  • Andrea Rossi

    James C. Yates:
    We are focused on making heat and heat can be surely useful to electric energy providers. I want to rule nothing, all I want is to make a useful work.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    I never comment the work of our competitors.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    H.V.:
    With pleasure, because we are going very well.
    Obviously I will take some risk, because we did not have the time for a Sigma 5, but maybe I will accept the risk and if something will go wrong I will take the responsibility. We’ll see. So far so good.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • H.V.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Can you update about the test on course with the Ecat SK?

  • Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Have you considered (or experimented with) the elements of Boron and Fluorine in LENR? It seems that they might function in an LENR environment with Nickel and Hydrogen. Reference the paper “Chemical Aspects of LENR” (2012) by Dr. Pike.

  • James C Yates

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    Your decision to sell “heat”, not the reactor, was a wise step.
    If you can perfect electrical output via E-Cat, and then
    sell electricity to the industrial market, then you will
    rule the world’s energy market. Not that that was your
    goal, but you have a good heart and then you could assert
    your goodness.
    Best regards,
    Iggy

  • Andrea Rossi

    Nils Fryklund:
    That is why I am continuing to work on tests. Your concern is not groundless.
    Tomorrow will be a very important Saturday. Next week the decision.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Nils Fryklund

    Dear Andrea!
    Is really E-catSK as reliable as E-catQX as you have tested a year according to zigma5?
    Is it possible to choose the E-cat type så easy to manufacture?
    Best regards
    Nils Fryklund

  • Andrea Rossi

    Jean:
    All that has been published so far is either groundless ( like the story of the electron capture ) or weak.
    I doubt that it will not be possible to reach a global explication, more likely will be reached theoretical explications for specific effects.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Wendy:
    Probably next week we will take a decision.

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    What is your summary of the state of the SK testing so far?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  • Norma

    Dr Rossi,
    Congratulations for the excellent demo I watched on youtube on the November 23 demo of the Ecat QX.
    Cheers
    Norma

  • Wendy

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Did you decide already if the presentation of the industrial production will start with the Ecat QX or the SK?

  • Jean

    Dear A.R.,
    what do you think of all the theoretical papers produced so far to explain the LENR? Do you think there is some that could prevail among what has published so far?

  • Eric Ashworth

    Abe Vincent, I agree that without a widely accepted theory of how LENRs work and how it can be controlled posses a problem especially for insurance purposes and this is why I have emphasized the importance of the theory and using analogies to gain acceptance. LENRs is no different other than on the nuclear scale i.e. using an event horizon to store the energy, that’s to say unable to distribute energy at the time of creating a mass defect i.e. a compression which at the none nuclear level simply disperses the energy as heat into the environment because heat is an expansion. Heat is simply anything that expands. Anything that contracts creates cold. It is not difficult to understand unless you you want to make it difficult i.e create a huge complicated technology out of something that is something not difficult to understand unless you use a lot of complicated language i.e. see wikipedia its a prime example. Regards Eric Ashworth

  • Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Thank you for your attention to our work.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Abe Vincent:
    The theoretical bases have nothing to do with the safety certifications.
    We obtained the safety certifications for the industrial plants.
    Thank you for your suggestion, but UL does not work only upon designs.
    We have specialists working on this issue. The same that obtained the certifications for the industrial plants.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    Thank you for the magnificend video on youtube “Ecat QX demonstration Stockholm November 24”.
    Perfect measurements, very convincing.
    Willie

  • Abe Vincent

    Tom,

    If you design a product to meet UL from the outset then getting UL certification shouldnt significantly delay any product development. It’s typically weeks or months not years and you can do a lot in parallel with other things you need do for any mass produced product.

    In the case of LENR the issue will be proving it’s safe. That might be very difficult without a widely accepted theory of how it works and how it can be controlled.

  • Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Your decision to provide heat instead of selling standalone eCat units is brilliant from legal aspects. Under the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), the standalone eCat system delivered to the customer would inherently include an implied warranty of merchantability and all the problems that the “goods” requirement under Article 2 entails. By selling a “service” of heat, you avoid all of the legal entanglements. A good decision by your corporate legal staff/management.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Chuck Davis:
    Yes.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Chuck Davis

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Does the Ecat have to be connected to the grid to operate?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    Thank you for the suggestion,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    Congratulations on your first day of testing the SK module results!

    Warm regards,
    Tom

    PS: Might you be willing to consider UL testing for home safety parallel to industrial installations so you won’t have to wait even longer than you think is required?

    Perhaps you could consider sending a 1kw Unit to UL for safety testing and perhaps even announce the submission at the presentation?

    Big Money will never “authorize” home units. UL might though.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Yesterday we made a very good job, with excellent output.

    To get the certifications for household applications will be necessary a reliability history of industrial applications.

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi

    In the fall of 2015, it seemed to us that soon we would see the domestic E-Kat. What a wave of hopes raised the real prospect of the appearance of E-Kat in every house!
    But now there is little hope left. You have concentrated all your efforts on industrial installations. In addition, you will agree that your current financial model (heat sales), interesting for industrial consumers, is not at all suitable for private customers.
    Is there any hope that in the next 2 to 3 years there will be 10 kW units on the market? Or is this a more distant prospect?

    Refusal from the primary, mass production of domestic installations is:
    – The influence of politicians?
    – The economy?
    – Bureaucratic difficulties (certification)?

    We are waiting for the start of sales, after the January presentation!
    I wish you every success and all the best.

    Your transferred fan.

    Dear Andrea.
    Your decision of only selling heat is the smartest you may take at this moment.
    By selling heat you are now presenting a possibility for all industries and activities that needs steam as energy carrier.
    This may cover 50% of the worlds energy consumption. By only buying heat and keeping their existing energy sources intact as a utility system, the customers takes a minimal risk.
    A lower energy price and the value of marketing their products as more environmentally friendly will benefit their business without any costly and risky investments.
    This will function as if I was offered to be transported by a nonpolluting car to my office every day to a price of 80% of my own gasoline cost, and I keept my car as a reserve.
    For yourself, the ultimate control over a new product with a new technology will also minimize the risk for catastrophically failures.
    When your product has proven a steady and trustworthy function, your biggest problem will be the queue of customers. Good luck with the important SK tests today!
    Regards Svein Henrik

    The Italian avatar-politician Giulio Andreotti was famous for being involved in politics from the end of the 40’ all the way to the late 90’. He was famous for his political longevity, his ability to remain untouched by the political thunderstorms that wiped out generations of his contemporary fellow MPs and – among other things – for his razor-sharp witticism. Personally I never liked him, but I admired his intelligence.
    One of his sentences (among the many) that everyone in Italy loved to quote is “It’s morally wrong to think ill all the time about people, but you very often turn out to be right”.

    I have followed your endeavor since the Bologna presentation, I have unreserved trust in the fact that you have found your effect and I have a great deal of personal esteem for you, your hard-working attitude and the well deserved vindication that you need to obtain.

    However, I wanted to point out that as soon as you will start selling heat, the voices of your opponents will not be silenced. There will still be (and there already is) someone that will state how ultimately hard evidences of the existence of your process are not present.

    So my question is: in order to tombstone the hyper-skeptics, will you allow 3rd parties to observe/certify the amount of energy (any kind) that will be introduced inside the reactor and the amount of heat that is generated as an output?

    If there is no fraud the delta is going to be in the order of magnitudes. This will silence once and for all all the many that still believe that you are a snake-oil dealer.

  • Thank you Gberra for the information, Capricorn Energy is only a couple hours drive from my office.

    Gberra:
    Thank you for the information,

    Good luck with your SK tests! On a different note I have stumbled onto a heat to electricity engine based on the “Barton engine” by a company capricornpower.com.au. Barton engines claim 30% -47% efficiency heat to electricity. Capricornpower has installed demonstration plants at crematoriums to convert waste heat ( 700 degrees and above ) to electricity. They also plan to sell 125kw demonstration plants in shipping containers – just add hot air. I know that you are focusing on selling heat initially. Best of luck !

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    How are going the tests on course in your lab?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Yes.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    You said that yourr earlier tests with the SK were done at a specialized lab. Are you doing your current tests at that same lab?

    Best wishes,

    Frank Acland

  • Andrea Rossi

    Anthony:
    you can choose between:
    1- go to http://www.ecat.com then choose “Press”, then choose the Stockholm complete video of the demo ( about 3 hours) or the resume ( about 6 minutes ), or the lecture of Carl-Oscar Gullstrom on the theoretical bases we are working upon ( about 1 hour )
    There you will find also the important article on Aftenpost, one of the major newspapers of Scandinavia
    2- google ” Ecat QX Stockholm demonstration November 24 2017
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Anthony

    Dr Rossi,
    where can I find the report of the presentation of the Ecat QX made in Stockholm ?
    Cheers
    Anthony
