It’s not easy getting new details about the E-Cat X from Andrea Rossi, but I have tried again to get a little more information about this new version of the E-Cat. My question was sparked by a comment Rossi made on the Journal of Nuclear Physics in response to a question about whether E-Cat technology could be used to retrofit nuclear fission power stations.
If the E-Cat works, it makes heat for sure, other forms of energy probably. Such production can be integrated with any other source of omologous energy. The ways to make the integrations have to be studied specifically in the due situations. Theoretically, nothing is impossible with technology: it’s just matter of costs and convenience.
I responded by saying it I thought it was obvious that the E-Cat worked, or else he wouldn’t be still working on it after all these years, and also based on what Fulvio Fabiani had reported in his interview with Mats Lewan (my question was edited when it was posted on the JONP by AR to take out the reference to Mr. Fabiani), and I asked what other forms of energy the the E-Cat X was ‘probably’ producing, in addition to heat.

Let us complete the tests, then we’ll see. Light and electricity are not impossible, theoretically, but many more hours of tests are necessary before knowing if it works.
Maybe that gets us a tiny bit closer in understanding what is going on with the E-Cat X, but Rossi is giving very little information away these days.
On another topic. BroKeeper asked AR about the ‘modular’ concept of combining multiple ‘small’ 1 kW E-Cat X units for future development of the E-Cat.
In response to why smaller 1KW E-Cats you stated:
“It is because to control many small units orchestrated in parallel is easier than to control a big one. Besides, under the manufacturing point of view makes higher the economy scale.”
This may imply you have one-size-fits-all strategy whereby the 1KW E-Cats are not only singular modules but also modularized to concatenate one-to-another with a possible snap-together heat/electrical output ports with a ‘LEGO’-type scheme.
This could make it very cost affective and competitive in its manufacturing, assembly, installation, and maintenance for any domestic (and perhaps industrial) energy requirements. Is this possible?
Rossi simply responded, “Yes.”
