LENR-to-Market Weekly -- May 17, 2012

Given the magnitude of the recent disclosures about the E-Cat, I've decided to move them back into #1 position in our Top 5 Exotic Free Energy Technologies listing, influence by the report that their first 1 MW plant sold is now in full operation. Defkalion delays further their 3rd party test results publication.

  • LENR Companies
    • Rossi, Leonardo Corp - E-Cat
      • News update from Andrea Rossi and in May - ECAT Licensees Leonardo Corp have a number of Licensees for its products for various regions around the world including its northern Europe Licensee Hydro Fusion Ltd, which also attended the E-Cat 1MW October test. All E-Cat Licensees have attended demos (ECat; May 14, 2012)

        ECAT Licensees

        Leonardo Corp have a number of Licensees for its products for various regions around the world including its northern Europe Licensee Hydro Fusion Ltd, which also attended the E-Cat 1MW October test. All E-Cat Licensees have attended demos of operating E-Cat units.

        A convention will be held for all E-Cat Licensees and is set for October. An official list of all licensees will then be published online here at

        ECAT 1 MW Updates

        One ECAT 1 MW plant has been delivered and is working in a military facility. Andrea Rossi recently made the following statement:

        “The 1 MW plant has been delivered and is working in a military concern. It has been made in the USA, after the October test of the prototype made in Italy; such prototype will be delivered, with the modifications which we will complete based on what we learnt from the model at work, to a European Customer in July. ”

        • The ECAT 1 MW plant in USA is now stable at very high temperatures.
        • The industrial plants will get the necessary certification within weeks.
        • The price for an E-Cat 1 MW plant is still $1.5M; orders can be made from the inquiry form on the right side at this website.

        ECAT Home Updates

        The development of the ECAT Home unit is progressing according to plan. An important temperature stability has been achieved in the E-Cat home unit development. The safety issues related to the E-Cat home unit running at very high temperatures are now in progress.

        The certification progress is well underway and Leonardo Corp is working closely with an independent safety authority to minimize the time to certification. Leonardo Corp is now awaiting the exact requirements related to a rapid emergency shut-off system for the E-Cat home unit.

        If you want to use the E-Cat like a standalone independent heating unit, you will need to connect it to a radiator through a circuit. This must be done by a professional installer, for safety reasons.

        The instruction manual for the E-Cat will be developed according to specifications from the independent safety authority and will be published on

        The final cost of the home device will be set after certifications are acquired.

        To pre-order an ECAT Home unit just fill in the ECAT inquiry form to the right.

        ECAT Technology Updates

        Leonardo Corp and Andrea Rossi is currently working on a new reactor type with specifications far better than the previous versions of E-Cat. The canonical improvement is that the new E-Cat is now working stably at much higher temperatures than previously achieved. These temperatures allows for a vast number of electricity solutions at 40%+ gross heat-to-power efficiencies and 25%+ net efficiencies taking into account the power used by the process. The design allows for merely any heat transferring media including water/steam, heat-transferring-oils, molten salts but also hot air.

        The high temperature E-Cat reactor currently in test also opens up for applications with Stirling Engines. The new reactor is smaller in size and has a charge of 1.5 grams and more shielding than the original reactor. The new progress also gives the possibility to increase the COP for industrial applications.

        Currently a one month long E-Cat test is in progress as part of the new development process. Stay tuned to for the latest developments.

        • Defkalion and Rossi Stir - Kudos to my good friend, Frank at e-catworld for his interview with Andrea Rossi. It is well worth your time. After a period of relative silence from both major players in the game, Defkalion also made an appearance in the shape of a ‘progress’ pdf. As interesting… (ECatNews; May 14, 2012)
      • Is E-Cat Technology Exotic Energy? - A new trust has been launched in Salt Lake City, UT. This trust has its own website dedicated to promotion of “cutting-edge, clean energy technologies”. The trust has been developed for the purpose of promoting the top 5 “exotic energies” being researched today. Among these technologies is LENR, also (partially) known as cold fusion.

      • Back in #1 Spot in Top 5 Free Energy Technologies Listing - Given the magnitude of recent developments / disclosures regarding the E-Cat, I've restored them to the top spot in our Top 5 listing. The primary reason I had moved them off the top to a position low in runners up was because of what appeared to be a poor ability to work as a team and take reasonable input from colleagues, thus drastically reducing the possibility of achieving the projected objectives. But recent developments indicate major accomplishments that could only happen if a spirit of teamwork is in play. The report of the 1 MW plant sold to the first customer finally being in operation, weighed heavily in this rise in position as well; as did the report of longevity testing being under way. -- Sterling
    • Defkalion - Hyperion
      • Slideshow Reveals Defkalion’s LENR Testing and Construction - Defkalion Green Technologies has released a slide show of pictures of laboratory and construction work at its facility in Xanthi in Northern Greece. The pictures released include several of its Hyperion Low Energy Nuclear Reaction device, shots of the screens of computers monitoring LENR tests and some images of new laboratories under construction. (ColdFusion3; May 12, 2012)
      • Sterling's Assessment: A group Defkalion is working with wants them to postpone posting data from their tests until August when there is a big conference where they will be making a presentation. The scuttlebutt is that while the third party test results have been positive, there have been indications of instability and inconsistency between tests, which doesn't speak well for production readiness. They're still on track as a leader, but not in first position any more. In my opinion, the long delay in posting those test results which were supposed to be forthcoming even as early as during the testing, contrary to their promised early release, is a significant setback.

NOTE: NOTE: We have replaced the previous Echo comment service with Disqus. The old Echo database of comments has now been imported into Disqus. The old comments are loaded in date received order. This will mean that if say, someone posted a reply a week after a comment was posted, then it will appear before the original post does (in other words jumbling up will occur in the normal Parent/Child pattern of replies) and comments will not follow a logical order. However, comments you have made/make in Disqus since the changeover date will appear in the normal order of appearance.

All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
