Nobody should deny the fantastic LENR potential anymore. Although there are many independent researchers who were able to produce excess energy from Low Energy Nuclear Reaction in theory, Rossi was the first able to come up with a commercial product, so it’s only natural that his device is either highly acclaimed or highly discredited.
Further more, speculations upon the device boosted up, shortly after the announcement by Leonardo Corporation that they are getting ready to manufacture a million Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) powered E-Cat devices for home use, before the end of this year.
This has prompted cold fusion enthusiasts to suggest that the time has come to explore the numerous applications for the new LENR energy system. It is believed that by tapping the immense power stored in a small amount of Nickel metal, plenty of energy concerns could be addressed.
Andrea Rossi is also a well known environmental advocate, so there was only one step left before linking the E-Cat, high speed trains and a railway system into a fascinating future transportation system – more sustainable, more efficient and, frankly, quite possible.
In this specific case, the heat energy generated by the Rossi energy catalyzer could be easily converted to electricity or steam and power. It could then be utilized to drive high speed trains (such as the TGV or the Shinkansen).
Running at speeds of up to 300 km/h, bullet trains are known for punctuality (most trains depart on time to the second), comfort (quite silent couches with spacious seats), efficiency and safety.
A lot of the technology behind these trains is an improved application of mature standard gauge rail technology using overhead electrification. Their modern steam turbines are a lot more efficient than the older versions, so that – at least in theory – they could be designed to work with the Rossi Energy Catalyzer.
Superfast or faster than the bullet? Can the ECat make this possible?
