Cold Fusion Now Weekly Wrap + Updates

This week brought more action on the E-Cat front with promising news, and views, of a new test performed and insight into the one megawatt plant.

Our friends at Pure Energy Systems have a new write up published today which includes some posts by Andrea speaking about household units, finances, and future tests, one very important one in Uppsala . Check out their post here – “The Ultimate N-H Cold Fusion E-Cat Test”

“THE BELIEVERS” update:

Here’s an update from 137 Films on their upcoming documentary on Cold Fusion, called “The Believers”:

Update: 9/13/11

The Believers: Finishing Act III.  Cut to-date sent to POV for consideration for their upcoming 2012 season.  Assembling film festival calendar.  Partial screening at Northwestern University’s School of Engineering September 27.

Translation: They’re sending the as of edited version to the popular PBS based documentary series “POV” for a hopeful inclusion, which would be a huge deal for getting it seen thoughout the TV landscape. Though I’m guessing they are still leaving an editing gap open in Act III, for say, some end of October results. If anyone attends Northwestern and can go to the September 27th screening, let us know how it goes and what the discussion is like afterwards.

Finally, back to the E-Cat and the mystery partnership; while everyone has been talking the nostalgic giant NASA, have they been forgetting the current giant ruling the digital environment?  Here’s a bit about why Google could be the real partner – “Cheers and See You At Google Next Month”

Giuliano Bettini on the E-Cat facebook page adds to the above,

I add that the test early September with that customer, which has been much talk in here and said that they had done in the U.S. at NASA, were actually carried out in Bologna. Add that, from what I’ve been told, the test was successful: the American customer is satisfied and does not doubt that the E. Cat represents a new source of energy and not a scam, and I repeat is NOT a customer bamboozled in any way.
Mats Lewan has achieved its video after the test with the American customer had already been concluded (again positively)

All for now, stay well and add any updates/insights in the comments.

 

 

Rossi-Defkalion SPLIT

The Pure Energy Systems site has been all over this, providing updates and back and forth responses from this huge shake up between Andrea Rossi and Defkalion Green Technologies Inc. who Rossi had licensing agreements with for the Energy Catalyzer, but now it appears everything is suddenly OFF between the two.

Scroll down on the link above to the Rossi-Defkalion Controversy to see parts 1-4, and likely more to be added, on this ongoing, unfolding set back for the E-Cat.

In brief, as of now, reading Rossi’s response and Defkalion’s response:

-Rossi claims betrayal. Financial issues, denies personal issues. His attorneys have filed a suit. Claims Defkalion has never even built a working reactor of their own.

-Defkalion claims this is all due to “international pressures”, still believes in Rossi and seems to expect this to be remedied. (“Any project with such dire and earthmoving implications is bound to face difficulties – this was expected and has been, to-date, faced bravely and carefully by Defkalion Green Technologies.”) – Defkalion response excerpt.

-Meanwhile, Rossi says things will still move forward, and focus now is on, and in, the USA.  “I confirm that our 1 MW plant will be put in operation in the USA, after an agreement we made last week with one of the most important entities of the USA; “ – excerpt Rossi response.

And so it goes…
