Electric Fusions Systems was delighted to have a Q&A interview with our CEO Ryan Wood with editor Tony Gerillo with Fusion Energy News International.
Introduction from Jan 17, 2023 article:
“Fusion energy’s recent “historical” event at the National Ignition Facility (NIF) has brought a great deal of attention to the Fusion Industry in general. Within the industry the various types of processes for producing fusion energy are well known. For example, the NIF experiment was “inertial confinement fusion” or ICF and ITER the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor is magnetic confinement fusion or MCF. Most of these technologies produce energy in the form of heat. The heat is used to produce steam that then spins a turbine to produce electricity.”
“There are a few companies designing fusion reactors that directly produce electricity. To be clear, to date no company or laboratory has harnessed fusion energy and created commercially viable power (electricity).”
“Electric Fusion Systems (EFS) in Colorado, USA is designing and testing direct electricity producing fusion reactors using a form of aneutronic fusion called “lithium-proton nuclear fusion”. In this Q & A article with Ryan S. Wood, CEO and Co-founder of EFS we will discuss how the technology works, it’s benefits and challenges, technology uses, funding and time to scale among other important topics.”
