From the front lines of fusion.
The need for safe, sustainable, limitless energy is as great now as it’s ever been, both to mitigate climate concerns and because creating clean energy resources raises global living standards for everyone. Access to clean energy, particularly in developing countries, leads to economic equality, energy independence, job creation and overall geopolitical stability.
The TAE Technologies modeling group has won a 2018 US Department of Energy INCITE (Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment) award on the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility’s Theta supercomputer. The award is for 31MCH (million core hours), which is equivalent to 100MCH on ALCF’s Blue Gene supercomputer, Mira, and will be used to accelerate our research in creating clean fusion energy.
We are proud to now announce that this week we have achieved colliding and merging of field-reverse configurations (FRCs) on Norman, which is another critical marker on our path to success.
Our explainer video will help illustrate the work we’re doing with field-reverse configurations (FRCs), and offer insights into how we operate Norman.
I am pleased to announce that as of October 4, Tri Alpha Energy will now be known as TAE Technologies. The name change reflects our growing tech footprint and adjacent innovations developed in pursuit of our core work in fusion energy.
