Can Future Energy needs be met sustainably?

By CERN. Published on 20 August 2015 in:
August 2015, Events, , ,

Global energy use is increasing rapidly, driven by rising living standards in developing countries.  Although the percentage of primary energy provided by burning fossil fuels is falling slowly from its current value of some 80%, their contribution is rising in absolute terms and is expected to increase by around 25% by 2035.  This is bad news given the need to decarbonise (to reduce air pollution as well as to moderate climate change): is it inevitable?

Core of fusion experiment completed

By Ian Randall. Published on 20 January 2012 in:
News, , , , ,

The last major part of the Wendelstein 7-X fusion experiment was installed on 21 December last year. The addition of the 14 tonne final part of the device – the lid of the thermally insulating outer shell – sees the completion of the ring-like base machine, at the Greifswald branch of the Max Planck Institute of Plasma Physics, which will begin operation in 2014.

Fusion research aims to draw energy from the fusion of atomic nuclei – the same power source which drives the sun. To achieve this, hydrogen plasma must be superheated to temperatures above 100 million degrees, within the confines of…
