    Daryl:
    Our company will, yes.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Daryl

    Mr Rossi,
    when you will launch the Ecat after completing the industrialization process, will you involve also the main media?

  • Robert

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    The drawings to manufacture the 1 MW Ecat QX have been already done?

  • Osvaldo

    Dr Rossi,
    Do you think the bitcoins could be a financing source for the Ecat?
    Cheers
    Osvaldo

    Now Leonardo is projected toward a massive industralization and nobody would invest enough in a non profit company. So far we have been a boat, now we must become a carrier. At least, it is what we are thinking of.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • >> Some time ago you had mentioned that eventually Leonardo would become a publicly traded company.
    > Yes, it will happen

    I am wondering if it might be worth considering to make Leonardo a not-for-profit corporation. I have worked for a very large not-for-profit with many many patents and products. The advantage (as an employee) are that there are no stockholders to cause problems and instability. Also it appears that Leonardo is focused on science and discovery as much as it is on profit. It appears that Leonardo has done well so far without needing a huge influx of stockholder cash.

    Perhaps something to consider, perhaps not.

    Dear Andrea:
    FYI, heat to electricity; 10 nanometer materials enable three times the conversion of heat to electricity

    Patrick Ellul:
    Yes, it will happen after the industrialization and the sales of the Ecat QX will have been started.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    In the article linked by Gianfranco Regalzi on his comment of 2018-01-18 at 05.48 A.M., there is a photo taken during the Stockholm event wherein you have a plaster stuck on your forehead, but in all the other photos you had not it: what happened?
    Cheers
    Luke

  • Patrick Ellul

    Dear Andrea,
    Some time ago you had mentioned that eventually Leonardo would become a publicly traded company. Is this still on the cards and what would need to happen beforehand?
    Regards

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    In terms of your goals for industrialization of the E-Cat, would you say at this point you are:

    a) Ahead of schedule
    b) On schedule
    c) Behind schedule

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

    Chuck Davis:
    Let’s start making heat, albeit after the industrial plants will be on the market I too think there will be an exponential development, if all goes well.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Chuck Davis

    It is exciting to imagine our homes, cars, boats,planes fueled by the Ecat QX. I don’t think it will take too much after the beginning of the industrialization process and the sales on the market of the QX.
    Godspeed,
    Chuck Davis

  • Andrea Rossi

    Stephen:
    Yes, theoretically it is possible. In reality, it has to be done to be verified. We can say whatever we want, but at the end what will be real will be what will have been made and sold and it will be sold only if it will be economically convenient and environmentally sustainable. I am optimist, based on what I am seeing, but what count are facts, not words.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Stephen

    Dear Andrea.

    Could a 1MW plant be configured in such a way to supply say 100kW over 10 years or 50 kW over 20 years for example?

    I’m curious if it could be used in remote locations with a suitable external power supply over long durations.

    If it is also quite small and light this would potentially be quite useful in some applications.

    Best Regards

    Stephen

  • Andrea Rossi

    Gennady:
    Yes, I have. But we will give the data only at the presentation of the product. What we still do not have is a definite design aesthetically speaking. All I can say, it will be surprisingly small.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Gennady

    Dear Andrea,

    I know that I am repeating Toussaint Francois’s question, but do you have a design set for a new 1 MW e-cat QX standalone plant size (width, height, length, weight)?

    Regards,

    Gennady

  • Andrea Rossi

    Hubert:
    1 MW.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dewey:
    Because it is easier to put in series and parallel modules whose structural problems have been resolved.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    R:
    Much smaller.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • R

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Will be the dimensions of the 1 MW plants smaller than the container-sized 1 MW Ecat tested in Doral?

  • Dewey

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Why the assembly of 250 control circuits is easier that the realization of one control box for a 4 kW unit?
    Cheers
    Dewey

  • Hubert

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Can you foresee what will be the standard size of an industrial plant?
    Thanks if you can answer,
    Hubert

  • Andrea Rossi

    Toussaint Francois:
    Much smaller than the 1 MW plant of the frmer generation.
    We will give the numbers when ready.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,

    Welcome Volvo to your customer prospect lists, if they are not already on the list.

    Quoted from Rossi’s E-Cat Production Plans E-Cat World website:

  • Toussaint françois

    Dear Andrea Rossi

    Congratulations for the fast progression of your E-CAT QX towards industrialization.

    What would be the size of a 1 Mega Watt E-CAT QX ?

    Warm Regards.

    Toussaint François

  • Andrea Rossi

    Buck:
    Yes.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    The cluster of 100 QX is more complex.
    Thank you for the insight,
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.,
    Correct
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, I suppose that the 100 QXs inside the cluster are electrically connected in parallel. Is it right?
    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

  • Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    I understand that the QX is integrated with the controller(s), but theoretically if you consider both of these components at the same time for a moment, which of the two is more complex, the cluster of 100 QX modules or the cluster of 250 controllers that could each run 100 QX? (25,000 QX units)

    Great progress!
    Thank you for your updates.

    Tom

    ………….

    It would probably be more exciting to know that you are moving into perfecting the controller master-boxes at this point, and that the QX modules are “simply stable” at this point.

    Hopefully, you are not having issues with both the QX and the Controllers …

    As I wrote this, it occurs to me to wonder if you are writing the code for controllers in machine language instead of compiling a high level language into a much larger unit of logic. Machine language would run very much faster, and frequency control would be simplified… The physical management of larger code blocks would also be slightly more expensive to manufacture – unless done very professionally.

  • Buck

    Good Day Andrea

    Your recent comments suggest a modularization of the QXs into several larger standard configurations: 1 QX @ 40W = singlet, 100 QXs @ 4kW = unit, 250 units @ 1MW = ?, 25 ? @ 25MW = ??

    Have you and your engineering team come to an understanding that there are rational sizes for the E-Cat product line from the customer perspective, ie, the marketing perspective?

    Best regards to you and your growing team

    Buck

  • Andrea Rossi

    Mats Heijkenskjold:
    You are right, but the 250 circuitries will be contained in a single box much smaller that 250 x the box you saw in the Stockholm event at the IVA.
    Thank you for your attention,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    1- no
    2- yes, 100 QX modules with one controller

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    About the prototype that you have made:

    1. So far is it a single QX reactor with a controller

    OR

    2. Is it multiple QX reactors connected to a single controller. If so, how many QXs?

    Thank you very much,

    Frank Acland

  • Piccola curiosità.
    Può far sorridere e al tempo stesso riflettere.
    E in ogni caso l’importante è che se ne parli.
    Tu ricordi certamente di quello che scrisse Plutarco del cane di Alcibiade!…

    Con stima ed affetto dall’Italia che segue i tuoi progressi.
    Che Iddio ti aiuti.
    ENGLISH nutshell:

  • Mats Heijkenskjold

    Dear Andrea,

    In your answer to Frank Acland you mentioned that each 4 kW unit or “section” has its own control system. A heater of 1MW therefore consists of around 250 smaller “sections” with their own seperate control systems.
    Is this correct?
    I am a Little bit puzzled of the number of controllers?
    Could you comment, please.

    Warm regards and thank you for your important work,
    Mats Heijkenskjold

    It has been increased, but we will publish the numbers at the product presentation.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Bongo Raffaele

    Dear Andrea

    You have solved the overheating problem of the control module and therefore reduced the energy consumption of the control module. Can you tell us what is the COP of a 4 Kw unit including the consummation of the control module?

    Best regards
