    Dear Rossi,

    I fully buy your concept that when the trial is over the COP figures needs to be checked and the double checked and then re-checked again before any information is released into the public.

    However, I don’t think the customers can care less. “He” will just go in to his accountant and ask.. “how much did we pay in 2014 and how much did we pay in 2015 for our power ????”.. the account needs like 5 min do give him a firm number. Even with the falling oil prices LENR should be competitive.

    Makes sense ??

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    It is out of question that the interpretation of Feynman of the QED and the QD can sustain your theoretical hypothesys. Will be crucial the data concerning the radiations and the mathematical structure: I totally agree with you.

    Dear Mr Rossi,

    You said the Customer may lease or buy the plant If successful test.

    1. Have such commercial discussions allready started, since there are short time left of testperiod?

    2. Will you need a period after end of test to analyse the testperiod, to conclude on final Success?

    It is a courtesy of NASA, from the collection of the impressive photos of the Universe taken from the space. I followed the suggestion of a Reader, who emailed to me that the former cover, showing the part of emisphere of the Earth where Europe is, could offend the Readers of the other parts of the world: to offend nobody I asked the special website Team to put galaxies instead. This photo has been chosen being the biggest known “fusion” (albeit not quite cold): a fusion between two galaxies. I am glad you liked it.

    Mr. Rossi

    I hope that you are well.

    Is there any chance you could show us a picture of the E-Cat X?

    Thanks

  • Dmitry Sutyagin

    Hello Sir Andrea,

    I have been following the development of multiple new energy systems for several years. Your system looks like one of the most promising and ready at the same time. I am a true fan of clean energy, an ex Greenpeace employee, and I ride an electric scooter. One of my dreams is to have everyone use exhaust-free transport. I also dream of building a flying house. Both dreams seem to be possible with the use of your work. I am very interested in the possibility of integration of E-Cat X in an electric vehicle. I have several questions:
    1. What is the maximum electricity to heat ratio that a E-cat X module scaled to ~15KW can produce currently?
    2. What will be the electrical COP with such ratio?
    3. Is output electricity close to standard DC or AC in a usable Voltage range, is it an amplified copy of the electrical input, or is chaotic and requires a use of a filtering / rectification circuitry?
    4. Can variable load be applied directly to the output electricity circuit (if any) or this electricity can only be collected with a constant or very specific variable resistance to keep E-Cat X stable?
    5. Will you be interested in a prototype of an E-Cat X powered 10-15KW electric scooter? If so, how could I contact you further regarding this topic?

    Many thanks to you and Norman Cook for sharing the presentation and also for your considered response to Pekka Janhunen’s very interesting question. I think what ever the result is the results of your current test looks to be becoming more and more interesting.

    I have a few small questions regarding the possibility to experimentally evaluate these ideas, if I may.

    1. Are you already able to probe the internal environment of your e-cats to detect and record the low level energy gamma spectrum?
    2. If so would this be able to give you sufficient frequency resolution and other information to evaluate this theory?
    3. If not would it be possible to develop a device that includes a probe of this kind of gamma spectrum information from the wafer with out disrupting to much the process. Or would the heat and environment prohibit this.
    4. Could a e-cat or e-cat X device allow small well characterised samples to be easily included and extracted from the wafer so that samples with different materials, and specific elements and isotopes as well as with materials with different nano structures or surface configurations?
    5. If not could such a device be developed, or would such an addition disrupt the process to the extent that it would not provide useful information.

    All the best for your continued success.
    Stephen

    Crystal:
    Thank you for your attention. The paper we are working upon will be published only if with the experimental data and an advanced mathematical structure we will be able to make a theoretical model that can reconciliate all the experimental data. Until we will be able to do that, observations like the one in the comment of Pekka Janhunen, a very serious person, will have to be considered correct. This is a dialectic dynamic between actuality and potentiality.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Crystal

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I really appreciated the response of you and Prof. Cook to the serious comment of Pekka Janhunen regarding the publication of Norman Cook on Ecatworld.
    The paper you and Prof. Cook are writing will be very important, I understand.

  • Lande

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    Since the test period is soon over….

    1. Have the Customer indicated a wish to extend the lease if test is a success (or buy the plant) ?

    2. If not extended lease, what is your further plans for the test plant?

    3. Have you identified changes in the design that will be implemented when / if you start manufacturing on a broad scale…?

  • Dear Dr Rossi
    Does the new X-Cat still need hydrogen to function and if so can we produce small volumes via electroysis using the energy from the Xcat to keep the system running indefinitly. The hydrogen could be stored in metal hydrides

  • Martyn Aubrey

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    You seem to have many new readers commenting over recent months, which hopefully indicates that your story is becoming more widely known.

    Can you tell us all if your IT guys have noticed a rise in visits to the site?

    Wishing you Andrea, your excellent team and the many readers of the JoNP a very Happy and Successful 2016 and beyond.

    All the Best,
    Martyn Aubrey

  • Peter Forsberg

    Dear Andrea,

    Do I understand what you just said to Pekka Janhunen correctly? Did you just say that the ECat perhaps violates the first law of thermodynamics?

    Best Regards

  • Pietro F.

    Buongiorno,
    é sempre prevista la costruzione di uno stabilimento industriale per la produzione di reattori per l’ecat da 1 MW a Cary?
    L”ecat x sarà prodotto per nello stesso stabilimento?
    ENGLISH
    Good morning, is it always planned to build a factory for the production of reactors for the ECAT 1MW in Cary ? Will the “ECAT X be produced in the same factory?

    Grazie e buon lavoro

  • Andrea Rossi

    Pekka Janhunen:
    This answers to your comment arrived today at 2.51 a.m.
    Sorry for the late, but I wanted to discuss with Prof. Cook the answer and he is in Japan, so we had a fuse to wait for.
    Your argument is possibly right and it respects the common sense of classical physics.
    This is why we ( Prof. Norman Cook and me) have to sustain our theory on the base of the data of the experiments and a rigorous system of advanced mathematical models.
    Before we reach that level, you maybe correct and we wrong. Nevertheless, the quantum mechanical view of Feynman opens different perspectives. Feynman argument with regard to atomic (electron) physics is that all virtual states have a brief reality because of the uncertainty principle. Classically, all the excited states should not be real unless the necessary excitation energy is received from somewhere. Especially for nucleons, excitation energies of several MeV should be too high to allow the excited states to occur. But Feynman and the other developers of the QED have shown that “impossibly high energy ” excited states for electrons need to be included in the calculation of the probabilities of atomic states. The more virtual states that are included, the more accurate is the model result ( and that is why the QED is so accurate, but so hard to understand).
    Classically, that is crazy and in his books Feynman has made a point of saying that their QED results “erode common sense” (e.g. p. 119, QED: The strange theory of light and matter, 1985).
    That is to say, although the common sense conservation of energy tells us that the higher energy excited states should not affect the lower energy electron ( or nucleon) transitions, the quantum mechanical view that Feynman defends is that all of the virtual states are briefly “real” within the time constraints of the uncertainty principle.
    Generally, that means for nucleons that many higher energy states do exist simultaneously for a few femtoseconds ( lower energy nuclear excited states can exist for picoseconds or nanoseconds or even for milliseconds, but the principle is the same).
    Is Feynman correct to say that “nobody understands QM” (p.9)? Maybe not, but if the uncertainty principle can be used in that way, then brief violation of the conservation of energy is possible. The “expanded Mossbauer Effect” Prof. Norman Cook and I are working upon and is the base of the theory we are trying to complete, starts from the idea that, during the brief reality of the nuclear excited states, high energy gamma resonance can occur and can make the virtual state become real leading to real de-excitation.
    That might be said to be the occurrence of the violation of the conservation of energy via “virtual state excitation”.
    The inevitable prediction from the “expanded Mossbauer” hypothesys is that, during de-excitation, real gamma rays will be emitted from excited nuclear states and those rel gamma rays should match the gamma ray energies that are known from the conventional nuclear physics experiments.
    Low energy gamma ray datafrom inside the E-Cat should, therefore, tell us if the hypothesys is right or wrong.
    We need to go through a process of measurements and formulation of a mathematical structure that allows the integration of the effect in the principles of the QED and the QM.
    This having been said, we ( Prof. Norman Cook and me) are conscious of the fact that you could be right ( or, if you prefer, that you “probably” are right).
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Øystein Lande

    Dear mr. Rossi,

    Do you have fixed Weekly or monthly meetings with the customer and referee, or only when required for discussions?

    Have your own measurements of power and COP been in agreement with the Customers and the referee’s so far?

  • Svein Henrik

    Dear Pekka, Mats and Andrea.
    Andrea, thank You. You show yourselves like a true gentleman.
    The E-cat-x technology may be a life saver for the el-car industry since before or later will even European politicians understand that changing the energy source of a car from a petrol tank on the road to å coal powerplant besides the road is not a big achievement. When changing from a energy source to another, of environmental reasons, the environmental pollution is to be monitored on a marginal basis.
    The dynamic lows for cars, trucks and buses are the same. Thereof will all road traffic be of interest for E-Cat-X technology. The benefits of selleing energy to the grid when not in traffic will be different but still of interest.
    Best regards, Svein Henrik.

    Dear Mr Rossi,

    what would be the weight and the volume (perhaps liters) of a 20 kw e-cat x reactor?

    Thank you.

  • orsobubu

    Andrea, I like the new revamped site http://ecat.com/ very much!

    Some personal notes just to push your endurance to the limits…

    1- Just my 2-cent opinion about the image of Earth on landing page: it is nice and colourful and I know you like it, but I think it is too much unrealistic; the obviously exaggerated heights of mountains, united to the unreal colorization, transmit a sense of fakeness distracting me from the authoritativeness I’m expecting from the serious and scientifical content of the site: it would be ok for a site on comics, movies or, at least, geographical maps. What about some image of the planet taken from the space station??

    2- It would be important if you set up a method to alert readers when new content is added to pages; it can be done easily with automated newsletters: usually a message is automatically sent to subscribers whenever new or modified content is added to a page, very useful

    3- (this is for JONP site) Since people today usually have 1600 pixel wide screens, you could update the header image in JONP to that size, to fit it from left to right border

    Gunnar:
    Thank you for this very interesting information related to an important achievement of the Swedish engineering in the field of the sustainable energy sources.
    Warm Regards,

  • Gunnar

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    In Sweden has been started the installation of the world biggest electric power generator that uses waves energy to produce electricity. It is being installed in the western coast of Sweden; manufactured by Seabased AB and operated by Sotenas Wave Energy, it works my means of the pull-push force made by the up-down movement of the waves, such force being exploited by means of a buoys system.
    I think this can be of interest for the readers of this blog.

    Guy:
    Thank you for your attention: complete and light is an oxymoron. We wanted to make a website that is able to make a complete presentation of the E-Cat, with an exhaustive description of our origins, of our present and of our strategy for the future; it was necessary to enrich it with photographies, drawings and give a complete information, within the limits of the field of non confidential information. All this would have not been possible by means of a “lighter” website. I understand that it is heavy for them who have not a fast connection, but I think that with patience also they will be able to have the proper information, better than a fast incomplete information.
    Good is better than fast.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Guy

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    The new website http://www.ecat.com is very well done, but it is very heavy and it has taken several hours to me to read all of it. Isn’t it possible to make a lighter version?
