E-Cat demonstrations 2011
Below you'll find all of the E-Cat demonstrations performed during 2011.
January 14, 2011
On January 14, 2011 Andrea Rossi gave a demonstration at the University of Bologna that was observed by independent scientific representatives from the school. The device used in this demonstration was their industrial product, refined by building and destroying a thousand models in order to fine tune the new technology. Physicist Giuseppe Levi called the results "impressive" and acknowledged the potential of the E-Cat.
March 29, 2011
On March 29, 2011 a demonstration testing a smaller version of the E-Cat was given for Swedish physicists Hanno Essen and Sven Kullander. The test resulted in a net power output of 4.4 kilowatts, and a total energy output of twenty-five kilowatts. Rossi handed out samples of used and unused nickel powder, claiming the presence of copper and iron in the used powder as evidence of nuclear reactions taking place. Essen and Kuller offered the caveat that they could only make very general comments without having access to the internal design of the device, but nevertheless the test seemed to be a success.
April 19 and 28, 2011
On April 19 and 28, the E-cat was demonstrated again. Taking place shortly after Rossi secured an Italian patent for his invention, these demonstrations gained increased media attention. The April 19 demonstration was covered by the 24-hour state run Italian news channel. Interest seemed to be growing in the E-Cat and its capabilities.
September 7, 2011
On September 7, 2011 a larger version of the E-Cat, scheduled for use in one of the first planned energy plants to utilize the new invention, was demonstrated for eight hours. It was reportedly operated for ninety minutes with a power input of 2.6 kilowatts. After this, it then ran for thirty-five minutes with a 25 watt input.
October 6, 2011
Another eight hour demonstration of the E-Cat was given on October 6, 2011. Among attendance at this particular demonstration was retired Associate Professor at University of Uppsala Roland Pettersson. Pettersson reported that the device worked, but cautioned that there was still room for improvement with the new technology.
October 28, 2011
The last demonstration took place on October 28, 2011. This demonstration tested a 1 megawatt power plant based entirely around the E-Cat. It was reported to have been tested for an unknown potential customer by engineer Domenico Fioravanti. The plant released an average power of four hundred seventy-nine kilowatts during the demonstration.
What Is The E-Cat
The E-Cat (also called the energy catalyzer) is an exciting new invention that was demonstrated a handful of times in 2011 to various groups of guests. The invention is a new heat source that utilizes cold fusion technology and is capable of producing more than ten kilowatts of heat power while only consuming a small fraction of the same energy. The device works by transmuting nickel infused with heated hydrogen into copper, which produces heat.
Eventual wide use of the E-Cat could fundamentally alter the way energy is consumed all over the globe, limiting the effects of climate change and creating clean, cheap energy. The implications of geographic settlement are profound as well, as we could see humans inhabiting regions previously uninhabitable due to a lack of centralized power grids.
Inventor Andrea Rossi and physicist Sergio Focardi secured an Italian patent on April 6 2011, and on seven separate occasions gave demonstrations to exhibit evidence of the device's effectiveness.
