Ecat Third Party Test Results

“Even by the most conservative assumptions as to the errors in the measurements, the result is still one order of magnitude greater than conventional energy sources.” — Report Abstract
“The results obtained indicate that energy was produced in decidedly higher quantities than what may be gained from any conventional source.” — Report Conclusion
With the results now published, what happens next?  How independent are the familiar names of the authors?  What is the margin of error?  Does this really prove anything?

Ten Things We Learned About the Ecat Today

In an audio interview today, Andrea Rossi answered questions on the Ecat, Hot Cat and Leonardo Corporation’s operations in LENR.
1). The military customer has run its Ecat for “many thousands of hours.”
2). The Leonardo Corporation guarantees a COP of 6.
3.) U.S. Partner plans to sell its heat to customer at temperatures of 102-130 C.
4). The Hot Cat works at very good stability at temperatures of 350 C.
5). The infamous Hot Cat photo has leaked under a NDA and was part of a controlled destructive test.
6). 1 gram of mass = 23,000 Megawatt hours. 1 gram of nickel = 23,000 Megawatt hours.
7). Rossi claims they are close to producing electricity.
8). An independent committee of international professors tested a Hot Cat in March for 120 straight hours and will be published in a peer-reviewed journal.
9). Research is primarily in Italy, but with a concentration of operations in the U.S. (Florida). Sweden is in the process of developing manufacturing capabilities as well.
10). There are 106 modules in one 1 Megawatt plant.

Another Look at the Hot Cat

Daniele Passerini has posted another candid pic of Andrea Rossi’s “Hot” Cat on his blog. Passerini claims this photograph was taken sometime last year in 2012 and features the red hot device being pushed to its upper limits.
We have also been treated to pictures of the shipping and testing of the 1 MW Ecat plant from Rossi’s Journal of Nuclear Physics. The pictures were taken on April 30 – May 01 when the unit was purportedly transported from Bologna to Ferrara, Italy. Andrea Rossi has stated that this unit has been purchased by an American customer.
