    • STERLING'S COMMENT: I suspect that most of the above sites are run by the same person. They have a similar layout, do not list a contact, show the same video on the home page, and have a similar writing style.
  • Products
    • Domestic eCat Certification Autumn 2012 - answering a question on his blog, Andrea Rossi tells us to expect certification (I assume for domestic units) by Autumn 2012. Not long ago he was talking about one to two years and then said they had a breakthrough that should speed things up. Now we have… (eCatNews; )
    • Bologna Test Report: If You Buy E-Cat & You're Not Content, You May Then Return It - Rossi stated that the only assurance needed for those who would buy E-Cat, is the ability to return it in case it doesn't function properly. And per his statements, there will be a money back guarantee: if you buy E-Cat and it doesn't work, you're free to return it. (BuyECat; December 29, 2011)
  • Applications
    • Could Starships Use Cold Fusion Propulsion? - Rossi has exhibited the e-cat at a few semi-public demonstrations, most recently on October 28. The purported "success'" of this latest demonstration has been met with enthusiasm by cold fusion acolytes and the occasional gullible journalist. (Discovery; December 23, 2011)
  • Production
    • Rossi: National Instruments Helping E-Cat Plant Become a "Magnificence" - Andrea Rossi yesterday expressed his pleasure about his collaboration with National Instruments, the Texas-based company who is providing the instrumentation for the E-Cats being manufactured by Rossi's Leonardo Corporation. When asked by a JONP reader whether the National Instruments enterprise was going well Rossi responded:  (E-CatWorld; December 24, 2011) (And ECatHome and ecatplants and ecatinfo)
      "National Instruments is the best Partner a manufacturer of plants of high technology can have. We are learning from them, and thanks to them the 1 MW plant we are finishing for our Customer is growing up a magnificence. Useless to say, all our plants will be supplied by the control systems of N.I. We are honoured to be supplied by them. The most important thing of their working way is that they do not just supply their technology, but they teach to you to grow up in its knowledge to make you able to peer-interfacing with them, like they do not just sell you good fish, but also teach you how to fish, so that fishing is empowered."
      • Are National Instruments Conducive For More Customers To Buy E-Cat Product? - Perhaps, National Instruments is the organization that at this point can do the job of providing credibility for Rossi's Catalyzers. And perhaps that's exactly what they are seen as by quite some – NI is more like a vouchsafe for the reality of Rossi's technology. (BuyECat; December 26, 2011)
    • Rossi's Goal For 2012: 1 Million Units, Kill Competition - Writing after midnight on Christmas Eve, Andrea Rossi made an interesting comment regarding the current and future state of E-Cat technology. Since the October 28th demonstration, there has been little public activity from Leonardo Corporation, and understandably people are curious about what he has been up to. Here's what Rossi says.  (E-CatWorld; December 27, 2011) (And rossienergycatalyzers and andrearossiecat)
      "In this period we did not talk too much and we did not give substantial news, but we worked tremendously on the business side and now I can say we have the Partners who will allow us to produce sooner than expected the 10 kW E-Cats at a price that will kill the Copy-Cats of the competitors. The first generation will produce heat, and will be able to be retrofitted to produce also electricity when we will be ready for it.
      "I hope within 2012. We must have a production of 1 million pieces immediately, to put the price at a level to reach these strategic targets:
      "1- allow everybody to buy it
      "2- kill the competition"
      • E-Cat Production Goals for 2012 - There has been plenty of new and exciting information coming up from Andrea Rossi through The Journal of Nuclear Physics. First, the ultimate E-Cat goal for was made public by Italian inventor Andrea Rossi, just after midnight, on Christmas Eve. His interesting comment discusses the present state of the device, as well as future plans for the ECat technology. (ECatReport; December 28, 2011)
      • Rossi Shares Some Important E-Cat Info Concerning 2012 - on December 24th he announced that he was planning to unveil home units in the following year and begin with 1,000,000 pieces immediately. The 1 million announced will take care of two items simultaneously – it will "kill the competition" and "allow everybody to buy it." (ECatInfo; December 28, 2011)
      • STERLING'S COMMENT: I don't agree with the sentiment to "kill competition". I don't think anyone in the free energy sector will need to worry about "competition" for many years, as it will take a long time before market penetration is achieved. 1000 companies making thousands, or even some of them making millions of units, would not have a problem finding customers and applications in enough time to make a return on their capital investment.
    • Rossi: Titanic Step For eCat Production - Today, Andrea Rossi talks about a titanic step forward, crediting a lucky idea and the capability of his new partner for allowing fast scaling of volume and a consequential low price that will kill competition. It's true that we must put this in context as a 'Rossi… (eCatNews; )
      • Rossi: "Titanic Step Forward" Allows Price of E-Cat to be Low Enough to "Forbid Any Competition" - Andrea Rossi has just made a significant statement on his JONP site which, if it all comes to pass, would put Leonardo Corporation firmly at the forefront of the LENR movement, and in position to make a major impact on the world energy picture. A reader asks: "As soon as you'll deliver a 10Kw thermal + 3Kw electric (that sould be 20Kw thermal) unit at 10K€ with 100€ per recharge I'll rush for it. What do you think of this price point?" (E-CatWorld; December 27, 2011)
  • Credibility
    • More "Helpful" E-Mails from the DOE A friend of mine sent an e-mail regarding Andrea Rossi to the United States Secretary of Energy, Steven Chu, in late October. Of course Secretary Chu did not respond but a couple of his underlings did. Some of the responses are what one would expect from the Department of Energy but some were a little surprising. (E-CatSite; ) (And ecatreport)
      • DOE eCat Stance Two Months Apart - In September of this year, the assistant to Al Opdenaker of the DOE answered an email enquiry on the dept.'s LENR stance. The response was not encouraging and Ruby Carat at Cold Fusion Now covered the exchange (and followed it with their own letter and reply). … He is effectively saying that Rossi is right in his approach and that by the time the lumbering giant swung into action, people will be buying the systems if they work so watch and wait. (eCatNews; )
      • Has US Department of Energy Changed its Mind About Cold Fusion? - the US Department of Energy (DOE) maybe in the process of changing its mind about low energy nuclear reaction. (EnergyCatalyzer3; December 26, 2011)
      • Chief NASA Scientist Bushnell Believes in Andrea Rossi E-Cat - In a letter written by Albert Opdenaker of the DOE Fusion Energy Sciences Energy department, it has been revealed that there has been a change of opinion in the US Department of Energy regarding the Andrea Rossi E-Cat. (AndreaRossiECat; )
      • DoE Insider Believes In E-Cat Motor - It can be recalled that the United Stated Department of Energy was indifferent, if not skeptical, about Andrea Rossi's E-Cat Motor. Thus, it came as a surprise when Albert Opdenaker of the US Department of Energy – Office of Science – sent an email to recently. The content of the letter was very straightforward [...] (ECatMotor; )
      • Department Of Energy Changes Their Opinion On E-Cat Home Invention Within 2 Months - Back in September of this year the Department of Energy was [asked] about their official stand on the Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR)... Now, two months since the September letter, it seems like the DOE have begun warming up to Rossi's E-Cat home and plant technology. (ECatHome; December 27, 2011)
      • Opdenaker Speaks About Rossi Energy Catalyzer - Albert Opdenaker of the US Department of Energy issued a statement about Andrea Rossi Energy Catalyzer. His stance about this particular Low Energy Nuclear Reaction device is positive and encouraging. But Opdenaker emphasized the fact that his statement is not the official stand of the US Department of Energy on the matter. He further disclaimed that his statements regarding Rossi Energy Catalyzer and LENR do not reflect the opinion of the other members of the department. (RossiEnergyCatalyzers; December 27, 2011)
      • E-Cat Patent Backed by DOE's Opdenaker - DOE on the other side has been very open to the exploration of Rossi's e-cat patent.  ... He voiced his confidence in the effectiveness and productivity of Rossi's e-cat patent and suggested that the involvement of the DO was unnecessary. (ECatPatent; December 27, 2011)
      • DOE Thinks That Buy E-Cat Is A Pre-Emptive Action of Hype? - Talk in about the involvement of the DOE in the energy catalyzer review and evaluation has kept people guessing. has been voicing a notice of attitude towards the buy e-cat movement that has mirrored the willingness of the public to change. It now seems that really everyone wants to use or buy e-cat in … (ECatFusion; December 27, 2011)
      • The DOE Doesn't Want To Convince People To Buy E-Cat Products - "If Rossi has already sold more than 10 of the 1 MW plants… and it turns out that the plants work and Rossi's customers are happy with them, I do not think that the DOE needs to get into the mix to convince people to buy a product that others have already bought and are wildly happy with." (BuyECat; December 27, 2011)
      • The DOE Of The United States Has Woken Up To E-Cat Info - Opdenaker said: "My change of mind was a direct result of talking to Dr. Dennis Bushnell, the Chief Scientist for NASA Langley who has assured me that over 100 experiments worldwide indicate that LENR is real..." (ECatInfo; December 27, 2011)
    • E-Cat Motor Confuses Mainstream Scientists - Scientists are trained to be objective in their experiments and to be very keen observers so that they can explain the outcome of their tests. In addition, it is a rule that if it has not been observed and replicated by reputed scientists, certain phenomena are not considered as real. However, there are some occurrences [...] (ECatMotor; )
    • Rossi Energy Catalyzer: Catalyst Of Change - Because of Rossi's diligence and stubborn persistence in bringing the news of cold fusion to the public, many scientists have been motivated to step up and confirm their own experiments on cold fusion – a technology that has been long considered taboo and disreputable. (RossiEnergyCatalyzers; December 22, 2011)
  • Patents
    • Approval of E-Cat Patent Can Kill Competition - As the year 2011 comes to an end, competition in the sale of the Andrea Rossi Energy Catalyzer Device heats up to near boiling point. Rossi and his competitors will be thinking along the lines of who will sell the most numbers of Low Energy Nuclear reaction devices in the coming year. As this scenario unfolds, the question of who will get the E-Cat patent approval from Europe and US patent office becomes very crucial. (ECatPatent; December 28, 2011)
    • Overcoming Anti-Cold Fusion/LENR Inertia — Can E-Cat Patents Be Fast-Tracked? - One of the major obstacles facing the commercialization of E-Cat/LENR technology involves patents. Andrea Rossi has said that he won't release home-based E-Cats until he has patent approval for his invention. Although they have made no public statement on the subject, it appears that as a matter of policy, the US Patent office does not issue patents for cold fusion/LENR inventions. For years, people who have applied for cold fusion patents have received the same information back from the U.S. Patent office: a copy... (E-CatWorld; December 23, 2011)
    • E-cat Patent Application Is Already In The Works Despite Mystery - It is already a public knowledge that it defies the laws of physics and no matter if it really works; the technology remains a big question mark. This was also the situation when it comes to Rossi's e-cat patent application in the past.... (ECatPatent; December 23, 2011)
    • Rossi's E-Cat Patent Is Still Pending - We already know that Rossi has an Italian patent but the e-cat patent applications for US and the European Union are still pending. (ECatPatent; December 22, 2011)
  • Theory
    • Bias Against Rossi Energy Catalyzer Is Beyond Scientific Explanation - Theory of Everything, Charge Clusters, ... All of the above mentioned phenomena defy the existing laws of science. Yet cold fusion, the basis for Rossi Energy Catalyzer, is the only one under attack. (RossiEnergyCatalyzers; December 23, 2011)
    • Andrea Rossi E-cat Is LENR and Not Cold Fusion - There have been many talks about the difference between LENR and cold fusion. If we are going to compare the two types of technologies, many prefer the term LENR probably because they want to get away from the bad reputation of cold fusion. Andrea Rossi also prefers to call his controversial Andrea Rossi E-cat as LENR or Low Energy Nuclear Reaction. (AndreaRossiECat; )
    • ECat Deviates From All Scientific Theories. But That's Fine - Cold fusion remains a partial mystery even to scientists. According to scientific journals, its existence would violate the current laws of physics. At the same time, however, this 'impossible' label never stopped many scientists to make further experiments to demonstrate and duplicate cold fusion experiments in various forms, in over 500 laboratories around the world. (ECatReport; December 23, 2011)
    • Dr. Claude Swanson And His "Things That Science Can't Explain": It Looks Like E-Cat Info Fits! - But what if our current science is wrong about this one, as Dr. Swanson suggested in his chapter on cold fusion back in 2003, and what if Energy Catalyzer is capable of helping us, humanity at large, take a leap of faith and embrace that, which is scientifically believed to be nonexistent and helps shape new science? (ECatInfo; December 23, 2011)


    • Plan X: I Want My Future Back! - Obstacles to the advent of the LENR revolution, the Green Energy Age are no longer technical, they are political, social, psychological and spiritual! Two basic themes are being taken up en masse by the LENR community. (E-CatSite; )
    • Who Buried Cold Fusion? An Open Letter to Michael Moore - The following open letter to Michael Moore was submitted by E-Cat World reader Kelley Trezise To Mr. Michael Moore: Who Buried Cold Fusion? I am addressing this letter to you as you are known as someone who has no fear of stepping into controversy. With that I still feel compelled to warn you, that... (E-CatWorld; December 24, 2011)
    • Less Attention To Self-Made "Scientific Gurus," And Perhaps More Will Buy E-Cat Units  - if it wasn't for those, who questioned "conventional wisdom," propagated by the self-made gurus and scientific know-it-all's, we would still believe the earth was flat and held up by elephants or turtles. (BuyECat; December 23, 2011)
    • Environmentally-Aware Politicians Will Favor Andrea Rossi E-Cat - If the US voters want to know who among the candidates are the real environmentalists, they should watch out who will support Andrea Rossi E-Cat, or at least the Low Energy Nuclear Reaction technology. ...True environmentalist will support the cold fusion technology because of its overall implication to climate planet change, environmental safety, and the good of the planet, in general. (AndreaRossiECat; )
    • 2011 – ANDREA ROSSI & SERGIO FOCARDI, MEN OF THE YEAR! - The Rossi and Focardi achievements with their E-Cat reactor are: 
      • First to harness and control the energy of the Ni-H reaction
      • First to achieve large amounts of energy output using a special catalyst
      • First commercial application of the Ni-H reactor for home and industrial use (RossiFocardiFusion; December 25, 2011)
    • Give Us Our eCat. We Want It Now! - The downside to the ringside row we all share is that we can get greedy for excitement. Skimming the odd dull patch, the past year has been a rollercoaster ride worthy of any real-time scripted drama. Never before in the history of human affairs have we been… (eCatNews; )
    • eCat Polar Opposites - It is interesting to see the results of two polar opposites in the eCat debate. The amount of energy and spit used by pseudosceptics in trashing Rossi, DGT and anyone who gives light to the possibility that eCat and LENR might be real is astonishing given that… (eCatNews; )
    • The Mystery of the Andrea Rossi E-Cat Continues to Deepen - Modern science does not have the answer to all the phenomena that occurs around the world. The list of these unexplained occurrences are called hard sciences or paranormal. Except for the paranormal incidents, these effects are being proven in some scientific laboratories. ... (AndreaRossiECat; )
    • Will People Buy E-cat That Defies Science? - There are so many things that science cannot explain. And Andrea Rossi's e-cat is not an exception. Despite the fact that the controversial technology violates the laws of physics, Rossi's secret customers who buy e-cat continue to increase. (ECatFusion; December 23, 2011)

US Senate Candidate Randy Hekman from Michigan
  • Skeptics
    • Randy Hekman is Skeptical About Rossi's E-Cat Motor - Former Juvenile Court Judge Randy Hekman is vying for a seat in the US Senate. So far, he is the only senatorial candidate who included Low Energy Nuclear Reaction or LENR in his agenda. In his official campaign website, Randy Hekman outlined his energy policy in these words: (ECatMotor; ) (and ecatinfo)
      "8. Energy: The simple reality is that our economy depends on energy derived from coal, oil and natural gas to function. Energy exploration – mining and drilling – provide needed jobs and the energy these industries produce keep our economy moving. We need to end the policies that subsidize inefficient sources of energy such as ethanol, wind and geothermal. The best alternative energy program is Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR). We must work to develop this energy program."
    • US Senate Candidate Speaks About LENR - US Senate Candidate Randy Hekman from Michigan, who has been associated with LENR since he established his own company in 1996 aimed at providing energy research and consultation for LENR technology, recently announced his support for Low Energy Nuclear Reactions. (ECatReport; December 23, 2011)
    • Randy Hekman Would Perhaps Not Buy E-Cat Plant, But He Would Perhaps Invest In Larsen-Widom - He was later asked about his attitude toward Rossi and Energy Catalyzer, to which he responded with much skepticism, however, giving more credence to the technology of Larsen and Widom. (BuyECat; December 22, 2011)

      • The Defkalion-eCat Gauntlet - An interesting Christmas post from AR. Many people are assuming that he is confirming that Defkalion has the goods but without clarification, there is still room for doubt (that he is confirming DGT's claim). It is certainly one interpretation and I do hope it turns out to… (eCatNews; )
