    Dear Andrea,
    I know, it is something that does not matter to me but, to increase the power to 1KW is a matter to do bigger stuff, or to increase the capacity to extract the current, or both.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The Concept of a Renewable Energy Virtuous Circle, CREVC

    I like the idea of being ‘Energy Independent’, or in reality that ‘we’ should be in ‘Renewable energy Surplus’.

    That would mean that an individual or Institution produced, stored, and maintained enough of it’s own Renewable Energy that it never needed to use Fossil fuel energy, and potentially could sell/trade surplus renewable energy as or when needed.

    The application of this concept can now become a reality.

    The application of this concept is what is needed to ‘defeat’ the use of fossil fuels, and get to ‘Zero carbon’.

    Renewable Energy by itself is not sufficient if we are still using fossil fuels to produce or maintain renewable energy systems.

    Full life cycle CREVC is what is required. No Fossil fuels.

    “CREVCNOFF”.

    As an example, Wind turbine manufacturers could use Renewable energy generated by wind turbines to manufacture, install, maintain and at end of life, recycle them. A Whole life virtuous circle.

    True decoupling from Fossil fuels.

    My question. Do you like this concept and use it or wish to use it in your manufacturing facilities.

    Dear Andrea,

    do you try to increase the power of a generator when developing a 1 kW SKL, or to combine several SKL already in production?

    Love greetings

    Dear Andrea,

    In mass production, if at all possible, you don’t actually do quality control on the individual piece. The complete manufacturing process is validated so that the scrap rate is negligible. Please get advice from a validation expert so that the unit costs can be reduced.

    Kind regards
    Wilfried

    Robert:
    Probably you mean 18650 Akkus: I don’t know any 16850 Akkus. This application must be tested. I do not know if it is worth, it depends on the specific situation. It is much better to use 12 V batteries.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Robert

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    is it possible to make the input (Ecatlep)
    DC 3x 3,7 V or DC 4x 3,7V out of 16850 Akkus?
    Thanks for Your Answer.

    Dear Andrea
    the paper
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    opens the way to exploit a formerly inexplorated source of energy, you recently dubbed EDEN, that could be used also for completely different tasks.
    Very interesting,
    Cheers

    Dear Andrea

    May I ask some questions about the on going production

    I understand from recent posts that specific components are being manufactured rather than complete units although some complete units have also been assembled and tested.

    1. Is the production of the component you mentioned continuing on a more or less daily (work day) basis?

    2. Or is it more in batches due to early set up and testing etc

    3. Can you say which component is being manufactured? The reactor. controller ir something else?

    Are you able to test the component without full assembly.

    4. Do you run a simple test each component a power cycle say or just a small sample

    5. Is the quality and success rate of the production high?

    6. Do you see that in e future production can be expanded to other sites or will you keep it mostly centralized?

    7. Or Could we see modularized recycling and production plants in every city or r town somewhere down the line?

    Thanks an Best Regards

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The below link describes a new 3-D printed heat exchanger.

    https://techxplore.com/news/2022-04-3d-printed-exchanger-efficient-conventional.html

    Heat exchangers, devices which transfer heat between fluids without mixing them, have a wide range of practical applications. Heat exchangers which transfer thermal energy between fluids are used in systems including refrigeration, fuel cells and the types of internal combustion engines used in cars and aircrafts.

    In a new paper published in Applied Thermal Engineering, the researchers describe how they developed and built the prototype system, which they estimate to be 50% more effective than a market-leading conventional heat exchanger despite being one-tenth of its size.

    The system owes its effectiveness to the design of architected surfaces over which liquids flow through the exchanger. The cube-shaped exchanger draws water through a core studded with tiny holes arranged in a gyroid configuration.

    Gyroids are part of a group of cellular designs that are constructed using triply periodic minimal surface geometries having non-self-intersecting and highly symmetrical periodic surfaces.

    Perhaps, you may find a use for these heat exchangers.

    Thermal regards,

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I thought of this several times, but it seems impossible.

    But I was wondering…

    If you have a set of 2 to 4 SKLep’s with battery backup, and one SKLep (@ 100 W) is generating electricity, with 1-3 SKLeps in reserve, can part of the 100 W output (e.g. 10 – 20 W) from the first stage be used to drive one or two 1-KW second stage SKLeps?!

    You might obtain a second stage output of 1 – 2 kW from this 10-20 W the first stage output.

    Meanwhile, you’re still charging the backup batteries.

    (And, occasionally, use the full 100 W first stage output to generate 10 KW at the second stage output).

    Is this possible, wishful thinking or unsafe?

    Best regards,

    Joseph Fine

    Peter Tomaszewski:
    Dear Mr. Tomaszewski,
    thank you very much for your comment. I know that MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) devices are not really suitable for the Ecat, but currently there are no small certified grid-tied inverters without MPPT on the market and there are not many in the lower power range. The Ecat isn’t really compatible with solar, but as far as I know you can set the Ecat to 16V 6.25A and three in a row would give you 48V 6.25A. That’s about what you get from a solar panel.
    So it would be great if someone would develop an inverter that would do the job, but it has to be certified for the country. In Germany, you can feed up to 600 W of electrical power into the grid. If you have more, you need a certified company to install it.
    It would be nice if you could report when more information is available from the company in Shenzen.

    Kind regards, H. Dieter Preschel, Germany

  • Erik

    Mr Rossi,

    Can you tell us what sort of recycle plan you have for these devices?
    Once they get to there life span, do we send them back?

    We have a big enough issues with lithium batteries been recycled or disposed of, what makes this a cleaner power in the long run?

    Thank you

    Esteemed Andrea Rossi,
    as you know for sure, powerful interests, unimaginable to most, are behind the management of world energy.
    You and your collaborators have been and have been the subject of suspected defamation, which is reasonable to assume is not accidental.
    As the date of mass production approaches, these attempts at discredit and/or sabotage will increase.
    A piece of advice I can give you is to launch the distribution, even of only thousands of units, as soon as possible. I think it is the only guarantee that we can have that the project will not be blocked before its birth.
    All our esteem.

    Stimato Andrea Rossi,
    come lei sa di per certo, potenti interessi, inimmaginabili ai più, sono dietro la gestione dell’energia mondiale. Lei e i suoi collaboratori state e siete stati oggetto di sospette diffamazioni, che è lecito supporre non casuali.
    Con l’avvicinarsi della data di produzione di massa, questi tentativi di discredito e/o sabotaggio aumenteranno.
    Un consiglio che le posso dare è quello di lanciare la distribuzione, anche di sole migliaia di unità, appena possibile. Penso sia l’unica garanzia che si possa avere che il progetto non venga bloccato prima del suo nascere.
    Tutta la nostra stima.

  • Albert Ellul

    Dear Dott. Rissi,

    Once the day of the rollout of the ECat SKLep is approaching, will you be informing each client of the approximate date of shipping his ordered units?

    Thank you.

  • Dan Galburt

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    I am trying to get a picture of the ECat SKLep’s readiness for volume production.

    Question 1
    Have you built at least 50 complete production prototype ECat SKLep assemblies including control electronics? By production prototype I mean that the units are close to a shippable configuration.

    Question 2
    Have at least 40 of these production prototype assemblies been tested and found to meet specifications?

    Question 3
    Have at least 10 of these production prototype assemblies been run at full power for at least 1000 hours and met specifications throughout the test.

    Question 4
    Have at least 2 of these production prototypes been run at full power for at least 1000 hours using a rechargeable battery to power the ECat SKLep without any grid connection.

    Warm Regards,
    Dan Galburt

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    What do you need to be ready, since you already have a working item?
    Governments could give you all the support and help you need.
    Immediately.
    Everyone needs it now, especially with the ongoing energy and economic crisis.
    You have the solution, closed in your laboratory.
    I apologize, but I don’t understand.

    Kind Regards,

  • Andrea Rossi

    Yuri:
    Yes, you got it. Obviously my hypothesis could be wrong, it is just a hypothesis, but I think it is the best theoretical explication of what we saw during our tests,
    Warm Regards,

  • Yuri

    Dr Rossi,
    Reading the paper
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    and eventually your related comments on this blog, what I understood is that your theorical hypothesis can be reasumed in the following steps in succession:
    1- ZPE
    2-dV/dt with high V-> increase of ZBW and Aharon-Bohm effect
    3- matterwaves from ZBW- electrons phase change
    4- formation of electron clusters in phase
    5-

    Dear Mr. Preschel. Most inverters need highervoltage as just 12Vdc at zhe MTTP input, therefore several Skleps must be hooked-up in series. Use another MTTP input as the one which is workig with your solar panel is fully occupied with solar panels. Sure, after Skleps are connected the other MTTP finds optimal point quite fast. It would stay constant as the Sklep delivers all time the same values.
    Quite honestly, for Sklep-Generator one needs dedicated inverters: different input voltages and input currents and no MTTP or a very simple one. Whole inverter can be very simple and low cost. I got input from a big Shenzen inverter producer, that they already work on such devices to came to market as soon as Sklep is available for sale. The game is on !

    hello dr rossi,
    The Putin/Ukrain war will probably not come to an end if the Russian side gives in after negotiations, based on experience with the trigger of the war.
    The cessation of imports from Russia also always hurts
    will hurt us very much.
    Why, I keep asking myself, aren’t you in contact with economic ministries in the EU or the USA?
    courage,
    we your followers stand by you .

  • Steven Nicholes Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted: “The basic module is cm 14 x 9 x 2.5 ( 5.6″ x 3.6″ x 1″ )” Can the Basic Controller module control:
    1. Only one SKLep module;
    2. A maximum of two SKLep modules;
    3, A maximum of three SKLep modules; OR
    4. A maximum greater than three SKLep modules?

    Dan Galburt:
    1- no
    2- no
    3- n.a.
    You are right, I answered ambiguously, the correct answer would have been “about 1000 Skleps have been partially manufactured, my fault,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Dan Galburt

    Dear DR. Rossi,

    On March 8 you replied to Frank that you had manufactured more than 1000 ECat SKLeps.

    On March 30 you indicated that you started the volume manufacture of selected components of the ECat SKlep, but complete assemblies.

    These 2 claims appear to be contradictory, but perhaps they are not.

    Question1

    Have you manufactured more than 1000 preproduction ECat SKLep assemblies including control electronics?

    Question2

    Are you using these preproduction units for product testing and private demos?

    Question3

    If the answers to Questions 1 & 2 are yes, then could you publish a picture of multiple ECat SKLeps being tested?

    Warm Regards,

    Dan Galburt

  • Pavel

    Mr. Rossi,
    I know from my own experience that new products can be faulty at first and I would not want to wait long months for a replacement.
    1. Should I order a spare SKLeps as a backup in case some break or are they 100% reliable ?
    2. Example: I will have 100 SKLeps connected and running, how many spare ones should I order ?
    Thank You.
