An Interview with Andrea Rossi

     I listened to an interview with Andrea Rossi.  He is currently manufacturing 1Megawatt units. He hopes to have the smaller home unit certified in the U.S. by this fall and is in negotiation with Home depot to market it. He hopes to have a unit that sells between $1000 and $1500 dollars.  He wants to mass produce it in quantity of up to one million units the first year at a price to low for anyone to try to compete with him.  He sees it as an add-on to existing heating and cooling systems.  When consumers buy a unit, they can specify who maintains their present system.  Rossi's company will then contact the maintainer with installation info to see if they will install it. If not, his company will find someone else.  He is concentrating on marketing it in the U.S. and after that in Europe.  He says that original unit will be upgradable to the features that will become available in later units like generating electricity.  He thinks the technology will be used in boats and ships, but thinks it may take a long time to reach the automobile. Here is the link to the interview:
