Andrea Rossi has just made a significant statement on his JONP site which, if it all comes to pass, would put Leonardo Corporation firmly at the forefront of the LENR movement, and in position to make a major impact on the world energy picture.
A reader asks: “As soon as you’ll deliver a 10Kw thermal + 3Kw electric (that sould be 20Kw thermal) unit at 10K€ with 100€ per recharge I’ll rush for it.
What do you think of this price point?”
The price will be enough low to forbid any competition. At that point the reverse engineering will be a hobby, not a source of competition, so that everything will become easier. This is the battle we won during these days: we made a titanic step forward, derived from a lucky idea and from the huge possibilities our new Partners have opened to us. The price will be much lower than you said, but we will declare the price when we will be ready: remember, if I say one thing, I have to do it. Anyway: the first version will produce hot water and heating, but it will be able to be retrofitted with the electric power generation when we will be ready also with it.
A number of statements stand out in this post:
“The price will be low enough to forbid any competition.” How low would that need to be? To prevent competition, either through building a similar technology, or through reverse engineering an E-Cat, Leonardo would have to price products so low that no one would bother trying to compete, because it would not make business sense to do so.
“This is the battle we won during these days: we made a titanic step forward.” Past tense — apparently the breakthrough has already already been achieved.
“Derived form a lucky idea and from the huge possibilities our new Partners have opened to us.” He doesn’t identify the partners, but Rossi has already publicly praised the contributions of National Instruments, saying how they have been been able to teach things that will allow him to ‘fish for life.’ He has also said that Domenico Fioravanti, the consultant sent by the mystery Customer to test the first 1 MW plant, has been working with him on the production of electricity. Perhaps there are more partners involved at this time
“The price will be much lower than you said.” Much lower, then, than a 20Kw thermal unit at 10K€ with 100€ per recharge. How much lower than this? He won’t say.
There will no doubt be people who will be skeptical of statements like this; Rossi provides no evidence to support any of these claims, so those who are inclined to believe him do so on the basis of trust. This is a very bold statement — what if he is right?
