Race is on to commercialize fusion energy

Fusion power is moving out of government-run science labs into the private sector. Catalyzed by the public-private partnership methods which created the commercial space industry, fusion startups are attracting increasing interest among investors and accelerating the race to commercial fusion power.

Since 2018, the Fusion Industry Association (FIA) has played an important role in this process. In the past, I have written about two FIA member companies, LLP Fusion and Commonwealth Fusion.

In an exclusive interview, Andrew Holland, director of the Fusion Industry Association, spoke to Asia Times’ Jonathan Tennenbaum about the genesis of the commercial fusion power industry and the FIA’s work in its promotion.
