“The biggest pressing thing is: Can you have this ready in time to be impactful around climate change?

MIT Technology Review - James Temple - Sr. editor, energy

By some point in 2025, the scientists at Commonwealth Fusion Systems expect, their machine will blow past that threshold, generating 10 times more energy than it consumes. That demonstration, they say, will enable the startup to develop full-size facilities capable of delivering as much electricity as a small coal plant by the early 2030s. (Detailed Article Here)

Fusion Energy Is No Longer An Experiment

Fusion reaction of 59 megajoules provides the details

February 9th, 2022 a large group of dedicated scientists and engineers provided the proof that fusion energy is no longer an experiment.

As scientists and engineers usually do, they presented a highly detailed and technically difficult explanation of their findings. So, for those of us without a degree in physics, I will attempt to explain what has been achieved.

This 2-min read shares thoughtful insight on the direction of Fusion Energy. Including the scientists' expectations for this world changing technology

In a statement, Paul Methven, STEP programme director at UKAEA, said: “The shortlisting of sites is a significant step for the programme as it helps bring this challenging, long-term endeavour to life in the here and now. It also increases our focus as we push on with design and delivery of what we hope is the world’s first fusion power plant prototype.
