An MIT spin-out company is planning to cross the commercial nuclear fusion finish line before anyone else, and big money is backing this game-changing tech that will dictate our energy future by promising unlimited zero-carbon energy–the holy grail. By 2025, Commonwealth Fusion Systems (CFS)–an MIT spin-out–plans to see is SPARC project become the first fusion reactor to show “net energy gain” by 2025. By 2030, it intends to make nuclear fusion a commercial reality, disrupting all those nuclear fusion experiments elsewhere in the world that have been working towards this a lot longer, and disrupting energy–forever.
Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates believes it. He was the first big backer of CFS. And now, Norway’s oil giant–Equinor–is throwing money behind it.
