An interesting sliver of information has come from Andrea Rossi’s website regarding the demonstration of Rossi’s 1 MW Plant. A reader wrote, “May I suggest you to install some webcam and real time power meters of your plant to be shown on this site?” Rossi answered, “Yes, we will.”
Normally it is not particularly interesting to watch a power plant. It’s like looking at a battery; there’s not much to see — it’s the effect that is important. But if power meters in Rossi’s plant can demonstrate that there is considerably more power being produced than consumed it should attract a lot of attention. Watching something do what is considered impossible would be a fascinating spectacle.
No doubt there will be some who will not be convinced by power meters. It is possible to rig a meter to give a false reading, and it’s likely that those who are convinced that Rossi is a fraud will claim that the power meters have been tampered with. However, for those who are more open-minded about Rossi’s claims power meters clearly demonstrating a significant power gain could be very convincing, and motivate them to investigate further.
It’s interesting to see how things are shaping up in advance of the October demo.
