AI will accelerate path to clean fusion energy in fight against climate change

Digital twin creates a virtually unlimited space for exploration and scientific discovery, following record global temperatures, writes Tokamak Energy Co-Founder and Executive Vice-Chairman David Kingham The year 2023 was officially the hottest ever. The EU’s climate service primarily attributes the record temperatures, almost 1.5C higher than the long-term average, to humans burning fossil fuels. Alarming…

Why fusion energy is essential for global energy security and a path to net zero

Fusion – the energy that powers the Sun – will be a critical partner to complement renewable and other low carbon technologies and sustain a net zero world. Not only will fusion energy be able to provide power to the grid in the form of reliable, constant, on demand, low-cost electricity for homes and businesses,…

Why fusion deserves a place at the top table at COP26

Why fusion deserves a place at the top table at COP26

What if I told you that there’s an abundant and limitless energy source that a small handful of companies around the world are on the path to commercialising? What if I told you that this energy source was clean at the point of generation with enormous opportunities for global economies to decarbonise at scale? What…

Transformative fusion technology can help respond to Code Red

“Code Red” was the stark headline following the recent report from the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Human activity is changing the climate in unprecedented and in some cases, irreversible ways, the IPCC reported. Despite the numerous warnings relating to climate change over recent years, this, I suspect, still came as a further…

Why our spherical tokamak design holds the key to commercial fusion energy

In the 1980s, Tokamak Energy founder Alan Sykes investigated theoretically how squashing up a tokamak from a ring-doughnut to a cored-apple shape would affect its results. He showed that this new type of fusion machine would improve performance and increase stability.
