INTRODUCTION


The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will organize the First IAEA Workshop on Fusion Enterprises from 13 to 15 June 2018 in Santa Fe, United States of America.

 

OBJECTIVE


The purpose of this meeting is to analyse recent scientific and technical developments and to understand how these can contribute to the progress on fusion as a reliable future source of energy. The aim of the meeting is to become the reference platform for fusion enterprises to analyse their role and contribution towards the progress of fusion.

 

BACKGROUND


This workshop is the first to consider the commercialization path for fusion energy systems. Fusion energy has the potential to satisfy the need for environmentally benign energy, and also providing energy independence — both critically needed today. Despite great progress, the goal of harnessing fusion for electricity production still has long timelines. While international government programmes focus on the realization of fusion power through large scale facilities (~1GWe), the private sector is beginning to consider the rapid development of smaller, simpler and lower power systems (50-150MWe). However, the commercialization path is complex, requiring both government and private support. This workshop therefore seeks to bring together the domain experts and stakeholders for private fusion development for the first time to contribute to the discussion.
