When you think of a power plant, what mental picture comes to mind? Most people think of large complexes with strangely shaped buildings covering acres of land. Coal burning plants have furnaces that must be constantly monitored for correct function, and the steam produced supplies power to the surrounding areas. Nuclear power plants have a signature shape all their own, that is recognizable at a distance. The nuclear power also produces steam, which is used to create electricity.
The industrial sized E-Cat fits into a shipping container. Of course, this is not the entire plant; it is only the heat production unit. But even at that, the container does not take nearly as much space as the heat producing section of the traditional power plant.
The home E-Cat designed to provide heat for a regular household will be intuitively small and will fit easily in different places. But more importantly, its market design will, most likely, revolve around the constant updates in Andrea Rossi’s technology.
Considering that none of the E-Cats emit fumes, smoke, or vapors, and there is no waste other than copper, with a little iron and zinc, this will be one of the most eco-friendly sources of power, and not as unsightly as miles and miles of huge windmills or solar panels. The efficiency of function and reduced actual footprint will be a welcomed, and useful, change.
