Nuclear Fusion Powers Stars. Could It One Day Electrify Earth?

Nuclear Fusion Powers Stars. Could It One Day Electrify Earth?

Some companies are exploring different fuels as well as different designs. California-based TAE Technologies, which has been in business since 1998, is building a nuclear reactor that’s designed to fuse hydrogen with boron-11 by colliding plasma “smoke rings” inside a long, cigar-shaped chamber. This setup would need to hit temperatures even higher than those in tokamaks. But if scaled-up versions work, they could generate electricity without the neutron fusillade.

For a Clean Energy Future, Our Relationship to the Grid Must Change

For a Clean Energy Future, Our Relationship to the Grid Must Change

Our current domestic electrical grids are woefully inept to integrate necessary renewable energy sources. The answer to solving this problem lies within a new approach to energy use: one that focuses on optimizing the way customers and their technologies interact with the grid.

Why TAE is Pursuing Hydrogen-Boron Fusion

Reporting on challenges with tritium fuel for fusion, Science notes TAE Technologies has “decided to simply forgo tritium” to “use plain hydrogen and boron.” TAE’s hydrogen-boron fusion will “require higher temperatures than [deuterium-tritium], but the [company thinks] that’s a price worth paying to avoid tritium hassles” and produce the cleanest, safest fusion reaction.

The Frontrunners in the Trillion-Dollar Race for Limitless Fusion Power

With energy prices on the rise, along with demands for energy independence and an urgent need for carbon-free power, plans to walk away from nuclear energy are now being revised in Japan, South Korea, and even Germany. TAE’s approach, which involves creating a fusion reaction at incredibly high heat, has a key advantage.

TAE Technologies Partners with Japan’s Institute for Fusion Science (NIFS) for Fusion Fuel Research

TAE Technologies, the world’s largest private fusion energy company, today announced a landmark partnership with Japan’s National Institute for Fusion Science (NIFS) that enables the two organizations to test the effects of hydrogen-boron (p-B11) fusion reactions in the NIFS Large Helical Device (LHD). The results of this research have the potential to unlock a new milestone in TAE’s mission to develop commercial fusion power with p-B11, the cleanest and most affordable fuel for fusion cycles.
