Unlike some other potential alternative energy technologies, the E-Cat cold fusion technology is commercial ready. It is beyond the prototype stage and is in process of being implemented. A one megawatt plant producing thermal energy is planned to open in Greece the second half of October later this year. This technology is not a "pie in the sky" possibility, but a reality that due to a lack of mainstream media coverage is not being broadly noticed or anticipated.
If in the coming years, existing conventional nuclear plants are shutdown, or if plans for new plants are cancelled, the E-Ca
However this is the first one in quite a while that claims to be beyond the prototype stage and ready to rock and roll.
18 hour demonstration,
peer reviewed papers,
Implementing 1 meg plant, etc. etc
As I said I am sceptical too. However just because orthodox science communities will not give them the time of day does not mean a thing. Every significant invention in history was shunned by these same types.
And I see no where they are asking for backing or money of any kind.

I think your far from proving he is just made up. And why couldn't a professor from another discipline be an "advisor"? Maybe he was just an editorial advisor or perhaps he minored in physics or something related? When did he die? Perhaps they just did not remove his name yet?
So called cold fusion has been reproduced thousands of times yet no orthodox scientific journal will give it the time of day to even say we need to study it further but in fact bash it endlessly.
Also why so focused on thier journal and not on the technology itself? If it works I don't care about their journal. Why don't we wait till we have enough information about it instead of trying to disprove it before we have all the data etc. If it is a fake it will fade away like the rest.
Andrea Rossi was jailed and 56 will undergo processes that engage for about 17 years. Of all these processes, all the more serious ones for which he was imprisoned, they will end with acquittal. Of the remaining processes, which are exclusively tax reasons, caused by the bankruptcy of the companies concerned, will end up with 5 sentences, the others will end in acquittals, and requirements.
In 1979, Andrea Rossi will I get a degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Kensington, California (USA) also because of the numerous professional credits earned at the University thanks to the numerous patents filed since the first years of his professional career.

I agree we need more information and data however why can't we be cautiously optimistic? And orthodox science communities and journals do not support many sound scientific achievements inventions and breakthroughs! In fact they are known for being very close minded and politically and profit motivated. So called cold fusion has been reproduced thousands of times yet no orthodox scientific journal will give it the time of day to even say we need to study it further but in fact bash it endlessly.

If you want to "believe" a self-made journal is good enough.

After doing some further research on this I think Boncho is right and this looks to not have any real credibility. To bad maybe we should start hanging these guys who make these types of claims.
The station of 420MW adopts the combined cycle technology and uses natural gas. The investment cost €275mil. and was constructed in 2,5 years employing 400 people.
Worth mentioning is that the group invested more than €2bil. in thermal plants and in 2011 no new investments will be implemented.

Here is the thing, I can't stand these guys, for one, I've done over 40 or so hours of research into them because of the claims that were being made, and nothing validates them but lots of questions are raised... Number two, is that I can't figure out what is going on exactly. And trust me there is more to the story. You can u2u me if you want to know my opinion.
Here is an interview with Rossi from this Wednesday on Coast to Coast. He says there are no investors that he sold everything and put all his own money into this so no one can claim he is trying to scam them.
I found this interesting because if this was a scam why bring it to a major University, put all your own money into it, and then come on Coast to Coast and say its do or die?
MILAN How to become rich and famous by buying toxic waste by companies and unglazed, but turning them into an unlikely oil Rossi brand. It 's a very contemporary story, a story of garbage, a billion and a great ability to exploit the' green wave. For years, Andrea Rossi, 39, owner of Petrol Dragon, inventor, author of a book on how to extract gasoline or diesel fuel from waste, has made a fortune.
They say the Guardia di Finanza: Our investigations have allowed to establish that the so-called oil that came from Caponago never took place in the market. Without the analysis showed that the substance is a mixture of untreated toxic waste containing harmful chemical solvents and highly accentuated with the presence of chlorine and sulfuric acid. In short, a bombshell highly dangerous.
Rossi and a number of companies linked to him Recalled toxic waste and for this they were paid around 400 pounds per kilogram.
And he added a curious detail: the best customers of the Dragon Petrol included a paper mill in the province of Frosinone, that between January '1991 and March' in 1992 had acquired 600 tons of fuel self-sufficient. Too bad that the factory had stopped production since '90.
The website Cold Fusion Now is reporting about a recent interview conducted by James Martinez with physicist and researcher, Dr. Edmund Storms, formerly of the Los Alamos National Laboratory who is commenting on Andrea Rossi’s cold fusion technology. He has recently returned from the ICCF-16 conference in India where researchers in the field of low energy nuclear reaction discuss the latest research in the field.
Storms makes some interesting statements on the importance of Rossi’s technology, and is of the belief that it is a significant breakthrough which can have far reaching effects in the world of energy production. Here are some of his comments.
“It’s a major step. It doesn’t change the reality, the reality had already been established, but it has moved the debate from the laboratory into an industrial environment, and it’s put the phenomenon on the map now . . .
“We’ve arrived. It’s interesting we’ve arrived in a different car than we thought we were. Cold fusion started out using deuterium and palladium, and then Rossi found that it worked quite well in nickel and light hydrogen . . .
“No, it didn’t surprise me. It’s quite, what would I call it, simple justice. The system absolutely needs this, and suddenly it’s available. I guess it took both happening at the same time to change minds.
You have to be desperate enough to want to believe that this is real, and then you have to have a device that puts so much energy out that you cannot ignore it, and you marry those two things together, and the skeptics are just blown away.”
Cold Fusion Now includes much more of what Dr. Storms says on the topic, and also includes a link to the full audio podcast of the interview.
The field which is conventionally called "Cold Fusion" has grown and now should be called "Chemically-Assisted Nuclear Reactions" or "Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions," depending on the emphasis one wishes to apply. The claims are supported by a wide range of anomalous behaviors involving nuclear reactions and energy production. Many methods and chemical environments have been found to produce consistent patterns of behavior. This paper will only address the claims for heat production using the electrolytic technique with palladium as the cathode and heavy-water as the electrolyte, as was originally used by Pons and Fleischmann.(6) Also evaluated will be the nuclear reaction which is proposed to be the source of this claimed anomalous energy. A broader understanding can be obtained by reading several reviews which are available.(2, 3, 4)
Dr. Edmund Storms
He would gain much more credibility if
he would only allow the NRL to test his machine, but I doubt that will
happen. I do not understand why, but he does not want more independent tests
of his machine. It sure makes him look bad, doesn't it? (Rothwell)
Rossi's goal is to keep people confused so that no one discovers his secret until he gets a patent. I suspect a lot is going on under the radar using NDA that allow Rossi to contact investors and the US patent office. (Storms)
1. However I still see no motive here for scam.
2. He says he sold everything he has to finance this.
3. Even if it were money he made in previous scams why sink it into this when he is not asking for any money or investors etc.?
