According to the Free Energy Truth, the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change has been monitoring the development of Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat Motor. The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) is UK’s equivalent to the Department of Energy (DoE) of the US. In response to Free Energy Truth’s inquiry, DECC issued a memo in behalf of DECC Chief Scientific Adviser, David MacKay. The content of the memo is as follows:
“ DECC is aware of this alleged power source: the DECC CSA, David MacKay FRS, has read some of the literature and has met Sven Kulander, who has reviewed an experiment and whose report is on the Defkalion website. The CSA’s judgment is that it is appropriate for DECC to maintain a watch on this sector, with the key trigger for further action being the publication of the work in a reputable peer-refereed journal, including full details so that academic scientists can replicate the results.

Apparently, UK DECC is taking an objective interest on E-Cat Motor as a possible source of clean, cheap and safe energy. This is understandable given the credentials of UK DECC Chief Scientific Adviser. David John Cameron MacKay, FRS is a professor of Natural Philosophy in the Department of Physics at the University of Cambridge. Before he was appointed Chief Scientific Adviser for DECC, MacKay authored the well-known book “Sustainable Energy: Without the Hot Air”. This is a hint that MacKay is interested in cold fusion. Due to the past issues involving cold fusion, it is understandable that MacKay will recommend publication and independent validation of Rossi’s work.
With this public confirmation of interest on E-Cat Motor by one of the world’s powerful countries, it can be expected that the others will follow. Rossi will have to find a way to oblige to validation requests while protecting his proprietary rights.
