We had a LONG thread dedicated to the 1MW E-Cat plant results thread, which we were finally able to put to bed when the test was announced to be completed on February 17th, 2016.
I hope now we can have a much shorter thread as we now wait for the results of the test. It’s a high-stakes time, and I would imagine quite high pressure for all involved, as E-Cat technology could prove to be revolutionary, and disruptive in many ways to the existing order of things throughout the world in terms of energy production.
UPDATE #6 (April 20th, 2016)
Andrea Rossi was asked today on the JONP how many pages long the ERV report is. Here is his response:
April 20, 2016 at 7:30 AM
1- the report has been written by the ERV accepted and paid both by IH and Leonardo Corp
2- the ERV is a nuclear engineer (doctorate obtained from the Unoversity of Bologna with 110/110 summa cum laude)
3- the ERV has experience of nuclear power plants and of certifications and validations; has worked with Bureau Veritas and CGS
4- the report is the synopsis of 12 600 000 data: to have an idea of what this means, printing these data on paper it would need 66 000 pages
The whole has been resumed in 26 pages of report. I hope my attorney will give me green light as soon as possible
While we wait for something official to be published, I guess we’ll have to take any scrap of information we can get. Here’s a Q&A from the JONP today:
Can you say, at least, if the COP measured in the Report is higher than 1.5 ?
April 3, 2016 at 10:40 PM
Yes, I can say that.
Even if the very lowest overall COP achieved was 1.51 (1.51 times more energy output than input over the course of a 352 day test), it would make this test a massive success if we compare it to any hot fusion test that has been carried out so far, where the best result been able to achieve more energy output than input for a fraction of a second.
Andrea Rossi has provided a bit of a profile of the ERV:
March 29, 2016 at 10:58 PM
Dr Andrea Rossi:
Can you give us the characteristics of the ERV ?
1- age AR: around 50- 55
2- education: AR: Doctorate in Nuclear Engineering
3- professional experience AR: Nuclear Power Plants
4- has also due experience in certification of plants? AR: yes
5- who paid his work and all his expenses ? AR: fifty-fifty Leonardo Corporation and Industrial Heat
Thank you if you can answer,
Andrea Rossi made this announcement on the Journal of Nuclear Physics Today:
March 29, 2016 at 1:44 PM
WE HAVE RECEIVED RIGHT NOW THE ERV’S REPORT WHICH HAS BEEN DELIVERED TO INDUSTRIAL HEAT AND TO MYSELF.
While I cannot release the report publicaly at this time, I can state that I am very pleased with the results.
I hope that Industrial Heat and I will be able to release the report publicaly in the near future.
May God help us for the hard work waiting for us all.
Dr Andrea Rossi, CEO of Leonardo Corporation
We’ll only have to wait 10 days max according to Andrea Rossi on the JONP:
March 29, 2016 at 2:18 PM
If not a full release of the ERV report, how about a synopsis?
March 29, 2016 at 4:12 PM
Yes, I will publish it within a tenth of days, anyway.
UPDATE #2 (March 19, 2016)
This email came to me from Mats Lewan today, because I had pre-registered for the New Energy World Symposium:
– “The final decision to hold the symposium has not yet been taken—official results of the one-year test of a 1-MW heat plant based on the new energy technology have not yet been reported but are expected at the latest at mid-April.”
“About 220 individuals have pre-registered, among them several who asked if it could be extended into a two-day event. Therefore, plans are now being made for a two-day event on June 21-22, with additional speakers and more opportunities to network with other attendeees. However, there will still be an option to attend the first day only.”
I’m not sure where Mats is getting his information about when the official results are to be expected — I wonder if he has heard something.
UPDATE — Mats Lewan wrote below: “Rossi told me what he also wrote at JoNP, that the ERV had committed to deliver the report within two months, which would be mid-April since the test was concluded on February 17.”
UPDATE #1 (March 16, 2016)
Mats Lewan posted this on the LENR-Forum here:
“Ok, I can now confirm that Rossi will attend the New Energy World Symposium, not as a speaker but interviewed by me on stage. In connection to the symposium, at a separate event, he says he will have some important announcements to make. No date defined. The decision to hold the symposium, however, still depends on the result of the one-year 1MW test being released and positive. Plans are proceeding meanwhile and there are now more than 200 attendees pre-registered. I’m also considering making it a two-day event, June 21-22, with an option to attend one day only”
I’ll kick off the thread with an exchange on the Journal of Nuclear Physics between Peter Gluck and Andrea Rossi:
March 14, 2016 at 11:14 AM
Please think about the possibility to help the LENR World to celebrate the 27th anniversary of the field (March 23) with a decisive victory. You could do this by publication of the Executive Summary of the ERV Report or even better the balance energy bought vs energy sold made by the accountant of the Customer during the 350 days of the experiment as I have asked on my blog yesterday.
Wishing you a long triumphal technology march,
March 14, 2016 at 12:44 PM
Thank you for your kind suggestion, I will see what I can do with the agreement of all the involved parties.
I assume that “all the involved parties” would include Leonardo Corp., Industrial Heat, the customer who was using the energy from the 1MW plant, and the ERV (the independent expert responsible for validation). Rossi sounds quite positive to Peter’s suggestion here.
