Fusion power plant
The raw materials for fusion are available everywhere in almost unlimited quantities. A fusion power plant will not produce any climate-impairing gases and promises favourable safety properties. Fusion could therefore make a lasting contribution to energy supply of the future.
If research goes according to plan – this being 20 years of planning, constructing, and operating ITER and the same for a subsequent demonstration reactor – fusion could yield economically useful power in about 50 years. With about 1000 megawatts of electric power a fusion power plant will be particularly suitable for base load power supply.
