That may be an odd headline, but let me explain. If Rossi and the group evaluating the measurements of Rossi’s 1MW E-Cat plant have not conducted a calibration run, then it’s hard to trust the instrumentation used. By losing efficiency, it is suggestive that there truly is excess heat being generated by the plant. Two reactor sub-units have now demonstrated this loss in efficiency at different times. To my mind, the best outcome would be that the other 2 would also lose efficiency. Even better, all four lose efficiency completely so that the COP becomes 1.
As I have watched this test unfold, the report of declining efficiency has provided the best reason for optimism about the outcome to my mind. It’s also an indication of honesty on the part of Andrea Rossi. He has been willing to report problems and progress, which I find encouraging.

The 1 MW E-Cat is stable, but we are noticing a decrease of the efficiency in one reactor, probably due to the charge: this is very interesting and we are monitoring this fact very carefully.
Time: 08.05 a.m. of Wed Dec 30st :
E-Cat 1 MW: another reactor shows a decrease of efficiency, but still has enough COP. The charges are starting to give evidence of consumption. Very interesting to study the phenomenon from now on.
E-Cat X: works, makes heat and electricity, is very promising.
