High Potential Opportunity - Fusion Energy (Oxfordshire)
Join the pioneering revolution for long-term clean energy through fusion technology.
Prime your company for success. Support research and development into innovative advanced and small modular reactors as well as assess their feasibility and accelerate the development of promising designs. The UK is at the forefront of fusion technology with £400m in funding from the government over the next few decades. UKAEA operates the Joint European Torus (JET) - the world's largest and most powerful tokamak - on behalf of its European partners, and the Mega Amp Spherical Tokamak (MAST) Upgrade device. The UK will host a prototype fusion power plant, which the government-backed programme plans to build by 2040.
Private sector companies, First Light Fusion, Tokamak Energy and General Fusion have ambitious research programmes that are also progressing rapidly and are attracting new investors and collaborators. Tokamak Energy’s ST40 high field spherical tokamak is already attracting international collaboration. General Fusion has agreed to build a demonstration plant at UKAEA Culham. First Light Fusion has developed the world’s largest electromagnetic launcher dedicated to fusion energy research. Collaborate with a world leading cluster and benefit from growing national and international interest and investment in fusion energy research.
