UKAEA has launched the Fusion Industry Challenges, a £2m project to support the development of the UK fusion private sector, sustain clean energy needs in the UK and facilitate the UK’s transition into an exporter of fusion technologies.
The Fusion Industry Challenges aim to accelerate the growth of the UK’s fusion industry. They will run as a £2m pilot project with a central focus on two specific challenges:
Accelerating fusion power plant design with next-generation digital tools
Reducing fusion power plant fuel requirement with advanced production and handling technology for hydrogen isotopes
