As promised, the report of third party testing on the Energy Catalyzer (E-Cat) has been released and available for download on e-cat.com. It will be interesting to see how many scientists view this report. On reading the report, one will find that the authors took care at every step to do calculations that underestimated the power output of the device when there were areas of uncertainty.
Another good thing about this report is that the scientists are clearly identified along with their institutional affiliations.
- Giuseppe Levi Bologna University, Bologna, Italy
- Evelyn Foschi Bologna, Italy
- Torbjörn Hartman, Bo Höistad, Roland Pettersson and Lars Tegnér Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden
- Hanno Essén Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden
After reading the report, I feel this invalidates many of my previous concerns about Rossi’s work, and certainly builds the excitement of a future powered by LENR. In conclusion, the authors of the report note:
Even from the standpoint of a “blind” evaluation of volumetric energy density, if we consider the whole volume of the reactor core and the most conservative figures on energy production, we still get a value of (7.93 ± 0.8) 102 MJ/Liter that is one order of magnitude higher than any conventional source.
According to the press release on e-cat.com, there will be an upcoming test starting this summer and running for 6 months with one of the devices. It is good to see this work moving forward, and this is exactly what Andrea Rossi needs to get his business off the ground.
