C2ES – Climate Solutions: Unleashing the Potential of Fusion Energy

According to recent reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the global climate response must peak carbon dioxide emissions as quickly as possible and turn sharply downward to net-zero by mid-century to limit the worsening impacts of climate change. Achieving that goal requires deploying as many solutions as possible. Developments in fusion energy are accelerating, and the technology is rapidly approaching its “Kitty Hawk” moment, when this technology takes off and the fusion reaction releases more energy than is required to control it. With the right support, fusion energy can be a global climate solution.

In this webinar, experts will discuss the latest developments in fusion energy, its potential role in future comprehensive decarbonization strategies, and overcoming technical barriers, as well as the near- and long-term policies necessary to facilitate commercialization and deployment.
