As fusion becomes more technically viable, it's time to assess whether it's worth the money because breakthroughs in the lab don’t guarantee success in the marketplace. [Read More]

Back when I studied geology in grad school, the long-term future of energy had a single name: nuclear fusion.
Thanks to advances in physics research, materials science and supercomputing, scientists are building and testing multiple fusion reactor designs.
About a dozen fusion startups with innovative ideas have the private investment they need to see what they can achieve.
And fusion startups aiming to build smaller reactors, which would be cheaper, easier and quicker construct, are proliferating.
Indeed, the dream of fusion power now seems certain to neither die or remain merely a dream.
