LENR-to-Market Weekly -- January 10, 2013

Highlights this week include: Rossi having problems finding certification for home application E-Cat due to new genre; predicts "evolution" over "revolution"; CNET predictions for the future includes discussion on LENR; Slate sullies the field with lazy, knee-jerk journalism; CF colloquium coming at University of Eidenhoven.

Professor Peter Hagelstein and Mitchell Swartz will be teaching "Cold Fusion 101: Introduction to Excess Power in Fleischmann-Pons Experiments" from January 22-30

Once again, we bring you a compilation of various news items about the various LENR companies since our January 3 compilation.

Mainstream news sources are indicated with the yellow highlight.

I think this week is the lowest number of stories since I began this weekly compilation in October 2011. Just 20 stories, including two in the mainstream press. Even the regulars who usually post quite a few were sparse to nearly half of what they usually produce. Only ColdFusionNow was consistent with three stories as usual. Is this the calm before the storm, or are people distracted with other exciting developments in the exotic free energy sector?

It's not that the sector is fizzling, because there is plenty of action and hope in its future.

  • LENR Companies
    • Rossi, Leonardo Corp - E-Cat
      • Technology
        • On Rossi's Fascinating EMF Discovery - Andrea Rossi recently stated on his blog Journal of Nuclear Physics that he is currently taking the road to circumventing the Carnot Cycle. The Italian inventor posted that direct EMF from the reactor core. EMF or Electromotive Force, according to Faraday's Law, represents energy per unit charge (voltage) which has been made available by the generating mechanism and is not a 'force'. (ECatReport; January 5, 2013)
        • MIT Plans New Cold Fusion Course, Rossi Makes Interesting Claim - There is some other interesting news in LENR going on right now. Andrea Rossi is reporting that his researchers have detected some sort of electromagnetic field in his ecat LENR device. It is early to determine if this phenomenon can be harnessed for purposes such as producing electricity or not. (EnergyCatalyzer3; January 6, 2013)
      • Certification Problems
        • Fear nails the production of E-Cat - Bodies that govern the security checks do not grant clearance to the installation home in the absence of a scientific explanation of the phenomenon that generates the heat (; January 6, 2013)
        • Rossi: Domestic E-Cats Still Planned, Certification Problematic - I put in a question on the Journal of Nuclear Physics regarding plans for the domestic E-Cat in the light of the new partnership. I asked Rossi if the new partner was as committed to the home units as he was. His Response: "Absolutely yes, provided we [...] (E-CatWorld; January 4, 2013)
        • E-Cat Home: Andrea Rossi has problems with the certification - E-Cat household, time stretch for Andrea Rossi: nobody wants to certify the safety of his cold fusion device. (; January 5, 2013)
      • Business
        • Andrea Rossi, Partners & Domestic E-Cats - It Is said that nature hates a vacuum, and this is certainly true in the world of communication. If we don't know all of the facts and details on a subject, we tend to fill in with fear, suspicion, and conclusions that are not necessarily correct. (ECatReport; January 8, 2013)
        • The Hot Cat's Place in Russia - Hopes are high in many regions of Eastern Europe that Andrea Rossi's E-Cat and Hot Cat will soon be available commercially. While both are now available for sale, manufacturing is still at the startup level. In addition, the technology is still a closely guarded secret and there are no power plants in operation that are open to public viewing. (ECatReport; January 9, 2013)
      • Evolution, not Revolution
        • Revolution or Evolution? - As we all await the widespread distribution of new energy technologies, we can't help but wonder if the fossil fuel industry will be as disrupted as we think. The idea of affordable alternative energy on a massive scale – a scale big enough to replace coal-fueled power plants and provide energy for manufacturing plants – the place of fossil fuels will surely be shaken. (ECatReport; January 7, 2013)
        • Making a Dent - Andrea Rossi has in the past talked about wanting to help bring about an energy revolution with his technology, but lately he has been sounding more circumspect in his predictions. He said recently that " it will not be a revolution, but an evolution through series of integrations." I often wonder what it [...] (E-CatWorld; January 9, 2013)
    • Mitch Swartz, Nanor
      • Cold Fusion 101 at MIT - A free, week-long course on cold fusion is scheduled as part of MIT's Independent Activities Period, where professors are free to pursue areas of interest outside the regular academic curriculum. Professor Peter Hagelstein and Mitchell Swartz will be teaching "Cold Fusion 101: Introduction to Excess Power [...] (E-CatWorld; January 8, 2013) (And energycatalyzer3)
  • General Cold Fusion
    • U.S. Schools with Cold Fusion-Friendly Faculty - While there are an increasing number of professors engaged in cold fusion research at schools and colleges, not all departments and schools officially support that activity. In some cases, research is fully-endorsed and funded, such as at University of Missouri (…) (ColdFusionNow; January 6, 2013)
    • Replicating
      • Video — "Cold Fusion Reactions by Renzo Mondaini" - This video was brought to my attention via the Journal of Nuclear Physicis. It is produced by Renzo Mondaini, an electronics technician from Ravenna, Italy, who has been carrying out experiments in cold fusion at his home. The video is a series of demonstrations of various electolytic cold fusion experiments using anodes and cathodes of [...] (E-CatWorld; January 6, 2013)
    • The Magi bearing gifts - an email last night from Andrea Rampado. Warning, do not confuse and mix 1) the defense of the legitimacy and appropriateness of the research on reactions piezonuclear (which makes those who deny the time), which is discussed in this letter, 2) the defense of prof. Carpinteri as a manager of a national scientific body (INRIM) that administered with care, but you want to unseat purely political issues, the division of power and armchairs (22Passi; January 6, 2013)
    • Commentary
  • Events
    • Cold Fusion 2013 - a review of scientific progress (pdf) - The University of Eindhoven and the Dutch Association of Engineers KIVI NIRIA are pleased to host a colloquium [January 21, 2013] by prof. Jean-Paul Biberian ... In about an hour, prof. Biberian will give an up-to-date overview of cold fusion research, focusing on experimental results obtained by research groups worldwide at institutions like MIT, the US Naval Research Laboratory, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and many more. (
      • Memo: Eindhoven TU is where one of the previous demonstrations of Yildiz' magnet motor took place. -- Sterling

"It is harder to crack a prejudice than an atom." // "I'd rather be an optimist and a fool than a pessimist and right." -- Albert Einstein

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

    "When you're one step ahead
of the crowd you're a genius.
When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."

-- Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, (Feb. 1998)
