Defkalion Get's Ready

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

A new discussion has appeared on the Defkalion Forum, but is currently "locked" in preparation for the release of today's announcement.

The discussion is titled Discussion on Hyperion Specs


Defkalion Spokesman: "“I Know What He’s Got in the Reactor, I Know Everything."

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

According to this new NY Teknik article the University Of Siena ran a spectroscopy of Rossi's eCat at some point and consequently it revealed to them the contents of the reactor, presumably revealing the secret catalyst which enables the Nickel Hydrogen to fuse.

Excerpt of Ny Teknik’s conversation with Alexandros Xanthoulis (Defkalion Spokesman) August 5, 2011


"Let’s say I have the formula of Rossi, but I’m not saying it officially. My scientists found a way to make it. They need three months, but I’m not going to play game behind Rossi. I’m  not a cheater. We started together and if he has to be paid, he will. But his problem is scientifically solved by us.
Because we believe that his reactor cannot operate more than 24 hours.
When we requested 48 it was a problem. But my scientists found out the problems. I cannot reveal it right now. But the problem can be fixed by us. It’s very simple but they didn’t think about it. The same way more than a year ago when Rossi had never thought that his invention could create electricity. He had never thought about it until we told him."

"First of all, the first problem was with 48 hours, that’s for sure. And he had a huge fight with one of my scientists, Mr Hadjichristos, you’ve heard of him most probably, Yiannis, because we were insisting on 48 hours. But we know the problem; we didn’t tell him of course, we know the problem.
I know what he’s got in the reactor, I know everything. It was a spectroscopy (Greek: ‘fasmatoscopy’) made by the university of Siena. It was an equipment made by the University of Siena. It understands everything that’s inside the reactor. So we know the components."

Ny Teknik: Who did that?

"The University of Siena. They tried his reactor without him understanding what they did. They checked it and we know what’s in the reactor. So it’s a matter of two or three months that my scientists can reproduce that, but I’m not going to try it. I’m playing a fair game.

We solved the problem. The problems he’s got, we solved them. Because the problem is that he cannot spread the reaction all over the pipe, and all the heating is concentrated in the middle. So we found the solution."

Defkalion Announcement: May Include Testing / Certification by Independent Third Parties

Defkalion Green Technologies (DGT) will make a big announcement tomorrow (Wednesday) following many weeks of build up and anticipation.

Yesterday on their forum Defkalion posted:

"Dear all,
We will release the expected info pre-announced on November 14th 2011, on
Wednesday, November 30th 2011."
Thank you for your attention
Defkalion GT"

What to expect then?  Well, based on their own statements we can hazard a guess at:
Third party testing and certification of Hyperions underway, perhaps even positive results from a credible third party. More documentation including Final product specifications and probably some photos.
Initially, Defkalion had been working closely with Andrea Rossi on an ambitious commercial project to roll-out eCat fusors to the masses.  The plans included a factory working at full capacity producing 300,000 Hyperions (DGT Name For Their eCat Fusor), with plans for additional factories and research facilities in Greece.

That is until the relationship soured with Rossi citing financial issues as the cause of the breakdown in relations. Defkalion countered with accusations that Rossi did not "meet parameters such as the stable operation of the device for at least 48 hours".

Defkalion seem very confident launching their Hyperion technology, while Rossi has been adamant that Defkalion do not know the industrial secret in order to successfully manufacture and produce the reactor cores.  The industrial secret being the method of preparation and treatment of the powdered Nickel with an as yet undisclosed "secret" catalyst.

When you look at everything that has happened since January, Defkalion have sensibly bowed out of getting involved in name calling and the media circus that surrounds Rossi and have maintained quite a professional stance since they first came on the scene.

One of their first statements was very positive indeed and also seemed to imply that Rossi's was not the only technology they were working with when they said Defkalion has: "Enhanced technology and engineering on Rossi’s invention or similar inventions".

On October 10th they made the following statement:

The technological breakthrough of LENR (or CANR) is no longer speculation. It is a fact that will eventually change the world’s energy problems and its sociopolitical divides through cheap, clean and green energy. The world needs LENR as a new energy source. Although change will not happen over-night, LENR will help reduce CO2 emissions, lower the cost of energy, and provide longevity to our planet’s energy needs.

Defkalion sees its role with responsibility and asks the community at large to continue its support.

Defkalion has:
• Enhanced technology and engineering on Rossi’s invention or similar inventions
• Prepared business models for international expansion
• Established a strong network of global contacts
• Prepared legislative and certification procedures
• Ensured national, regional and international network in politics and business
• Prepared global financing

Defkalion has worked in close partnership with Andrea Rossi for a very long time to prepare a commercially viable and industrially applicable product using his invention. Defkalion invested a lot of money to evolve Rossi’s E-Cat lab prototype into its Hyperion product. Defkalion is now at the stage where its industrial prototype is ready for production.

More recently they produced this press release which features pictures of Hyperion prototypes and of the inside of their workshop.

Soon after they clarified some of the points made in the press release:

"We have to clarify that two of the pictures in our November 14th Press Release are from a low-end Hyperion single reactor pre-industrial version7 prototype. Several components on it (isolations, security components, anti-explosive protection, casing, functional I/O etc) have been deliberately omitted."

"Final products for mass production, that will be released following their prototypes certification, do have some minor differences in engineering/architecture and their assembly quality. A full specs sheet as well as product's basic design and their scheduled third party testing will be released as per our announcement of November 14th.
Thank you"

More recently an article with Defkalion's Alexander Xanthoulis in Greek publication Tovima shed more light on developments with Defkalion painting themselves as having a more stable and advanced product than Rossi. The article has been through Google translate, so as always some of the meaning is lost in translation.

“We not only continue our program and we are almost ready, with technology that precedes that of Rossi during a year. Specifically, within the next 15 days there will be announcements and initiated testing and certification by independent third parties. We will present the final product – not just a laboratory prototype – with all its subsystems to operate according to European safety standards. ”

“All the technology used in devices at the Hyperion KW and systems 1 to 5MW are our own design – different from those of Rossi” he replied. “As for the control, was already our own design and construction, and Mr. Rossi has signed acceptance certificate shows that it is ours. Even in the recent trial in October when he used some modules of our own design. However, the main and big difference in our device than that of Rossi is that our system is stable in performance, while that of Rossi or the last test failed to yield stable for more than five and a half hours. ”

So the rift between you was not due only to non-payment of first installment repayment, said Mr. Rossi?

“Not sure. We had finished the 15 million dollars of first dose, but Mr. Rossi did not sign the protocol of receipt, asking him to meet parameters such as the stable operation of the device for at least 48 hours. This was the real cause of the  interruption of cooperation, but not celebrated in the media because they want to continue a deleterious confrontation. Us us interested in real progress, and this success. The technology will present a few days the world will be entirely Greek and appreciate its contribution to the overthrow of what exists in the energy market. “

One rather positive outcome in all this is for neutrals is that despite the cavernous differences of opinion between all of the parties, Defkalion, Rossi and even Piantelli and Krivit - they all agree that the LENR phenomena is real.  This fact alone should give sleepless nights to even the most determined pseudosceptics.

It is possible that this announcement by Defkalion will be relatively tame, but  I don't expect that to be the case. There is a small, but nevertheless potential possibility that If Defkalion have progressed far enough to announce positive independent test results from a well-respected third party then this whole thing could go supernova overnight. Whether tomorrow is that day or many weeks away I have a strong feeling we ain't seen nothin yet.

A smattering of mainstream media exposure so far is nothing compared to the what is coming down the line.


Rossi: New NE USA eCat Customer Will Be Announced Publicly

The latest 1MW eCat Customer Is Happy To Go Public According To Cold Fusion Supremo Andrea Rossi

In a very promising announcement on Rossi's blog today we have something very positive to look forward to - the public disclosure of a North Eastern USA based company who have purchased one of Rossi's 1MW ecat plants.

  • Herb Gillis

    How long do you think it will be before there is a 1MW customer that is willing to talk about their experiences with the product and act as a reference? Having another customer out there who is willing to act as a reference could provide tremendous leverage. This would be far more valuable than any public test. It would silence the skeptics forever.

Dear Herb Gills:

Today we sold in the USA a 1 MW plant which will go to a normal Customer. This installation will be visitable by the qualified public. 

We wait to have completed the contractual procedure through the attorneys, then we will give communication. It will be in the North East of the USA, where I have been in these days.

Warm Regards

Previously we had heard that Rossi's trip to Massachusetts had not been fruitful, but it looks like this new customer was picked up there. So which large companies in NE USA would be interested in buying a 1MW fusion reactor? You decide.


Pick Up An eCat Brochure

Saturday, November 26, 2011

Bored with all the normal Christmas catalogues filled with iPods, iPads, DVD's and electrical items?  Then flick through a 1MW Cold Fusion brochure instead.

Produced by Hydrofusion - the same company responsible for   Not sure about the quotation from Dennis Bushnell. His comment that "this is capable of, by itself, completely changing geo-economics, geo-politics and solving climate and energy" was made in relation to the entire field of LENR (Low Energy Nuclear Reactions), not about the ecat in particular.

Anyway, put me down for half-a-dozen, in assorted colours.

Sven Kullander Talk: Rossi Is The Genuine Article

Friday, November 25, 2011

A Person Named Hampus Ericsson Has Made a Short, Informal Report of What Happened On The Unofficial Andrea Rossi Facebook Group Page:

The text contains grammatical and spelling errors, but is faithfully produced.

"I couldn't stay for all of it because I have a train to catch. The lecture was good. He started by going I've all different types of nuclear power. And then he talked about hot fusion and when that might be functional."

Then the good par came, he talked about all the different test that have been made of Rossi's ecat( basically read the Ny Teknik reports.

Then he talked about his own test, he said that it proved that heat was made but he couldn't say how, and he dont believe it's cold fusion because that impossible by today's science. But it could only be explained by cold fusion happening. He was very confused :).
He also said that Rossi is definitely not a fraud and that his friend Focardi and Levi is absolutely not frauds. They are his friends and he trust them. Rossi on the other had he said to be a black box.

He said that NASA had contacted him and asked about rossis ecat. So NASA was the first American customer that bailed. Apparently they wanted to know how it worked and Rossi wanted to keep the secret for himself.

Sven Kullander did not know who the final costumer is.

He also said that Rossi can be a little bit angry at people who don't trust him. That's why Sven have kept on Rossi god side and never told him that it don't work.

Sven said that he have asked Rossi if Uppsala university can independently test the device, with the demand that all information will be reveled to the public. If Rossi says no to this Uppsala will not test the device.

One of the most interesting thins was that Sven kullander sad that Focardi and Levi are both excellent professor that he believe a 100% in, Rossi on the other hand is a little bit of a black box. He said that there are two black boxes in this history, Rossi and he ecat.

He also said that his colleague Roland Peterson (think that was his name) is very positive on the ecat.

Sven also showed the test of the nickel fuel and the copper nickel that is left after the reaction. They will come out with a full article on this when all the testing is done. But the first test show copper in the waste.


Rossi In The US To Discuss eCat Production In Massachusetts

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

Andrea Rossi Is In Massachusetts To Meet With MIT (Massachusetts Institute Of Technology) and Govt Officials.

Andrea Rossi, inventor of the world's first commercially viable cold fusion technology - the eCat or (energy catalyzer), arrived at the Massachusetts State House on Tuesday morning for two days of meetings with government officials and representatives of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Massachusetts and Northeastern University.

State Senator for Massachusetts Bruce Tarr spoke on his blog about his hopes for Massachusetts to become a production centre for eCats and of the tremendous response from the world famous seats of learning such as MIT who are based there.

Speaking about Rossi, he said "Mr. Rossi’s reactor, if successfully proven and developed, has the potential
to change the way the world deals with energy, and I’m pleased that he’s willing to discuss basing its production in Massachusetts."

"The enormous potential of this technology demands that it be addressed by the best scientific minds in the world. Since Massachusetts is the home of some of the best colleges and universities in the world, it makes sense for that process to happen here.

Our institutions of higher learning have been tremendous in their response to this opportunity, and I look forward to working with them."

In April MIT's Peter Hagelstein offered to test the ecat but Rossi's response at that time was no.

"I thank anyway Prof. Peter Hagelstein for his attention. If the MIT is interested to our
product, they can buy a plant, and make all the validations they want, for themselves, and get
from it good heating too, during the hard Bostonian winters ( I lived there for some year, mamma mia, che freddo!)

Warm regards,

So what has changed Rossi's mind to make him travel all the way to the US. Could Rossi have reversed his decision and be considering letting MIT getting involved? Or perhaps Rossi is more interested in the potential commercial development opportunities that exist there.

*The State House is the centre of government for the state of Massachusetts. It is the state capitol and house of government of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts located in Boston in the neighborhood of Beacon Hill.

eCat EXCLUSIVE: UK's DECC To "Maintain A Watch On This Sector" (LENR)

Friday, November 18, 2011

The UK Department Of Energy And Climate Change (DECC) Confirms It Is Monitoring The Situation With Andrea Rossi's eCat Cold Fusion Technology.

A few weeks ago Free Energy Truth made an enqiry to the UK Minister Chris Huhne - Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change to ask if his dept had heard of Andrea Rossi's eCat. DECC is the UK equivalent of the US Dept Of Energy (DoE).  We thought that the dept charged with looking after the UK's energy needs should be aware of this potentially revolutionary new clean energy technology. We received a very encouraging reply on behalf of DECC's (CSA) Chief Scientific Advisor - David MacKay FRS.

"DECC is aware of this alleged power source: the DECC CSA, David MacKay FRS, has read some of the literature and has met Sven Kulander, who has reviewed an experiment and whose report is on the Defkalion website. The CSA's judgment is that it is appropriate for DECC to maintain a watch on this sector, with the key trigger for further action being the publication of the work in a reputable peer-refereed journal, including full details so that academic scientists can replicate the results."

Yours sincerely,  

Sandra Bembridge
DECC Correspondence Unit


So to summarise, the UK equivalent of the US Dept of Energy is now keeping an active interest on developments in the new field of LENR (Low Energy Nuclear Reactions). This is a major step forward for acceptance of these new clean energy technologies that could change our entire way of life. It proves that people in the mainstream are slowly coming round to the idea that we already have working, clean, cheap, energy solutions. LENR (Cold Fusion) could soon move rapidly from fringe concept to the world's number one clean, cheap energy solution.

David J MacKay

David John Cameron MacKay, FRS, (born April 22, 1967) is the professor of natural philosophy in the department of Physics at the University of Cambridge[5] and chief scientific adviser to the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC).[6] Before being appointed to the DECC, MacKay was most well known as author of the book Sustainable Energy — Without the Hot Air.

New Site Launched Is Based In Heart Of London Financial District

Thursday, November 17, 2011

In the last 24 hours what claims to be an "Official eCat" website was launched - their newsletter contains an address listed in the heart of London't financial district.  

Previously hosted full screen professionally edited videos conducted with many of the men closest to the technology including Focardi and Stremmenos.

Today the site looks reasonably professional, having had a makeover and now claims to be the first site in the world to be taking offical orders for Rossi's eCat technology. Upon subscribing to their newsletter, the confirmation email conatins the following address:

New Broad Street House
35 New Broad Street
London, EC2M 1NH

A quick Google reveals:

"The London New Broad Street Centre is based in the heart of the financial district close to Liverpool Street Station and Broadgate Circle. The centre is spread over six floors of a seven-storey office building with a decorative Victorian facade. Local businesses work in recruitment, IT, marketing and financial trading and the area is surrounded by London's world famous financial district. Recently refurbished, the interior of the building is a modern welcoming and airy space. The lower ground floor is dedicated to conferencing with space for up to 100 people in a theatre style auditorium. In addition there are 14 meeting rooms, capable of hosting between two and 100 delegates. Many of the offices overlook a large central atrium with a glass roof so that workers receive maximum natural light. The atrium is also used for special events and parties".

So the questions right now are:
Is recognised by Andrea Rossi as his "official" site? and if so, WHO exactly is behind the site?

Taking Orders

 The site claims to be taking non-binding advance orders for ecats on a first come first served basis. They say..

"You can get it right here, on this site, by filling out the inquiry form and specifying what type of product you are looking for. in Association with Andrea Rossi and Leonardo Corporation will then get back to you shortly regarding ECAT 1 MW Plant pre-orders and later in 2012 regarding ECAT Home pre-orders when enrollment plans for ECAT Home has been decided. The small ECAT Home unit will not be available in all countries in the beginning.
The first generation of products offers two choices:
  1. ECAT 1 MW Plant unit. (Available now, delivery time 3 months)
  2. ECAT Home unit ranging from 5-10kW. (Available in 2013)"

Is there anyone reading this who happens to be in London?  Do ACTYALLY reside in this building?  Perhaps there is a tennants directory or nameplate on the door?  If anyone has information / photographs please send to


We have official confirmation now that the site is endorsed by Andrea Rossi. On his blog he replied to a question on's owners.

Yes, it is the website of our North Europe commercial Branch.
Warm Regards,


The Great Pseudo Scam Sham Slam

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

We keep hearing the same thing from pseudosceptics about Rossi - "It's a scam!".

You will see the same breathless "It's a scam!" proclamation written in the comments section of almost every eCat article or blog, but EVERY SINGLE ONE of the very few people saying it have the same three  things in common - they never stop to explain how the "scam" is supposed to work, they appear have a clear establishment bias and to them Rossi is worthy of a much coveted place in Ocean's 11.

They seem desperate for everyone to believe them, when most of us are content to see how this all plays out, having never invested a single penny. Why is this? There is not one single individual I know of that has a single penny invested in Rossi's eCat yet the drooling pseudos would have us believe that Bernie Madoff has been re-incarnated and relocated to Italy and we're all in desperate need of their protection from the evil eCat.

Have you noticed that the pseudosceptics do something else that's very odd as well? They seem to manifest a bizarre and irrational concern for the financial well being of invisible investors whom they've never met and yet they are for some unexplainable reason, desperate to protect. Isn't that just the queerest behaviour? Especially when the private central banks are successfully pulling the biggest con in decades on hundreds of millions of people right now.  Are the sceptics trying to protect us from them?  Are the scep-ticks doing anything about the Indian call centres who call you weekly to pretend your computer has a virus and then quickly take your credit card details? So what's the obsession with Rossi all about then? Clearly they couldn't give a toss about protecting people's wallets - it's a smokescreen for another agenda and people need to get wise to this.

The pseudos describe themselves as sceptics or "critical thinkers", but what they forget is that to be a true critical thinker or sceptic involves being critical of your OWN hypothesis as well as others, otherwise we are ALL sceptics and the meaning of the term "sceptic" is rendered useless.

Their style of self-branding as "critical thinkers" also has an implicit declaration of superiority, by somehow implying that everyone else does not apply their own critical thinking processes.

Not once have the all seeing all knowing "critical thinkers" explained to us gullible mortals the explanations behind the accusations they throw at Rossi. I for one would like to know, so I don't get conned.

The definition of a scam is: a confidence game or other fraudulent scheme, especially for making a quick profit; swindle.

Whether the pseudosceptics like it or not, the fact remains that they no more know the truth than anyone else. If we are to belive that there is indeed proof of irregularities of one form or another then let's hear it! Let's have the hard evidence please.

Where are the double crossed investors?  Where are the irate scammed customers? Where are the gullible venture capitalists who've been taken for a ride? Nowhere to be seen. Why has it taken Rossi so long to cash in on this?  Wouldn't he have cashed out at the very peak of the preceedings after the 1MW demo? That's a bit odd isn't it, but the pseudos don't mention this.

Why are Defkalion still defending Rossi technology despite Rossi's clear contempt for them?  Are they in on it as well? Are we to assume that the various multinationals involved so far have not carried out due diligence?  Is it conceivable that Focardi, Bianchini, Rossi wife, the milkman, the tramp in the park and other individuals have been conned for years, or are the pseudos saying that THEY are all in on the long con as well?

Why conduct 5 or so public demos, every time risking the whole thing on some over-observant
nosey bastard spotting the deliberate mistake? Why would you say you are going to demo a 1MW plant and then only demo a half megawatt? Why not go the whole hog and say you done a full 1MW? These questions are avoided by the "critical thinkers".

Next time the pseudos say "scam", ask them to provide proof since they are all such experts on how the great con is supposed to work, or maybe get them to explain how something so complex and underhand can be run for such a long time in the presence of so many highly educated and competent people. Ask them for the same thing they demand from believers - ask for a scientific and well thought out reasoning and dimes to dollars they can't do it.

And what about all the bribes that Rossi is being accused of issuing?  By my reckoning he'd have spent more on bribes than he could ever expect to get back from the first 2 years sales of eCats.

If the pseudos are to be believed Rossi has also overnight become the world's most talented actor worthy of several Academy Awards, not to mention becoming a master at hiding giveaway body language in every one of his videos so far. 

If you believe the pseudos then that's quite a scam he's got going there, not to mention he's a helluva talented individual.

I don't pretend to know exactly what is going on with the whole eCat thing and how it will all turn out in the end, but one thing is for sure - at this precise moment in time the scam hypothesis being touted is speculative crapola based on nothing more than a dripping mixture of unsubstantiated horse manure, establishment fear, bias and paranoia.


Official National Instruments Response

Saturday, November 12, 2011

We withdrew the last post on National Instruments buying the 1MW plant due to it's   speculative nature.

Later this morning I rang National Instruments to get some clarification on their position and spoke to a lovely lady called Trisha - NI's Corporate PR Manager.

She has given me an official statement from NI's Vice President of Corporate Marketing and eBusiness.

"There are thousands of researchers and engineers in the world trying to solve alternative energy challenges and National Instruments provides tools to many of these scientists. One example is the Leonardo Corporation who intends to use NI tools for various applications. Specific details are still in development.  

The mission of National Instruments is to equip engineers and scientists with tools that accelerate productivity, innovation, and discovery. We apply this mission by working with customers across a variety of industries such as automotive, mobile devices, robotics as well as energy and physics. For example, we have been working closely with many research labs and physics institutions in the areas of control, measurement and diagnostics for nuclear fusion, particle accelerators, synchrotrons and telescopes.  You can find more information about the different projects we are involved in at"


Andrea Rossi has made a great choice in asking NI to help design and build the eCat control systems and this is YET ANOTHER VALIDATION that Rossi's eCat technology is the real thing.

The statement from NI is very reassuring.  It confirms that there is the beginnings of a positive relationship between one of the worlds best companies and Andrea Rossi's Leonardo Corporation.

We recieved this comment also from Arun Veeramani
"I am Arun Veeramani, an engineer with the Big Physics team at National Instruments. I just wanted to let everyone know that we did not buy a 1 MW fusion plant.

We believe in empowering thousands of engineers and scientists to solve the engineering grand challenges of today, one of which is energy. Leonardo Corporation intends to use our (NI) commercial-off-the-shelf tools and platforms for various applications. We are still in the process of working out the details.

In our 35 year history, our mission has been to give the right tools to scientist and engineers so that they can continue to innovate and discover. We continue to do this across a wide spectrum of industries such as mobile devices, automobile, semiconductor as well as energy and physics. From, you will notice that we have been working in the areas of measurement, diagnostics and control for particle accelerators, synchrotrons, nuclear fusion and telescopes."

Maybe we went about it the wrong way, but now at least we have an actual response from the company themselves and a firm denial. We are not sitting around debating the issue for weeks on end. With that in mind, it means we still have a BIG question.

Who DID buy the 1MW plant, and where is it?

Pseudosceptics Disappointed Again

There have been vitriolic outbursts by pseudosceptics in the past 24 hours on the VORTEX-l mailing list, mainly by one or two well-known debunkers.  These debunkers of anything that is considered non-mainstream were hoping that NI would deny that any relationship with Rossi existed.  It seems that they were wrong on this occasion and that this may be the start of a long and interesting relationship.

Pseudosceptics Use Steorn By Association To Attack

By-association attacks are commonly used by debunkers to try and discredit evidence.  This is where they use an unrelated subject matter to try and discredit the current topic under discussion.

Maybe you'd be surprised to know that four of the top eCat blogs right now are owned and operated by current Steorn SKDB members who's interest is not solely confined to magnet motors and solid state systems.  The pseudosceptics are very confused and upset right now , so are lashing out in every possible way to try and discredit this blog in particular using Steorn as an example of this.

Our position on Steorn remains constant.  Steorn have legitimate technologies that present anomalous and unexplainable results.  They are currently working on some very interesting projects and it is not the last you've heard of Steorn.


Something To Think About

How do you design control and monitoring systems for a new kind of fusion plant?  You think you could maybe do it via Skype?  What if you went out to see the plant a couple of times with a notebook and a digital SLR? 

Let's get with the program here folks.  Producing complex control and monitoring systems for a new kind of technology that no-one has ever studied before dictates that you have one in your possession. Not only have that but that you know EXACTLY how it works.  

So for NI or any other company to achieve this they are going to need one and they are going to have to take it to bits, test it in every conceivable way and understand how it behaves. How can you safely monitor and control something that you don't fully understand?

Is there anyone left that still thinks you don't need to have one in your possession one to produce a control systems for it?


Rossi: No More eCat Public Tests

Thursday, November 10, 2011

Andrea Rossi has confirmed that there will be no more public tests of his eCat technology.

He has of course said this before and then ended up doing more public tests, so there is every reason to believe that this situation will change.  With huge public interest in this and a recent media feeding frenzy it is hard to imagine no more public tests.

He said

"Dear UClaimExcessEnergy:

Again lecturing about tests !!! We receive 5 to 10 proposals per day to make tests around the world, most of them from competitors, of course. Please, read carefully:

1- we made all the tests we had to make
2- no more public tests will be made, the phase of public tests is over for us
3- we now are no more making test-prototypes, but industrial products
4- the tests of our E-Cats from now on will be made exclusively by our Customers
5- all our next work with Universities (Bologna, Uppsala) will not be public, but restricted and confidential Research and Development activity.

Warm Regards,

Andrea Rossi"


eCat: A Week In The Media Reviewed

Monday, November 7, 2011

Well, that was quite a week.

After over 10 months we've now seen the eCat break through into the mainstream awareness. In the past week alone, we've seen the eCat go from relative obscurity to being covered in some of the larger and well-known mainstream press. It's still not on the 6 o'clock news, but it's a start.

MSNBC wrote a brilliant article "Italian cold fusion machine passes another test".

Fox News were fairly unbalanced when they finally got their teeth into the story, but they still left themselves some wriggle room in the title of the story just in case it all goes pear shaped and they need to bail out -  "Cold Fusion Experiment: Major Success or Complex Hoax?".

The Daily Mail also got in on the act with surely the worst story of the lot.  A badly researched piece littered with innacuracies and sensationalism. They neglected to mention that many researchers DO BELIEVE that cold fusion / LENR, exists.  There was no reference to other international research showing excess heat in various experiments, nor did they actually speak to anyone. (Perhaps they should stick to alarmist health stories and the daily exercise routines of various b-list celebs.- Ed)
They also printed a photo claiming Rossi had said he has produced a pattern of triple track atoms, which is at the heart of the cold fusion theory, when Rossi has claimed nothing of the sort and the photograph has nothing to do with Rossi's claim.

CBS were more on target with a short but balanced article. They took the trouble to speak to an actual human being who knows something about LENR - MIT professor and cold fusion supremo, Peter Hagelstein.

"Are physicists generally, and DoE in particular, so sure that excess power in such experiments is impossible that the very large number of experimental results which show an excess heat effect clearly should continue to be ignored?" Hagelstein asked.

Other stories worthy of mention are the recent articles in Forbes and today,'s David Hambling wrote a good piece on what to expect as this story inevitably evolves.

We've heard some accounts of journalists being ridiculed by their more mainstream science aligned counterparts for writing about the eCat. This is a form of information supression and should be resisted at every turn. We applaud the journalists who've stuck to their guns in the face of intimidation.

Despite the mainstream starting to get involved, the well dug-in big establishment mouthpieces of TIME, Nature, New Scientist and The Economist still predictably refuse to budge on reporting anything. My prediction is that they will continue to ignore anything eCat well into the forseable future. More scoops for everyone else then I suppose, while THEY will be remembered for passing up the news story of the century.

We told last week of how AP News had attended the eCat 1MW demo and then subsequently refused to report on the story despite having the exclusive! We were Twittered to stop asking questions, sit tight and wait for Godot - unsurprisingly AP are still sitting on the their elbow and no story has since materialized.  In fact, it's actually quite ironic as they've now been scooped by everyone else despite being the only mainstream news agency present - (that's quite an achievement - is there an award for something so dumb?) Ed.

This is a very interesting period of time where you can see exactly which mainstream publications are the most controlled, who has an agenda to serve, and who has the most shareholders with conventional energy directorships on their board. Who's interests are served by keeping quiet about a new non-polluting clean energy technology and which rich white men would rather have a their gonads trapped in a rusty bicycle chain that allow the ecat onto the market.

The ecat is in direct competition with the very powerful multi TRILLION dollar energy industry players, many of whom have controlling interests and powerful friends in the media, so watch out for dirty tricks, false stories, personal attacks on Rossi's character and an entourage of disinformation goons descending on the comments sections of ecat articles.

It's an old phrase, but it's highly relevant in this game.

Follow the money.

Military eCat: Is the US Navy's SPAWAR Rossi's Customer?

Thursday, November 3, 2011

Rossi's first customer who is now the proud owner of their very own 1MW fusion reactor looks almost certainly military in origin, and could well be SPAWAR. Space And Naval Warfare Systems Command. Should we now call it the NavyCat?

All the clues were there:
  • The Need For Secrecy Strictly Dictated By The Customer
  • The Mysterious Colonel Domenico Fioravanti Who Supervised The Test.
  • The Viewing Restrictions Of Maximum Two People At A Time For 5 Minutes Only At The Test
Some clues from Rossi were there also:

Dear Max:
The Customer is of a category that usually maintains secret all they do. I do not know if and when they will want to make public statements and I am bound to a strict non disclosure agreement.

Warm Regards,

Andrea Rossi
"the person who leaded the test, an engineer of NATO ( a Colonel) who has 30 years of experience in thermopower plants and thermodynamical systems.

It is entirely possible that the Navy contracted the supervision of the tests out to a NATO Colonel on behalf of the US Navy. Additionally, it also fits that the customer was not concerned about recieving what is essentially a prototype product for further development.

The US Navy has a long history and association with cold fusion going back to the Pons and Fleischmann era, even studying cold fusion in secret for over a decade while mainstream science shrugged at it's very mention.

From the FOX News article:

Allan hinted on his blog that an unnamed “customer” of Rossi's device is a military organization that starts with an N. Rossi said this customer measured and verified the test -- and told that Paul Swanson with the U.S. Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems unit (SPAWAR) can vouch for the demonstration. spoke with a man at SPAWAR who identified himself as Swanson, and who said only that he was "not in a position to talk to the press." Several other sources within the Navy and the Pentagon either declined to comment or did not return messages.
