If the E-Cat was interesting before, it’s certainly gaining in interest now that scientists have independently verified that it works in a way that increases energy output. And while others are saying it’s impossible, it appears we may soon be looking at a world of free energy – at least that’s what the independent panel of scientists concluded. And Rossi and Focardi are now making a few announcements you wouldn’t expect from someone showcasing a hoax energy device, like letting a University have a model to independently and without supervision study it.
But how does the process work? That’s the million dollar question, and many are now saying even Rossi and Focardi don’t know. But as the E-Cat was analyzed, they found it could convert electricity producing little more than 300 watts into a full 2.6 kilowatt system. This may not sound impressive at first, but consider 300 watts is essentially the amount generated by a single solar panel meaning a house could basically run on one of the machines. If the machine proves to work in the way suggested by Rossi and Focardi, then eventually the system would replace all other means of power generation such as gasoline. Every car could be built with a cold fusion generator inside it, and every house could have one as well. In the end the system could even be made larger and allowed to generate power in even larger amounts, possibly even preserving the independent power infrastructure.
On April 19th and 28th at Bologna University, scientists analyzed the machine and found that 2,600 volts were coming out of the machine while only 300 watts were going in. The mysterious way the machine works makes it difficult to apply the science to any known physical phenomenon, but Rossi and Focardi are under the impression if it works, then it works – and we should be happy for it.
So when will we be seeing plants using this system in the United States? If Rossi and Focardi can find investors, they suggest a plant could be created in the United States as early as October of 2011.
But this is something scientists are not going to be taking lightly. The idea of free energy is so different from what science is used to these days, it may make the E-Cat all the more difficult to market even if it is genuine. But in the mean time, demonstrations of scientists such as the recent one at Bologna will at least help build the case of these two scientists who are attempting to change the world with a device they say will provide free energy for all.
But how much will it cost all of us if they do turn out to be real? Given the complexity and the potential for such a device, it seems likely the price will be outrageous at first, but gradually drop down to a more sustainable level in time. Of course until then it’s back to the gas pump.
