    Robert Curto,

    The U.S. electrical generation system is composed of four types of generation; baseload; seasonal baseload; intermrdiate; and peak. The heaviest consumption of electricity occurs seasonally during the summer and winter months. There is about a 60% variation over a single day in the consumption of electricity – heaviest in the late afternoon and lowest in the early morning hours.

    Since a Carnot cycle is used to generate the electricity (heat water to steam, turbines, etc.), the baseload generation unit is run continuously at the optimum efficiency setting for the overall generation unit. Then intermediate and peak generation is added to meet increased demand. Examples of baseload generation are coal-fired and nuclear plants. I believe this is where Ecat technology will most likely find its first power generation application.

    Robert Curto:
    So far our tech is mature to produce electricity only on industrial scale, using the Carnot cycle.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Dr. Rossi, if you can produce heat and electricity for 90% less cost, with zero emissions, who is going to compete with that ?
    Coal Plants kill, that is a fact.
    Nuke Plants produce Radioactive Rods, that have to be watched for over 100,000 YEARS.
    Solar and Wind work part time.
    I don’t know much about Natural Gas, but it cannot be less expensive then E-Cat.

    Can E-Cat produce electricity for a Condo, with each Apt. using what they need true a Meter ?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Given the progress to date, do you anticipate of the completion of the five sigma testing before the Oct demonstration?

  • Svein Henrik

    Dear Andrea.
    As heating of homes are of considerable important for some billion peoples living in cold parts of the world, have you considered in which form the heating devices may be produced?
    1 May small units as radiators or fan heaters be actual?
    2 May such units be possible to operate without an electrical grid, only support from batteries preferably with thermoelectrical loading devices?
    (Today there is on the marked thermoelectrical fans operating on wood fired furnaces, and units for loading cellphones.)

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi.
    I understand that at the first stage you will manage the units yourself and sell energy.
    1. When do you plan to switch to selling finished products? (one, three, five years?)
    2. Do you plan to separately separate Quark X in the future, separate control systems, for further assembly by the client of various installations for different purposes? Or just finished products?
    3. Will the certification of the installations you use be different and which customers will use or not?
    4. Do you need additional certification for the sale of individual items (Lego)?
    Sorry, maybe it’s too early to ask such questions.
    Presentation at the end of October? Look forward.
    Thank you very much for taking the time to answer our questions.

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi.
    The sale of household heaters E-Cat requires many years for certification. This is true?
    When will you start mass production of Quark X elements and management systems, can a company in a country with simpler certification requirements buy these elements, collect small units (5-10-15 kW) and sell in its market?
    Thank you.

    Dr Rossi:
    What kind of energy will make the E-Cat home?

  • Steve

    Dear Mr Rossi,
    I am sure you are aware of this project, I would ask your thoughts on the possibility of pairing a Quark X array with this.

    http://www.ge.com/reports/call-ecomagination-ge-building-co2-powered-turbine-generates-10-megawatts-fits-table/

    It would seem, to my laymans imagination, that this would be within the Quark X’s range of operation and quite a good match up as the current generator schematic requires about 1/2 of the generated electricity to be used to heat the gas.

  • Greg Leonard

    Dear AR,
    I think the company ABB is helping with your industrial production – producing thousands of e-Cats. It seems ABB can do more things than assembly. Once you have an orchestra of e-Cats, then perhaps they might be conducted by an ABB robot…

    Dear Andrea Rossi and readers,

    The 54 Cats at Hemingway House in Key West survived Hurricane Irma. These cats have 6 toes (per paw) and apparently have more lives as well. Unfortunately, in the overall area affected by Hurricane Irma, there was considerable property damage and, tragically, loss of life and serious injuries. I am posting this, because it may provide a lighter note to this event.

  • Gerard McEk

    Dear Andea,
    Sorry that I continue asking about this further, but as an electrical engineer I find this highly intriguing. When you say that an electrical power plant with an E-cat QX is expected “much earlier” in operation than within 10 years, then plans must be quite developed.
    Can you expand a bit on that e.g.:
    1. Is the power level a: 0.1-1MW; b: 1-5 MW; c: >5 MW?
    2. Will it be in operation in a. 4 years?
    3. Is it based on a steam cycle or an other medium?
    Thanks!
    Kind regards, Gerard

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    As we fret about carbon footprints, I am almost positive some government agency will start restricting wood-based campfires because of their CO2 output. So why not an Ecat based “camp fire”, for keeping warm, a soft glow, roasting marshmellows, etc. I would assume the control unit could be in the tent and the Quark reactor in the fire pit. With suitable “crackling noises” added for ambiance, plus the absolute control of the Quark temperature, and thus its blackbody radiation, a suitable simulated wood campfire could be produced. Plus no worry about starting the fire because of rain or throwing gasoline on the wood to start the fire. When can you produce these — LOL?

    Dr Rossi,

    Word is Maimi Beach electric is still out – are your cats running?

  • Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    Thank you for answering my previous comment although it was not properly closed, sorry.
    I hope you allow me to expand on the question if customers that want to generate electricity had approached you for using the E-cat QX and that you answered positive. Is it likely that within 10 years a E-cat QX plant generates heat for a operational power station?
    Thank you.
    Kind regards, Gerard

    Dear Andrea,
    I have never experienced anything like a cat 4 or 5 Hurricane but after following the story of Irma I was quite stricken by the force of nature and how broad ranging and powerful it can be.

    It occurs to me that In many ways with the e-cat you are looking at the maximum power of nature in the very small while outside nature was showing her strength in the very large.

    I only saw some news pictures of the storm at Cat 3 and already it had awesome power. For those communities that experienced Cat 5 it must have been devastating. I hope despite the obvious damage those communities in the Caribean and Florida are able to recover relatively soon.

    I wonder how responses to these kind of situations can be improved and maybe if one day some technology based on the e-cat can help that. It seemed to me the things most needed quickly are food water and shelter, along with fuel and power. Maybe be a generator that can be brought by Helicopter, boat or truck along with tents and dehydrated food that can make use that generator would help a lot with those things. I know these things can’t happen fast but I have hope that maybe they will be possible someday.

    My best regards to you, your family and team especially those of you who went through this storm.

    Italo R.:
    Infinite particilars very difficult to explain briefly.
    In a nutshell: observatoons of turnolences of ait at 180 km/h in a real asymmetryc field; observation of my reaction in front of this totally new kind of fear and consequent corrections; learnt all the shortcomings should the hurrican have really been of the expected cath 5 (300 km/h): what to do to be safe also in that case.

    Dear Andrea.
    Whether Irma was a result of global warming or not, may be difficult to confirm.
    Chines authorities are now considering possibilities to ban vehicles driven by hydrocarbons.
    The most obvious alternative is vehicles with electric motors.
    One of the most prominent benefits of the QX is the high energy content versus weight.
    One QX, with the approximately weight of 2,5 grams, may submit 200 kWh within a life span of 10 000 hours of use. This is about the same amount of energy as in 20 kg gasoline.
    A bundle of 6 kg QX (2400 pieces) may submit a continuous heat of 48 kWh.
    This may be enough to produce 16 kWh electricity through the Carnot cycle.
    With help from a battery of the size of 1/10 of a standard Tesla battery, a lightweight car may function well with this power source.
    (When not on the road, such a car may also provide the owners house with electricity.)
    For the drive alone, in average 2 hours a day, the QX bundle will last for 14 years and reduced the CO2-pollution directly with approx. 120 tons. (The lack of need for production and transport of hydrocarbons will increase this amount.)
    This may not reduce the price of cars or the cost of using cars since the cost of the roads will still be the same, but the global warming and local air-pollutions may be reduced very much.
    I hope your decision of selling energy do not prevents developing solutions for such a use.
    Regards: Svein Henrik.

  • Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    Thanks God you have survived Irma. I hope you did not have many difficulties with any services like power, water, telephone etc. or flooding around the building during her passage?
    Just another question crossed my mind lately. There are many customers approaching you. Were there any customers that have asked you to deliver heat for an electrical power generation unit? Would you be prepared to go into a joined venture with such a customer in short terms?

  • Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, you have been the witness of very inusual and dangerous phenomenons as you have written:
    “..We have a tornado now.
    I can see from a small window a very interesting pattern of vortexes produced from some geometries. Very interesting…”

    “…It has been a very interesting experience, under many points of view.
    I learnt many things in these days…”

    Is it possible for you, having time, to tell us more details? Thank you
    Kind regards,
    Italo R.

    Hi Andrea,

    That’s great news for Miami! Thank you for the update,

    Tom

  • Andrea Rossi

    To All concerned about:
    at 6.30 PM Irma is gone from the area around Miami; she moved toward west.
    We have not been damaged, but now we will have to manage the flooding. In my specific situation I did not have any damage or delay and I worked all the time through during these 2 days.
    Unfortunately the hit has been tremendous in the Keys.
    I want to thank all of you that sent explicit or spiritual sustain.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.
