UKAEA welcomes new funding for Tokamak Energy

Selection in UK Government’s Advanced Modular Reactor projects is positive news for fusion

Tokamak Energy, a private company working to develop compact fusion power based in Milton Park, Didcot, has recently been awarded £10 million from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, as part of the UK Government’s Advanced Modular Reactor (AMR) project.

UKAEA’s Chief Technology Officer Tim Bestwick welcomed the announcement: “This is really good news – not just for Tokamak Energy, but also for the wider fusion community,” he said. “This £10 million Advanced Modular Reactor award recognizes the potential importance of fusion in future low-carbon energy generation, and illustrates the depth of talent in this field in the UK.”
