Andrea Rossi has stated on the Journal of Nuclear Physics that he and his team have noticed a production of electricity in the operation of the E-Cat. This, of course, has the E-Cat community excited, and those attempting to reproduce the Rossi Effect strive for more information. Just last week, Steven Karels, who contributes quite frequently on the JONP, asked:
“Since your team is still studying the production of electrical force, I can conclude that you have not dismissed it as an errant measurement nor as a trivial effect.
“With this assumption, I can then project either that the effect could be significant and the future might hold an eCat ‘electric battery’ with some thermal output or the electricity generated through some future process using this effect could be fed back to control the unit or at least decrease the effective COP of an eCat or surrounding eCats.
“Without commenting on the actual situation, is my assumption and logic correct?”
That very same day, Frank Acland – another contributor to the forum and owner of E-Cat World – asked:
“Your continued interest in direct electricity production from the E-Cat is intriguing. Without going into any detail, do you see the potential for this phenomenon to be significant enough to produce useful amounts of electricity?”
Rossi responded to the two with:
“It is soon to say anything solid. We are studying the phenomenon: by the way, today I have to make measurements in this field, but, as I said, in this period of R&D and validation I cannot answer to this kind of questions.”
