could lead to greater stability and scalability. Imagine a single unit 30 kilowatt home reactor that puts out 66% electricity and 33% heat. The heat can be used to warm your house, and the electricity can be used to run your lights, computers, televisions, kitchen appliances, etc. Imagine a single unit E-Cat-X that puts out 1 megawatt for large scale energy production. Would not maximizing electricity production while minimizing heat production give greater control and stability? I bet there are many experiments and alterations of design ahead for this technology that could make it all happen.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    What did you mean with the typo “nor” in your answer?
    “not”?
    “now”?
    Other?

  1021. Andrea Rossi

    Silvio Caggia:
    it was a typo, corrected.
    Thanks for your attention,

    Dear Andrea
    Woooooww what a scenario you dreamed. And what a revelation. And how many questions arises.
    Please let me ask you one of them:
    Maybe I’m totally wrong but do you mean that the ECat-X can also emit light so that it can be used as a lamp and, by radiation, as a home heater ?

    Thank you for your patience.

    God bless you
    Marco Serra

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Now, after reading your “dream”, we understand that your brain works on the base of complex genial views. What impressed me is your capacity of global vision. May God conserve you for us the time necessary for you to realize what you have in mind.
    Wade

  1030. Silvio Caggia

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    Have you never dreamed, now, to use output electric power as input for e-cat X?

  1031. Andrea Rossi

    Silvio Caggia:
    That is a possible configuration, but there are safety issues that could obstaculate it. Anyway it is not important the destination of the use.

  1032. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    Can you give us a brief and basic explanation of how the device generates electricity? Obviously, if it is happening in the wafer, you are not using a secondary device to convert heat to electricity – such as a TEG. The most common sense explanation, in my thinking, is that the KE of the alpha particles is being converted to electricity. But there could be something else happening. Please, throw us a brief explanation, if possible.

    Also, I like the idea of a totally distributed system like in your dream.

    Thanks.

  1033. Andrea Rossi

    Hank Mills:
    Thank you for your insight.
    As you already know, I cannot make pre disclosure in positive or in negative.
    Warm Regards

  1038. Mikea

    Dear Andrea,

    Can Ecat-X be used to power electric cars like Tesla? If it will, I can’t wait to transition to carbon-free transportation. That would make the world a better place to live. Happy New Year to you and your team.

  1039. Andrea Rossi

    Mikea:
    The Jet engine we are studying could be useful for Tesla, if it works.
    By the way: I like Tesla.

  1042. Andrea Rossi

    Dear Readers of the JoNP:
    It’s 00.00.01″ of January 1st 2016.
    Update: the 1 MW E-Cat is stable and in ssm, the E-Cat X is very promising and still operating and making heat, electricity.
    The E-Cat X is very close to the design of the core of the apparatus described in the US Patent, I mean the wafer. It has been engineered to resist to very high temperatures. The electricity exits directly from the wafer.
    As I said , several nights ago I had a dream. The E-Cat X had been produced in billions pieces, each of them assembled with others in various combinations to make public lamps: a town was totally illuminated by the E-Cat X and from every lamp a network of pipes and of wires was able to distribute heat and electricity to the houses.
    In that town there were about 1 million lamps each of them of 500 watts, consuming about 50 watts; consequently, there were 450 MWh/h produced, of which about half were turned into heat distributed to the houses through a network of well insulated pipes, running inderground, like optic fibers, the other half was used to enlight the town and to distribute electricity to the households. The cost of the E-Cat X was around 50 $/kW of power, due to the production of billions of pieces per year in all the world, with tens of thousands of jobs. Less taxes were paid by the people, due to the saves derived from low pollution and low energy cost for public services. Millions of persons were also earning money selling E-Cats and every owner of E-Cats was saving money in utilities ( electricity, heat, light).
    Then I heard the alarm clock: it was time to return to the factory, to make true the dream. F9.
    Happy new year, I love you all.
    I am drinking my cup of Korbel champagne, then i have to return to the gauges of the plant. She is good, tonight.
    Again, Happy 2016, may God bless you all,
    Andrea

  1043. Dan C.

    Dear Andrea,

    I understand you can walk on water.

    I’ll up the ante,
    If I flap my arms really fast, I can Fly.
    Of course, I haven’t totally mastered it as of yet(F9).
    I still have navigational problems.
    It appears at this time I can only fly in a vertical down direction.

    While much of the world is out celebrating my birthday (December 31st) and fast approaching time of birth(11:45 pm), I thought I’d drop a line and wish you & your team a Happy New Year.

    I also want to thank you for waiting until zero hour of January 1st before posting about the X-cat. I was afraid you were going to steal the thunder of this very special day. My Birthday.

    Warm Regards,
    Dan C.

    Tantissimi auguri di un meraviglioso anno 2016.
    Ho provato a rimanere sveglio fino alla tua mezzanotte, ma sto crollando (sono le 3 passate qui).
    Una cosa è sicura, domattina la prima cosa che farò sarà leggere il tuo blog.

  1047. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    I may be totally wrong, but this is my prediction about how the E-Cat X works to produce electricity and on the fly change the ratio of heat and electricity produced.

    “My guess is that Rossi is using one or more permanent magnets or electromagnets to align the alpha particles emitted by the proton-lithium reaction along one vector. This would allow for a non-random magnetic field that could be harvested and converted to electricity via a pickup coil. Without such an external magnetic field to direct the alpha particles, the mostly random magnetic fields would only produce heat via eddy currents. By choosing to what degree you align the alpha particles, you can vary the ratio of heat or electricity produced. I hope a permanent magnet will suffice – it would reduce the input power requirements. Also, the permanent magnets could be thermally insulated with a magnetically transparent – non-ferromagnetic – substance like aerogel. This is my prediction.”

    I am eager to read your announcement.

    Thank you for all of your hard work in 2016.

    Hank

    Silvio Caggia, haha you made me laugh, your sentence about “who pays” is correct and I tried many times to push a communist program (abolishing wage work and money) with Andrea Rossi and his revolutionary inventions but always failed. No way he can abjure the capitalist model; anyway, he’s much more akin to the classic XIX century capitalism (Edison, Ford) than contemporary imperialistic model.

  1050. Andrea Rossi

    Orsobubu:
    He he he…

    Hello Andrea,

    I’m celebrating the new year with my family and friends. It is 23:00 here in France. I will definetly think about you in 1h knowing that it will also be midnight in a few hours in the USA and you will be alone in the plant at that time… Thank you for all your sacrifices, I hope you will be better able to celebrate the new upcoming years afterwards :)

    After a hot year 2015 I wish you and your team an electric year 2016 !

    There is an old saying it ain’t over till it’s over. Sometimes, sports can be a metaphor for real life. Battered but not broken during the long preceding season Kirk Gibson’s path has led to this one moment of looming failure or triumph. It is now the bottom of the ninth inning and all is on the line. Kurt Gibson comes to the plate during the 1988 World Series of baseball. His team is on the ropes, he can hardly walk no less run. During the drama that unfolds he runs the count to 3 and 2. And then the most improbable thing happens, he hits a homerun for the win. I hope you enjoy this inspirational video, and that you to hit a homerun along with your fabulous team for all of mankind. Wishing all of you a happy and prosperous new year. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hCkYon5qjWI.

    Dear Rossi,

    Point made.. but for myself I would be more concerned about friends, colleagues and love ones risking to come in the line of fire. A majority of all victims are “Collateral damage”.

    Point made.

    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you (THANK YOU!) again for your endurance, self sacrifice, courage, patience, and kindness through all the trials you have endured in your journey through the journey you are on.

    Thank you, (THANK YOU!) for the New Fire, it truly is an electrifying concept!

    May your new year begin with JOY, and may your reward be the peace that excels all thought, as you continue on your journey through this exciting period of time.

    God bless you!

    Tom

    Here is an anecdote, a gift for your amusement, in anticipation of the New Fire… (he,he,he!)

    http://www.dltk-kids.com/world/greece/m-story-prometheus-fire.htm

    Andrea (which means Forethought), was always thinking of the future and making things ready for what might happen tomorrow, or next week, or next year.

    Andrea did not want to live among the clouds on Mount Olympus. He was too busy for that. While mankind was spending their time in idleness, he was planning how to make the world wiser and better than it had ever been before. So instead of living on Olympus, he went into his laboratory, and thought about mankind living in caves and in holes of the earth, shivering with the cold because there was no fire, dying of starvation, hunted by wild beasts and by one another—the most miserable of all living creatures. If they only had fire,” said Andrea to himself, “they could at least warm themselves and cook their food; and after a while they could learn to make tools and build themselves houses. Without fire, they are worse off than the beasts.”
    Andrea went boldly to the Certifiers, and implored them to give fire to the people, and not just the rulers, so that so they might have a little comfort through the long, dreary months of winter. “I will not!” said the Certifiers, “Not one spark will I share with them! For if men had fire they might become strong and wise like us, and after a while they would drive us out of our kingdom. Besides, fire is a dangerous tool and they are too poor and ignorant to be trusted with it. It is better that we on Mount Olympus rule the world without threat so all can be happy.”

    Andrea didn’t answer, but he had set his heart on helping mankind, and he did not give up. As he was walking by the seashore he found a tall stalk of lithium. He broke it off and then saw that its hollow center was filled with a dry, soft substance which would burn slowly and stay alight for a long time. He carried the stalk with him as he began a long journey to the top of Mount Olympus. Mankind shall have fire, despite what the Certifiers have decided,” he said to himself. And with that thought, he snuck quietly into his laboratory and stole a spark from a small lightning bolt. Andrea touched the end of the long reed to the spark, and the dry substance within it caught on fire and burned slowly. Andrea hurried back to his blog, carrying with him the precious spark hidden in the hollow center of the plant. He called some of the shivering people from their caves and built a fire for them, and showed them how to warm themselves by it and use it to cook their food. Men and women gathered round the fire and were warm and happy, and thankful to Andrea for the wonderful gift which he had brought to them.

    One chilly winter evening, Zeus gazed down from Mount Olympus and noticed fires burning cheerfully at the hearths of men and women in every village across the land. It did not take him long to realize that Andrea had disobeyed him and given fire to men. Zeus was very angry and ordered that Andrea banned from the priesthood of GREEDY SCIENTISTS for all eternity. And there Andrea stayed, thinking of the future, happy in the knowledge that he had given fire to men until he was one day rescued by Hercules, the mortal son of Zeus…

    But that is a story for another day!

  1074. H. Hansson

    Dear Rossi,
    To some extent Steve have probably made a point. As long as you stay in USA in a unknown location you are probably reasonably safe. But if and when you travel to other parts of the world (Europe) that is totally different ball game, you will be in reach. Neutralizing you will prove to be counter-productive in the long run, .. however, not all peoples share our logic.

    Traveling low-profile, stay with friends and not advertise your whereabouts is probably just one of many precautions you are already is exercising.

  1075. Andrea Rossi

    H. Hansson:
    Thank you for your kind care and suggestions, but if a bullet is destined to me I can’t avoid it not even hiding myself at the center of the Earth.
    I have to do what I have to do.
    Besides, I am convinced that everybody wants an integration of all the possible energy sources.
    I wish you a wonderful 2016,
    A.R.

  1080. Silvio Caggia

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    How do you measure the electric power out from E-Cat X?
    You apply a resistive load?
    Or an inductive load?
    Or a capacitive load?
    Which instruments do you use?

  1081. Andrea Rossi

    Silvio Caggia:
    Resistive load.
    Description of the instrumentation and the test will be given after the completion of the first phase of tests.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted that one New Year’s day (at midnight) you will “I will write here what is the E-Cat X and what I want to do of it.”

    Are you saying that you will post on JONP both some level of a description of what Ecat-X is and your vision for its usage/goals?

  1085. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    I agree with you.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1086. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I think the posting that the reactors are starting to show signs of fuel exhaustion adds credibility to the whole eCat saga. Nothing worse than a “perpetual motion” machine that never runs out of fuel. The observations during this time of those reactors should be very interesting. Also the post-test isotopic analysis. Assuming a COP greater than one, the amount of energy generated over this long period of time and accurately monitored and recorded should exclude a chemical-based reaction.

  1087. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Yes.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Will be a year of new energy for all over the world?
    I wish you all a happy and prosperous 2016
    G.Luca

  1094. Andrea Rossi

    Gian Luca:
    For sure the 2016 will be the year in which the test on course with the 1 MW E Cat will be completed and in which will be completed the tests on the E Cat X.
    I wish a successful New Year also to you.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  1095. Øystein Lande

    Dear mr. Rossi

    Is not 50% change of success a very pessimistic Value considdering only 2 Months left of test…?

    Or du you have particular worriries now?

  1096. Steve

    Andrea,

    I have been following your progress and others for a long time. One area of concern I have, and this concern maybe unfounded, but I need to express it. Since your technology will change the economy of the world, Petro-dollars, investments, and so on, do you have proper protections in place to ensure that you and your technology is safe? I would imagine that there are many people, corporations, and even whole government that are carefully watching your work and want you and your work removed from the earth.

    If possible, I would like to see you place your notes, research and so on safely in escrow with a few trusted third parties that if anything were to happen to you, the world can still get access to it.

    Best regards,

    Steve

  1097. Andrea Rossi

    Steve:
    I think everybody has understood that the integration of this technology is an advantage for all.
    If it works.
    Warm Regards

  1098. Brokeeper

    Dear Andrea,

    Events you described as “coincidence”, “unexpected”, or “dreams” are often divine sign-posts of verification and direction given to weary discoverers. But being a man of faith, I’m sure you know this. Happy New Year to you and your crew!

    Dear Andrea Rossi

    1. If the E-Cat X generating electricity proves to be a successful product, does Leonardo Corp. intend to distribute it through the existing network of wholesale distributors or through some other arrangements?

    2. Does the Leonardo Corp. network of wholesale distributors now include territory assignments to cover the entire earth?

    3. If not, what are the areas where you are still seeking distributors?

    Thanks and best wishes for the New Year.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    I think the real value of Leonardo Corporation is your brain. Someone can copy or buy something from your company, but what will they do, when you will invent the next thing? It is the same story of Apple, everybody copied the Mac and Steve Jobs made the I-pod, everybody copied it and Steve made the I-Phone, and all the other companies to copy, and then He made the I-Pad. I am waiting for Your next big thing.
    God bless you

  1109. Andrea Rossi

    Domenico Canino:
    Thank you for your trust.
    As a matter of fact, the perspective of the E-Cat X is huge. We’ll return soon on this issue: the last night I had a dream: at midnight tomorrow, when the New Year will be born, which means at 00.00 a.m. of Jan 1st 2016, I will be in the plant and I will uncork the bottle of the Korbel ( a very good US champenois) to celebrate: I will be alone inside the plant in that moment, with the security guards only; immediately after that I will write here what is the E-Cat X and what I want to do of it. F9.
    God bless you and all our Readers too.
    A.R.

  1110. Paul

    Andrea,

    Can you repeatedly turn the E-Cat X off and on fast enough to produce an AC voltage without a power inverter?

    Paul

  1111. Giuliano Bettini

    Dear Andrea,
    about the E-CatX “electronics”.
    If the electric output is adjustable including both Volts and Amps, I wonder if you have something like a two port network with two pairs of terminals to connect to external circuits (and if it’s possible to measure with Voltmeter and Ammeter). Do not want to enter into details but … is it something like this?
    Best Regards
    Giuliano Bettini.

  1112. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted “E-Cat 1 MW: another reactor shows a decrease of efficiency, but still has enough COP. The charges are starting to give evidence of consumption. Very interesting to study the phenomenon from now on.”

    On the 1 MW system:

    a. Are all four 250kW reactors currently being used?
    b. Are any reactors producing less than 250kW of thermal power?
    c. As a particular reactor approaches fuel exhaustion, do you see increased control issues?
    d. Likewise, do you observe a decreased effective COP for that reactor?
    e. Likewise, do you see decreases in the time of SSM for that reactor?
    f. Can the other reactors have their output increased beyond 250kW to compensation for the reactors experiencing approach of fuel exhaustion?

  1113. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    a. yes
    b. can’t answer
    c. no
    d. yes
    e. yes
    f. can’t answer

    Caro Andrea
    sono stato lontano dal tuo blog per una settimana, ritorno e apprendo questa fantastica notizia.
    A N D R E A – S E I – U N – G R A N D E
    Mi hai riempito il cuore di gioia. L’umanità aveva bisogno proprio di questo e tu sei l’uomo della (divina) provvidenza. Sono molto contento anche per te perchè te lo sei veramente meritato questo successo. Ti vogliamo bene e noi italiani siamo fieri di te che porti in alto il nome dell’Italia (anche se l’Italia non ci fa certo un figurone nella tua vicenda, come sempre è stato nella sua storia purtroppo).
    Avrei 1000 domande da farti ma te ne faccio una sola:
    Dopo l’ECatX pensi ancora che il settore automobilistico potrà beneficiare della tua invenzione solo fra qualche decennio ?

    Che Dio ti benedica
    Marco Serra

    ENGLISH:
    Congratulation for the achievement of the electric ECat-X. It’s a victory you fully deserved. My heart is full of joy. We love you. I’m proud to be italian as you are (even if Italy has not been kind to you, as always in its history).

    Just one question:
    Knowing ECat-X potential, do you still think automotive will benefit of your invention not before some decades ?

    God bless you
    Marco Serra

  1115. Andrea Rossi

    Marco Serra:
    Thank you foryour kind encouragement.
    Answer: that will be a matter of F9 and of certification timeframe, that does not depend on us.
    Happy 2016!
    A.R.

  1116. Giuseppe

    Dear Andrea,
    you say that in the ECat-X you can choice to use electricity or heat but, let me better understand, while you use electricity heat still continue to be produced or not.
    If yes, do is possible to apply also a Carnot cycle in order to increase COP, or it is a no meaning and no sense thing!
    Regards, Giuseppe

  1117. Andrea Rossi

    Giuseppe:
    Yes, the E-Cat X prototype under test produces heat and, at the same time, electricity.
    The COP is not related to this issue.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1118. Alice

    Dear A.Rossi,
    About the E-Cat X:
    Do you think that it is fir only for domestic use or also for industrial and extended roles?
    Thak you for your answers,
    Alice

  1119. Andrea Rossi

    Alice:
    Also for extended roles: the Universe is made by quarks and leptons!
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1120. H. Hansson

    Dear Rossi,

    What is the total down period for the eCat so far?.. where you have been unable to deliver sufficient amount of energy to your client according to the contract.

    As I understand from following your test the eCat have been fairly stable, not having more issues than a normal plant of similar complexity and design using traditional source of energy.

  1121. Andrea Rossi

    H. Hansson:
    Thank you for your kind attention to our work.
    I cannot give you the data you are asking.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1122. Obro

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Considering that the 1MW E-cat test is nearing its conclusion, what according to your estimate is the probability of its results being positive?
    a)above 90%
    b)80 to 90%
    c)70 to 80%
    d)60 to 70%
    e)50 to 60%
    f)below 50%

    Kindest regards, and happy and successful New Year!

  1123. Andrea Rossi

    Obro:
    50%
    Happy and Successful New Year to you,
    A.R.

    Dr Irina & Vitaly Uzikov:
    Have you found a customer already to realize your plant for nuclear waste reduction? It seems to me very important.
    I wish you a successful 2016,
    R.S.

  1125. Andrea Rossi

    R.S.:
    Waiting for the answer of Dr Irina Uzikova and Dr Vitaly Uzikov, let me underline an important consideration: Irina Uzikov is a very high level nuclear physicist, among the most promising of the Russian school of the matter and she is a woman: women are in low percentage in the field of nuclear physics respect men, but when they are good, they are really good. This is a strong merit also of the Russian Physics tradition. The percentage of female nuclear physicists in Russia is higher that in the other Countries.

    Dopo un anno di Test in corso sull’impianto industriale, e prendendo a 100 la scala di valutazione dell’affidabilità dell’impianto da 1MW, e ipotizzando per questo un’affidabilità di 80, indipendentemente se questo sarebbe sufficiente o meno a consentire il passo della commercializzazione, lo stesso valore sarebbe trasferibile ai singoli elementi ( E.Cat ) che lo compongono oppure tale valore sarebbe/dovrebbe essere diverso? E se si, quanto diverso?

    Gratitude!!!

    Dear Andrea

    Thank you for all the amazing hard work, you give to the world. A very healthy and fulfilling and loving new year, to you all.
    As I am (and most of us)disturbed, by 1% of the people in the world owning more then 99% of all the wealth, but also I am deeply moved how even less then 0.001% of all people will change the future of this world for good. I would like to say thanks to you (inc your family) and your team , being a part of this. Only to your perseverance ( and all people standing behind and working as hard as you) you have accomplished a miracle. Time will show, but I, (as you of course believe yourself), strongly believe the snow ball you started rolling down the hill will be unstoppable.

    thanks!!!

    I don’t think I can do something in return….but if I can, let me know.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    Is it possible to drive e-cat-X in order to achieve only electric power and near zero thermal power?
    Is there any theorical limit to the minimal working temperature?
    (Yes, I am thinking about places where it’s difficult to dissipate heat, like in deep space vacuum or in a pocket…)

  1138. Andrea Rossi

    Sorry: I can’t answer in positive or in negative, to avoid pre-disclosure.

  1139. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    A few question regarding the E-Cat X, if you don’t mind.

    1. How are you making these wafers nowadays — by machine, by hand?
    2. Does the fuel wafer in the E-Cat X include the resistors as described in your US Patent?
    3. What do you do if you need to be in two places at once (with the E-Cat X and the 1MW Plant)?
    4. With so many promising projects to work on, there must be lots of work to do. Are you hiring help — if so, how can someone apply?
    5. Could you provide a photo, like you have done with the 1MW plant?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  1140. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    1- by machine
    2- yes
    3- I have the faculty to be at the same time in two different places ( …and to walk upon the water, resuscitate deads- I did it with many zombies- etc etc)
    4- now the Team id complete, but soon I will need help and we will make known how to apply. I want to make new jobs
    5- sooner or later I will. Now it is impossible
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1143. Marco

    Dear Andrea,

    Congratulation for the electric ECat.

    I do not agree with you regarding electric planes. Boeing (if I remember well) produces two electric planes with discrete autonomies (a mono seat and in a few months a bi-seat)… The main problem is the weight of the batteries, since an electric motor is very affordable and dependable… But with one o more EE-Cat, backed by some batteries…

    Finally a joke: “Do electric cats dream of electric mouses?”

    Regards.

  1144. Andrea Rossi

    Marco:
    The BOEING experimental planes you cite are exactly what I meant when I said “Toys”: I did not refer literally to toys, but in general to devices that have nothing to do with industrial and commercial applications in the aviation business. They are devices interesting under a theoretical point of view, albeit you’ll never see anything like that for passengers or merchandise transportation.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear mr. Rossi,

    Considering the oil price now is Below 40 USD/bbl , and may be low for years ahead…

    Are you still confident the e-cat can compete with cheap fuel oil for producing heat (i.e. Heating medium or hot water)?

  1147. Bob Fastnacht

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    You are an inspiration to all of us who have dreamed of inventing a product that will truly make a difference in peoples lives.
    Do you believe it is possible to produce electricity from the E-Cat in a similar manner of the E-Cat X ?
    Happy New Year!
    Bob

  1148. Andrea Rossi

    Bob Fastnacht:
    Thank you for your kind words.
    Answer: no, it is not possible.
    Happy New year to you,
    A.R.

  1149. Dan C.

    Dear Andrea,

    Everyone can make money with this technology.
    One Perspective is- Everyone has the potential to make money with this technology. Another Perspective is- A Penny saved is a Penny earned.

    For those who propose a moneyless society. You must keep track of work/benefit else you will have few producing(work) and many just enjoying the fruits of others labor(benefit). The system would collapse.

    We can count the labor hours performed by each person to keep track.
    I approached my Doctor about this and he concurred this could work.
    However, He wants 6 hours of my labor for 15 minutes of his time.

    Warm regards,
    Dan C.

    Dear Andrea,
    Due to the extremely compelling invention of the EEcat, no doubt many new ideas blossomed in your mind and no doubt that will continue.
    1. I hope you are not neglecting the 1MW plant, which is still very important for the future I assume. How is it running today?
    A few questions regarding the Ecat X:
    2. Are all three Ecats equipped for extracting the electrical current?
    3. We would love to see it demonstrated to Lewan or some other credible people (I volunteer too). Is there any possibility?
    4. Still happy with the performance?
    I wish you and your team all the best for 2016 and a lot of cracker less New Fire!

  1152. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard Mc Ek:
    1- update: now, at08.10 a.m. of Dec 29th the 1 MW E-Cat is stable. I am inside here 16 hours per day, how can I neglect it?
    2- yes
    3- sooner or later yes, but it is very premature. We will present it when and if we will be sure it will be ready for production.
    4- yes
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1153. Rémi André

    Dear Mr Rossi

    Congratulations for your new discovery concerning E-CAT X. May I ask you if the phenomenom involved in the Rossi Effect has something to do with Magneto Hydro Dynamics ? You are not obliged to answer but in the case the answer is positive I recommend you to follow this link

    http://www.savoir-sans-frontieres.com/JPP/telechargeables/English/THE_SILENCE_BARRIER.pdf

    Moreover even if the answer is negative I think you should read this because it could be useful in your Jet Engine project.

    Thank you for reading this.

    Anna:
    No, I am working on the E-Cat X in a specific laboratory I set up for “her”. This lab, for obvious reasons, is close to the factory where the 1 MW plant is operating.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1157. alessandro Coppi

    Hi Andrea,
    perhaps now you should stop the research in the jet engine sector, and focalize on very powerful and special electrical motor for airplanes.

    Best regards

    Alessandro Coppi:
    Let’s bring on the work we are focused on now. When you make a battle you must put all your force on the specific battlefield in the specific moment, otherwise you are doomed to be defeated.
    Thank you for your suggestion, though, albeit I think that, under the energetic point of view, an electric motor for aeroplanes is a wrong concept, unless you make toys.

  1161. Andrea Rossi

    Akum:
    You can’t imagine how impatient am I, but I must be patient all the way, working to make it happen as soon as possible. Sometime you can’t foresee: for example, I studied for years how to get out from an E-Cat directly electricity ( we had traces of it), but I have not been able and for those years no progress has been done…suddenly, during a night in the plant, I got an idea that arrived unexpected, and in few seconds we got a progress that we didn’t get in years.
    Therefore, it is impossible to give an answer.

  1166. Buck

    Andrea,
    It has taken me a few days to digest your incredible news about the E-Cat X.

    You have shared your intent to initiate a commercial revolution with the E-Cat X and this has created many thoughts on what you might mean. Does the following scenario fit within your goal?

    I suggest that another way of seeing what you are talking about is the idea of Micro-Finance . . . the lending of small $ amounts to the poor or impoverished who can then establish a small business.

    The beauty is that this enabling of entrepreneurs allows for the elevation of local conditions. For example, money to buy a milk cow goes a long way towards feeding/wet nursing the poor. Or, a sewing machine for keeping clothing in good repair for those who have jobs. A bicycle for a delivery service. Etc.

    A 3.5 kw E-Cat X can go a long way towards elevating the local conditions of the impoverished community. The local entrepreneur selling power for cell-phone charging, cooking, hot water, water purification, water pumping, sewage disposal, micro-industries, etc.

    Muhammad Yunus earned the Nobel Peace Prize because of the impact microlending had upon those in need, those cutoff from traditional sources of help.
    Link>> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muhammad_Yunus

    Given your apparent desire to benefit humanity, I can easily imagine this is within the scope of your stated goal. This avenue speaks to helping 10’s to 100’s of millions of people relatively quickly. Does the above fall within your idea of a commercial revolution?

  1167. Andrea Rossi

    Buck:
    Thank you for your suggestion.

    A.R.

    I hope that you are enjoying the holidays.

    Is there anything you can tell us in general terms about the mechanism by which the E-cat X generates electricity? Does it emit some kind of particle, which can be converted easily to electricity? Some form of EM radiation?

    Thank you for taking the time to answer my question.

    For those unfamiliar with an economy of plenty…

    Source: Wikia: Star Trek
    The New World Economy ( Star Trek )

    Under the New World Economy, material needs and money no longer existed and humanity had grown out of its infancy. People were no longer obsessed with the accumulation of things, effectively eliminating hunger and the want for possessions. The challenge and driving force then were to self-improvement, self-enrichment and the betterment of all humanity.

    However, the Federation continued to deal with other cultures which had money-based economies. The Ferengi in particular were scornful of the Federation’s economic system:

    “I’m Human, I don’t have any money.”
    “It’s not my fault that your species decided to abandon currency-based economics in favor of some philosophy of self-enhancement.”
    “Hey, watch it. There’s nothing wrong with our philosophy. We work to better ourselves and the rest of Humanity.”
    “What does that mean exactly?”
    “It means… it means we don’t need money!”

    Ps: you are correct, turning up or down or choosing between electricity and heat is no big deal. But I wanted to congratulate you on the production of electricity!

  1180. Dear Andrea,
    First of all seasons’s greetings and congratulations (F9) for your recently hinted enormously promising new results.

    Then a comment about business strategy. The microprocessor (Intel, Motorola) enabled the personal computer, one of which was Apple. The natural role for Leonardo Corp is to be “Intel”, i.e. the “processor” maker, rather than “Microsoft” or “Apple” who made products for the end user. This is so because someone has to make the “processor” (the E-cat), and obviously that “someone” cannot be anyone else except Leonardo.

    Then there is the question how much, if at all, Leonardo should be involved in the end user business. In the computer world the all-inclusive business strategy usually eventually failed, for example IBM, DEC, HP, Silicon Graphics, Sun. Those companies made everything themselves, including the processor.

    On the other hand, making everything in house is not necessarily a bad idea, provided that the product is well defined. SpaceX is a company who currently does that successfully. They make everything in house, including the rocket engine.

    Regardless of what will be the strategy with E-cat X, I anyway hope that Leonardo brings to market the 1 MW industrial plants following the planned schedule. Also SpaceX brought their first product (Falcon-1) into market early on, even though they knew that it would be superseded by evolved Falcon models before long. The growth of a company can be fast, but it must happen in stages.

    Dear Andrea Rossi
    You give us a splendid Xmas gift with the electricity news.
    Since I remember that in the Swiss conference you were still searching for a good tecnology for change heat to eletricity.
    So my question is :is the electricity direct from E-catX or you use someone else’s tecnology?

  1187. Andrea Rossi

    Italo Caproni di Taliedo:
    It is from the E-Cat X.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The sense of my comment is that I don’t understand the sense of this comment: “My dream is a product for everybody that makes everybody make money with it. I am also studying a commercial system that will allow everybody to make money with the E-Cat.”

    In particular “everybody make money” is a mind-boggling concept for me.

    Another “anomaly” is that after a big discover and a big invention you want also to make a big product and a big commercial system… Don’t you think it’s too much for a single man? I think it’s too much even for a single big company!

    Please, explain better the sense of your comment, because it sounds very crazy even to your best committed follower like me…

  1193. Andrea Rossi

    Silvio Caggia:
    To explain I give just 2 examples:
    1- example of pruduct that has made everybody make money: the computer
    2- example of small individual entity that developed such a product and grew up: Apple
    About the particulars of what we are setting up ( F9) it is not the case to disclose them now.

    Dear Andrea,

    I’m following your work since many years ago when I heard about an Italian Inventor
    able to heat an industrial building in Italy using a kind of magic “cold fusion” process.

    How much effort you spent and how many progresses you made from those old times !

    Now, with the terrific news you provided, the circle is almost completed and we enter
    2016 into a new age: the X (electrical power) generation !

    Just one question: how long do you think we will have to wait until you can confirm this
    is NOT a dream ?

    Warm and Lightning Regards,

    Riccardo

  1195. Andrea Rossi

    Rick 57:
    It is difficult to foresee how much time it will take the tests cycle and I prefer not to give dates, otherwise at that date, should we not be ready, I could be accused not to have maintained my word.
    For sure I can say that I am working very hard on it and after the patent application will have to set up a specific team in Leonardo Corporation.
    Warm Regards,

  1196. Terry Goldstein

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    The test on course gives evidence of another important issue: your personal sacrifice, to insulate yourself from the world and stay 16 hours per day , night and day, inside the plant for 350 days gives evidence to all of us that your plant is safe. I know, this was obvious after all the measurements made in laboratory during your experiments and tests, published also in the reports made by the independent third parties, but your sacrifice, courage and personal engagement speak sound and clear also to them who are not able to read the reports.
    May God bless your 2016,

  1200. H. Hansson

    Dear Rossi,

    If your invention works as intended, it will quickly become a competitive advantage that countries, organizations and companies can not do without. Either you have access to the technology or is struck out of competition (do or die).

    Have you ever wondered about the geopolitical implications if some have access to your LENR technology and others not? For example, this can cause extensive piracy and calls for compulsory licensing.

    Or do you believe that other competitors will offer similar solutions that we (your fans) just not heard about..??

  1201. Andrea Rossi

    H. Hansson:
    If the E-Cat will work, it will have the same evolution of the products necessary to everybody, as you correctly said. There will be an integration. Difficult to foresee exceptional events.

    Are you dreaming a neo-communist society where all are rich?

    Dear Andrea,

    So, you invented the direct electricity producing E-Cat on Christmas Day? Any significance to this date or was it just a coincidence? Was this invention perhaps something that you had been mentally toying around with and finally had the right stuff to try it? Or more of an out-of-the-blue-sky kind of idea?

    Best Regards,

    Janne

  1205. Andrea Rossi

    Janne:
    The date was a coincidence, I am studying on it since years now. Mix work and study, never give up…in technology nothing is impossible, it is matter of time filled up with work and study.
    Warm Regards,

  1206. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    About everyone making money with the E-Cat: Do you mean selling electricity to the grid?

    In many states and countries it is possible to sell electricity back to the grid if you produce electricity wind or solar. But if everyone has an E-Cat and is selling excess energy to the grid, there is little need for the grid, and the economics don’t work.

    When you say you hope that everyone can MAKE money with the E-Cat, do you mean you hope that everyone can SAVE money with it? That would make sense to me.

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea Rossi!
    Thank you very much for this Christmas gift!
    IMHO direct production of electricity is a mayor gamechanger. WOW!
    Can you please tell as something about Volts/Amperes/time? :-)
    Could you please give a rough, of course premature, estimation of what we can expect in thermal power / electric power from the E-Cat X?
    Something in kWh?
    I’m also fine with Joules, of course!

    Thank you very much for your work!
    Happy New Year for your team, you and your family!

    You harnessed the Rossi Effect better than ever before.

    A nuclear electric battery. Right from a Sci-Fi book !

    I hope there are not bad side-effects. A lot depends on this.

  1216. WaltC

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Back on July 25th, this year, you described the origins of the idea for E-Cat X immediately after surgery (you called it M.me Curie at the time). You called it a “revolution” and believed it should improve on the “classic” one.

    I’ve been intensely curious ever since I read that posting– it seemed like a true creative breakthrough:

    – Now that E-Cat X is a little more known, is it possible to say what the original idea you had at that time was?

    Thanks,
    WaltC

  1217. Andrea Rossi

    WaltC:
    The idea was exactly to do what I am doing. By the way, now, at 06.15 p.m. of Sunday Dec 27, it is working well and producing heat and electricity.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1218. Peter Metz

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    A clarification about electricity production if you can? When electricity is generated by the E-Cat X does this mean that a) the amount of electricity produced exceeds the input amount or does it mean that b) some of the input amount used to generate heat from the E-Cat X can be recovered (but not all of it)?

    Thank you for your response. Wishing you a great success with this and, of course, a happy and healthy new year.

    Sincerely,

    Peter Metz

  1219. Andrea Rossi

    Peter Metz:
    We’ll give due information after the completion of the preliminar test phase.
    I cannot add further information, also to avoid pre-disclosure of a matter we are preparing the patent of.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1220. Bob

    Congratulations on your discovery of the electricity producing E-CatX

    1. Does this device contain any moving parts?

    2. Are there new materials in the wafer part that you have not previously used?

    3. Does this new device require additional parts or equipment of your new and proprietary design?

    4. Does it make sound while in operation?

    5. Does the quality of the sound reveal any information to you about its operation?

    Thanks again to you and your team for your patience and persistence.

    Nikola Tesla the father of modern electricity would be proud of Dr Rossi today.

    please share this quote from from Nikola Tesla:

    ” I do not think there can be any thrill that can go through the human heart
    like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding
    to success .. such emotions make a man forget food, sleep, friends, love, everything.”

    “Is Rossi going too far ahead of where world currently wants to be? Can Rossi actually patent a overunity device when the patent office says that perpetual motion is impossible? How can Rossi word his upcoming patent to make a self powered device patentable?”

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    You say that the theory elaborated by prof. Cook and you is still needing math support in order to be demonstrated…
    But, if you were able to infer predictions from this theory, till to improve your e-cat to produce directly DC electric power, what should a clever scientist think about your theory?
    That you are lucky or that the theory sounds?

  1229. Andrea Rossi

    Means that I learn very much from Prof. Norman Cook.

    Dear Andrea,

    I must have missed the “Big News” early this morning… Excuse me please. Does the E-Cat X (that is producing electricity) still have full protection by the current United States Patent US 9,115,913 B1?

    Thank you very much!

    Tom

  1235. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    Honestly, I do not see what is exceptional or stunning in my answer: it is not beyond any expectancy that we can choose if to make a greater amount of heat and reduce the electric energy output, or to make a greater amount of electric energy and reduce the heat.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1236. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    Frank Acland just asked you “In the E-Cat X now, which is greater: the heat output, or electricity output?” and you replied “We can choose.” WOW!

    Although I have always been I science fiction fan, I dearly love the study of the true sciences and of logic within and I have to say – your response is either a holiday teaser, or the most incredible step forward in the story of Rossi and the Cats!

    I have only have one question for you tonight, are you just teasing us or are you serious?

    If the E-Cat X is really going beyond any expectancy, I promise to stay calm and wait for the results but, please, please answer this question again, and be serious, “In the E-Cat X now, which is greater: the heat output, or electricity output?”

    Thank you!

    Tom

  1237. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    The E-Cat X is well protected by my patent US 9,115,913 B1.
    The system to produce electric energy is a separated patent in preparation: I started the preparation of it this night, inside the computer container.

  1242. Greg Leonard

    Dear AR
    I too must add my congratulations on the US patent.
    I am full of admiration for the brilliance of your hard work. You are clearly at a very productive part of your life.

    What would you say might be the E-Cat contribution to a reduction of Global Warming (GW)?

    Where the E-Cat is a simple substitution for burning fossil fuel, the nett increase of heat released will probably be the same, but with zero CO2 and other noxious gases. This should be a major help in reducing GW.

    Where E-CatX might run at very high temperature, this might open the way for more efficient use of the heat, and so reduce the amount of heat needed by a little. A little help in reducing GW.

    Where the E-Cat can provide heat cheaply, it will be deployed very widely and in situations where currently there is no heat generated. This is likely to increase the overall heat generated, and so may contribute slightly towards GW.

    How do you see the balance?
    regards,
    Greg Leonard

  1243. Andrea Rossi

    Greg Leonard:
    Evolution never stops.
    For the E-Cat X to become a product it takes still time, because I invented the system yesterday, observing her working and thinking to all the theoretical studies ( still incomplete) I made on her in this period, also with the help of Prof. Norman Cook, whose book continues to be a gold mine to me.
    This having been said, to turn it into a product, an enormous work remains to be done, and Leonardo Corporation has to go through many further prototypes. For now let’s see the endurance of the E-Cat system at work.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1244. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    Your new discovery is extremely important and seems to imply that no mechanical conversion seems necessary to make it useable for any purpose, unless you only need heat. Congratulations for you it is an extraordinary achievement!
    It seems to me it should be easy now to make a fully self supporting E-cat now, perhaps with exception of the start-up mechanism. 1. Can you confirm that?
    My curious mind as an electrical engineer is full of additional questions, I know you want to devote all your time on the new discovery and the 1 MW plant, so I just ask one more: 2. when you draw a higher electrical current from the E-cat, does the LENR process than increase (become more intense)?
    Thank you and kind regards, Gerard

  1245. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard Mc Ek:
    1- maybe
    2- no
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Congratulations for this new acheivement on your new “baby”.

    Thank you for bringing a new paradigm shift for humanity,

    Now we are closer to STARSHIP ENTERPRISE !

    Kind regards.

    Toussaint François

  1247. Andrea Rossi

    Toussaint:
    Too soon to be said, but the 1 MW plants are already industrial products, the E-Cat X is a prototype. The invention of the direct electricity production has been made yesterday while I was working alone on the E-Cat X, then the lab in which it is working has been closed and since then I allow nobody in, and it will be so until this preliminar testing period will not have been completed and the related patent application will have been made.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1248. Alessandro Coppi

    Hi Andrea,
    we can start to see beyond the fog: if you can choose the greater part of production between heat and electric energy, it seem that the electricity production could be more than fifty percent of the nominal power, an unbelievable condition! we are going to override chemical fire and rotating alternators.
    If this is not a dream, from the stone age, this is the bigger step forward for mankind.

    Alessandro Coppi

  1249. Andrea Rossi

    Alessandro Coppi:
    Remember: much work has to be done before we are in front of a product. It is very promising.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Andrea,

    In the E-Cat X now, which is greater: the heat output, or electricity output?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland:
    We can choose.

  1252. Bedy Nurn

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    How can the nickel in the E-Cat X work if the temperature on the surface is above the melting point?
    Thank you if you can answer,
    Bedy

  1253. Andrea Rossi

    Bedy Nurn:
    The temperature upon the surface is hotter than where the nickel seats, due to the e.m. fields.
    Warm Regards,

  1254. Ron Stringer

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    What a Christmas gift! Congratulations on all your accomplishments this year! I hope the new year brings you even greater. Maybe, if all goes well, you will find an even nicer container to work in. Perhaps even a picture on the wall.
    All the best to you, your team and your family.

  1255. Andrea Rossi

    Ron Stringer:
    Thank you, yes the E-Cat X is really going beyond any expectancy: but better work and stay calm, because much work remains to do before be sure it works .
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1256. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    During Ecat-X normal operation, what percentage of the total output power is in the form of electrical energy?

  1257. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    these data are premature, we have to wait until the end of the preliminary tests.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1258. Brokeeper

    Dear Andrea,
    Thank you for leaving the best surprise we could expect under the tree. It is the ‘holy grail’ of new energy the world has been hoping for. But most of all; and I’m sure speaking for most of the LENR community; thank you for your tireless self sacrifice to make this happen along with your team (with F9 in mind).
    With much respect,
    Brokeeper

  1259. Andrea Rossi

    Brokeeper:
    Thank you: working 18 hours per day soomething good had par force to pop out… thanks also to the sustain of you all.
    Warm Regards,

  1260. Congratulations Andrea Rossi! That’s wonderful news. If this new ECat X could benefit from incorporating a very low cost, highly stable and long lived capacitor technology, exhibiting stable capacitance across a range of frequencies and temperatures, please be sure to contact eestor corporation.

    The company is about to engage in joint ventures talks with various cap makers.

    They also have a program to explore possible energy storage aspects of their technology with the help of the University of Akron Polymer Chemists.

    First of all, congratulations on your latest achievements! Could you perhaps tell us whether the E-Cat X is producing AC or DC?

    Best regards,
    Andreas Moraitis

    Andreas Moraitis:
    DC, that obviously can be inverted into AC with the inverters.
    Warm Regards,

    Thank you, but before chanting victory I have to complete the work. But I am so happy of what I saw yesterday…
    Warmest Regards,

    Hi Andrea
    Let us know some more about the Santa gift:
    How much high efficiency in electricity production? beyond 1 percent? (with respect to the nominal power of e-cat x)

    Buon lavoro!

    High.
    Data after the end of the first phase of the tests on course.
    Warm Regards,
