A new international conference at London’s Science Museum will showcase the goals and vision of the global fusion community.
FUSION22 will explore the exciting developments in fusion that could lead to near limitless and low carbon energy in the future. It will also address the challenges the industry is facing to help accelerate the pace of development.
The hybrid event on Tuesday, October 18 will cover a range of thought-provoking panel sessions and keynote speeches, including:
- WHERE DOES FUSION FIT IN? What does the future of global energy supply look like and what is the problem fusion will solve?
- WHAT FUSION NEEDS: What are the challenges we face in getting fusion on the grid and how can we overcome these?
- WHERE ELSE WILL FUSION TECHNOLOGY BE USED? Where is fusion technology likely to have the biggest impact outside of energy?
- HOW DO WE ENSURE FUSION WORKS FOR EVERYONE? What can we do to make sure the benefits from fusion energy act as a ‘force for good’ in the world?
- HOW WILL FUSION BE FUNDED? What is required across of public and private funding to ensure fusion makes it to market?
Prof. Ian Chapman, UK Atomic Energy Authority Chief Executive, said:
“We are thrilled to be bringing FUSION22 to the iconic Science Museum this October. It’s a unique opportunity to showcase the many exciting developments happening in the world of fusion right now, and hear from the people striving to deliver safe, sustainable, low carbon electricity to the grid.
“It’s never been clearer that changes are needed to protect the planet for future generations, and fusion energy offers so much potential. But it’s also one of the greatest scientific and engineering challenges of them all. FUSION22 brings us together to face these challenges head on, because together we believe fusion is coming.”
