Why we need fusion
More than 80% of the world’s energy comes from fossil fuels. Climate change and diminishing fuel reserves mean the race is on to find alternative, sustainable technologies to supply a growing global population. With no greenhouse gas emissions, inherent safety features and virtually limitless fuels, fusion could have a key role to play in the energy market of the future.
Who we are
Culham Centre for Fusion Energy is the UK’s national fusion research laboratory. From theoretical physics to operating two major experiments and carrying out advanced reactor engineering, we lead the world in putting this transformative energy technology on the grid.
