    Roberto Ridolfi:
    I think that it has been important the fact that theoretical hypothesis have been surrogated by the experiment described in the article and by the video of it ( http://www.ecatskdemo.com ).

    Dear Andrea,
    your paper
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    continues to be the most read paper of nuclear physics. How do you explain it?

    Watching
    http://www.ecatskdemo.com
    I noticed that it seems to be ready for a massive production, also for domestic use, especially if you will be able to make both heat and electricity. It will be a global game changer.
    Are you not afraid of it?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Gian:

  • Caro Andrea.
    dopo più di 8 anni di frequentazione via e-mail, quasi mi considero di famiglia e mi permetto di rivolgermi a te usando il tu.
    1)Ritieni di poterci informare su quando il primo eCat-SK dell’ultima versione fra quelli forniti recentemente potrà entrare in funzione?
    2) potrà già essere utilizzato alla sua massima potenza?

    A te un calorosissimo saluto e la riconoscenza per quanto con tanto impegno e sacrificio hai fatto e fai nell’interesse di tutta l’Umanità.
    English synopsis:
    1- has already been put in operation the Ecat SK we watched on http://www.ecatskdemo.com ?
    2- is it already working at its max power ?

    Che Dio ti aiuti. Gian

    Saju Abraham:
    Good question: we have to abide to the first principle of thermodynamic, therefore all the electric energy that will be extracted from the plasma will have to be subtracted from the thermal energy, but the electric energy has more value, because to make one Wh of electric energy you need to spend about 3 Wh of thermal energy, when you have to turn into electricity the thermal energy.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    1. Can you give us some comment on your investigations on the direct electricity production of the Ecat?
    2. Are you happy with the sales of heat so far?
    3. Is the production of the E-Cat heat-plants satisfactory?
    4. Are your customers, using your heat, still satisfied?
    5. Have you still time to play tennis with your wife?
    I really do hope things are going well. Good luck to you and your team.!
    Thanks. Kind regards, Gerard

  • Saju Abrahan

    Respected Dr Andrea Rossi,
    when you produce electric energy directly from plasma will it affect the heat efficiencyof the Ecat, or will be electricity just a by-product?
    Regards,
    Saju Abraham

  • Steven N. Karels

    Chuck Davis,

    Thank you for your input. The impact of mankind in heating and power production will always have a negative impact on the atmosphere. But consider the following:

    1. Look at the amount of energy per day our atmosphere endures because of our sun.
    2. Current electrical production technology (Carnot Cycle) is about 40% efficient. So 60% of the thermal production goes into the atmosphere. So, under you analysis, they have 60% going into the atmosphere, compared to 25% from eCat.
    3. Remote power production has transmission line loss so even more thermal energy is lost and therefore the initial production of plant energy is that much higher.
    4. Even solar energy can have an impact on more heating of the local atmosphere.

    Bottomline – there is no “free Lunch”. Energy production will have an effect, but perhaps not as significant as the greenhouse gas effect?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Nick:
    1- USA
    2- R&D on the production of electric energy directly from the plasma of the Ecat.

    Dear Andrea:
    1- where are you working in this moment?
    2- what is that you consider the most important thing you are making now?

  • Chuck Davis

    @Steven N. Karels,
    Steve, based upon your hypothetical 50% efficiency, assume that over a large number of houses configured in this manner, we can estimate an average of 25% of thermal energy would be dissipated into an already overheated atmosphere.
    Warm Regards,
    Chuck Davis

    Norma:
    Maybe, partially, yes, in the sense that it makes operations otherwise should be done by humans, even by means of logic procedures: it has also to make choices in some situations.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Do you think that the remote control of the Ecat SK by which you control from your headquarters the Ecats operating even oversees can be considered A.I. ?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    When my Chevy Volt battery pack drops below 80% storage, it is considered end-of-life and will be replaced. But it still would be useful for non-automotive applications.

    Assume an eCat-SK electric with a thermal capacity of 100kW which runs at 50% efficiency for conversion to electricity. Assume approximately 1kW constant power consumption for the Controller and system control.

    A home will require not more that 200Amps at 220VAC or 44kW of electrical power (200Amp rated electrical panels). So the 100kW eCat-SK electric will provide sufficient power to run one home.

    Assume two such old battery packs, one being charged by the eCat-SK electric and the other powering the Controller and system control. The eCat-SK electric would switch every few hours between charging one battery pack, to using the stored power to run the Controller and system electronics, and charging the other battery pack.

    Plus the excess heat (50kW) could be used to heat the house, heat water, or just exhausted.

    The control of the eCat-SK electric is therefore, totally independent of the eCat-SK electric output. This might find application in remote locations (e.g., cabin in the woods?) As the battery technology becomes cheaper, this architecture could become more wide spread. Thoughts?

    ……….. and possibly you might also consider offering to put up one million euros ‘in escrow’ as your guarantee that your system will indeed replace their use of coal without producing any emissions, harmful or otherwise.

    With ‘seriously challenging’ regards,

    Thank you for this serious proposal, but the issue in it is that the inventor has to explain in detail his invention and in primis the sum is ridiculous (in our case), in secundis to win the prize you have to explain BEFORE the details of the IP to the jury.
    The idea of the mayor is intelligent, though, and surely will attract smart proposals from many inventors.

    Hi Andrea:

    I suggest you contact them and explain that you would be very happy to replace their coal fired heating with a non-polluting source at a price 25% less than their current coal costs. But that the video demonstrations you have already made would have to suffice for documentation, as you are, of course, not willing to share your IP.

    In addition, you might suggest to them that, in the event you were selected as the winner, you would donate the prize money to the charity of their choice.

    The worst they can do is just say one word: “No.” A little better, they might even say: “No, but thank you.”

    Alternatively, they might possibly say “Yes” after reviewing your video documentation with experts in the field.

    Should you win, even the news media would finally have to start taking a serious interest in your work.

    Rodney.

    Roth:
    Well, I think that part of the control system could be defined A.I., but a full application of A.I. will have to be developed and I already am in contact with a Swedish engineer to develop this part of R&D. For sure this is an issue we are following with great attention.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Roth

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Have you already applied A.I. to the Ecat?

  • Jean Paul Renoir

    Dear Andrea,
    the video
    http://www.ecatskdemo.com
    and your paper published on
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    give evidence of a remarkable progres you made to reconcile the Rossi effect with a theoretical explication of it; nonetheless, you still are browsing around different directions: when do you think you will propose a final theory about the physical theoretical ground of the Ecat?

  • Dear Andrea,
    The following is in Finnish news today:

    The Major of the City of Helsinki promises a million euros to the person who invents how to replace coal in district heating of the City of Helsinki:

    The fact that nuclear reactions like Au197 + N14 -> Au198 + N13 happen at energies by which the colliding nuclea do not come in contact has been strangely ignored.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I watched

    John Cahill:
    I do not know how the readings are counted, but I suppose that the website of Researchgate ( the most important website of the world in its cathegory ) has an automatic control system that makes the counts. The authors obviously do not have access to the counting system, we can only read the results.

    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    that your publication reached almost 16500 readings, which is a stellar achievemrnt. Who counts the readings?

    Soli:
    The spectrometer measures the wavelength of the radiations. My spectrometer measures a spectrum between 100 and 1100 nm, with a definition of 0.1 nm, therefore it is much wider than the spectrum of the colors, that is between about 380 (violet) and 740 (red) nm
    The methodology I use has been taught to me from a PhD Chemical Engineer that is our consultant specifically for this matter and uses this system to measure the high temperatures at the nozzles of the rockets.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Sam Oliverio

    Dear Dr Rossi:
    In
    http://www.ecatskdemo.com
    I saw that you use a spectrometer to eventually use the Wien equation and the Boltzmann equation to measure the energy radiated from the Ecat SK. But the plasma, or at least the core of it where you measure the radiation, is a black body, while the spectrometer measures the colors.
    Answer?
