For years now, when asked whether he thought that the E-Cat would revolutionize the energy industry and supersede other energy sources and technology, Andrea Rossi has said something like “all energy sources will be integrated”. I have often wondered why he would keep saying such a thing when to me it seems that the purpose of bringing the E-Cat into the marketplace was because it is has advantages over other options for a number of reasons, such better power density, cheaper, not radioactive, no emissions, etc.
Today on the Journal of Nuclear Physics, in a response to the question: “Please, if you have some time, can you explain why “all” energy sources should be integrate ?” Rossi repeated his normal phrase, but added something to his standard reply:

All the sources must be integrated otherwise LENR will be killed.
It’s an interesting twist, and of course raises a number of questions about who or what might kill LENR, and how it might be killed. Andrea Rossi is of course privy to a lot of information in connection with his position of CEO of Leonardo Corporation, serving under a board of (so far unidentified) directors of an investors trust which owns Leonardo.
It is not difficult to think of currently powerful interests around the world who do not want to see any major disruptions to the energy status quo. On the other hand, we hear Rossi talk about making preparations for “massive” production and dissemination of his E-Cat technology, which does not sound like he wants just dip his toe into the market and not ruffling feathers.
We don’t know everything Rossi knows regarding the E-Cat and his business situation. Maybe he’s being too cautious, or maybe he has good reason to talk about integration.
