  • Dear Andrea
    A) Can you tell us how many plants are already operating with your customers?
    B) Can you tell us your personal degree of satisfaction with the current operation of the plants with a value from 1 to 10?
    C) Have any of your customers shown any degree of satisfaction with the choice to have accepted to test your plants in their companies? Also here you can give us a numerical index
    (for 1-: -10) of the level of appreciation perceived?
    I apologize for my bad English: mine is mediocre and google translate does what it can
    to improve it.
    Warm Regards,
    Gian

    Dear Andrea,

    First of all I want to congratulate you & your team concerning the latest achievements concerning the e-cat developments/improvements.

    Just a few weeks ago, after the successfull demo of the commercial e-cat SK, what would have looked like something belonging to science fiction (an electric e-cat), now sounds like something relatively likely to become a reality.
    I know that (F9) “The results of the test can be positive or negative” most certainly still applies again here but reading your comment “We celebrated it here with a substantial step forward toward the electric Ecat that generates also the electric power to fuel itself” leads me to believe that you witnessed another major milestone/improvement of the e-cat.

    You must understand that for all of us, that just saw the e-cat SK in video but couldn’t feel its real heat yet, even the e-cat SK still somehow relates to science fiction. With the latest electrical developments, you are two realities ahead of us Andrea 😉 .

    The kind of exiting working environment that you live in is probably the fuel that powers you & your team to achieve all of those successes. So please continue this amazing work you are doing, but also, as powerfull as this fuel may be and as much as you proved being able to control other kind of reactions, please also very carefully control the burning rate of this one…

    Now concerning the possible name of the electrical version of the e-cat, I’m just wondering, if you name it after one of the greatest inventor of the latest 5 centuries (Leonardo), 500 years from now, what kind of device will bear your name (Rossi) ? :)
    I bet on something related to teleportation, [faster than light (FTL) or time] travel…
    Who knows, only time will tell, perhaps we will be able to witness it ourselves if one those 3 “Rossi” devices becomes reality.

    Non-fictional regards :)

  • Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    you have written, “When we will be allowed to.”
    May I ask who doesn’t yet allow you to show your installations?
    Does it depend on yourself, your customers, your partner or…?
    I understand if you cannot reveal those details, because they obviously are connected with your secret commercial and technical projects.
    But it really is a pity, because such an immense invention would deserve to be shown publicly to the world immediately, even though it may still have some operating problems.
    The world needs desperately your installations immediately, applied in millions and millions of applications.
    It is such an immense revolution that it seems impossible that it is still hidden behind NDA.

    Sincerely,
    Italo R.

    When can we see a photo of installed E-cat-SKs? It would be an inspiration to your loyal followers to see multiple installed units without giving the location or name of the customer(s). Hardware trumps vaporware every time. A reply would be greatly appreciated.

    @Chuck Davis,
    Interesting technology. I knew that it was only a matter of time and a better battery than lithium would be invented.

    Since we are still talking of 10+ years for an ECat powered car, because of certifications, these batteries should be widespread for sure at that time.

    Regards,
    Marco.

  • Steven N. Karels

    Chuck Davis,

    I enjoyed your post, but paraphrasing Andrea Rossi, the solution will be an integrated one. The battery (or capacitor) should be large enough to handle peak loads and transients. The eCat may not be running all the time (e.g., during high ambient temperatures, during idle times or low speed times when the eCat would produce too much excess power, during parked times inside an enclosed volume — garage). True, the amount of battery space can be reduced. What I was previously attempting to show is that even an undersized eCat (22kW) could extend the range of an electric car so that the limiting factor would be the human need to stop and get out of the car.

    Yes, but high temperature is inside the system, not outside, and it is made to produce work, not to be dissipated somewhere.

    @Chuck Davis
    A mix of batteries and supercapacitors should be necessary.

    A lithium battery can’t be recharged too fast, so you can’t sustain the 400+KW of power of regenerative braking with a little 5-10kwh battery: in a such powerful braking, most of the energy would be wasted and MUST be wasted, otherwise the battery could explode.

    You can’t put a too big ECat with a small battery for the same reason: too much waste heat and battery overheating, you will have to underutilize the ECat for most of the time, because the battery should be recharged not too fast.

    A small lithium battery can’t provide enough peak power to accelerate, for the same reason: if you are at 50-60mph, you are providing already about 20KW and to accelerate you need an higher power for some time.

    Also abrupt change in current flow are bad for the life expectancy of the battery.

    A mix of a small battery and a small supercapacitor should be used: the supercapacitor provide the peak power for acceleration and for fully recover of regenerative braking acting as a buffer and slowly charging or discharging the small battery.

    Regards, Marco.

    I read the e-book “Ecat-the new fire” of Vessela Nikolova: do you confirm what is written in this book?

  • Marco

    @Chuck Davis
    Better are supercapacitors. They are less polluting to produce and recycle, are less inflammable and support way more recharge cycles and istantaneous power. The only disadvantage is the capacity, but if you do not want a car that should sustain indefinitely 100 or more mph, but only legal speeds, a 20-30Kw Ecat and a few KWh supercapacitor should suffice… Just for sprint and for peak power in regenerative braking: in an emergency braking, the power required to absorb by the battery is often too high and the efficiency in energy recovery is low. With supercapacitors this is not a problem.
    Electric regards,
    Marco.

  • Chuck Davis

    @Steven N. Karels,
    The large number of batteries in current EV design is to extend the range. With an Ecat on board most of those batteries can be tossed since the Ecat will be constantly recharging the remaining batteries, which would result in a major reduction of weight and price.

    If you succeed with the Ecat SK-Leonardo, the issue of electric cars charge is resolved.

  • Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    On electric cars – the newer cars have all electric ranges of up to about 200+ miles. If you could have a 22 kW output eCat and convert nearly all of the energy into electricity, that would be sufficient to run highway speeds, with rest stops for the driver and passengers, across the country. For example, my 2015 Chevy Volt has an 11kW battery and I get about 30 miles of range. So if I drove at 60 mph, a 22kW electric generator should keep up with the demand. My point being with the newer, longer range cars, a continually operating eCat, with high enough conversion efficiency, would extend the electric range significantly. And any thermal output would be minimized. If you can make the eCat-SK Leonardo work, this is a natural market. Who would not want a car that you only had to refuel once or twice per year and no carbon emissions?

    Dear Dr Rossi
    Maybe this article will interest you.

    Little-understood crystals called “strange metals” appear to dissipate energy at a maximum rate allowed by the laws of quantum mechanics. The effort to understand this fundamental speed limit and what electrons are doing inside the materials has turned up surprising connections to black holes, gravity and quantum information theory.

    Hello DR Rossi

    I like your suggestion of
    “ECat SK – Leonardo “
    It honours a great man
    and the Country of your birth.
    I have a feeling Sergio Focardi
    would like it also.

    Dear Andrea,
    Congratulations with your progress on the electric Ecat. If this Ecat is really able to power itself, the the name Ecat SK Leonardo is truly well chosen. Leonardo da Vinci, the formidable genius, who excelled in so many disciplines, which seems also the the case for the Ecat SK Leonardo.
    I am not sure if what you published today, also means that you now have strong evidence that the Ecat SK Leonardo indeed works. If so, how many days has it been in operation without taking power from any other source?
    Kind regards, Gerard

  • Rick 57

    Dear Andrea,

    Leonardo seems to me appropriate because it is also the name of your Company.

    If you are looking for an acronym, why not Ecat-LH where LH stays for Lion Heart, the origin of Leonardo name.

    Can you confirm the goal of an Ecat with no external power supply has been achieved ?

    Wishes of Heart,
    Riccardo

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Readers:
    Today, May 2 2019, is the 500th year after the passing of Leonardo da Vinci. We celebrated it here with a substantial step forward toward the electric Ecat that generates also the electric power to fuel itself. What about the name “Ecat SK-Leonardo” ?
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.
