In an interview this past week, Andrea Rossi stated that the distribution to the public of household units is expected to begin “in Autumn of 2012,” adding that “We are in talks with Home Depot for the diffusion”.

“We have already started the sales of the industrial plants of 1MW, but now focusing on the household, we have to resolve the issue of certifications, and we are working on those, and we are organizing the production.

The target price will be between $1000-$1500 US for an E-Cat with a power between 10-20 kilowatts. Such an E-Cat is able to give the thermal energy and air conditioning for an average family house.

With this price, in a few months the E-Cat is paid back, and the expected life of an E-Cat is around 30 years.”

Since the start of 2011, PESN has been covering the emergence, testing, and commercialization of Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat (Energy Catalyzer) technology. As 2012 approaches, it is clear that nickel-hydrogen cold fusion technology is going to change the world, as the production of a million E-Cat home units is planned.

As far as I am concerned, the year 2011 proved that we do not only live in interesting times, but a truly exciting age in which game-changing technological breakthroughs may allow us to overcome the challenges facing our civilization. A number of technologies made this year exciting, but some stand out more than others.

Cold fusion has been making a comeback this year.

From being regarded as a largely dead science, cold fusion has grabbed the attention of mainstream media and the scientific community when high-profile demonstrations in Italy allegedly showed a cold fusion device generating 470 watts for five hours. The device, called the E-Cat or Energy Catalyzer was developed by Andrea Rossi, Italian inventor and entrepreneur and Sergio Focardi, a physicist at the University of Bologna. The E-Cat reportedly fuses nickel and hydrogen at low temperatures to release heat energy and shows that cold fusions isn’t as dead as many scientists seem to think.

Cold fusion or Low Energy Nuclear Reaction is the process by which energy is produced by nuclear fusion through electrolysis. Cold fusion is largely shunned by mainstream science because fusion only occurs at temperatures of millions of degrees. Rossi’s E-Cat uses a special catalyst to fuse hydrogen with nickel to produce enough heat to boil water. The steam produced is used to turn turbines that will generate electricity. It’s a system that if proven could lead to clean and cheap source of energy. Since this technology could bring about free energy, there are scientists who would brave ridicule to look into this area. Rossi’s method isn’t the only LENR device around. More competitors are looking to unleash cold fusion technology to the world.

Professore emerito del dipartimento di Fisica dell’Università di Bologna, ha contribuito alla costruzione della macchina E-Cat, macchina che produce energia elettrica con un processo fisico-chimico ancora sconosciuto.

Preside fino al 1990 della facoltà di scienze matematiche, fisiche e naturali dell’Alma Mater, ha poi diretto la sezione di Bologna dell’Istituto nazionale di fisica nucleare.
Ha concentrato i suoi studi scientifici sulla fusione fredda con reattori Nichel-Idrogeno ed ha collaborato con Andrea Rossi per la realizzazione dell’ E-Cat, un meccanismo per la fusione nucleare a freddo

 

The skeptical slant of the article does nothing but place doubt in the mind of the reader.  The E-cat has been repeatedly tested and verified by many physicists; including representatives of the Swedish Skeptics Society, Professor Emeritus Sergio Focardi of the university of Bologna and others.  While skepticism is necessary regarding such a profound discovery, there comes a point where the proof wins out over the armchair.  The E-cat is definitely NOT a hoax.  In fact, it is now commercially available.  Skeptics can buy one and test it all they want.  Clean energy has arrived!

True or false? Andrea Rossi says he has built a machine achieving 'cold fusion' but scientists question if it is possible

An Italian physicist claims he has managed to achieve ‘cold fusion’ – a procedure that could solve the world’s energy crisis by creating huge amounts of safe nuclear energy without dangerous radiation.

Andrea Rossi says his new machine fuses nickel and hydrogen at room temperature creating almost unlimited energy.

But there is one problem – many scientists claim it defies the very laws of physics. Several high-profile demonstrations of ‘cold fusion’ have been proven to be hoaxes in the past – and no one can adequately explain how or why it might work.

The United States Department of Energy the U.S. Patent Office say the process is impossible because physics rules out the possibility of room-temperature nuclear fusion.

But Rossi’s E-Cat machine can allegedly do it, and he says he proved it worked during tests at the University of Bologna last month.

‘With low energy, it’s possible to give a heater a certain amount of energy and to get from the same heater a superior amount of energy,’ he said.

‘The heat is initiated by electrical resistance. The reactors then produce another 479kWh of energy for another three to four hours without needing that initial electrical input — the low-level nuclear reaction continues on its own.

‘The test we made by the customer was to see if the process was working properly, and to control whether the energy was in an amount superior to the amount supplied to the system.

‘We have nothing to say, just to make plans that work properly and let those facts win against the scepticism.’

The idea of cold fusion was put forward by in the 1920s by Austrian scientists Friedrich Paneth and Kurt Peters.

But despite several people saying they have done it, it has been dismissed by most physicists.

Scientists say that Rossi’s claims must be taken from his lab and analysed before he can claim he has done it.

Energy consultant Jonathan Koomey said ‘[The E-Cat experiment] should be treated as a hoax until independent scientists are able to replicate these results,’

But Sterling Allan, CEO of the alternative energy news agency Pure Energy Systems, told FoxNews.com he attended Rossi’s demonstration and the E-Cat is self sustaining.

‘What Rossi demonstrated was 470 kilowatts of continuous output in self-sustain mode — meaning the output was enough to keep the thing running on its own,’ he said.

Hopefully, the age of making war for control of resources will soon be a thing of the past.
