Our investment in Tokamak Energy

In 2022, Tokamak Energy achieved a world-first with its privately funded spherical tokamak, the ST40, by reaching temperatures of 100 million degrees Celsius, which is the threshold for fusion energy. While several government laboratories have recorded temperatures of 100 million degrees in conventional tokamaks, this milestone has been reached in just five years for a cost of less than £50 million and in a much more compact fusion device.
