Andrea Rossi has said many times that now the 1MW plant test is over he is now focusing all his efforts on developing the E-Cat X, and getting it ready for mass production. It seems that he has his heart set on getting plants on the market this year — and also doing a presentation of the plant.
Here are some comments about this presentation:

We are proceeding very well and in several months we’ll have, perhaps, to make a great presentation. But it could also fail, so we have to work, work, work on it.
I hope that we will have it in operation in 2016; we will present it officially and in that occasion the information you request will be released.
Q: This presentation you refer to: do you want it to be in private, or for the general public to see?

That will be a very important presentation of a product. It has to be studied carefully and my intention is to make it publicly. This issue will be discussed with the people we will have to agree with.
If Rossi wants to make a big splash, a public presentation of the E-Cat X would certainly be the way to get the world’s attention. But a public presentation without verified data to back it up would also be suspect, so getting certified results published for the 1 MW plant would be a very important step in building the credibility that will be needed to be taken seriously.
We can’t know now whether this presentation will actually take place this year, but it does sound like Rossi and Co. are moving ahead as quickly as they can right now. If positive results are published by a respected independent body, I would guess that access to investment capital would become much easier, and there will be lots of money needed to allow for the “massive” production of E-Cats that Andrea Rossi has so often spoken about.

I am not just an inventor; I am also the guy which will industrialize
the E-Ca ts. As a matter of fact I have right now finisged my meeting
with ABB that will realize the robotized production line. And pretty
advanced with it.
As I said, the best defense of our intellectual property will be the
speed and the economy scale with which we will produce the E-Cats.
