    Hi Andrea,
    I see a great business, perhaps the bigger in the first phase of the spreading of the e-cat technology: introducing a bit more of COP in the range of appliances “heat generators”, in the simplest way possible.
    Pizza and bread ovens, stove both electrically supplied and methane, etc.
    Nobody would purchase an appliance without this plus that will make save for instance also only 20 percent of the bill like now make the condensation methane boilers that have made obsolete the non condensating technology.

    Best regards
    Alessandro Coppi

    Dear Andrea, While viewing the plasma I can see what I understand as energy interaction. It is of three distinct parts within a magnetic flow from positive to negative. The positive being at the top but looking down as it is side ways on and the negative at the base with the manufactured neutral central position. The neutral being a free agent is able to escape, the negative forms the containment providing an ’economy flow’ i.e. an exterior feed back to the positive due to the internal flow from positive to negative. The colours are representative of the pressures. The yellow bands entering the positive represent the ‘economy flow’ re entering full pressure. The plasma is a manufactured three part structure with short life lifespans of its manufactured neutral i.e. virtual particles. What I can see is the same activity of the plasma as I have observed in the mechanical unifying field oscillator. I believe energy interaction whether on the atomic scale or the sub atomic produces similar effects with regards its interaction. The sub atomic being of course more intense, volatile and active but because hydrogen is the manipulated medium of the sk e-cat, the energy of the neutral is soft compared to the energy of a conventional nuclear power plant. I realize there is no technical value in this information but to inform you that from my observations and understanding your technology is providing visual confirmation of energy interaction and a resultant produced product being a manufactured neutral and it has to be remembered that the heat produced is from two dimensions, one of which being positive and the other being negative. Regards Eric Ashworth.

    Dear mr Rossi. My home from 1915 in south of Norway has a winter requirement of 10-15 kW. There is currently 3 generations of water heat equipment connected to the system: A coal furnace from 1960, an electrical element from about the same time and a recent low-priced air to water heat pump.

    With a degree in physics I am waiting to upgrade to an ecat device and I have been avoiding costly upgrades. So I am wondering how long it will take until such a product can be available for home use, and I would be honored to be an early customer.

    I have registered on your waiting list some years ago.

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    I don’t understand your answers, probably because I don’t know which answer applies to you which question.
    I will rephrase them numbering the questions:

    1. Who is imposing the NDA, a) your company or b) the customers?
    2. In case the answer to 1. Is b). Can a customer disclose they are using your product if they decide so?
    3. What are the terms of the NDA? (In general)
    4. Is the total COP of the apparatus part of the NDA?
    5. If the answer to 4. Is yes, why has this inclosed in the NDA? (not being the COP intellectual property)
    6. From your statement I understand that you have been contacted from America, EUrope, Cina, Russia and Africa after the presentation. Can you tell us how many contracts are currently being discussed?

    Kind Regards,

    Lib

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    The introduction of the E-Cat in the market will soon allow you to supply heat and/or steam at prices much lower than those of the market.
    Although at the beginning there will be relatively few plants that hopefully will grow in number, this will not significantly change the current economic and political balance in the world.
    But the disruptive capacity of the E-Cat is immense, and sooner or later it could bother someone.
    I know you’ve said many times that all energy can work together, but others may not agree.
    If I have a pebble in the shoe that bothers me to walk, I remove the pebble in order to continue doing my business.
    I’m a little worried …

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    From the question of Michel of Feb 5th, it seems that your customers will be subject to an NDA. Then you answered that this is because customers don’t want to be harassed.
    Who is imposing the NDA? Your company or the customers?
    What happens in the case a customer actually wants to be arassed?
    What are the terms of the NDA?
    Is the apparatus total energy input/output part of the NDA?

    If your company has imposed the NDA over energy input/output , not being that info intellectual property can you then explain us why?

    Kind Regards,

    Lib

  • Mario Menichella

    Dear Andrea,
    my congratulations for the “Ballerina concerto”, which I appreciated in a special way due to my physical background. In my view, it is the best conclusion of a cycle of about 14 years of your experiments / refinements / efforts of various type, which would deserve a major public recognition (I mean not only by Brian…).

    I have read your blog since 2011, but in the last 12 months you still gave with generosity in terms of time and committement so many answers that probably I missed some of them. So I beg your pardon if my following question has already been posted before by others (may be not).

    I read in the Appendix of your paper with Gullstrom (July 2017) that in the ractor (at the time a QuarkX prototype) that the ractor contained LiAlH4. As I imagine that you need to vacuum the tube and it is not clear to me how you can insert a powder in an evacuated tube, I imagined that the presence of LiAlH4 was a Gullstrom’s hypothesis and not an “official” info you was giving to him/us.

    So, my question is: (1) in such old paper, did you officially – I mean as Andrea Rossi – (a) say that in the QuarkX you tested there is LiAl4 or (b) is it only a Gullstrom’s hypothesis? And (2), if you can say it or at least let us imagine in some way, is the LiAlH4 present also in your marvelous E-Cat SK, being apparently, to our old aficionados, a quite similar reactor (except for the nice “dancing”, hehe)? :-)

    Thank you in advance for your answers, and my best wishes for your work and health!

    Mario

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    Did you have a reaction from any potential buyer after the presentation of your product?Any new customer approached you after the launch?
    You said that you would publish the number of new contracts or customers on your site, but you didn’t. Why not? Could you number to us the amount of new customers you have so far?
    Could you tell us from which countries the customers are contacting you from?

    Kind Regards,

  • Alessandro Coppi

    Hi Andrea,
    theoretically, using a bit of your technology would be possible to realize a simple 1 or 2 kW stove, with a COP limited to about 1.5 with none, or a simplified control panel? a such appliance would be a great improvement in reducing CO2 emissions and energy bill.
    Please, answer if theoretically this would be possible, independently if you are not interested in.

  • Sven

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I have appreciated very much today the website
    http://www.ecatskdemo.com
    and I have gone through all the links of the menu that appears at the beginning of it.
    I think that you launched well the Ecat SK, also considering which is now your selected target.
    Very strong theoretical support, very convincing demonstration, notwithstanding the problem of your voice, that anyway has been artificially improved in the edited links on http://www.ecatskdemo.com
    Curiosity: are you making contracts stimulated from the presentation?
    Please take care of your health,
    Alexandra

  • Mylan

    Dear Andrea,
    you wrote Aftenposten that you expect SK heat to be 50% cheaper than any other heat source. I thought that you would guarantee only 20%. Does that mean that you guarantee 20% but expect savings to be higher? Or do you mean that you could reach 50% in the future?

  • Michel

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    It seems that all your customers will be subject to a non-disclosure clause, like the current client of whom we know nothing.
    How is this compatible with a rapid diffusion of the reactor to the market?

    Michel

  • Hi folks:

    The following links are very much off-topic – having nothing at all to do with LENR – but they do have direct relevance to some postings here about one year ago regarding Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies. By all means take a look at these links, regarding two entirely different cases, if you find the topic of interest.

    Carissimo Andrea,

    for to heat my home (160 mq – condensing boiler e radiant pannels ).
    I want “ballerina” in my home….I sleep with her and I will take care of her as if it were my daughter.

    Saluti speciali dal Lago!!!

  • Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi,

    would you like to tell us what is being cooled by the cooling system?

    I find it intriguing that you count it for heat production. To heat a building or a greenhouse, that is certainly relevant. But to heat a liquid through a heat exchanger, the heat from the cooling system will not really be useful.

    Not that I see a problem there, because inverters of solar panels also achieve efficiencies of 98% at best.

    But I would like your vision on that.

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

  • Dear Dr Rossi

    I am still a little confused on the COP of the system when you have more than one reactor. From what I have gathered is that one controller can operate up to 10 ecat reactors. If we assume the power consumption is 0 watts or very close to it for the reactors and the controller consumes approx 380watts, does this mean that 10 Ecat units each producing 20Kw giving a total of 200Kw and one controller is the COP of the total system now 200/0.38 = 526.

    Thank you

  • Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    Would you be willing to cooperate with the following:
    Assume the readers of ECW will hire an attorney who should ask of some customers of you the input energy and output energy over a period of an E-Cat plant in operation. The attorney keeps the names of your customers secret and he is free to pick some of your customers from a list, of customers that have agreed with you to cooperate with the attorney. You will show the attorney that picklist. To persuade customers to cooperate, you may offer them a reduction in price for the delivered heat during the first year or so.
    In this way the performance is verified by an independent body and the NDA is not violated (customer has agreed with it). The readers of ECW will provide you an official certificate that we have verified the performance of your Ecat with regards to COP. That should boost the sales, we expect, and we have our long wanted official verification of your LENR technology. Then the Era of the New Fire has finally begun.
    Thanks and kind regards, Gerard

  • Marco

    Dear Andrea,

    From your description, it seems that the ECat is similar to the old fashioned neons: a starter (the control panel), a resistor (actually a reactance in the case of the neon) in series and a plasma.

    Have you tried to study the well known (i think) physics of an old fashioned neon to see if it fits for the ECat? This because modern energy saving light bulbs, pre-LED, have substituted starter and reactance with a switching circuit, much more efficient. Could this be the key to increase the efficiency of the ECat driver? What do you think?

    Reactive regards,
    Marco.

    Rodney Nicholson:
    Yes, you are correct.

  • Hi Andrea:

    OK. So an E-Cat SK reactor operating in SSM consumes a microscopically small quantity of continuous electric power?

    Am I right in assuming that to start up an E-Cat SK from cold requires more electric input than SSM? And that this start up amount is trivial where a reactor operates in SSM pretty much continuously 350 days of the year?

    Thank you.

    Rodney.

    Italo R.:
    Let me repeat: I stick on what I wrote on
    http://www.ecatskdemo.com

  • Andrea Rossi

    Rodney Nicholson:
    You are absolutely not irritating, why should you be ?
    I am delighted to answer the questions of our Readers.
    The number you calculated is what I call SSM.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Hi Andrea:

    At risk of becoming irritating – I hope I am not, I certainly do not mean to be:

    I now see – sorry, silly me – that the current moving from the control panel to the reactor must be 0.0032 amps. So the watts consumed by the reactor must be just 0.0008, as the presentation had pointed out.

    Since the reactor’s heat output is 21,942 watts, the CoP of the reactor itself must be 27.4 million, before any adjustment for the length of time spent in SSM.

    Have I gotten it right this time?

    And clarification of the definition of SSM would be much appreciated.

    Thank you for your patience with me about this.

    27.4 million kindest regards.

    Rodney.

  • Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    Some people ask for details about the reactor’s COP.
    Your calculations are clearly readable, but I made a brief summary as I have understood.
    The reactor without plasma has infinite electrical resistance, it is an open circuit.
    When there is the plasma, its resistance becomes almost zero, a negligible value.
    When the reactor is operating, a very low current of 3.2 mA passes, and there is almost no electrical consumption in the reactor.
    In fact, with a very low current in a resistance tending to zero, the consumption is practically nothing.
    The only measurable consumption is in the electrical resistance put in series with the reactor (78 ohms), that is 0.0008 W.
    The necessity of this resistance is to limit the current when there is the plasma, otherwise, there would be a short-circuit.

    This fact shows that in reality, the reactor alone has an incredibly own high COP, not even measurable, since in input it consumes almost nothing, while in output it supplies kW of power.
    In such circumstances, the reactor is in self-sustaining mode.
    Am I correct?

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.
