Happy New Year to all ECW readers! I am sure that many people will realize thatJanuary 2021 marks ten years since Andrea Rossi and Sergio Focardi first introduced the E-Cat to the world in a famous press conference/demonstration held in Bologna.
Here we are 10 years later an a lot of water has passed under the bridge, with no commercial breakthrough, but a lot of interesting events and developments. Sadly, Professor Focardi passed away in 2012 without seeing his work with Rossi come to a public fruition. Andrea Rossi, however, continues his efforts to bring forward an E-Cat as a clean and efficient energy production technology.
Rossi has promised that this year he will make a public presentation of the electricity generating E-Cat SKL, which is claimed to be a much more advanced E-Cat, compared to the heater that was presented in January 2011.
After ten years, interest in Rossi and his technology has waxed and waned, largely depending on public events which have been rather few and far between. I am sure that many who were excited by the E-Cat’s first announcement have lost interest when nothing concrete has appeared that can be used by the public.
Still, I think there is still a core of enthusiasts who are still holding faith that the E-Cat, and/or other related technologies will eventually break out and make a major impact on the world. I have been patiently waiting for this to happen, and believe it will at some point. There are no guarantees, of course, and I think we need to keep on an even keel. I do hope that the public presentation will take place this year. Knowing Andrea Rossi, he will be working to the maximum of his capacity to make sure it is as perfect as he can get it before he lifts the curtain.
I plan to be here for the duration. Thanks to all readers for your continued interest and contributions here. I wish all a very happy New Year.
