General Fusion Inc.

Description:

General Fusion is developing fusion energy, a potentially transformational technology for the energy industry: a safe, limitless, clean, emission-free, and cost-effective alternative for power generation. General Fusion’s proprietary Magnetized Target Fusion (MTF) technology represents the fastest, most practical, and lowest-cost path to commercial fusion power. This project will construct and demonstrate, at power plant scale, the primary subsystems and physics underpinning General Fusion’s technology. Simulation models will be tuned and used to complete the design of the world’s first full-scale fusion energy system using commercially-viable technology. This verification of the technical and economic viability of General Fusion’s MTF technology will be a major milestone for this game-changing technology.
