Type One Energy Raises $29M to Work on a Crazy Fusion Device

Alan Boyle of Universe Today reports on a fusion company that has raised the $29 million.

The C3 Take
  • Type One Energy has constructed a twisted fusion reactor that is atypical of the other fusion reactors that are being constructed today.
  • Type One’s structure is pretzel-like and twisting which is meant to create a stable magnetic field for plasma containment without having to use massive electrical currents.
  • The $29 million funding round was led by Breakthrough Energy Ventures and will be used to expand operations and staff.

“Stellarator fusion devices rely on a pretzel-shaped torus of magnets to contain the plasma where fusion takes place. They have a design that’s strikingly different from, say, the giant tokamak that’s being built for the multibillion-dollar ITER experimental fusion reactor in France, or the laser-blasting device at the National Ignition Facility in California that recently hit an energy-producing milestone. Some have gone so far as to call stellarators the ‘fusion reactor designed in hell.'”
