Fusion is a source of energy released by forcing atomic nuclei together—the same process that powers the sun. The primary fuel for fusion is derived from ordinary water.
It offers hope for an ideal energy source, both in terms of our security and our environment.
Fusion could be the base of a new 21st Century Industrial base. It has the potential to provide low cost, carbon-free and nuclear proliferation-free energy to all nations.
The question is: will the United States lead in the research and development of fusion energy? Or will we let our competitors lead, and depend on others for our energy.
It’s time for America to take leadership and increase our investment in fusion energy.
The American Security Project believes that with political will and sustained investment in fusion, the U.S. can make substantial advances in fusion research within a decade. We can get power onto the grid.
This ASP Fusion website gives a broad overview of fusion’s promise, and the status of efforts to commercialize fusion.
