Andrea Rossi has been talking for some time about working hard on a version of the E-Cat that is able to generate electricity directly, instead of just producing heat. So far he has not claimed success with this project, but he has now stated that he has started a test which he says will give an indication whether this goal is actually feasible.
Here are a few quotes from the Journal of Nuclear Physics:

An extremely important test is on course.
At the end of next week I will have a clear idea of the level we reached.
Thank you for your attention to the work of our team,

This test, particularly important, will endure through all the next week. It will tell us if if it is really gonna work.
I think at the end of the next week we will have some ides of what is going on.
Hopes are many.

This particular test is made in California, because there we have the right technological support for this particular test.
I am sure this is going to be a very intense time for Rossi and his team. I think direct electricity production from the E-Cat really would be the Holy Grail for this technology, and as he has been saying lately, making a closed-loop E-Cat with infinite COP possible. As ever, this all has to be confirmed.
