There’s a big fly buzzing in the ear of the Corporate Energy Market recently. One of those persistent flies that you can’t seem to get to go away. Not that Andrea Rossi‘s new LENR technology wouldn’t be welcomed with open arms by the average citizen of the world. Despite fierce academic opposition and incessant criticism, Rossi churns ahead. Currently in development is the Rossi hot-cat 1MW plant, and home E-cat. Rossi has already sold a 1MW heat plant to the US military and it has been running for the last 8000 hours with a calculated COP of 6.
LENR stands for Low Energy Nuclear Reactions. Basically this means Cold Fusion but we can’t say those two words together in the scientific community can we. Cold Fusion has had a cloudy and somewhat controversial past. When Fleischmann and Pons announced cold fusion back in 1989 the world was shocked. Due to difficulties replicating their experiments in the short period researches were given; Cold Fusion was quickly dubbed crackpot science and impossible. However today there are more than 100 reports of excess heat being produced from what is believed to be Low Energy Nuclear Reactions or Cold Fusion. It’s now believed that Fleischmann and Pons were setup from the beginning and cornered by the Oil and Nuclear industry and mislabeled frauds or quacks in order to suppress a possible cheap replacement for all known energy production methods. Now after 23 years, CF has reemerged and appears to be spreading like a chain reaction and is unable to be suppressed. Leading this revolution is Andrea Rossi and Italian inventor who calls his Nuclear Reactor the energy catalyzer or just Ecat for short. The Rossi E-cat 2013 outlook is looking pretty hot. I’d put this at the top of the list.
