The C3 Take
  • UK-based JET Laboratory has smashed world records by producing 11 megawatts of power over five seconds from nuclear fusion.
  • While the amount of power is small, only enough to boil about 60 kettles worth of water, it represents a significant breakthrough for fusion technology.
  • The world has recently made impressive advancements in nuclear fusion which could be important to reaching climate goals.

“Operating the power plants of the future based on fusion would produce no greenhouse gases and only very small amounts of short-lived radioactive waste.”
