26 Jan Canada could be a world leader in nuclear fusion by 2030, report suggests
– Jon Hernandez, CBC News:
Scientists are calling on the federal government to invest more in fusion research as a way to produce massive amounts of clean energy and radically reduce dependance on fossil fuels.
Michael Delage, the chief technology officer at Burnaby-based General Fusion, says the goal is to develop a prototype fusion power plant by 2030 — that could eventually be scaled up to replace oil and gas.
“It’s something that could be competitive with fossil fuels on the grid,” said Delage.
