Webinar on DOE Fusion Plans to Commercialize Fusion, February 16

February 5, 2023

A webinar titled "Unlocking New Possibilities for Commercial Fusion" has been scheduled to discuss the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) recent efforts towards the commercialization of fusion energy for Thursday February 16, 1-2 PM EST.

The announcement states that "Providing energy from fusion - the same reaction that powers the sun - is one of the National Academy of Engineering's 14 Grand Challenges for Engineering in the 21st century. While there have been considerable advances towards achieving commercial fusion, many significant challenges still remain."

During this webinar, Dr. Richard Hawryluk, Senior Technical Advisor at the DOE Office of Science, and chair of the 2021 NASEM consensus study report Bringing Fusion to the U.S. Grid; and Dr. Scott Hsu, DOE's Lead Fusion Coordinator, will present on DOE's strategic initiatives to accelerate the technical and commercial viability of fusion energy, in partnership with the private sector.

They will also highlight critical areas of research for stakeholders across sectors to support Biden-Harris Administration's bold decadal vision for commercial fusion energy.

There is no cost for this webinar, but registration is required. A confirmation email will be issued prior to the event containing the webinar URL.
