In a bit of a bombshell moment, an apparent casual answer to a question about a photo on evworld, we learn from Andrea Rossi that advances in safety and control may lead to the 1MW plant being run in self-sustain mode. While any such advance would be an exciting development, it does not speak to the relevant realities of safety certificates and testing by the appropriate authorities. Unless this has been going on for some time and it is only the release of information that is new.
Question and answer follow:
Dear Andrea Rossi,
please have a look to the picture at the following link: http://www.evworld.com/article.cfm?storyid=2004
It is you, Stemmenos and Focardi conducing tests on the e-cat.
The set-up looks quite different from what we have seen on previous tests pictures, i’m refering specifically to those 4 red devices on the left.
There have been speculations on the internet that those devices may be e-cats in production form but i think they are just peristaltic pumps, am i right?
Can i ask you what kind of test where you performing when the picture was taken?
Thanks you in advance for you patience.

Dear Alessandro Casali:
This photo has been taken during the stress test of a sery of E-Cats a couple of weeks ago, together with the Greek Scientist Christos Stremmenos. They are some of the E-Cats that will compound the 1 MW plant. In that phase the E-Cats were working making steam WITHOUT energy input. This is why you see us so focused (me and Stremmenos). The 1 MW plant, probably will work mostly without energy input, I suppose, because we are resolving the safety issues connected.
The 4 red spots are pumps, the E-Cat clusters are hidden. The three characters in the photo are Prof. Sergio Focardi , Prof. Christos Stremmenos and me.
