  • Steven Nicholes Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    My design proposes to employ three 100W SKLep units connected in series driving an Enphase microinverter to which the grid power is tied to the microinverter.

    Will a battery be required when:

    a. The grid power is first applied to the microinverter?

    b. The grid power consumption significantly changes?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Roy:
    Yes, unless when we call the client for the delivery he confirms that prefers thegrid bound version,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    @Italo R.
    It seems to me that Dr Rossi explained many times why he must stand with his strategy.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Did I understand well that pre-orders of the Ecat SKLep will be turned by default into euivalent pre-orders of the Ecat SSM ?

  • Lars Olov

    Dear Andrea,
    If I can lease the e-cat I could save a lot of money every month and I would like to lease the amount that cover all my consumed power

  • Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    There is certainly something left unsaid or that I am unaware of. I apologize for allowing myself to make the following considerations.
    I can’t explain the following:

    1) – The Ecat is for sale because it works, it is reliable, and has been tested. It could solve or alleviate the world’s major energy shortage crises, including many wars that cause loss, destruction and immense pain to humanity.

    2) – I understand and justify the necessary need for a minimum amount of pre-orders for 1 million units, for the reasons already explained by you numerous times.

    3) – The number of pre-orders is still far (very far?) from 1 million, and the months go by inexorably.

    4) – I have the impression that the speed of increase in the number of pre-orders is very low (maybe even negative at times).

    5) – The Ecat is not being marketed. Its existence is known to only a limited number of people passionate about the topic. And all of these people have already made their pre-orders.

    6) – If the Ecat were adequately marketed, I am convinced that the number of pre-orders would greatly exceed one million units and much more in very short times.

    7) – You know very well that this invention would earn you the Nobel Prize in Physics.

    My question is: Why is it not being marketed?

    Best Regards,
    Italo R.

  • Terry (Capt T)

    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you for your reply to my two questions.  Very good news that any 2024 pre-orders we submit will also count toward your million units so hopefully you can start production sooner!

    For further clarification about the 16) 100W Ecats (stacked in series) if it will give me enough watts to power a 1500W water heater element for warming water (>140F) in our extra (lower) 300 Liters (79 Gallon) solar tank to preheat the water for our in-floor heating system so that our gas boiler won’t need to kick in.

    For the past 7 WI winters our (500sq ft) in-floor heating system for our addition uses about 200gal of propane per year.  We have another 1000sq ft in-floor system in our basement that I believe could heat the rest of our home & would burn est 400-500 gal of propane. 

    1. How many of your 100W Ecat SSM would you est it would take to keep our lower 300 liter solar heat exchanger tank at 140F if we burn 700 gal of propane from Oct-Mar?

    I was guessing 16 units would be enough to keep a 1500w heating element running 24/7 when needed & an auto off switch when water temp reaches 140F. 

    Everything else in our home is heated with an elect heat pump & the solar for our hot water in the summer. 
    If our average electricity bill is 1,009 kWh of electricity per month, and 12,108 kWh over the course of the year…

    2.  How many 100w Ecat should we order to have enough power to store in batteries during high peak use for a typical home using 12,000 kwh per year?

    100w X 24hr X 365 /1000 = 876kw 

    I was estimating 15 units would be about right and add more if needed.

    If so I’ll keep my order at 16 for 2023 & pre-order additional 15 for delivery in 2024. 

    After your reply I will adjust my online order.

    Thanks!

    Dear Andrea, have you already set the start date for the SSM streaming?

  • Heinz Sause

    hello dr Rossi ,
    The sale of emergency generators is currently increasing significantly.
    My suggestion would be to approach the manufacturers of these units and make the e-cat technology known there.
    My tip to Terr (Capt T) to watch the development of heat storage with the support of the EU here http://www.createproject.eu/

    I wish everyone a good efficiency!
    Greetings at the end
    Heinz Sause

  • Gavino Mamia

    Dr. Rossi the expectation for the live streaming for the Ecat SSM is growing dramatically and consequently also the anxiety :-((((

  • Andrea Rossi

    Terry (Capt T):
    1. It depends on many factors, among which the timespan you want to reach the due temperature within, the insulation system, etc.
    2. yes

    Dear Andrea,

    I’ve been a big fan for decades & I agree with Mr Censorio..

    2023-02-11 14:11 Giuseppe Censorio

    “allow me to make some considerations,
    many of us here who have pre-ordered only a few Ecats, once received and verified their functionality in a few days, i repeat days, we will all immediately place larger orders and we will also have them done by our family and friends, certainly millions.”

    In my case I have on order 16 100W Ecat SKLep SSM (probably DC version) to store excess energy into battery(s). 

    1. First will these Ecats (stacked in series) give me enough watts to power a 1500W water heater element for warming water (>140F) in our extra (lower) 300 Liters (79 Gallon) solar tank to preheat the water for our in-floor heating system so that our gas boiler won’t need to kick in?

    Currently we have 25 solar vacuum tube which in SW WI latitudes isn’t enough to raise our main (upper) solar tank to 120F (in winter) so basically we just circulate the fluid to keep the glycol fluid from freezing in winter months (Dec-Feb). In summer months (on sunny days) the solar tubes usually heats up our upper tank to 140s. While on vacation, away from home if this tank temp exceeds 150F a pump kicks in to divert the hot water to our lower bigger storage tank that I’ve been planning to use (since 2015) with your Ecat to preheat our in-
    floor fluid & for our hot water when it comes to market.

    In our case if we have good results we will most likely order 15 more of the 100W SSM units (to sell back any excess power to the elect company) but we will probably want to wait until after 1 winter of use to verify & record any savings. Like Mr Censorio I’m sure our friends & family will place orders once any doubt is put to rest but by then they may need to wait for years before orders are ready to ship.

    2. IF those of us with early orders were willing to place a second pre-order to be delivered in 2024 would those orders count toward the million pre-orders you need before you start production?

    Thanks for your dedication & replies!

  • Steven Nicholes Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    On the 100W SKLep unit, is there a connector for the output power or are wires provided or electrical contacts (screw or solder) provided?

  • Steven Nicholes Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    On the 100W SKLep SSM configuration, what are the mounting parameters? Specifically, does the SKLep 100W unit have threaded mounting holes on one (or more) side(s) that allow it to be secured to a plate? If so, thread size and allowed penetration depth? Example: M-3 x 5mm.

  • Rupert

    Dr Rossi,
    did you receive pre-orders for 1 MW power Ecar SKLep SSM ?

  • Joachim

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    will there be an online form to change my pre-order (1KW) to ecat SSM 230V?
    Or will you change all pre-orders automatically to the SSM-version?
    Best regards
    Joachim

  • Joanne

    Hi Andrea, not related to the Ecat at all: have you got the anticovid vaccination ? Did you have any negative consequence ?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Udo:
    The sole way to make a pre-order is to go to
    http://www.ecatorders.com
    or
    http://www.ecat.com
    then go to the pre-order form, fill it up, read carefully all the conditions, sign and date it and send it back.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Udo

    Dr Rossi,
    How can I make a pre-order for the Ecat SKLep SSM ?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Steven Nicholes Karels:
    a. just assemblings of miniSKLeps SSM
    b. yes
    c. yes
    You can change your pre-orders when you want, as you want, all the times you want before we deliver.
    Warm Regards,

  • Andrea Rossi

    Giuseppe Censorio,
    Thank you for your opinion.
    I think I already explained the issue,

  • Andrea Rossi

    Manuel Cilia:
    The efficiency of the SSM is difficult to overcome,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Dear Dr. Rossi
    How much of the possible energy are you converting to electricity from the theoretical potential limit of the Ecat? In future designs of the Ecat do you see better conversion efficiencies? The current design is perfect but I know you never sit still.

  • Giuseppe Censorio

    Dear Andrea,
    allow me to make some considerations,
    many of us here who have pre-ordered only a few Ecats, once received and verified their functionality in a few days, i repeat days, we will all immediately place larger orders and we will also have them done by our family and friends, certainly millions.
    So, but it’s just my opinion, if you are sure you have a working and solid enough product, the million orders is not a problem, indeed it is a problem to have many millions of pieces immediately available for sale.
    Thankyou and best regards, Giuseppe

  • Steven Nicholes Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi.

    a. In the past, you have mentioned developing a 1 kW output (or larger) SKLep. Can you please provide an update on that configuration?
    b. On the 100W SKLep SSM configuration, have you defined mounting parameters, hole size, threading, dimensions?
    c. Same configuration, can you clarify the electrical connection interface – wires, connectors?

    I am considering changing my order from 10W SKLep units to the equivalent number of 100W SKLep units. Can I still make the change?

  • Gloria

    Dr Rossi:
    Thank you for your answer to Maico: now it is clear, the Ecat SKLep SSM does not need a battery buffer if the 12 V DC output is turned into AC current by means of an inverter, while it needs a battery if direct current is used to feed 12 V inductive loads.
    Thank you for the explication,
    best

    Wilfried:
    Thank you for your insight; I am not able to answer your question,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Wilfried

    Dear Andrea,

    in order to siphon off zero-point energy with the ECAT, some kind of resonance would have to take place between the ECAT and zero-point energy. Since the zero-point energy does not dry up locally but “flows back”, this feedback effect on the zero-point energy should theoretically be measurable. Would it be worth considering bringing two ECATs into 100% synchronicity to find out whether the principle of the ECAT could be suitable for transmitting information? In my opinion, it could be possible that the information would move beyond the dimensions of our space and thus there could be a possibility of transmitting information at the speed of faster-than-light.
    Even if my description is certainly not expressed correctly in physical terms, could you imagine such a mode of operation?

    Best regards
    Wilfried

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    I still wonder why your investors just don’t want to start with the production.
    Your invention will be a clear sure-fire success! No question!
    The demand will be thousandfold higher than the production of Leonardo and maybe clone-producers.
    I know why you hesitate, but there is really no need to. The customers want the original, approved product anyways.
    The problem is just: The people do not believe in fairy tales, and your invention is in such a way fantastic.
    Best regards
    Friedrich

  • Andrea Rossi

    Maico:
    My answers to Jon Darrell were related to DC appliances, as implied by his question that asked if a battery as a buffer was still necessary, and a battery supplies only DC.
    If we talk of AC appliances instead, all the Ecat SKLep SSM system needs is an inverter, like any PV solar generator.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Wilma,
    Yes.
    Thank you for your support to the work of our Team,

  • Wilma

    Dear dr Rossi,
    Could the Ecat SKLeo SSM charge the EV batteries ?
    Thank you for your work,
    Wilma

  • Maico

    Dear Doctor Rossi
    I trust you can answer me as I don’t think I’m asking for anything that would make you reveal “confidential information”.

    To Jon Darrell’s questions you answered this:

    A) Have the problems with powering the electric motors already been overcome?
    [AR] Yes

    B) More specifically: Is a stack of E-Cat SKLep SSM with adequate power and an inverter technically capable of powering a typical electric motor of a typical refrigerator without the need for batteries as a buffer?
    [AR] No.

    This means that:

    1) Can the current Mini SKLep SSM safely charge batteries and power DC motors without problems?

    2) The current Mini SKLep SSM connected to an inverter can:

    2A) quietly feed resistive loads (electric oven)?

    2B) is it still unable to power complex household appliances equipped with electric motors (refrigerators, washing machines, dishwashers)?

    3) In order to correctly manage the “inductive” loads described in point 2B, is there a need for the Mini SKLep Grid connected to an inverter?

    I sincerely hope you can answer, I just want to understand if this is the reason why you answered that both Mini SKLep Grid and SSM are suitable to be used in “different scenarios”?

    thanks in advance for your reply

    Regards Maico

    P.S.
    Feel free to edit my post in the way that suits you best, in case I have written something that you don’t want published.
    But I’d like to know if my assumptions are correct

    Thanks Maico

    Dear Dr Rossi:
    Have you ever tested the E-Cat slep ssm with the battery charge, I mean that you use it for charging the battery. I think it is kind of good application for you products.
