Here’s an interesting exchange on the Journal of Nuclear Physics regarding the theory behind the excess energy produced by the E-Cat. Since Andrea Rossi has now rejected the idea that the E-Cat is a LENR device, he has other ideas.

How does your theoretical hypothesis on
to explain the appearence of anomalous energy, if you exclude the LENR ?

During our experiments we found the formation of charge clusters that have a density that cannot be easily explained inside the usual paradigms. To understand this phenomenon it is essential to overcome the paradigm according to which elementary particles are massive point-like objects, accepting instead the concept of a pure electromagnetic origin of the matter.
Not to mention the fact that from a point-like model of the electron would derive an infinite electric field.
The formation of clusters of electrons in phase causes a lower entropy and the exploiting of the zero-point energy, with transfer of energy to the electrons not in phase. We are working on the study of this mechanism and on an integration of the paper you cited, updating it with the discoveries we made in the last two years of experimentation.
Andrea Rossi has stated recently that he is continuing to work on the theoretical as well as the practical side of the E-Cat, and from this and other comments it sounds like an update to his theory paper is in the works.
