Nikolas sends this additional information in:
The company’s name is Defkalion Green Technologies S.A. and their production facility will be in nearby Xanthi in Northern Greece. You can check their web site www.defkalion-energy.com The cost of a home unit is going to be 5000 EUR and it will provide both hot water, heating and (with a small addition) electricity. It will turn nickel into copper. That is the basic chemistry or alchemy (if you want) of the unit. It will need minute amounts of raw materials.
There is a lot of information in the press conference they held a couple of weeks ago, in Athens, unfortunately most is in the Greek language.
Only Rossi is talking in English. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXUgID260fY&feature=related

Last Saturday scientists at the University of Bologna, Italy, led by Andrea Rossi and Sergio Focardi announced that they developed a viable cold fusion process.
The demonstration device is capable of producing 12,400 W of heat power with an input of just 400W. A private invitation only press conference was held and the device was demonstrated to the 50 or so witnesses including scientists from the University of Bologna.
In addition, the scientists say they are already beyond the prototype stage and plan to start shipping units within 3 months with mass production by the end of 2011. Despite much higher ratios of output these first commercial devices would produce around 8 units of output for every 1 unit of input in order to safely and reliably operate.
Rossi also stated that they are working on a 1 megawatt facility comprised of 125 reactor modules.
The cost of the energy produced would be cheaper than 1 cent per kWh which is several orders of magnitude cheaper than any conventional fossil fuel energy sources.
Rossi said: “We have passed already the phase to convince somebody,” he wrote in his forum. “We are arrived to a product that is ready for the market. Our judge is the market. In this field the phase of the competition in the field of theories, hypothesis, conjectures etc etc is over. The competition is in the market. If somebody has a valid technology, he has not to convince people by chattering, he has to make a reactor that work and go to sell it, as we are doing.”
The demonstration was also attended by a representative of Defkalion Energy, based in Athens, who said that the company was interested in a 20 kW unit and that within two months they would make a public announcement.
Giuseppe Levi, a nuclear physicist from INFN (Italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics), helped organize last Friday’s demonstration in Bologna. Levi confirmed that the reactor produced about 12 kW and noted that the energy was not of chemical origin since there was no measurable hydrogen consumption. Levi and other scientists plan to produce a technical report on the design and execution of their evaluation of the reactor.
Meanwhile Focardi And Rossi’s paper on the reactor has been rejected by peer-reviewed journals on the basis that they don’t have a current theory to explain the results of the reaction.
“Rossi and Focardi have applied for a patent that has also been partially rejected in a preliminary report. According to the report, “As the invention seems, at least at first, to offend against the generally accepted laws of physics and established theories, the disclosure should be detailed enough to prove to a skilled person conversant with mainstream science and technology that the invention is indeed feasible.”
So here we have once again deliberate acts of sabotage by establishment science against new energy solutions simply because they threaten scientific dogma and fanatical establishment beliefs.
Rather predictably we also have a deafening silence from the world’s controlled corporate media who must be wondering how long they can maintain the silence before critical mass is achieved? (if you pardon the pun).
Time after time we are seeing legitimate attempts to bring new energy technologies thwarted by mainstream fear.
If they can get working devices to market this year then none of the mainstream peer review will matter anyway. As Focardi rightly says “he has not to convince people by chattering, he has to make a reactor that work and go to sell it, as we are doing.”
