CHP and its Future With CF/LENR (Guest Post)

Many thanks to ECW Reader Alain Samoun who has provided the following article about combined heat and power systems. Some statistics that I have gathered about CHP (Mainly from Cogeneration & On-Site Power Production (COSPP) ) CHP: Combined Heat and Power (electricity)  also called Cogeneration and DG distributed generation. The local production of energy is moreRead more

The Industrial Heat Web of Connections includes GE, Others

Thanks to Mr. Moho for the following post which provides a feasible link between Industrial Heat LLC, and GE. The Tom Darden patent for a distributed energy system mentioned in a post here yesterday lists the co-inventor as James Kevin (Jim) Syperski, who is CEO of a Raleigh, North Carolina company called Power Generation Services,Read more

Tom Darden of Cherokee/Industrial Heat Files Patent for Microgrid System

Thanks to Andreas Moraitis for finding this interesting patent application filed by Tom Darden (CEO of Cherokee Investment Partners and Chairman of Industrial Heat LLC) titled “Systems and methods for microgrid power generation and management” It’s unclear to me whether this was filed with the E-Cat in mind because the application date is listed asRead more

Private LENR R&D requires permit in Germany?

I thought this was a point that readers here might find interesting. A few weeks ago ECW reader ‘hunfgerh‘ made a comment here that in Germany private experimentation of LENR reactors was forbidden. Today the same poster has more specific saying: “Authorities people from the area of atomic energy act have threatened me with a report to police.Read more

LENR — ‘A Dragon With Many Tails’

I thought I would feature this post from ECW reader Neanderthal today as it seems to give a glimpse into the kind of thinking and discussion about LENR that may be going on behind the scenes in scientific (and other) institutions. Today Neanderthal wrote this comment in another thread: I work for one of theRead more

Lithium: The Case for an E-Cat Catalyst (Guest Post)

The following guest post was submitted by Rick Allen. There are a combination of factors that make a nickel-hydrogen cold fusion system work and allow for massive energy production. This has been demonstrated by Andrea Rossi’s “Energy Catalyzer” technology. Repeated tests – private, public, corporate, and institutional – have determined the E-Cat technology can produceRead more

Rossi: ‘Same’ Independent Party Making Very ‘Conservative’ Work

The drip feeding of information from Andrea Rossi continues on the Journal of Nuclear Physics. A poster asked Rossi why he keeps talking about the possibility of a ‘negative’ report, when he knows full well that the E-Cat works. Rossi replied: Gunnar Lindberg: You make your son well educated, well trained, and test him manyRead more

Rossi: E-Cat ‘Reliability has been Reached’ [Update: E-Cat Has 'Never Stopped']

I followed up with Andrea Rossi on the comment yesterday about the E-Cat test being made in a neutral place (not Italy or the USA), and that they had shipped the E-Cat to the testing venue. I asked whether one or more E-Cats had been sent, and he responded that they had sent three reactorsRead more

Rossi: Third Party E-Cat Test Taking Place in Neutral Venue — Not in Italy or USA

Here is another little drip of information from Andrea Rossi regarding the location of the E-Cat test: April 10th, 2014 at 8:30 AM Dear Andrea Rossi, When you say that the Professors are conducting their work “in a neutral laboratory”, do you mean they are still in your premises, or instead situated in a laboratoryRead more

Waiting for the Cat to Roar (Guest Post)

The following guest post has been submitted by Rick Allen. Hopefully soon, a new report detailing an extended test of the high temperature version of the E-Cat or Energy Catalyzer will be released, and expectations for this report are high. For many reasons, many of us who have been following this saga hope the resultsRead more

Rossi on Extent of Testing and Review

I wrote on the Journal of Nuclear Physics today asking Andrea Rossi if he thought it made any difference where the upcoming report is published. I mentioned that in my opinion, if the report is well-written, thoroughly documented, and signed by the various authors, it should be acceptable, wherever it ended up being published. IRead more

Rossi: Working on Miniaturized E-Cat Reactors in R&D Labs

An interesting comment by Andrea Rossi has been posted on the Journal of Nuclear Physics today in response to a suggestion from a reader named Mark who proposed the idea of ‘antibiotic pill’-sized E-Cat reactors that could be heated to meltdown temperatures, and safely explode in a sealed chamber attached to a heat exchanger atRead more
