Initial reports of the ongoing test of Rossi’s ECat in Italy are positive. The 1MW unit was also on display.
Having followed this story from the beginning, maintaining The Future is not Green, but Grey I congratulate Mr Rossi and all involved.
Lets see, some likely, and not so likely, predictions:
- There will be a massive fire-sale of renewable energy products that have been underwritten by Government spending of billions of dollars, as it plays an decreasingly important role in Australia’s energy mix.
- CSIRO renewable energy researchers commit collective intellectual Seppuku.
- Within 10 years LENR will supply the majority of energy supply at one tenth of the cost.
- The US economy rises again on the backs of a new technology, as the patent holder, Rossi, and supporters of the technology are affiliated with the US,
- Massive geopolitical shift, as economies cut the UN and traditional oil-producing countries adrift.
- Technologies based on massive power inputs, like desalination and irrigation on massive scales, become practical.
- Climate scientists think up new scary scenarios based on excessive release of latent heat.
