19.10.16: Nuclear Fusion – The Permanent Energy Solution?


Limitless fuel, inherent safety and no radioactive waste make nuclear fusion the ultimate energy solution. It presents a permanent solution to all humankinds energy requirements. After spending four years conducting research at the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE), home to the world’s largest fusion experiment (JET), David gave us a status update on the progress made in this critical area of energy research.

David studied Physics at Oxford (Somerville College 2008-2012) and went on to study a PhD which was a collaboration between the University of York and the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE), mainly based at CCFE. He is now an Energy Analyst at Poyry working on energy scenario modelling.
