If I were in Dr. Rossi’s boots, I would not be building a 1 mw plant to prove the validity of the e-cat, I would build a car.
If it were up to me, I would modify a steam car to run on e-cat, then I would drive around the country showing off my wares. I would set up a two-car rig with a follower car containing a webcam. I would live-broadcast the webcam on the internet. I would then travel to every university with a doctoral program in physics or engineering, and invite the professors to have a look.
I think that a rig like this would be much more compelling than a 1 mw plant. For starter, people will search the plant to see where it gets its power from. It’ll be hard to convince people that it doesn’t have a wire. Even if it is mounted on transparent pillars people will doubt. Professors are not likely to fly to Greece to check this thing out. Without touching it, they won’t believe it.
There are two sources if steam cars that would attract me. The first is Cyclone Power. They have a steam engine that should be very easy to adapt both to the rossi and to an existing car. The other, interestingly, is Jay Leno. He has a number of steam cars. He has an extreme interest in cars. I bet bones he would love to be part of the biggest revolution in the automotive industry since Henry Ford himself, let alone everything else that has to do with energy. He has the capitol and the talent to make the integration.
As Rossi is European, I expect that he would recognize the trouble of the Atlantic ocean. As such, it would make sense to him to develop two, maybe three such steam cars. One for Europe, one for the Americas, and maybe one for Asia. Even with all of that, he would have to manufacture far fewer e-cats than he will to get his one megawatt plant going.
