The Fusion Industry Association

Hosted Its 1st Policy Conference 

The key to this successful conference was bringing all the right people together.  Andrew Holland, the CEO of the association brought together a congregation of fusion industry leaders, experts from science and policy, bipartisan government advocates and the investors that need to know how regulations will be implemented.

The Important Take-Aways:

  • Moving fusion regulations away from current      fission requirements

  • Further development of public/private partnerships

  • Developing the framework for regulation

Fusion Energy Regulation

"Putting it in Writing"

By Tony Gerillo - EIC FENi

As the only news outlet in attendance at the Fusion Industry Association’s 1st annual policy meeting, it turns out to be a responsibility not to be taken lightly.  Unpacking the day’s full agenda deserves a deep look into what the industry has achieved and what the next steps in regulation will be.

 

It is clear that fusion energy is inherently safe, and that regulation will become a matter of getting the wording right so that society can move past the nomenclature of nuclear atomic energy having a negative impact on humans. Positive branding of fusion is difficult due to the negative history around nuclear fission, even though the only trait they share is in that “nuclear” appears in both names.

Where will fusion reactor regulations come from?

By REUTERS AND MICHAEL STARR AND JERUSALEM POST STAFF

Some 24,700 acres of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone were on fire on Sunday. Commissioner for Human Rights of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Lyudmyla Denisova said that these fires could potentially spread radionuclides to Belarus and the rest of Europe, spreading the radiation.
