nextme, a popular Italian science mag had this to say (through the googlator) about the 1MW test:
The E-Cat could soon become synonymous with energy revolution, at least according to its inventors, Sergio Focardi and Andrea Rossi…
…there are many doubts….
But who would benefit? At present, only private companies. And there would be a potential buyer who on 28 October has been a test, performed strictly behind closed doors, near Bologna. The first customer may be the genius Domenico Fioravanti.
But how was the test? It seems that the experiment is successful, convincing the buyer, although there was a technical problem that probably forced the team Focardi and Rossi to run the E-Cat in the middle regime. He also assured Daniele Passerini, the only blogger allowed to attend.
But how much energy was produced during the 5 hours of testing? 2.635 kWh for an average power of about 470 KWB. Not bad, but we need to go cautious. It would be really good news to know that there is a way to produce energy after oil. But before I praise or reject cold fusion, you must know its operation in detail. And when it does not seem possible, and that’s what, to some extent, increases the doubts of scientists and experts. Because if that was really discovered what we call the miracle of energy, it would be a sacrilege to keep it “hidden”. But if not, would prove to be a big hoax….
Given that nextme is a science magazine, the balance between scepticism and cautious hope is well drawn. At least they do not dissmiss the subject out of hand.
