    Dear Andrea, Once a portable EcatSKL is available it could provide power for a space heater through a DC to AC converter.

    Warm regards,

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    Climate Change is not the problem. I’ve been a vigilant observer of this planet for 82 1/2 years and what we have is GRAVITY CHANGE. In the past 10 or 15 years I’ve noticed that it’s much more difficult to get up out of a chair and to lift heavy objects. Dr Rossi, I would like for you to address this problem after you’ve completed the E-Cat project.
    Best Regards,
    Iggy

    Do you have a current count of the pre-orders for SKLed?

  • Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    Have you given a car manufacturer an SKL to test?

    Dear Mr Rossi,
    1. Is it a “loyal / reliable” car manufacturer (that has been following your progress for a long time) or is it the new one that has appeared and contacted you?
    2. Is there any truck manufacturer that has shown interest in SKL?
    Kind Regards

    @all I red all the comments of last year, at least – but no one claims to heat a house/flat with E-Cat SKLed 😀
    And more, one claimed the power connection per home is 44 KW: No, in Italy the standard connection is just 3 KW, in Germany 14,5KW.

    Dear Mr. Rossi,
    the impact of a working E-Cat SKL will have much more impact than many of the readers here believe.
    One m3 of freshwater made by desalination of sea water needs at least 1,5 kwh. If the power with the SKL is really as cheap as you write then even countries in deserts could live of their own agriculture.

    Yes, it is really the most important invention of all time. It will change all.
    Best regards

    @ Brice
    As you pointed out in your post on October 2, led lamps have a heat dissipation. Andrea Rossi had on September 17 commented on a post that COP was “moreless 8”. This came from a calculation that the light energy from the SKLed lamp is 32W where 32/4 = 8. The 32W is calculated from the 10,000 lm beamed SKLed light having photon flux density and photon energy when striking a target. This calculation then excluded any heat. As you very well pointed out there is a heat dissipation from leds which will reduce the number of lamps required to satisfy the condition of input 4W and output (32W light + xW heat). So, I think its an open question if SKLeds can be used for room heating.

  • Gerard McEk

    @ Brice

    Unfortunately we do not know how the SKLed makes its light. E.g. Mats Lewan assumes that an small e-cat SKL powers a 100 W LED that has an efficiency of 100 W/L. Others have assumed a similar arrangement but with a top level LED that produces 150 L/W. In such arrangement it is assumed that maybe 10 kW is generated with about 400 W input, Probably sufficient for not too large and well insulated houses.
    But other suggestions of the SKLed operation assume that UV light generated by the plasma of the Ecat is concentrated and directly converted into visible light using phosphors. In that case the powers will be a lot less and not sufficient for heating a house.
    Obviously would nobody lit/heat directly the house with 100 SKLed’s, but put them all together in a black box and converting the light in the box into heat.
    I hope that Andrea will give us more details of the SKLed’s operation during the presentation in December.

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    Has any auto maker shown an interest in the SKL?
    Best Rwgards,

  • Brice

    @ Gerard McEk

    In my opinion I don’t think one can heat ‘a home’ with 100 SKLeds, delivering 1800W only (maybe up to almost twice the amount of energy when only one electronic driver can drive 100 SKLeds). This is about the heat of a hair dryer or a small electric heating panel. This could be enough for just a smaller room or as a supplementary heater but not sufficient enough for a cold winter. The investment in 100 SKLeds is significant while the electricity consumption is low of of course. Shining 100 x 10,000 lumen in a room is not a good idea it will be too bright, it’s better to put them in a black box.

    The reasoning behind it is that under normal conditions finally all light will be converted into heat when it’s absorbed into matter. When photons reflect multiple times around in a room they will eventually be absorbed and converted into heat. There are exceptions where light behaves differently, like in the photo-electric effect which converts light into electricity (solar panels), (bio)chemical energy or even very exotic behaviour where light can be converted into matter. Things that normally don’t happen in our homes.

    I believe it makes no sense to convert SKLed-light with solar panels into electricity, which can be converted into heat (only +/- 25% efficacy, although they do radiate heat themselves).

    With kind regards,

    Brice

    Dear Andrea,
    I believe it’s good you gave us an insight why the Ecat’s SK are currently not perused despite the high demand on domestic heating in a reply to Italo R..
    You also said to Frank Ackland that the developments and progress on the SKL would also benefit the SK. Some questions if I may:
    1. Would the improvements on the SKL also reduce the need for maintenance of the SK?
    2. Do you think that maybe a SK combined with a SKL could lead to a high power self sustained heater?
    3. Do you think that the SK is likely also be used for domestic heating in the future?
    4. Some readers of ECW consider using the SKLed for heating their house. It is thought that with maybe 100 of these that would be possible. Do you think that is a good idea? Or:
    5. Would you advice to wait for the Ecat SKL when considering heating (and powering) our homes?
    Thanks for answering our question.
    Kind regards, Gerard

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Readers:
    Today has been announced the Nobel Price for Physics to Prof Giorgio Parisi, of the University of Rome and the INFN (Istituto Nazionale di
    Fisica Nucleare).
    He is an expert, among many other theoretical issues, of the equation of Dirac – see also ref 17 on
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    and puts in evidence the importance of the formalism that is made use of: “the more the number of principles utilized is relatively small respect the number of things that it explains, the more the theory is elegant and rich”: I think that this is the principle of the Occam’s Razor and of the Clifford algebra:

    Dear Andrea.
    In today’s many and large coal and gas powerplants, the energy is converted into steam that drives the generators.
    Is it possible that the boilers can be replaced with large EcatSK so that the remnants of those plants can be reused?
    Sincerely, Svein H. Vormedal.

    @Italo R.
    The ecatSKL is the most important and most needed invention in history of mankind.
    The ecatSKLed and ecatSK are just a bonus in comparison.
    I hope the certification process for the SKL is shorter than the certification process for the SKLed.

    Italo R.:
    I think you merit a more complete answer than I did earlier: the problem with the SK is that it needs to have an industrial size to be convenient and the domestic size has not been certified, because it needs a complex series of maintenance issues. In few words, it must be industrial and under our direct control, so far.
    The SKLed and the SKL, which are based on the same platform, are much simpler, as well as their certification, albeit they are much more complex electronically. Besides, it is not true that to make heat with the SKL takes time, because electricity can be turned into heat with almost 100% of efficiency and very easily. This is why now we are focused on the SKL.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    You are right, it has to bet more diffused.
    Warm Regards,

  • Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    Ecat-SK can give heat immediately, while Ecat-SKL can only give heat in the future.
    The industries of the world need heat NOW.
    Why isn’t the Ecat-SK already widely used in industries around the world as it has already been in operation for at least two years and is already certified for that service?
    Best Regards,
    Italo R.

    Do you still think that in the presentation of december 9 we will see an Ecat SKL in SSM ?

  • Anonymous

    I think on December 9th we will see absolutely nothing.
    Good Bye

  • Espen VDP

    Dr. Rossi:
    Today in Europe there is a big shortage of natural gas which is increasing heating costs to record levels. Now comes winter and we do not know how bad this crisis will become for homes and businesses. Probably things get worse than now.

    You say that your ecat SK heater is working well and is stable. The world needs it.

    How can we get it?

    Dear Andrea.
    1- Do you think today that Ecat SK is as stable and reliable as SKLed?
    2- Will a version of SK be presented on December 9 that may be suitable for mass production and for use in ordinary homes?
    3- What is now the COP for such a device with the latest version of AI installed?
    4- Is certification of such a device far away?
    5- Will a commercialization here take longer than for SKL?
    Sincerely, Svein H. Vormedal.

    A Hit & Run

    I’m a fan of forced air HVAC.
    It allows me to filter the Air, control the humidity, cool, heat and bring in Fresh air(as needed) all from a central air handling unit. This allows for better indoor air quality which according to research is usually worse then the outdoors. They even have a name for it. Sick Building Syndrome.

    From the perspective of requiring a 20Kw heat source, I would suggest a dedicated 20Kw (SK) E-cat. I’m assuming the SK will be cheaper then the SKL as it looks to be simpler. Note in an all electric world, copper will become ever more expensive. This requires no heavy gauge wiring nor an inverter and doesn’t require a larger electrical service(breaker panel). Perhaps this can be configured to also provide for hot water needs. The above is based on the KISS method. (Keep It Simple Silly) Ha, I wonder how many thought I was going to say Stupid???

    It’s been posted that with Cheap energy there’s no need of insulating their homes.
    Insulation serves two purposes.

    1) Comfort. A universal room temperature. Ever sat near a campfire in the fall where your front blisters and your backside freezes.

    2) In an uninsulated home, you’ll require a larger heating/cooling system. That’s more upfront costs. I thought the goal was to save money. I would note twas a time fossil energy was so cheap they thought insulation not worth bothering with. Only to have regrets latter on.

    I fear, as always when things are cheap and plentiful, people become very wasteful. Let’s try and not do that. Let’s try and avoid future regrets.

    Regards everyone,
    Dan C.
