    Good Day Andrea:

    this is to recognize and share an appreciation for your good mood as well as to ask for clarification.

    I am astounded at the rapid evolution of the Ecat from the days of Warm Cat and Hot Cat to the current Ecat QX with its 1kW singlet reactor in addition to the Ecat SK currently being assessed at its 10kW and 100kW singlet reactor power rating. It is no wonder you are in good mood.

    My request for clarification centers on your assertion of a better than 2-year payback period. What are you using as the benchmark source of energy your future customers are investing away from?

    I ask as it is becoming apparent that the LCOE (Levelized Cost of Energy) is rapidly changing due to changes in the costs for different technologies. See as a reference the linked Forbes article on current economic analysis; page 2 of the piece shares relevant LCOE comparisons. Can the upcoming Ecat QX clearly out-compete these lowest LCOE technologies?

    The results are not much encouraging in either way: I am experiencing a gravity field strong vibration, though ( or exchange of gravitons, if you prefer ), between the Earth and my feet, with gravitational waves rippling toward my legs. But this does not help.

    Martyn Aubrey:
    1- yes
    2- it is an integral related to the flow
    3- no, because it is useless
    4- no, just parallels

    Gerard McEk:
    The payback of 2 years should be comprehensive of all.

    Sam:
    Thank you for the inspiring link. I agree with its content and I think that to assume everything has been made so harmonic casually is against the entropy law. This means that the faith in God has more rigorous scientific affinity than the Faith in Atheism, that has no proofs at all and is not subject to falsification in any situation; the disrespect of the entropy law, I think, is the strongest scientific proof against the gurus of the religion of atheists.
    Warm Regards,

  • Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    You said that the E-cat will pay itself back in two years. That sounds very good.
    I assume you did not include also replacement of one or two units and the work and sending cost for exchanging ‘recharged’ units? I am assuming this because to do that efficiently you would need a very efficient organization in each country, and that will take a while.
    Kind regards, Gerard

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    I have a few more questions about the Ecat-QX unit configuration, if you are able to answer.

    1. Can the output of one 1kW unit be connected to the input of a subsequent unit, forming a cascaded multi-stage heat amplifier?

    2. If so, is there a practical limit to the number of cascaded units?

    3. Have you tested this configuration yet?

    4. Do you think that the industrial plant will be made up of 1kW units connected serially and then some of these multi-unit cascades connected in parallel?

    Many Thanks again,

    Kind Regards,
    Martyn Aubrey

    Dear Andrea:
    I know you play tennis with passion and you are a Physics student; I think tennis is a sport wherein a lot of Physics is involved: does this help you in one way or the other?

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Will it be possible to command the Ecat plants in remote?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Claud:
    After taxes, of course.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Claud

    Dear Andrea, you mention a payback period for the e-cat, shorter than two years.
    You mean before or after the taxes that users pay for the power delivery ?

    WaltC:
    1,2,3,4: depending on the specific situation and design, every case is possible
    5,6: yes
    Warm Regards,

  • WaltC

    Dear Andrea,

    You indicated that the water/fluid flow is through a pair of pipe connectors– is it your plan that these pipes handle:
    1) High Pressure Steam (greater than 75 psig)?
    2) Medium Pressure Steam (16-75 psig)?
    3) Low Pressure Steam (below 16 psig)?
    4) Hot Water?

    Also, would this design work with other fluids, such as:
    5) oil?
    6) pressurized air?

    Thanks,
    WaltC

  • Chuck Davis

    Dear Andrea,
    during the process of refueling will the customer remain out of service, or the issue has been assessed by a redundance of modules?

  • Jim Rosenburg

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    A- is the 10 kW module being rested?
    B- is the 100 kW module being rested?
    C- is your partner assisting with these modules?
    Thank you,
    Jim

  • Martyn Aubrey

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    Your rapid development of the Ecat-QX is quite amazing. The presentation of the new industrial plant will be a World changing historical event.

    I have a practical question about the form of the 1kW module, if you can answer at this stage in its development.

    You have said that the 1kW unit will be a 25x25x18cm plastic box which will contain multiple individual reactors, the heat exchanger and the single control unit.

    How will the water/fluid flow as it is being heated?
    1. It will flow over the external surface of the box.
    2. It will flow through gaps/slots in the box and then over the individual reactors inside the box.
    3. It will enter and exit the box through a pair of pipe connectors.
    4. Some other way.

    Many Thanks for your answer.

    Kind Regards
    Martyn Aubrey

    Jerry Sharrad:
    Anti-gravitons cannot exist. This comes from the fact that gravity is a 2-spin field. Oh, I beg your pardon..they can exist, in science fiction ( “Back to the future” ).
    This said, obviously we cannot observe gravitons at our temperatures, anti or straight as they might be supposed to be.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Jerry Sharrard

    During the experiments you made with the Ecat in the last 10 years did you experience, suspect or consider antigravity effects?

    Dear Andrea,

    The E-Cat Box you plan to industrialize, does it have 1 or 13 QXs inside?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  • DT

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    What do you think about the commercial and cold war on course? Do you think it will affect the diffusion of the Ecat?

  • EB

    Which will be the price of the Ecat X, ballpark moreless 20%?

  • Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted about two different internal configurations of a 1kW output reactor: (a) one made up of 13 each 80W units and (b) one composed of a single 1kW unit.

    Do both units have the same:

    1. Maximum sustained operating temperature?
    2. The same efficiency or effective COP?
    3. The same dimensions?
    4. Are they made of the same materials?

    Rupert:
    The annihilation of any possibility of reverse engineering is contingent with the industrialization and the start of the massive sales of the Ecat QX. As strange as it might seem, it will be easy to understand when we will introduce the industrialized product to the market.

  • Eric Ashworth

    Harvey, Good post, some people think physics is a known subject, nothing else to know. Obviously it is not as physics is a recognized subject of study in academia but seems to have certain restrictions within, regards certain phenomena. LENRs seems to fall into this category although it is no alone. I believe, the reason why this knowledge is most important is because knowledge reveals mysteries i.e. the understanding will reveal a systemic system of integration with regards to mass defect between two close yet dissimilar systems of an integrated whole. If you access wikipedia ‘Emergence’ You will learn that through out the ages it has been known that the whole is more than its parts. The formula being W=P+1. With regards physics it is the certain parts of the whole that control the mystery. Consequently, only the intelligent parts knows what is going on and for what reason with regards an evolutionary mass defect that maintains the mystery. Regards Eric Ashworth

  • Rupert

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    The impossibility to perform reverse engineering exists also for the Ecat QX prototypes, as the ones that you already made, or it is contingent with the massive production and distribution of the Ecat QX?
    Cheers,
    Rupert

  • Reyes Garavelli

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    1- Where can I find a list of the most important replications made by third parties on your Ecat?
    2- Will you offer also the Ecat QX to third parties to test its performance?
    3- If yes, can you anticipate the identity of such third parties?
    Godspeed,
    Reyes

  • Andrea Rossi

    Harvey:
    Thank you, very nice insight in this link. I would suggest to compare the work of Fermat and Popper ( strangely not cited) on the same issue of the falsificability as a fundamental component of any theory in any scientific field.

    Elias Rapaport:
    Because that was a demonstration, therefore I had to make the Ecat observed.
    Warm Regards,

  • Elias Rapaport

    I watched the complete video of the Ecat QX demo of Stockholm of November 24. Why did you put the Ecat out of the white plastic box instead of inside it, as you now say the Ecat has to be?

  • Raffaele Bongo

    Hello A. Rossi

    Does the approval file of the domestic E-Cat progress?

    The domestic E-Cat will upset the order of the world in which we live and my feeling is that the powerful of this order are exerting pressure for this approval and the domestic E-Cat never to see the day. How to imagine our houses without a meter? This very attractive vision for the individual is inconceivable for electricians, tankers, gas and even states that collect taxes.
    Best regard
    Your support Raffaele

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Which is correct?

    a) You have a 1 kW module that is made up of 13 80W QX reactors
    b) You have a 1 kW module that is made up of a single E-Cat QX reactor
    c) You have both a) and b)

    Thank you very much,

    Frank Acland
