Andrea Rossi – E-Cat – The New Elforsk Statement in English with Analysis

All of those who believe in Andrea Rossi, all of those who think Rossi is some kind of savior who will “save the world,” all of those who are disciples of Rossi, say the same thing — everyone should be looking forward — looking to the next bit of news or the results of the next test or demo. We say that is pure PROPAGANDA. THAT is exactly what keeps these types of scams alive. THAT is exactly what the scammers, like Rossi, want you to think and believe, instead of thinking for yourself. All those who only look forward in these types of scams will only see more false hope, more lies and falsehoods, more money going into the scammers’ pockets. What everyone should be doing is looking backward — to find out how the world of free energy and cold fusion/LENR arrived at the sad state of affairs it is currently in at this time.

Very shortly, Rossi claims, the report about a six-month long hot-cat test is soon to be published. We will just have to wait and see how far they want to stick their necks out we guess. Moreover, since Andrea Rossi is a well-known and confirmed liar, teller of tall tales, convicted criminal, and con artist, buyer beware.

A brief message to the authors of any future report on any test of any e-cat by the crook Andrea Rossi:

  • If you put your name on a paper analyzing one of the e-cat tests or demos, and in the paper there are claims lacking in provability by others, i.e. (requires the reader to “trust” the authors), your paper is worthless to all but a scammer and in our opinion, you become an accomplice with Rossi and a partner in his scam.
  • If you put your name on a paper analyzing one of the e-cat tests or demos, and in the paper there are outrageous claims of free energy, and the testing procedure did not eliminate all of the possible ways the demo or test might have been falsified, your paper is worthless to all but a scammer and in our opinion, you become an accomplice with Rossi and a partner in his scam.
  • If you put your name on a paper analyzing one of the e-cat tests or demos and claim the e-cat is, or even the possibility of the e-cat being, a cold fusion/LENR device, and you do not prove in your paper that some type of cold fusion/LENR did in fact take place, your paper is worthless to all but a scammer and in our opinion, you become an accomplice with Rossi and a partner in his scam.
  • If you put your name on a paper analyzing one of the e-cat tests or demos and a truly independent third party cannot perform their own test to verify the claims in your report, your paper is worthless to all but a scammer and in our opinion, you become an accomplice with Rossi and a partner in his scam.

Elforsk fortsätter att följa utvecklingen

Elforsk continues to follow developments

SR Vetenskapsradion har under veckan uttalat kritik mot Elforsks undersökningar av det påstådda fenomen som brukar benämnas LERN – Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (kärnreaktioner med låg energi). Undersökningarna började år 2012 när Elforsk blev tillfrågad av en grupp svenska forskare om att stödja utvärderingen av en uppfinning kallad Energikatalysatorn. Den uppgavs ha en värmeproduktion som vida översteg det som kan förklaras med konventionella förbränningsreaktioner.

SR Vetenskapsradion [SR Science Radio] has during this week expressed criticism of Elforsk’s investigations of the alleged phenomenon that is usually called LENR – Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (reactions with low energy). The investigations began in 2012 when Elforsk was asked by a group of Swedish researchers to support the evaluation of an invention called the Energy Catalyzer. It was alleged to have a heat output far exceeding that which can be explained by conventional combustion reactions.

Utvärderingen genomfördes av svenska och italienska forskare (Giuseppe Levi och Evelyn Foschi, Universitet i Bologna, Torbjörn Hartman, Bo Höistad, Roland Pettersson och Lars Tegnér, Uppsala Universitet samt Hanno Essén, KTH) där resultaten publicerades i rapporten »Indication of anomalous heat energy production in a reactor device». Mätningarna indikerade en värmeproduktion som inte enbart kunde förklaras med konventionell förbränning.

The evaluation was conducted by the Swedish and Italian researchers (Giuseppe Levi, and Evelyn Foschi, University of Bologna, Ann Hartman, Bo Höistad, Roland Pettersson and Lars Tegnér, Uppsala University, and Hanno Essén, KTH) where the results were published in the report “Indication of anomalous heat energy production in a reactor device”. The measurements indicated a heat production that could not be exclusively explained with conventional combustion.

Baserat på resultaten från dessa mätningar valde Elforsk att gå vidare och beställde en översiktlig informationssammanställning beträffande LERN. Resultaten publicerades i Elforsks rapport 13:90, som finns tillgänglig på Elforsks webbplats.

Based on the results of those measurements Elforsk chose to go further and ordered a synoptic pooling of information relating to LENR. The results were published in Elforsk’s report 13:90, which is available at Elforsk’s website.

LENR är ett omdiskuterat fenomen som fått ökad uppmärksamhet under de senaste två till tre åren. När ett dussin företag framför att de ägnar sig åt kommersialisering av LENR-tekniken kan detta möjligen indikera att något oväntat upptäckts och att denna upptäckt i framtiden eventuellt kan påverka energitillförseln i samhället.

LENR is a controversial phenomenon that has received increased attention during the last two to three years. When a dozen companies have become engaged in the commercialization of LENR-technology this may possibly indicate that something unexpected has been discovered and that this discovery in the future may affect the energy supply of society.

Elforsk är noga med att framhålla att vi i nuläget inte har tillräckligt underlag för att kunna ta ställning till om fenomenet LENR existerar eller inte. Däremot har Elforsk bedömt att det är angeläget att översiktligt följa utvecklingen och att i någon mån bidra till att öka insikten och klarheten kring dessa frågor.

Elforsk is careful to point out that we do not currently have sufficient information to be able to take a position on whether the phenomenon of LENR exists or not. However, Elforsk has decided that it is important to follow the developments in general and to contribute in a small way to increase understanding and clarity on these issues.

Det ligger i Elforsks uppdrag att följa pågående forskning och utveckling för att kunna förbereda företagen inom energisektorn på tänkbara genombrott samt bygga nödvändig kunskap för att ifrågasätta eller bejaka vidare utveckling. Av detta skäl kommer Elforsk även fortsättningsvis att följa utvecklingen inom LENR-området.

It is part of Elforsk’s mission to monitor ongoing research and development in order to be able to prepare companies in the energy sector on possible breakthroughs, as well as building necessary knowledge to challenge or affirm further development. For this reason, Elforsk will continue to follow developments in the LENR-area.

OUR ANALYSIS

SR Vetenskapsradion [SR Science Radio] has during this week expressed criticism of Elforsk’s investigations of the alleged phenomenon that is usually called LENR – Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (reactions with low energy). The investigations began in 2012 when Elforsk was asked by a group of Swedish researchers to support the evaluation of an invention called the Energy Catalyzer. It was alleged to have a heat output far exceeding that which can be explained by conventional combustion reactions.

[As always, by Rossi’s design we might add, the people involved in this farce cannot separate legitimate scientific research and the exploits of fraudsters and scammers, such as Rossi and Defkalion that have taken over the cold fusion/LENR spotlight.

  • First of all Elforsk says they had investigated LENR and was criticized for it.
  • Second Elforsk says their investigations centered on the scammer Andrea Rossi and his e-cat.

Well, we can state as a fact that Elforsk has NEVER been involved in any investigation of LENR as they claim. Anyone who investigates the e-cat device is NOT investigating LENR, but is investigating a fraud and a scam and their investigation should reflect that, and clearly and openly prove whether in fact the device works as claimed or not. Not one test or demo of an e-cat has ever proven the claims of Rossi, Focardi, and Levi to be true, NOT ONE.]

The evaluation was conducted by the Swedish and Italian researchers (Giuseppe Levi, and Evelyn Foschi, University of Bologna, Ann Hartman, Bo Höistad, Roland Pettersson and Lars Tegnér, Uppsala University, and Hanno Essén, KTH) where the results were published in the report “Indication of anomalous heat energy production in a reactor device”. The measurements indicated a heat production that could not be exclusively explained with conventional combustion.

[Clearly Elforsk has chosen the wrong crowd to do their investigations. This crew of people who were involved in the “investigation” was already believers and disciples of Andrea Rossi and already believed the e-cat works as claimed, and unbelievably most had already been involved with Rossi on many prior occasions. If Elforsk really had the ability to think with clarity and Elforsk really wanted to find out if Rossi and Levi’s claims were true, they would hire a truly independent, third party, a university or impeccable lab who will stand behind the test with their good name. And another thing, why investigate the hot-cat? Why not investigate the original e-cat, which Rossi and his partners are claiming have been for sale since November 2011? Better yet, why doesn’t Elforsk BUY one of these 1MW units that Rossi, Roger Green in Australia, and Hydro Fusion are claiming is for sale right now and test it in a real world application?]

Based on the results of those measurements Elforsk chose to go further and ordered a synoptic pooling of information relating to LENR. The results were published in Elforsk’s report 13:90, which is available at Elforsk’s website.

[As we already said, Elforsk does not have the ability to separate LENR from scammers like Rossi and Defkalion. So Elforsk used measurements from a fraudulent demo and test to justify more investigation and reporting? That does not make sense; their own report was not even conclusive.]

LENR is a controversial phenomenon that has received increased attention during the last two to three years. When a dozen companies have become engaged in the commercialization of LENR-technology this may possibly indicate that something unexpected has been discovered and that this discovery in the future may affect the energy supply of society.

[What exactly does it mean for a company to “become engaged in the commercialization of LENR technology”? According to Elforsk, this just happened in the last couple of years. What do we have for examples? Let us make a list:

  • Offer a claimed LENR device for sale? Show us one company that has sold even one working LENR test cell, or a working device that produces electricity or heat from LENR. There are none.
  • Raise money for R&D? LENR companies have been doing that since 1989, nothing new there, that does not mean commercialization.
  • Actually do R&D? LENR companies have been doing that since 1989, nothing new there, that does not mean commercialization.
  • Put on fraudulent demos over and over that never prove anything? How can that be commercialization?

We could continue, but by using normal examples of normal businesses for comparison, we cannot find one thing anyone is doing in the LENR field except for fraud or R&D. There is no commercialization.]

Elforsk is careful to point out that we do not currently have sufficient information to be able to take a position on whether the phenomenon of LENR exists or not. However, Elforsk has decided that it is important to follow the developments in general and to contribute in a small way to increase understanding and clarity on these issues.

[The only thing Elforsk has contributed to this farce is to help finance a report that helped put more money into the pocket of the scammer and fraudster Andrea Rossi. Just ask Industrial Heat, or Cherokee Investments. It is amazing to us that not only Elforsk, but many others, still think anything Andrea Rossi does still needs following.]

It is part of Elforsk’s mission to monitor ongoing research and development in order to be able to prepare companies in the energy sector on possible breakthroughs, as well as building necessary knowledge to challenge or affirm further development. For this reason, Elforsk will continue to follow developments in the LENR-area.

[If it is the mission of Elforsk to follow, finance R&D for, finance testing of, and publish information on a scam by Andrea Rossi, a confirmed liar, teller of tall tales, convicted criminal, and con artist, where is it going to stop? Are they going to follow every claim of free energy and provide the same level of support for them? What about magnet motors? What about motor generator sets? What about … the list is endless.]

In our opinion if the leadership of Elforsk wants to keep their jobs they should restrict their monitoring of research and development and possible breakthroughs in the energy sector to legitimate companies and stay away from scammers and fraudsters like Andrea Rossi and Defkalion.

Did you know Elforsk in their report also endorsed Defkalion?
