    Neri Accornero:
    I agree,
    Warm Regards,

  • Dear Andrea we are all waiting to see ECAT in SSM on your site, please don’t put the spotlight on the scale to prove that there are no hidden batteries, the less things clutter up the scene the better, and then someone could always suspect that you fixed the scale to the weight you want since you won’t be able to continuously measure weight while streaming. Just put one or two small G4 – 3w 12v led lamps in parallel, no one will be able to suspect hidden batteries. If you also reduce the round container of the ECAT as much as possible, it would be even better.

    Dr Rossi,
    During the stream of the SSM will you open the audio and talk with us ?

  • Damiano

    Dear Andrea

    To reach the goal of the 1M “devices”, have you considered selling electricity instead of devices ?

    People understand much better a “contract” where you will sell electricity at 1 cent each kWh than buying a device

    I would immediately buy a “contract” where you sell electricity at 1cent (euro) each kWh

    why not ?

    Wilfried Babelotzky,

    The effective cost of eCat SKLep technology is both simple to calculate and complex at the same time.

    A $25 USD SKLep produces 10 Watts of electrical energy and can, reportedly, work for 100,000 hours. Therefore, over its expected lifetime, it will produce 1 MegaWatts of electrical power. This results in an average cost of $0.025 USD per kW-hr. This is the simple computation.

    The complex computation depends on whether there are transportation costs (generated and used locally or generated from a distance), investment costs, maintenance costs, and profits.

    Solar (PV) units obviously only work well in direct sunlight which only occurs a portion of the 24-hour day. Wind turbines only work when there is wind (not too calm and not too windy). They also have costs to convert the provided energy into a useful form – typically grid-compatible power.

    If the user application requires constant power, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for years, then the SKLep is likely the best candidate.

    If the user application only requires power when the sun is directly overhead, then Solar PV may be the best. Likewise for wind turbines.

    I suspect your main point was you think the SKLep is priced too high. It will likely be priced at the point where competitive technologies and other producers are at as in a classic economic analysis.

    Will the price of SKLep technology drop? Possibly, either due to competitive pressures or yield improvements, or for other reasons. But for now, it is what it is.

    Hello dear inventor Andrea Rossi
    I took the liberty of drawing attention to you and your inventions at an institution in Germany.
    The motto there is:
    home for
    Radical new thinkers The Federal Agency for Disruptive Innovations SPRIND creates spaces in which innovators can take risks and think radically differently.

    As far as I know the ITER project in the south of France, could that the project you mean?
    That project cost more than 20 billion $, with only seconds worked last year. the project uses much more energy than can be supplied.
    The type 10 and 100 e-cat Sklep use virtually no energy but produce 10W and/or 100W per hour respectively.
    Kind regards, Jitse

    @W.Babelotzky
    The cheapest electricity comes from PV and Wind turbines. PV can produce about 1-2 ct/kwh in the desert or 4-6 ct/kwh in Germany. But the problem is to deliver it to the consumers. In Germany just the transportation of electricity is about 10 ct plus tax 2 ct. And there are other taxes and charges above. The production now is because of expensive frackinggas about 10-20 ct. At the end the consumer has to pay about 40 ct/kwh.
    An ecat which produce electricity under 1 ct/kwh is always the better solution.

  • Wilfried Babelotzky

    Dear Andrea,

    To be more precise, it is 1.32 ct USD and it is a photovoltaic system: https://www.ewec.ae/en/power-plant/al-dhafra-solar-pv
    Is it conceivable that ECAT will become competitive on this at some point?

    Best regards

    it has been calculated that in Sardinia (an Italian region very exposed to the sun) the 100% yield of a solar system is only 800 hours a year

  • Andrea Rossi

    Wilfried Babelotzky:
    To my knowledge your information is wrong.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Wilfried Babelotzky

    Dear Andrea,

    to my knowledge, the cheapest source of electricity in the world is a large-scale solar thermal plant that generates electricity for $0.01 per kWh.
    Is it conceivable that the ECAT can become competitive to this by revising the design and manufacturing?

    Kind regards
    Wilfried

    By chance I landed on ARPA-E Funding opportunity announcements page where it is offering 10M$ for proposals demonstrating LENR real capacity to produce excess energy. It seems Submission was closed Nov 15, 2022, but anyway probably was not of your interest.
    I’m curious about how many proposals were submitted.
    Looking forward to your products’ delivery start.
    Best wishes for this 2023 to you and all your supporters.

  • Wilfried Babelotzky

    Dear Andrea,

    would it be technically possible to develop an ECAT with 1 W?
    If so, is it then possible to realise an approximately proportional volume decrease again?

    Kind regards

    Dear Andrea Rossi.

    You responded to someone else’s posting that you do not know how drones (or unmanned air vehicles – UAVs) work.

    See
    https://core.ac.uk/download/pdf/81581476.pdf
    An excellent engineering paper on electrical power requirements for UAVs.

    Perhaps someone could use a gridless SKLep variant for a “round the world UAV flight”? Likely a kW (or less) unit would suffice as the electrical power source.

  • Tom Conover

    Andrea,
    You and me in our first dance
    Our eyes are closed
    We’re lost in one sweet embrace
    Since those days the world has changed
    But our love remains the same
    God knows we’ve had our share of saving grace.

    After all these years
    You make it feel brand new
    After the fires that we walked through
    Against the odds we never lost our faith
    In our house we’ve made our home
    Where our children all have grown
    Precious moments time cannot erase
    Make a living up and down the gypsy highways
    Seasons that we’ve had to share
    The days and nights that I was gone
    After all these years
    You sacrificed, believed in me
    And you stood strong
    Cause with our love there’s nothing left to
    After all these years
    You stood by me
    The days and nights that I was gone
    After all these years
    You’ve sacrificed, believed in me
    And you stood strong

  • Luisa

    Dr Rossi,
    When do you think we will see the Ecat SSM on live streaming ?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Jan Srajer:
    Thank you for your opinion,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Jan Šrajer

    Mr.Rossi
    I think that there is no need to prove SSM mode today. At the beginning of production, it is necessary to prove:
    1. Resistance of the device against bad serial-parallel connection
    2. The device’s resistance to moisture
    3. Resistance of the device against falling to the ground.
    4. To draw attention to the general conditions of operation.

    Warm Regards J.Š.

    Dr Rossi,
    How is behaving the Ecat SSM under R&D ?

  • Dear Dr. Rossi
    Has the physical size of the Ecat change and is the basic size still going to be 100w or will you be producing a larger system for purchase? As always thankyou

  • Hugh Burlington

    @Jean Paul Renoir:
    Your suggestion to Andrea is the same I want to give him.
    Cheers

  • Roberto

    @Jean Paul Renoir:
    I agree with you and I have the impression that whatever Dr Rossi will do, there will be somebody that will say that’s better to do something else.
    I agree that Andrea must not lose time and just put on line the same Ecat SKLep in SSM modality featuring what you suggested
    Roberto

  • Jean Paul Renoir

    Dr Rossi,
    Don’t listen to the calls to change load to the Ecat SSM that you will use to make the live streaming.
    An Ecat that keeps turned on a light like the one we are seeing in the streaming on course is perfectly convincing.
    The complete system must be weighted, so that we can compare the weight with the best possible battery in commerce with the same weight, to understand how many hours the battery could resist.
    We must see clearly that the Ecat SSM is not connected with any cable, with a top and a front view, and seats upon a plexiglas table completely translucent, exactly as we can see in the streaming on course.
    Just do this and do not lose time to find further complications.
    Best

    Corinne:
    Thank you for your support to the work of our team and for the suggestion,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Corinne

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    If we will see the same Ecat SKLep we can see not live-streamed here
    http://www.ecat.com
    but in SSM, without any connection to any power source, with a certified scale that will show us the weight of it all included, so we can be sure that a battery with the same weight could not resist more than several days, that would be a historic moment for the planet and mankind.
    Thank you for all your efforts to reach this .
    May this year bring us the “New Fire”
    Best
    Corinne

    Dear Dr Rossi

    I look forward to seeing the 24/7 Live stream of the MiniSKLep SSM.

    I hope this new demonstration will allow you to reach the Million pre-orders so you can start production and start delivering your SkLeps.

    If I can, I would like to give you a suggestion for MiniSKLep SSM Streaming 24/7. Make sure that the LED lamp is powered at a voltage close to the nominal value and that it consumes just under 10W and therefore produces a very strong light.

    In this way, being the MiniSkLep SSM a completely isolated system, after a very short time the whole world will be able to convince itself that the MiniSkLep SSM is the “energetic singularity” we’ve all been waiting for!!

    1) May I hope that you follow my important advice?

    Sure of your imminent “Global Success”, I wish you and your team an “Energetic” 2023.

    Regards Maico

  • Mez

    Dr Rossi
    On ecat.com website it says “E-Cat products will be delivered only if Leonardo Corporation collects orders for at least 1,000,000 (one million) SKLep units (10 MiniSKLelps account for 1 SKLep unit)”

    Does this mean if only (100W) SKLEPs are ordered, as example, then minimum target would be 1 million pre-orders?

    And if only (10W) miniSKleps are ordered, as example, then minimum target would be 10 million pre-orders?

    So actual minimum pre-order target will be somewhere between 1 million and 10 million, depending on the proportion between SKLEP orders and miniSKLep orders?

    Have I calculated correct?

    Warm regards and Happy New Year
