Tri Alpha Energy Investing in Andrea Rossi’s LENR Technology? [Rossi: No]

I received this post from Joel Robinson, and I thank him for pointing out the source of the rumor that Andrea Rossi had sold his technology to Tri Alpha Energy. I emailed Rossi about this and he said it was not true. It was in response to this rumor that he posted the following on the Journal of Nuclear Physics:

“It is totally false. I will never sell Leonardo Corporation, because I think it has a great future. Obviously we are not sure that the tests on course will have a positive output, but I trust in it. I strongly hope we are making a great company, with a great intellectual property, a great and advanced manufacturing concern, jobs and a great future and I will never leave this ship. If she will sink, I will sink with her”.

I recently discovered a tidbit of information in a blog post written by Graham Templeton on October 14, 2015 at 2:11 pm on Extreme Tech’s website titled “Tech entrepreneurs are investing in fusion — do they know something we don’t?” In the article he wrote this: “Tri Alpha Energy, which recently acquired a purported “cold fusion” tech from controversial Italian inventor Andrea Rossi. Is that the ticket? Maybe.”

I’ve done a search and have found nothing to back up this comment and it is the first mention of any other U.S. company besides Industrial Heat investing ing Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat Technology. This is a question I’d like to pose to Mr. Rossi himself to answer.

Here is the link to the article:

  • And so it begins.
    the first soft pressure on the treadle.
    That starts the spin.

    • Ophelia Rump

      Hot Fusion, Cold Fusion, Con Fusion.

      • Bernie Koppenhofer

        Ohoooooooo Ophelia (:

        • psi2u2

          Very well played all around.

      • Con Fusion about Hot Fusion leaves Cold Fusion.

      • GreenWin

        A profusion of fusions.

      • HS61AF91

        some like it hot, some like it cold, and the good doctor is not to be sold.

      • hempenearth

        My wife reckons I have a fusion delusion 🙁

    My conjecture: typo. Industrial Heat is mentioned further up in the article. I think Mr. Templeton probably meant to refer to Industrial Heat’s acquisition of licensing rights. But if it really is Tri Alpha, then that would be a remarkable pivot given that the hot fusion community has been particularly hostile toward the cold fusion community for well over 25 years.

    • There was an article about tycoons investing in fusion, with a “last but not least ” on Darden and LENR… Probably a mixing or typo.
