Italian Science Magazine Mulls 1MW eCat

October 31, 2011

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.

    Hello, It stands to reason in an infinite universe with endless mysteries that if the nuclear force works at high temperatures it will work at low temperatures. There are forces masquerading as nuclear though unto themselves they are not nuclear. If your perception of the universe was energy based you would tend to view the world through this lens. It would enable you to accept the possibility that in the microscopic realm there are many possibilities yet to be discovered. From a conscious perspective I don’t know if LENR is possible.

      There’s been enough results from independent researchers over the past 22 years since P & F (and some very interesting results even earlier) that gives me enough confidence to say LENR happens. The next step isn’t a debate over whether LENR happens or not, it is how does this source of energy benefit mankind? It is both exciting and aggravating at the same time because that’s just the nature of the beast, but if you don’t believe LENR happens, there’s plenty of remedial information on the ‘net and there are several great books available through Amazon or Barnes & Noble. I suggest you become sufficiently knowledgeable that you’re a resource rather than a doubter.

    There where only temperatures measured at the pipes. This only means energy if we exactly know whats flowing through the pipes and how much.

    I would have expected to see flimmering hot air above the heat dissipators like that over an iron tin roof in sun. Remember, 470 kW of energy comes down at an area of 470 m^2 from sun in summer. The fenced containment of the heat dissipator was only 25 m^2 (estimated)
