The Canadian government has announced a CAD49.3 million ($37.5m) investment in General Fusion. The funding will help General Fusion create technology and support its project to develop a first-of-its-kind large-scale prototype plant that will demonstrate a practical approach to commercialising electricity from fusion energy. “General Fusion’s technology has the potential to revolutionise how sustainable energy is generated and position British Columbia—and Canada—as a global leader in fusion technology,” the announcement said.
