On the Industrial Heat China Connection

The news about Industrial Heat Tom Darden visiting China last month and participating in the establishment of the Nickel Hydrogen Energy Research Center has been very intriguing, and it’s a shame we have to rely largely on imperfect computer-translated articles for our information. And even in China, information about what went on is hard toRead more

Tom Darden Involved in Opening of Nickel-Hydrogen Energy Research Center in Tianjin China

Thanks to Julian Becker for finding this important news report from the Chinese Icebank web site about the establishment of a Nickel-Hydrogen Research Center in the Tianjin Huayuan Industrial Park in Tianjin, China. Tom Darden, CEO of Cherokee Investment Partners and Chairman of Industrial Heat, LLC was present at the opening ceremony held on AprilRead more

Elon Musk Signals Tesla Motors to Move into Home Energy Storage Market

In a move that could help provide more energy independence to households, Tesla Motors founder and CEO Elon Musk discussed plans to introduce battery packs that could serve as energy storage systems for households and businesses. Effective energy storage is one of the essential components that needs to be in place for solar and windRead more

Infinite Energy Publishes Reviews of Mats Lewan’s ‘An Impossible Invention’

In its most recent issue Infinite Energy magazine has published numerous reviews of the recently released book An Impossible Invention written by Mats Lewan. A number of the reviewers are well known to followers of the LENR story, others are less familiar. There are reviews by Christy Frazier, Michael McKubre, Jed Rothwell, Brian Josephson, andRead more

Rossi: Solar Powered E-Cat Possible

We discussed the other day here about the possibility of using a battery to ‘drive’ the E-Cat — as a heat source to start it up, and control the reaction — but there are other power sources that could serve the same function, and today on the Journal of Nuclear Physics, Steven Karels raised theRead more

Report of Josh Hall Lecture on Cold Fusion

I am very grateful for this report submitted by ECW reader Clifford Kaufmann. The meeting at Eastern Shore Community College Lecture Hall on Friday, May 2, 2014 in Melfa, Virginia was well attended, with roughly fifty people present. Josh Storrs Hall, PhD, was the speaker, and he accompanied his lecture with an excellent slideshow whichRead more

The Battery Powered E-Cat

We know from all that has been revealed over the years about the E-Cat that it required an external source of heat to ‘charge’ it — i.e. to initiate the reaction, and then to control it. While Andrea Rossi has spoken recently about using natural gas as a heat source to charge and control theRead more

Rossi: IH Unable to Replicate LENR from Competitors’ Patents

We’re under quite an information blackout from Andrea Rossi and Industrial Heat these days — there will apparently be no major news about technological or commercial progress until the Third Independent Party report is published — we hope by the end of June. I don’t think this news means that nothing is going on —Read more

Tom Darden Attends Launch of Sino-US Science and Technology Innovation Park in Baoding, China

Thanks to Julian Becker for sharing a link to this article from the China Daily web site which reports about the official opening of the Sino-US Science and Technology Innovation Park in Baoding, China on April 14th. Of interest to E-Cat World readers might be that Tom Darden of Cherokee Investment Partners, and Industrial HeatRead more

Piantelli Patent Filing Published for Improving LENR Process

Thanks to Alan Smith and artefact for pointing out a recently published patent application (filed April 26, 2012) by Francesco Piantelli, which is described as a “method and apparatus for generating energy by nuclear reactions of hydrogen adsorbed by orbital capture on a nanocrystalline structure of a metal.” The process described is an attempt to solveRead more

Lithium: The Case for an E-Cat Catalyst [Updated: Piantelli Patent mentions Lithium]

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

More Progress on Alan Smith’s HHO Experiment Setup [Updated]

Alan Smith of Leap Forward Laboratory Ltd. provides his latest update on the experimental setup he is building for his experiment with HHO gas/Catalyzer that ECW is sponsoring. UPDATE: This is the latest from Alan HHO Calorimetry Experiments still moving forward. This the (almost) complete system, waiting for some more hook-up tubing. Electrolyzer and aRead more
