The one from Brillouin Energy Corp appears to be a competitor.

There's another one using a different principle called Brilliant Light Power https://brilliantlightpower.com/.

I'm still waiting to make my nuclear powered bike.

I can't figure out what his endgame is. His approach doesn't really make sense if the goal is to monetize a scam invention. Unless he really does think it works; he may be able to delude himself sufficiently to keep that belief alive.
Very possible a small group of ol' guys with a little dementia playing around in their "lab" drinking vino? It just does not seem like serious science any more. This phenomena, if real, is such a game changer, that it has HUGE national security implications. There would be a plethora of blacked out window vans, SUVs and helios measuring every parameter known to man from a distance. Every three letter agency in the world would be all over this.... and scientists have "disappeared" into the ether for much, much less...

Well, never mind all that. There would be a 10KW steam turbine that's been running for five years on eCat power, powering his building. Even just that would prove that he had something. But he can't even pull that off.

Your attempt to derail this thread into your usual political BS noted, and ignored.

How is that "Political BS?" He's stating a little TOO obvious a fact, maybe. You're acting as though he's infringing on your right to be so easy fooled. It's not like anyone has ever been able to prevent that. Stop making your 'Right' a political issue.

So it seems that Rossi has decided that the place feel that he “has to arrive” at is a self-sustaining electricity generator which sounds like a more “impossible invention” than the heater. However, as impossible it may sound, based on all I have learned about him over the years I think he will give it his very best shot to achieve his goal, and he might actually succeed.

This is so awesome.

That's interesting. But it looks like real science.
