Defkalion Congratulates Rossi

Monday, October 31, 2011

Defkalion have congratulated Andrea Rossi on his recent accomplishment with the eCat test in Bologna.  Their comment is not yet published on Rossi's blog, but they've made note of the fact on their own forum.

In other news, the 1MW plant has supposedly been picked up and taken away by the customer.  Rossi meanwhile claims he has already sold the next one (which he is currently building).  No rest for the wicked eh?

Still no sign of the AP story, which looks like it will never appear now.


eCat Censorship: AP News Report Killed Off

The Associated Press have been sitting on the Andrea Rossi World Exclusive for 4 days now. If you ever wondered if your media was controlled, then surely you have your answer now.

In fact, other news coverage live from the event was apparently curtailed to give AP their supposed "exclusive". You need to get angry about this and start holding those people to account, because this is Chinese style information censoring in it's purest form.

On Friday, an event that could possibly change the course of human history occurred, but unless you are one of a small contingent, you would be forgiven for knowing absolutely nothing about it. A 1MW cold fusion reactor designed and built by Italian Andrea Rossi was successfully tested in Bologna, Italy. For over 5 hours it self-sustained producing 470Kwh / p/h with no input power. If this is not worthy of a news story, then I don't know what it.

The old Pons And Fleischmann Argument

Blaming the previous history of Pons and Fleischmann for the lack of news coverage, and that somehow the media are reluctant to look stupid, is a tired and limp argument that is consistently regurgitated by people who refuse to wake up to the truth that they live in an information prison.  It's a convenient excuse, dragged out by mainstream apologists who refuse to believe what they know deep down.

On the day of Friday Oct 28th, AP (Associated Press) were flying in a reporter, supposedly from New York to cover the momentous event.  Even then, the word is that they had to have their arm twisted to even show up, but someone did turn up in the form of Peter Svensson, Technology Writer for the Associated Press, NY, who told Sterling Allan that "the reason the mainstream press hasn't been covering this is because Rossi has been very picky about who he lets in".

Rossi Blamed

Well, even if it were true that Rossi was being selective about which media he allowed to be present, the fact remains that AP WERE THERE, THEY DID GET IN and they DID get the "exclusive" on the night, so the only thing holding themselves back from publishing it NOW is what precisely?

American Reporter Gets The Brush Off From AP

Online newspaper "American Reporter" has been following the eCat story also.  Editor in Chief Joe Shea made enquiries to AP and was given the runaround also:

"This reporter, in fact, was warned by someone named Jerome on its national desk in the early hours of Saturday morning not to be too quick to believe an A.P. Reporter was there - although his name, Peter Svensson, and picture with other journalists appears on some of those sites tonight - and I was criticized for "driving A.P. coverage" of the event." - Joe Shea 

He went on..

"Since the E Cat is just as important as the invention of the radio, the Internet, the light bulb and the atom bomb, and since - as DOE spokesman Sean Murphy told reporters in 2009 about the device's fundamental element, hydrogen - so it can completely replace oil by 2050, this reporter thought he was doing the A.P. a favor when he called up their national desk and told them about it just 30 hours or so before the test."

"Associated Press Science Editor Kit Frieden ( didn't answer her phone when we called, but I'll will bet you dollars to donuts 1,500 calls from A.P. members would not get her to budge.

"There are no conspiracies, Joe" an A.P. editor in London told me. We sure wonder."

Resist The Supression

I strongly urge everyone reading this to make it your priority to share, discuss, talk and propagate the eCat story as far and as wide as is possible within your social networks.  Let the corporate media know that this won't go away..

I wouldn't blame anyone for writing to, emailing or faxing AP to ask (politely) why they have chosen to spike the story of the century and keep countless millions living in ignorance of a clean energy future. Is it any wonder that newspaper readership is down year on year and that more and more people are finding their news from alternative sources who don't have corporate agendas?

What has happened here is a form of free energy supression where hiding the truth is as simple as not telling the masses the news of revolutionary clean energy technology.

Wired Reports On Rossi Success

Sunday, October 30, 2011

Kudos must go to Wired journalist David Hambling for having backbone (when others flopped like limp jellyfish) to write a fair summary of the recent 1MW Cold Fusion test by Andrea Rossi.

"Against all the odds, Andrea Rossi's E-Cat cold fusion power plant passed its biggest test yesterday, producing an average of 470 kilowatts for more than five hours. (A technical glitch prevented it from achieving a megawatt as originally planned). The demonstration was monitored closely by engineers from Rossi's mysterious US customer, which was evidently satisfied and paid up.
The energy was output in the form of heat, measured by the quantity of water boiled off. The results are reported in NyTeknik and Pure Energy Systems News, who both had reporters present for the test. Associated Press also sent a correspondent who should be filing a story in the next few days (one suspects his editors might have some questions)."

Read the full story in Wired here.


eCat Self Sustained at Half A Megawatt With No Input For Over 5 Hours

Saturday, October 29, 2011

In yesterday's test of the 1MW eCat plant, after a period of time it Self-Sustained With No Input Power For Over 5 Hours While Producing an astonishing 470 Kwh/ph. 100 smaller eCatalyzers made up the whole plant which is housed inside a shipping container.

"According to the customer’s controller, Domenico Fioravanti, the plant released 2,635 kWh during five and a half hours of self sustained mode, which is equivalent to an average power of 479 kilowatts – just under half the promised power of one megawatt." NY Teknik

"There were some issues, so it couldn't be run at full power in self-looped mode, but what it did do was plenty impressive." - Sterling Allan, PESWIKI

On completion of the test. Small water leak is visible.


On completion of the test Rossi was asked if he thought it was a breakthrough:

"If I think the test of today is a breakthrough? I think yes, yes because today we have seen no more small 5 or 10 kw unit, but now we have overcame the difficulties connected with the basic engineering to make something to go in self sustaining mode to make 400 Kwh per hour."

"You can also think that hundreds of Billions of dollars have been spent to try to have a cop of 1,1 with nuclear fusion. Today we have made a theoretically endless CoP making 470 Kwh per hour of completely free energy, free of fuel and yes, I think this is a breakthrough. Of course this is the first step, but it is a very important first step."

The Customer Report

According to the report the test was met with approval from the customer and the 1MW plant will now be shipped to the customer. it will then undergo further tests
in order to develop the technology.

There is still no real indication who the customer is, but clearly marked at the top of the report and then subsequently scored out with a pen is the word "colonel" in front the controller's name Fioravanti. Rossi indicated that the customer belongs to one specific category of organisations, and the title Colonel could be an indication that the customer is military - although this is by no means confirmed.

There is speculation on the possible customer identity however. An observant person noticed that in the properties section of the attached Excel datasheet that was posted was the author's name: a large Bologna company called "Manutencoop Facility Management", however they may not be the actual customer, but just a company contracted to help out on the day.

Rossi has confirmed that the testing by Bologna University and Upssalla can now start
under an agreed research contract

eCat 1MW Test: Update Thread

Friday, October 28, 2011

 Updates on what's happening in Bologna.
Use #ecat to search for our Twitterings.

  • Not everything went well (the usual [leaking] gaskets, the self-sustaining reaction that was in danger of runaway, etc), but 470kWh (even if not 1 MWh) without input power (excluding that of water pumps) couldn't leave room for doubts.
  • PESNetwork PES Network, Inc.
    Q&A just finished; reading of results; 470 kW maintained continuously
    during self-sustain; customer satisfied; sale made; more later.
  • Thanks to Clanzer for the info - Update from Sterling around 1:30pm GMTI just got back from my turn. I was able to shoot a few pictures and take some video. The reason for the embargo on taking photos was personnel reasons. They don't want the engineers and testers to be shown, to keep them confidential. The company doing the testing does not wish to be known at this time. A quick comment from the AP writer who is here. The lack of coverage from the mainstream media is not due to lack of interest but from the lack of cooperation from Andrea Rossi. He has turned a lot of media away who have wanted to come in. The AP writer has gained Rossi's trust over time, and hence was invited to be here today.Rossi will be sending us all the data this evening.Wish I could say more, but it will have to wait. Great day so far.
  • Chevron and MIT just visited the blog.  To what do we owe this honour?
  • We just heard that they got served a buffet at the test.  Lot's of eating, but no real info yet. No news is good news etc
  • Daniele Passerini  Tweet: "AP has the exclusive of the day, a troupe of TG2 that was presented was sent away for this reason."  Yes, I don't know what this means either - gotta love Google Translate, isn't it marvelous! Reading between the lines it looks like AP has the exclusive.  AP is a newswire service, so it all depends WHO picks up the story? Could go either way, fingers crossed.
  • If your a pseudosceptic then tonight is a good night to avoid the internet. Poor things - you have to feel for them #ecat
    •  CBS New York just visited this blog - why don't you have a reporter there? Is there something more important happening today - Is Gaga having her legs waxed?
    • Ninth wave of the Mayan Calender ends today as Cold Fusion reactor begins. Coincidence? You decide.
    • Sterling Allan (Peskiki): "I'm here at the 1 MW test. They asked us not to report until after the test. Waiting my turn to go see."
    • Why does Krivit keep calling Rossi a promoter? Why not just come out and say "You know what guys, I just don't like him"? Strange.
    • Rossilivecat takes the effort out of wading through rossi's Blog. It tracks Rossi's comments in a bold orange colour.  Should probably say hello to my friend Eric at this moment as he is the programming expert behind the site.
    • Steven Krivit has been very calculated in his timing of his latest Rossi "hit-piece". His blogpost is entitled " Extraordinary Scams Require Extraordinary Claims.  Well, we might also say to that - "Extraordinary Accusations Require Extraordinary Proof".  He calls the Ecat an "electric tea-kettle" and then claims that Rossi pinched the tech from Francisco Piantelli. Krivit also pays homage to Piantelli because Piantelli prefers peer review by the old boys network to engineering and commercialization. What is it with establishment toadying? The Establishment has SUPRESSED these technologies for decades. Rossi is right. Build it and if it works then people will buy it.
    • Apparently AP (Associated Press) are flying a reporter in to cover the event, but where are FOX, CNBC, BBC, Reuters, NBC, CNN and all the rest of the major media?


    Let's Make History: eCat 1MW Fusion Test Starts Today

    Today in Bologna something very special will happen that could potentially touch the lives of everyone on the planet.

    The inside of the 1MW Plant - photo credit: Daniele Passerini
    Andre Rossi's 1MW eCat Plant will begin operation in a series of tests designed to prove the technology to the US based customer - and more importantly to the waiting world.  A successful test of the 1MW Energy Catalyzer should be enough to take us into a new era of cheap, clean energy generation, possibly triggering a positive economic tide to lift all ships.

    The only clue we have to the identity of the mystery customer who is in charge of the tests came from blogger Daniele Passerini yesterday when he said "it is a well-known and largest industrial group". Yesterday we speculated that it could be General Electric and duly sent off a press inquiry to them, however as of this date we have not recieved a reply. 

    Rossi confirmed on his blog that he is raring to go with a "We are  Ready!" proclamation. But this time Rossi will take more of a back seat during these tests.

    Rossi: "We Are Ready!"

    RockEye October 27th, 2011 
     Dear Mr. Rossi I just want to wish you good luck and go change the world tomorrow!! 

    October 27th, 2011 

    Dear RockEye: 

    Thank you: now it’s 4 p.m. of the 27th, and we are finishing the cosmetics of the plant. I think tomorrow we will make, with the help of God, a good job. My work, basically, is finished. Within one hour the Consultants of the Customer will arrive to start the check of all the parts of the plant and prepare all their stuff for the test of tomorrow. Until some hour ago I felt a strong pressure, now, at the eve of the battle, as usual, I am recovering all my coldness and calm. We are ready. Warm Regards, A.R. 

    Brad Arnold sums the mood up perfectly when he said:
    "I don’t think it is too grandiose to say the hopes and dreams of countless people alive now, and that are yet unborn, are on Rossi this week. The importance of this occasion can not be overstated.

    I pray the “customer” will quickly commercialize the e-cat “container” when it checks out. The sooner it is proven via the only certain way (i.e. successful commercialization), the sooner the R&D departments of countless corporations around the world will kick in and start integrating it to various applications. Cars, ships, desalination plants, home heaters, power plants, portable electrical generators, water heaters…the applications are endless and the world is waiting."

    The "Guessed" Guest List

    Representatives Of The US Based Customer
    Prof Sergio Focardi

    Craig Casserino (Ampenergo)
    Sterling Allan (Peswiki)
    Mats Lewan (NY Teknik)
    Raymond Zreich (Focus.IT)
    In addition to the people listed we are told that there will be "prominent scientific journalists" in attendance, so let your mind wander on that one for a bit. If the test goes to plan and the customer is happy, then over the next few weeks the ripples from this will spread out like a tsunami as people start to take notice.  It's hard to imagine how the media silence can be maintained on the back of unquestionable proof of a new clean primary energy waiting to be tapped.
    There is always the question of safety when you are dealing with super-heated steam, but Rossi has always maintained that the eCat has very good safety built in should anything go wrong.  But this is a slightly different proposition. 52 eCats running simultaneously inside a shipping container is a whole different ballgame.  Hopefully all will go well on the night regarding the safety of the participants.

    Live Webcam?

    We still do not have any indication if there will definitely be a live webcam feed of the test - email us at if you know differently and we'll put the link up for everyone to see.

    Hourly Updates On Rossi's Blog

    We are told there will be hourly updates of all the goings on over at Rossi's Blog. Where exactly, remains a mystery.
    Don't know about you, but I'm off to stock up on popcorn.


    eCat: Customer Is Large, Well Known Industrial Group

    Thursday, October 27, 2011

    Rossi Inside The 1MW Fusion Plant
    Yesterday there was a rumor doing the rounds  that Rossi's customer was in fact the US Navy. Today however, Daniele Passerini, the Italian blogger and close friend of Giuseppe Levi (who is normally clued into inside information) said the customer "is a well-known and large industrial group".

    "And finally we come to the E-Cat, in particular the first test plant of 1 MW.  Beyond the short time available to me to write, I have very good reasons at this time to keep a low profile and not talk about it on the blog, I'd rather not say more until October 29. Then try to make it up to an account by providing as much detail as possible, but as far as possible. I hope that by then there may be updates as well on the opening of the E-Cat experiments in Uppsala and University of Bologna.

    I confirm that there is a customer interested in buying the 1 MW if the test is successful: it is a well-known and largest industrial group (I gave my word not to say below). I confirm that the test set-up mode is "closed doors" have been requested by the customer."

    Passerini has since January, been a proven highly credible source of information because of his friendship with Giuseppe Levi and his close involvement with behind-the-scenes events in Bologna.  A well-known, large industrial group who could put their weight and financial muscle behind mainstream adoption of LENR could catapult the eCat from relative obscurity to the most talked about phenomena in living memory.

    It is extremely difficult to think of another prior development or invention in history that could bring such dramatic change in a short time to so many people. But with the promise of change and shifting economic and geopolitical power balances comes censorship from the networks of mainstream corporations that really run the planet.

    Reporting on the eCat is like fighting an information war and like any war the first casualty is always the truth.

    More Mainstream Media Censorship

    Yesterday, we also had some more concerning reports of mainstream censorship of the eCat and all the events in Bologna.Vaughan Granfield used our Open Blog to tell us the following:

    "I have recently been bloging the British  news paper called The Guardian about various possibilities and possible applications  of how the e/cat may help humanity industry and the environment .But i find that they are removeing all traces of any blog that even uses the words Andrea Rossi or E/cat except a few just to cover themselves. If any British bloggers dare, try the guardian and see how free we are."

    *Free Energy Truth has also separately contacted a handful of very high profile media figures and organizations for comment on the eCat and have received either no response, or no comment.

    Wikipedia Gatekeepers Continuing Their Own Brand Of Censorship

    "On October 6th 2011 an E-cat ran in a completely stable self sustained mode for over three hours. The power output was estimated to be between two and three kilowatts. Roland Pettersson, retired Associate Professor from the University of Uppsala, who witnessed it said "I'm convinced that this works, but there is still room for more measurements", was removed entirely. It's sourced to a reliable source so I see no need to delete it. - Liftarn

    "Quite right too - until we see the results of independent scientific investigations published in a reputable peer-reviewed journal, to describe such fluff as 'information' is a breach of Wikipedia policy. - AndyTheGrump

    So there you have it folks.  If information does not exist in a peer reviewed publication, then it does not exist, (According to Wikipedia), even when that information comes from a reputable source. The information the masses are getting to see by is being filtered, sanitized and cherry picked.  Perhaps the drooling pseudosceptics who police Wikipedia have part-time jobs manning the Chinese Firewall?

    I've got news for them. They will lose the information war.


    eCat: 10 Kg Of Nickel: That's Fuel For 6 Months Continuous Operation Of 1MW Reactor

    Wednesday, October 26, 2011

    Rossi has confirmed on his blog how much fuel the 1MW eCat should use in 6 months of continuous operation.

    Dear Andre Rossi,

    I am writing an article for Renewable Energy World to be published on the day your E-cat is accepted and I have one question. How much nickel and hydrogen will it take to generate one megawatt of heat continuously for six months?
    I have already published several articles on your amazing invention and really excited to finally be able to speak in certainties. Good wishes for sweet success.

    Tom Blakeslee President
    The Clearlight Foundation

    Dear Thomas Blakeslee:

    Energy-Storage Membrane Outstrips Existing Rechargeable Batteries and Supercapacitors

    Researchers from the NUS Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Initiative (NUSNNI) have developed the world's first energy-storage membrane, answering the need for cost-effective and environmentally friendly energy storage and delivery solutions.

    The research team, led by Principal Investigator Dr Xie Xian Ning, used a polystyrene-based polymer to deposit the soft, foldable membrane converted from organic waste which, when sandwiched between and charged by two graphite plates, can store charge at 0.2 farads per square centimetre. This capability was well above the typical upper limit of 1 microfarad per square centimetre for a standard capacitor. The cost involved in energy storage is also drastically reduced with this invention, from about US$7 to store each farad using existing technologies based on liquid electrolytes to about US$0.62 per farad.

    eCat: "Container Cat" Is Ready For Friday - Are You?

    Tuesday, October 25, 2011

    The big test coming up on Friday 28th is the absolute pinnacle of the eCat calender.  

    Since early in January we've all been following the twists and turns of a rollercoaster story that has been both sublime, ridiculous and above all very entertaining. On Friday "Container Cat" as I have called it, will either make the history books by producing a Megawatt of thermal energy or will blow up like an over-microwaved rice pudding.

    After a handful of tests some are utterly convinced and yet some are still holding out for independent testing.  It is true to say that the testing so far has lacked in-depth accuracy and scientific precision, but it is also apparent that something very odd and indeed special is happening when an eCat starts up.

    If it were not for the fact it's true, the real life events of Rossi's eCat adventure would surely be the makings of a good fictional novel.

    Secret Customer

    The latest development is the mystery surrounding the customer who wishes to buy Rossi's 1MW plant.  Rossi has not said so, but presumably the customer does not just want one plant, but the rights to commercialize and manufacture hundreds, maybe thousands of plants.

    The story so far from Rossi is that the customer is highly secretive and does not want their identity revealed to the public at large and that on the 28th the customers consultants and representatives will be there to make the required measurements required for proof that the ecat does exactly what it's supposed to - make enormous amounts of heat from an as yet unknown safe nuclear surface level reaction.

    That's the story anyway, but let's delve a little deeper.

    Why the secrecy?

    What are the possible motivations for all the secrecy here?  Well, the first and (in my opinion) most unlikely reason is that the customer just doesn't want the hassle and publicity of having a connection to such a seemingly unlikely technology that would perhaps dent their carefully crafted credibility and image.

    The most likely reason is that the company desperately wants to maintain a competitive market advantage and the only way to guarantee this is to show no apparent public interest in the ecat.

    This approach could give them a very financially rewarding head start on the single biggest market opportunity of the century.  Trillions of dollars await the successful market leader who will be the first to properly conquer the newly emerging LENR energy sector.

    Top TRENDS researcher Gerald Celente recently described the new wave of energy technologies that are poised to hit us as "The greatest investment opportunity of the 21rst century." Right now, Rossi's eCat is leading the field based on it's apparent market readiness. A beurocratic quicksand of safety certifications and approvals still stands in the way and must be negotiated before the proper adoption of this new primary energy source, but the rewards that await are utterly incalculable.

    It recently emerged that Rossi's now soured deal with "divorced" former business partner
    Defkalion Green Technologies was worth an astonishing 200 Million Euros in a single royalty payment. The on-sale of further plant licences (including blueprints and training) is confirmed by Defkalion as 40.5 Million Euros per 300,000 units produced. This would be ultimately dwarfed by the overall potential European eCat sales market, certain to be counted in the hundreds of Billions by year two and beyond.

    There is another possibility for the customer's apparent desire for secrecy which leaves a
    distinctly sour taste.  That is the possibility that the customer is of the military hardware variety and intends to use the eCat technology for combat / conflict operations.  It doesn't really need to be said that any army who can harness vast amounts of energy, which are highly portable and can be delivered into theatre operations quickly (in say, a shipping container) is a huge advantage.

    Can the secrecy be maintained?

    Although the customer does not want to be identified, it's representatives will be present to take measurements on Friday. However, they will not be alone.  Rossi has said that scientific journalists worthy of note will also be present along with a handful of other selected invitees.  Will those people be prevented from talking to the customer representatives?  Will balaclavas and voice morphing microphones be standard issue on the day? - I doubt it.

    And what of Defkalion in all this?

    Therein lies another crazy novel in itself.  Defkalion on one end with an apprently MORE market ready product and Rossi on the other claiming they haven't got a clue how to make an eCat reactor core?  Have Defkalion back engineered Rossi's eCat already? Are they bluffing? Or have they hooked up with LENR rival, Piantelli and have HIS technology at the heart of their Hyperion modules? It's a sticky mess of claims and counter claims and someone needs to clear it up.

    The Rossi story started off quite simply, but every day this tale has been slowly aquiring more and more complexity. Trying to follow it, now requires a 6 month apprenticeship and the patience of a saint whos just been on a "How to Be More Patient" training course.

    From secret customers, on / off partnerships, contradictory statements, to clowns, snakes, coffee machines and much argued over test results. On Friday, a successful run of "Container Cat" will hopefully put an end to the bickering.

    I think I need a double shot of steaming espresso, Italian of course.

    Wanna Buy A 1MW Fusion Reactor? - On Sale November

    If an X-Box or an iPhone 4S seems a little tame this Christmas, then why not get yourself off the grid forever with a cheeky little 1MW Fusion Reactor conveniently packaged inside a shipping container ready for delivery to the country of your choice.

    • Andrea Rossi
      Dear Marco:
      The 1 MW plants will be for sale starting November. We did not decide, yet, about the smaller units.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    if I understand:

    - Test of October 28 is not made public and will be conducted according to the protocol required by the customer but the results will be announced sworn by top scientists?

    - The plant will be tested on November 28 will be a prototype or a model ready for industrial applications?

    - It 'confirmed that the phase of commercialization of the devices will start in November or you will have to wait, even if the result is positive proof of 28.11, the result of the predicted R & D work of the universities of Bologna and Uppsala?

    - Potential customers, of course if you have adequate credentials, can refer only to the results of that test, or will provide additional information to evaluate the opportunity and convenience for any purchase?

    - There will be an official announcement to the market that will make the precise moment at which potential customers can make contact with you or your company (Leonard Corporation) or remains valid indication of the month of November 2011?


    Best regards and good work

    Guido Chiostri

    Dear Guido Chiostri:
    1- yes
    2- it’s ready for the market

    "Private" 1MW eCat Test Will Feature Live Webcam

    Yesterday we were told that the 1MW eCat test would be a private affair.  Selected invitees only and representatives of the customer who is stepping up to buy the 1MW reactor.  Today we find out that it won't be so private after all.  A webcam will broadcast live pictures from the test.  What exactly those pictures will feature is still not clear at this moment.

    October 19th, 2011 at 9:37 AM

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    On September 11th, regarding the 1 MW Plant demonstration, you confirmed that you will have a webcam and real-time power meters of your plant to be shown on this site.

    Is this still planned for?

    eCat 1MW Test Will Be Private

    Wednesday, October 19, 2011

    Today we learned that The 1MW eCat Reactor Will Not Be A Public Test Like October 6th Was.

    Instead, the test will be carried out privately for a small group of individuals. This group will be made up of consultants and representatives of the as yet unnamed Customer as well as "prominent scientific journalists".  The customer will be monitoring the progress and is ultimately interested in the report results on completion of the test.

    Andrea Rossi

    October 18th, 2011 at 3:18 PM

    Dear Sean Parker, Yes, after the 28th no more public tests, we will be too engaged to manufacture and test for our Customers. We will continue R&D work with Bologna University and Uppsala University, but the work will not be public. Actually, also the test of the 28th will not be public, being a test made by the Customer, with his experts, along a contractual protocol. Anyway it will be the last work with a public report made upon the resulting numbers.

    Warm Regards,

    In response to a question Rossi also tells us that "prominent scientific journalists" will be attending the test. The questioner asks "In other words, will this test be the one that finally makes the E-Cat known to the larger public through mass media reports?" Rossi's reply "Yes". 

    One immediately thinks of prominent scientific journalists from Nature, New Scientist and all of the other heavyweight mainstream publications, but it remains to be seen if that is what Rossi means by "prominent scientific journalists".  Enough time has passed and enough interesting experiments have taken place to rouse even the most dopey journalist out of their iPhone obsessions, so it certainly makes sense that by now most of the big media would have been making enquiries (perhaps behind the scenes). This 28th Oct test is after all, "The BIG One".

    The results of the test may not become known publicly for some time after the experiment concludes (perhaps even weeks), but Rossi seems confident that news of the eCat as a new primary energy source will be delivered to the sleeping goggle eyed masses.

    Unlike Rossi, I am less confident that the energy industry and it's political apparatus and media partners will bow in submission to the new kid on the block - LENR. Unless of course the transition to these technologies has been designed to happen this way?


    eCat: "Potential Game Changer" Says Business Recorder

    Another mainstream article features the eCat. This time it's a major Pakistan Business site "Business Recorder". Interestingly filed under "oil and gas", the article deals with the promise of new energy technologies and the wave of new investment opportunities that will be created.

    From the article:

    "In fact, as the worlds energy needs continue to mushroom, alternative energy has been the buzzword among visionary inventors and savvy investors. These visionaries, keen on riding the waves of innovation, are eyeing a promising new technology on the horizon that could wash away conventional energy generation technologies"

    Forbes Reports On eCat

    Monday, October 17, 2011

     After more than 10 months, is the mainstream media finally catching up to the news that we are on the verge of an energy revolution?

    Mark Gibbs paints a comfortingly optimistic picture of life post eCat revolution.

    "If this device works as claimed, the world will change and not just a little but hugely and at every level of how we’re organized, how we make stuff, how we travel, and how wealth is distributed. And those changes won’t just impact the US or the Western hemisphere; they well transform the entire world because incredibly cheap energy is the ultimate game changer."

    "So, the E-Cat will be demonstrated on the 28th of this month and I, for one, will be watching with great interest and enormous hope because if Rossi’s E-Cat system works, it will be goodbye recession and hello, brave new world." - Mark Gibbs (

    Cheap power: An overnight revolution

    Written from the point of view of powering racks and racks of servers in global datacentres.  It would be true to say this would save a vast amount of energy costs for the companies involved, but I can think of 438 more needy applications of eCat technology.  Beer fridge for example.

    Anyway, here's the article.


    Defkalion Respond To Stremmenos: Let's Move Forward With LENR

    Thursday, October 13, 2011

    Dear Christo,

    It was with profound regret that I read your public letter and personal attacks against Defkalion. I was even more surprised by the obvious contradiction with your status as Honorary Vice President and Head of our company’s R&D. In legal terms, this could be considered by ill-wishers as a breach of contract.

    Please recall that we have incurred considerable damage in the recent past from inaccurate statements. For example the announcement of alleged rights of Ampenergo, which are contradictory to our contractual rights with EFA. Christo, as you remember, the contract we signed on November 17, 2010 with EFA, clause 1.13 clearly states that our global presence excludes the USA and military applications.

    As a key player involved between the contracted parties, you also signed a document relinquishing your impartiality to become a formal member of Defkalion’s BoD with the position of VP of R&D, which was given to you after your personal request for this position and was unanimously agreed by our BoD.

    Since June you have unfortunately missed all of BoD meetings and R&D development breakthroughs. Although you and Rossi received, signed and approved our product designs for Version 3, we have made significant progress since then and are now in Version 7, which leads to a full working prototype ready for production.

    Your declaration that "we don’t have the technology" is in contradiction to your recent attempts to entice away our scientists which was not concluded successfully.

    We stress again that it is a pity that our designs were applied wrongly, demonstrating in public, immature prototypes with wrong protocols and instruments as explained in our communication on Monday, 10th October.

    In all such cases, had there been close cooperation with Defkalion to develop the technology together, as opposed to focusing and putting pressure on us to receive money, many of these unfortunate legal and technical misunderstandings could have been avoided.

    As such, all these created serious delays for all contractual parties and for payment to be made according to our contract. You will safely recall that payment is based on the successful demonstration according to protocols and procedures that have been supplied to EFA, whose conditions have not been met yet.

    Many will agree that this situation is confusion to the point of comic tragic. Defkalion has the science, the know-how and the ability to proceed, the team, the electronics, the engineering, as well as all the funds required to move this project forward; there is no delusion. Yet, there seems to be a strange urgency to avoid the kick-off of this project but instead just to create negative noise. Defkalion respects your position and friendship, as well as Rossi’s creativity and ingenuity. However, patience has its limits and business has its goals. It would be a shame for Defkalion to move forward in LENR either alone or with alternative technologies.

    I hope you agree that such a situation of confusion can only create great consternation. However, Defkalion confirms that it has the organization and professional team, plus all necessary infrastructure in order to direct the availability of funds. I sincerely hope that we shall press the start button together.
