To make a forecast is very difficult, and if I say a date I will be assailed if the date will not be respected. We are working very hard both for the certification and for the industrialization to be able to manufacture million pieces per year. We are working on this much harder than you can imagine.
I find it interesting that Rossi here mentions working on certification — and I think he is likely referring to certification of domestic units, since he has said that industrial certification has already been obtained. If certification is obtained for the domestic E-Cats, then IH’s strategy (according to Rossi) is to flood the market with low-cost units, to discourage reverse engineering.
As with many of Rossi’s comments about there’s plenty that is not clear, but if IH is working harder on these things than we can imagine, maybe they will get the breakthrough that will hasten the day when the E-Cat finally appears in the world.
UPDATE: Here’s a new comment from Andrea Rossi in response to a question I posted on the JONP about whether the ‘million pieces per year’ referred to industrial or domestic E-Cats:
Industrial plants are mature, and at the end of the R&D period of the plant supplied to the Customer of IH the expansion will be already on solid ground, if the final results will be positive ( I must remind you that the results could be also negative, and in this case things will be more difficult). The domestic E-Cats are the big issue we are working on for what concerns the future. We are testing a new design that is extremely interesting and, in parallel, our experts are working on the safety certification side. When I talk of million pieces I am talking of domestic apparatuses, of course. Somebody said: ” I have a dream…”. Me too.
