Clean energy company preparing to scale up Vancouver, Canada - General Fusion has revealed that one of the most critical and complex areas of its research and development – plasma injector technology - has now reached the minimum performance levels required for a larger scale, integrated prototype. This marks a significant step in the company’s progress toward development of its fusion energy technology.

Chief Scientist discussed advances towards clean, safe and abundant energy Vancouver, Canada - “Private companies are accelerating the development of commercially viable fusion energy,” the Canadian fusion pioneer Dr. Michel Laberge told the International Energy Agency’s Fusion Power Coordinating Committee in Paris last week. Speaking alongside directors from Europe’s major publicly-funded fusion programs at the committee’s meeting on January 25, Dr. Laberge outlined General Fusion’s technical advances and plans for developing a prototype.

The founders of Amazon and Microsoft are putting their fortunes into little-known fusion energy companies. Jonathan Frochtzwajg digs into a story that has strange parallels with fiction. General Fusion is just one of a pack of private fusion firms to catch the attention of physicists and investors. Unencumbered by red tape, these venture-backed companies believe that they can find a faster, cheaper way to fusion than government-sponsored projects, and some very influential people agree: besides Bezos, Microsoft cofounder Paul Allen and PayPal cofounder Peter Thiel are also backing firms at the forefront of fusion development.

After decades of slow progress and massive investment, some fusion power researchers are changing tactics You can accuse fusion power advocates of being overly optimistic but never of thinking small. Fusion occurs when two elements combine, or “fuse,” together to form a new, third element, converting matter to energy. It is the process that powers the sun, and the fusion world's marquee projects are accordingly grand.
