Andrea Rossi is revealing even more details about the origin of his ecat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology and the work he did before he developed ecat. In a response to an email from somebody named Brian, Rossi described some of his previous work. Rossi also stated that he had tried to use a thermoelectric technology to make power with the heat from the exhaust of Diesel generators but it apparently didn’t work.

Rossi Reveals more Details about Work before ecat
Swiss Company has applied for LENR Patent in USA
Here’s an intriguing development the Swiss company Stmmicrolectronics S.R.L. has applied for a United States Patent on a low energy nuclear reaction process. On Feb. 25, 2013, the company filed U.S. patent application US20130243143 A1.
The device is described as a: “Reactor for energy generation through low energy nuclear reactions (LENR) between hydrogen and transition metals and related method of energy generation.” The patent application clearly indicates that the purpose of the reactor is the generation of energy.
Utilities worried because Big Corporations are unplugging from the Grid
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that utilities are worried because an increasing number of large corporations are unplugging their operations from the electric grid. Instead in a development that’s good news for alternate energy sources like low energy nuclear reaction (LENR), large companies are beginning to generate their own electricity.
More and more large companies are generating their own power because of costs and the perceived unreliability of the grid. Even some electric company executives are worried about the trend. Nick Akins the CEO at American Electric Power Company in Ohio told the Journal he’s scared that he’ll become the “caretaker of a museum.”
Brillouin Energy hopes to Start Licensing LENR Technology to Manufacturers and Power Companies Next Year
Berkley, Calif., based Brillouin Energy Corporation hopes to start licensing its low energy nuclear reaction technology to manufacturers and power companies next year. Brillouin’s CEO Bob George and President and Chief Technology Officer Robert E. Godes made that announcement in an interview on Gary Hendershot’s Smart Scarecrow webcast on September 12.
The interview was apparently the launch of an effort to raise venture capital to finance the next round of Brillouin’s efforts to develop a working LENR boiler technology. The technology is currently being tested at the SRI International laboratory in California by Dr. Michael McKubre. Brillouin has also been able to raise $20 million in venture capital.
The LINUX of LENR, an Open Sourced Energy Solution from the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project
New details about two major low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) research efforts are available. The Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project is reporting significant progress in its open sourced effort to commercialize Francesco Celani’s LENR technology.
The idea behind the Project is to create a LINUX of LENR, LINUX is an open sourced operating system available for anybody to use. Anybody can put it on her computer and any designer can create Apps and software for it. Even though LINUX itself is given away free it has led to some to great fortunes, there’s a little thing called Google (you know the company with the $846-$850 a share stock). Google uses Linux as does the software company Red Hat.
Rossi e-cat undergoing tests in the United States
Andrea Rossi’s e-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) device is undergoing extended testing in the United States, the inventor revealed. Rossi didn’t say where in the USA the testing was being done or who was conducting the tests. He did state that no information about the tests will be released until they are completed. Three e-cat units were shipped to the U.S. in April.
Extensive changes and improvements to the e-cat technology will be undertaken during this testing. That means whoever has purchased the e-cat the mysterious partner Rossi has discussed in the past might have taken the technology away from Rossi and turned it over to somebody else to experiment with.
Defkalion Demonstrates LENR Device via Streaming Video
Defkalion really impressed the crowd at the 18th annual International Conference on Cold Fusion (ICCF) last week with a streaming video of a demonstration of its Hyperion low energy nuclear reaction device. The LENR device was tested in Milan, Italy, the conference was held at the University of Missouri in Columbia, Mo.
Sterling D. Allen and others reported that the scientists at the conference were really impressed by the video and Defklaion’s demonstration. The demonstration was a little more credible than the test Andrea Rossi had performed on his e-cat device earlier this year.
US Navy has been granted an LENR Patent
The rumors of the demise of the US Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command or SPAWAR’s low energy nuclear reaction research program appear to be greatly exaggerated. The research organization is not only still actively working on cold fusion, it’s been granted an LENR patent.
United States Patent 8,419,919 granted on April 16, 2013 is for a method of applying current to an electrochemical cell for charging. The method utilizes palladium and an electrode dissolved in heavy water. The cathode may contain another metal such as gold that doesn’t absorb deuterium. That sounds like an LENR method.
Obama Believes Climate Change is Critical but Doesn’t Mention LENR
President Obama has finally decided that climate change is a critical issue and he should do something about it. With reelection safely behind him, the President has set new limits on the amount of carbon dioxide power plants can emit. Unfortunately Obama didn’t mention any new technologies such as low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) that could replace coal burning power plants completely and eliminate the problem in the first place in his speech.
Update from Around the World of Cold Fusion
Not much news is coming out of the world of cold fusion besides the announcement that Hydro Fusion would like to have a utility test Andrea Rossi’s ecat low energy nuclear reaction or (LENR) device in Sweden. Rossi’s publication of limited ecat test results has spurred a lot of controversy and reaction but what are his various competitors up to?
I looked around the web and found that Brillouin, Defkalion, and Nichenergy haven’t made any new announcements lately. None of these companies seem to have the level of progress Andrea Rossi has or at least haven’t announced it.
