He was quoted in the World Nuclear News article “UK nuclear industry faces prospect of Euratom exit” alongside Tom Greatrex, Chief Executive of the Nuclear Industry Association, Ian Chapman, CEO of the UK Atomic Energy …

Incredible response to published evidence for smaller tokamaks

Tokamak Energy have a new video on YouTube – Alan Costley talks about the incredible response to his paper “On the power and size of tokamak fusion pilot plants and reactors” and what this means. The paper is being read well beyond the immediate fusion community. Alan gives his thoughts on why.

Tokamak Energy comment on MIT fusion pressure record

A team at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) recently created the highest plasma pressure ever recorded using its Alcator C-Mod tokamak. Tokamak Energy were consulted about this achievement by The Guardian and Professional Engineer. In the article by the Guardian, Tokamak Energy is mentioned as a UK startup company pursuing fusion. David …

Tokamak Energy feature in French Futuremag documentary

In June, French journalist David Paturel visited Milton Park to interview David Kingham for a Futuremag documentary. The film, which is broadcast in French, is about fusion energy in general, particularly the ITER project. Tokamak Energy are pleased to be featured towards the end as one of the newer, novel approaches. The film was aired on 1st October …

New video on Levitation & Superconductors

How do you make a magnet levitate? And how is this related to fusion energy? In this video, Tokamak Energy Magnet Engineer Greg Brittles tells us about high themperature superconductors for making tokamak magnets, as well as demonstrating the superconductor’s most mesmerising property – levitation.

Tokamak Energy featured in BBC radio programme “Elements”

“Could we finally be about to crack this source of potentially unlimited clean energy – thanks in part to a plethora of private sector tech start-ups? Laurence Knight travels to one such company, Tokamak Energy…” Listen to the programme Elements: Hydrogen – Fusion by the BBC World Service.

New research on fusion triple product and power gain

New evidence published this week opens up a route to faster fusion energy development with smaller fusion machines. Modelling work by Dr Alan Costley for Tokamak Energy indicates that small-scale fusion is the new way forward for fusion power because energy surplus is not linked to reactor size.
