  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Are you using the factory’s existing heating ducts and vents to deliver the E-Cat heat, or is it a separate delivery system?

    Best wishes,

    Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea!
    I am deeply perplexed by the position of most representatives of the so-called “official science”, who for almost a decade did not notice the gigantic advancement of your technology from the first demonstration in January 2011 to the demonstration in Stockholm and the announced demonstration of the industrial design in January 2019. And now, suddenly, publications about the results of experiments confirming your great technology have gone, but without mentioning your name.

    The curiosity of the situation lies in the fact that in the above publications they are even now afraid to mention your name, and this fully characterizes the unscrupulousness of these people. It is possible that similar publications went as a result of the fact that a demonstration of an industrial design would put them in a foolish position and the question would be asked, can these people be considered scientists?
     With admiration for your work and best wishes,

  • Hergen

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    What is the power (kw) of the e-cat SK to heat the factory?

    Can you adjust the power of the e-cat SK to temperatur changes outside the factory?

    Thank you,

    Hergen

  • Andrea Rossi

    Giovanni:
    I tink so,

    Prof:
    I do not like these clashes, though. Many very good and honest physicists are working on the hot fusion and this is a fact. Michel is one of them.
    Warm Regards,

  • Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Yes.
    Warm Regards,

  • Prof

    Kudos for your answer to Michel

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Is the 25 degrees inside the factory where you say you are now working, currently being provided by an E-Cat SK?

    Warm regards,

    Frank Acland

  • Giovanni

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Is the Ecat SK you talked about yesterday the one that will be shown at the January 31st presentation?
    Best Regards,
    Giovanni

  • Andrea Rossi

    Sam:
    That’s what we are doing, if I have understood your comment properly.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Michel:
    There is a big difference and a false statement in your answer to Eric Ashworth:
    1- difference: LENR has taken not a single cent from the taxpayer, while you guys have got with the EATER ( erroneously dubbed ITER ) over thirty billion dollars for a technology – that yes- that has produced nothing
    2- false statement: LENR have put nothing in commerce
    About the term “fusion”: you continue to use such term without doubts ( so you are the ones that have no doubts ) because you have the singular privilege to be allowed to repeat every 20 years that the fusion will be made within 20 years.
    On the contrary, you all know perfectly that to stabilize a magnetic field at 100 million K is more difficult than to make a camel pass through a needleeye, but still continue to milk the taxpayer. By the way: the comment of Eric Ashworth was much more aggressive against you and I edited it to turn it soft, because I wanted not you to be attacked…but you are looking for blood, my friend.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Michel

    Dear Eric Ashworth,

    It is still difficult today to say whether the prospect of a net-energy producing fusion reactor is realistic or not. Some physicists do not believe it, with their arguments, but the majority of them are convinced that we will reach this ultimate goal. All major countries have committed to this path and all have a fusion reactor (China, USA, France, India, Korea, Russia, Germany, UK …): do you believe that so many institutes and prestigious research organizations would all be in a certain dead-end way? …
    Fusion technology is progressing. Which was impossible yesterday, became with time. I am thinking in particular of superconductors, the only technology that makes it possible to maintain plasma over long periods of time.
    Yes the deadlines are long, and the cost of these machines keep growing as the size of the new reactors like ITER and it’s successor DEMO. This is the price to pay to know … Ask yourself how much will have cost the most complex machine built by men to know, I mean the LHC.
    You talk about 70 years of research on fusion, I could remind you that LENR (the new name of the cold fusion, the word “fusion” beeing quickly abandoned) have not put anything on the market over 40 years, since the experiments of Dr. Fleshman and Pons.
    The fusion reaction is well documented and understood all over the world, in fact a very simple reaction. Still no equivalent for LENRs for which there are hundreds of theories on the web …

    Regards,

    Michel

    Hello Dr Rossi

    Can you comment on this question?

    What is your opinion on the process of operating and controlling the installed SK plants (e.g. the one from which you will live stream on Jan 31st) via internet in case there is no electricity (maybe not even a GSM/LTE network) because of power fails, cyber attacks, natural desasters etc… ?

    Regards
    Sam

  • Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    This is probably what I will show on January 31. It will not be a house, will be the factory of a client of us, where I am now and we have 3 Celsius degrees below zero outside and a caressing +25 C degrees inside. First day of work today.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Winter has come early to the US Midwest!

    I am looking forward to you saying this: “We have an application on course wherein the SK heats the air in the HOUSE”. A 20 % discount to my home heating bill would be a nice start!

    Cool regards,

    Frank Acland

  • Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    We have an application on course wherein the SK heats the air in the factory. The Ecat can heat whatever exchanges heat with her.

  • Andrea Rossi

    keV:
    Honestly, no, I did not think about that, but it is a too narrow niche to be focused on for the time being.
    Thank you anyway for your suggestion,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    What kind of heating at the factory? Air for the room using in example a fan, or water circulating in the radiators? Or…? I apologize for my excessive curiosity.

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

  • keV

    Hi Andrea,

    Have you considered the use of your discovery in the field of helium air ships?

    1. As with air, heated helium increases lift yes.

    2. Some heat could also be converted to electricity to power the propellers.

    I think you could revive an industry that has been waiting a century for a lightweight energy power plant, realising the dream of cheaper and inherently safer transport of goods and people.

    Regards,
    keV

    What is used for the Ecat SK that we will watch during the streaming of January 31st?

  • JPR

    Can the fluid heated by the Ecat SK be also air?

  • Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,

    1. Just a hypothetical question:
    If the 40MW unit you are developing for your customer and partner is going to produce electricity, would the generated power be enough for the Ecat-SK’s driving the turbine?
    I know you do not want to do that for safety reasons but the question is just from a energy balance point of view.

    I am sure your answer is ‘yes’, otherwise you business model is wrong, so how would you qualify the business for both you and your partner:
    A Extremely profitable
    B Very profitable
    C Good business and good for environment

    Thanks if you can answer.
    Kind regards, Gerard

  • Regarding the following link I found by googling “First Utility operated microgrid cluster” as Rod Walton suggested:

    https://www.power-eng.com/articles/2018/11/bronzeville-building-the-first-utility-operated-microgrid-cluster.html

    The following quote from that link would seem to have huge significance to the marketing of Ecats:

    “Experts spanning from the Department of Energy (DOE) to MIT have identified microgrids as a necessary technology to enhance the resiliency of the electric grid from threats ranging from major weather events to cyber-terrorism. In the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, for example, the Department of energy issues a report recommending microgrids as a way to mitigate such tragedies in the future.”

    To mitigate against ‘weather events’, accidents (Fukushima as one example), cyber-terrorism, and other threats, an ideal solution may be to build Ecat SK plants for each town or city of suitable size, distribute the power over the existing local power network, and dispense with the current huge generation plants and long distance transmission costs. That way a terrorist threat might shut down power to a city or two, but not the entire system.

    So the potential for cyberterrorism attacks on the electricity grid might, in addition to the cost advantage, be the single most persuasive argument for making a transition to local Ecat power generation?

    Rodney.

    Dear Andrea,

    Do you mean that you think at the Jan 31 presentation, you will show an E-Cat working at a client’s factory doing actual work for them?

    Thank you very much,

  • Enea Romagnoli

    Dear Andrea

    Oggi ogni fonte di energia ha un nome preciso che ne indica la sua origine, come ad esempio:
    energia da combustione
    energia idroelettrica
    energia fotovoltaica
    energia solare
    energia geotermica
    energia nucleare
    e così via…

    Quale sarà il nome rappresentativo che assegnerai il 31 gennaio all’energia generata da E-CAT?

    Today every source of energy has a precise name that indicates its origin, such as:
    combustion energy
    hydroelectric energy
    photovoltaic energy
    solar energy
    geothermal energy
    nuclear energy
    and so on…

    What will be the representative name that you will assign on January 31 to the energy generated by E-CAT?

    No, I will not return to that sector of work. By the way, my patent, expired years ago, is being used by other specialized companies, like, for example ENI.
    Warm Regards,

  • Harvey

    Dear Andrea

    While reading through your history of struggles and setbacks, I had this thought: I would not be surprised to know that you may have already considered this, but would it not be the ultimate irony if you (or others) were able to use the heat from the SK reactor for the efficient production of low cost and improved quality Refuopetrolio?
    It truly warms my heart to see that so many more people are starting to appreciate your hard work and dedication to this most important journey.

    Best regards,
    Harvey

  • Von Fukuda

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    will we see the SK in operation in a factory during the presentation of January 31st?

  • Eric Ashworth

    @Michel
    you state that the hot fusion physicists have the theory but not the product. They have had the theory 70 years with no success. If something works then it must have a theory but a theory alone could be total nonsense and no doubt is, when considering the time, the effort and the expense involved to overcome an impossible problem as that encountered by the hot fusion physicists. Regards, Eric Ashworth.

  • Andrea Rossi

    KeithT:
    I was referring to the charge, not to the Ecat.
    The lifespan of the Ecat per se should be not less that 20 years. To change the charge every year does not make the life of the Ecat shorter.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Jeff Smathers:
    Amen,
    Warm Regards,

  • KeithT

    Dear Andrea,

    If as you have stated “We did not yet run an Ecat to complete exhaustion”, how do you arrive at an operational lifespan for a Ecat?

    I would expect that through multiple testing at controlled kW outputs you would establish a kW vs lifespan curve / gradient, you could then approximately predict the time elapsed before the controlled output would drop below a specific kW, then using conservative factors determine both the kW rating and operational time span for a Ecat module.

    20 kW and one year are nice round numbers for a commercial launch.

    Regards,

    Keith Thomson.

    To all a modicum of levity…

    In the distant future there became a great conference between God and representatives of man who were great in scientific stature. Man had achieved many wonderful and incredible things in all things. Other cultures throughout the galaxy were also impressed with the changes and abilities from man in so few centuries of efforts using science.

    Proud and uncomfortably boastful, man stood before God and with confidence expressed their desire to be freed of the personal bondage between God and man so they could accept the credit for all of their great accomplishments by their own merit.

    Further explaining …we have taken our world and have improved on every thing and we no longer need your help… God paused and then asked, I will allow this if you can show me how to create a life of the simple earthworm.

    They smiled and agreed… Sometime later they approached God with a gift of mud and squirming within, worms made from the science of man. proudly, they waited.

    God spoke… You must use your own dirt.
