    Dear Dr.Rossi,
    do you know this company?: https://ndb.technology ?
    They are developing small nuclear batteries which are using sources made from atomic waste and deliver constant energy over hundreds of years witout having recharged.

    Do not you too think that you now should hurry with our Ecat-SKLep to start flood the market ?
    I think it is very time now !!

    Best regards,
    Roffi

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    you wrote many times that the ecat work just if it is plugged to the mains, up to now. And you work and research on the SSM without mains.
    Maybe you can attach this fact on the top of to your blog. So people must not ask again and again why it does not work in cars, yet.

    Best regards

    Dear Dr. Rossi: We know from your demonstration that the E-CAT SK-LEP works great when the load resistance remains constant at 1 Ohm. Can you describe how well the SK-LEP handles variations in load resistance? From what you have, and have not shared with the public, it seems to me that the SK-LEP has trouble handling a variable load resistance. If you are charging a battery the load resistance will remain relatively constant, but if you are powering an inverter it will vary greatly depending on how much power is demanded at the inverter’s output. Is this why you have not recommended any brand/model of inverter, or shown any photos or diagrams of SK-LEP’s powering inverters? If the SK-LEP has trouble handling a variable load, is there a good work around? Perhaps charging one battery while a duplicate battery is in use powering the inverter? How far from the 1 ohm value can the load resistance vary and still have the SK-LEP working properly?

    Dear Andrea ,
    How much is the shipping cost for 1 SKLep 100W to Belgium ?
    And is this per 1 SKLep ? or the same for 3 or 5 pieces ?
    Thanks

    Dear Andrea,

    what is so difficult about equipping a car with a range extender with ECats instead of a generator?
    There are certainly many hobbyists who would be happy to do this free of charge.

    Best Regards,

    Dear Andrea
    I could imagine 20 Ecat connected in series that gives 240 volts.
    These should have been mounted in a frame together with a DC to AC converter.
    I could then connect one or more such devices to my current facility.
    For me, it would be reassuring to have the inverter adapted and delivered from you.
    Sincerely, Svein H. Vormedal

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    It appears that the SKLep components can (potentially) produce a constant level of electrical power for long periods of time. However, the actual daily electrical demand for an industrialized society varies over the day. Usually, peak demand occurs during the day, while minimal during the nighttime. Commercial large storage batteries (e.g., Tesla) might be coupled with the output of the SKLep unit(s). The SKLep units would produce power at a constant level, and the battery storage would handle the peaks and valleys of the grid demand variations. Multiple clusters of such units, operating in parallel would provide decentralization. Some system control logic and network communications would be required for start-up, shut-down, and other transitory conditions. Thoughts?

    Mr Rossi,
    How do you reconcile what is written in the paper
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    with the fact that by the first principle of thermodynamics “free meals” do not exist ?

    Hi, Andrea.

    Thinking of the 100% electric vehicle and its batteries that are used for powering the wheels, could your SKLep at this time be specifically used for charging these batteries while the vehicle is in motion?

    Thanks for a simple yes or no answer so as to not take up your valuable time with a longer explanation.

    Warmest regards. Jean Pierre

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    You have been offering Ecat Plants for the production of industrial heat for some time.
    I have a few questions about this:

    Is the basic technology used there (physical effect) the same as with Ecat SKLep?

    In Europe, due to the situation in Ukraine, there is a shortage of gas and in the industry
    a large demand for industrial heat. Why don’t you offer the industrial Ecat more aggressively?

    Why is there only one branch office in Spain/Portugal in Europe? And not e.g. in Germany or France?

    Dear Dr. Rossi, it has been said that the stone age did not end because cavemen ran out of stones, and the oil age will not end because the world runs out of oil. In restrospect, from the works of Nikola Tesla, to the 1989 cold fusion discovery, and perhaps many other wonderful developments in energy creation that have been derided, discredited, supressed or quietly filed into obscurity, it is increasingly horrific to think that the nartural destruction of our planet, and possibly its increasing inhospitility to life for ourselves and future generations, has been caused foursquare by the selfish and greedy interests of the oil industry. A fair guess is that this industry and its associated allies in governments is and has always been the most virulent enemy of new technologies in this respect. Undoubtedly they were aware of the damage being caused to our planet’s ecosystems, but human greed and wickedness triumphed over all other considerations, in theur desire to perpetuate and increase oil use. God willing, the E Cat, its future variants, and many associated technologies will appear in the world marketplace very soon, before the ecological destruction becomes terminal.

    1- The production of 1 million units has a cost by orders of magnitude superior to an idle factory.
    2- You, obviously, did not read what I wrote many times: I am not sure I will reach the critical target, although I think we will, otherwise we’d start

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi when we are talking about fuel (for Ecat SKLep) , is it real (H2,Ni,Pd ,D2 etc..) or we deal with ZPE (zero point energy) ?

    Warm Regards,
    P.V.

  • Barry Mead

    Dear Dr. Rossi: For months now you have only confirmed that you have produced around 100 SK-LEP units. If all the bugs are worked out why aren’t you making more SK-LEP units NOW? The factory is ready, and sitting idle it is probably costing you more than if you were using it to make SK-LEP units. Since you are sure you will reach your goal by the end of the year, why not get a head start on production? Why wait to start the 18-month production delay? It seems that perhaps there are still some issues that you have not solved or you would be cranking out more units already. Are there still bugs to work out?

  • Sam

  • Heinz Sause

    hello dr rossi,
    after you have not given us any information about a (particular)
    MIL standardization could give.
    What about the CE mark for products in the European Union?
    Without such a mark, distribution in the EU is probably not feasible!

    You are very concerned about reverse engineering of your product, and I assume that you know best and have reason to be concerned. I assume that you have plans to manage this risk, but might I provide my thoughts?
    You have an advantage of being first to market, and thereby creating a brand loyalty which should help. I assume you have plans to quickly increase production to meet demand, thus maintaining your advantage. Over the longer term, however, I think you will benefit from having a path of continuous improvements which will keep your market advantage going and give loyal customers an opportunity for cutting edge products, keeping your competitors always behind you.
    I would like to muse a bit about future developments you can make, and indeed you are already working on many of these, I am sure. It will be critical to manage the order in which your improved products are introduced, to take advantage of your competitors’ necessity to reverse engineer rather than create.
    So, the first thing I can think of is price. You will want gradually lower the price of your products – you don’t necessarily have to always be the cheapest, but you will have to maintain a competitive price. Apple computers are never the cheapest, but they are always competitive because of their quality. Taking a cue from Apple, design is also a factor which can make a huge difference – a beautiful, well designed product will always be a competitive factor.
    Another thing you can improve is power density – either by making the product smaller or more powerful. You are working on this with the 1Kw model already. There will be some physical limit to how small or powerful individual units can be made, but it is usually more than can be imagined at the beginning!
    The next thing is to make the product more versatile. As you have noted, the best use of the SKLep currently is as a battery charger, working while attached to grid power. The units can run in self-sustaining mode, so drawing very little power from the grid, while charging a household size battery to meet the actual electricity needs of the home. I calculated that, by simply running a few SKLep units which simply fed power back to the grid, I could largely eliminate my electricity bills (except for the “delivery” charges our power utility charges).
    It is also an ideal companion to a solar power system – the solar system can be much smaller, mostly for powering several SKLep units, which will charge the batteries. This would provide most of the power a household can use. I haven’t compared the payback periods for the SKLep relative to solar panels, but I bet it would be a large advantage. If some of the power can be sold to the grid, so much the better.
    What will be a huge improvement for customers is increased autonomy of operation, that is, being able to use the SKLep system without access to constant input power from the grid. You have said that it might be possible for the SKLep to charge the battery which supplies it. While the SKLep units won’t be able to run in SSM in this situation, operation in this mode will improve the variety of situations in which a customer might use the SKLep.
    However, having a model which will start without external input and work in self-sustaining mode will be the ultimate advantage. This would allow the SKLep to be used in almost any setting for almost any use. Power available anytime, anywhere, for any purpose!
    I will finish with a couple of questions –
    1) Are you currently planning a path of improvements similar to what I have laid out?
    2) Are these improvements intended to maintain competitiveness against copycat manufacturers?

    I would be interested if anyone else can think of improvements that can be made to keep the E-Cat competitive in the face of competition!

    Dr. Rossi,
    The single greatest feature of the Ecat-SKLep is its ability to produce 100W of electric power, uninterrupted, for anywhere from 3 years (Warranty period) to 11.4 years (Operational Lifetime); however, currently, the only reinforcement that exists for this very important spec is a single 14 minute video.

    Experience suggests that when people make purchase decisions– be it for small or large purchases– they prefer to rely on multiple, corroborative data points rather than just one.

    So my question:
    1) Is there any way– sooner than “Plan B” and with less effort than Plan B– to provide additional, confirmatory evidence of the SKLeps sustained kWh power delivery?

    Thanks,
    WaltC
