ASP’s new White Paper report, “Fusion Power – A 10 Year Plan to Energy Security” provides a detailed plan on how to accelerate the development of fusion power.
Why do we need fusion power?
The American economy depends on reliable sources of power. Over the next several decades, almost all of the power plants in the U.S. will need to be replaced, and America’s dependence on fossil fuels presents serious national security concerns – they sap our economy, exacerbate climate change, and constrict U.S. foreign policy.
Fusion energy holds great promise to meet America’s energy needs. Energy from fusion is clean, safe, secure and abundant. However, given current support for fusion, commercializing fusion power remains decades away.
ASP’s report lays out an “Apollo Program” for fusion power that will lead to demonstration-level fusion power within a decade. To get there, the report provides several recommendations. For example, the President should appoint a Fusion Power Commissioner to organize, streamline and lead on fusion power development.
