More than 50 of the world’s foremost scientists meet in Canada for the first time VANCOUVER, CANADA – An annual gathering focusing on cutting-edge fusion energy research is being held outside the U.S. for the first time, with Vancouver-based clean energy leader General Fusion hosting the event from August 1-4. The Exploratory Plasma and Fusion Research Workshop (EPR), which has previously been held at major U.S. research centers such as the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, will bring fusion industry experts from around the world to Vancouver. They will focus on overcoming key technical challenges with solutions that will unlock the potential of fusion to provide a clean, safe, and cost-effective source of energy.

General Fusion’s scientists working with Microsoft’s software experts to explore experimental plasma data in greater depth than previously possible Vancouver, Canada - General Fusion, an industry leading clean energy company, is partnering with Microsoft’s Developer Experience Team to unlock critical insights into its experimental results using cloud-based big data techniques. These insights will help forge the company’s solution to the challenge of developing a practical commercial fusion energy technology. This collaboration was announced at the Microsoft Build 2017 developer conference in Seattle on May 12, and joins General Fusion’s plasma scientists together with Microsoft’s specialized software development team to build a new, cutting-edge computational platform - a platform that will enable General Fusion to mine over 100 terabytes of data from the records of its 150,000 experiments for new knowledge about how fusion energy is created and controlled.

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.
