Cold Fusion:  Alternative Energy Revolution

The problem, right now, is that alternative energy has become sort of a cliche.  When most of us think of alternative energy, we think of Solar Power or Wind Turbines.  We view these systems as contributors to our nation's electrical grid but I don't think anyone really believes they will replace the status quo.  In order for solar or wind systems to compete with traditional fossil fuel generating plants, they have to take up a lot of real-estate.  Wind Farms containing hundreds of monstrous wind turbines strung over miles of hilltops and acre upon acre of solar collectors are not really expected to replace traditional power plants.  

When it comes to a real alternative energy source the "bigger is better" model may be replaced with just the opposite!  Apparently, a new energy system has been developed that is relatively small, cheap and simple to operate, has no hazardous waste and which produces a tremendous amount of energy.  Sound too good to be true?  Read on .....

I recently ran across an article about an Italian inventor named Andrea Rossi who has come up with a way to produce a lot of energy with a small amount of fuel.  The process is referred to as, "Cold Fusion."  The idea is not new.  It was first reported in 1989 but the process was never able to be verified or duplicated by the scientific community.  Mr. Rossi claims to have developed a Cold Fusion Reactor that works!  One of his units has apparently been up and running for two years providing heat for a factory. In October 2011, Mr. Rossi plans to setup a one megawatt plant in Athens, Greece.  So it seems that this man is well beyond the development stage and is ready to make his devices available commercially.  

So, what is the big deal?  If Rossi's Cold Fusion device works it will be nothing short of a revolution in energy production!  Here is why.  The device claims to be able to produce 10 kilowatts of heat power, while only consuming a fraction of that using nickel powder and hydrogen as the fuel.  When nickel powder is placed in a reactor with pressurized hydrogen gas and other undisclosed catalysts and heated to about 500 degrees celsius a nuclear reaction begins to take place. However, no precious metals or radioactive substances are placed in the reactor and there is no radioactivity in the cell after the unit is turned off ... and no nuclear waste!  According to Rossi, his device uses a very small amount of nickel powder, about 100 grams in a period of six months.  It uses about one gram of hydrogen per day.  If this turns out to be true, it will be many times cheaper than energy produced from fossil fuel sources such as coal or natural gas.  Rossi's power plants are simple to operate with no extensive training needed.  "You simply flip a switch to turn it on!" 

According to Rossi, his devices (which he refers to as modules,) can be connected in series or parallel to increase the temperature or thermal quantity.  His one megawatt plant in Greece will consist of 125 modules. Here is the best part!  Rossi's energy modules are being manufactured right here in the U.S.A. in Miami, Florida.  After the installation of the plant in Greece in October, Rossi plans to start taking orders.  Keep your fingers crossed for Andrea Rossi and his Cold Fusion Device.  This could very well be the answer to our energy problems in this country and around the world.
