Eurofusion – Realising Fusion Energy


EUROfusion’s mission is to pave the way for fusion power reactors.

To do so, the Consortium funds the research at 28 of its members (in 26 EU member states) on the basis of the “European Roadmap to the Realisation of Fusion Energy” as a joint programme within Euratom Horizon Europe.

Fusion is the process that powers stars like the Sun. On Earth, it promises a safe and near-limitless clean energy source.

For instance, fusion energy would generate huge amounts of energy from mere grams of abundant fuels found worldwide. In this context, the EU-funded EUROfusion project will bring together experts and facilities from across Europe to achieve the European fusion roadmap, which provides a clear and structured way forward to commercial energy from fusion.

Based on the updated roadmap, the project will help move from lab to industry with the design, construction and operation of a demonstration fusion power plant (DEMO). The aim is to deliver fusion electricity to the grid early in the second half of the century.
