I was under the impression that Andrea Rossi in his current research push was working towards making a self-sustaining E-Cat that was primarily a heater, but I have been corrected. Here is a Q&A from the Journal of Nuclear Physics yesterday.

At the moment, are you working towards a SSM E-Cat with the primary goal of generating heat, or the primary goal of generating electricity?
November 12, 2019 at 5:11 PM
Electricity, electricity, electricity. I am working on it with the Team. Today a very good day, important discovery.
In response to another question, Rossi gave a little more information:

In order to achieve electrical production, are you just adding special components or are you also redesigning the Ballerina to get easier electrical extraction?

We redisigned the Ballerina you saw in
. We threw away years of work, made an internal revolution, but it was necessary to arrive where we have to arrive. Courage has been necessary, because we decided not to sit down and enjoy the remarkable results obtained making heat, but I think we are very close and getting closer by the day to our objective. Spent much money, wasted much materials, but it was necessary to make epoche’ on what had been done to arrive where we have to arrive. The pulse has been generated by our theoretical evolution or, better, revolution initiated with
So it seems that Rossi has decided that the place feel that he “has to arrive” at is a self-sustaining electricity generator which sounds like a more “impossible invention” than the heater. However, as impossible it may sound, based on all I have learned about him over the years I think he will give it his very best shot to achieve his goal, and he might actually succeed.
