    We always make calorimetric tasts of the Ecats, as, for example, you can see on
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    I read Your answer to the question “How do You test SKL?”.

    Nevertheless, I would ask You as follows: Did You perform a calorimetric test of SKL, e.g. by heating water using a resistance wire connected to SKL?

    With Best Regards

    Dear Andrea,

    a quick update about our quest:

    Partecipants are now more than 50!

    Moving to a more technical subject, I applied Stefan Boltzmann equation to a 85mm cube at a temperature of 328°K (55°C) and I got an emitted heat power of aroud 25 Watts.

    This leads, assuming a 80% efficiency, to an electrical E-Cat SKL power output of about 100 Watts.

    I understand you cannot answer in positive or negative but I would like to hear comments of the Readers on that.

    My best wishes to overcome all current issues and arrive soon to the product presentation.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    For the Client/Partner evaluations of the eCat SKL that are underway:

    1. What is the duration of such evaluations?
    2. When do you expect completion of at least preliminary results?
    3. Will the results be made available to the public?

  • Svein H. Vormedal

    To withhold an advance.
    Imagine if eCat SKL today had been a source of energy in full common use around the world and worked as Andrea expects.
    It would then be completely inconceivable to suggest that the world should refrain from using it to promote a more expensive and highly polluting technology because it could create more jobs.
    If SKL comes on the market, non of the world’s oil and gas-consuming machinery will transform itself into eCats. If energy can be supplied at low prices, this could create far more jobs than what high energy prices do. The transition, in itself, will give work to many.
    Regards: Svein H. Vormedal

    Thank you for your suggestions,

  • Delaying introduction of a new invention may sound like a nice idea but is fraught with danger for the very people who came up with the invention in the first place. It makes no sense to let your competitors catch up with you and, if they are just a little more efficient than you are (very low wage costs in China, as just one example), quickly put you out of business.

    It is essential to recoup all your research and development expenditures as quickly as possible, and use the cash flow resulting from early sales to finance expansion to satisfy demand, before your competitors do.

    I would strongly advise against slowing down introduction. It might be different if it was possible to expect that everyone would respect patent rights.

    But all that a patent gives the inventor is the right to sue those who violate it.

    And all a court judgment against those infringing your patent gives you, is the right to try to collect the judgement award. Try doing that with China.

    I have never heard it suggested in the case of any other invention that its introduction should be delayed. Every new, better invention makes it inconvenient for those producing the obselete products. No one ever suggested, for example, that digital photography introduction be slowed because people at Kodak would lose their jobs.

    Thank you for your insight.
    We are not ready yet for a scheduling and modality of the roll out.
    Warm Regards,

  • Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Would you agree with the statement:

    1. The eCat SKL is not ready for massive production.
    2. The eCat SKL is ready for partner/client company evaluations.
    3. Such evaluations are currently underway.

  • Michael S.

    Dear Andrea,

    The ecat domestic unit with combined electric and heat production will be able to heat and cool houses, propulse cars & the industrial units will take care of industrial energy needs. All this with marginal CO2 production and kw/h cost.

    As the public acknowledgement and
    Market introduction of ecat approaches may I ask if you have considered with your partners a structurally phased roll out ?

    As you well know there are many countries that are very dependant on oil & gas revenues. The sudden break in income and bookvalue of their holdings will mean a major economic recession for these countries. Populations will risk mass unemployment, maybe famine and increased risk of radical behaviors and (civil) wars. This could even be the case in the US states where shalegas has become the main economy.

    In order to avoid the sudden breakdown of these energy production dependant economies maybe you and your team should sit down with independent economists and governement officials of non-energyproduction dependant countries and with a sens of globale responsability such as for instance Sweden, Germany and France, EU?, to discuss a official transition plan between ecat energy and legacy energy. This could be a ten year plan starting with the most polluting/CO2 producing/evident industrial applications (coal?) and gaz/oil electric production and then gradually switching to household cars maybe (eventhough ridding Cities of car fumes is certainly highly deriable rather short term).

    I dont know the order & timeframe but I am quite sure there is a sensible way to do this in a structured/planned & transparent way which would allow the Hydrocarbon producing countries/states to be able to organize a ordely transition of their economy. To turn around a Supertanker needs time and better have precise (time)map in order to be able to plan amortizations and investments – and you will need help. A planned transition instead of a revolution letting the marketforces apply blindly and ruthlessly could avoid a lot of pain to millions of people.

    Bonne suite in this challenging next chapter & kind Electric regards,

    Michael S.

    Albeit the use of a cristal ball makes dubious the fairness of your participation, because it is like to jump in a boxing rind with a gun, the love we have for our Readers overcomes the doubts and your data are accepted in the quest. Your data will be as well condidered to give you a chance to win, even platonically, the competition.
    Warm Regards,

  • Raffaele Bongo

    Hello A. Rossi
    On this day of the climb, I brought out my crystal ball to determine the characteristics of the SKL without participating in the competition because of my travel difficulties. I hope I can follow your brilliant demonstration on the web.
    The SKL deserves the golden ratio (1 + √5) / 2 = 1.618 033 988 749 894 … ..
    Electric power = (1 + √5) / 2 = 1.618 033 988 749 894… ..kW
    Electrical efficiency = ((1 + √5) / 2) * 50 = 80.901699437494…. %
    Cube edge = (1 + √5) / 2) / 20 = 0, 0809016994374942…. M
    Weight = (1 + √5) / 2) / 2 = 0, 809016994374942…. Kg

    With this original numbers, the E-Cat will work flawlessly, without limits and adapt to all situations.
    Good day for you, your family and your great team.
    Best regards

    Chuck Davis,
    I love discussions of things that might be good investments in a world transitioning to Rossi-effect devices, but betting on oil prices going lower might be a risky one.

    Right now oil is near the lowest price in decades. Oil is currently being pumped at a loss in some parts of the world. Demand is depressed because of the virus. Oil storage facilities are jam-packed. It’s possible (likely even) for oil production to drop faster than demand for oil drops– in which case the price of oil would increase. For historical example, the price of whale oil increased for many years after petroleum appeared on the scene (and while whale oil production plummeted).

    Whatever you do, be prepared for surprises. (I’m not pro or anti-oil, but I am anti-negative-surprises!)

    Dear Andrea, An ETF is an exchange traded fund, an investment method similar to stocks and DTO is a double inverse fund that pays double the percentage that oil falls. If oil drops 10% then DTO will go up 20%! I believe that when you make your presentation, the floor will fall out from under the oil market and DTO will be a great way to benefit from it. Think of it as a way to get back some of the money that the oil mafia has gouged us for in the past!

    Warm regards,

    @All the Readers,
    As soon as the SKL is certified, I recommend loading up on DTO, a double inverse oil ETF!

    Sven B:
    1. the Stefan-Boltzmann law is given by the formula
    Q = Sigma x T^4
    and we used it to calculate the thermal energy generated by the former generations of the Ecat.
    See par. 5 on
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    The SKL generates mainly electric energy and we measure the electricity generated by the SKL using the Ohm’s equations.
    We still can use the Stefan-Boltzmann equation to measure the residual thermal energy, presently condidered a by product.
    2. the emissivity factor depends on the material of the surface.
    3. 40-60 °C
    4. yes

    Dear Mr. Rossi
    I first want to thank you for your steadfast determination where others would have given up. My question is, are any of your clients exploring the use of the e-cat for maritime uses or remote electoral generation. Thank you for hard work and putting up with all of us.

  • Sven B

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I expect some readers of this blog are using the famous Stefan-Boltzmann law
    to calculate a guess for the total power generated by E-Cat SKL.

    1. Do you think they take a reasonable approach?

    2. If YES, would you say that the blue cube can be regarded as an almost black body with an
    emission constant of around 0.9?

    3. You have recently confirmed that the surface of SKL is ‘lukewarm’ at maximum.
    Would this mean less than 40.5 degrees Celsius?
    https://mrlilholt.wordpress.com/food-science/what-temperature-is-lukewarm/

    Today we experience a first real change from the unusually cold spring we had in Sweden for many weeks and according to weather forecasts, the change is not only temporary.
    Quite soon we are also promised details of possible positive changes in our corona restrictions.

    4. Is a presentation in Stockholm, when restrictions would allow it, still hot in your plans?

    Kind regards

    http://www.mit.gov.it/comunicazione/news/sostenibilita-fino-500-euro-per-buono-mobilita
    Questo per diminuire lo smog e anche per limitare le persone nei mezzi pubblici (covid).
    Pensi che si potrà usare la tecnologia SKL nella micromobilità in futuro?
    Grazie e buon lavoro.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    during a period of 6 months after the introduction of the SKL, your marketing goal (Your desired condition) will be:

    A) Minimum number of industrial customers (1 to 5)?
    B) Medium number of industrial customers (6 to 20)?
    C) Maximum possible number of industrial customers, even if it would mean longer delivery waiting times (bigger backlog)?

  • Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    When new technological devices appeared in human history, in the beginning they were never perfect.
    Some examples, the steam engine was dangerous, the boiler exploded.
    The Ford Mod.T car started with the crank and many people were injured. It also often failed and broken.
    The Wright brothers’ plane flew, but it was extremely dangerous, unstable, difficult to govern and prone to fall easily.
    Beyond these examples there would be a very long list of inventions which, born raw, were subsequently improved and became elements of development of human civilization.
    From the prototype phase to the industrial product phase thanks not to the inventor, but to subsequent developments by users.

    All these devices have some things in common:
    – contain a “divine spark”, an absolutely new and revolutionary fundamental idea.
    – were placed on the market even if they were not perfect,
    – have been subsequently developed and perfected by countless industries over time, with the contribution of continuous improvements to increase reliability, performance and operational safety.

    If the original inventors had instead decided to keep them secret in their laboratories to perfect them before putting them on the market, today we would not have had the current technological development, since there would have been a very strong delay.
    Human history would have been very different, poorer and more primitive.

    The E-Cat SK invented by Andrea Rossi has unique and extraordinary characteristics:
    – Electric power consumption 380 watts
    – Thermal output power of about 22 kW
    – The system has a COP of around 58, but the COP of the reactor alone is incredibly higher.

    From 19 November 2018 the E-Cat SK has been installed experimentally on a user’s system.
    As Dr. Rossi said, it has since worked with fairly good reliability and customer satisfaction.
    There have been some occasional (unspecified) malfunctions that prevent its constant use and which require occasional restoration interventions.
    Since then 18 months have passed but there has been no other significant news.

    My thought is that if the E-Cat SK had already been on the market a year and a half ago, today it would have already been perfected by countless industries, engineers and technicians for:
    – eliminate or reduce residual defects,
    – create countless real applications on a large amount of uses.
    – and with the experience gained from these improvements, the development of the E-Cat SKL would also have been much faster.
    – and Dr. Rossi would have already had the just and due world honors and recognitions. He would have been rightly recognized as the Father of the “Rossi Effect”, worthy of maximum Prizes.

    My simple question then is:

    Why is the E-Cat SK still secret?

    Sincerely,
    Italo R.

    About your paper
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    I noticed that the speed of light related to the zitterbewegung of the electrons had been anticipated in the Nobel lecture of Paul Dirac: “Theory of electrons and positrons”.

    Dear Andrea,
    I don’t know if it is too late, but only now I have finished my very elaborate calculations :-) and I would like to add my guess on SKL.
    Then my conclusion is that the rule of nine must be applied.
    My data are
    Dimensions: 9x9x9 cm.
    Total power produced: 9 kW.
    DC output: 90% of total power
    Weight: 900 grams.
