Fusion: The True Hydrogen Economy.

Seventy years of fusion development have brought into focus the potential energy of the sun.

The sun, the ultimate hydrogen engine, produces all the light and heat on earth. On earth though, we only use hydrogen as an energy carrier. Fusion researchers have found they can transform more potential energy from the same atoms by combining rather than separating hydrogen atoms. Traditionally, hydrogen’s energy is released when chemical bonds are broken. With reliance on physics, hydrogen can be fused together, resulting in a higher energy yield.

 

Three factors put fusion at the forefront of conversations about the planet’s clean energy future:

Building value around new and existing technology.

The core technologies required for magnetized target fusion (MTF) make our approach practical.

We invent and maintain intellectual property where we can achieve the greatest gains. We innovate where we can maximize the application of proven industrial technologies. This balance allows us to design a cost-effective fusion energy facility.

Leading us to a net-zero future.

“Today, fusion energy is considered one of the key technologies capable of leading us to a net-zero future, with the International Atomic Energy Association ranking it “among the most environmentally friendly sources of energy.”

The art of building winning partnerships.

General Fusion will maximize the value of fusion technology by taking it out of the lab to industry leaders.

We are specialists and we know the best work happens with multidisciplinary teams. Establishing successful partnerships worldwide allows us to pay attention to characteristics of what energy consumers need all over the planet. To fulfill our mission, the design of our commercial fusion plant must benefit users anywhere.
