    Dear Andrea,
    Do take the time to update your knowledge about latest developments in the market.

    For another example see:

    Australia has the capacity to store up to 1,000 times more renewable energy than it could ever conceivably need, using pumped hydro, according to an analysis by researchers at the Australian National University (ANU). It can go from zero to full power in about one minute. Dr Stocks said.

    Andrea,

    I respect your opinions greatly, but you and others are very mistaken about the current cost of solar generation. The current cost of unsubsidized solar generation is between 35 and 55 dollars per MWh. Please see this article for further information regarding the current cost of just about all types of energy generation modalities.

    Please have a look at this article. “https://cleantechnica.com/2017/05/24/tucson-utility-inks-deal-solar-power-costs-less-3-cents-per-kilowatt-hour/”

    Sincerely,

    Robert Dorr

    And a developer plans four subsidy free solar farms in the UK, a country not famous for sunny weather…

    Soon only fossil fuels will still be subsidised.

  • Colin Watters

    Dear Mr Rossi,

    This solar project in Dubai needs no subsidy to compete with gas. It uses PV and CSP and generates at night.

    Christopher Calder:
    I worked since when I was 20 years old to when I was 40 years old in the field of the BACT ( Best Available Control Technologies) to make sustainable the emissons from the combustion of polluting fuels, among which coal. As a consequence of this experience I assure you that, with proper technologies, coal can be burnt in a sustainable way. On the contrary, so far the gurus of the solar stuff have still to give evidence of the fact that the solar-religion-sustained apparatuses are able to compete in the field of energy production without the funding coming from the bills paid to the taxpayers.
    The MWh produced with thermoelectric generators fueled by coal supplied by BACT anti-pollution plants costs 35-50 $.
    The MWh produced with solar devices costs between 300 and 400 $ (the energy produced by solar apparatuses is a small fraction of their power, because the sun shines only a small portion of a day, as an average, on this planet) and the difference is paid by the taxpayer ( look carefully at your bills ).
    This is the fact and the hypocrisy that makes the halo around the solar myth is destroying jobs. I have nothing to earn to write this, but I can’t stand persons that try to destroy honest people only because the “destroyers” are not able to compete on a fair ground.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea.
    Steven N. Karels is correct in pointing that solar energy is totally dependent of a storage facility.
    The price of the storing devices must be added to cost of the sun collectors.
    Solar energy may be used as a supply to a coal fired plant, which is almost impossible to regulate as the sun shifts trough a day and even day/night. The sun-plant must then be able to cover the costs of the high idle charge of the coal-plant.
    A gas fired plant is far easier to regulate, but the cost of having such a plant ready without production must be covered by the solar plant since this is dependent of the gas fire for supply in nights and days with a low solar intensity, and not vice versa.
    How nuclear power plants functions in cooperation with solar plants is not a part of my knowledge.

    Solar energy functions best in cooperation with hydropower, as this is quick and easy to regulate and there are a “build in” function of power-storage in the dam. To save water in dry periods with lots of sunshine is a benefit for owners of a hydropower works. (A surpluss of solar energy may also be used to pump back water to the dam.)
    To calculate the actual price of solar energy is not an easy target.
    For a E-cat powered plant calculation will be far easier when the details of performance and the price of the E-cats are available and sigma 5 dependability is achieved.

  • Dear Mr. Rossi,

    The worship of solar energy, windmills, and the irrational fear of carbon have become a religion and a powerful political force. Members of this new religion make false posts all over the Internet about how cheap solar and wind power are, yet they all still insist solar and wind must be mandated and subsidized. Obviously, if they were telling the truth about the low cost and efficiency of wind and solar projects, you would not have to force and bribe anyone to buy them. They have no respect for free markets and free choice.

    A great mental antidote to this new false religion is to watch “THE GLOBAL WARMING FAD – Paleoclimatologist Bob Carter: Climate Context As A Basis For Better Policy” on YouTube. The professor is truly brilliant and quite funny as well.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The use of solar technology to generate electricity is viable as only a member of an integrated approach. Obviously, solar does not work at night. So energy storage during the daylight hours for later use to provide electricity during the evening hours would be required if solar were to be used for Baseload (continuous) purposes. Some techniques propose to use molten salts (heated by solar power during the day and tapped that heat during the evening) but there are many inefficiencies involved (turn solar electricity to heat tp warm the molten salts, cooling losses, then the Carnot cycle to generate steam and then to produce electricity). A solar-only approach is not compatible with our current electrical society.

    Ecat Technology (if it is real and can be economically implemented) suggests Baseload operation – 24 x 7 operation for a year, continuous output level power. The energy solution requires an integrated approach. Solar could drop to near $0 per MWhr and Solar would still be so limited.

    Australia is a great place to produce solar electricity — lots of unused land, desert, with an abundance of sunlight (insolation). They could become the solar electricity source for the world if there was a way to transport the electrical power to other places. But they are 1/2 a world away from the US and Europe. So their day time is our night time. If economical and environmentally safe electrical power transmission technologies were developed, then a world wide solar-based electrical system might be feasible. But, as of now, it is for sci-fi writers only to dream of. But there would be transmission losses and likely environmental impacts.

    Update of this important day?

  • Svein Henrik

    Dear Andrea.
    I reckon the test today will turn out very well.
    I also think there may be some important officials present.
    As your strategy is to sell heat until the very affordably QX are ready for the marked, I have two questions:
    1-When do you anticipate such a robotized production line are ready for mass production?
    2-Will OEMs in different industries be informed of the possibilities in the period before the mass production occurs?
    Regards: Svein Henrik

  • Simone Primanello

    Can you say the price per kWh of your solutions?
    Prices of solar plants dropped to 0.0299 $/kWh

  • Yrka

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi.
    You (Leonardcorp) are going to sell only finished products?
    I’m interested in the opportunity to buy a lot of Quark X, many control systems and make their heat exchangers for consumers.
    Do you need a certificate to sell me all these “Lego cubes”?
    Maybe I’ll make two power stations or two million home heaters.
    Are you going to sell houses, or materials for building houses?

    Thank you for your work.
    Bow to your patient wife.
    I’m waiting for the presentation in October.

    Dear Andrea,
    With respect, may I recommend you review your knowledge about solar and government subsidy. This is now falling a lot and in fact the fossil fuel power generation industry is the one heavily subsidised.

    Best regards,
    Patrick

    Quote from http://www.solarcitizens.org.au/myths


    MYTH: Renewable energy can’t compete economically with burning coal for power.

    FACT: The fossil fuel industry is heavily subsidised.

    The energy market in Australia is not a level playing field. The fossil fuel-based electricity system we have today is built on government subsidies, and fossil fuels continue to enjoy government assistance. For example, the Tamberlin Inquiry in NSW revealed that the government-owned Cobbora coal mine sold coal to power stations ‘at cost price’ (roughly 30 per cent of the price paid by other generators on the open market), which meant that: ‘…State-owned generators and gentraders [had] access to coal at a lower price than would have been available to them had they had to source such coal through a tender process.’

    This amounts to a subsidy of around $4 billion over the life of the contracts, and it is just one example of where taxpayers are footing the bill.

    On top of that, fossil fuels have been subsidised by not having to pay for the greenhouse gases they produce, and for the other health and environmental impacts they cause.

    Analysis published in the American Economic Review calculated that the economic damage caused by air pollutants from coal burning (in terms of health impacts and local pollution) exceeds the value of the electricity produced.”

    Dear Andrea,
    With respect to your E-Cat jet engine experiments– it seems that there would be some commonality between jet engines (for aircraft) and microturbines (for a relatively compact form of power generation), do you think that your jet engine experiments could someday open the way towards generating electric power in that fashion?
