Thanks to a reader who sent me this interesting post from Andrea Rossi today.

Pietro F.:
Yes, the new factory of Leonardo Corporation in which the E-Cat X will be manufactured is in Florida. I must repeat F9, but I can add that in these very days we are making exponential progress. We are very close to be ready to make 1 million pcs/year, technologically speaking. From the moment I will decide that we are ready to start to the moment in which we will start the production line, it will take not more than 3 months. All is already organized. Now that I can give to this concern my full time, we are advancing very fast.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

Andrea Rossi has said that can’t and won’t say anything about the results of the test until the results are delivered until he has received the report from the referee. Rossi has said that he has compared his own test results with those of the referee over the course of the test, and they have been close — so I’m sure he has a very good idea of what to expect from the referee.

Rossi has also said consistently that the industrial phase of the E-Cat’s development would begin if the 1MW plant test was a success, so maybe his obvious excitement about his new-found freedom from the container, and activity in the new factory is an indication that things went well.

    THE BILL GATES INTERVIEW: “”An energy miracle is coming, and it’s going to change the world””

      I am a little surprised at how many influential people seem to be watching this, despite all the oposition. Till now I think many have feared to speak out. Do they post here I wonder.

        These people can watch this without seeing it at all. The eyes see what they want to see and disregard the rest.

      Gates and all his billionaire buddies will lose all those ill informed investments in all those alternate energy companies: how sweet it is.

      Quote:
      “He has invested heavily in TerraPower, which is developing a form of
      nuclear power that aims to be safer, with less waste and lower capital
      costs. But Mr. Gates said it will be nearly 10 years before a prototype
      will be built and at least 2030 before such reactors are available for
      commercial deployment.”

    Heath . . . . Wow ! ! ! !

    If there is truth in this quote about ITPR#1, then as far as I’m concerned Pres. Obama was made aware of ITPR#2 and this recent 1yr Pilot Plant test.

    Pres. Obama is very willing to communicate using the leverage of symbolism . . . this only increases the probability of an announcement on the F&P anniversary.

    Time will tell what happens.

    • psi2u2

      My sources suggest that Obama has been well informed for some time.

    We definitely do have several ideas about what Dr R. says would happen and what did not happen. It can be all rolled up into this: despite his amazing invention and his amazing progress in switching from research to practical, he’s not a good at estimating schedules. Look back at everything he wrote about schedules and estimates. Go look it up, it’s recorded here and in JONP. All have been far too optimistic. That is not an unusual thing for emerging technologies.
    There is no doubt this can be a world changing device, that is not at question.
