In One Week’s Time, We’ll All Know

One week from tomorrow Rossi is expected to have his mysterious customer begin the testing of the 1 MW plant.
It had been stated from the beginning that Rossi would only be paid for the plant after the Customer validated that it worked as described.
The formal testing was to take approximately 2 months to complete after which the Customer would either accept the product (and pay Rossi) or reject it.
Originally it was to have been Defkalion Green Technologies as the customer and the tests were to be in located in Xanthi, Greece. This was also to be the site of the manufacturing of the E-Cats.
But things changed and Defkalion fell out of the picture as there were some contractual issues that had arose between Rossi and Defkalion.
Around the same time it was announced by Rossi that a 1 MW plant would be built in the US.
Speculation was high that it would be for the US client that AmpEnergo had a hand in bringing to the table.
That customer was to be a very large and powerful entity.
It was speculated that because of the connections that the key people of AmpEnergo had with the Department of Energy, it would be a significant player.
Things have changed once again.
As we know, the only 1 MW plant is still in Bologna. Unless Rossi had some clandestine operation secretly building a second plant in the U.S. at the same time as the one in Italy, it would appear that next week's customer validation testing will commence in Italy.
Andrea Rossi had mentioned having the event covered by live video streaming. That would be a plus.
We who have been following this from the beginning are anxious beyond words.
Scant media coverage has been following this possibly historic event. There was the Wired piece and the recent articles in Forbes, Computer World and Network World. BTW: All three were from the same author - Mark Gibbs. Mark had done more than anyone thus far in spreading the news to the masses. Thanks Mark!
Aside from these, little else is to be had.
Will there be a new world next Friday or will it be the end of another mundane week?
Time is running out on Rossi’s initial promise of inaugurating the plant by the end of October and the world is eager for a conclusion.


  1. IF it is true, then WOW:

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    1. When will the first 1 MW plant that works for 24/7, 365 days a year start up?

    2. What would happen if you completely cut off all power to the E-Cat, including the RFG?

    Best Regards,


    Andrea Rossi
