Pure Energy Systems News

This recap will be different than usual. We usually post this once per week, but last week I was pre-occupied with another story, and I wasn't able to fit in the time to do the LENR-weekly recap. So this compilation of various news items about the various LENR companies dates from our December 13 compilation.

Mainstream news sources are indicated with the yellow highlight.

  • LENR Companies
    • Rossi, Leonardo Corp - E-Cat
      • On Swedish TV
        • Evidence Mounts In Favor of the E-Cat (E-CatNews; December 19, 2012) - In reflecting on the SVT E-Cat program, I can't help but think that this has to change some minds in favor of the E-Cat. The way I see it, this show has confirmed a lot of what Andrea Rossi has been saying over the last few months regarding the development of his technology and business plan. Here are some of the key points that stood out in the program to me.
          • There is indeed a redesigned 1 MW E-Cat plant (low temperature), something Rossi has maintained for a long time.
          • The E-Cat can self sustain. Linus Broholt, the investigating journalist said, "When Rossi has had his power cord unplugged a few  hours during our interview, the heat is maintained in the reactor, according to measurements seen on the screen."
          • Physicists Kullander and Essen are still impressed with the E-Cat. Essen mentions that in the testing they did, the E-Cat produced 10 times as much power as the electrical input.
          • Vattenfall, one of Europe's largest power companies, is actively investigating the E-Cat to replace its traditional nuclear plants.
        • The ECAT featured on Swedish Television - On the 17th of December the Swedish Television featured Andrea Rossi and the ECAT on the program Vetenskapens Vδrld (World of Science) (ECat; December 2012)
        • Swedish SVT E-Cat Program with English Subtitles - Hampus Ericsson has done a tremendous favor to all English speakers (who don't know Swedish) by providing subtitles to the recent Swedish SVT program on Rossi and the E-Cat. Thanks, Hampus for your hard work! (E-CatNews; December 22, 2012)
        • English Transcript of SVT Cold Fusion Program - Many thanks to a Swedish E-Cat World Reader Klas for providing the following transcript to yesterday's SVT program on Andrea Rossi and the E-Cat.and the E-Cat.   Rossi Cold Fusion – from SVT Vetenskapens Vδrld ( World of Science) 17 december 2012 English translation of the swedish, verbal and text. xx:xx refers to cliptime... (E-CatNews; December 22, 2012) (And ecatreport)
        • By the editors of scientific SVT play ... - Tonight, December 17, a Swedish TV on demand - SVT play - spread a report dedicated to the E-Cat, interviews with Andrea Rossi (Leonardo Corporation), Mats Lewan (NyTeknic), Sven Kullander (Uppsala University), have Essιn (Stockholm University), Christos Stremmenos and others. (22Passi; December 17, 2012)
        • E-CAT Plant Sighting - In a preview to today's Swedish SVT station's show "The World of Science"  on cold fusion there is a clip which shows an E-Cat Plant which appears to be different from the one that had been photographed and filmed numerous  times in Rossi's Bologna factory.  I don't believe that this is a Hot Cat unit (apparently built inside a drum-like... (E-CatNews; December 17, 2012)
        • Andrea Rossi Featured in Swedish TV Show - After all the previews we finally got to see the show! Of course the program was in Swedish, which made it hard for me to follow the discussion (except when Andrea Rossi speaks in English) but I was quite surprised about how much the focus was on Rossi and the E-Cat, and not on... (E-CatNews; December 22, 2012) (And
        • New Fire Lights Up Swedish TV - Andrea Rossi describes his Ecat steam generator now being developed in labs in Bologna, Italy and Miami, Florida in a Swedish TV show "The World of Science". While the video is in Swedish, Rossi describes his work in English. Close-ups of the 1 MW plant are shown in the Bologna lab. A 10 kilowatt experimental steam unit wrapped in insulation having the size of a large microwave oven is shown, though the core unit is a significantly smaller flat box centered in the interior as modeled by an animation. (ColdFusionNow; December 18, 2012)
        • Rossi Fools Swedish Public Television - Andrea Rossi and his Energy Catalyzer, a "cold fusion" hoax, were featured on a Swedish public television program on Dec. 17. The program aired on SVT1′s "Vetenskapens Varld" ("The World of Science"). SVT1 portrayed the Rossi device as real. (NewEnergyTimes; December 26, 2012)
        • Kullander and Essen's Unscientific Behavior on Swedish Television - Evidence for Rossi's claim of extraordinary production of excess-heat from his E-Cat rested on the assumption that all water going through his device was vaporized into steam. This was not the case, as would have been revealed by rudimentary measurements of steam versus water output. (NewEnergyTimes; December 27, 2012)
      • Is the e-cat real II. The fading dream for free and abundant energy (by Dr. Christian Schumacher) - During the last two years the Italian inventor Andrea Rossi has nourished the dream of cheap and abundant energy.

        • Experts in LENR - Andrea Rossi recently had an exchange with Drew, a poster on the Journal of Nuclear Physics, concerning who is doing the 3rd party report on the E-Cat. His question was: "If I may ask, are the 3rd party…" Rossi's response was that: "They are scientists, mainly with Physics Doctorate." (ECatReport; December 23, 2012)
        • Debate Over Peer Review - Rossi's announcement about the peer reviewing of his third party tests has caught many people by surprise. Most have anticipated that the third party would release the results of their testing to the journals of their selection. (ECatReport; December 17, 2012)

        • A Few Snippets - While there hasn't been a terrific amount of news in E-Cat land, from the Rossi blog there have been a few snippets of information that are worth mentioning, I think. Rossi no longer appears to be in total charge of his invention and business activity. He had said earlier this month that he hoped... (E-CatWorld; December 24, 2012)
        • Sharing the Philosophy [Updated] - At least twice now, when asked by readers of the JONP whether, after creating a partnership with a US entity, Andrea Rossi still has control of his technology he has answered that his partner "shares his philosophy."

        • Italy's Role In The E-Cat - Latest changes in the Leonardo Corp. have shaken up some of the people who follow the development of Andrea Rossi's E-Cat. The information that an anonymous U.S. party has purchased the E-Cat technology raised some questions, rather than filling us with confidence. (ECatReport; December 24, 2012)
      • Hope this Christmas - I sometimes have to ask myself why I spend so much time following this story. Might it not seem a bit strange to day by day, month by month, year by year, follow every statement, article, twist, turn, meeting, etc. about something that after all this time still remains so secretive, mysterious and unknown?...

      • Letter of prof. Stremmenos to "TO BHMA" - Professor Christos Stremmenos wrote me the other day. The occasion was a Christmas card, but took the opportunity to reiterate its position on Defkalion GT, which was once honorary president. He feels it morally involved in the birth of this company, then it can not remain indifferent when reading press releases. The straw that broke the camel's back was a long article on Defkalion GT recently appeared on an authoritative greek newspaper "TO BHMA" prof.

"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."
