Our world-leading science and engineering aims to put fusion energy on the grid.
JET Decommissioning and Repurposing
The next chapter of JET’s life cycle will shape the future of fusion engineering through scientific research and innovative thinking, such as research into efficient detritiation, the repurposing of JET’s assets and support systems, and development of remote handling capabilities.
The Joint European Torus (JET) is the world’s biggest and most powerful tokamak.
Hosted at Culham Centre for Fusion Energy, it is the focal point of the European fusion research programme.
MAST Upgrade is the UK’s national fusion experiment.
MAST Upgrade is one of the newest and advanced tokamak experiments in the world – trialling a promising design for compact fusion devices known as spherical tokamaks. It is also tackling one of fusion’s biggest challenges: plasma exhaust.
The Spherical Tokamak for Energy Production (STEP) is an exciting and ambitious programme to accelerate the delivery of fusion energy.
It aims to deliver an integrated design for a commercially-viable fusion power plant based on the spherical tokamak concept.
