Rossi: E-Cat Good Enough for Electricity Generation on Industrial Scale

Andrea Rossi had mentioned earlier this week on the Journal of Nuclear Physics that “our tech is mature to produce electricity only on industrial scale, using the Carnot cycle.”

I noted that each year coal power plants are retired from service, having completed their life-cycle, and are not being replaced by new coal plants largely because of environmental concerns, and I asked if the E-Cat could be used as a fuel to meet the energy demand as we lose more coal power plants. Rossi responded saying that they were not yet ready to produce E-Cats on an industrial scale, and I followed up with this:

Dear Andrea,

I understand you are not at mass production stage at this point. My question was to learn if you think [your] technology is developed enough to build power plants (control, stability, durability, sufficient temperature, etc.), once you have sufficient production capability.

Frank Acland:
The answer is “yes”.
Warm Regards,

If Rossi is planning to create electricity on an industrial scale he is going to need production facilities that will be able to make millions of E-Cats and control systems (the average coal plant in the US today produces around 500MW of electricity), so substantial funding will be required.
