Andrea Rossi has recently announced that he hopes to release his domestic e-cat in the market next year. A few weeks after, he provided some specifics about the actual size of the domestic e-cat which is currently under certification tests. Designed to provide heat for a regular household, the home e-cat will be intuitively small and will fit easily in different places. However, changes may be required on the base of the certification requirements. The home e-cat’s market design, on the other hand, is yet to be finalized and largely dependent on the constant updates that the Italian inventor has been doing in his new technology.
The version of the e-cat for home heating purposes is totally different from the industrial e-cat where the heat production unit fits into the shipping container. Home e-cat measures 12 inches by 12 inches by 6 inches. The dimensions may change due to certificators’ feedback. With all the information given by Rossi, it seems to appear that the e-cat will be hooked up to bypass any existing heater, and controlled by the thermostat. According to Rossi, during the operation of the e-cat, the consumption of a fuel, of a traditional fuel, will be automatically reduced. The latest information also stated that refueling of the e-cat can only be done by a certified operator.
The breakthrough e-cat LENR device of Rossi is too good to be true. Yes, the world could benefit from its unlimited potential. This eco-friendly reactor could also change the lives of the people. But then again, emergent technology always catches the imagination. In 1989, the cold fusion or LENR work of Fleischmann and Pons was not duplicated but it certainly served as an inspiration for those people who follow the footsteps of the ambitious duo. Rossi is among those people who continue to study and research cold fusion and LENR.
