Microsoft and Helion want to build the world’s first fusion plant and seize energy’s ‘Holy Grail’

Lisa Stiffler of GeekWire reports on a fusion power agreement.

The C3 Take
  • Helion has signed an agreement with Microsoft to build the world’s first fusion power plant by 2028.
  • Microsoft would use Helion-generated energy to power its data centers and operations.
  • The goal to bring a fusion power plant online before the end of the decade is ambitious, but if it is successful it would pave the way for a cleaner energy future.
  • Private sector leadership is unlocking clean energy innovation.

“Engineers for decades have chased the promise of fusion energy — a potentially limitless source of carbon-free power. There are demonstration fusion reactors running or under construction around the world. But none of the commercial devices — including Helion’s reactors — have been able to produce more electricity than they require to operate, let alone generate enough power to send to the grid. Some in the clean energy industry are skeptical it will ever work.”
