The Biological Theory That Explains Why Investors Are Bullish on Fusion

The Biological Theory That Explains Why Investors Are Bullish on Fusion

For a field that has existed for more than 60 years, a lot has happened in fusion research in the last half-decade. In fusion’s case, a trio of technological advances converged in the early 2010s to unleash a wave of innovation. “I think you see this beautiful inflection point in this field where the science maturity and technical capability come together,” said Michl Binderbauer, CEO of TAE Technologies.

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. 

The End of Scarcity

The End of Scarcity

Nuclear fusion is the primordial source of the sun’s energy. For decades, scientists have been trying to re-create it on Earth. Now they’re closer than ever to achieving it—and to unlocking a future of clean power for all.

Nuclear Fusion and Climate Change: ‘We Need Every Technology We Can Get’

Nuclear fusion might be one of the most valuable tools humans will develop to battle climate change—but will we all be underwater by the time it gets here? There is no question that the next few years are critical. “We know that we can do some impact positively with renewables, no question. But we also know that they can’t do 100 percent,” TAE Technologies CEO Michl Binderbauer told Newsweek. “What ideally happens is we maximize solar and wind as soon as we can in areas where it makes sense … And hopefully, very quickly, you’re ramping fusion.”
