Rossi: 'Distributed Heat Will be the Start'

I asked Rossi about a topic he had brought up some weeks ago, to find out what his current thinking/plans were for district heating:

Dear Andrea,

A few weeks ago you said you thought the first commercial application for the industrial E-Cat plants would be in the field of centralized or district heating. Has this changed, or do you still feel this way, and if so are you already working in this area?

Thank you,
Frank Acland

Frank Acland:
Yes, the distributed heat will be the start. I will give the details when it will be in operation.
Warm Regards,

It’s interesting to me that he says that he won’t provide details until the system is in operation. It would be impressive if he could announce a project that was already underway. There’s no indication here when this might happen, but if he’s thinking for providing district heating for the coming winter (in the northern hemisphere) they would need to be getting everything in place right now. My guess is that the first operational system will probably be in Sweden (non IH territory) given the current lawsuit.
