    The Peak Oil Crisis: Transitioning to Cold Fusion By Tom Whipple Wednesday, November 16 2011 02:45:44 PM Events move quickly these days. Two weeks ago we were watching Bologna, Italy where an entrepreneur and a retired physics professor claimed to have discovered the Holy Grail of energy - cold fusion or as it is now known: Low Energy Nuclear Reactions. At the time, there was (and still is) widespread concern that the various demonstrations of an energy-producing devices were a scam as the developers, for commercial reasons, refused to give outsiders access to their inner workings . If you...

    The Renewable Energy Disaster ^ | Nov 2011 | Christopher Calder
    The Fusion Revolution When the first human animal figured out how to make fire at will, life on earth changed forever. The fictional character Sherlock Holmes once said that "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth." Using that logic, I have come to the conclusion that fossil fuels will soon become obsolete, and human history will again be dramatically altered. A total switchover to fusion power will take decades, but basic economics tells us that fusion reactors will win in the marketplace over their more costly competitors. Imagine a clean new world...

    NI And The eCat Money Trail admin on November 11, 2011 — 68 Comments Peswiki’s scoop on the National Instruments relationship with Rossi is a left-field slam that forces you to think anew. I have a feeling that AR has more of the same in store. He is doing things his own way, sticking a finger to those who tie themselves in knots trying to figure the trick, the small army with big voices who attack anyone associated with the inventor as in-on-the-scam or incompetent. Poor NI do not know what they have let themselves in for. They will...

    Italian scientist Andrea Rossi has spent the past year giving demonstrations of a device that he claims can generate large amounts of energy due to a little-understood nuclear process. His latest demonstration, performed on October 28th, has attracted some of the most mainstream media attention yet, with coverage by outlets including Fox News, Forbes, and MSNBC, among others. But the big question still seems to be whether Rossi’s E-Cat (energy catalyzer) device is a huge breakthrough or a huge scam. What’s making the answer so difficult to determine is the lack of a clear, scientific explanation of what exactly is...

    According to a slide presentation given by NASA engineer Michael A.

According to Nelson, a NASA engineer who investigates low-energy nuclear reactions and space applications, Rossi did not run his demonstration long enough to prove his extraordinary claim. At the Sept. 22, 2011 LENR Workshop at NASA Glenn Research Center, Nelson explained that Rossi “would need to run [his experiment] for eight hours or more with a small E-Cat and...

    The Science Behind the E-Cat Cold Fusion Reactor I was initially very dubious when hearing about E-Cat, a cold fusion reactor supposedly invented by Andrea Rossi. The first 1 megawatt unit was reportedly sold to a secret customer two days ago. Mainstream press has mostly ignored the invention so far. However, I found out there is a surprisingly rich history of scientific research and experiments about the mechanism it employs, nickel–hydrogen fusion. Evidence proving that the device is working keeps piling up and up. This is to a point that I am now personally convinced that this is one...

    Andrea Rossi says his new machine fuses nickel and hydrogen at room temperature creating almost unlimited energy . But there is one problem - many scientists claim it defies the very laws of physics. Several high-profile demonstrations of 'cold fusion' have been proven to be hoaxes in the past - and no one can adequately explain how or why it might work . The United States Department of Energy the U.S. Patent Office say the process is impossible because physics rules out the possibility of room-temperature nuclear fusion . But Rossi's E-Cat machine can allegedly do it, and he...

Andrea Rossi's one-megawatt-capable E-Cat cold fusion device has been tested in Bologna, Italy; and the unknown customer, who ran the test, is apparently happy. There were some issues, so it couldn't be run at full power in self-looped mode, but what it did do was plenty impressive. It ran for 5.5 hours producing 470 kW, while in self-looped mode.

    Here are the analyses of the latest E-cat test Av: Mats Lewan Publicerad idag, 07:30 Three extensive analyses has been made of data from the test of Andrea Rossi’s E-cat on October 6. Two point to a clearly anomalous heat production, while the third leaves the question open . here) . Interest in the latest test of Andrea Rossi’s energy catalyzer has exceeded that in any previous test. The result has been discussed intensely internationally. Does Rossi’s apparatus generate net energy. If so, how much . The shortcomings of the test measurement methods were clear, though significant improvements had...

    Energy Catalyser: Potential game changer October 19, 2011 BR RESEARCH In 1985 the Norwegian music band, "A-ha" released a music video entitled "Take on me" which showed lead singer Morten Harket reminiscing over his love life as he interacts with moving images of his lover on a sheet of paper. While the song became an instant hit; the concept of an interactive multimedia device only received a baffled response of uh huh from viewers. Fast forward to the present age and any self-respecting techie will greet mention of such technology with an unimpressed duh. Bottom line technology is evolving...

    Mark Gibbs on E-Cat October 18, 2011 2:24 P.M. By Reihan Salam At Network World, Mark Gibbs has a column on E-Cat, a low-energy nuclear reaction technology developed by the Italian inventor Andrea Rossi. It sounds, and most likely is, too good to be true. Gibbs projects what might unfold if E-Cat works as promised: Let’s assume Rossi’s E-Cat works. What then? From the demonstrated prototypes it appears that you could build E-Cats small enough to power a car or a house. Bundle a lot of them together and you could power a truck, a ship or an office...

    Over on Network World where I’ve had a gig as a columnist for about 18 years, my Backspin column I wrote this week about a power generation system called E-Cat that is to be tested on October 28th . If you’ve missed the recent brouhaha over the E-Cat (which stands for Energy Catalyzer), you’re missing out on a three ring circus over a technology that will either change everything or change nothing because what is promised is, in theory, power too cheap to be worth metering .

    New Analysis of October 6th E-Cat Test Demonstrates Validity of the E-Cat October 17, 2011 By admin Recently on the vortex-l discussion board there appeared an analysis done by Bob Higgins — scientist of Motorola solutions — of the October 6th E-Cat test in Bologna. From my point of view it is a very deep and extensive analysis that clearly demonstrates a positive outcome of the test despite some known weaknesses. Although a lot of things could have been improved, the strength of the effect shown was so big that the effect of important flaws still remained only at...

    Cheap power: An overnight revolution o Mark Gibbs 14.10.2011 kl 17:51 | Network World (US) In a couple of weeks the world could be forever changed by power too cheap to meter. Or not. Every now and then along comes a technology that is revolutionary and changes everything. But a very few of these new technologies cause fast change. Mostly they seep out of the lab, into the arms of early adopters, and then ooze out into the world in general. For example, the first internal combustion engine was (arguably) the Pyréolophore invented by Nicéphore and Claude Niépce in 1807,...

    Are we on the Brink of an Energy Revolution? Andrea Rossi to Build 1MW Power Plant Written by Al Fin Thursday, 13 October 2011 12:45 Andrea Rossi and partner Professor Sergio Focardi recently announced to the world that they have created a cold fusion device which produces more energy than it consumes. As you can imagine this has drawn a great deal of interest from the scientific community as well as a huge number of skeptics . One way to prove your sceptics wrong is to actually do what you say you are going to do. Once the deed...

    Data Indicates That Rossi’s October 6th E-Cat Demonstration Showed Nuclear Reaction October 10, 2011 By admin As the dust clears and the chatter subsides, and we take a look at the facts pertaining to Andrea Rossi’s October 6th demonstration of the energy catalyzer, data collected indicates that unless Rossi has been able to rig an extremely sophisticated trick (which no one who attended the demo has accused him of) he indeed managed to show that he has discovered a new source of nuclear power. One of the most clear representations of the data collected at the test can be...

    A short announcement was made on Andrea Rossi’s web site today: Dear Don Witcher: The test will be made on the 28th of October. I will give details within a week. Warm Regards, A.R. We have a date now, but no place yet. It wouldn’t surprise me if the location is Bologna, Italy — since that is where the plant is currently located. It would take a lot of time and expense to move it from its current location, and if he has it running stably at the moment it could be risky to move the whole thing at this...
