In the meeting with the Energy 2.0 Society last weekend (see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YSwrHNJEvo) Andrea Rossi was asked to provide a short description or definition of the E-Cat. I don’t recall him ever giving such a concise description before, so I thought it might be interesting to post what he said.
“The E-Cat is a fluid heater, and it is a device that heats a fluid that can be water, air, oil, whatever; and it allows to have a COP that is by orders of magnitude higher than the COP that is normally given by normal devices that have to heat fluid. And the COP is coefficient of performance, the ratio between the energy that is produced and the energy that is consumed.”
We have seen the term “fluid heater” before, since that is the title of his US Patent
