    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Some people might hesitate to replace their complete heating system by an entirely new technology. On the other hand, many of them use electric radiators as auxiliary heat sources if appropriate (I have one in my basement which I use in winter, for example). So maybe an E-Cat powered radiator would be a good idea. A device that resembles something that people already know might be easier to market, and if it worked as expected it would lower the reservations about a more comprehensive investment.

    Best regards,
    Andreas Moraitis

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    For a man with so much responsibility and ongoing projects, you seem to have a lot of time to spend answering questions on the Internet. May I ask how you manage to do that?

  • Cathleen

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    A question that has nothing to do with Science: I saw the interview you gave to Vessela Nikolova while you were in your car, going to work: which car was that?
    Just curiosity, maybe stupid.
    Thanks if you answer, I don’t think this is under NDA.
    Cheers,
    Cathleen

    Dear Dr. Rossi

    The anticipation is electric!
    We vibrate with excitement.
    Soon all will change…
    with E-Cat X!

    I’m picturing a crowd chanting this loudly with a staccato E-Cat-X!.

    Long time listener, first time caller. Thank you for all you do.

    Would you consider a manufacturing facility in Canada? Our dollar is heavily discounted and we have many areas in the West which offer excellent opportunities for affordable land and construction. Certainly you will handle your own power fairly quickly. As a producer of power you will find our public utility has a good program for purchasing power from industrial power suppliers. With a robust distribution system to the North American grid, British Columbia is ideally suited for your facility. Kindly contact me at the supplied email address if you would like to receive a package detailing presently available locations which may suit your purpose.

    Dear Mr Rossi,

    it seems that great things are going to happen. For your dreams to become true you will need a lot of money. Do you plan to go public with your company? I am sure your company will have the potential to become the Google/Aple/Microsoft combined in the energy sector.

  • eernie1

    Dear Robert,
    To efficiently transport electric power over long distances, it must be in the form of thousands of volts of alternating current(AC). You probably have seen power lines that have been broken in storms, drastically sparking and in some cases, if coming in contact with humans or property, can cause deaths or fires. To preserve the efficiency of transportation the voltage is only reduced to 110 or 220V when delivered to the user. however this high a level still can cause deaths or fires when it contacts objects. DC power however is typically used at 10s of volts and is much safer when contacted. Batteries are a good example of a source of DC power and as you know are much safer than the typical electrical outlets found in facilities.IMHO this would be taken in consideration when a certification for use is required for distribution of a device.

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Your answer to S. is interesting. If other companies are able to develop products around your core technology, it would help to speed up the diffusion of E-Cat products. Does this signal an openness by Leonardo Corp. to licensing the E-Cat?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  • Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    I am very pleased to read that you are considering (according the answer you gave to S) supplying Ecats also as a sub part for an apparatus that suppliers may want to make.
    This opens a huge market! Just imagen: supplying these to General Electric/Rolls Royce for their turbo fans, or BMW for the supply of their car motors! You can think of millions of applications!
    Just some questions about this, assuming F9.
    1. Do you believe it will be possible to make the Ecat (or more than one) in any demanded shape in the future? (E.g. Ball-, flat-, cube-, cylindrical with a hole in it- shaped?)
    2. Is there a difference regarding the shape flexibility between Ecat and Ecat X?
    3. Would you think there is any power limit in any direction. In other words: Can Ecats be build from e.g. 1 micro watt to a 1 Tera watt in the future?
    4. If the world switches to Ecats, do you think there any limit in the supply of materials/fuel for the coming 1 thousand years for making/using the Ecat?

    Thanks and kind regards,
    Gerard McEk

    Dr. Rossi, I do not understand the Post of Eernie1 J.9 at 12:50P
    I understand your response even less.

    Eernie1 said, the E-Cat produces DC power.
    He said this is good because it will eliminate accidental electrocutions.
    The same thing Edison said !
    Also it will be easier to get Certification, for DC power.
    My knowledge of electricity is limed to, you put the plug in the wall and the Device works.
    Is he saying you provide DC power to the home to provide electricity for the Home, and you are saying, You got a point.
    Will a Home run on DC power ?

  • Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, if you can give us some infoprmations:

    1)- is the jet engine you are working on powered by fans moved by electric motor supplied by E-Cat-X?
    2)- or are those fans moved by hot air like aeronautical jet engines?

    Best Regards,
    Italo R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    S.:
    Good question.
    I thnk Leonardo Corporation will consider also the possibility you have indicated.

  • S.

    Dear Andrea,
    Your strategy will be only to produce E-Cats as final products, ready to go on the shelves, or also to produce E-Cats conceived as modules for heat generation destined to be used from other manufacturers to make any other product independently from you?
    Thank you for your patience,
    S.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    About the E-Cat X and its application to a jet engine: are you working on it in collaboration woth that engineer connected with an aerospace industy you mentioned recently?

    Dear Andrea,

    Understandably, a portion of the heat may be drawn off when you turn on the electricity output, but it is possible that the electrical power is in fact an addition to the overall output of the system. So my question is this…

    Is it true or false that the E-Cat X (HEAT Kw + ELECTRICITY Kw) > E-Cat X (HEAT Kw)?

    Godspeed and thank you,

    Tom

  • Arnulf

    Dear Andrea Rossi:
    You are thrilling the historic moment we are living . Thank you and again congratulations for the dream you shared with us at midnight of the First of the New Year: I believe you will turn it into reality.

    Dear Andrea,

    Eernie1 does indeed have a good point about DC vs A/C for home use.

    Can we have an update on the Jet engine research please?
    This video has a guy using an electric jet engine to go surfing with on youtube.

  • eernie1

    Dear Andrea,
    Because your device produces DC power and can be located near the point of use, the reason for mainly using high voltage AC power(efficiency of transport through long distances) is no longer valid. Edison wanted to provide DC power because of two reasons. It could be provided and used in the form of relatively low voltage thus eliminating accidental electrocutions and the cost of insulation of cables and connections was much lower. However the cost of providing power to the end user because of losses, made DC power not the preferred form of use. One other advantage of DC is the decrease in the number of electric fires in facilities that result in fatalities and large replacement costs of destroyed assets.
    Since there are positive safety factors involved in the use of DC, this should encourage faster certification of your device if only as an electric power provider.
    Safety regards.

    Koen Vandewalle:
    Thank you for your insight.
    The E-Cat X is still a prototype subject to R&D before aquiring the status of product.
    When a product is ready, it goes to the market independently from what is on course in the R&D section.

    This is exactly the issue our theoretical research is focused upon. The answers will be given after I will have a mathematical rigorous model.

  • Giuliano Bettini

    Dear Andrea,
    from the electronic engineering point of view the electric E-Cat X is an amazing machine.
    A million dollar question, if you can. If in a nuclear device it is relatively easy to interpret the energy production (ie: with the disappearance of mass), the production of electrical energy to which kind of phenomenon can be attributed?
    Just as an example, in the E-Cat X. :)
    I mean: loosely speaking, e. m. fields? particle production? inexplicable phenomena? what?
    Electric regards,
    Giuliano Bettini.

  • Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Andrea,

    Can you tell if your current version of E-Cat-X is more a proof-of-concept version, or a final and optimized version ?

    I Explain: E-Cat-X was created after a “vision”. One way to produce a prototype, is that you start from a working device, and modify this existing device into something new. Just as the first cars looked like carriages without horses.

    Now if you want to produce electricity directly with the E-Cat-X, it seems probable that you need a completely different construction than the E-Cat which works via a heat exchanger.

    In that case, it seems likely to me that there are new “visions” coming to use the Rossi-effect optimal.

    A potentially annoying side effect is that every revolutionary improvement, outclassed the previous versions. This creates the problem that products never reach the market. This is the phenomenon why many people from my parents’ generation never finally stepped into the digital world: the computer that is in the shop, will be obsolete next year, so we’ll wait. They keep waiting.

    For investors, this is also important. I wonder if Apple would ever have sold one I-device if they had announced the schedule for releases 2 to 6.

    With your patent, you have an exclusive right to the core operation of the Rossi-effect.

    This means that all visionary improvements need to go exclusively by the bottleneck of a single development team.

    Parallel teams or branches are unprofitable because of the visionary character of a single team. It would be silly to design Carnot machines with generators with the Rossi-effect as a power source, if we know E-Cat-X is in development and may produce profitable electricity.

    This state of affairs should not be seen as competition but is a choking or crippling interaction of different ideas that hinder each other’s breakthrough.

    In this way, businessmen want to invest when the visions of the inventors have stopped. Or when it is at least clear how much return there can be from a certain generation of products.
    Finished products have market value. This is so for the majority of what is out there.

    Van Gogh never sold his paintings for millions. Jesus, as a man, has never known Christianity. They were however in their lives no less ingenious than afterwards.

    Of all the new and important products that are actually on the market, there is one marketing-aspect that takes precedence over everything: the release date.

    Given the importance of the E-Cat technology, I am worried that there was never announced a release date. I fear that it still could take a very long time before this technology will be able to take its rightful place in the market.

    I hope you will forgive me this critical remark. The ideal man is still not getting off the drawing board. Meanwhile, there are already around seven billion who need energy.

    Around the E-Cat is a lot of complexity and risk. Also risks which are still impossible to estimate. I have the impression that this is an obstacle that must be overcome. I’m not sure that capitalism and known business models will bring down that obstacle.

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

    Dear Andrea Rossi

    I belated but Happy New Year to you.

    I post the following to inform others more than your self and staff, who I think is more than aware of such things.

    For the record, one way competitors gain confidential information is by the process of goading. So a competitor, and this includes those calling for open source. Interestingly competitors in a market will often fund and support open source, and arrange for those in their employ to take positions of influence in an open source community to steer it to their own ends.

    Competitors will seek to gain information via:
    1) Saying the product is a scam.
    2) Or they may say that the confidential information has to be released for the public good so that all can benefit.
    3) Or they may use the trick of saying the patent protection is slowing things down.

    Or a plethora of other goads, you can tell it is a goad by how harsh it is.

    Competitors can do this through:
    a) Their own actions
    b) Paid intermediaries
    c) Winding up an influenced intermediary
    d) Journalists who are fed a story
    e) Discontented former partners or employees.

    The above is just a sample of the shenanigans we have all seen used in the past few years.

    I am sure both yourself and your Great Team are aware of all these intricacies and more.

    I trust you and all the other involved in this endeavour are doing the best they can; and that we will get there or not F9, when we do and not before. Sometimes the interminable queries of “Are we there yet?” from the children in back is quite amusing.

    That said, remember your Pareto principle, that it will never be perfect, and that it does not always need to be so, you work toward perfection, but sometimes you are just polishing and not really working; in the end the work is done when you say it is.

    Kind Regards Ian Walker
