It is not uncommon these days to read news articles about breakthrough energy technologies that have the potential to change the energy complex as we know it. There are many researchers working on developing cold fusion, batteries, solar panels, microgenerators, artificial photosynthesis, etc. and every now and then we will hear announcements of important findings that scientists have made. In almost all cases however, the discoveries reporte are made on the experimental level, in laboratory settings and much more time, money and work is required before commercialization will be possible.
It seems though that more often than not these technologies which have so much promise are not heard of again. There are a number of reasons why this may happen — lack of funds for research, unexpected technical difficulties, no investment capital, or maybe the technology is not reliable or powerful enough for a commercial application.
Perhaps these kinds of difficulties were on the mind of a questioner today on Rossi’s web site who asked, “Why would you want to produce commercial products so quickly ? . . . going into commercialisation too quickly has led a number of companies to bankruptcy : I remember the era of metal-air fuel cells. A more recent fashion is to lose money in start-ups working on new wind turbines. And finally, even for allready successful companies, producing and debugging a new product takes a lot of time, even the simplest. There are surprises every day.”
I think Rossi’s answer is telling: “We are making our choices based on the development of our technology and its reliability, which is totally mature to go in the market.” He has always shown this kind of confidence — and the testing that has been done by third parties seems to back up his own opinion of his technology.
Another commenter asked a question along the same lines, “How consistant is your ability to create large amounts of excess power? For example, if you made 100 E-Cat devices and began testing, how many would achieve the desired ratios of output to input power? My gut feeling is that your answer would be greater than 90, which would be wonderful. As you know, the original work in LENR was shot down because of the lack of abilitiy to reproduce results.”
Rossi responded, “Our E-Cats are perfectly reproducible and their performance is standard. Out of 100 we guarantee that 100 respect the performance data.
Should not be so we could not go deliver in Greece a 1 MW plant, made by 300 E-Cats.”
Totally mature. Perfectly reproducible. 100 per cent guaranteed. If Rossi is to believed, his technology is ready now to be put to work in a world that is in dire need of a better energy solution. Impressive indeed.
