I have recently posted about the challenge of Leonardo Corporation achieving the necessary million pre-orders for the E-Cat SKLed in order for production to begin. From comments Andrea Rossi has made on the Journal of Nuclear Physics, it appears that he may have jump-started the preorder process by making available the SKLed already to qualified customers for private testing.
Here are some Q&A’s on the topic:

Dear Dr Rossi,
Are potential clients with the due financial ground testing independently the Ecat SKLed, contingent with a memorandum of understanding for agreements to buy bulk quantities of SKLed units ?

You have told us that it could be possible for suitable entities to carry out private testing of the E-Cat SKLed prior to the November presentation. Have you made arrangements yet for this kind of testing with any groups?

Yes, contingently with licensing agreements that have been signed. By the way, I have been informed that fake licensees are offering our products: while our legal staff is dealing with the issue, please do never send money to anybody before asking us if the seller is authorized by us.
If anybody is offered an Ecat SKLed or other kinds of Ecat can email to
asking if the seller is authorized: otherwise, you risk to send money and receive either nothing, or a bogus thing.
He mentions here that licensing agreements have already been signed. It sounds to me like a situation where the customer agrees to place the pre-order on condition that the SKLed meets the claimed specifications published by Leonardo Corp. I think this may be the fastest route to reaching the million preorders. Rossi stated that he thinks it is premature to think about reaching the million mark before the November 25 presentation, but that “I am optimist within 2022, though”.
