The C3 Take
  • In 2021 private funding for nuclear fusion technology reached $3 billion.
  • Nuclear fusion is often hailed as the “Holy Grail” for energy, and has the potential to essentially provide an infinite amount of clean power.
  • Startups such as Commonwealth Fuel have recently made impressive advancements in the field of nuclear fusion and many believe that nuclear fusion could be commercially viable within the next decade.
  • Innovators and entrepreneurs are essential to advancing clean energy solutions.

“It’s clear that nuclear fusion can work at scale — just look at the stars. For 70 years physicists have dreamed of bottling that star power in the form of fusion reactors that would power the electric grid with the same limitless, zero-carbon reactions that make the sun shine. This Holy Grail has long been advertised as just 20 or 30 years away, but fusion fans have refused to give up the faith.”
